A Rosie Vagina, a Corpsey Cat and a Grateful Puppy.

Well we saved another puppy.  

This time we saved a puppy from the dead cat that was holding it hostage. Well, I guess technically that’s not an accurate statement since to hold something hostage you need to want something in return. And the dead cat didn’t really seem to want anything. Hostage holding also seems like it is a kind of assertive position while being dead implicitly implies passivity. I guess it would be more accurate to say that the dead cat was playing more of a victim role and was being passive aggressive with the puppy, effectively trapping it in an unhealthy relationship.  

A passive aggressive dead cat.


I had just come back down the mountain from my morning jog when I saw the town stoner Tom standing at the big water fountain by the soccer field. Tom is a Welsh guy somewhere between 45 and 120 years old. He is around 6’2 when fully erect which is never. His ‘walking around posture’ sets him at around 4’8. Although I don’t have anything in common with him, he is great for a laugh and I love him like a Yoda.  

Immediately upon seeing me he stopped what he was doing (I’m not sure what that was but it did involve him staring intently at his feet) and tried to get my attention by waving his right arm in what looked to me to be a Hokey Pokey flashbacky gesture. As I sidled next to him to get a gulp of water I could tell that he was either excited or agitated by the way his pupils kept trying to focus.  

An aggressive dead cat.

“Hear that did you?” he asked.  

“No” I replied.  

“Keening, worling, yealking nippler night last I heard!” He went on, “Spooky it was.” As I was considering how I was going to ‘talk him down’ I heard it too, and god damn if it didn’t sound like a fucking worling, yealking nippler. We walked over to a long abandoned Peugeot with 4 flat tires and I could already smell what I assumed to be Rosie O’Donnell’s vagina.   

You can imagine my relief to find that it was only a very dead cat.  

I love cats but I’ll take a dead cat over an irritated and hungry vagina any day. In my exuberance over finding the source of the odor I almost forgot to consider what had made the worling, yealking nippler. As I realized that the dead cat couldn’t talk I begun to fear the angry Irishwoman’s anatomy once again. So I carefully got down on my hands and knees to better look under the car, and I saw a beautiful, healthy (physically anyway, emotionally.. not so much) puppy.  

I tried to coax her out, but she just wanted to lie and cuddle with her friend, Corpsey Cat. As I tried to reach under the car to grab her she climbed up into the engine compartment. Then I knew I needed help.  

I shouldn’t really have written that. I’m sure that her vagina smells like rainbows and pixie dust.

I left Tom who was once again staring contentedly at his feet and ran home to get my wife who I calmly asked, “Oh my God you have to help me there is a cute little puppy and a dead fucking cat under a broken car and Tom heard it worling, yealking and nipplering all night last night and nobody did anything so we have to get it out of there or it’s going to fucking die because now it’s in the hood and it’s probably really hot and oily and it may be drinking antifreeze or something right now so oh my God you have to help me right now, OK?!” 

We spent the next day and a half trying to bribe, threaten, scare, beg and plead to get that puppy away from the dead cat and out from under the Peugeot to no avail. Every time we neared she just climbed back up into the empty hood. (We found out that the engine was long missing.) We knew that we needed more help.  

Finally we called a mechanic who lives in our village to see if he would come and do some mechanic-y stuff to open the hood so we could extract the puppy. He did meet us at the scene but since it was someone else’s vehicle, abandoned or not, he was unwilling to break into it. But he did agree to help.  

He did what I believe mechanics do the world over once they are alone in their garages of greasy iniquity and he banged on the hood with his fists, while my wife laid on the ground (right next to Feline MacRotten) and snatched the scurrying, frightened puppy when she jumped down.  

We bundled the puppy up and brought her home and I scrubbed her with a vigilance that would make an OCD sufferer proud. And would probably make them want to wash their hands and flip a lightswitch 17 times as well. The first few hours Puppy seemed to miss Corpsey Cat but after she began to play with our dog and cat she seemed to adjust just fine. Now we simply have to find her a good home before we become too attached. Ahem.  


I do have to learn that mechanic-y bangy trick though. It would be a lucrative source for extra income supplementing my nothing else.  

Just to keep you informed; the cat is still dead. I think he’s waiting for Rosie’s vagina to come hang out.

Super Important Update; I’m going to switch this blog over into the evil dot.com world (of which I know nothing) very shortly, and I need a name. As you can see by the name of this blog, I suck ass at making the big decisions. So if you guys can give me any suggestions at all, preferably based on my writing or style, I’d make it up to you in way that you couldn’t even fantasize (mostly because I haven’t thought of it yet) about. But I’ll make it up to you in a fantasy worthy kind of way. Probably.

  1. Scott,

    “Corpsey cat” and “MacRotten”? lol….I just love those descriptions. And I’m sure glad that at the end of the story, you confirmed that “corpsey cat” was really dead, by stating, “The cat is still dead”. I was really wondering if it might, per chance miraculously come back to life. Especially since Spain has mysterious life-longevity elements (which needs to be investigated by the way).

