View Full Version : Amusing cat story

This is a true story. My youngest cat, Mickey, likes Rogue Squadron on Nintendo...not the game itself, but the code section.

http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/confused.gif

Whenever I plug in the game and go to the code screen, he comes running from wherever he is in the house and sits down right in front of the teevee. When I scroll through the letters, he bats at them. I think that it's the unique 'boingy' sound that the letters make which catch his attention, and he notices that it coincides with the spinning letters on the screen.

Mickey never pays attention to anything else on teevee...just that one code screen. The direct audiovisual association of the neat sound and spinning letters make for a miniature "bat 'em" videogame, just simple enough for a cat's limited attention span.

My plan is to work him up to harder and harder games, until I can train him as a TIE fighter pilot that I can send online to zap you little b***hes into sparkly stardust. Mu-haw-haw-haw. I can't wait for my evil plans to come to fruition!

Perhaps it uses the fur to perambulate, much like an amoeba using cilia. Put it on the floor and observe it for a period of time.

Update: I just got Battle for Naboo today, and Mickey is fascinated by the code screen for that game as well...even though it looks different and makes a 'click' sound which should be of less interest to a cat. I guess he's just a Star Wars crazy kitty-cat, who can't wait to get into aerial combat of his own. When the Admiral kicked him out the airlock, he got his first taste of outer space...and I had a heck of a time getting him back in! http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/biggrin.gif

On another note; I finished Battle of Naboo today, less than twelve hours after I'd bought it. So don't mess with me, unless you've thought ahead to remove the blaster cannon from all the ground speeders! http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/rolleyes.gif The irony of spending Martin Luther King's birthday engaged in armed civil disobedience has not escaped me.

I forget who wrote 'em or what they were called, but there were a series of books about a species of intelligent cats called the Kzin who killed humans in space. Bad, bad kitties those.

You might want to read about them before you send Mickey into anything as random-timeline-generating as a black hole...!

The Kzinti, yes, quite real. You see, I've just been to the future and come back in time with a division of Kzinti shock troops.

*A Federation Galaxy-class starship drops into position abaft of the SSD. Surprise; it is under control of Kzinti commandoes! They blast the SSD's aft stations to cinders while simultaneously beaming Mickey to safety and armed boarding teams aboard the doomed imperial ship. The fiercest Kzinti warriors, enormous psychotic jungle demons with blood-matted fur, armed only with rusty machetes, materialize on the bridge and immediately slay any creature ranked higher than a boatswain's mate. The SSD is forced to zero velocity, and all the kitties beam back to their pirate starship before anti-matter charges destroy the star destroyer quite prettily.*
