Fixed (A Shaggy Cat Story)

Category: Rated G

From Harold Clark Via My Spice , this was published on the groaners listserv. The author is not known. This is especially dedicated to the academicians on my mailing list, but not me, of course.


A family owned a tomcat, of whom it was normally quite fond.

Quite often, however, the cat would get out at night and go around the neighbourhood howling and screeching and meowing so loudly that people would complain. So the family took the tom to a vet and had him fixed.

A few nights later, though, the cat was out again, and this time he was making even more noise than usual. Not only that, but a lot of other cats were howling and yelling, too.

The father of the house went out to see what was going on. He caught the cat’s attention and asked, “What are you doing? You’re supposed to be over all this.”

“Oh,” replied the cat, “He who can, DOES; he who cannot, TEACHES.”
