My Best Friend Was A 40 Pound Cat.

This cat killed and ate my entire family in 1985.

In 1983, I had a cat that weighed more than I did. I consider this one of my raddest possessions, even to this day.

I was out sick yesterday, and I have a Doctor's appointment today for my ankle, so please sound off in the comments section and talk about how much cooler things used to be before we got old and hurty.

Comments:
I think I may have fractured my toe by dropping a case of wine on it yesterday, and my right shoulder made a sickening popping noise Tuesday night when I lifted a keg, and it still hurts when I move it a certain way.

Injuries from alcohol...it's so sad when you get hurt by someone you love so much.

Seriously, is that real, or is that photoshopped?!

That cat is HUGE. Awesome.
 
That picture totally looks like one of those old time hoax post cards - the type with kids riding giant grasshoppers or a farmer walking his ginormous chicken on a leash.

Seriously - how did that cat walk, pulling all of that bulk around? I can only assume it was "all muscle"? You're looking at it all "I wonder if I can ride that thing...?"
 
That's a real cat. IT's actually normal sized...the CDP was just a miniature baby.
 
JT - You gotta stretch before you lift all that stuff. My God, kegs are heavy. Hope you and Missus Melissa had a good night.

BRUCE/MAUS - This is a real photo (I can put more up later) of a real cat. As you can see, her belly was only an inch from the ground; she was crazy-huge. What a great pet, though; she was always around to play with me, even though I probably pet her the wrong way and pulled her tail a lot.

HATHERY - I was a baby-sized baby, but I was at least 1 in this photo.

I'm seeing a Sports Therapist within a week for X-rays and an MRI. They still don't know for sure what's wrong with me.
 
Awesome. I had a cat that looked exactly like that. Except, obviously, smaller. He lived to be 21 1/2. No joke. On his 21st birthday, we took a picture of him with a party hat on and a bottle of MGD. He liked to lick ice cold bottles.
 
Wow. I hope that my cats live to be 21. They're both about 9 right now, so the thought of another 12 healthy years makes me really happy.

When I was at the Doctor's office, my blood pressure was up because I was nervous. When they took it later on, I thought about my cats, and it dropped back down to normal. Talk about weird.
 
I'm more of a dog person really, but my dog and I are getting up there -- 17 and 27 respectively. We both move a lot slower now and whine when told to go outside.
 
A little gray hair around the muzzle, eh' Domsar?
 
I had a friend whose cat lived to be 22, so I know it's possible. My little sister's cat is almost 15.

We did have a good night - watched The Simpsons Movie, drank beer, and played Battleship. We're wild and crazy like that. (Also, I am undefeated in Battleship.)
 
Took my cue and though about the cats when they took your blood pressure, eh CDP? Last time I went it, I though about Gabe and managed to lower my blood pressure 30 points. Amazing. Cats really do have their uses.
 
Yeah, I just knew that I was nervous and needed to chill out. Worked like a charm.

JT, when you play Battleship, do you make the explosion sound when a ship is sunk? I force my opponents to do that, Seinfeld-style.
 
That cat makes Tinker look petite. Waifish, even.
 
Trust me, that's the only way Tinker's gunna look waifish.
 
This picture would be perfect for a caption contest!

Baby CDP: Must... ride... cat...
Cat: Must not eat another child.