    Since your life seems so “abnormal” and bizarre (by my standards), I’m thinking you need to do a blog about, “A day in the life of Zodi”, just so we can get the feel for your typical day (as they do seem to be very interesting).

    Just a thought,

    • I’m glad you can appreciate my famous ability to appoint nicknames. I’m like Sawyer from Lost only I was doing it first. I thought I’d revisit the cat just to give you guys a chance to pay your last respects and all. I know how attached one can get.

      I love your idea Trish but the truth is my average days or pretty boring. But when stuff happens it REALLY happens. I just saved a stray dog from a poisoning last night by dumbing soapy water and olive oil down its throat for 3 hours. She survived, her sister didn’t.

      Thanks Trish!!

  2. That puppy is adorable!

    “I left Tom who was once again staring contentedly at his feet and ran home to get my wife who I calmly asked, “Oh my God you have to help me there is a cute little puppy and a dead fucking cat under a broken car and Tom heard it worling, yealking and nipplering all night last night and nobody did anything so we have to get it out of there or it’s going to fucking die because now it’s in the hood and it’s probably really hot and oily and it may be drinking antifreeze or something right now so oh my God you have to help me right now, OK?!”

    I wish I could be calm like that. Impressive.

  3. Aw! Puppy! Find a home for the puppy? Yeah, right. Looks like she already has one. Ya big softie.
    And did you have to post that pic of Rosie? That thing skeeves me out something terrible. I’d much rather look at the dead cat.

    Moving your blog to the big time, eh? A blog name is a very personal thing, but my suggestion would be “I Know Nothing About Farming.” No?

    • I am a huge softie when it comes to animals. I like them more than people most of the time. But we just can’t keep that one. We already picked up a cat in Spain which we are keeping. We’re moving back to Florida within a year and it is over a grand an animal. So you can see why we need to find her a home.

      I’ll Fed-Ex her to your house!

      • Aww come on, Scot! That face is worth a grand, and think how awful it was for him to lose his Kitty friend. Now that was the really upsetting thing, he must have loved her. Your wife must be a wonderful person to have gone under a car at eye level with Dead Cat to get that puppy w/o hesitation.

        I hope you can keep him or find him a loving home. I felt guilty for laughing at Dead Cat, but you’re just so hilarious.

          Zodi is a weird story. I had an Italian uncle who barely spoke any English nickname me Zodi and if he ever told anybody why they soon forgot. It did stick and over the years I was known around the neighborhood as Zodi, Z, Zodikiller, and much later Zodilander.

          Great job with the names too!

  5. I feel bad for that dead little kitty. Well, not really because I’m not a cat person. But, I thought I would say that cause, saying things like that always impresses the babes.

    I’ve thought about doing the .com thing myself, but keep being stopped because I can’t come up with a decent name for a blog either.

    • I feel really bad for Corpsey Cat too. But I’m not just saying that because the chicks dig it I’m saying that because I dig kittehs more than I dig most chicks. Or dudes.

      If I could have killed an AM talk show host to bring the kitteh back to life I would have.

      We need to put our heads together and help each other. I’m way better when it’s not my own stuff I’m trying to name.

Thank Christ I have an empty stomach right now. Major thank-you for saving that adorable pup, and I mean friggin’ ADORABLE. As for a domain name, hmmmmmmm. “OCD Me” or . . . no.

  8. Corpsey Cat?! Haha yeah I can see the resemblance… and no- I’ve never actually seen the vagina of Rosie but I have a pretty active imagination. And thanks by the way Scott, for the lovely mental image. How many shots of tequila will I have to drink to get rid of this?
    That’s it, you can name your blog ‘tequila’ 🙂

    • An overly active imagination does seem to be the curse of the writer Lua. I remember how freaked out I used to become as a child when imagining my aunts’ vaginas…totally kidding, really. I was damnit!

      Tequila would have been perfect but I don’t drink. How about opiate drip? Doesn’t have the same ring to it does it?

        In that case, ‘My Life as a Fish’ could be a fun sub-title at least. Then you could have different logos/avatars: your face on a cute little ‘Finding Nemo’ type fish for fun, benign comments; then on an impressive shark for some fierce angry posts; and, when you want to be really nasty, maybe you could be a Stingray with a Steve Irwin tattoo. Oops, someone must have let ‘Bad Karen’ out of the box. I’ll put her away.

          A stingray with an Irwin tattoo is such a bad ass idea that I might have to get a tattoo of a stingray that has an Irwin tattoo!

  18. Amazing how on the same day we post about vaginas, although a dead cat that looks like Rosie’s vagina sounds way cooler than Bourne with a vagina. My one question to you would be, “Where the fuck did you ever see Rosies?”

