Salem Witch: Colin O'Scopy: Lets all analyze this:

How many letters from the word:

CATURDAY

Do you need to make the word:

Dog

?

Oh wait, there IS no "DOG" in "CATURDAY".

We can vote and see who stays and who goes. You or Suzy.

Or you can report me for daring to post pictures of dogs in a cat thread.

Or you can put me on ignore so I no longer offend your delicate sensibilities.

theurbanpagan: Hello all. I'm a long time lurker in the Caturday threads (and Fark as a whole). I wanted to tell you about my new kitty. But of course I have to tell you about my old one first.

Trouble was 13 when she passed away last year in July. One Saturday we knew something was wrong. By the following Tuesday we knew she was suffering from total renal failure and we had to let her go. This is Trouble:

[img543.imageshack.us image 480x320]

[img39.imageshack.us image 316x297]

She was 13 when she passed. She left behind Fang (on the right):

[img35.imageshack.us image 473x171]

So last week Mr. Urbanpagan and I decided it was time for a new kitty. Fang was looking pretty lonely and well, it was just time. We went to the Wake County Animal Shelter in Raleigh, NC to look at another tortie that was there for adoption and we came home with Shannon:

[img195.imageshack.us image 584x800]

Based on the paperwork we got with her, she was originally adopted as a kitten about six or seven months ago. She was returned to the shelter about two weeks ago. Even though the shelter put her at about a year, her paperwork shows she's barely 10 months old.

So now our house is filled with much hissing and we've gotten very little sleep because she just wants to play and headbutt you and purr and snuggle and play and tear around the house and use your stomach as a springboard... :P She doesn't talk as much as a Tortie but she does meow-growl when she talks. She heels and follows us everywhere we go. She likes to snuggle and will perch on the armchair next to us while we're at the computer. She's settling in nicely. Fang is still not happy about her being here but I know that takes time.

Now we just need to figure out what her name really is. She's not a Shannon. She just doesn't answer to it or act like a Shannon. So far we've come up with:

Growly McFluffytail
Goat Squirrel
Princess Headbutt
Thumbs
Terror
Dame Cranial Trauma

I'm up for any more you might suggest. :)


Cats will do things to let you know what their name will be....

OlderGuy: SumoJeb: I get to spend my Caturday repairing my truck... dog decided to chase a chipmunk under the truck while we were camping.. chipmunk hid in the undercarriage and dog tried to dig it out... now my speedometer and odometer dont work... :P haha

Speedometer cable goes into the side of the transmission.. it got pulled out.. minor repair..

After my Snoopy died last year, it only took us a month to adopt a new pair of kitties. But it was somehow still painful to visit the caturday page till today.

So now that I'm back I'd like to introduce:

Mama (aka munchie, cookiepuss and cookie):

and her considerably more evil daughter Snudgie (aka Fudgie, monster, missy, and 'pure evil')

Sillygoth: Eventually it will come to you, and it will fit like a glove. Every cat that has graced me with their presence goes through multiple names until one finally sticks. I've never liked any "Shelter names" because they lack originality in most cases.


Same here, but we kept the boys' names 'cause they actually did seem to fit. Sonny is my fuzzy Sonny-bunny, and Sassy is my cuddly Sassy-pants. :)


Aloy: After my one male cat had a urinary issue, everyone got switched to canned cat food to increase water intake, since the little farkers don't drink water. A good suggestion I saw was having a fountain, since critters like drinking out of running water.


Water fountains are goooooood. When we switched the boys over to one from a bowl, they damn near tripled their intake in that day alone.

It's been busy-crazy in the Squirrel household. I've been AFC (Away From Caturday) 'cause of military duties, as well as helping my husband get our figurative ducks in order for a household move. He picked up a job with Western Digital, yay! Now we get to try to find a home in the East Bay that won't break the bank. Anyone know of something inexpensive in the Fremont/Dublin area? :P

In Caturday news, Sonny has been obscenely adorable. On Wednesday, I was feeding my World of Warcraft addiction when Sonny called to us from the living room, with a meow that sounded weird for him, not his normal mrrrrr-ah. I went to see, and saw that he'd caught this:

i60.photobucket.com

At first I thought that his new toy had run out of fun, but it darted under the china hutch as soon as he prodded it again. This was apparently the effect that he had desired, because he managed to crawl under the hutch to chase the lizard, which ran back around and was trapped in the corner again. He batted at it a few more times, quite pleased with himself, and I petted him and told him how much of a great white hunter he was. So very pleased with himself! Then, in the one moment that he looked away, the lizard made another break for freedom and dashed under the piano. Sonny looked down and thought that it had disappeared under the carpet or something, because he sat like this for a good fifteen minutes, plucking at the corner of the rug.

i60.photobucket.com

I imagine that when we move, there will be a dessicated, mummified lizard corpse under the piano, and a very, VERY happy spider in a corner web.

