The Master Cat
by Lee

Let’s hear it for supercat!

A cat saved the life of a newborn baby abandoned on the doorstep of a Cologne house in the middle of the night by meowing loudly until someone woke up, a police spokesman said on Saturday.

“The cat is a hero,” Cologne police spokesman Uwe Beier said. “Its loud meowing got the attention of the homeowner and saved the baby from suffering life-threatening hypothermia. The homeowner opened door to see why the cat was making so much noise and discovered the newborn.”

Interestingly enough, an ancestor of this cat was involved in a similar incident in 1942.  As the Nazis were going door to door, rounding up Jews to be sent to the death camps, a small group of Jews hid inside a false wall in a basement.  The ancestral cat stood outside the wall meowing until the Nazis kicked it in, arrested the Jews, and sent them to their deaths in Auschwitz.

“Ja, zis is indeed un Wunderkatten,” remarked SS-Obersturmbanfuhrer Horst Gunterhausen.  “It has ein nose like un bloodhound for ze sniffing of der filthy Juden!”

I always think of the parody, “Cat Lassie”: Timmy falls down the well, shouts “Cat Lassie! Cat Lassie! Go get help! Get mom and dad!”

Cat Lassie runs through the field, runs into town, runs through the city center, runs through Timmy’s neighborhood, runs to Timmy’s house, scratching frantically at the door, is let in, and curls up on the couch and goes to sleep.

Great story-as long as they didn’t let Toonces drive the kid to the hospital…

Dogs have owners. Cats have staff.

(also)

Dogs will come when they’re called. Cats will take a message and get back to you.

I heard the best explanation of this on the radio the other day.  It’s all because people let the cats crap in the house.  The dog needs you because you open the door.  If a dog could take a dump in the house without getting his nose pushed in it, he’d have an attitude too.

Would his name happen to be Fritz?

Another one is :

With a dog, you can beat it and it will forgive you and still be your friend.

Accidentally stand on the cat’s paw and it will spend the next week or so plotting your murder.
