Default Cats! My GOD!!

Hi guys :-)

It's True-story time.

The Crew:

1) Chubby-Chun Li - played by my Little Sister.

2) Gen. Bison aka Vader - played by my Aunt.

3) Madam Cat and her Minions - played by Madam Cat and her Minions.

4) Ol-Lumpy - played by Yours Truly

Background story:

Chun Li just LOVES to bring home stray animals. Mostly cats.

Now I don't have a problem with that. No sir.

Heck even I've fallen for the 'awww the big-round-eyes' routine of the cats before.

But, I try and explain to her that "If you feed it once, It'll keep comng back."

But does anyone listen to me?

No. Let's not listen to 'Ol-Lumpy'.

Right enough, this dame-of-a-cat becomes a part of our lives.

I know what you're thinking baby.

You're thinking "Ah yes, now comes the happily-ever-after- part".

Aha! Gotcha!

No-no now comes the twist in the plot.

You see, we happen to live in a joint family system.

And the joint comes with a Darth-Vader-Aunt who looks at the cat and goes "DO-NOT-WANT".

More Drama follows in Chun Li v/s Bison - Street Fighter IV no less.

All this while yours truly is just generally-chilling out with his Grado and minding his own business. So far so good. NO, make that Very good.

Also,

All this while Madam Cat is roaming at night doing GOD knows what hubba-hubba-hubba!

Hrm... so one fine sunny sunday Madam cat decides to make things more interesting in Street Fighter IV.

By summoning forth her Minions from you-know-where into this world.

All 4 of them. 2 He-Kittens and 2 She-Kittens.

That's right. Uh-Oh its *Vader* NOOOOOOOO *Vader* time!

Present Situation:

So every sunnny sunday, Vader Orders poor Ol-lumpy to "Go and leave the cats at the fish market".

And I have to do the oh-I'm-so-busy dance on the weekdays and where's -he-disappeared dance on the weekends.

This has been going on for all of Three Glorious months, but now Vader's patience is running thin.

So, now this is going to be the last week before it's "Oh dandy! let's go and say Hello to the fisher-ladies."

Unless Lady Luck permits me to do one last dance, then that would make it about 10 days from now.

Now we get to the *Ehrm* Please-don't-make-me-Elucidate-this-Conundrum part...

K,

Now I'm getting a bit serious. No seriously... like serious-serious.

So, PLEASE do feel free to drop by at my home in Mumbai for a cup of cutting chai ;-)

Peace... My Brothers.

Wow! What a piece of writing TaciturN! Love reading it and sorry, I can't adopt any of them; I'm too far away and currently have no place of my own!

Hats off to you for getting them all together for a snap, even if it was for a few seconds. Lovely snaps!

I have between 15 and 18 cats at home (depending on the time of the day).

I sincerely hope you will be able to find a home for them.

Yeah, but once they grow up a bit, it's just eat-sleep-rinse-repeat. :-)

Heh, actually It's a reference to a meme about the Infamous 2007 DC Comics miniseries that's been Parodied like a Thousand-and-Million times.


Well, -> this <- is not exactly a musical either ;-)

Wish you were in Bangalore, would've taken one (not for me but for my cousin). At home we had some 4 cats and a dog, dunno how many are there now.
