At Pooner's mommy's request, I share with you the following "Sphynx moment":

We have a crew of Hispanic gentlemen who come every two weeks to mow our lawn. They speak little to no English.

During the warmer months, the morning sun streams in the living room window. I have a "cat table" set in front of the window, with a big basket for them to curl up in. Gabriel discovered that prime sunny spot, and would hop out of bed and claim it before the other cats woke up.

Early one morning, I heard the yard crew arrive. They mowed, edged....then the noise stopped and I heard voices. It sounded like they were arguing. So, I sleepily wandered out to the living room. Outside my big living room picture window were two men gesturing madly and shouting at each other.

Then I realized what the problem was: They were arguing about the strange creature bathing himself in the sunlight just inside the window.

I picked him up, and took him out onto the porch so they could meet him. They petted him and laughed. Then the one who spoke the most English said very carefully:

"Excuse please ma'am. Is cat? Or is dog?"

That is a good one, I would love to know how long it would have went on if you did not go and show them, or even better if they would return next week :LOL:

Too funny! My husband (the proclaimed cat-hater) always finds Sphyncter to show him off to everyone. I'm not sure he knows "what" he is! :LOL:

My husband is a proud poppa show off too. I went to ladies' room during our last cat show only to return to find my husband telling a couple all about Gleek and the breed.

How funny:LOL: Atleast they narrowed the choices down to cat or dog instead of alien, monkey or ?????

Awesome, I can't help giggling when people are confused about our kitties. One time a sheriff's deputy thought my Little Ren was a monkey. I still laugh about that.

Thanks for sharing! I was thinking about this story yesterday and just couldn't remember the details. Can you imagine if Pooner was over and he and Gabe were both in the window?? That would have really freaked out the poor lawn guys:LOL::LOL::LOL:
