back scratcher, fly catcher!
In Vietnam they eat them!
Something to hurl into the Sun!
Hot water bottle, stair tripper… um, um…
Takes me back to the ‘80s and Simon Bond’s book “101 uses for a dead cat”, and its sequels. There are hundreds of uses for a dead cat. My favourite was the pencil-sharpener.
Thank – You Poncho ! Did you run this past the Cafe Crew ?
You are correct, Poncho!
Sometimes it is hard to appreciate a cat. It helps if you put a cat to use
Don’t forget snowshoes.
Thrown, they make a great weapon.
Here, I’ll help you with that! 7. Scapegoat 8. Prank Prop 9. Alarm Clock? 10. Eh… I’ve got nothing…
Sorry but I have no use for Poncho.
Hello Poncho: You have a short memory! Only 2 and 1/2 weeks ago you wore 2 cats (one real & one imitation Poo Poo cat) as rubber boots to fetch the newspaper in the rain.
Frankly, Poncho thought of 6 more uses than I could.
Dogs and cats both cuddle, but only cats purr.
Mine doubles as a lap stand for my ipad. With claws.
much to the cats’ and their owners’ displeasure
Carpet shredder, hair spreader, tripping hazard…I once had a copy of the book, “101 Uses For a Dead Cat”. Apparently, there are far fewer uses for live ones….
Having a purring cat on your lap or just hear you can lower your blood pressure.
Disappointing to see so much hatred towards cats. Usually found in people who want cats to behave like dogs and can’t appreciate them for their beauty, and their loving , but independent personalities.
That’s four more than I could have come up with
Several of mine were great for keeping rat dogs out of our yard. More than once saw them riding a mid-size dog out of the yard as it was yipping as it ran out of the yard. Love the YouTube videos of Chihuahuas being put in their places after they bother the cat too much.
I remember my first girlfriend taking my cat and rubbing him across my windshield to clean the dirt, after which that cat gave himself a bath.
They are great at saving your seat. Of course, you won’t get it back. . . . :)
My one neighbor’s cat is great at keeping mice out of our apartments (the other building in our complex has mainly dog owners and lots of mice). The other neighbor’s cat is very affectionate and happy to sit in our laps to cheer us up. Some of our residents have groceries or deliveries from restaurants delivered right to the apartment; those who have dogs have discovered that the delivery people either won’t return next time, or insist on a big tip, due to the angry barking when they ring the doorbells or knock on the doors. Doesn’t happen with cats…
I love cats. I don’t like this negativity about cats.
