Guess not everyone found the other thread first, I sure didn't. I only ever saw Hank the Senatorial Candidate on Care2Causes, I think, tho now I'm not even sure of that.

Have they started?
2012-03-01 09:26:12 PM  

House not full yet but filling up quickly --
Klippoklondike, I wanted to express regrets on loss, literally, of most attractive young Haven. That word will do for either gender, & I'm at a loss to guess whether it's "pretty" or "handsome".
Went over to The Other Thread & posted one, pic's likely still loaded. Lessee --
Still was, but's a trifle weird. Did crop so it wouldn't look as much like a CADTM.

Still got Editing to do this wkend. Finnished (sic) the local club rag, still have the state women's rag to complete. Not much news from mbrs, but at least this one I haven't a set hard-&-fast deadline. Speaking of which, was advised that the ho-hum Board cussed & discussed previously, rather after I ceased to be Recording Sec, that mbrs should have more time to read the rag before the mtg. So for next time, deadline's pushed back a wk so as to get rag into distrib by 8 days before mtg. Should work.

Happy Caturday everyone!

Caturday "regular schedule": Caturday runs from sometime Thursday evening(for TotalFarkers), posts to Main at 8AM on Saturday morning, and runs until midnight Monday. Please do check it out on Sunday and Sunday night as well, as some of the best stuff, late answers to questions, and of course, some very good CAD™ will show up later than the typical Saturday afternoon.


Take the plunge! post some "blanks" of YOUR kitty and see how fun it is to see your kitty in lights and your family's kitty might get a fun or silly caption of his or her very own!

A detailed "how to post pics on Caturday and on fark in general for dummies" page can be found here
(new window).

Once you get the hang of it, posting pics is very easy, but it can seem daunting if you haven't ever done it before. Take a look at that web page and hopefully it will make sense. there's even a bonus section that shows how easy it is to caption your own pics.


Introduce your new charge(s)! perhaps we can have a naming "contest". Post a pic of your kitty and let everyone make suggestions. Some of the ones Caturday comes up with are hilarious and often very appropriate. My guy, "LittleOne", got his new long name "Jester Lord Fluffy Bottom" (partly mine and partly another lovely farker's - take credit you-know-who!).


Please post details and pose questions. Caturday is a wonderful place to get help as well as have fun. Many of us, having had lots of kitties and having taking care of their lovely and many, many lives and, unfortunately, injuries and illnesses, have become "kitty health resources". Post the issues and we'll all see if we can help.


For those who have recently lost a kitty, please do let us know. Please show us your pics, tell us the story. Sharing helps. A wise person once said "a joy shared is twice a joy, a pain shared is half a pain". Tell us of the lovely times of days past when kitty was around. Tell us of your heartbreak at losing kitty. it's safe around here; no one will judge. most all of us have been there and will sympathize.


there is a fun map that was started by KimJ that shows where various of us Caturdayians are around the globe. to see it and hopefully contribute, go to KimJ's Caturday map (new window)


If you would like to be kept up, just send your fark name and email address to CaturdayOnFark (at) or go to and add your name to the infrequent email list. an email goes out once a week or so with the current Caturday thread and this or that other tidbit of info. please do be sure to include your fark handle.


There is a Caturday Group at sorry, Fark won't let me link. It's where we keep in touch during the Two Day Famine and do general chitcat to keep up with each other

Happee Caturday! I haz a cold, but getting better. Eli says I snore :)
2012-03-01 09:37:51 PM
some post surgery cleaning.
2012-03-01 09:38:52 PM  
Greetings and tuna to all.. home from the brewery at last.. preparing to receive and install some 80 bbl fermenters.. just finished replacing the floor where the tanks will go.. massive cleanup underway.. dust got everywhere in spite of fans and plastic sheeting. It will probably take all next week to finish cleaning....
I have to agree that a cat could do better that what we have now.. they can be retained to clean the litterbox when needed.. of course, they'll have to be told when.. and they can't use it themselves... and they will blame each other when there is a problem......
Hope we hear from Alien this weekend.. miss her greatly.

tigerose: Happee Caturday! I haz a cold, but getting better. Eli says I snore :)

hubby snores too, but only when he's on his back. tell eli that a well placed elbow is neither felt or noticed by the snorer. a little gentle pressure and he rolls right over without a fuss.

Spotted when this wk's Love Meow came in, the headline tail/tale was Puddingwho was the last Caturday tail/tale. If there are indeed 4 versions of Hank The Candidate, then maybe Small Wonder.
Personal Witching & Twitching Hr's here, all are fed who need except the one who lets us sleep with her, & that's next, following this:

Barely. Cleaners are doing an awesome job. Electrician is done. Framing and outside wall are done. Waiting for the carpenter and pellet stove guy to coordinate.

Samson, wondering if he wants to come inside or stay out in the garage.
