The Pimply Minions Rebellion of 2010…

Christmas Edition:

I’ve lost a cat before, and putting up notices around the neighbourhood is the best way to notify the area that the cat is likely lost in of the whereabouts of the cat’s owner.article-1343679-0ca24f5c000005dc-159_468x314

A couple of years ago we found a dog, put up notices, and returned the dog to a dad and his crying child within two hours of finding him (he was a sweet dog, too: we kind of hoped we didn’t find an owner).  The mother in that family is now our mail person: we get excellent service from Canada Post. It all comes from living in a neighbourhood:

Desperate to find his missing cat Wookie, Mike Harding put up posters throughout the neighbourhood offering a reward for its safe return.

And it was not long before he received a phone call.

Not from someone who had found the pet, however, but from the council saying he was breaking the law.

Take the posters down by Christmas Eve, the Dec 23rd letter proclaimed from on high, or face a
£1,000 fine.  “You would think the council would have some compassion,” Harding said. No actually Mike, you wouldn’t: they never do. That’s the mistake people constantly make.

Have you ever noticed “bureaucrats” sounds a lot like  “bastards”?

Meet Churchill, 10.


So named because of her love of  brandy and fine cigars, not to mention her complete lack of appeasement with evil empires and dogs (” a modest species who have much to be modest about.”)

I offer this introduction in case I should happen to mention our fine cat in passing, at which time please do not assume I mean Winston Churchill and go bothering 10 Downing Street to see if he is still alive.

Lost Cat

May 20th, 2007

We have lost one of our cats, the kitten in fact, who’s been featured here before. Both as picture of the day, (and again, and again) as story addition,

and as an international celebrity.

I have put up a small web page dedicated to finding him. If you are in the Hespeler area, please take a peek, just in case you have seen him.