Well, gotta finish lunch-munchies and run some errands, will be back. In the meantime, I leave you with diabeetus-inducing pics. I could fill half a hard drive with photos of him sleeping!

Kittahinaborx: I've only had two cats in my whole life one is an inside cat and one was an outside cat I was about 10 or 11 his name was Sammie (he was a tabby with a bob of a tail , we now think he may have been a Pixiebob). He was the outside cat since my mom hated the idea of an inside cat. Unfortunatel, like all outside Tom cats he liked to roam and one day he never came back , we never did find that cat :(.

This little lady is Reecee she is our family house cat who thinks she is royalty, but is a sweetheart besides that. She doesn't like very many out animals and freaks out sometimes at my MIL when she comes over. SIde note: My MIL owns about 5 cats, so we think she was freaking out about the smell of the other cats around her....but I like to think Reecee was just defending me since I'm her favorite ...sometimes.
Leaving her pic here for all to see:

This has not been a kind last couple of years for the 7th Son family. Last year one of my mother's cats, named Beemer, passed away at the age of 22. This year her Maine Coon named Kenny passed away at age 21. Beemer's half-sister, Blossom, is still with us at age 23. I was 13 when my mother got Beemer and Blossom. I'm almost 37 now. Beemer's passing really hit me hard. It's just when something is a part of your life for so long you don't think about when it's time for them to pass on. Thankfully Blossom's still in good health considering. Still uses the litter box without a problem, but I think she's going deaf because she is one LOUD kitty. Her meow is enough to pierce kevlar. Got a healthy set of lungs though, and I know I'm going to be a complete wreck when she passes. I almost stopped talking to one of my friends when Beemer passed cause he said "It's just a cat." That's one thing that pisses me off to no end. It's NOT just a cat. I've been around cats my entire life (Have 4 of them myself) and the emotional bonds I have with them supersede the bonds I have with humans. Thankfully all of mine are under 5 years old. I hope to have them around as long or longer than my mother's cats were around.

I'm sorry for your losses; growing up with them, they must have seemed like little furry siblings. But what amazing long lives! I just googled a cat age calculator, and a 23 year old cat is 109 in people years! And I thought my Dinah was old at 17. She, too, is either getting deaf or senile, or both. VERY loud, random meowing and calling, at any time of day OR night. But she's been with me since she was 6 months old; it will be hard when she moves on to the next world. We've been through a lot together. She even flew from MD to FL with me.

Awwww, thank you both. {cyber hugs back} That is so so true, nothing like coming home to an army of cats after a shiatty day at work, lol. Dinah's beautiful! Sounds like what Blossom does, random very loud, very grating meows. I wouldn't have it any other way though. My mother had both Kenny and Beemer cremated and probably will do the same for Blossom. I'm thinking about getting a urn and engraving it with this :

You have crossed over now,
into the spirit realm.
May you walk with Bast,
and I will see you again some day.

Mother Earth, we return to you
the body of one of your children.
Her spirit will return to her ancestors,
and she will continue to live in our memories.
We are thankful that we were able
to share our lives with her,
and give her to your loving arms.

Bast, Sekhmet, we give you back your child.
Noble, regal, honorable cat.
Watch over her, and guide her on her way
to the spirit world.
May she be blessed in your names,
and hunt ever after beside you.

Might be a bit pricey but I think it's worth it.

Has she had her thyroid levels checked? Loud meowing is a symptom of hyperthyroid. Hyperthyroid can cause heart problems so it's best to get the kitty checked sooner rather than later.

That's one thing that pisses me off to no end. It's NOT just a cat. I've been around cats my entire life (Have 4 of them myself) and the emotional bonds I have with them supersede the bonds I have with humans. Thankfully all of mine are under 5 years old. I hope to have them around as long or longer than my mother's cats were around.

