“Okay, so I’m not sure if I’m in the wrong on this one,” says Melanie from Sydney. “I have a long-haired cat who sheds a lot, so I just used to pick up the bits of fur and throw them out the window.” (Um, right, of course.) Melanie continues: “I’m on the third floor and look out over the street, so I didn’t think it would upset anyone. but then I found this clump of cat hair in my mailbox.”

the cat hair in question

Melanie adds: “I live in a block of 40+ units and my cat is an indoor cat, so a) no one really knows I have him, and b) it must have pretty hard to track done the owner of the multi-shedding, window-fur-tossing cat. That one clump of fur — which they would have had to have collected over a period of at least two weeks — says more than words ever could.”

    So, Melanie or Melody, that fur looks like a fairly solid clump, but you reckon it’s a couple of weeks’ worth. Did your neighbour/stalker sort of work the fur into a solid clump before returning it to you?

    Are you sure the fur’s from your cat? I would have expected scrappy little bits of cat fur to blow away, rather than hang around long enough to annoy someone & be collected. So peculiar….

    the ultimate revenge would be to find out who this person is, collect the hair from their drain, and put it in their mailbox.

    Oh my god, I’d be very worries if I were the cat owner. I don’t think she was in the wrong, she couldn’t know she was harming anyone. If they went to all that trouble finding her, the PA pet-detective could have just had a word and asked her nicely not to do it anymore.

    So, team cat-owner for me; unless the pet-detective had already had a word.

    My guess is that Ms. Melanie does not actually watch the fur fall all the way to the ground. It is more likely wafting into the window of one of the two apartments below her.

    I’m looking for this note to follow:

    Glad U have great pet life, but we think it is time to replace yr old cat, Dear. Shed awful when U throw fur out window also U need mange medicine mate coz we can see seem took U so long to toss it all out & done with it!!

    Well gosh, while personally I’d be more likely to vacuum the fur if it were bothering me, I hold there’s no harm in throwing fur out the window. Sydney positively writhes with wild furry animals, particularly possums; somehow, all the fur they shed avoids gathering over the months into great shed fur drifts. (But get a hoover dammit.)

    As for window wafting, yes I suppose, but if they’ve got their windows open without screens in Sydney then they clearly aren’t too fussy about what wanders in (moths, mosquitos, cockroaches, even bats maybe).

    Wade, jeez that’d be hilarious, if it turned out to be the same apartment block.

    I reckon Melanie’s stalker has tapped her broadband cable & knows she’s a PAN fan. This was a sort of “gift”; next he will ask her out.

    I thought about the screen thing, Troy, but since Melanie thinks nothing of throwing fur out the window, I assumed that screens were not an option on their windows.

    I mean, wouldn’t it be easier to throw the hair into the trash can rather than remove a screen and toss it to the street below?

    Cat hair: it’s what’s for dinner.

    And collected meticulously over the course of WEEKS is most definitely some p-a behavior. Or even if its just some random fur as a payback, thats p-a too.

    I also think Mel is fooling herself. If her apartment faces the street, everyone has the opportunity to watch her toss the fur.

    That said, leaving a clump of fur in the mailbox is über creepy. At least it wasn’t shoved under the door.

  • #40   Troy McClure bang

    Actually CB I like your kidnapping scenario. I believe that the “catnapping” was foiled by a very streetwise alley cat who just happens to bear a striking resemblance to Boots. The alley cat, Claude let’s say, had his ear to the ground, saw the crime coming & figured it could work to his advantage. He snuck into Melanie’s apartment by climbing the fire escape & jumping in through the shredded flyscreen. The perpetrators left the fur as a “teaser”—kidnapping is all psychology—but it’s totally inscrutible to Melanie because she thinks she’s still got her cat.

    The strange absence of either a screen or a wastebasket in Melanie’s life makes me very troubled. What other things have found their way in or out of Melanie’s apartment? What does Melanie do with her used tissues, toe nail clippings, banana peels, etc?

    And do we have a positive DNA test on this fur to make sure it is coming from Boots, or could it have come from that family of long-haired rats living in the mailbox?

    Okay, as I’m the creepy fur-thrower this post is about, I feel I should explain my trash habits… cat fur is the ONLY THING I chuck out the window. I have a rag doll cat who sheds more than you would biologically think possible, and it’s a pain having to walk the tufts of the damn stuff to the bin every three seconds when I’m strolling past the window/sitting on my lounge next to said window.

    But like I said, I know I was probably in the wrong on this one, was just curious what others thought …

    Trouble is, the cat keeps moving around, so wherever the bin is, there’s always fur at the far end of the unit. An idea might be to keep the cat in a cage suspended over the rubbish bin.

    The only thing I say about this note is that I am thankful for the key providing scale to the hair clump in question.

