Kittens are so adorably stupid. They seem to be convinced that every inanimate object is alive - and what's more, it must be killed! Look! Network cable! Evil! *pouce* Gotcha! *Network cable does nothing* Think you can fool me?! I know you're bluffing! Just playing dead! *pouce again* Weee this is fun!
Having "killed" the network cable, he now tries to "kill" my tube of eczema cream - which, incidentally, he also killed this morning, and last night too. Kitty logic. If it's dead, kill it again! What, just to be sure? Well, how else can you be sure?
