You thought yesterday's picture was scary...
This is Mrs Ritchie's mother-in-law's cat. I'm told it was the nastiest, most anti-social creature you could hope to meet. And then they shaved it, as per Exhibits A and B, above. Mrs R told me that the shaving made a world of difference to this cat's attitude, and I was thinking, well, yeah, it's probably pretty cowed and embarrassed now.
Au contraire, my friends. Apparently it has now morphed into a face-rubbing, mega-purring love monster. Does he not look like he figures he's one pretty fit fellow?
Look what's still in contention in Canada Reads:
A Complicated Kindness
Here's how the voting went today:
Maureen McTeer voted against Three Day Road
Nelofer Pazira voted against A Complicated Kindness
John K Samson voted against Three Day Road
Scott Thompson voted against Rooms for Rent in the Outer Planets
Susan Musgrave voted against Three Day Road
So tomorrow, the final day, it comes down to A Complicated Kindness versus Rooms for Rent in the Outer Planets. A rebellious Mennonite teenager against the raunchy, rowdy poems of Al Purdy.
Susan Musgrave - poet and wife of bank robber, Stephen Reid versus John K Samson - musician, publisher, and husband of musician, Christine Fellows. Whose judgement would you trust?
If Nelofer Pazira can keep her kindergarten-like bickering antics under control tomorrow, we could have quite the debate. If not, if could be a very interesting pissing war.
