Federal Feline Witness Protection Program



I learned something about Fred the Cat yesterday. Apparently he is in the federal feline witness protection program. Just as I aimed my camera at him, you can see what he did. He quickly covered his face with his paw.

I knew he had a life before he wandered up to my backdoor a few years ago, but I had no idea he was involved in something like this.

Beautiful coloring on Fred. Having retired from a life of a celebrity cat, he's just shy now.

If he's a spy, so is my youngest girl. She has her hand up or hiding behind sisters half the time.

Cute kitty.

I think his handlers told him to find a nice kind friend to live with.

You've done it now PoP. Spread his photo across the Internet and it won't take long for "them" to find him now.

With his face covered like that, I'd never be able to recognize him. [grin]. Nice spots! Looks like he's objecting to someone messing with his nap.

He may be hiding out, but what nefarious acts of espionage is he committing while wandering around the neighborhood?

Well maybe he thought someone was putting him on Bill O'Reilly's show and he just had to hide. After all, he doesn't wanna end up on the hit list!

Fred the Cat is a fly
On the wall when he delves...
What such kitty-cats spy,
They must keep to themselves.
Rest assured nonetheless,
'Cause you know it is true:
Could Fred talk, he'd confess
He is working for you!

PoP...I don't know if your readers have seen this, but if anybody ever needs a good laugh....just bookmark his guy. Harry Hutton in England. He never fails ...where else can you take a poll on :

" What's your favorite Baltic Republic ? " or
" If you were a British Fox, how would you like to be killed ? "

Chase me, ladies, I'm in the cavalry

I'd really like to spend a night at the with pub him and some of his friends.

There are a variety of disguises you can get for Fred. My friend Sunnie has a cat in the same program, and he regularly appears in costume - Qantas pilot; Puss 'n Boots; Chicago Bear footballer; Gorton Fisherman. Hard to recognize him.

I'm really going to miss you when you have to appear in front of that grand jury for outing yet another CIA agent!! For goodness sakes, don't ask Fred anything!! He may have to shoot you after he tells you!!

And that was the funniest post I've read in a long time!:)

beachblogger.....

I once had a cat I brough home from work. When I found him he was filthy. I stuck him in the employee sink {a big round sink with multible heads} and washed him.

He was black and white like Fred, but was very young. Now understand, I already had another older cat named David and two 29 Gallon Tall fish tanks.

When I got home with him and he saw the fish tanks you could see his eyes light up like a Christmas Tree. I said he sure has the Devil in his eyes and looks like a monster.

His name ended up being Monster. I had pet cats that all turned out to be lovers. Lap cat lovers they were. Now my new love is Ginger. Funny thing though is she's no lap cat, but a dog. She's my little Ginger Bread girl and she meets me at the door everyday when I get home from work.

When you get a cat you will have no problem naming him\her. You will know right away what name suits him\her and you will have a friend for life.

Take care and God Bless all.

Fred is a cat? I thought he was God. My cats think they are God, until they want me to feed them. Then they are all lovey dovey.

Just kidding a bit. I love my cats and they love me, when they feel like it.

Fred looks identical to the cat my grandparents had when I was I child. My big sister had named him Jody-Boots. He actually played hide and go seek with us. My grandparents had this very long corridor that ran the length of their house and it had the doors to the five bedrooms on that corridor. Jody-Boots would run down the hallway and hide behind a bedroom door and wait for us to walk down past and then he would jump out and scare us. If a cat can play hide and go seek, who the hell are we think they couldn't also be in Witness Protection?

Not to worry. If you get indicted for exposing his identity you can just use the Scooter Libby defense.... Cheney made you do it.

Give the poor guy a break...he's trying to nap and avoid the sun in his eyes. He probably had a heavy date the night before and is sleeping it off.

Our cat has to be this one's twin brother. When he assumes this almost indentical position, he's telling us to caress him with a foot. We can even put our feet on his throat. I've been meaning to post a pic and will ... someday.
