The Cat And The Mad Lobster This is a humorous true story about our 18 year old cat who died of a brain tumor. He was unusual inasmuch as he had learned to play dead and together he and I had a routine.

First, however, the cat had an encounter with a lobster. On a summers day a number of years ago, my wife and I were going to have an old fashioned New England clambake. Just the two of us. We purchased a lobster and two quarts of steamers and the placed the bag in the foor space under the dash on my wife's side of the car.

At a traffic light I rattled the bag and the lobster came alive and hopped out of the bag. At a local convenience store parking lot, I was able to get the lobster back into the bag and this time into a cooler we had in the trunk.

When we got home, I filled the kitchen sink with cool water and placed the lobster and clams into it until we were ready to cook.

My wife and I were enjoying a drink and watching the cooking shows on public TV and all of a sudden were startled by the loud MEOW - and WEEEOW of the cat. It had jumped up onto the kirchen counter and was slapping the crustacean with its paw.

One of the rubber bands holding a claw secure came un-done and the lobster was fighting for its life.

I was able to get the lobster into a pot of tepid water and did not realize that as the water heated up the lobster would try to escape. Back to the TV when all of a sudden the lobster kicked the cover off and onto the floor with a loud bang. The cat ran in the opposite direction and I spent the next ten minutes pressing the cover onto the pot with a hand towel until the lobster was no longer kicking.

This short true story has a series of adventures with our cats over the years. Hope you enjoy!

    I didn't really get this book. I think the guy who wrote it was trying to be funny but failed dramatically. The way he recounted the stories was unclear and if he is gonna write short stories then why doesn't he save them and put them in a big book?
  • Nice and sweet
