Spitting Cat

Postby Ship called Dignity » Sun Jul 17, 2005 12:39 pm

Do many of you know about the Spitting Cat?

Can be seen on a wall along Low Askomil just past Rosemount Guesthouse on the wall.

I can just remember as a young fla being told to spit on it and make a wish!

Anyway, I remembered about it today and took this wee snap.

Looks like a cat right enough!

When I was a child my mother used to give me her lipstick to draw eyes and a mouth.

Long time ago :( :(

Yes my dear, regression therapy is very much in vogue at this present time. I personally don't hold much store in some of the more cosmopolitan regimes. My advice to you however is: keep taking the small red pills as instructed, before food and with plenty of still water.

Try and avoid empty rooms, pomegranate juice and Carradale at all cost! If you hear unexplainable voices then phone your best friend, you may have an infestation of bochan! :shock:
Dr Snod Esq.

Two spoonfulls of Halibut-Liver Oil, Morning & Evening. You know the surgery hours, so don't bother me at any other time. I most certainly don't get paid enough.

Any resemblance to Snoddy's past and present are purely coincidental!
