Pussy cat gets blamed for owners fetish

Posted Saturday, August 8, 2009, at 3:41 PM

Does he look that sinister?
Now I have seen it all, a Florida man blamed his cat for over 1000 images downloaded on his computer.

Keith Griffin is charged with 10 counts of child pornography after detectives found over 1000 images on his home computer.

Now when I was a kid we blamed the dog and cat for certain things, lamp breakage, passing gas and such but never pornograhic images.

My question is: is the cat gonna be charged with messing up a keyboard?

Does the dog get blamed for speeding if he is sitting in the drivers seat?

What about the hamster buying pay per view late at night while he is on his wheel?

I knew those sex phone charges were not mine, it is the parrot doing it all!!

Well, at least they don't have a Cheetos throwing Chimp in the mix.

Don't be too quick to exonerate the kitty.

Once,I left my p.c. to tend to something and returned to find one of my fur-babies at the desk and a message on the screen that I'd been kick/banned from the IRC room I was in for co-chanelling in one of those rooms with all the !!!!!!!'s in front of the room name.

(I was a bit stunned and appalled to say the least.)

As it happened,one of my IRC cop friends owned the room that tossed me and knew I'd been A(way) F(rom) K(eyboard) when this supposedly happened.

(He and a girlfriend came by early and unannounced to pick up her critters I'd been boarding.

My luck being what it is,I and my kitchen looked like roadkill.)

He told me about auto-invites and how to block them,got rid of my kick/ban then we all explained to my ginger tom that just because a room name SOUNDS like a place for felines doesn't mean it's a good place for little cats.

I wound up setting my list for places like #cherokee_nation,#tennessee and writing,gaming and media tie-in rooms.

NO #hotchat,#sweetyoungp_____y or even #garfieldfans,#hello_kitty_haven or #morris_dancers.

Since he was a neutered cat,I figure he accepted the auto-invite in perfect innocence.

But,the incident DID occur when there were no humans or grown critters there to provide supervision.

OMG that is funny. Now our cat Joe laid on my husbands laptop one night and cause it to open 20 or more web browsers....

Now my dog is not computer savvy, but when he's in my lap he will often attempt to catch the mouse on the screen.

Back when we had a cat, we came home one evening and the stereo was playing very loud. Evidently, the kitty had stepped on the stereo remote and accidently turned it on.

He was scared and hiding under the bed. If anyone had knocked on the door, they'd have swore we were at home.

I might believe one or two downloads, by a very smart cat. Get real! Anyone knows that a even the smartest cat can't stay focused, let alone awake, long enough to download more than ten.

My dog however, I wish she would quit ordering take out from Pizza Hut, every time I walk out and forget to shut down the laptop.

I keep telling the delivery guy that the dog is the culprit and I won't pay for it. He still makes me pay; but I am taking the next one out of her poker night fund.

Reminds me of a news story I saw on Channel 5 news one night. A man in McMinnville was arrested for a DUI. Here's how it went down:

Cop- "I pulled you over for weaving all over the road."

Driver- "That's 'cause my dog was driving."

Cop- "Your dog was driving?"

Driver- "That's what I was told."

Long story short, the driver was arrested for DUI,had his license suspended for a year and was told by the judge that his dog was not allowed to drive either.
