Why Ra is what he is..

Picture the scene folks..

In a secret place, a nuclear base is being built, circa 1995..

An accident happens, toxic waste to dispose of, all hush hush..
The guy in charge of disposing of said waste, Oliver Schmitt, a large, dumn specimen of the German colony..... In fear of his life, panics and places the waste in a large garden waste dustbin on the nearest estate..

Two weeks later, a heavily pregnant stray happens to 'nest' below the bin.. Nine kittens are born the next day, the mother is spooked by a commotion the next dayso starts to move the kittens...
Being stupid, she can't count.. Leaves behind one big, fat lazy lump, fast asleep under the old blanket she'd settled beneath......
The following day the fat, lardy, lazy puddytat wakes up.. Hungry and afraid....

Sees something glowing overhead.... Has to investigate, being a nosey little........

The bin is full of a green, flourescent goo, tastes very nice......

Uh oh..................................................


And that is how Ra gained his super powers...

:grin::grin:

His adventures began the very next day when................

    ......the black fur which he had been born with suddenly and inexplicably turned brilliant white and his eyes began to glow in the dark.

    Just to prove it, here's a photo of Ra the Supercat

    This is another photo of the day he discovered that he could fly

    Thank you Joan, I think the dear readers were begin to question Ra's super powers... Lol

    He spent the next few weeks refining his powers until one day a very good looking and rather cool young, hip, trendy & wonderful couple happened upon him.. He instantly fell in life with them & promised to spend the ready of his days with them...
    I'm speaking of course of myself & Janet, just in case some of you fight get that, lol...

    With Tony by his side nothing was impossible... They managed between them to have at least one adventure per week...

    One week, not too long ago actually, they heard of some miners trapped underground in a foreign land..
    "How's your Spanish Tony?" Ra asked.....
    "No est mui bien, lo siento mi Amigo el gato blanco" I replied to him..

    Destination Chile......


    Now, you may have seen the fake reports on the news of the miners being rescued, one by one with some contraption... That was the cover story..
    It was much more daring than that.. But they could hardly show a fat white cat & it's fat white owner burrowing down to rescue them with super strength on the news could they?

    Boy did his claws need a pet-icure after that one :grin:

    After that adventure, Ra became so famous that he had to go undercover (under the quilt on Tony's bed ) and he decided to disguise himself as a rabbit in order to fool the press.

    Although as a Supercat Ra was able to fly through the air with the greatest of ease, he occasionally came to land in some unusual places.

    I wondered why my TV wasn't working properly tonight :shock: :lol:

    As well as a Supercat, Ra is also a Superstar. This photo is from his stint as a movie star. Click on the photo to make it bigger.

    Some random Ra facts:

    He once challenged Arnie to am arm wrestle.. And won.. That's when Arnie came up with his famous "I'll be back" quote.. He was a sore loser.

    He was sat waiting at the peak of Everest when Hillary arrived.. He made him some breakfast.. Continental I think..

    He was the real inventor of the following products etc(I've mentioned before... Cats can't hold patents, bloody fascists at the patent office, playing God :roll: ).........

    Tipex
    The biro
    Those tassels strippers wear
    Rubix cube
    Contact lenses
    Tazors
    Bic razors
    Liquorice
    Deckchairs
    Dave Lee Travis' nickname 'The Hairy Cornflake'
    'The' yellow brick road
    Batman
    Christmas crackers
    The human appendix (just for laughs)
    The five pound note
    Cleo Rocos' chest
    Phone hacking (it was funny at the time)
    Liverpool
    Knitting
    Colonel Gadaffi's rubber face
    Mel Gibson



    And many more...........

    That's quite a catalogue of inventions :!: :lol:

    The phone hacking was a catasrophe though. That was a categorical failure :roll:

    Did he invent the catapult and catnip as well :?:

    That's moggie magic :!: :lol::lol:

    Among his numerous talents as a Supercat, Ra was also a guitarist in a famous pop group known as the Moggies.

    He was the drummer in Catatonia (remember their hit single, Flap Rage?), he designed a range of grooming products called Catacombs, ran a successful gang who stole catalytic converters, tried to develop a range of heating products for moglets called 'Cat-heters' but summat went badly wrong with the protoypes :shock: , administered brickie training courses called Caterwaul and founded a moglet family-tree website called Catkin. His greatest achievement, however, was the paw he had in the development of a range of pleasuring artefacts for lady cats, marketed under the brand name 'Cataclysm'. DD

    Thank you for the offer, my dearest love, but I never have (and never will) 'do' moglets. I just don't get it.

    PS. My mate Lene is grieving, I will buy her a red patio rose in memory of Whisky. Promise. Just 'cos I don't get it don't mean I cannot empathise with those who do.
