Cat fight!

January 24th, 2009 · 268 comments

One night last summer, Sylvia in New York was just chillin’ out watching TV, when she noticed a cat had wandered through the open window. Sylvia, an animal-lover, assumed he was a stray (he didn’t have a collar), and because “he was super cute and affectionate,” she says, “we let him stay a little while. he decided to make himself comfortable and fell asleep.”

The cat was gone by morning, but a few days later, Sylvia saw the same feline running down the sidewalk outside her apartment. Not wanting the poor kitty to get hit by a car or picked up by animal control, Sylvia scooped him up and brought him inside.

“I was going to ask around and see if anyone nearby owned him,” she says, but her neighbor beat her to the punch. “She knocked on our door and explained that an employee at the nail salon downstairs had seen me take him inside, and I told her I thought he was a stray. The woman seemed okay, took the cat, and I thought that was the end of it.”

The neighbor, it seems, thought otherwise.

3rd Floor Chinese Girl: Please do not just "take" my cat to your apartment without asking. Thanks lot!!!

    That’s so spooky. A few days ago I dreamt a hot Chinese girl and an illiterate woman who seemed okay were fighting over me. I woke up very aroused and with the taste of catfood in my mouth.

    Dear 3rd Floor Chinese Girl,

    Please do not just “take” my cat to your apartment without asking.

    If you care to do anything besides JUST “taking” though feel free to do it without asking.

    Taking the cat to your apartment AND keeping it would be fine.

    Thanks, lot!

    Judging from this neighbor’s handwriting and the fact that the cat got out twice (that we know of), she’s about nine and probably isn’t responsible enough to have a cat of her own.

    (Although, to be fair, Sylvia also shouldn’t have just “taken” the cat. Without calling the animal shelter first, of course.)

      Of course, someone was going to bring up Kung Fu. And obviously, Sylvia was going to eat the cat, after all she’s “Chinese”, right? I’m actually surprised nobody has mentioned Hello Kitty yet.

      Is Kung Fu not a Chinese martial art?
      The Kung Fu movies I saw were made in Hong Kong. Is Hong Kong not in China?

      I find nothing racist about my remark…and I regret nothing.

    • #11.21   julian

      Really, PO? But no response to the fact that the original note writer called Sylvia “3rd [?] floor Chinese girl”? THAT was offensive to me. I mean, if you’re taking someone’s cat, you probably know who you are. You don’t exactly need your race to differentiate you from all those OTHER folks that are taking what’s-its cat.

      Or maybe that really IS the problem. Maybe the note writer is even more racist than we assume, and is perfectly fine with all the Anglo folks who are “taking” the cat, just not Sylvia.

      Annnnd when I originally read the comment about Sylvia eating the cat, I had already forgotten she was supposedly Chinese, so I just thought it was funny. Because if your animal is wandering around in someone’s apartment, being eaten isn’t the worst thing that can happen to it.

    • #11.22   moomoo

      obviously po got it wrong. i think most people who post on passive aggressive notes are intelligent, middle class, middle aged, hip n cool whip white people who are certainly not racist. so making a racist joke is totally cool because no one here is really racist, right? so if i make a joke about africans and mexicans and other non-whites it’s still cool because we’re grown up enough to find it funny and harmless. because obviously if i *wanted* to do so, i could make a joke about how the japs and gooks look the same and everyone would laugh, because the cool kids are here and everyone is just cool and smooth and so fucking open-minded, right?

      well i guess i am not cool enough for passive aggressive notes because i found woman on the verge and all the other posters who supported her to be offensive. i’m korean and the dog/cat eating jokes offend me. i don’t think most of the people who hated on pissed off would understand what it’s like to be the butt of a “harmless” racist joke. woman on the verge, would you make that joke in front of a chinese person? you might think it’s ok and all in good humor, as long as you make sure the person knows you’re NOT racist, but i have dealt with many people who share your sense of humor and trust me, reassuring them you’re only joking and stressing the non-prejudice thing is not enough to excuse it.

      i’m a little disappointed there aren’t more jokes about the racism in the note instead of lame “jokes” about asian stereotypes. i guess this just proves that many people still think it’s acceptable to make racist jokes about asians. is it the whole model minority thing?

