Tails of the Kitty: Diesel the Mooch

BtCmnNdCQAA22le


As you probably remember, earlier this year I started providing cat food to the local raccoon population. Then I started having problems with possums and neighborhood cats eating all the food. A month or so back I started seeing a large long-haired brownish-grey male raiding the food bowl. Soon he was a regular visitor.

Molly did not like him.

It had been a while since I had seen a raccoon and I was spending too much on cat food (2 large bowls a night) so I decided to reduce the amount of food I put out to one medium-sized bowl a night. The big male went from raiding the food bowl to standing outside the glass patio door every morning and evening meowing for food. He didn’t look like he was missing too many meals but he acted like he was starving.

Molly would hiss and attack the glass whenever she saw him.

I felt sorry for him and started putting out a bowl whenever he showed up. Soon he was basically a resident on my patio. He was obviously tame because whenever I went outside he would come up and brush up against my legs in a friendly way. I also noticed he was wearing a collar. I wondered if he had been abandoned. This is about when it started getting cold and we had our first rain.

Molly made clear that he was not ever coming inside. Never ever.

A couple weeks ago I saw a car pull up out front right after dark. It stopped right in front of my house and had the lights on. Peeking out from behind the curtains I saw this young woman get out and walk up to the big cat and pick him up. She started walking back to her car with him.

So I stepped out on the porch and said “Is that your cat?”

She told me that it was her friend’s cat and that they were worried about him because he hadn’t come home. She told me they lived over on the next block. She also told me that the cat’s name was Diesel and that he was an outside cat. We talked a little more and then she took Diesel and left.

It wasn’t even two hours later he was back outside my patio door meowing like he was starving. I decided that if he had a home there was no reason for me to keep feeding him. I figured that if I stopped feeding him he would quit hanging around.

When I told Molly she didn’t seem to care.

Diesel is apparently stubborn, even for a cat. He would be waiting outside on the patio before sun-up every day and hung around until late at night. If I tried to let Molly out he would come running up, meowing like crazy. I had to close the patio blinds because he would just stand there and beg.

After about a week he finally started to get the message that his welfare benefits had ended and he quit hanging around so much. Then yesterday when I came home from the store I was talking to the hot young widow next and I saw Diesel sitting in front of her house so I asked her if she had been feeding him.

She said yes and then told me that he was a friendly outside cat who lived over on the next block. She said the owner had an autistic son and whenever Diesel disappeared for a few days the son would start freaking out so they would come find him and take him home.

This morning when I went out to get the paper at 5 am Diesel was sitting on my front porch. So I fed him. I figure if they need to look for Diesel they will know where to find him.

I haven’t told Molly yet.

    My feeling on much of traditionalism: As rigid, no-exceptions, zealously enforced law? It sucks. As a generally good societal standard for the majority? It works.

    • WMCB says:

    • The Klown says:

      I laugh whenever I see a Prog suggesting a new and improved form of segregation, like only black cops and black teachers in black neighborhoods.

      • WMCB says:

        I’m not a fan of forced segregation, at all. But I think trying to **prevent** ppl from sorting according to their comfort zone creates more problems and tension than it solves.

        • The Klown says:

          This is sort of “reverse segregation” where the minority makes the rules.

          • WMCB says:

            That I can’t get behind. I like leaving ppl alone, with no quotas of any kind, and letting the chips fall where they may.

            What you end up with may look a lot like churches. Some mostly black, some mostly white, some mostly asian, or brown, or some mixed to varying degrees. And ALL of those are fine. Leave people the hell alone – we will work out how to navigate our various tribal loyalties if govt doesn’t fuck with us over it.

            Never forget that absolute segregation was not something that southerners just naturally did – it had to be made law and enforced from without.

        • piper says:

          Deseg in the schools. Although we bused them all over, the kids still ate lunch and played at recess with others from their group.

          • elliesmom says:

            One of our vice principals at the large diverse high school where I taught was black. She would go on and on about how segregated the cafeteria was . Drawing on my experience of how to get the guys to eat with us women in our college cafeteria, I asked some white kids I knew pretty well to spread out over the cafe so there was a white kid at every table. I asked them to invite the black kids to join them. While some did, a lot of black kids went over in a corner and sat on the floor together to eat lunch. At the next faculty meeting when she started in on the segregation in the cafe, I asked her just who wouldn’t sit with who?

