Stayin' Alive

My sister named him Fox Mulder. I prefer Malorx, and Maloogy.

Fox (Mulder) is alive.

Meet Fox (Mulder). "Fox" for short. We used to be housemates, but his incessant alien-mouse-babbling and conspiracy-catnip-theory rants finally drove me to the brink. I moved out a few years ago.

But Fox still lives at my parents house. And, yes, he's still alive.

His evil twin used to roam the neighbourhood, often beating Fox up. But Fox can relax now, because his evil twin was killed on the weekend.

Everybody in the neighbourhood sadly waited at my parents front door to tell them the horrible story of how he perished, and how they'll never see his adorable "heart-paw" again.

Luckily they were wrong. Fox was safe in the house when his look-alike was killed. We were very happy, but sad and angry at the same time. The evil twin did not die a good death.

The ignorant, colossally assholish owners of a German Shepherd allowed their dog to run free in the neighbouring park, ignoring all posted By-Laws stating dogs MUST be kept on a leash at all times.

The German Shepherd instinctively chased after Fox's evil twin, who bolted for his life. Sadly, he made the unfortunate mistake of bolting across the road, directly in the path of a minivan.

Witnesses to this horror verbally attacked the owners of the German Shepherd, and with good reason. Their ignorance of the law caused 4 things:
1. A cat to die,
2. The owners of the cat to feel terrible grief,
3. The driver of the minivan to feel the same grief,
4. Every onlooker to this event to feel sick to the stomach.

One witness, in tears, grabbed the orange kitty from the road and drove it to a nearby vet, where his life slipped away, in the hands of two complete strangers.

Laws exist for our protection.
It's good to remember that.

Thinking is the cure for many of the world's woes. Especially thinking beyone your own selfish bubble.

I must say I do let my dog off his leash in the park but he is fully trained & if I call him he'll come straight back to me. He's also scared of cats so would be unlikely to chase them. Even so I will be extra careful after reading this as it's so sad

i don't know what it is there, i can't remember the formula for figuring it out, but it is COLD!

i'm glad your cat is still alive, sad for the other one, but better it be ran over and die quickly then torn apart by a stupid dog that has a stupid owner!

I hope your other cat has a long and happy life. I know how I felt when I thought I'd found my cat dead in the street. It turned out to be someone else's, but it still made me feel bad that someone's cat was dead.

Initially, I was pissed that you had to identify the dog as a German Shepherd but then you did point out that the dog was just actng instinctively and it's the owners who are to blame.

Oh Kayla... I'm going to sing annoying songs with you when I see you!

At the same time, I could have pointed out that cat-owners should try and keep their cats on their property, but then cats don't have a history of attacking children in parks.

I bet some do. There was a squirrel once that attacked a girl in England. It jumped on her face and wouldn't let go.

LOL! That's terrible, but so absurd that it's funny at the same time.
