This Week In Cats: When Opportunity Knocks

This week's cat of the week is none other than Squiggle, the feline who chose to spend the week showing off his best Grinch face. Simply inspirational stuff.

Finally, Gizmo excitedly reminded us how important it is to put a smile on every once in a while.

It was another incredible week in Cat Country — but things will just keep on getting more and more wild from here! Tune in next week to see what the cats have in store for us.

Those were the top links, now let's check out what advice Dumb Cat has to offer this week!

Dear Dumb Cat,

School is starting again soon and I REALLY don't want to go back AT ALL. What can I do so I don't have to go? My mom isn't really into the idea of me skipping school. I need to find a way to convince her.


Middle School Dread

Dear Dread,

There's only one real option here — you must enlist the help of every mouse in the neighborhood. Seriously, squash the feud for a few weeks and get the rodents on your side. The mice will act as such a horrific and dramatic distraction that your mom will simply forget all about the beginning of school. Fresh pencils, new binders, notebooks — all forgotten, left to the dust.

If you're unable to get a group of clever and dedicated rodents on your side, you'll simply have to bargain with her. Perhaps you can trade in school days for extra snacks? If this doesn't work, a good pee in the shoe will always get you where you need to go.
