I'm trying... Laws, yes.

So, no training today for it is POURING. I am not upset about that see: worst drought in Texas history. I am doing everything in my power to not go to the House of the Right Angle Worship behind my house and beat their door down, because my cat Scrappy has gone missing. Why am I implicating them? Because they assumed we reported them for water wasting a few weeks ago (see: worst drought in Texas history) because they are too LAZY to push a broom on their driveway and use their HOSE to clean up after mowing. Which, yeah. They're right. We did report them. After we asked them THREE TIMES to be water wise. Again, see: worst drought in Texas history.

So the wife came knocking on our door the other day and said she knew it was us, and that we better start keeping our cats inside *implied threat*, because she's found poop in her "flower beds." I use quotes because they HAVE no flower beds. They have gravel and foundation shrubs that are meticulously trimmed twice a week because OMG they have to be SQUARES. Now. If my cats are pooping in her beds? I am very sorry. I have the litter box to show otherwise, but whatever. And it's not like my animals are the only ones in the neighborhood AHEM. (coyotes, bobcats, strays, Pomeranians...) Also, my cats are OUTDOOR cats. (They sleep indoors.) My cats also catch a minimum of ONE RAT/MOUSE a night. Does she want them in her house? I think not.

So it looks like I'm going to the shelter to find my 14 year old Maine Coon with cataracts and bad hips because he apparently is a huge threat to my FUCKING NEIGHBORS' SHRUBBERY. The other cats are circling the property and sniffing, looking for him. :( WHY ARE PEOPLE AWFUL???

and he's so pretty and sweet and just likes to be petted and we shaved him and he's like VELOUR and I hate them and their god damed boxwoods.

OH OH! The best? And by best I mean MIND BOGGLING? This wife is the chairman of the neighborhood WELCOMING COMMITTEE. You can't make this shit up. Did she EVER introduce herself to us? No. We introduced ourselves last Christmas, affter having been here for a year and a half. Okay, the shelter is open now. Off to see if they have my baby. >:(

[ETA] So, the Animal Control facility doesn't have them, and they were very sweet and patted my arm while I cried (jesus, I do NOT cry, people.) and I almost left with four big fat huggable kitties that were sitting in windows wanting HOMES because I had to focus. And he is not at the Adoption center down the road where they have NANNY GOATS and a Paint and her baby, omg, and they were very supportive and sweet and took my name and number and let me write notes about how Scrappy has a fang that hangs outside his mouth and causes him to drool when you pet him and how he has tendrils of black fur that jut out from his toes and he's got a shaved back and floofy tail and a family that loves him. And our vet has not seen him (people drop off animals there) and will call me immediately if he turns up. And my sweet elderly neighbors on the other side have not seen him, and hugged me and "Oh, darlin'!"'d me, and agreed that they never did like those uppity folks behind us. (They're from Mississippi, and thereby adorable when they speak.)

Mr. S might fly home because this is his kitty from COLLEGE and he's all sad and depressed, because he thinks he may have let him out when he left for the airport yesterday morning at the crack of dawn, and WAAAAAAAAAH.

THE NEIGHBORS ARE STILL NOT ANSWERING THEIR DOOR, AND I KNOW THEY ARE HOME. Fuckers. I am sorry to be all emo and whiney, I'm just SO SAD. Poor old feller. Goddammit, he can't SEE WELL. *Cries*

fuck. I'm sorry y'all. :(

I just had a good cry and pulled myself together. OKAY. Going to see if they've got him, THEN THE NEIGHBORS WILL WITNESS MY WRATH.

Dude. I'm pissed off on your behalf. I hope he poops all over their yard once you get him back safely.

I -- I just -- oh honey.

I hope everything's okay with Scrappy.

Also I hate hypocrites like you mention. Particularly the religious ones (religion-genric since it's a type, not a specific faith) because they are liars and just -- *seethes*

*cuddles you*

I hope you find him at the shelter - if not? May I wish you well in the visitation of WRATH upon the neighbours?

*sends positive thoughts*

Oh, you poor thing. I hope he turns up right away. Your neighbor is a piece of shit, and I hope karma smites her hard.

Oh honey, I hope Scrappy is okay and is just playing hide-and-seek. Or, failing that, she decided to go check out the shelter to make some new friends.

I really hope she's okay.

*hugs you*

*sends good vibes for Scrappy*

WHAT. I WILL MAIL BOMB THEM. WHAT.

UNCOOL.

(also surely said cat could still, like, take her to pieces if she tried anything, right?)

Also I've been a crappy lj-friend with commenting and I think you're awesome for the training and the walkathon.

SCRAPPY.

Dude, Scrappy has survivor written ALL OVER his lovely black one-fanged lion face. He will come home, am sure of it! Possibly he's got shut in somewhere? Our cat disappeared for 36 hours because of that, then came home with mud on her paws and screeched about having been Kidnapped. And we love Scrappy, he used to sit on my feet at night and Loom over us. Those people sound really stupid. *hugs*

*hates the cat-hating people with their stupid square shrubs who overwater*

Yeah, I really need to harass the old people's retirement community up the street about overwatering. We live in wet Western Washington and every morning when I go on my run, they are watering mostly the sidewalk.

You have got to be fucking kidding me. The mood I'm in, I'd like to come and accidentally uproot their perfect freaking boxy boxwoods with a backhoe. Jeebus.

I hope Scrappy is ok and just lounging it up at the shelter waiting for you.

Your neighbors are asshats.

Neighbors. Huh.

The whole "love thy neighbor" thing is a spiritual challenge because, dammit, people do act as if they own everything they can see, and think that being asked not to leave the salmon BBQ scraps out to rot so everyone in a half-mile can smell it, or to keep their little honyock boys from harrassing the cattle (my cousin/neighbor, who should damned well know better!) is "being told what they can do on their own property.

Humans are not naturally friendly and cooperative with those who live next door, I expect.

Julia, thinking again of getting the Daschund Daycare's number blocked on my phone, as she called me at midnight because her miniature long-haired daschund bitch was missing: see coyotes, raccoons

Oh, hon. ::hugs:: I hope you find him and all will be well.

As a Master Gardner, I'm sure you know how difficult it is to maintain boxwood hedge health? I mean, one inadvertent application of the wrong chemical, and it's bye-bye boxwoods. I'm just sayin'.

Your neighbour is probably the moron I kerfuffled with the other day over this same issue.

Good luck on finding your kitty!

I well and truly despise people of this nature. I suspect they are a subspecies of humanity, because they exist across all race, culture, economic and gender lines.

I like to call them "people of increased rectal diameters" in polite company.

I hope they get goiters in their privates.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