    One thing: How can you be sure the hair went straight to the street? Are there fire escapes/balconies? If so, it’d be a pretty quick deduction where the hair was coming from, if I was sitting right below, enjoying a coffee, reading the newspaper… then… PLOP!… right in my FUCKING COFFEE SOME FUCKING CAT HAIR FROM RIGHT ABOVE ME! SHITSHITSHIT.

    Ahem… the next logical step is to collect and stuff a furball into the offender’s mailbox — a furball they’re used to flicking out the window. Anyway, at least this takes us from that last note. Whoopee!

    One word of advice to Melanie. That fur clump probably will fling quite nicely out the window. Just make sure to wait until target is in range for best effect.

    I totally understand the plight of people trying to maintain a fluffy cat. I have a Persian and I had to shave him when he got neutered and he would not let me brush him at all! Two weeks of this left him with knots and I had to do the following:

    What’s with the people who don’t understand the lack of screens? Haven’t you ever been outside the U.S.? Only in America does every goddamn window have a shitty-looking screen on it. Yeah, it keeps out the insects, but it also keeps out some of the sunshine and fresh air.

    As for the cat hair, I’m team neighbor. Put it in the trash, lady.

    On a morning from a Hogan movie
    In a country where the folks speak Strine
    You go strolling through the crowd like Russell Crowe
    Just thinking, “Mate, I feel fine”
    It comes out of the sun like a fur turd
    Falling in your Four-X; now you can’t drink that
    Don’t bother asking for explanations
    Get a cork-string wide-brimmed hat

    It’s the Fur of the Cat
    It’s the Fur of the Cat

    She doesn’t give you time for questions
    Her window closes and she’s gone
    But by counting units you can guess the number
    into which she has withdrawn
    By a low brick wall there’s a postbox; just leave kitty’s
    Fur in there; don’t be too proud
    This cat, she says, creates more fur
    Than biologically allowed

    It’s the Fur of the Cat
    It’s the Fur of the Cat

    This will probably make me sound like a real freak, but back in the early ’70s when I was a kid growing up in Montana we always used to make a point of throwing the hair from your brush (or fur from the pet brush) outside in the bushes so that the birds could use it to feather their nests. I admit that it was recommended during the late-spring, early-summer nest-building season, but we usually did it all year long. There were some birds that didn’t fly south for the winter, and they definitely needed to insulate the nest come fall. We also hung out seed heads from sun flowers, and suet, and these balls of peanut butter and bird seed. I think we were just amazed any of those birds survived the winter up there.

    I do think it’s strange that the neighbor knew where to leave the fur but didn’t choose to knock on your door or leave a note. This message isn’t as clear…what if the neighbor is asking for more of the fabulous fur, if this is where it comes from. (Well, okay, that’s unlikely.)

    Anyway, my Monday thoughts:
    1) that’s not really a large clump of fur, so I imagine it wasn’t really collected over weeks — just that one last-straw time it bothered them;
    2) if the breeze patterns around your building make the fur from your window collect on neighbors’ (as others have suggested it may) fire escapes or (worse) blow into their unit and even (the horror!) into their coffee, I imagine collecting any sizeable clump would be a cinch;
    3) if your kitty likes brushed, try the furminating! mine adores the process, and then, most all your fur would come off at one time, and a trip to the trash wouldn’t be something you do for fur 150 times a day.

    In the end, I don’t think you are wrong to toss the fur out the window, but if it’s a consistent nuisance to one of your neighbors, maybe you can save up a furclump to take to a nearby park for birds and rodents to use in nests?

    While it would be creepy that some anonymous hair-collector knew who the cat’s owner was and left the fur clump in her mailbox, that may not be the only possible scenario here. Maybe the perp DOESN’T know who tossed the hair and instead collected enough to leave a tuft in each mailbox in the complex.

    Ok….I *think* I’m supposed to make a list here.
    I will admit, I’m kinda hoping its the magic that brings a new note:)

    Fucking Delicious: the cat, the cat fur (#1Yes!,#7), and though it wasn’t said explicitly I think #16 preferred dead mice. And#106 doesn’t seem to be down.

    #2 was not Fur St. (and can’t get a break at #6,8,9,and18)

    #14 If I ever should lose my mind – please remind me never to throw cat fur at you.

    Pet Detectives arrive at:#6,13,23,25,29,31,34,

    #4,5,15, 20,25,26,32,33,35,37,39,63,thought the offender would be very, very careful with that cat if she knows what’s good for her.

    Grammar atrocities at: #23,64,77,123,125

    Step into the Twilight Zone at #45 to #52, 77 to #84, #121 and 123.

    Then Melanie sets the record straight at #53.

    Team Cat Hair started at #58 got named at #59 and collected #61,119,120(sorta),

    Helpful advice?:#66,67,68,70,72,73,86,67,88,90,93(fucking delicious!),94,95,108,109,112,115,

    Visit the country at #113,116…and a penguin wanders by at #132and133.

