Our friend Fred was over, and we were talking about our cats and their weird behaviors. Fred has two teenaged male cats, recently fixed, and dumb as a box of rocks. One of these cats, named Cole, apparently walked into a lit cigarette, and singed some of his whiskers. This happened outside on Fred and his wife Gretta’s patio, when someone rested their lit cigarette in the ashtray. Cole and his curious nature caused him to have an unplanned uncomfortable negative reaction, and his response was to hunch down and dart around frantically. Fred said they were trying to catch Cole to put him in the house, but he was hissed off and kept running away from them.
(when Fred said hissed off, I about hissed my pants laughing).
