FOOLS (continued): • When a fire erupted in a shed on a young man’s property, he quickly called 911 to alert the fire department. Apparently he forgot he was illegally growing marijuana in the shed.

• Three janitors at a California high school were attempting to trap a gopher on the loose in the building. After finally cornering it in the school’s utility room, they sprayed it with numerous cans of solvent designed to remove gum from floors. Who knows why, but one of the janitors lit a cigarette in the room, which ignited the solvents. The custodians were blasted out of the room and 16 students were injured. Of course, the gopher escaped unharmed. • Sweet revenge? A jilted Australian woman snuck into the wedding site of her former boyfriend dressed as a gardener, carrying a bucket of fresh cow manure. It was her intention to douse the groom as he prepared to enter the church. However, he was inaccessible, surrounded by friends. She instead opted for the bride and covered the poor woman from head to toe. The culprit was chased down and later pleaded guilty to assault charges and was forced to pay restitution. Her actions did nothing to stop the wedding, however, which went ahead with the bride borrowing one of the bridesmaid’s dresses. • Move over, Orson Welles!

PAW’S CORNER By Sam Mazzotta Cat Washes Paws in Water Bowl DEAR PAW’S CORNER: I have an 11-year-old black cat, “Andie,” who uses her litter box and then right afterward goes over to her water bowl and puts her paws into it. I scold her when she does it, but it doesn’t help. I have to change her water several times a day. How can I get her to stop doing this? -- Betty, via e-mail DEAR BETTY: Scolding won’t help, unfortunately, because Andie either finds this act to be pleasurable or a relief from discomfort. First, there are a few breeds of cat that actually like (or at least tolerate) being around and in water -- including swimming. Andie might have this trait, or she might not. She may just like doing it and has developed a habit of standing in the water bowl immediately after litter box use. If this is the case, you can try placing a tray or bowl of water near the litter box and guide Andie over to that after her toilet, then empty the water until the next time. Or, as soon as Andie gets into her drinking bowl, gently lift her out -- no scolding -- and take the bowl away for

that Andie’s paws are uncomfortable after litter box use. Check her paws, especially between the pads; are there nicks or irritated areas? Is litter embedded between the pads?

• It’s true. Smoking cigarettes can lead to lung cancer. Just ask the families of two men who gained fame on billboards as the Marlboro Man. Former professional rodeo rider Wayne McLaren modeled for the ads in the mid1970s. His pack-and-a-half-a-day habit contributed to his death from lung cancer at age 51. David McLean, who was the Man in the 1960s, succumbed to the disease as well, and his family filed a suit against Phillip Morris, contending that McLean sometimes had had to smoke up to five packs per photo shoot as the cameraman attempted to “get the right look.” FOOLS (continued): • You’re a fool if you believe that it takes two years for your stomach to digest a piece of chewing gum.
