I had a cat like this one once, luckily I was able to resist her orders.

Dear Anamchristi,

Perhaps that cat was a witch?

Deadly cat, deadly cat
What are they feeding you?
Deadly cat, deadly cat
It's not your fault

They won't take you to the priest
You're obviously not their favourite beast
You may not be a sweet little kitten
And all your friends have been severely bitten

Dear Dolly,

I have the "Pet Network" on my TV package and I saw one program where a group of liberal Jews were holding "Bark-mitzvahs!"

They actually put a yarmulka on the dog's head and draped a prayer shawl over him. They then all danced around singing "Howa Nagila."

Hi Alex - -

I actually have a friend who makes "doggie lingerie" (don't ask!) and has also made those yarmulkas and prayer shawls for dogs!

Dear Dolly,

Don't tell me - she does it for the "shear" joy of it!

A good weekend!

David Berkowitz The Son of Sam made similar claims about a dog.

The jury did not seem to be impressed by the defense story.

Sadly, there was more to the story. The man was perhaps haunted by his past as a cat killer.

Quote
A man who talked about his cat having special powers was convicted Wednesday of first-degree murder in the Jan. 24, 2004, shooting death of a friend.

Clayton Butsch, 40, of Lake Stevens stands to spend between 38 and 50 years in prison after a Snohomish County Superior Court jury found him guilty. ...

... This is the second time Butsch has been convicted of a crime involving a cat. In 1995, he was sentenced to prison for intimidating a witness and animal cruelty. He roasted a woman's kitten in an oven as it shrieked and tried to claw its way out, court documents say.

Dear John:

So, can we say safely now that the man, not the cat, has a pre-existing condition? :p

Amado

(Still wondering if the cat was black?)
