I have a cat named Ramses. I love cats because they're so self-sufficient. As long as I continue to provide him with food and water, he will continue to love me in nice, even doses when it's convenient for him. Cats are a lot like people and I appreciate that.

Ramses, however, is about as smart as bronzed horseshit sometimes. The desk which houses my pathetic computer is next to the window of what I alternately refer to as an office or study (depends on what I'm reading at the time). This window looks out onto the balcony of my second floor apartment, from which the view of the outside world looks squarely at the wall of an adjacent apartment building. Still, Ramses likes to go out there and look at the neighborhood strays who pass by or bugs or whatever it is a cat can stare at for an hour. When he wants to come back inside, he stands at the balcony door and meows. It's a good system and we like it.

When I'm at the computer, typing away, he stands on a chair by the window and paws at it, meowing to get my attention. So, why is he such an idiot? I leave the door open all winter long. He's been getting my attention to let him in for the last four months with an open door that he could just walk through at any time without my involvement.

Damn my camera's default flash position... I'll try later to get a better photo

If he wasn't so damned adorable, I'd probably perform a mercy killing.
