A policeman in the big city stops a man in a car with a Siberian Lynx in the front seat. “What are you doing with that Siberian Lynx?” he exclaims. “You should take it to the zoo.”

The following week, the same policeman sees the same man with the cat again in the front seat, with both of them wearing sunglasses.

It was Christmas Eve. A poor old lady was sitting alone except for her cat, in her tiny house, in front of a small fire.

Suddenly, there was a flash of light, and the old woman’s good fairy appeared in the room.

The old woman was astonished, but the fairy reassured her: “Don’t be afraid! I am your good fairy. You are very poor, and all alone at Christmas, so I have come to grant you three wishes, to cheer you up.”

The old woman was about to speak, but the fairy held up her hand. “Wait!” she said. “Before you make a wish, think carefully! You will get exactly what you wish for, and no wish can be undone!”

So the old woman sat silently, staring at the fire and thinking.

Eventually, she spoke. “First,” she said, “I want to be very, very wealthy.”

Poof! Immediately, the tiny house was packed with pots full of gold coins and sacks of bank notes. There was more money than anyone could spend in an entire lifetime. The old woman looked around and smiled.

She thought some more, and spoke again: “Next,” she said, “I want to be young and beautiful again, like I was when I was 18.”

Poof! The old woman disappeared. In her place sat a beautiful young woman, with smooth white skin and long golden hair. The woman looked at her hands and arms, felt her hair, and smiled.

“Third,” she said to the fairy, “I want you to change my cat into a handsome young prince, who will love me and take care of me all my life!”

Poof! The fairy disappeared, and the cat leaped up from his place by the fire as a handsome young prince. He reached out to the woman, pulled her to her feet, embraced her, and kissed her passionately.

Then he gazed into her eyes and said: “Hah! Now you’re really going to be sorry that you took me to the vet!”

One day a lady took an old non-moving hamster to the veterinarian. The doctor looked at the hamster and shook his head. “I believe your hamster is dead,” said the doctor.

“Are you sure?” the lady asked.

“I need to run a few tests to be positive,” said the vet.

The man left the room and came back with a Labrador retriever. It stood up on its hind legs and sniffed the hamster and shook its head.

The doctor left the room again and came back with a cat. The cat also sniffed the hamster and shook its head.

The doctor said that the hamster was 100% dead. With the lady still in shock, the doctor handed her the bill.

She looked in disbelief… “$400!? Why $400?”

The doctor replied, “Because we had to do a lab report and a cat scan!” (Source)

Go to your back door and look for the dog.

If the dog is at the door and he is wet, it’s probably raining.

If the dog is standing there drenched, it is probably raining extremely hard.

If the dog’s fur looks like it’s been rubbed the wrong way, it’s probably windy.

If the dog has snow on his back, it’s probably snowing.

Of course, to be able to tell the weather like this, you have to leave the dog outside all the time, especially if you expect bad weather.

Yours sincerely, The CAT. (Source)

A couple was going out for the evening. They got ready – showered, all dressed up, put the cat out, etc.

The taxi arrived but as the couple left the house, the cat shot back in.

They didn’t want the cat shut in the house on its own while they were out, so the wife went out to the taxi while the husband went back inside and followed the cat upstairs to chase it out.

The wife didn’t want the taxi driver to know the house would be empty, so she told him, “My husband’s just going upstairs to say goodbye to my mother.”

A few minutes later, the husband came out and got into the cab saying, “Sorry I took so long, the stupid old thing was hiding under the bed and I had to poke her with a coat hanger to get her to come out.”

A tomcat and a tabby cat were courting on a back fence one evening. The tom leaned over to the tabby with pent-up passion and purred, “I’d die for you!”

The tabby gazed at him from under lowered eyelids and asked, “How many times?” (Source)

Two female cats are sitting on the fence passing the time of day when a handsome tomcat walks by and winks at them.

“Oh darling, did you see that one?” one of the felines opines. “I wouldn’t mind sharing a dead mouse with him.”

“Oh, forget about him,” her friend tells her. “I went out with him once, and all he did was talk about his operation.”

Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray this cushy life to keep.
I pray for toys that look like mice,
And sofa cushions, soft and nice.
I pray for gourmet kitty snacks,
And someone nice to scratch my back,
For windowsills all warm and bright,
For shadows to explore at night.
I pray I’ll always stay real cool
And keep the secret feline rule
To never tell a human that
The world is really ruled by cats!

Cat Truths

If someone from the 1950s suddenly appeared, what would be the most difficult thing to explain about life today? One answer: “I possess a device in my pocket that is capable of accessing the entirety of information known to man. I use it to look at pictures of cats and get into arguments with strangers.”

They make cat food out of cow, fish, turkey, chicken, and lamb meat—but not mouse meat, which is probably all cats want. (Source)

What is the first thing a cat does in the morning? It wakes up. What is the second thing it does after waking up? It goes back to sleep. (Source)

Top 10 reasons why dogs are better pets than cats (because we all need a little self-deprecation now and then)

  1. Dogs will tilt their heads and try to understand every word you say. Cats will ignore you and take a nap.
  2. Cats look silly on a leash.
  3. When you come home from work, your dog will be happy and lick your face. Cats will still be mad at you for leaving in the first place.
  4. Dogs will give you unconditional love until the day they die. Cats will make you pay for every mistake you’ve ever made since the day you were born.
  5. A dog knows when you’re sad. And he’ll try to comfort you. Cats don’t care how you feel, as long as you remember where the can opener is.
  6. Dogs will bring you your slippers. Cats will drop a dead mouse in your slippers.
  7. When you take them for a ride, dogs will sit on the seat next to you. Cats have to have their private basket, or they won’t go at all.
  8. Dogs will come when you call them. And they’ll be happy. Cats will have someone take a message and get back to you.
  9. Dogs will play fetch with you all day long. The only things cats will play with all day long are small rodents or bugs, preferably ones that look like they’re in pain.
  10. Dogs will wake you up if the house is on fire. Cats will quietly sneak out the back door.

In the year 3000, animals rule the Earth; they talk and drive sports cars. An owl enters a psychologist’s office. The psychologist says to the owl, “What is your problem?” The owl replies, “I always sleep at night and am awake during the day. I am an owl, and we usually are awake during the night.” The psychologist tells the owl to come back in two days to solve his problem as he is very busy. The next night, a cat comes in. He says, “I always sleep during the day. Like my friends, I want to sleep during the night. Can you help?” The psychologist advises the cat to come back in one day as he is very busy. The next day, the cat comes very, very, very early for his appointment and ends up at the same time as the owl. The cat is told to wait outside. He peeks in the owl’s appointment and figures out his problem … and his address! The next evening, when the owl usually comes in for his appointment, the cat comes in. The psychologist asks the cat why he is here instead of the owl. The cat replies, “He is here!” and poops on the floor, explaining, “I was sent to deliver him.” (Source)