      but who cares about my opinion anyway, i’m just some cat eating chink, right? i just totally ruined the vibe here…darn. definitely not in the cool kids club, which, btw can suck it.

      i guess i write too much when i’m angry. i’m sorry wade didn’t read my post :-(

      humor, laughter, and good sportsmanship are fantastic, but i think people are forgetting that i have a right to express my opinion, even if it’s not funny. i’m from rural nc and i’ve heard these lines too many times to count. i do a spectacular “me rove you rong time” and i can laugh at an asian joke, but i couldn’t help but “share” my opinion when people were jumping all over po, who was way outnumbered.

      do we not have a right to be offended? or should all the non-funny comments be deleted? should anyone who sees a wrong sit down and shut up because they might annoy others?

      i’m glad i am so amusing, and please make light of mine and many others’ constant battle with prejudice and discrimination, no matter how funny or insignificant it is. and yes, i’m being facetious.

      Abstemious also has this property. The adverb form, abstemiously, contains a, e, i, o, u, and (sometimes) y. It is defined as using restraint, especially in the consumption of alcohol, which explains why I had to look it up to know what it meant.

      Just sayin’…if she didn’t even know Sylvia’s name I find it very suspect that she could immediately call her Asian ethnicity. I mean, my boyfriend lived in Japan for years and still has trouble discerning facial features.

      Unless Sylvia was wearing a Yao Ming T-shirt, singing “San Min Chu-i”, toting a copy of Kai La, and bailing out every business on her block.

    My neighbors had a cat that absolutely hated them -he was always jumping out windows trying to break free. I used to take pity on him and bring him in whenever I could.

    Just a thought…I think the notion that saying all those of a certain group look the same is more about exposure and less about bigotry.

    My husband is from West Africa–I’m white–and until we started dating, he’d not had a lot of close relationships with any Caucasians. He still doesn’t describe a white person to me in more detail than “um…a smallish girl”. He doesn’t see the same things I do, since he grew up looking at other black people and recognizes people by different qualities than I do.

      Growing up in Ghana and growing up in the US–even if your town is mostly African-American–are bound to instill different perspectives, no?

      Things may be different once my husband has lived in the US for awhile–he’s coming up on 2 yrs–but for now, when he says “White people look the same to me”, I expect he means white people look the same to him.

      For God’s sake, “prespective” was obviously a typo, since I spelled it correctly in several other places.

      Earlier on in the comment section, there was some discussion about the statement “Asians look alike” being a bigoted statment. My comment was just meant to suggest maybe it’s not intentional bigotry, but rather lack of attention to details, or maybe lack of exposure.

      Canthz_B @ 29.5 “Humans all use the human brain’s facial recognition software (if you will).”

      Yep, we all have the same software, but how it ‘loads’ depends on how much exposure you have to people of different ethnicities. Look up some psychological studies – there’s evidence to show that the less exposure to one ethnicity someone has, the harder it is for them to tell people of that ethnicity apart. So people do all ‘look the same’ if you haven’t had the exposure – as someone like two cent’s husband growing up in Ghana would presumably have (I am making this assumption two cents, please correct me if I’m wrong). Not “slow witted” at all! I’d say both Canthz and two cent’s husband would be better at recognising someone’s face than describing it. But how good they are at recognising people of different ethnicities would presumably differ for the above reasons.

      Hmm, no witty comment here, sorry guys.

      The ability to describe faces, or anything for that matter, has to do more with language than facial recognition abilities.

      You can find studies that show results of all kinds. The fact of the matter is that it is difficult to design a study which is valid when you really don’t understand what it is that you are trying to test for.
      No study can tell you whether it’s harder to tell different ethnicities apart or whether there’s less interest in doing so on the part of the subjects being tested. That’s why the “studies” you site haven’t been used in court.

      So I say again, it’s easier to point someone out, than it is to describe them…and the race of the persons involved has no bearing on that.

      My real-life example comes from when I was mugged at gun-point.

      My mugger was the same race as I…and I’d know him if I ever saw him again…but I really can’t give you a picture of him anything more than proportions.

      Saying “I can’t, because they all look alike.” is just an attempt at face-saving so one doesn’t have to say… “I can’t, because I don’t know how.”

