More Info on Fred the Cat


Remember last Friday we saw Fred the Cat hiding his face from the camera. We speculated that Fred might be in the Federal Feline Witness Protection Program. Perhaps he might be a spy or have his picture posted in the Post Office as one of the most wanted..

This photo adds to the mystery. It would appear that Fred the Cat is receiving some sort of secret message as he listens attentively to a seashell. Wonder if the NSA knows about this method of communication?

I must keep a vigilant watch over this creature and monitor his every move. He may be hatching some nefarious plan. I don’t like the looks of this.

Maybe Fred is one of those cats that look like Hitler and is ashamed, and therefore prone to hiding his face from the camera....

That's the way it is with cats isn't it - they speak in code, you know. Soemday, we will break the code and know all the secrets. Mostly cats tell me either: I hate your guts with their stare or I luv, luv luv you cause you're gonna feed me.

I think Fred has trapped an alien, mutant fer-in-ner terrorist in there.

Quick call the Thought Police and turn it over to Lindsay Graham for some Nice Torture!

it has long been my suspicion that cats are alien transmitters, observing us and reporting back. we can only guess at what intelligence those reports contain.

Well, if it was my daughter's cat, the 18 pound Tchoupa, he'd just knock it out of his way & lie down. On another track, I knew a mayor named Fred. He's no longer the mayor. I wonder if he listened to sea shells?

Ours may be communicating their nefarious plots with Fred. We strongly suspect that the gang of four is trying to do us in as they all enjoy snoozing on the stairs in such as manner as to send someone descending the stairs hurtling into space.

Others have frequently had thoughts on the cat

Mornin' pop,

I'm pretty much a died-in-the-wool dog person - having had one for probably 85% of my life, but a couple cats snuck in there, and they certainly had their pluses. I never have had a dog that I let sleep in my bed and I never had a cat I didn't. It's amazing I never smothered one of the cats in my sleep. I was always impressed with how cuddly and friendly the cats could be when they wanted to (or more likely, wanted something) and how aloof they could be when they had no immediate need for humans or their company. The prince has asked about getting a cat from time to time,but Mrs. P is about as anti catas anyone I know, soe I probably won't be emptying litter boxes any time soon.

How bad is the yard next door?

Cats are great, aren't they, POP?
Even if they resemble infamous figures from History.
As I write this, Dubya's on TV 'speeching'. If I hear reference to 911 one more time, I'll scream really loud.
It's "not political"....

Peace,

p.s. Hope all went well yesterday...

Mark Twain always said that red heads were the only humans descended from cats and that all the rest were from monkeys. I wonder how Fred feels about this?

Thanks to everyone who asked about the lot clearing operation next door. It’s still going on and it’s noisy, ugly and heartbreaking.

We had a man come to the house this morning to give us an estimate on extending our privacy fence to block our view of this disaster. As soon as the land clearing is all done we’ll give him the okay to begin some swift fence building.

Poor Fred the Cat can’t go out on his patio because I’m afraid the sights and sounds of this might freak him out. He’s in his room and it’s awfully quiet in there, much too quiet.

I think Fred is trying to save the world and is in grave danger. Have you told him about the new rule to wiretap seashell communications? Please warn him that his methods of communication are no longer safe, but under survelliance.

Actually, as a former NSA employee I can tell you that it is the ZX-442 communication device, used mostly by wayward cats. Be careful!

You know that the NSA has that thing tapped. They heard you talking about peace. Does anyone smell an empire coming on?

Aww Fred's so cute! Keep him away from the catnip! His plan will gain strange control on catnip!

Developers suck. They tear nature down for a living, and that's why they suck. No excuses, no exceptions. They suck, they suck, they suck. If they could just once develop something other than a shopping center, a sports arena, or an overpriced apartment complex (to wit, something that doesn't suck), then perhaps I'd harbor a more favorable opinion of them. Til then, they all suck.

What did any box turtle ever do to them, huh? Friggin' sadists...

PoP...I've been lurking your site for a few weeks and just want to say how much I enjoy coming here..

Fred is precious...as all creatures are....and I'm sorry about what's happening next door...

until then...
Be Well...

I truly admire the wonderful shell that Mr. Fred the Cat is studying. Perhaps he's in the interior decorating business and has carriage trade clients.

Although I must admit, he might be one of my former boyfriends in disguise.

Could it be? Could the revolution be starting? Will the felines rise up and overthrow the US government?

I sure hope so; I trust our kitties to do a better job than the current sorry excuse for leadership.

I think in your first picture, Fred was simply hiding his face because you hadn't made proper arrangements with his agent, for a photo shoot, yet. In the second, Fred is obbviously checking in with his agent. You should probably expect a lawsuit from Fred, soon.:)

I've got a shell like that, and a cat, and I tried to get her to listen to it once to see what her reaction would be, but she didn't seem interested. After seeing this, maybe I'll try again.

Have you ever noticed that when a cat urps up a hairball, it sounds an awful lot like "allahu akbar"? Well, maybe more like "ack-ack-ack-barf"...

Definitely keep an eye on terrist-kitty.

I used to have a cat that looked just like that and i named him bill, after the drugged out cat in the bloom county comic strip. And he was true to his namesake, acting like he got into somebody's drug stash(certainly not at MY house). He turned wild to the point that he wouldn't even eat cat food as he preferred his food alive when he as eating. had to take him for a ride to a new home by the local dump. I just wonder.....naw that can't be him.
