I Don’t Have a Problem

Day 14 : the challenge marches on. Today’s prompt: The Short Hairs

One could write about so many things with a prompt like The Short Hairs. A tight spot? A shaving accident? Maybe a game with lit matches that went horribly wrong (or hilariously right)?

Or maybe I can write about my cat (who happens to have short hair).

What, too obvious?

Well I’m taking the high road and I’m coming clean.

I’ve been moonlighting again, but you know, I’ll go pretty far sometimes to make a point.

Or maybe not far enough

What do you think?

Does the existence of my cat blog mean that my cat’s got me by the short hairs? Is that how that expression works?

Speaking of expressions, I guess the cat’s out of the bag now.

I still don’t think I have a problem.

  • That’s the thing about cats. They take over your mind!

  • Hey…if a guy can write a blog about text messages from his dog (which I am totally addicted to), then there is nothing wrong with your cat blog!!  =))

  • Seriously…Mike that is so cute I can’t hardly contain myself. I would say that I almost peed  myself at how funny (and let’s not forget cute) Whisker Patrol is but then it occurred to me that bladder control issues are normal at my age.

     The video that is supposed to be depressing is a riot.  I must have be totally wacked as far as my sense of humor.

    I have started a fan club for Dobson.  He totally deserves one for being so adorable. 

  • I still think you do. 🙂

  • I love your new cat blog.  Rosie would too, but he’s crashed across my left wrist as I type this.  Does Dobson help with the posts?
    It’s also a great take on today’s prompt.  

  • After looking at your cat blog, I think that I need therapy…no wait, I don’t like cats…this is all so confusing.

  • Oh my God. You’re obsessed, man. So, like, Dobson really did eat your post the other day?

    Hey Mike, no worse than my guinea pig blog,  We luvs our animals ~

  • Hi Nicky, Don’t you go disparaging cats over here.  I am working on your graphic and it contains guns….I woldn’t want to be feeling hostile while working on the Internet looking up gun sites.

  • A cat blog! That’s awesome. I would love to see the blog diary for a day. 

    12:00 am-4 a.m.: Sleep
    4 a.m.-5:30 a.m.: roam, look for food.
    5:30 a.m.: Wake up owner with non-stop meowing because I want food.
    5:40 a.m.: Eat.
    5:41 a.m. back to sleep



  • What? You have a cat blog too? ZOMFG!

  • Um … okay, I’m not gonna ask about the matches and hair thingy.  I don’t think I wanna know.  😉

    “Whisker Patrol”?  Sounds like something I’d be doing with tweezers on my chin and/or upper lip.  Cute blog, though!  Heh, heh.

    (Hey everybody beware:   CheesyMike drank the Kool-Aid.)


  • OMG!  You aren’t kidding!  Wow!  I have a new favorite blog!

  • Admitting you have a problem is half the battle.  Not admitting it…
    can only lead to catastrophe!

  •  Exactly! The blog was 100% his idea.

  • Ok, and the address to this awesome sounding blog is what?

  • Dobson helps as much as he can pose and be awesome for the camera, so yeah, I guess he does.

  • But you like cats more after looking at mine, right? RIGHT?

  • Yep, but I feel much lighter now that everyone knows. Cat blogs are too heavy to carry around on one’s conscience.

  • You know, I never thought about the guinea pig niche! I guess it’s less diluted than the cat niche, but yeah, pets need blogs too!

  • Yep! For all your Dobson needs, 24/7.

  •  Haha…That’s funny. Actually today was the first day in a long time that I had to get up super early. So early in fact, that I woke HIM up! Sucker. I finally got him back, that bastard.

  • Hahaha….well I didn’t totally go off the deep end. Yet. I’m still wading in the shallow waters (while wearing a duck shaped life preserver).

  • Thanks! 🙂 you should make it your homepage!

  • I may still end up institutionalized and catatonic.

  • Wow! Thanks Cheryl. I can’t get enough of the bulletin board haha!

    Oh yeah, that depressed cat Henri is something else. Brilliantly done actually .

  • Oh snap!

    It is hysterical!

    Oh, Dear God.

  •  This is by far, my favorite comment 🙂

  •  Oh man, that IS good. Instant classic 🙂
