Feline Succession

Recently, after the spare (formerly main) cat went missing for more than a week, she was demoted to spare cat status, while the spare (now main) cat was promoted. But as of this afternoon, the main (formerly spare) cat has been unheard-from for six days, putting the spare cat within 24 hours of reclaiming her throne. Needless to say, if you happen to see him out and about, doing whatever it is that cats do, please bring him by the offices, where our receptionist will give you your reward.

The perro doesn't seem to give a shit how this turns out, of course.

I knew there was a reason why I liked you...I'm a three oliver myself.
Great photo!

^^^^^^^^^^
It's obvious the Three Olive Martini is for the dog, who is celebrating the disapperance of the cat.

Once the Perro sobers up he'll start having some regrets.

BTW, didn't you get the chicken wire in place in time?

What, and run afoul of INAH?

you could mount the neon burro on top of the chicken wire confabulation.

judging from the other story about the lighting of the aqueduct, you might have a goodly amount of time before INAH got around to you.

until then, the spare/main and main/spare editorial staff members would be forced to stay home and work on their assignments. the light from neon burro would allow them to work at night, too.

Is that a faded tatoo of an anchor I see below the perro's fur on one of his front legs?

Hey, I wouldn't worry about the perro's tattoo...I think Frank had better check the cat over when it returns after marking the neighborhood and hangin' with the homies.

Viva pugs!

has spare/main/main/spare returned yet?
worrying from afar...even if perro is lapping up Bombay Sapphire with 3 or more olives and doesn't care.

actually i think he's drinking because he feels inconsolable over the absence of spare/main etc. he looks like a pug de todo corazon.

Nope. Today (Monday) is his 11th day on the lam. Probably halfway to Arizona by now...