    #103 – I don’t know this song ( I can hardly believe it!~) What’s it called for real?

    Group Hug!: #127 to 131.

    Actually – I’m glad I did that – it was fun!

    Hey TC! Thanks for changing your mind from the last thread. ;) I am sad, though, since the majority of my posts were after #135…and yet I still made the list! W00t!

    The song is Year of the Cat by Al Stewart from 1976. Another “hit” of his was Time Passages, put out a couple of years later. If you haven’t heard them, do not rush out to do so. You’re far better off. :)

    Yes, it DOES look like someone attempted to fashion some sort of rodent out of the shed fur.

    The issue is that pet people tend to forget that others are not used to having everything they own covered in fur. (I know I am guilty of this)

    #55 hmmm I didn’t feel ill treated at all on my first day posting. Everyone here is quite nice.

    Canthz B,
    Well if it is one of those open mailboxes that anyone can open it isn’t as creepy as if it is one of the ones that needs a key to get into. Needing a key to get in seems more threatening.

    We’re talking MOTIVE not accessibility.

    Good job CB – and without being a CSI watcher too!

    He is right, OPPORTUNITY is what you are talking about re: mailbox type.

    Everyone is probably confused, because they are often paired together, i.e. “Motive & Opportunity”

    Let’s stick to motive for now…

    Opportunity comes into the conversation when we have exhausted all other avenues of critiscm regarding this post’s situation…

    I mean, if my motive was to creep you out and you had a locked mailbox, I’d tape it to your front door, ya know? Mailbox type has nothing to do with the motives of the fur bandit.

  • #207   unholyghost2003

    Canthz B, Just so you know I am simply playing Devil’s advocate … but the HOW has implications for the WHY. People who are mildly annoyed might put a wad of cat hair in an easily accessible mailbox. Say if they are wandering past the mailboxes and realize that the clumps that have floated in through their window have adhered to their coat sleeve. People who want to send a threatening message will actually gather up the hair and break in to a mailbox that is usually locked.

    The type of mailbox determines crime of opportunity vs. premeditation.

    Nov 5, 2007 at 5:01 pm   rating: 1  small thumbs up

     
  • #208   unholyghost2003

    opportunity vs premeditation does go toward motive.
    The first scenario I posited is essentially motiveless. Random luck is why the actual cat owner got the cat hair. The second scenario says “I know where you live. BITCH BRUSH YOUR CAT!”

  • #209   Canthz_B bang

    But this question was framed from the other direction…the question was MOTIVE not opportunity. If the motive is to creep someone out then entering a secured mailbox would suffice, if the motive was to say “keep you cat hair to yourself” the type of mailbox matters not because this could be accomplished in other ways.

  • #210   Canthz_B bang

    We are given premeditation in that the amount of cat hair was supposedly gathered over time.
    The question is motive and the choice of the recipient’s mailbox vs. some other means of delivery. What I am saying is that the type of mailbox has no bearing on the motive of the deliverer, the cat hair will be delivered one way or another.

    true enough! Like I said I was playing Devil’s Advocate! What if the motive was to get melanie to fall in love with the person who left the fur? I think this person just thinks s/he found in melanie someone to truly appreciate his/her art. S/he saw melanie and thought “Here is a person who will love the irony of Rodents crafted out of cat fur. I will leave her one as a gift!”

    But the motive of the deliverer can establish the “how” of the delivery and the “how ” can adhere to the “why” it was delivered in that way which could define what the motive really was.

If you follow the evolution of most European art forms (I *believe*) you can see a progression where art is accepted explicitly as an expression of the divine; the communal and shared experiences and gradually becomes more and more centred on individual, private experiences.

    But it’s so simple. All I have to do is divine from what I know of you: are you the sort of man who would put the poison into his own goblet or his enemy’s? Now, a clever man would put the poison into his own goblet, because he would know that only a great fool would reach for what he was given. I am not a great fool, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of you. But you must have known I was not a great fool, you would have counted on it, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of me.

    It would have been a better passive aggressive move to save up all the hair in order to create a *new* cat to stuff in her mailbox, or throw out the window. Also, if I got a face full of persian long-strands while standing on the street corner, I would have counted windows, too, and then bribed the doorman and mailman, or broken into the mailbox on my own. Does that make me a stalker? (Well, I am one, sort of, anyway, according to the readers on my blog, so no need to answer. I’m just musing.) I hate cat hair.

    Sylvester (the cat) had been waiting for days for a special delivery. Finally, he spotted the mailman delivering what appeared to be a yellow Tweety Bird to his owner’s mailbox. He slunk out the window and slipped into the box just before the mailman locked it up.

    But what he thought was Tweety is only junk mail for the Warner Brothers DVD club. Now Sylvester has to squeeze out the mail slot, and guess what he leaves behind?
