I suppose if I'd thought about it for a minute....

The scene: The FOOL, changing shirts after a day of work, pauses to flop on the bed, shirtless. ANGUS investigates.
FOOL: Eek! Angus, don't sniff my armpit.
ME: Oh, don't worry about it. He won't do anything.
FOOL: He'll bite it.
ME: That's ridiculous. Who would bite your ...
FOOL: Ouch!
ME: Oh.
FOOL: 'That's ridiculous, who would bite your armpit' -- how about the guy who bites everything around here?

{snicker!} That really isn't funny...but as we have a cat that likes to chew on chlorine-smelling hair, and had been known to get a bit of scalp in the process...I do see some humor in it. {snort!} No, really not funny.

Are you kidding? Your husband is hot. We've all thought about biting his armpit.

Dunno, Franklin, there's armpit-biting hot, and then there's armpit-avoiding hot. Angus is a cat of rarified tastes.

I imagine household nudity will need to be kept to a bare minimum. No pun intended.

It occurs to me that armpit-biting is probably a recognized practice in the fetish community. There must be a Yahoo! group celebrating it; perhaps even an organization with a local chapter.

If you were to connect Angus with like-minded individuals, thus allowing him to express himself in a supportive and understanding atmosphere, might he not cease to act out inappropriately?

And yes, I'm trying to prolong the conversation on this topic as long as possible.

Well, Franklin, I do understand your point about how people, among a supportive group of their peers, will likely stop "acting out," as you put it. But I must remind you - Angus is a cat. He has no thumbs. He cannot join chat rooms on Yahoo, he cannot call friends for a quick tete-a-tete as regards a sweaty armpit ... he cannot even hitch a ride to a gathering of the like-minded. I know the no-thumbs thing has not stopped Dolores from enjoying a full and colorful social life, but Angus doesn't have the range of public transportation available to us that she does (nor pocket money for cab fare). While I'd usually be happy to help Angus find his peer group, the last time I let him use the Internet, he found friends with different tastes, judging from the spam I now get. I think he has issues regarding that visit to the vet a few months ago.
He's just going to have to get over the armpit thing. It's hot. I want to wear tank tops.

Yes, I have a cat like that, too. Whoever is awake (me, usually) has to watch out for he who sleeps with his arms over his head. Yowch, that hurts!
