The cat who was allergic to cats.

My brother-in-law and his wife were the proud owners of two cats, Bink (black cat)and Floyd (orange tabby). Bink was pretty mellow but Floyd seemed to suffer from an allergy problem. He sneezed. A Lot! It got to the point where we all learned to talk in code. For example, you never said "Hey, Floyd hasn't sneezed in a while. He must be better?" or Floyd would suffer an allergy attack before you finished the sentence. So we spoke in code; "Hey, you know who hasn't you know what." or our favorite, "ixnay on the ooxnay." Well, you get the idea. My sister-in-law says Floyd was covered in dirt and snot when they found him under their front porch. She said she should have known.I've often wondered why Floyd sneezed, perhaps he was allergic to cats. Hmm...


  1. I'll assume that you intentionally left out the gorey details regarding the "content" of Floyd's sneezes so as not to deter potential followers of your blog. Probably a wise decision on your part!

  2. I did mention that he was covered in snot when you found him...
