Working from home: Telstar v Nanila [20120702|13:04]

[Tags|, , , , ]

I'm working from home today. This is what I have done so far.

  • Seen off the bloke on his weekly commute to Brum at an early hour.
  • Sent e-mails and cleaned out my inbox of all urgent matters.
  • Done two loads of washing.
  • Done the daily ops checks for the Cassini magnetometer.
  • Done the weekly housekeeping checks for the Cassini magnetometer.
  • Updated an archiving spreadsheet for Cassini magnetometer data.
  • Calibrated Cluster magnetometer data.

Here is what Telstar has done today.

  • Gone outside for two minutes to ascertain that it is, indeed, grey and wet there.
  • Begged for and obtained gooshy food.
  • Lain down in the exact centre of the bed.
  • Changed positions approximately twice in the ensuing four hours.

Someone remind me which of us is the intelligent one, here?

When referring to Zev as "Stupid", I've had people querying that, based on who has food and lodgings provided for her, and in return gets to sleep, and generally wander in and out, as and when she cares to!

What's that saying? Dogs have owners; cats have staff. Yep. That's us.

Cats are the only animals ever to have chosen domestication and trained their humans appropriately.

I think the cleverest part was getting the humans to think that they're so lucky to have such beautiful cuddly companions.

My only question is did they zero in on us as a species of suckers, or did cats try a few other species and decide we were the most pliable?

We must have been an obvious choice. Big bimbling furless bipedal dopes. But we know how to make fire.

Lazy woman!

Where is the hour of Telstar petting, tummy rubs and ear scritches? He turned over TWICE in FOUR hours, good heavens thats desperate attention seeking.

You must do better!

Don't worry, he got me back. He lay down on my legs. I didn't want to disturb him and so both my feet went numb.

All well-loved cats do! They don't have to lift a paw if they don't want to. :P
