News at the parental Blacks

This is the big news in Cape Girardeau on a Saturday afternoon. My parents cat stalked a mole, dug it out of a hole and had it for lunch. Mmm, mole breath.

I couldn't quite make it out. Is that cat wearing a priest's collar?

yes rick, it is a priest's collar. my dad would not have any other cat. he had to have a religious cat. it just happens to be a priest cat. he is only nominally catholic - much like a hospital chaplin. the cat's main priority is to kill moles and his collar is used to show prestige.

moles are dirty animals. they are the redneck cousins of the rodent family. we hamsters do not associate with them or invite them to feeding frenzies. in fact, we rarely claim any animal that is not treasured as a household pet. the rats suggested we make this a written amendment in our by-laws, but, on the off chance that some moles learn to read, we found it better just to slight them behind their back. this is one of the few times i am thankful for felines. perhaps this cat is the vengeful arm of the Lord striking judgment on the wicked. i can only pray so...

are you implying that the hamster is a good household pet?

the hamster said...

i am simply suggesting that you should never own, name, cuddle with or give a recreational wheel to an animal that shares the same name with a spot of skin that may very well change colors and become a rather bothersome, not to mention lethal, form of melonoma. call me crazy. i know that a rose by any other name blah, blah, blah - but you wouldn't exactly feel comfortable with your daughter marrying a man whose middle name is "luciferictesticular". that's alls i'm saying. you may assume what you wish about the merits of a hamster.
