When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro. - Hunter S. Thompson

Try always to blend in to your surroundings

Mister Gato is a very efficient little predator, equipped by Nature to move quickly (and almost silently) and kill with teeth and claws.

(Now that he's largely done away with the building's indigenous rodent population, thank God the Chows have a good sense of humor about being attacked randomly.)

He is also, of course, outfitted with a coat that is as sophisticated a system of visual camouflage as anything the Army's haberdashers could dream up. Note how well he blends in to the visual chaos of our desk, guarding our home desktop machine from the depredations of the dreaded CPU Mice (see also):

Tiger stripes are excellent camouflage in almost any setting.
Please do not be lulled into a false sense of security by my attitude of repose.

Be sure to check the Friday Ark at The Modulator for more furry (and feathered, and scaly) friends, and the April Fools' Day edition of the Carnival of the Cats this Sunday at IMAO.
