This is a hilarious video about a cat who became an author because, back in the 70s when there were no computers, a researcher didn't want to go through the trouble of changing all the "we's" in his paper to "I's." (apostrophes intended for clarity)

While I had not seen the video previously, I've known about Willard for years. That guy on the video talks faster than I can listen!

All my stupid cat does is slee or beg for food.I may keep him wide awake and hungry to see if he has some worthwhile ideas.


Give a man a fish and he can eat for one day; give a man a fishing pole and he will find an excuse to never work again.

My spouse's felis terribilis opens firmly closed doors, knocks stuff off the kitchen counter, and pees in the dog's water bowl.
I HATE THAT DAMNED CAT!

We got a emi-feral cat from the shelter when it flooded several years ago. I worked with him to get him so we could pick him up. Took two years. On the day I had to pick him up to go in the carrier for his shots, he came out like a feline buzzsaw, scratched and gouged my leg and fastened his teeth in my hand Within two hours I had a baseball glove on the end of my arm, and an ER bill.
I LOVE THAT MONSTER!

I can only assume that your typo means an "emo-feral" cat.

Edited because I had a typo in the word "typo".

Thanks, Kalleh, for that video. I found the story of Willard interesting but, like Geoff, I didn't care for the presentation. He did speak faster than I like, but I had no trouble following him. It was his perpetual motion that bothered me. He seemed to have a nervous condition.

semi-feral

He tries to put ten minutes of material into five of time.

I agree that the presenter spoke quite fast. i assumed it was from his English background. I've often found that with English speakers.

On the other hand, folks from North Carolina seem to speak so slowly that I can hardly stand it. In my work I come across people from all over, and I've found that to be true of many people from NC (though not you, Geoff).
