This is a wonderful story.

A cat that escaped the evil hold of communism to make way to a better country.

This story seems unlikely to me because cats require a constant supply of arginine. As in, they must have it every day or die.

On the other hand: "[t]heir kidneys are so efficient that cats can survive on a diet consisting only of meat, with no additional water, and can even rehydrate by drinking seawater." source

That might explain how the cat remained hydrated, but... it still seems unlikely to me.

Luckily Ni Hao will only have to do 60 days quarantine. Back A Lifetime Ago when we adopted the late dearly loved Cheeky from Cpl Savage who was serving in the Kings Own Scottish Borderers in W Berlin at the time, & his family, when the regiment was posted to N Ireland, the Savages couldn't afford the 6 month quarantine then required for
entry of the 4 footed (except horses maybe) into the UK.
Madaynun, Sassy's a lovely girl! I've pix of a couple handsome brother cats who live with a fairly famous radio amateur in St Charles MO, also home to the current Barbershop Harmony Society champion chorus
the Ambassadors of Harmony. Those in-a-bit.
Credit to lysderxic. No blame whatever should ensue.

Says in the Fark headline, ...was rescued and is proudly waving the 'Stars and Stripes' as he waits...
Since Plumbicon spent the best (actually!) part of 8 yrs in Govt Service, to wit an Army Pickle Suit, I'm very temped to suggest that the 'Stars and Stripes' Ni Hao is waving is actually shredded copies of the daily newspaper of that name,
provided mostly for US Forces Overseas. Mee-yowr!!!
Now for the radio cats, methinx.
First is Imbroglio, Leo for short & to his friends, who with his littermate bro Dander (in front in next pic which I cropped) supervise the radio activities of their staff person Ward Silver N0AX, who's also on staff at the American Radio Relay League (produces a column in QST magazine & also does the e-mailed ARRL Contest Update each week). The radio supervision pic was in yesterday's Contest Update. Since Ward receives PDFs of both the amateur newsltrs I do,
I e'd him yesterday to offer conga-cats on Leo's good looks.
He returned with the pic of both & the bit more background -- "here are the kitties taking advantage of a temporary perch that took them about 5 minutes to discover and claim Leo's littermate brother, Dander, is closest to the camera. Dander has a little harder coat than Leo and is more inquisitive. But they are definitely big buddies...about 4 years old now".

Last night, friends were visiting. Maggie, a small short-haired tortishell who was found orphaned a week or two before old enough to be weened, was seen with something. Something turned out to be a rather large young bird. This was about midnight. Maggie was removed from the scene, bird was scooped into a baby blanket and gently tossed into a cat carrier which was placed in the bathtub for the night.

In the morning I brought the young bird, dubbed "Cathy" after hubby told me it was chatty, to a local wildlife rehabilitation center. WildCare in Noble, Oklahoma, relies on donations. Turns out, "Cathy" was a young blue jay and did not have any obvious punctures or breaks. I would not be surprised if that bird is grown, released and terrorizing cats by fall.

Hai, folks! It's good to be home! Coming back from a 1000 mile (one way) road trip is the only time I cheer upon entering New Jersey!

You're very welcome! And Alice was gorgeous. She could have been my Dinah's sister. Except that Dinah was born in MD. Not likely, I suppose.

///my Dinah, 17.5 years old. She does have a lot more orange in her coat, even though it looks black in this photo.

Yippee! It's Caturday!

What a sad/sweet story. First thing I thought of when they listed the cat's name was:

/anyone with pre-school aged children hopefully should know who this is...

...oh, and a cat(s):

Great pic. Reminds of the days when we heathens announced our intentions by saying "We'll be outside....SMOOOOOKING."

Time for bed - see you guys tomorrow.

lethological lassie typed in response to GGracie's cat pants, Good Gawd those are AWFUL!!! :) :) :)
That's the point, emphasized both by the text IDing where it came from & the line at the very foot of the pic. I wouldn't even wear those as part of a mis-matched set of PJs even if I were to be paid to do so. ARRRGH.
Tnx yobberys for the lovely portrait of Alice. Good one to remember her by (snif).
Sorry for cause of professional_vampire's road trip (think I forgot to offer condolences) but at least she's back home safely.
Past time for me to turn in, got 2 medical procedures in the AM. Not the ritual 0dark30, but earlier than I'd've liked.
C all y'all later after that's over.
