My cat Snickers goes in and out of the house through this window in our spare bedroom in order to avoid contact with my boyfriend's 40 lb Australian Cattle dog. This morning I woke up before dawn and went to this window to see if Snickers was out there. She was hanging out on the roof waiting for me to let her in.

As soon as I turned on the light it must have created an illusion that the window was already open. When she saw me she took a flying leap and smacked right into the glass of the closed window and fell about 10 feet to the ground. My poor, poor Snickers! She's all right though. I don't even think she used up one of her nine lives on it, but it was pretty traumatic for me to witness.

This is Snicker's new boyfriend. He looks strikingly like my missing cat, Tofutti. He's apparently not neutered and has the biggest balls I've ever seen on a cat! When I pointed this out to my boyfriend he proudly remarked that his own balls are even bigger.

We might end up adopting this cat if he keeps hanging around. He's extremely friendly. My boyfriend wants to name him "Jimmy Big Balls."

My boyfriend lovingly made this sign for Snicker's window, which I climbed out onto the roof to photograph.

very literate snickers you have there. the sign should do the trick. ;D

i like your boyfriend's name for the other one. it would be great for his feline self-esteem. ^.^

...do i see him leaning slightly off to the side in the picture? is he resting on his rear legs, or what? =D

Yeah, that's Snickers off to the side in the last picture. She's on the slope of the roof with her head pointed toward the window.

your fiancee is right
Jimmy Big Balls is perfect for a cat. But of course if you decide to neuter him the name could be a problem. No one wants to be reminded of faded glory. Name him Thor. That implies enough.

Re: your fiancee is right

Yea, that happened to me once when I was dating your mother. I was in down town Omaha with some buddies from the base, we had been drinking, a little, when I saw your mom there on Dodge street. I went running to her just like in those slow motion scenes you see in old movies, only fast, and ran right into the plate glass window of a down town department store. Boy did that hurt the next day. That was back when the store mannequins looked like real people. I sure miss down town department stores, don't you?

What are these downtown department stores you speak of? I know only of strip malls and amazon dot com.
