Lenin’s Cats


"Don't trust anyone who doesn't like cats."


But does that imply "Trust everyone who likes cats"...?

Was Lenin famously untrustworthy, or something?

Some say yes:


"His writing on Lenin portrays Lenin as 'merely a psychopath to whom ideas barely mattered and whose only motivation is to dominate and to kill.]"

Didn't they name a building after him after he did something good?

Some say no
Pipes has never had a reputation for being trustworthy or unbiased.

Awwwwww... Who would have thought that Ilyich had a soft spot for the kitties.

It does imply not to trust humans under the cats mind control tests.

I think Patty's cat Toby is a descendant of on of Lenin's kitties.

His real is name: Tobias Carlos Lenin

The black and white kitty looks like my Toby. He is not a communist his loyalties go to the best petter with the most treats and that is capitalism!

Those pictures of Lenin remind me of Ernst Blofeld in the Bond movies.

I still think you should try putting out some borscht and vodka Patty and see if he goes for it :D

(Thanks for trying to edit my spelling error of on to one. How about an edit feature for at least mods Paul ?)
