I like my cat, though he's no Aslan

Aslan is of course the Lion in the Chronicles of Narnia stories. After seeing the movie my impression of Aslan may have exploited some flaws in my own cat. I like my cat, though he's no Aslan. Here I've listed some major differences between Aslan and my cat, Chesty.

Aslan the Lion

Chesty the House Cat

Aslan rescued Narnia from the evil White Witch, Jadis.
Chesty rescues hairballs from his stomach and routinely vomits them all around the house.

Aslan roared to rally his outnumbered army in an epic battle.
Chesty meows loudly every morning to rally me to fill his bowl with food.

Aslan died to save Edmund.
Chesty acts like he's dying when you pick him up or pet him when he's in a bad mood.

Aslan was a friend to all the animals of Narnia who were oppressed.
Chesty pretends that all animals incapable of feeding him don't exist.

Aslan's power brought Narnia out of a ever-present cold Winter.
Chesty routinely pees on the floor in front of the cold refrigerator.

Cute cat! But why does he pee in front of the fridge?

I wish I knew. It's not like he doesn't use the litterbox or go outside also. Sometimes he just pees in the kitchen.

Maybe he's just lazy.

This post cracked me up. I'm still laughing.

When my black cat barfs up fur balls, he goes backwards in a circle. Weird, huh?

I love the comparison pictures. :)
