I had to help put a run-over cat out of its misery this lunchtime...:(

That's just one of the many reasons we 'mericans believe strongly in the right to own a gun. Or two.

Damn. :(

I'd say after 5pm.

MoSe

don't worry: here you can find all the copy cats you want

As far as admissions of incompetence go, needing two guns to kill a half-dead cat is pretty much the winner.

Meow!:lol:

To clarify: Ms MOBIUS found it on the front porch with what looked like a broken back, so I came home and drove it to the PDSA hospital - they'll run tests but most likely put it down. We have to call back at 5pm... It was a cute B&W too... :(

First gun might jam. You can't be too confident in these situations.

MOBIUS
03-04-2009, 15:45:33
Surely if you haven't maintained it well enough so that it jams, that's also incompetence?

Provost Harrison

You always wanted to kill the fat cats. Well you came close, you got to kill a flat cat ;)

Cheap chinese knock-offs.

MOBIUS

Incompetent choice of supplier?

Funko
03-04-2009, 16:01:00
If the gun jams you can still pistol whip the cat to death?

Funko
03-04-2009, 16:01:46
Or a Bayonette. I mean, come on people.

MOBIUS
03-04-2009, 16:07:11
Shouting "Die Hun!" - or is that optional?

Lurker
03-04-2009, 16:21:42
Damn, I forgot about the bayonets!

How can you ever forget the bayonets. :(

I wanted a bayonet as a child.

Similar to me the other day in Asda. I wanted to bayonet a child :lol:

Poor pussy. :(

I remember once at work there was a small ringtail possum that looked like one of its hind legs had been run over (probably by a bus, but could have been one of the work utes).

Everyone was standing around doing jack shit and talking about whether it was going to die or not. I grabbed a small box and a small towel off the admin staff, put it in and took it up to see a vet.

Poor thing lasted right up until I took it into see the vet, then it died. :(

Turd

Did it really poop when it died?

MOBIUS

Oh yeah, there was an update I forgot to mention from Saturday when we called for news:

Apparently the owner called about an hour after we brought the cat in, so at least it was reunited with its owner. Also it did well overnight under observation, so if it continued to do OK they were going to operate on it yesterday to treat it for a fractured pelvis. Ms MOBIUS will be calling today to see what has happened - hopefully this story will have a happy ending!:)

Funko
07-04-2009, 10:53:01
Wait, so you didn't kill it?

MOBIUS
07-04-2009, 10:56:19
No. I thought it was too far gone to survive, so I assumed that by taking it to the PDSA it was by extension a mercy killing...

MDA
07-04-2009, 11:04:08
should have taken it to NHS then!

Funko
07-04-2009, 11:08:19
When you said you aided putting it out of your misery I assumed you battered it with a spade or something.

MoSe
07-04-2009, 11:17:08
- oh dear, I ran over a cat!
- have mercy, engage the reverse...

LOL it just came natural to me

I would like to say that's where I learned english, but I actually learned it by listening to '70s Genesis music

Proof the welsh need to relax their gun control laws.

yeah but i don't think i'd be brave enough to strangle a cat.

protein

there has to be a joke there.

Funko
07-04-2009, 12:21:09
I'd definitely whack it with a spade.

protein

MOBIUS

I once hefted a big rock onto a dying pigeon that had had its eyes pecked out by ravens. I imagine I would do the same with a cat, if need be.

MoSe
07-04-2009, 12:24:53
A spade? I wouldn't have the heart, I'd rather use a club

MOBIUS
07-04-2009, 12:27:12
I guess a large enough diamond would be too expensive - therefore not very suit-able...

What a pair of jokers.

Lurker
07-04-2009, 12:31:40
A club makes sense. I think a 5 iron would work, but if it's a big enough cat, perhaps you'd need a 3 wood. I can't ever imagine needing a driver.

sorry two-guns, your credibility is already shot

MOBIUS
07-04-2009, 13:13:09
Long story shot?

MoSe
07-04-2009, 13:20:37
what about a diamond-cutter?
