It's Time Once Again For Noodle's Sticky Paws And Hairballs vs. Fuzzy Hugs And Kitty Kisses...
Sometimes life is a balancing act... you have to weigh the hype with the truth...
And speaking of hype and truth, did you see Ted Cruz's response to the State of the Union Address? You really need to see this!; http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/01/20/ted-cruz-video_n_6512668.html Do I really need to say it? Give that man a sticky paw!
Next, a great big sticky paw to the Department of Children's Health and Welfare in Maryland;
Last week we heard about parents in Maryland who are being investigated by the Department of Children's Health and Welfare. Why? Because their kids were walking home from the park by themselves...ummmm excuse me but do you really think the strangers that called the police to report this heinous act would be very concerned if those same kids had their school lunches taken away due to budget cuts? Or if they were black and were shot at because one of them was carrying a water pistol? You have certain cable "news" commentators and radio personalities piling on to say "yes", of course the parents should have their children ripped from there home and traumatized all because they were doing something we have all done as kids and that my friends is mostly when ( and you can check the statistics ) crime was much higher than it is now.
We have become so enmeshed in our concerns with other people's lives and we have determined that we are the ones who know best. But only peripherally! Please don't ask us to get involved in any meaningful way. But be aware, if you have something to say about me or my family I will scream that you are trampling my FREEDOM as loud as I can from the rooftops so....
Could we maybe just ratchet down the drama we seem to thrive on so much, just a little bit? And maybe take a look at our own kids and selves before we go throwing stones at others.
A gigantic sticky paw to FOX NEWS...okay I admit we aren't fans but still. Don't make sh*t up!
and no, apologizing after the fact, doesn't cut it.
And on that note a super big hairy hairball to Bobby Jindal who it appears did NOT get the memo?
And now for something cat related...
Noodle was thinking the other day about some of the stuff cats hate, here is a partial list;
1. when people put things around their necks (bells, bows etc.)
2. loud noises
3. sudden movements by anything bigger than the cat
4. being petted in the wrong direction
5. competition ( other small animals, babies, pretty much anything really )
6. being told how fat they have gotten...
What is your pet's peeve?
And for all of you who skip the sticky paws looking for the good stuff (you know who you are...)
a super sloppy kitty kiss to the one and only Jimmy Fallon; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OTg-CsVJ6UE
Have a great weekend!
