    Re: Should I be insulted?

    My wife's cat does the same as soon as I pull it off the wall hangar.

    Re: Storage: Case vs Hanging on the Wall

    Easy access and encouragement to play has mine hanging on the wall out of reach of my boisterous corgi's and my wife's idiot cat.

    I dunno, that dance-off to the death scene in Puss in Boots was pretty darn funny.
