Bloom County: Opus has a point lol

Rubio reminds me of

the kid who sticks his tongue on a frozen pole and can't move. Trump and Cruz remind me of the people who would convince him to do it. The rest would see him and leave him there.

Poor Moonpie is now terrorized.(Update)

This is the culprit:

This is one of the cat teasers I have. They love to play with all of them. Up until yesterday, both of them loved this one too. Now Moonpie runs like she stole something when she sees it.
I do not tease her with it. She obviously is scared of it now. I don't remember anything that seemed to scare her her when she was playing with it the last time. Tater ain't skeered.

Maybe Tater chased her with it while I was asleep or she had a nightmare. Moonpie does bite at the feathers when it's just still. Let it move though and whoosh. It's like the flying monkeys from Oz are after her.
I believe cats see things we can't. There is obviously something lurking with it. Maybe I should throw it out to get rid of the bad juju.

Moonpie has returned to her normal self. As long as the Feathered Fiend was out, she was skittish and kept one eye on it. I put it in a closet and will give it to my brother. He has 4 cats.
I still have no idea what got into her. I considered what all of you suggested but I don't think those were plausible scenarios.
Just being a kitteh. Inscrutable.

Moonpie is in the back giving me the eye.

Could We Have The First Named Atlantic Tropical System Of 2016 In January? Jeebus

Yes, I clicked on my Twitter feed and saw a notice from the National Hurricane Center about a subtropical system in the Atlantic Ocean. Aren’t these folks supposed to be heading on vacation or to New Orleans for the American Meteorological Society meeting (#AMS2016)? Yet, the graphic below tells the story.

Lawd! The weather is beyond screwed up.