    A friend of mine started a road kill calendar one time. Sounds like Corpsey cat would rate, oh, say, November?

Jason Bourne’s vagina is not only 10 times cooler than Rosie’s vagina but Bourne’s vagina can kill Rosie’s vagina 10 different ways with a fountain pen. And still escape the country afterwards. That is one talented vagina.

      Sadly I think my blog title will be 100% vagina free. Sadly.

    • That’s only slightly better than having to think of a dead cat every time I see Rosie’s vagina so I guess it’s a push.

      Spanish Inquisition is a damn cool name. I’m not sure it works for my blog but it would work for something. And I’m going to figure out what!

      Thanks Loon!!

  21. Poor Corpsey Cat! Adorable new puppy you have there 😉 Warn us when you use that photo of Rosie, it scares me!

  22. Ah, the long awaited dead cat rescue puppy story, who knew it would come with a bonus smelly vagina?!
    Town stoner Tom sure sounds like a character you could do well to exploit more from, so long as he does more than stare at his feet and do Hokey Pokey flashbacky gestures….

    Anyway – how bout: Zodiology (like astrology, but better)

    • If by long you mean ‘about a week’ this was long awaited. You can see how quickly I’m running out of material over here. I may need to become more involved in Tom’s life soon.

      I really love that name as well!

      Thanks Ruby!!

      • Oh I must have confused this with some other promise of ‘pet rescue’ story from a little while ago…I cant remember from which post now…

        • It’s pretty damn easy to confuse my posts. And my days. Sometimes my wives. I kid I kid.

  23. fuckingbrilliantbastard.com?
    jay wouldn’t mind

    probably suggests porn – not that there’s anything wrong with that


    yes, I have a crush on you 🙂

    this is off the top of my tormented infected head

    good on you babe

    • You came up with some doozies(?) for me there Dianne. A porn sounding name would certainly bring the stats coming in. I guess it would also bring some entertaining advertising opportunities.

      Great job!

      And don’t worry; your crush is reciprocated.

      Thanks Dianne!!

  24. HA!!

    The fact that you can assume what Rosie O’Donnell’s vagina would smell like makes me laugh. But not a jovial laugh, more like a “please give me a lobotomy NOW because I can’t get the horrifying visual out of my mind” kind of laugh.

    (It’s hard to describe, but it’s got a lower pitch.)

    This story is unbelievable, Scott. The fact that the puppy wouldn’t leave the cat makes me feel like crying. I have this weird thing about animals who defy the odds of animal relations and end up becoming bosom buddies.

    I’m going to go cry myself to sleep now. But I want you to know you’re a hero.

    Ps. I’ll get back to you with some blog names.

    pps. Is Tom single? He sounds hot.

    • Oh my God I could hear that lower pitched laugh. I’m not sure if that was because you’re my doppelganger and I ‘feel your pain’ or if it’s because I’m apeshit psychotic, but I heard a laughing that sounded like mental suicide.

      I know, right? But you’d think that her natural instinct would have told her to not befriend a dead anything. I think that yet another animal in my life is slightly retarded. I know you must have seen this, but if not….. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cjyb0t5Jm44

      Surprisingly Tom has had an unfortunate love life. He was abused in an earlier marriage (true story!) and now he lives with an Englishwoman who outweighs him by a good hundred pounds and is an alcoholic. I pray for his safety.

      Thanks B!!

  25. Do you now consider yourself a dead pussy magnet?

    The puppy is pretty cute.

    Hopefully you arne’t housing all of the animals you find, or I’m signing your ass up for hoarders.

    • I’ve always been a dead pussy magnet. I used to date Kate Moss back in her junk days.

      The puppy is the only one of the animals (other than my cat) that we’ve saved that has made it into the house. And I fucking hate clutter…

      Thanks Candice!!

    • I might be able to use thedailymethlab.com for selling my wares. In case you didn’t know; wares means meth in that last sentence.

      I cook meth. Every day.

      Thanks Lisa!!

  29. What a great story, Scott!! A similar incident happened here in our condo towers a month or two ago. A kitten jumped up beneath an auto in our condo tower and would not budge. We went to extraordinary lengths to coax him out and thought surely the owner of the car would fire it up and mangle the kitten we had affectionately named Ben Stein. Long story short, a Humane Society volunteer set traps and waited it out (something like 12-16 hours!!) and retrieved the kitten when he finally ventured out for sustenance. I like your story much better though and I’m so glad mine did not involve smelling a necrotic, uh, one slice toaster. Eww.

    • That’s a great story as well, especially since it has a happy ending. That was incredibly kind of the volunteer to wait it out that long, I don’t have near that kind of patience. We probably could have got it out a lot sooner but I couldn’t just wait around, it was really hot out and asphalty.

      Ben Stein may be the best name for a kitten. Ever!

      I hope someone kept it?

      Thanks Elizabeth!!
