Ziggy - cat traveler

They say cats have nine lives. According to that, cat named Ziggy probably have eight lives now after his strange voyage. This cat traveled from northern Israel to Britain (England precisely) without taking any food or water. The trip was 2,300 miles (3900 kilometers) long. October 31 in Haifa, Israel, cat Ziggy wandered into a consignment of plastic goods in some boat. 17 days later, when ship arrived in England, cat appeared at a warehouse in Whitworth in Lancashire. He was emerged, exhausted, starving and dehydrated, but he jumped from box and resist capture from warehouse workers for five hours.

Funny cat joke (letter)

Dear Master:
The cat is despicable. She doesn’t do any tricks and never comes when you call and I’ve been there and I know she can hear you. We need to face the facts:
It’s time to get rid of the cat.
Before the cat’s arrival, meals were very festive times. I would sit and
stare attentively at your lips, trembling slightly and drooling. You would
play the game of pretending to be cross and demand that I leave the area, but whenever you cooked dinner your children would slip me food under the table.
Now, though, the cat is allowed to jump on the table - actually physically
walk on the table! You don’t yell at the cat, you just pick her up and put
her back on the floor, and I know you don’t see it, but she always gives me a haughty look as she walks past me.
And speaking of meals, I have always been satisfied to eat the gritty
pellets of meat by-products you bring home in the giant bags, right? Have I ever once, ever, failed to finish a meal? But now I find out that the cat is
being served lobster and salmon and crab - and she never consumes all of it! This means there are little containers of delectable snacks lying around and how can I be blamed for making sure they get eaten? Why do you get so mad?
As long as the pet food is going to the pets, isn’t that what’s important?
Speaking of sanitation, do you realize that the cat goes to the bathroom in
the house? And not in the drinking basins like you do, but in a sandbox in
the basement. What are we going to say if some woman brings her baby over to play in the sandbox and the cat has been using it as a toilet? I used to police the thing for you, but you put it up out of my reach for some reason.
I’m not the only one who believes the cat is an evil person. Here’s a note
from the hamster:

Subject: Cat
Please tell cat to stop staring at me while I work.

I also tried to get a note from the fish, but apparently it believes that
everything happening outside its bowl is some kind of reality - TV show.
I don’t understand why the cat is allowed up on the bed and I’m not. I am
far more cuddly than any stupid cat. I think her purring sounds unhealthy
and may be a sign of tuberculosis.
And why doesn’t she ever get a bath? She smells like saliva from licking her paws - you’d never catch me licking such ridiculous places. I often smell wonderful from rolling in road kill, yet you give me baths all the time.
And speaking of sleeping, sometimes I’ll be taking a nap and she’ll come
right up and lie down beside me. Usually I’m too tired to do anything about it, but then later the other dogs smell her on me and crack a lot of jokes at my expense.
So, not to exaggerate, but the cat has brought the family to complete ruin.
I’m sorry I have to be the one to bring it to your attention, but now that I
have, I think we can all agree that we should go back to the way it was,
when I was the #1 pet.

Funny cat signs

werd cat sign
Take care - cat sign
On this bridge, there is a sign with cat and title "Take care". Hmmm. Some dangerous cats around, I suppose. :) Ca is black but don't look like a panther to me. Who knows? Genetics makes wonder these days. LOL

slow - deaf cat
Slow - deaf cat
Sad. Deaf cat is on the road. Maybe. She walks thru the park and sometimes she goes to the road, too. So, if you drive there, pleas slow down and be careful. That cat can see you but can't hear you if she is in front of your car.

subway cat funny sign
Japanese cat sign
I doubt someone can tell for shore what this sign means. Of course, if you know Japanese you can tell, but for us rest, ... It's on Tokyo subway. So, lets guess. Electric cat around? Advertising for electric cats, maybe you want to buy one? Or, if you entering subway with your cat, watch her tail. You don't want doors cut off it. Yeah, that makes sense. And maybe it's for some children TV show with cat main character? Hmmm...

wack cat and fish
Cat and fish sign
Don't feed the cat with fish from this river. They are full of chemicals. ;) Could be that. Or, sign for cats: Don't eat the fish. We take care of them here. But yeah, there is a human hand. And fish in it. So it's probably first solution.