          • WMCB says:

            Yes. Some blending and exceptions around the edges, of course, but people generally like being with their own, even as they freely interact with the other. Forced segregation is bad, but working *with*, not against, natural human tendencies seems to me a more practical approach than forcing it either way.

            Humans evolved to be tribal. You are not going to stamp that out in a few decades unless you use overwhelming force. Not worth it. Let them be, and focus on various groups/tribes getting along and not hating each other. So long as we can get along, it’s not a problem. Tribes blend and change over time, at their own comfortable rate. Not one people of Europe is “pure”, because people DO blend and borrow one anothers customs and genes, they just do it rather slowly. Well, slow to our modern sensibility – it’s actually pretty fast on an evolutionary scale.

            Tribalism can cause conflict, and it has throughout history. Not denying that. But trying to brutally eradicate it entirely appears, to me, to have caused even MORE conflict and strife and misery over the last century. The world isn’t perfect. Go with what’s least damaging. Nature isn’t stupid.

          • The Klown says:

            Overwhelming force doesn’t work either. Look at Iraq and the former Yugoslavia.

          • WMCB says:

            It’s an old hubris, Klown. “We can rewrite human nature.” No, no you can’t. The best you can do is minimize the worst aspects of it, and try to encourage being kind to one another.

          • 1539days says:

            If one member of a group is alone, others actually have a tendency to accept them. I’ve been in a lot of white groups were “the black guy” is generally accepted in the group. It’s when there are more people of a group, everyone starts to assume that like wants to be with like. It’s a weird thing.

          • The Klown says:

            Group dynamics are funny. Take a bunch of boys and add one girl. The dynamic changes. Add a couple more girls. It changes again. Make the group 50/50 and they are completely tribal. Start reducing the number of boys and suddenly the whole power dynamic changes and the girls become dominant.

            Of course there are other variables as well.

        Is it maybe Progzheimer’s? A new form of long term history disremembrance?

  2. WMCB says:

    • The Klown says:

      I know a guy who taught at an all-girls high school back east. He said with no boys around the girls really let themselves go – no make-up, baggy clothes, unkempt hair, etc.

      • WMCB says:

        Girls do that on our own. It’s not bad. Nor is dressing up, makeup etc for male attention bad. Species survival is a good thing, in my book. Plumage is part of it.

      • Constance says:

        They do let go of fashion dictates, that is why I sent my intellectual daughter to a girls school. Many girls is co-ed schools won’t leave in the morning with out an hour of hair and make up and agonizing about outfits which in my opinion is wasted time. At the girls school they require them to dress in business appropriate clothes so by the time they graduate they are comfortable in them. During testing periods they would have pajama week and go to school in sweats and flannel pajamas without makeup with hair in pony tails. It didn’t hurt their dating potential as they had guys they skied with, guys they went to dances with and guys they hung out with. But they didn’t waste educational time on boys.

        • The Klown says:

          A whole lot of my attention shifted to girls somewhere around junior high. I always liked girls, but I never spent a lot of time thinking about them until I hit puberty. All the way thru high school they were a major distraction.

    • elliesmom says:

      When I was “diversity trained” in teacher school, I was told the best way to set up lab groups in science class was two boys and two girls in each group or in mixed sex pairs. I laughed in the profs face. When boys and girls are paired in lab, the boys learn how to use all of the equipment and the girls learn to write really good lab reports. For the first half of the school year, I always assigned same sex groups. When the girls had learned to use the equipment and discovered they enjoyed it, and the boys discovered documentation is an essential part of lab work, then I would mix them up.

      • WMCB says:

        What’s most amazing to me is the complete inability of so many progs to distinguish between the general and the specific.

        Saying that “women as a group have X general tendency, and men as a group have Y general tendency” is not the same as saying “Every man/woman you meet will perfectly display that tendency in a rigid way, and should be categorically treated as such.”

