I Will Not Defame New Orleans.

Stupid Cat Picture

Know that Harley (hording her catnip mouse) hates all other cats. Hissy-fit, swatting, won't sit comfortably in the same room with another cat — including cats she lives with in New Orleans.

Now, she's accidentally reunited with her daughter, whom she hasn't seen in over seven years, and this is what's going on in the bedroom right now:



So do you, like, think, she recognizes Fonzie as one of her own? That seems thoroughly unlikely to me, but it's weird, I'm tellin' ya, for her to be napping while touching another kitty!

I just stood there and blinked at her for five minutes, wondering if she maybe didn't know there was another cat backed up against her. No, she knew. Weirdness!

Oh, and here's a picture from much earlier in August, a day before Ben and I went to Europe, and weeks before Katrina hit.

I should say I feel the same sentiments expressed in this photo towards the shenanigans going on in the house to the right, yet oh so more acutely.

I Will Not Defame New Orleans.
