The Naming Of Cats by T. S. Eliot
The Naming of Cats is a difficult matter,
It isn't just one of your holiday games;
You may think at first I'm as mad as a hatter
When I tell you, a cat must have THREE DIFFERENT NAMES.
First of all, there's the name that the family use daily,
Such as Peter, Augustus, Alonzo or James,
Such as Victor or Jonathan, George or Bill Bailey--
All of them sensible everyday names.
There are fancier names if you think they sound sweeter,
Some for the gentlemen, some for the dames:
Such as Plato, Admetus, Electra, Demeter--
But all of them sensible everyday names.
But I tell you, a cat needs a name that's particular,
A name that's peculiar, and more dignified,
Else how can he keep up his tail perpendicular,
Or spread out his whiskers, or cherish his pride?
Of names of this kind, I can give you a quorum,
Such as Munkustrap, Quaxo, or Coricopat,
Such as Bombalurina, or else Jellylorum-
Names that never belong to more than one cat.
But above and beyond there's still one name left over,
And that is the name that you never will guess;
The name that no human research can discover--
But THE CAT HIMSELF KNOWS, and will never confess.
When you notice a cat in profound meditation,
The reason, I tell you, is always the same:
His mind is engaged in a rapt contemplation
Of the thought, of the thought, of the thought of his name:
His ineffable effable
Effanineffable
Deep and inscrutable singular Name.

flamingboar: Hey fellow caturday people! May I ask for advice for good cat toys? My cat is bored of the cat nip mice and laser toy. Are there any other types of toys I should try?

I feel bad because he just lays around and sleeps all day, or is up and constantly grooming.


How old is he?

Maybe a check up at the v-e-t.

Buddy.

Cats want to be with him.

Dogs want to be him.

The fourth went fairly well this year for Suzy.

I got some drops similar to Rescue Remedy and started giving it to Suzy on the evening of the third, since neighbors were letting off firecrackers. And we put her Thunder Shirt on. She did very well that evening but the drops gave Suzy diarrhea. Really bad. Really, really bad.

No more drops for Suzy, so on the fourth she just had the Thunder Shirt. I am impressed (pun intended). She was still panting pretty hard and trembling but she didn't run around in sheer panic. She spent the night on the floor right beside me.

Good girl Suzy :-)

Ahhh..Little Guy is napping so I have a little while to play.

Thank you all for the advice. I did say something to the mom this morning, along the lines of "Oh hey, were you going to bring a check tonight when you pick ----- up for last week and this week?" She said yes, no apologies or anything. I'm still not sure what's up as far as her having money issues, or actually forgetting. Whatever. If it happens again, then I'll maybe I'll ask if there's a problem as I don't want this to become an habit. The good thing is that she did refer me to one of her friends. So, yay.

Miss Fiona spent most of the night in her box with Tommy, I am not sure if she wanted his company but she didn't kick him out. Li-Ion could not figure out the attraction, he was interested but he was not about to jump in like Tom.

Tommy really surprised me with his antics. I had no idea he was this fond of a big smelly dog. I have never seen Fiona respond to him in any way or even acknowledge his existence. She did seem more settled when Tom was with her.

Tom was totally at ease with Fiona.

Fiona was not as relaxed with Li-Ion, she had been attacked by miss Cassie too many times and she knows what a kitty can do.

Since I had the dog in that one night I have had problems from Tom.
farm8.staticflickr.com
He is BEGGING to get out, he meows at the door and has began clawing the trim. I saw him with both his paws wrapped around the door knob! He wants to go out and see his dog. He has gotten out twice now. I may build a holster/harness for him and see how he does. I just can't risk him getting out with the neighbors next door.
/Well, it is my day off, it is beastly hot and humid, there are clouds and filtered sun. I'm going to hang out my laundry and play chicken with the rain, wish me luck!

It is called "Fluffy Tortoiseshell Kitten" and I think it looks just like my Abby! I think this kittens name is another Biscuit.

There can be only one!

I'm sorry dear Biscuit! Does it help that it is a girl?

I didn't think so

We we're pleasantly surprised with a very good fireworks display by the country club near my home. We had perfect seats on the back porch. I don't know what everyone else was doing but Biscuit sat happily at the patio door and watched.

Ugh, not a happy 4th in the Queen's home.

I think I mentioned I'm working on socializing a couple of semi-feral kittens for the cat rescue I help with. We were doing really, really good. Well the gray one is still doing reall, really good. I was working with his brother (the brown one) Wednesday. He's fascinated by my hair so I'll let it drop in his face and he's calm.

Well, one of the jackhole neighbors decided to set off some fireworks right outside my window. Now first off, I DESPISE fireworks (which is a story in itself) so I freaked out. So did the cat. I now have a hole in my nose where he latched on and tore a chunk out. Now the poor guy associates being held with explosions and he's a lot worse than he was when I brought him home. 2 weeks or work and a chunk of flesh down the drain. At least he still talks to me, just doesn't want to be held :(

Maine just legalized fireworks this year. Lots of negative incidents this week.

A-holes will be a-holes, one way or another.

They're still illegal in Ohio (beyond sparklers and snaps) but you can go to the store and buy them because you sign a piece of paper saying your "going to take them out of State". Yeah sure.

My negative experience was actually at a professional display and not some drunk going "lookee here"............

Regret hearing 4th didn't go well at TheIceQueen's place due to brown foster cat freaking out
at firewrx & carving TIQ a new nose. Owch. Antiseptic in fair amounts there!
Plumbicon did buy me 2 6-pax of sparklers which Meijer's had. Now my late dad's birthday's over, oh well. this could be a lifetime supply! Pyrotechnic explosions around here do seem to have ceased. It's also quite warm, he says he doubts we'll go to any of the soon Friendship Concerts as there's too much else to do before we need to sing in some. Surprisingly, there are zero on Tue but many Wed, Thu & Fri in various locations. SoundEffects my VyLgQT sings midday Fri downtown along with Canadians, Poles, Chinese & a US religious group for a 2-hr span. Fri are the final Friendships,
then Sat it all wraps downtown for which we need to Be There.
BTW, I have achieved the salsament of last C'day's epic run at last.
Still have rest of Mother's Day to finnish (sic).
