Little Fighter

We're softies. Now that softiness does not typically extend to people who we find reprehensible and obnoxious. Indeed we would probably argue that there are significantly too many people in the world and that by and large they're significantly too stupid to feed themselves and offer anything worth while to the world.

Unfortunately this is where we come to the chief weakness in human evolution or intelligent designism (whichever you prefer I don't want to discriminate). Smart people understand two things:
1. The world can be a sucky place to live in sometimes. Why you ask? Well have you ever been in a situation where you're smarter than an individual who has authority over you? There's an innate frustration that accompanies this situation. I first became aware of this around 3rd grade when I realized I was smarter than my teacher. Since then, it's all been down hill for me. For most smart people this leads to sorrow.
2. Walmart.
3. With children you can't buy yourselves as many toys for Christmas/Hannukah/Kwanza/Tet/or Canada Day.

These point show us why smart people are breeding themselves out of the population, we just like things more than kids. (Note this is all tongue and cheek we don't really think that people who have a ton of kids are stupid (Husband here. I just think it's pure madness but I come from a family of three so there's that.))

All that said we love cats. They exemplify the qualities we wish more people would show. They're infinitely self-sufficient. You leave them for a week at home and they'll take care of themselves one way or another. They understand the joy of naps. They never talk back to us.

With this in mind we've started foster catting. That's right we've taken in two strays a female and its kitten (there are a lot of deadbeat cat dads out there). So with no further ado we present to you all, Midnight and Little Fighter (the little guy is Little Fighter).

Here's the link to the rest of the photo album.

Now for those of you who don't know where the name little fighter came from here's the video who inspired us.

Where can I get me a set of yellow pants like that!

I'm a firm believer that God has an intelligent design for us, and it involves evolution. So maybe he feels like you have some traits that need to be weeded out. Like being cat people. Weirdos.

Finally! A cat that is smaller than tinkerbelle!

Coops said...

Finally you have a 'proper' black cat - ALL cats should be black.

So does cat fostering mean that once the kitten is able to fend for itself you throw them both back out on the street again? Also I suspect the the combination of increased cats and your hardwood floors means that you will be spending much more time sweeping up cat hair!

You assume we sweep. That's a huge assumption. No what it means is that we keep him until he's old enough to get his balls clipped and then we try to get him adopted. We basically keep them until they get adopted.

Wife of dastew said...

We have hardwood floors!? I thought the cat hair was carpet!
