THREE KITTY KOMBATANTS DISPATCH: POINT ARENA, CA, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 31, 11:30AM
first wave of THE SURGE has been successfully completed. The
front line troops, Jack and Jan, have been successfully extricated from
the battlefield (location: latitude 38.4423, longitude: -122.702) and
are once again enjoying the comfort of the Three Kitty Headquarters in
Point Arena for rest and recuperation to prepare for the next battle.
THE SURGE, Jan and Jack were at el-FOT (location: latitude 38.4563,
longitude: -122.673) , in the Forward Observation Tower apartment in
Extensive troop and supply movements were carried
out over the weekend prior to the initiation of the khemical attack in
order to properly prepare the el-FOT facility for use over the expected
4-month duration of THE SURGE. Jack and Jan scoured the
countryside to obtain needed supplies and equipment from indigenous
population and to identify critical supply points for use during the
battle and subsequent recovery operations.
Several key local
resources were quickly identified, including a Chemical Depot
(Walgreens) and several Sustenance Stations (Chinese, Indian, Thai,
Italian and American restaurants and a muffin bakery), all within
walking distance of el-FOT. We expect these will prove very
useful during daily Morning and Afternoon Patrols to assure the troops
are adequately treated. Resupply Warehouses were also located,
all within a few klicks and easily accessible using a Motor Pool
Konveyance (The "Starship Enterprise", Volvo station wagon).
Contrary to the experience at Three Kitty HQ, many of the Resupply
Warehouses (Safeway, Target, Trader Joes, etc.) are staffed and
available 24 hours a day, which may be important during THE SURGE!
Yoda was happy at the Worrying Post (WP) - R&R Center (Bed and
Bone) in Point Arena, where she spent the week playing cards or in deep
concentration planning for a possible escape or the next wave of THE
Commander Blackie, however, in her enthusiasm for battle
and her need to be "close to the action", actually had an anxiety
attack while at the WP. She was quickly relocated by the WP team
to the Feline Troop Rehabilitation Center (vet) in Gualala and got to
spend a few days with Uncle Steve (DVM) and Auntie Jennie in treatment
for battle fatigue. Blackie is home now and medicated.
(Just what this army needs, a neurotic Commander!!)
Commander Blackie and Princess Yoda report that THE LAP has been
thoroughly debriefed by almost continuous interrogation in a tag-team
procedure since THE LAP returned. In fact, several intense
interrogation sessions have proven necessary, when both the Commander
and the Princess simultaneously occupied THE LAP, and entered intense
states of meditation by feigning sleep while telepathically probing for
new intelligence information. Such simultaneous, coordinated
activities of the Commander and the Princess are hitherto unknown in the
Three Kitty Korps as an Earth-size planet is too small for simultaneous
existence of both troops.
Jan was amazed at the effectiveness of
the allied anti-nausea drugs. A weapon called Aloxi was used by
the khemical korps just before they deployed the main khemical attack
weaponry. It seemed to have "kept on working" for several days as
advertised. By then, the expected collateral damage was over and
her upper gastrointestinal tract wasn't too bad.
continues, as well as planning and preparation activities for the next
wave of THE SURGE, which is anticipated in a week or so as the
Kombatants once again are deployed to el-FOT. Readers are advised
to avoid the coordinates given above, as khemical and knuclear weapons
are likely to be deployed throughout THE SURGE. You have been
It has come to the attention of the Command Staff that
not everyone is actually understanding the battle plan as it exists to
date. So, here is the rest of the battle plan in PLAIN ENGLISH:
Tuesday, November 11 - Jan has second cycle of chemotherapy.
Tuesday, December 2 - Jan starts radiation - 5 days a week. She
will live in Santa Rosa with Blackie. Jack and Yoda will be in
(Get it ?? Jan and Blackie get to spend 5
weeks together in Santa Rosa while Jack will have conjugal
visits. The very thought of Yoda traveling gives both Jan &
Jack an anxiety attack.)
Approx. Tuesday, February 24 - Jan has third cycle of chemotherapy.
Approx. Tuesday, March 17 - Jan has last cycle of chemotherapy.
next time, your Three Kitty Kombatants, Commander Blackie, Princess
Yoda, Company Clerk, Chauffeur, Gardener, Computer Technician, Supply
Sergeant, Materials Handling Specialist, Chief Cook and Bottlewasher
