About three weeks ago, I had to euthanize my almost ten-year-old Manx after a very sudden illness that the veterinarians were unable to diagnose. She will be sadly missed. That’s her in the picture. She was a cutie, eh?
In this installment of Listeria, I decided to put together the whole list myself. You’re welcome to contribute to the list, to one-up me with your own comic masterpieces, but this is my contribution and tribute to a cat that frustrated the hell out of me as much as she loved and was loved.
What Happened to My Cat’s Other Eight Lives?! Huh?!
- That toaster didn’t toss itself into the bathtub
- I probably shouldn’t have named him “Kervorkian”
- Brutally beheaded by the neighbor’s cat, ironically named “Isis”
- Accidentally crushed by the biggest ball of twine in Minnesota
- Worst. Hairball. Ever!
- Probably shouldn’t have used real poison during re-enactment of “Romeo and Juliet”
- That Fugu-flavored Fancy Feast may not have been properly prepared

Remember, if you don’t want to play this week’s game, there are previous Listeria topics still in play. Chances are still really good that one of your posts will be featured in the next ebook issue of National Pasquinade.
