Effing Feline spreads tuna fish

I, Effing Feline, am washing myself. Ed gave me the remnants of his tuna sandwich, and I love tuna.  Now I’m washing myself to spread the glorious aroma all over my body.

Effing Feline’s ears are ringing

I, Effing Feline, still like Cousin Lee … but he’s been here too hissing long. If he gets to the food bowl before I do, there’s nothing left for me. He broke my cat climber by leaping to the top level. Yesterday we were playing with a catnip mouse, and when I actually got it from […]

My version is set on an inhospitable moon, rather than the African Jungle, but in both tales the hero and heroine battle nature and, ultimately, the invading enemy. How did I use the movie to inspire a science […]
