housekeeping for cats

sweeping up them orange feathers by Samara Pearlstein

A cat is not a reptile. Snakes and alligators and things eat their prey whole: fur, claws, feathers, beaks, everything. A cat cannot digest these things. Only the very best tender inner organs and savory muscley bits for our feline overlords. So when a cat eats a bird, what you will often see in the way of leftovers is a cloud of now spare feathers.

In this case, orange and black feathers.
Quite the mess. We can't have people walking in and slipping all over these things, you know. We've got to clean them up. A vacuum just blows them around when it approaches.

Oh yes. This is a job for

a broom.

Sweep! Sweep! Sweep! I know it’s early (and hard on the heels of a lot of NOT ticking in synch), but it’s nice to see the team starting to tick more or less in synch, bench players, relievers, and all.

  1. Every time we play the Orioles, I remember that 4-game sweep… in Baltimore, no less… back in 2003. It represented over 9% of our wins for the entire season. That had to be embarrassing for them. I get a chuckle out of it, personally.

  2. […] Samara has the best broom picture. (Roar of the Tigers) […]

  3. Yeah, Jeff, I try to not think about that season at all, for the most part. I think that kind of deep humiliation is really par for the course for most Baltimore fans by now, though.

    I like the illustration. That’s very cool.

  5. Heh, I hardcore cheated with the illustration… it’s one I drew and used last season. :P