      Thank you Mango–and yes, you’re right, my husband had relatively no exposure to white people until he started traveling in his 20′s. I’m pretty sure his “software” would have been established by that time. He says the only white people he saw in primary school books were Jesus and Santa Claus, so if by chance they did see a white person, they were quick to run home and tell Mom they’d seen Jesus. Obviously as he grew up he no longer assumed all white people were Jesus, but you get my point.

      The capital city of Ghana is pretty diverse, but I don’t have to go far outside Accra before I’m the only white person as far as the eye can see. I would venture to say the kids I encounter–who are flipping out yelling “Obruni!” at me–wouldn’t be able to tell me apart from the last white person who happened to be in their neighborhood. I don’t take it personally, and I certainly wouldn’t call them slow-witted for their lack of exposure.

      Canthz B–it’s intriguing how you demand studies to back up Mango’s statements, but through all of the BS you’ve shoveled, you’ve provided none. Unless Invisible Man is meant to be a “scientific study”? Just because it’s your opinion doesn’t make it fact.

      I was not attacking you personally, I was feeling sorry for you, as I still do. You seem to enjoy handing out opinions and judgements, so here’s one for you. You are a sad little person.

      Anyway, I’m not a cultural expert. I’m just open-minded enough to know that I’m not better than anyone else.
      That a specious statement should not be taken as a fact of life.
      That’s all.
      Try THINKING about the implications of what you are asserting and you will see that it is patently absurd that humans of one ethnicity lack the ability to discern differences between humans of other ethnicity.

      If you can, than others can. If you can’t, then you’re not trying.

      Hell, I gave you a simple example above of how that crap would likely play out in practice in the real world. Do you need me to spoon feed further?

      No, your obsession with yourself, willingness to insult total strangers, and inability to see from anyone else’s viewpoint make me uncomfortable.

      As for how the whole thing plays out in real life, let me spoon feed in return.

      My husband: “I ran into one of your friends today, she said to tell you hi.”

      Me: “Oh, who was that?”

      Husband: “Um, I can’t think of her name.”

      Me: “What did she look like?”

      Husband: “…um, you know…smallish girl (holds hand about 5′ off the ground)…British…big eyes (opens his eyes really wide)…you know.”

      Me, usually laughing by this point: “Okay, Ilne? Laura? Sarah?” and then I usually let it go. I don’t expect him to notice the things I would, and eventually I’ll run into that person again, so it doesn’t really matter who it was.

      I missed the Bourdain special–I’ll have to look for it. I just love West Africa in general– Liberia has my heart, but Ghana is easier to travel in, being that they don’t have a destroyed infrastructure and all. I was a volunteer while I lived in West Africa, so I’m not afraid to say the fact that things are CHEAP is a great benefit as well. (Makes up for crazy spendy plane ticket.)

      There are gorgeous beaches (Ada Foah and Busua are my faves), great markets, great little towns (Akosombo, Takoradi and Cape Coast come to mind), and you’re right, Accra does have a great vibe. Ghana IS wonderful, it is it is!! I live in the midwest now, so don’t get too many people interested in Ghana–always glad to share!

      Ok, the delay in responding was due to me a.) being in a different time zone and b.) having things to do that weren’t Internet related :P

      Yes, I agree with you Canthz in that you can find studies to back up any point of view you have (which is why psychological studies are very rarely used in court!) But I personally think the majority of the evidence leans towards an ‘own race bias’ in facial recognition. And yes, I should have cited these instead of just saying there IS evidence. But I had stuff to do. So now I have some free time, here are some
      references to support this (I’ve tried to keep them recent, and chosen those that are publicly available on the net) Do I still get those 2 pts from you? :)

      A holistic account of the own-race effect in face
      recognition: evidence from a cross-cultural study: Tanakaa, Kiefer & Bukach

      And there are many more. No doubt some people just can’t be bothered telling “them” apart because of prejudice. It’s a very complex area, and I’m far from being the most well-informed person. I tried to be fair, and searched for a critique of own race bias, but couldn’t find any articles. This doesn’t mean that there aren’t any, I just couldn’t find any.

