Cat tales

Sometimes I find myself talking to my cats. Guess I'd better watch what I say:

Secret recordings of a pensioner talking to his cats, which police claim include a confession he hit his partner, have been played to a jury.

David Henton, 72, of Neath, denies murdering his long-term partner, Joyce Sutton, 65, from Skewen, in her bed.

Swansea Crown Court heard extracts of undercover police recordings in which, the prosecution claim, Mr Henton said to his cats: "I hit my Joyce."

But the defence insisted Mr Henton actually said: "I miss my Joyce."

They wouldn't need to secretly record me, though. I think my cats would turn me in.

I hear 'ya.
Ever since the advent of PUSH-BUTTON phones, cats have been the root cause of those piles of useless toys in the corner of a room.

And with the auto-menus at nearly every company, it just gets easier for them and costlier for us.
Press-1 for sales
Please wait while we process your request
Press-2 for order number & tracking

(("My cat must have bought that solar-powered, hand-shaped back scratcher for $399.99...I swear I didn't enter MY credit card number...I don't even KNOW you people"))

That's why I now record THEM.

Don't watch what you say...just watch your monthly bills...VERY carefully.

I know our cat has parties with other cats in the neighborhood while we're out - pillows rearranged on the couch, TV on a different channel, more pop cans and beer bottles in the recycling bin - we know what he's doing all right, I'm just not sure I could stand to watch the tapes if we recorded him, ...
