A series of emails between me and my husband:

me:  Hey.  Wanna see what I’m gonna look like when I’m old?

Victor: Is that a hat? DO NOT BUY ANOTHER HAT. We live in Texas, for God’s sake.

me:  It’s not a “hat”, Victor.  You’re insulting all three of us here.

Victor:  …Three?

me: 

Victor: This is why she doesn’t come to you when you call her.

me: She doesn’t come because she’s a cat.  She fucking loves this.  She feels useful. For once.

Victor:  Did you actually need something or…?

me:  I did have one serious question.  Does this cat make me look fat?

Victor: Stop emailing me cat pictures.

me: “Said no one ever.” Hey, I need something.

Victor: STOP EMAILING ME. I’M WORKING.

me: AND I NEED SOME BANDAIDS. Like, a lot of bandaids. And some iodine.

Victor: I’m blocking this email address.

  60. My cat doesn’t like to be my hat, either. But she does like being my stole. You should try that. You might need less iodine. Or more, though putting iodine on your neck might look stupid whereas bloody scratches on your neck looks like you won the fight with the vampire. Really, there is no downside to a cat stole.
    Oh, wait, you’re in TX. So stay indoors because there is a downside to a cat stole: it’s too hot to wear outside and if you do, you’ll get sweat and wet (from sweat) cat hair in your neck wounds so…maybe…stay inside with your cat stole so the cat scratches on your neck don’t get infected because you didn’t iodine them because you wanted people to think you can outfight vampires.

  143. I love that he seemed LESS angry when he found out it was the cat than when he thought it was a “another hat”. ROFL.

  144. That’s awesome! You’d make one sassy old lady with a cat hat.

    Joanne recently posted Things kids can get away with… that adults would be judged for if we did in public.

  145. Thought of trying this…but alas, my cat’s a Maine Coon!

  146. Ok, stupid question. How did you take the pictures while holding the cat. I tried to get our cat Eddie to take a Cat Head picture with me and Ginger cat, but he wasn’t available until next Tuesday. Sigh.

    (Photobooth. I recommend. ~Jenny)

  147. OMG, I love it! Our cat is a giant fluffy basketball…a basketball ass-cat that cannonballs the bed all night from way up in the windowsill. Too bad he’d look like a bearskin hat the Grenadier Guards would wear outside a royal palace because he totally deserves to be a hat. :)

  148. I heard on Wait Wait Don’t Tell me that someone actually did a study and discovered that people who look at cat pictures at work are happier and more productive. As a businessman Victor should know this. I blame him.

    Cats as hats. I think that could totally work!! If he blocks your email, how will he know when you discover something as awesome as a cat as hat? :-D

  150. Share this one with your dad. I think maybe he can relate! It made me smile.

  151. He so doesn’t get you…sad!

  155. And the cat is sitting there, thinking to itself…”and humans call US weird! – ooohhh! BUG!”

    I think it’s just lovely that you have such a close relationship with your cat that she allows you to put her cat pubes on your head … Cat as a Hat indeed.

  158. My wife rescued a tiny TINY six week old cat from the side of the road yesterday (We live in the middle east, the little guy didn’t stand a chance – he was in the middle of the road too)

    I have since gone up to check on him and “Try him on”.

    He is more of a Yarmulke size guy, and clings happily to the approprioate part of my skull.

    I won’t be wearing him in public, I’m not sure my neighbours would see the humour.

    What with me living in the United Arab Emirates and all…

    he will be a “round the home” skull cap me thinks.

    Go to YouTube and search sad cat. The authorities will thank you.

  163. Can we please have a moratorium on “Said no one ever”? I mean, it’s really funny here, but I’ve seen the phrase in just about every blog post I’ve read this week. Isn’t there a different meme we could use?

  164. *wipes.away.tears* Oh sweet mercy, it is good to laugh! I snorted my morning coffee when I got to the bandaids portion of the convo.

    My cats come when you call them. Unless they’re comfortably rolled up in something. Or interested in what they’re looking at. Or are just copping a ‘tude.

    You always cheer me up. You are my favorite person. Ever. Well, except for my daughter.

    It’ll be an experiment.

  170. ok you are nuts. I love you. I am reading your book right now (well not at this exact moment as I am writing this) but I cannot stop laughing. I thought I was socially awkward, but man – you take the prize. I would so love to stand next to you at any given moment to hear what would come out of your mouth. and I wouldn’t laugh, I would egg you on. well I would laugh, but not at you, I would be laughing with you

  171. Oh the laughing… going to make my Hubs read this when he gets home, as he’s often wearing our Louie as a hat.

    Jess recently posted How an Owl is Pushing the Draw of the Ocean.

  172. My cat , Le Queen, obviously read your blog because I came home from work all happy to see her with my camera in hand, and she held up a sign that said, “IF YOU PICK ME UP AND PUT ME ON YOUR HEAD, I WILL KILL YOU IN YOUR SLEEP. I HAVE BEEN PRACTICING.”

