Chomps the Cat (1992-2009)

Thanks Yves and Mark for the compliments :)

Mark, is 'Maria' what the wedding music is called then? I can name all the other themes I've used, but I didn't know what that one was called...

(The others are 'Happy Birthday', Tchaikovsky's 'Romeo and Juliet' overture, a theme from near the end of the last movement of Rachmaninov's 2nd piano concerto, and - obviously - 'Three Blind Mice'.)

[EDIT]
The Internets tells me the other theme is the Wedding March from 'Lohengrin' by Wagner, so now I'm confused. The site I'm on tells me that 'Ave Maria' is often used in weddings, but it isn't that theme. Is that what you're thinking of?

Tchaikovsky's 'Romeo and Juliet' overture

That's what I meant. There was an instrumental arrangement I heard many times which mixed Romeo and Juliet with West Side Story and I get them mixed up sometimes.

It's a field-mouse year now, at least in Finland, and our Lolli brings one field-mouse to our porch almost once a week. The strange thing is all seem to have their tails cut off. Either it's how Lolli catches them and plays with them until they die. Or it's that dreadful farmer's wife with her carving knife.

These things you never really go away, but you get over them, sounds like you're well on your way. Cheer up. In a little while, you might get a new one, maybe it's kind of morbid to think about now, but whatever.

I still miss max & sam. :-/

I think the next place I move to will have to be pet friendly.

Yeah, if I were to loose jasper, I'd most likely get a kitten sometime soon after getting over jasper's passing. In fact I want to get a kitten right now, but after Chase... Yeah, he was a rotten little bastard.

We'd name our pet steers after famous people (e.g., Presidents), and then eat them after they (the steers) died. :-X

But we never named our pigs or ate our cats.

We have an old cat that I have an "understanding" with like Mark described. But she was raised by a schizophrenic: so a) she isn't always nice b) she has the weirdest taste (she'll steal cucumber and avocado!). My parents decided we should have a "spare" cat for my little sister. He's called Che, after Che Guevara. He's a real annoyance, but will take on any abuse loudly purring.

my Chase sounds similar to Che. I got him from my sister as a birthday present a few years ago. He was absolutely the largest smallest purr ball ever when he was a kitten. He was the runt, and he acted all kinds of scared and sucky. He would lay on my lap for hours every day. Then he started growing up. Spent almost as much time on my lap, but just about as much time harassing Jasper (my older cat), and crapping behind my couch. He is quite rambunctious. It got so bad I just couldn't keep him anymore :( Had to give him to my sister's inlaws. He is quite happy out on that large acreage. So it was a good decision. Even if he was an evil little cat, I still miss him :(

That sounded bad the first time.