It's never easy to loose a friend or family member because that us what every pet is. They are family and friends because they are the only ones you can tell all your troubles to and they don't judge you for it they just let you work it out for yourself. They can cheer you up when your feeling down and when you feel great they just share in your joy. When you have any pet that makes it to what my family calls the "bonus years" you enjoy the extra time that they have given you. As for as anyone who says " It's just a cat" they have never known the joy of having a pet and until they do they will never understand so just ignore them.
Always remember the joy they put in your heart, that is all they ever wanted besides more gooshy food.

Colin O'Scopy: Lets all analyze this:

How many letters from the word:

CATURDAY

Do you need to make the word:

Dog

?

Oh wait, there IS no "DOG" in "CATURDAY".

Debby7813: 7th Son of a 7th Son: This has not been a kind last couple of years for the 7th Son family. Last year one of my mother's cats, named Beemer, passed away at the age of 22. This year her Maine Coon named Kenny passed away at age 21. Beemer's half-sister, Blossom, is still with us at age 23. I was 13 when my mother got Beemer and Blossom. I'm almost 37 now. Beemer's passing really hit me hard. It's just when something is a part of your life for so long you don't think about when it's time for them to pass on. Thankfully Blossom's still in good health considering. Still uses the litter box without a problem, but I think she's going deaf because she is one LOUD kitty. Her meow is enough to pierce kevlar. Got a healthy set of lungs though, and I know I'm going to be a complete wreck when she passes. I almost stopped talking to one of my friends when Beemer passed cause he said "It's just a cat." That's one thing that pisses me off to no end. It's NOT just a cat. I've been around cats my entire life (Have 4 of them myself) and the emotional bonds I have with them supersede the bonds I have with humans. Thankfully all of mine are under 5 years old. I hope to have them around as long or longer than my mother's cats were around.

I'm sorry for your losses; growing up with them, they must have seemed like little furry siblings. But what amazing long lives! I just googled a cat age calculator, and a 23 year old cat is 109 in people years! }


4.739? I had no idea.

theurbanpagan: Hello all. I'm a long time lurker in the Caturday threads (and Fark as a whole). I wanted to tell you about my new kitty. But of course I have to tell you about my old one first.

Trouble was 13 when she passed away last year in July. One Saturday we knew something was wrong. By the following Tuesday we knew she was suffering from total renal failure and we had to let her go. This is Trouble:

She was 13 when she passed. She left behind Fang (on the right):

So last week Mr. Urbanpagan and I decided it was time for a new kitty. Fang was looking pretty lonely and well, it was just time. We went to the Wake County Animal Shelter in Raleigh, NC to look at another tortie that was there for adoption and we came home with Shannon:

Based on the paperwork we got with her, she was originally adopted as a kitten about six or seven months ago. She was returned to the shelter about two weeks ago. Even though the shelter put her at about a year, her paperwork shows she's barely 10 months old.

So now our house is filled with much hissing and we've gotten very little sleep because she just wants to play and headbutt you and purr and snuggle and play and tear around the house and use your stomach as a springboard... :P She doesn't talk as much as a Tortie but she does meow-growl when she talks. She heels and follows us everywhere we go. She likes to snuggle and will perch on the armchair next to us while we're at the computer. She's settling in nicely. Fang is still not happy about her being here but I know that takes time.

Now we just need to figure out what her name really is. She's not a Shannon. She just doesn't answer to it or act like a Shannon. So far we've come up with:

Growly McFluffytail
Goat Squirrel
Princess Headbutt
Thumbs
Terror
Dame Cranial Trauma

I'm up for any more you might suggest. :)

WonderStuff: All my cats are indoor. Yesterday, as my roomate drove up from work, she noticed this jerk pissing right on my front door!!!! I had noticed my front door smelled of cat pee, but thought it was just us being lax with the boxes - but you do not smell it inside. How do I discourage this guy? I don't want him upsetting my cats.


At first, I really did not notice the cat in your pic, and I was wondering why some strange guy would be peeing on someone's door. I'm not feeling too well today and I attribute my lack of reading comprehension to insufficient sleep. Meanwhile, this is an actually product...
