Once again, it was a lovely number of really wonderful comments. I had so many that I wanted to put up. Zevo Calamari told me she had been proposed to by a goat. Kimo and Sabi points out that there must a lot of lonely people. Luxor, astute as always wondered how so many people knew about my adorable feet! Ah me.
Still, it was Aloysius who got the best quote
My nemesis, Darcy, married two humansâ€“but goats? Thatâ€™s disgusting. But it could be worse: judging by the number of google hits I get, many humans are obsessed with ants in the dishwasher.
I am curious about the ants in the dishwasher. I want to know why on earth humans would want to read about that and why they come to Aloysius’ blog?
Besides that, he has photos of some raccoons who came to visit him. Last evening before settling in to blog today’s post, we looked out and saw a family of four raccoons running through our yard. It was quite exciting!
As for who asked how I know this, I use a wordpress plugin called referrer and it allows me to see what search phrases people are using. I believe you can do this with sitemeter too, but this may be something you have to pay them for to get.
Hooray for Aloysius! And I just went to see those raccoons… scary!
Great comment – but yuk – ants in the dishwasher???
Lynn Hambley says
I agree with, woo-hoo for Alosius! Beans are just strange. I’m sure that the only phrase to reach my blog is “Most Handsomest Mancat Of All.”
Nope, you don’t have to pay for sitemeter to get your search phrases. I explained how to do it in one of my previous posts, where I did a list of what search phrases people used to find my blog.
Great choice of guest star, as usual!

Hooray for Aloysius! I like his comment. I think people must be looking for ways to get ants out of the dishwasher, but it’s funny that they end up at his site.

Pssst, Chey, Zevo Calamari pointed out this week that she’s a She. That’s the truble wif the internets; can’t sniff tails fur proper identification.
Mom had ants in the dishwasher once. Her roommate was consurfin water by not rinsin dishes afore puttin them in AND only runnin full loads. So reely dirty dishes sat fur days an the ants came marchin 1 by 1, hurrah, hurrah, the ants came marchin 1 by 1, hurrah, hurrah.

This is terrible, ants in the dishwasher. ewie…
You did as always have some great answers, and certainly difficult to pick just one!
I’m glad everyone liked my comment. About the ants: my humans had ants in their dishwasher, and so my female human, amanuensis, posted about it one Tuesday. On Tuesdays she gets to write on the blog, since Tuesday is my day to simply be a cat.
As for how the ants got in there, we think maybe they were living in the crawl space in the house and came in through a crack in the wall. It seems like this happens a lot, but there is a poison humans use that ants like to eat, and they take it back to their nest and feed it to the others.

We get raccoons too, but our photographer (Mom) has never managed to capture them digitally. (I guess you can’t use the phrase “on film” anymore.)
Chey, did you see that we had to pose in a REAL pink wig? Not the Photoshop one. It was horrible and we both closed our eyes in the hopes that we would not be recognized. Mom has some silly accessories for Halloween costume and we’re glad they’re not our size.
