Fainting Goats (and Burton the fainting cat)

Thanks to Lizzibelle for posting this gem. I wish Chumley was a fainting cat.

My girlfriend Rebecca has a real live fainting cat! Please say hello to Burton. This is how he sleeps:

What a little nutball. She tends to have some interesting felines. Her last cat was a beautiful Siamese named Shylee who would chew holes in all her clothes and would randomly attack when walking by. Shylee was a male cat but he had legs like a woman. My nickname for him was "Woman Legs" and after a while Rebecca started to call him that too. You just had to see the legs to believe it.

Now Burton's nickname is "Fainting Goat".

I know! I never would have known if it wasn't for the fainting goats!

Mike Rowe from "Dirty Jobs" did a show that involved fainting goats. Hubster and I were laughing so hard when we saw that episode.... it really is adorable, and you feel slightly sad for the poor goats. It would be fun to have one as a pet. Quite the conversation starter.

There you go again, making me laugh out loud when I'm home alone! It feels crazy, but what fun. The goats and the cat are a powerful combo.

My grandma's siamese attacked when walking by, she was freaking schizo. We got to keep her about 5 years after grandma passed away. It was purr joy. not.

Fainting goats and cats? That's hilarious. I always want to meet someone with narcolepsy. I'm sure it's a serious condition, but it seems so funny.

OMG Stephanie I used to work with a woman who had narcolepsy. While I was training her on our systems/programs she would nod off and be out cold! It was sooo eerie. I really want a friend and fellow co-worker to tell the story because he used to make me laugh soooo hard when this would happen. I'm going to see if he would "guest blog" on this. Thanks for brining this up!
