Karl


Here is Karl on his throne, which is quite fitting, as he is the King of his home.  He has graciously consented to share his home with his Maid and Butler and Mrs. Hissy Ohnezahne and Emil.  He is an indoor/outdoor cat living in the Sonaran desert in Arizona, which is why he always wears sunglasses.  It's a good thing he can go outside, too, because he refuses to use an indoor litterbox.  There are some bad things about being outside where he lives, as well, like being chased by a bobcat a couple of times, but he made it home safely both times.  Karl came to live with the Maid and Butler on October 9, 2004 after being a feral cat and he is very glad of the change.  He still likes to go out hunting, though, and he is very good at it.  He likes to run past the Butler, very fast, with his catch, but he has to be quick, or the Butler will take it away from him.  Karl is very brave and even chased away some javelinas (very nasty-tempered members of the pig family) from his house once with a can of Mao and Rocky's Vishus Deer Repellent.  Karl is also a talented writer and did the script for the CCSI episode The Santa Caper. I think he still misses Anastasia quite a lot.  She was the first cat he lived with, but she went out to the desert one day  and never came back.  Karl is a gay cat and recently found a boyfriend, Ruis.  They are having a really good time together, even going on a cruise to Antarctica.

                                  Karl is a cat of many talents.
                                  He goes far beyond poise and balance.
                                           He did a writing gig
                                           And chased a nasty pig.
                                  He does it all with a flair and nonchalance.

How is that possibly a real cat? Wendell would be trying to eat the sunglasses, scratching the chair, and have his butt towards the camera. Some cats just aren't photogenic, I guess.

I've often wondered if my cat Thompson is gay. Now that I know such a thing is possible via Karl, I may have to ask Thompson.
