"Psychological Operations -- the name itself sounds spooky and sinister. The words conjure up images of playing with someone's mind," according to Tales of a War Far Away, and much the same could be said of the way these cats play with our mind in the countdown to supper:
Psy-ops is a fact of military life today -- winning the hearts and minds of the enemy is considered as important as winning that of the general populace. Weakening the enemy's resolve, convincing them that their side is wrong, sure beats blasting them out of their holes with hand grenades. The cost in human lives is considerably less.
Friskies is served.
