For your pleasure

by Matthew Cobb

I have shamelessly copied all these gifs (yes, that’s “jiffs”, folks!) (and yes, some of them appear to be jpgs) and the titles from buzzfeed. I am lazy and Jerry is somewhere between Germany and Chicago, and presumably hellishly jet-lagged. The original title of this selection of gifs is “28 cats having a way worse day than you”.

    Thank you Matthew, that helps. Just in case you know: if your reader’s day is worse than all of those kittys’ days combined, who is to be blamed? Would be so nice if there was someone to blame… I know, that wish ismost likely in vain, but if anybody knows, you guys will…

    I asked my geekie son (one of them) about the giff/jiff thing. Apparently it’s only a “jiff” if you’re American. 😉

      Because they’re made in a jiffy? 😀

        You’d think it would be guh because it comes from graphical, does it not? I think I’ve heard it both ways in Canada.

        This reminds me of the best (apocryphal) advertising slogan ever –
        Got a stiffy? Get a Jiffy!

    From what I’ve heard from her human, Grumpy Cat is actually a sweetheart, and it kind of shows in that video. Which makes it all the funnier to compare with the Grumpy Cat memes 😀

    Ceiling fan cat…now that was funny.

    I had no idea cats could just bite through a can. I suppose it’s not that hard to believe but it was a bit surprising.

    My sister told me she offered our cat a strawberry recently and it gave a loud cry and ran away. I tried the same thing and it did make a weird sound. Do cats just hate strawberries?

      Though I did not catch it on video, I still have the can that one of my Siamese (the dear departed Kizhé) bit through. I had a cardboard case of pop cans sitting on the floor, and at one point noticed that Kizhé was a bit wet, and that there was a puddle on the floor. So I took out all the cans to put them away, and discovered one of them was empty and had toothmarks in it. Mystery solved! (Kizhé also bit a hole in my waterbed. And the liner had slipped so it was no longer under the bladder everywhere. And I was away for a weekend. Water, water everywhere. But I still miss him.)

    I don’t usually like cats but I think I just changed my mind. Great start to a day.
