I haven't been on for awhile and yes, if you're a FearNet O.G. then you know about the poem: "Mailman from Hell."
I think he's still afraid of me. The weather is now getting warmer (lol about as warm as it can get when you live in a f-ed up state). Anyways, when I was walking my cat on a leash, I told him "the cat is scared of people, any people, other than me, please don't approach me etc." Why does nobody listen? What if I was a leper or had swine flu? There are no special deliveries in this house, and if there were, it should be delivered by U.P.S. or otherwise left on the door-step.
A word to the wise, don't approach a cat that is on a leash. They get pissed, they only cooperate with their owners and God forbid there is a pesky bird, old-lady, mailman and for the love of all things holy; do not (I repeat) do not, bring children around. I myself, healed very quickly, when the cat attacked me (which it does outside when it is scared).
Cat's on a leash, is not what nature intended for these cuddly / soft but horrific creatures that live for the thrill of the hunt. Somehow though, the local county gov't and housing officials have decided that this was a good idea, to ticket people who have free-range-kitties in certain suburbs. Really, I could give a shit about that law. What I don't want, is for my cat to get rabies, run-over by a car, FIV or the herp. from some spastic mongoloid that may be passing through. I'd rather be in the backwoods.
It offends me that normal intelligent human beings, can't get a gov't job. But when you tell someone it would be good and best for the entire household, for someone who's on the timer of a job and actually has supervisors, to ultimately leave you alone because you have a scared animal with you, why is it then that they approach you? I don't mean to be rude, but I have no time for small talk, when I've got claws hanging off my breasts, and I'm trying to keep my cat from being murdered by ______(fill in the blank or on the street).... ok.
Does anyone else have this problem? I can understand old people not getting it (not getting the message right away) because they are at a distance when they approach you, and perhaps they can't hear so well, while your pealing a cat off your scalp because someone violated the "comfort zone," by coming too close.
