    Cats and Teenagers

    For all of you with teenagers or who have had teenagers, or are a teenager, you may want to know why they really have a lot in common with cats:

    1 - Neither teenagers nor cats turn their heads when you call them by name.

    2 - No matter what you do for them, it is not enough. Indeed, all humane efforts are barely adequate to compensate for the privilege of waiting on them hand and foot.

    3 - You rarely see a cat walking outside of the house with an adult human being, and it can be safely said that no teenager in his or her right mind wants to be seen in public with his or her parents.

    4 - Even if you tell jokes as well as Jay Leno, neither your cat nor your teen will ever crack a smile.

    5 - No cat or teenager shares you taste in music.

    6 - Cats and teenagers can lie on the living-room sofa for hours on end without moving, barely breathing.

    7 - Cats have nine lives. Teenagers carry on as if they did.

    8 - Cats and teenagers yawn in exactly the same manner, communicating that ultimate human ecstasy -- a sense of complete and utter boredom.

    9 - Cats and teenagers do not improve anyone's furniture.

    10 - Cats that are free to roam outside sometimes have been known to return in the middle of the night to deposit a dead animal in your bedroom. Teenagers are not above that sort of behavior.

    Thus, if you must raise teenagers, the best sources of advice are not other parents, but veterinarians. It is also a good idea to keep a guidebook on cats at hand at all times. And remember, above all else, put out the food and do not make any sudden moves in their direction. When they make up their minds, they will finally come to you for some affection and comfort, and it will be a triumphant moment for all concerned.

    Re: Cats and Teenagers

    Call me an odd-ball...


    1 - Neither teenagers nor cats turn their heads when you call them by name.

    My common sense dictates that I look back when my name is uttered.

    2 - No matter what you do for them, it is not enough. Indeed, all humane efforts are barely adequate to compensate for the privilege of waiting on them hand and foot.

    Sometimes, indeed.

    3 - You rarely see a cat walking outside of the house with an adult human being, and it can be safely said that no teenager in his or her right mind wants to be seen in public with his or her parents.

    I cherish every moment with my parents. You'll see me walking hand-in-hand with my mother if your luck catches me at the malls the one time I visit it annually.

    4 - Even if you tell jokes as well as Jay Leno, neither your cat nor your teen will ever crack a smile.

    Partially true. But that just depends on how my mood is at the time of the joke. I can stretch to the other end and crack open a smile at the worst of "jokes".

    5 - No cat or teenager shares you taste in music.

    Completely wrong I enjoy classical Indian ghazals just like my parents. At the same time I enjoy quite a bit of Jacko'.

    6 - Cats and teenagers can lie on the living-room sofa for hours on end without moving, barely breathing.

    Bingo! This could not be more true

    7 - Cats have nine lives. Teenagers carry on as if they did.

    Bah!

    8 - Cats and teenagers yawn in exactly the same manner, communicating that ultimate human ecstasy -- a sense of complete and utter boredom.

    LOL, another bingo! But I don't foresee this changing now or in future.

    9 - Cats and teenagers do not improve anyone's furniture.
    Another bingo!

    10 - Cats that are free to roam outside sometimes have been known to return in the middle of the night to deposit a dead animal in your bedroom. Teenagers are not above that sort of behavior.

    Naa, not applicable to me.

    The same could be prescribed to more adults than you can imagine

    I would have to say me and my cat are the exact opposite of these statements.

    For clarity's sake, don't use "<ip address of hostname>" use the ACTUAL 32-bit numeric IP address of the machine.
