Top Cutlines — 6/15/06

In this May 23, 2006 photo provided by Margie Scott, a deer and Scott’s dying cat Sammy touch noses near Scott’s residence near Bellingham, Wash. Scott says her dying cat received comfort in its final days from the deer. Scott says her nine-year-old cat Sammy was diagnosed with kidney failure. You write the cutline/AP Photo.


1. Pictured above are 3 defenseless animals and the latest victims of the Bush Administration’s environmental and economic policies. The deer’s wilderness home was overtaken by new construction and global warming - they now work in a local petting zoo. Sammy the Wondercat, who lived near the Bellingham toxic waste dump, died after ingesting a furball that had been soaking in plutonium — Tinfoilers for Gore in ‘08.

2. When asked what happened to her pet, Margie said “I got two bucks for her”, which seemed to the visitor like a very good deal for a dying cat — John Austin.

3. Hi Sammy, how are you feeling? We heard you had a cat scan — Whatever.