        Progs quite literally DO NOT GROK the difference between statistics about groups being different from facts about individuals. They can’t seem to wrap their brains around it at all.

  3. The Klown says:

    In this room alone there are four separate kitty beds. There are four kitties sleeping in here right now, but not one of the kitty beds is occupied. On the occasions when they are occupied, the homemade kitty beds get the most action. One of the store-bought beds gets some action and the other one stasys empty. Molly won’t sleep in any of them.

  4. DeniseVB says:

    I may have lost track of teh kittehs….I remember you lost (r.i.p.) one, then adopted Catniss, then followed by 4 lost boys. Is Molly aka Catniss ?

    • The Klown says:

      I lost three since I started blogging, the last two less than a month apart. Then I got Catness/Molly, and a year later Los Tres Hermanos.

      • piper says:

        Do we know the name of the father? Sorry can’t resist – a one night stand.

      • DeniseVB says:

        {hug} I remember your last two losses then your rescue Catness/Molly. Should have remembered the Tres Hermanos since I wanted you to name them after the Tres Amigos, Lucky, Dusty and Neddy 😉

    • The Klown says:

      Now it’s a totally different frat and the guys who did it may not have been members there.

      • elliesmom says:

        It’s time for her to fold up her tent and go home. At this point what difference does it make? A half-assed defense attorney could eat her alive, and the frat, whichever one she finally decides it was, will be able to find a good attorney in the ranks of their alumni.

        • The Klown says:

          I took a police academy class 30 years ago. One of the things I still remember was the instructor who said “Never lie. If you get caught in a lie you’re finished as a cop because your credibility is gone.”

          That’s why I tell people not to talk to cops. If you lie to them not only is that a crime but later you can’t change your story. There is a time for defendants to tell their story, and that time is when the jury has been sworn in and the prosecution has rested. More often than not, the defendant should never talk.

          Evidence relating to the credibility of a witness is admissible to impeach their testimony. If they are caught in a lie in front of a jury they’re toast.

          If they claim they were mistaken about the details you ask them what else they are mistaken about.

          • 49erDweet says:

            It’s really great advice, but, human nature being what it is, is usually ignored because so many arrestees believe without justification they are very, very smart.
            Used to have a 45 minute ride to jail. Would cuff ’em and put them in the back seat cage and head for jail, without saying anything all the way in. By the time they could see the city lights approaching the whole story would have come out. Course, I only arrested guilty people.

    • 49erDweet says:

      I have no problem believing “something happened” to whoever it was. But demanding justice requires a smidgen more. Right now her believability stands at minus 20. It might or might not be reparable, but I’m skeptical.

      • Propertius says:

        Yes, I suspect something awful happened to her, too. Thanks to Rolling Stone we’ll probably never know what it was or who was responsible. This is why we have cops, courts, lawyers, and rules of evidence. Trial-by-Twitter (which is what this degenerated into) does nobody any good.

  5. The Klown says:

    Still photographs can be deceptive, but considering the pro-Obama slant of the media doesn’t it seem there are an awful lot of pictures of the Obamas where their expressions and body language indicate boredom, annoyance and/or contempt?

    • cynic says:

      In a move that could help increase home ownership rates among minorities and low-income consumers, the Fannie Mae Corporation is easing the credit requirements on loans that it will purchase from banks and other lenders.
      (…)
      Fannie Mae, the nation’s biggest underwriter of home mortgages, has been under increasing pressure from the Clinton Administration to expand mortgage loans among low and moderate income people and felt pressure from stock holders to maintain its phenomenal growth in profits.
      (…)
      In moving, even tentatively, into this new area of lending, Fannie Mae is taking on significantly more risk, which may not pose any difficulties during flush economic times. But the government-subsidized corporation may run into trouble in an economic downturn, prompting a government rescue similar to that of the savings and loan industry in the 1980’s.

    “This just drips lib elite hate for The South…”
    *****
    Just came back from “sighting in” an X-Mass present for the wife. At the local indoor range in the South, the demographics of the people in the shooting lanes were two privileged males, two women, two East Asians and two African Americans. Doesn’t quite fit the stereotypical rants of a Chris Mathews who lives in a 98% white town.

