This reminds me of the time I saw a show on 'Animal Planet' about animal heroes. A burglar broke into a home while the couple who lived there were sleeping. Their cat, sensing danger, launched herself at the crook from her perch and dug into his face with her claws. Police were later able to arrest the guy when the criminal went to the hospital for treatment. He had deep facial lacerations and told the police that the couple whose house he had broken into were keeping an exotic wild animal and he had been attacked by it. The cops went immedately to investigate. The topper to the whole tale? It wasn't a bobcat who had done all that damage, it was their blind kitty cat. Yes, a BLIND kitty saved the day. The couple had built an elaborate series of shelves with railings all over the house so the cat could go from one room to the next in safety and apparently she was on her perch by the front door and using her hearing and other senses, she targeted the intruder perfectly.
I like to think that the kitty in this picture is seconds away from doing the same to the guy that is threatening it. Not nice to say you will eat kitty.
Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