      I apologise if anyone thought this was an attack on Canthz – I read what you had said and wanted to give my opinion, based on what I knew about the area. Even if you don’t agree with me, maybe it’s food for thought?

      I think next time I comment I’ll try a joke! It’s getting too serious in here!

I’m very white, and I wind up describing a lot of people as, “I don’t know, he just looks like a middle-aged white guy. With a beard.”

      Although when Tim Meddows was on the Colbert Report recently as P. K. Winsome, my first thought when “P. K. Winsome” came onscreen was, “Hey, that guy looks a lot like Tim Meddows.” Then I felt like a racist jerk, until I realized it WAS Tim Meddows.

    Reminds me of my friend who lived in a ground floor apartment next door to slobs who made their kitten stay outdoors in -20 C temperatures. It would just sit there and mew the most awful mewing. She let it in to her own apartment one time because she felt so sorry for it and they got all pissy at her. I don’t think she could really say anything to them though, I think they were drug dealers or something.

    I leave you kids alone for a couple of days…..

    This whole note is fishy. If Sylvia took the cat to her apartment on the 3ld(?) floor, how did the employee at the alleged “manicure” salon know which unit Sylvia lived in?

    Sylvia references “we” in her submission, but she doesn’t specifically mention a roommate.

    Therefore, I conclude that Sylvia is a lonely, mentally-deranged, not-so-borderline schizophrenic, who is in the habit of trading her prescribed medications for the exhilaration she gets from street drugs, which enable her to lose her inhibitions and brazenly act upon fulfilling her hunger for freaky sex with random strangers.

    When the drugs wear off, the paranoia and the voices return. She starts inventing stories about stray cats and hostile manicure/pedicure professionals.

    For just $3 a day from everyone who uses the internet, I believe I could help Sylvia.

    Manicuring nails is demanding enough without having to look over ones shoulder in fear of a paranoid nymphomaniac barging in through your door making bizarre and ludicrously false allegations.

    In fact, the more I think about it, I doubt the veracity of this entire tale.

    There is no salon.

    There is no cat.

    There is no Sylvia.

    And whatever didn’t happen, I can guarantee you that it didn’t happen in Brooklyn, either. This mental wank-a-thon has Queens written all over it. Most likely, Howard Beach.

    I’m sorry you people wasted all your time trying to unravel a non-mystery.

    I’ll speak with Kerry about reimbursing you for your time and effort, but I’m not making any promises. Given the state of the economy, I’d say that half of you are lucky to still be getting paid for your hackneyed commentary.

    I find it difficult to tell cats apart- I don’t know they just all look the same. Anyway if any of this is true- said cat should be damn glad that it wasn’t found in South America as they are being used as live bait for fishermen. See- Save Our Cats From Fishermen. Truly disturbing but what puzzels me is that apparently no one give a rats ass about the fish. In summation I can only say that her perfume did smell like shit.

And, no I do not want Saysh to “fuck” with me. Actually I was glad to see the fight starting to simmer down but when I read that comment from her…well I was halfway through a response before I could stop myself. It just reminded me of when the big ol’ internet was first starting to get popular and people in chat rooms would get in fights and be all, “just tell me what zip code you’re in a-hole and me and my cousins will come kick your ass!” and I just thought it was so ridiculous…anyways, that’s all.

      It’s awkward, but, with PANsies, it’s also sadly necessary.

      And, yet, so unnecessary! Why do people steal and whine? Well, I can lead a horse to the pool, but I can’t make it back-float. Well, actually I could. But why would I want to?

      I spent the day in Portland, OR. Had a lovely time, as did everyone I met. Winks and smiles are contagious, I guess.

      While I was there, I was struck by this strange sensation* that I’d left something unfinished at home.

      Fortunately for me, the answers arrived almost instantaneously.

      1. I’d neglected to chide Wade about his use of the word, “shan’t.” Face it, I’m right. Again.

      Here’s a marker for Wade: if the word in question was too prissy for Liberace and Quentin Crisp, don’t use it. (Obviously, some here could get away with using it. Canthz B, for example.)

      2. WotV: I meant to say this to you yesterday in your preliminary evaluation, but I got distracted by my desperate desire to prevent anglophile from being swindled out of her life’s savings.