    • WMCB says:

      The south is actually less rigidly segregated than most of the country, so far as neighborhoods, restaurants, sports, etc goes. And rural folks are MUCH less segregated than those in big urban areas.

      But they’ll keep fucking that “evil southern redneck country racist” chicken, endlessly.

      • SHV says:

        Just the idea of Racial/Gender “diversity” and firearms is enough for a Prog’s head to explode.

        When people work together to solve a problem, racism tends to evaporate.
        I never finished this book because it was the same story, every time: black guy and white guy uncomfortable in each other’s presence, but their job/situation required it, they worked together, then became good friends.

        • The Klown says:

          When I was in the army (78-81) our unit was about 40% white, 40% black and 20% Hispanic (mostly PR) among e-4’s and below. There were a lot of black and Hispanic NCO’s too. Officers were mostly white. There was some racism, but the racists knew to keep their mouths shut. Lots of the white guys were from the south, and lots of the black guys were from inner cities.

          We got along. Sometimes we made friends, sometimes not. But you don’t have to like someone to work with them. People admired the guys who had their shit together and had contempt for the idiots, regardless of what color they were. But even if the guy was an idiot he was still part of the team.

          Funny thing was that most the white racists I met were from places like Boston and Detroit.

      • WMCB says:

        John, was talking w/someone the other day about the military – common mission tends to outweigh racial tribalism, so less friction.

        That said, he said the various races (or gays or whatever emotional tribal affiliation) did tend to spend at least part of their free social time being insular with “their own.” Other times, everyone would participate in some mixed social activity. When it’s working naturally there is an easy flow to it: reaffirming tribe, interacting with others. Both can happen. It’s not either/or.

      • WMCB says:

        Of course not. The working class, black and white, figures out how to get along. The white prog elites and their client underclass wouldn’t know racial harmony if it bit them in the ass – they all live in segregated enclaves of either privilege or crime. They have no idea what it even looks like.

        The rest of us go to little league games together and frequent each others’ booths at the craft fair and flea market and gun show. We’re all proud and fond of our own gender/race/whatever, but don’t obsess over it 24/7. We have lives. We live them.

Cleared up as soon as it got cold but for decades I suffered the docs always called I it bronchitis.wrong.

    So I had to go to this modeling gig at a hotel yesterday beautiful black woman behind the bar who had never read Maya Angelou. I ordered her the book. The Hotel manager sent me an email today with three free nights at any Double Tree Hotel. I was talking to some of the parents and praising the acting school brat attends.16 parents one day later bought classes. I got a call from the school thanking me and refunded what ails had already paid. I was miserable. Six hours sitting for a brat to be on stage for less than a minute. Kid show and they gave me the number 69. Gross. Over the intercom they kept saying 69 head to the stage. So wrong. Head and 69 in the same sentence is just not right. Maybe I am just a pig because no one else seemed to get it. 69 head to the stage over and over.

    Hey, guys, did you know that the creation of black majority voting districts was an evil racist plot BY THE REPUBLICANS? Yes, evidently the evil R’s are the ones who spent decades gerrymandering blacks all into a single district. Not the Dems who had Black-majority districts a PART OF THEIR FUCKING PLATFORM.

    They lie like they breathe. Just like with civil rights, in a few years the history books will teach that the thing that the Democrats did was entirely done by Republicans.

    • WMCB says:

They are blinded by a twisted sense of self importance. Tell a liberal that Johnson dropped the n word many times and they deny. Play him saying it and they call you a liar. Shite does not matter. I adore my parents. So democrat for years. Sharon is Tea Party and watches Greta and Kelly every day. My deacon dad reads Ayn Rand. He talks to his gay son about objectivism.

    • The Klown says:

      That’s why scum like Elijah Cummings keep getting reelected over and over. His state senate seat was a gerrymander. The first time Obama ran for Congress against Bobby Rush he was running in a black-majority district. He lost because he wasn’t authentic enough. Jesse Jackson Jr. had one.

Got her for my kid last year for a birthday present. Many dogs and Shay’s picked the one all by herself in a corner. She was bad even in the pound. I do love her. She drives me insane.

          There is some serious whacked out stuff going on with kids. Everyone assumes the world owes them something because they are a single parent. I have an apartment in my parents basement. Once upon a time it was garage. My parents would never charge me so I handle kid expenses. Well aware that kid has opportunities that most do not get. Most people don’t have 700 dollars a month to spend on a brats activities. Monday’s and Thursdays one kid comes home from school with the pup and Tuesday’s and Friday another one comes home because they go to tae Kwon Do. I feed them all. I had a friend buy me a very expensive Gibson guitar for the kid. I would not dump that kind of money on something she will out grow in a year. It was a gift the one mother went ape shot about it being unfair that Shay gets to do so much.Sod off she made decisions about life. So did I. I buy clothes at Target(not really I wear cardhart and dickies that I buy online) I indulge the child with clothes. My choice I have had a job since I was 12. I can spend my money any way I want. I have two pair of shoes brat has 19. I worked with the athletic association and neighborhood businesses to make softball free. Uniform is 12 dollars and all the parents who can donate mitts, shoes bats at the end of summer. Still people whine. Cost is 95 dollars for the whole summer and if you sell 50 two dollar lottery tickets it is free. Same people cry I take baby every Monday to the library not true my father does. They always have programs for kids. Free. I am appreciative. I volunteer to sell books when they have an event. I am sown from a family of big readers we have books everywhere. The mud room has an etymology dictionary. First thing you encounter is a thousand page book. We all read and then we give each other the books. No dead bookshelf I do have an entire wall that is bookshelf. I use it as an armoir. I have maybe 5 books I will read again. Night by Elie Weisel. The Brothers Karamozov, Beloved and A Confederacy of Dunces. Oh and The Bone People by Kerri Hume and Jane Eyre. Other stuff just dies on a shelf. To quote the Red Hot Chile Peppers give it away now. I forced myself to read War and Peace. Hell. It is a love story hidden in a war novel. Confession I will always keep the Thorn Birds. I was twelve and the Doubleday book club sent it to my mother because she did not send an envelope back saying she did not want it. I stayed up all night reading about Maggie Cleary and Father Ralph. I fell in love with the written word. Who knew 30 years later I would stumble upon a girl with a broken collar bone and I would read Harry Potter. Dear monster sat up all night as I read aloud The Chamber of Secrets. Experience was beyond perfect. I struggle with what I may gift her. Love of books is all I can hope for.
          Anyhow I do not keep books it makes me sad to see them rotting on a shelf. I give them to the library and then I get suckered into selling my own books on the street.

      I know it won’t hurt them, but they do know they’re lying on about five or six decades worth of rolling stock latrine flushing ground, don’t they?

      • The Klown says:

        There are all kinds of chemicals too – herbicides, preservatives, termiticides, not to mention train fuel and lubricants that leak from the trains.

    • HELENK3 says:

      do they know that it takes at least 1/2 mile for a train to stop? and they could wind up looking like kibbles and bits and make a really ugly corpse? someone must have notified the dispatcher that there were trespassers on the tracks. they were damn lucky. also there is a lot more than toilet waste on those tracks. trains with tanker cars , diesel fuel and a lot of nasty things leak as trains pass over them. If they had been hit, an engineer would have to live with the memory of the death of fools. For people going to college they sure are stupid

      As usual the people ginning up this mess have no idea what the aftereffects will be. Burned out, indifferent, hostile law enforcement is going to make things worse which may be the intent after all. But after reading Tomasky’s ignorant screed yesterday about people he for one delights in demonizing who won’t vote the way he wants, I think it is a genetic mutation of progressives inability to understand cause and effect. If you beat the dog long enough he will bite your stupid ass.

    Is the media turning on the ridiculous Vile Progs? Probably not but it is fun to read them ripping them to shreds. http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/12/08/the-rise-and-fall-of-chris-hughes-and-sean-eldridge-america-s-worst-gay-couple.html
    The farcical Gruber the Goober is to be grilled by the House subcommittee on investigations today and I don’t even care. He has been hiding and now dragged out from under his rock to be squashed and it isn’t even good sport since he is so discredited as a fake, fraud, money-gruber, and disgusting bully and general asshole.