    Well played, Meow.

  184. Your cat looks just like our oldest cat. Disgruntled glare included.
    She likes to pretend to be a rooster and meow at us until we get up and walk to the kitchen to *watch her* eat her food. It’s already in the bowl. She just needs us to witness the feast.

  185. Umm…your books are organized by color??!! What beautiful chaos!

    LMAO!!!! Hysterical…. I think Cat Hats are very in this year!! Does Victor not know of the “Cat in the Hat”???
    It so doesn’t make you look fat, in a cat hat, it makes you looking feline feminine yet all the while keeping you
    toasty warm in the air conditioning!!!! Cat Hats are going to be all the rage, so what if it’s a gabillion degrees in Texas… if you got it flaunt it!

  187. you can definitely tell she feels useful… plus cat hats are all the rage! If someoneeeeeee (thanks dad) hadn’t run over my cat with his car I would totally rock a cat hat. Now I’m stuck in the squishy-pillow as hat stage. I hope to move forward someday.

    I am so glad I am not the only one to try out my cat as a hat. Yours makes an awesome one. Extra points for getting a picture of it. I can never manage that!

  190. Jenny, you must start a new trend. Cat hatting instead of cat bearding (which is pretty lame)… cat hatting would be awesome!

    This is the conversation I imagined you and victor having…

    Victor: WHY are you wearing a cat on your head???

    Jenny: because wine….

    After I heard that in my head, everything made sense

  192. hey! I also color code my bookshelf. don’t go as far as size though.

  197. look up CatBeards (images) pretty funny

  198. I laughed out loud, maybe wine came out my nose. Don’t be judgey. Thank you for the cat humor, I really needed it today. Btw my kids do this with their chinchilla, she always poops on their heads. Consider yourself lucky,

  199. Omg this is awesome. I have been trying to convince my cat to become a cat hat for years!

  200. In that top picture, you look exactly like my Mother in Law. It’s uncanny.

    mrs c recently posted Donating Blood.

  201. You know what? You’re going to look exactly like that when you’re 80, plus a few wrinkles: a face that’s alive, amused, and thinking.

    That’s the best.

    Jerimi recently posted Mental Health Club.

  204. Oh my gosh, it looks like you shelve your books by color. I love that! I’m going to do that! While wearing one of my cats on my head, of course.

    Do you think using a tuna fish rinse in the shower will help them stay put?

  205. Hilarious! My dog would never let me do this. But if she did, I could have some super-strong arms some day.

  207. Hilarious. Aside from that I’m pretty much speechless. And jealous of your genius ability to always make me laugh so hard my husband looks over at me like I’m some kinda idiot.

    Adrienn recently posted What's in a name?.

  208. I totally thought that was a taxidermied cat on your head. My cat would never do that.

  209. Kitty does NOT look happy. At all. lol.

  210. Jenny,
    Any chance I could borrow your chat for my date Thursday night? It will go perfectly with my new dog dress. :)

  211. What you need is a black cat. As a hat. Black cat, black hat. Black hat, black cat. It’s the same ducking thing no matter which way you say it!

  212. Please, please, please get your techy person to rework your comment section and put a like, thumbs up, or right on bro. There are so many of these that are flrickin hilarious!

  213. I have been undergoing chemotherapy and my hair fell out. I’ve been wearing a wig…and live in Florida. I have told all my friends that it feels like wearing a big cat on your head. I am calling this pic “What Jenny would look like if she had cancer.”

    Amy recently posted The Purple Tattoo: Goodbye Chemo Amy.

  214. The most surprising thing about this post was that the cat was alive.

    Muriel @ TheFarmerstaft recently posted Bright spots..

  215. I think my husband should meet your husband, just so I can go, “See, it COULD be worse! You could be married to HER.” I jest. sort of.

    Thanks for making me laugh, it has become harder and harder to do that recently, and I really needed it. Tell Victor if he wants to hang out with my husband I will send along a gift of new towels. and hats!

  216. I have to tell you, that I LOVE your sense of humor! We’re quite similar, and I have decided that i most definitely need to marry someone like Victor :P My favourite posts, are your conversations with him.. oh not to forget the chicken :D

    I have the exact same cat here in new Zealand. Amazing, I’ll have to send you a photo. Igor is about 9 or 10 years old I’m not sure exactly because he appeared in my yard and I adopted him 9 years ago. He has a congenital problem with his eyes and has had to have one removed so we wont get them mixed up. He loves me with a passion because I saved him and I supply the food (he is a bit obsessed with eating as he was starving when he arrived). thanks for sharing and I hope your recovering well from your Cholecystectomy, if I was your nurse (my job) I wouldn’t yank out your drains, I think that sounds terrible. Cheers Jacqui. PS I read your book while on holiday great fun, drove my partner mad laughing aloud. TE HE.

  218. I’ve been forbidden from sending my husband pet photos while he’s working for the same reason.

    Some people just don’t appreciate the things we go through.
