Tribble the Cat Really Does Purr Just Like a Tribble

(Video Link)

Imagining getting access to the soothing cuddliness of a tribble without being eaten out of starbase and home. Then you'd have Tribble the cat. He's an older cat recently adopted from an animal shelter. Tribble's purr sounds like the trilling sound that a tribble from Star Trek makes.

Question for readers: would tribbles be any different in the mirror universe?

Oh, I fully imagine a scenario where someone would take a cat back, or any animal for that matter. I would just never do it. Just like I would never toss a child back who may have 'issues' of which can also be imagined. But then I prefer animals to people so maybe that makes it 'easier' for me.

Coincidentally, one of our two shelter cats makes Tribble-like sounds too (we're both ST fans). But as cute and loving as our cat can be, he also urinates on the bed (mostly my side), the guest bed, in the bath tub and for a long time: One area of the basement carpet.

He's fixed and we've taken him to the vet for this specifically. SSSCat fixed the bathub problem. The last time on the bed was just a few days ago, with a litter box five feet away. He's probably just very skittish and needs to intermingle his scents with ours, but I'm sure you can now imagine one scenario that could lead to people taking a cat back. Good thing for him he's incredibly loving--especially to my wife. ;-)