      (After Bernie, none of us can afford not to be ultra-cautious. I’ve always slept with one eye open, but now, during the ten or so hours that I’m awake during the day, I’ve trained myself to blink only one eye at a time, so I never miss anything that is transpiring around me. It takes practice (and cunning), but once you get the hang of it, you’ll find that it’s a great conversation starter. I’ve become friends with people whom I might not have even said, “hi,” to before. Some think I’m winking at them. Others ask me if there’s something wrong with my eyes.)

      Where was I? Yes. Your evaluation. Once again, WotV, this concerns your avatar. I’m afraid I’m going to be forced to deduct three times the usual number of points if you are, in real life, also a redhead. I’m sure you understand why.

      * Like being patted lightly on the buttocks by a midget holding a miniature tazer that is set to a ludicrously low level (i.e., it doesn’t hurt, but you’re aware that a half-pint is tapping your butt with some sort of electric stick).

    Leave us alone, Amy D! We’ll tell you if we want to get hitched!

    At least she didn’t botch up your intended meaning. I’m sure you’ll make up the lovelier half of whatever you attach to, anglophile. Just don’t let Amy D be the one who says, “I do,” for you. I wouldn’t put it past her. (She’s a ventriloquist.)

      As for whether amy was presumptuous, I am pretty sure our relationship as sisters might tend to sway the pendulum toward the forgiveness side.

      And anyway, I’m forever giving people second, third, and even fourth chances. Benefit of the doubt, that’s my motto.

    I think it’s marvelous that the Catholics have eased up on the forbidden nonsense regarding nun on nun sex. I might just give a leper a nickel, out of respect for the Pope’s open-mindedness.

    When you stop and think about it, you’ve got to admit that it was surely overdue. The priests have been having their way with altar boys for eons.

    And who can blame them? What, with the provocative way those shiny-faced lads dress. Not to mention their seductive expressions.

    At least the parish doors are finally swinging in both directions.

    Be careful though with sister Amy. I heard that she was born in a brothel and got some rare std from a toilet seat that was in the can next to the pecker checker’s waiting room.

      You also chose the wrong definition of sister when you read my thread. While I am a dried-up barren nearly-crazy cat lady with a sad devotion to her nephews, I am neither a nun nor am I Catholic. I gave both up for Lent and never looked back.

      You might have a little better luck with interpersonal relationships if you start choosing the first definition in the dictionary when you look up words you don’t know, such as sister and humor. :)

      Ouch.

      You retained the lessons of your catho-sadistic, upbringing, anyway.

      Humor? I know it when I stomp on it.

      OMG! (Oh My God!) There’s a scuffle between two guys on tv. So sad. Why can’t people just not scuffle? Especially on tv. During Friday Evening Services.

      Have you had dna testing done for total assurance confirmation? Something here just doesn’t ring silver bell clear to me. I get the sense that an impostor has been playing some sick game with you (possibly for financial gain….maybe hoping to inherit some cats further down the road, then peddle them like common produce out in front of the A&P.

      I’ve seen types like Amy D before. Molls. Hussies. Kink-crazed daughters of Bezelbub.

      You tell her this: “Amy, if you even think of acting out on your filthy, dimestore scams or schemes, the only trip you’ll ever take is the one that you get if you luck out and win some sort of sweepstakes.”

      Watch her chin as you speak. The chin doesn’t lie.

    #43- Wine is spelled right but the beans are not. All caps are annoying.

    “Dear nail salon biatch,
    Please do not just LET your cat outside in an urban environment where it could be killed, maimed, run-over, eaten by the 1st gen chinese girl on the scnd floor, or taken by neighbors who actually give a damn about how animals are treated and taken care of…
    Thank you belly-moutsch,
    3ld floor chinese girl”

    I skipped most of the racist arguments, PO and others please watch a Lisa Lampanelli stand up ( or insert offensive comedian here ). Humor and being able to take a joke is the first step to ending racism.

    Now before i get back in my pick-up to take my cousin out.

    I wanted to point out the lack of comments on the fact that the majority of Nail Salon employees are Korean and the cat-napper was Chinese…

    I live that line open for Y’All.

      when I think of Lisa Lampanelli I think of the title of yesterday’s PAN offering:
