Cat Transmissions

From a cryptic PowerPoint slide recently created by my wife’s cat Pearl:

Vgfffffffffffffffffffffffff[p;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

;;;;=================p;.

She also chimed in (arguably improved) on some dialogue I was attempting to write:

“I’m tellin’ you, man,” Ralph said,”They were in there humpin’ like a couplea apes!”

“Get thy66\]90509e fszxZA ,,,,,,ty;p= nbbsd\

Pearl has a knack for activating the Windows Narrator function and then locking my keyboard, so that Steven Hawking’s voice announces every keystroke while I try to undo the damage.  Most of the time I believe that she’s just drawn to the heat given off by my laptop, but on bad nights I can’t supress the suspicion that she may be trying to communicate the kind of dark secrets that only felines can handle — a slippery slope of letters and symbols that threaten to pull the human mind toward madness and despair.

Still, I wish I knew how to make those upside down question marks.

(You can click here for a pointless video of Pearl savagely-defending her position on my laptop.)

TomT will be posting under his real name here (at least part of it), in spite of the fact that this site already seems to be crammed-full of Toms. He is a suburban husband and dad doing Union work within public education in the Chicago area. Once in a great while he also posts diaries under the name “Skitters” on Daily Kos, and—during football season—he does his best to chronicle the dark history of a fairly-vicious fantasy league.
