And Now… A Little Monday Humor, Courtesy of an Honored Guest.

MY DAUGHTER, SARAH:  Hey, Dad, I think we should get a cat!

THE HOOK:  (Ever the parental killjoy.) You’re allergic, sweetie.

SARAH:  We should get a hairless cat!

You can’t keep a good kid down.

THE HOOK:  They’re scary beyond belief, hon.

And so Sarah did some thinking. And planning. Until finally, a breakthrough.

SARAH:  I’ve got it! We’ll roll a hairless cat in egg yolk and bread it.

THE HOOK:  Kentucky fried kitty cat?

SARAH:  Or we could use feathers or fur donated by the dog. Chelsea won’t mind, I’m sure. It’s a work in progress. Hey, you should put this on the blog!


Chelsea here folks. Not only am I in favor of Kentucky Fried Cats, I think we should expand the concept to include bacon-wrapped squirrels. The possibilities are endless…

Have a happy Monday, humans.



About The Hook

Husband. Father. Bellman. Author of The Bellman Chronicles. Reader of comic books and observer and chronicler of the human condition. And to my wife's eternal dismay, a mere mortal and non-vampire. I'm often told I look like your uncle, cousin, etc. If I wore a hat, I'd hang it on a hat rack in my home in Niagara Falls, Canada. You can call me The Hook, everyone else does.

    Ohhhh! Is it odd to say that I’m hungry now?

  2. My family wanted a cat. I said “No” and put my foot down firmly. Her name is “Taggle”.

  3. Carrie Rubin says:

    My husband is really allergic to cats, so we can’t have one (or dogs because he’s allergic to them, too, a fact my sons never tire of complaining about to him). Hmm, I never thought of breading the cat. Guess it’s worth a shot. 😉

  4. JackieP says:

    That was funny. Kids, they have the answer for everything.

  5. I just read that to my dog and she is now drooling uncontrollably!!

  6. Hey, Sarah – it’s the dander, not the fur. Special shampoo! No cat on the bed or in your room! Wrap the cat in a wetsuit… Cupcake icing that hardens into a sugar shell? Chelsea might like that! .Ok I’ll keep thinking.
    Chelsea might like someone else to push around…

    I have a Cornish Rex cat. They only have the undercoat rather than the top hair. My sons both have asthma and this cat doesn’t trigger attacks. They are apparently lower allergy than hairless cats and are also less work. Those hairless cats need to be moisturised daily, true story. Google Cornish Rex. They’re cute and very lovely. My cat is called Susan.

  8. mollytopia says:

    Oh your daughter is dreamy. Love love love.

  9. 1jaded1 says:

    Here kitty, kitty, kitty…that’s what you all will be saying! Hee!

  10. Marjorie says:

    “We should get a hairless cat!” ~ hahaha this made my day 🙂

  11. At least you not us with a 5 foot snake that’s going to grow to 12 feet. 😀

  12. Aussa Lorens says:

    Ah! Everyone is talking about bacon and pancakes and yummy things tonight! I’m about to leave my house and go get me some of that goodness in the wee hours of the night, agh!
    Also, your comment on hairless cats is dead on: “scary beyond belief, hon.”
    Love the determination of your daughter 😉

    • The Hook says:

      Me too!
      By the way, your 5×5 post is well underway. All the pics and text are in place, now your intro has to make itself known in my consciousness.

      • Aussa Lorens says:

        Haha! I love that… “make itself known”… Just watch some sort of disturbing video online or walk around a Walmart at 2AM and you’ll probably find the proper inspiration…

      • The Hook says:

        Or I could just poach your comments here.
        By the way, we’re looking at the last week of December for your post which unfortunately means the Wednesday is January 1.
        I wouldn’t do that to you, however, so I’ll most likely share your brilliance on the 2nd.
        I’ll keep you posted!

      • Aussa Lorens says:

        Haha! Okay, awesome! Yeah… you know I’m going to have sooooomething to say at the start of a New Year 😉

      • The Hook says:

        I’d expect nothing less.
        After all, that’s why you’ll be here!

  13. Got bitten by a squirrel in my bedroom last week. Long story but wrap those critters! You daughter will go far….

  14. mairedubhtx says:

    There are hairless cats. Gotta love Sarah!

  15. I wish I had seen this yesterday, I could have used the laugh.
    You have to admire the way Sarah thinks. She could end up running this country.

  16. Chatty Owl says:

    Oh my, your daughter is amazing! Yeah, the next thing you know, your guests are having Kentucky fried cat for dinner! 🙂

  17. Katie says:

    It’s not a bad idea! Anything to improve the hairless cats.

  18. MissFourEyes says:

    Haha! I like the way she thinks

  19. “Kentucky Fried Cats”!!!!!!!!!!! 😆 We are more of “hot dog” kind of people! 😉
    I see the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree!

  20. Daile says:

    She is a resourceful young lady! I like her style 🙂

  21. We always want what we can’t have that is for sure …. hahahaha! The hairless cats are indeed scary beyond belief…YIKES! However, I’m very impressed with your daughter’s solution…the possibilities are endless. Just think of all the writing material this could provide …. hmmm.

  22. shimoniac says:

    I’m giggling. Bacon-wrapped squirrels. At least something’s well-wrapped around here. Also, try Bengal or Savannah cats. I’m deathly allergic to the regular kind, but never a problem with the Bengals. I co-own four of them, be aware though, they can be pricey.

  23. Sofia says:

    lol she’s too funny. You two have some great dialogue here. 🙂
    I love how your daughter thinks and works out her problems.
    When the new kitty coming. 😉

    • The Hook says:

      There will be no new kitty, I’m afraid.
      Thanks for the visit and the cool comments.

      • Sofia says:

        I thought so… 🙂
        She gave it a good try thought. 🙂
        You are so welcome and I also thank you for visiting our blog and commenting… Thank you.

    Too bad to be allergic to these furry creatures! I grew up with one and they’re such adorable little things. Plus, the relationship isn’t based on dominance, contrary to dogs.

    • shimoniac says:

      Of course your relationship with a cat is based on dominance. They are dominant over you. Dogs have owners. Cats have servants. Must go… Master MeowSir wants something.

      • bfg666 says:

        You don’t know what you’re talking about. Just because they’re not at your disposal doesn’t mean you’re at theirs. If you let your cat dominate you, it simply means you’re weak-willed and allow yourself to be dominated. But if you treat him as an equal, you’ll find the relationship is much akin to one with another human being.

    And so, as one writer to another, I say, “Interesting writing you have here”. I will go and read some other entries.

    As a writer, I came to read your entry called, “Letter to the Lost”. I knew by the title that this entry would be quite interesting and it was. Thankfully, I’ve never been “lost”, but I have to say that as life is and as life goes, I just was meant to come here to your blog to read your “cat” entry.

    Cats have been the topic this week, (behind the scenes, questions and answers, stories then well, more questions and more doubts and more real thoughts). Cats have a life of their own and perhaps the only truth that I can say about cats today are these truths: 1. If in the vicinity, nothing, and that is nothing will ever keep a kid from a cat and a cat from a kid. 2. Cats are such cool people! 🙂

    If anyone does need a cat, I’ll be glad to set you in the right direction as I know people who sometimes have an extra one or two.
