For weird reasons I watched some Muppet shows, they make me laugh :) But the permaculture stuff doesn't shut off in my head when I am laughing...
Rowlf the dog doing "The Cat Came Back"



I LOVE the expression on the cat's face, and I am totally amused that the neighbors all surrendered...

But I think that cat, from a permaculture perspective, counts as an unchangeable structural item that just needs to be worked into the system. Throwing everything you have at an unchangeable force of nature is a waste of time, energy, and resources. I'd find a way to work in an an unwanted housemate. :)

Deep thoughts from the Muppets!
I LOVE the expression on the cats face!! :D

Yep, an unchangable force of nature! The scene with the car getting wrecked reminded me of an old furry friend a few decades ago who used to love rides in the car and once jumped into a McDonald's (if I can say that name here😀 On a permaculture site) drive thru window.  The manager would've liked the cannon right about then.

For that happy memory, you get my very first apple to give.😄🎉

Thank you!

That was hilarious, thanks for sharing!  I loved the look on the "owners" face when the cat came back the last time.

Now I'll have that song stuck in my head for a few days

Tina: I am honored by your first apple!!! I curtsy nicely at you :D

I traveled for 2.5 years in a VW bus with cats, and they got into a lot of creative trouble, I never went through a drive up or I bet Tiggerato would have gone sniffing, he tended to stalk other people's barbecues, and their beer.

We tend to think our animals are domesticated, when in reality, they have their own lives, and just fake being domesticated!

I've had it stuck in mine, I am hoping writing this up will exorcise that demon
I LOVE the cat's expression

Do the next thing next. That’s a pretty good rule. Read the tiny ad, that’s a pretty good rule, too.
