I figure that I could give him a little flotation device around he neck, toss him in, and go to the next bridge with a looooong net. Maybe I would catch him. I'd certainly try.

What do you think of my plan.

Aw, I was only kidding. I would never intentionally hurt our cat. He's a pest, and was thrust upon us against my wishes. But he is a part of our family now, and loved. His love of us comes because he wants to be scratched, fed treats, fed, and catered to. Our love of him come because he's so good at, um, he's so good at, it's just not coming to me. He's so good at... Oh well, we love him anyways, most of the time, not when he tears across my legs, leaving claw piercings in my skin, in the middle of the night.

I saw it's pet-friendly, this is great! Sometimes when people ask me if I have any hobbies, I tell them I'm into herding cats, LOL!

I'd respond, but I'm too busy with my cat's "I want to go out, I want to come in" thing.

Thanks!

Luckily my cats are indoor cats...I'd be shoving them in or out! Gently.

Herding cats is easy. Let's see you put half a dozen kittens in a basket!

If herding cats is too easy, try herding 8 or 9 3-week old chicks!

Ok, so since we're comparing the difficulties of herding different critters, try herding 9 to 10 teen-age boys (young men) through 4 foot of snow, to build a winter campsite of snow, and tents, especially when they have a love of pelting your tent at 2:30 a.m., in sub-zero weather, with snowballs. Trust me, herding chicks, and kittens is easy.
