"The sweet smell of science" or "How many cats do you have in here, anyway?"


Came in this morning, and the entire central part of our building ... reeks of cat piss. Apparently this happens whenever it rains with any vigor, due to the crazies that are raising colonies of feral cats under our building.

I watch them feed the little buggers outside my window every day. I'm tempted to "accidentally" dump water out of my window on them one of these days.

Thankfully, my office is not in an area affected by the stench. Yet.

Yarns have already been spun by MSFF old-timers about the unholy aroma that permeates the building when one of the many cats actually dies in the crawlspaces. I cannot wait to experience that myself.

Oh, and while we're on the subject of crazy cat ladies, let me wish Vicki a preemptive happy birthday!


It is the kind of scent to bottle and use on the six-fingered man. No lesser criminal could really deserve it.
