StraussCat has been waiting for another chance to show how much he doesn’t care about English cricket. KP provided him with the perfect opportunity.

This is StraussCat when he first heard the news that Pietersen had resigned.

Have you heard the news?

When I told him that the only viable candidate was his namesake, he merely yawned and stretched a bit.

My new cat, Meowcus Trescattick, has proved disappointingly interested in cricket. He’s particularly interested in South African cricket, as this picture shows.

Catkind remains jealous of our opposable thumbs

When he heard the news about KP he tipped his waterbowl over in disgust, but I didn’t get a picture of that.


Mike Gatting wasn't receiving the King Cricket email when he dropped that ludicrously easy chance against India in 1993.


Why risk it when it's so easy to sign up?


  1. @Lemon Bella: Encouragingly, Struass the Cat seems also indifferent to the works of Joss Whedon. A moggy of taste.

    (that’s a disturbingly ordered DVD/video shelf you’ve got there)

  2. I’m just glad that Meowcus Trescattick has been found. Last I remember, he had gone walkabout?!

    He was obviously off to nets or he had to return from tour early, because of mentalism.

  3. Ne, it’s not a disturbingly ordered DVD shelf at all. That’s an entire shelf of Stargate DVDS, in season order. You’re one of those people who puts DVDs back in the wrong boxes, aren’t you?

  4. Yes, Meowcus Trescattick, returned after 3 weeks missing. I have no idea what he was doing during that time, he didn’t seem to want to talk about it.

  6. Do you have to anoint Meowcus’s ears with sunblock factor 100 a la cricketers when there is the faintest glimmer of sunshine – they are Ian Bell pink

  7. DVDs are kept in orderly piles at various points around the living room. Boxes are kept in separate piles.

  8. I too have many many Buffy videos. All because a mate once said “I’m getting rid of Buffy seasons 1-6 on VHS. Want them?”

    I’ve had them for 18 months, and I think I’m up to season 1 episode 6. It’s not as though I’ve not watched most of them already!

    I blame Jack Bauer. And Kevin Pietersen.

    Meowcus is a moggy of rare refinement and taste.

  9. I presume Trescat blamed it’s disappearance on a mystery bug picked up in the vicinity of some third-worldish areas….
