Why Cats Are Superior Fighters Than Dogs - Humor



A Scratching Post

Debbie got mulched yesterday, so as a favor to her (really she gave me some tuna treats as a bribe) I, Kiki the "Bad Newz Kitten" am writing a new post today.

Lucky You!! ….Because there will be No reposting from me. (I like scratching posts better.)

I want to write about something that has been on my mind for the last month and once in the news: Michael Vick and the Dogs Fighting.

With all the Fuss about dogs fighting, I want to make it purrrrfectly clear that “Cats Are Superior Fighters Than Dogs “

Dogs are just wannabees.

Ok , there are Devil Dogs and GA BullDogs .

But the Devil Dogs are United States Marines and the GA Dawgs are something else- those SICK Puppies! (I can still hear THAT howling cheer Goooo Georgia Bull Dogs Woof, Woof, Woof ! And now you have that chant to listen too all day long in YOUR head MurHaaa!!!)

Did you ever notice how many Sport teams are named after Felines?

The Pro FootBall teams seem to like Feline Names alot (I like hacking up fur balls myself). There are : Cincinnati Bengals, Jacksonville Jaguers, Carolina Pannthers and Detroit Lions.

And What about Collegiate Teams? Holy Mackeral! (I prefer tuna myself) There are so many !!!! There are: AMCats, Bearcats, Bearkats, Bengals, Bobcats, Cougars, Golden Bobcats, Golden Lions Golden Panthers, Golden Tigers, Hillcats, Jaguars, Lions, Lynx, Lyons, Maroon Tigers, Mountain Cats, Mountain Lions. Nittany Lions, Panthers, Pumas, Sea Lions (just threw this one in here to see if you were paying attention) ,Tigers, Tomcats, Wildcats (over 32! At the last count- but who is not doing the counting, I am!)

In our other Pro sports there are : MLB Detroit Tigers, NHL Panthers, and the newest team in the NBA is named after a what? Yep, a FELINE!!! It’s the Charlotte Bobcats (I think that ta certain tractor company is getting some royalties somewhere in this don’t you?)

Here are just a FEW things that make Cats Superior Fighters Over Dogs

Weapons -4 sets of SHARP claws that beat Paws Down those doggy painted toenails (yuck!) And here’s something else to think about for weapons of Cat Destruction –Catapults and Cat of Nine tails, as well as our version of the Catomic Bomb-the odor from the litter box.

Really Sharp Teeth- Our Motto is “Bite Me? I'll Go First!” and we sharpen our teeth with steel files (I made the steel files thing up-LOL)

Cunning and Intelligence- Even our “Playtime” is a form of Hunting Practice and we are Republicans Individuals, who don’t hunt in packs. We have learned to depend on our selves. (Correction here, My cousin the Lion does hunt in a pack. But he's the King, so we let him do whatever he wants to do.)

Climbing –We can go up trees faster than our cousins the monkeys. (Going DOWN trees is another blog post) We use the heights to paratail down on our victims.

Hearing- Say What? We have Superior Selective Hearing! We can hear the cat food can opening from miles away, but never, ever, hear you if we don’t want to. We will hear you before you can see us and guess what? We won't bark to give our hiding position away.

Pouncing and Jumping- Our Favorite Effective Form of Cattack!

Sneak Attack- We put the “P” in Patience. Why chase our pry, when we can just hide and wait for it to walk by? (We taught those Navy SEAL Lions a thing or two on SNEAK and Peak)

Hissing and Growling – This is our Sonar Warning System to Scare Off others when we are not in the mood for a fight (My mood right now is catnapping. What’s yours?)

Fast Runners- Can we say Cheetah, one of the fastest sprinters around? ( I call this going Mach Cat One, whoah, just like my fav. Navy Fighter, now retired -the TOMCAT. Hey, another name for a fighter- told yah, so. )

Stealth – We walk on our toes and our feet have thick, soft pads so we can move in Virtual Silence . Not like a clumsy, nail clicking dog. (Oh, yeah, I had a virtual dog once, and rebooted him off the screen in favor of the paper clip office helper.)

Clean –Most Dogs stink and drool. If your enemy can smell you, before he sees you , you’ve lost the advantage of surprise. (but I have to admit, attackers can slip on the dog drool when he’s attacking you, so I will give ½ of a point for drool)

Nine Lives- Dogs have only one life. If we die we come back, and back, and back, and back. Tenacious would be the word but it starts with Ten instead of Nine. (MeOuch on that one!)

Cattitude-We are the Proud Owners of that “ F %#K You in Your Face “ One (Debbie doesn’t allow that real “F” word due to the PG rating of this blog). Remember the word Feline starts with “F”.

With all these Superior Cat Natural Abilities , we know that dogs are the Real “Pussies” of the Fight World. (Pun intended- See we have an awesome sense of humor too!)

I can go on and on about how cats are Superior Fighters, but the bandwidth is only so big and the litter box is calling.

So if you’re gonna pick a Fight or just do some Fighting or just Sing a Fight Song- Be a copy cat and Fight Like a Cat!

So, How'd ya like the post? Should I do more post writing?

Nah, I rather play with the mouse than click with the mouse.

Jump the Hump Day Navy SEAL Post- Raising the Bar Funds Video

HooYah!!
It's Wednesday!
Time to Jump the Hump with a Navy SEAL Thing
.



The Oldest FrogHog on the Web (said only in the nicest way of course) just made it back from the SWAMP.

I was there for another meeting of the Tadpoles aka Wannabee FrogHogs in Training.

And I tell you the "kids" were really cooking. They found a way to raise some badly needed funds to visit their favorite SEAL-owned bar- Badfrogs.

I know that many of the Tadpoles were once in the Frog Scouts. So I know that no challenge is too difficult for them, especially if it involved obtaining alcoholic beverages.

I mentioned that they should have all waited until they finished earning their FrogHog Navy Pride tattoos
(not to be confused with a rivals group's Navy Pride Badge. ).

But, NOOOOOooo. They jumped right into it.

They called the op- Raising the Bar
(not to be confused with a rivals group's Operation thin mint)

I made them give a complete sitrep to earn their FrogHog Navy Pride tattoo session. And they also did a" dirt dive" to add ways to improve things.

See the op sitrep video below.

It was taken using their official FrogHog Oakley Sunglass-cams.

It is
only the daylight part of the op. The night part of the video was mysteriously erased, (so they told me.)

Here's the op report
