Does anyone here have a cat who:

A) Lets out a weird sort of mournful mew whenever you sneeze, and/or...

B) Starts to bite you if you laugh too hard.

Mine does both. Neither behavior bothers me one bit, they're just perplexing (and hilarious).

Mid_mo_mad_man: Catuday is a fark tradition that needs do go away. Of all the things we could have a weekly thread on why fark cats?


No one forces you to post in the Caturday threads, nor read them. Caturday is here to stay. Deal with it.

Also, while the thread is dubbed "Caturday" you're more than welcome to post pictures of your pets. Pictures of your dog, ferret, bird, fish, lizard, etc. are all welcome in this thread.

Igor Jakovsky: I dont post in Caturday threads often but I wanted to show off teh kitten...

In May when I got him as a rescue:

Now here in September:

I got him as a rescue from a friend whose friend passed away. The man who passed was a cat hoarder and had a shiatload of cats and kittens. So here is Jethro a few months later. Man they get big fast!


Jethro is a handsome fella. :-)

Worst Name I Ever Heard: Salem Witch: I think that about sums up the options.

Three of them are truly pathetic. One is highly unlikely.

Wow, you're actually not even close. I'm sorry to have shat upon this thread -- that was not at all my intention. I was trying to poke fun at the troll. OK, shame on me for feeding trolls, I accept the blame for that. I love Caturday and read it nearly every week. I haven't owned a cat for many years so I'm a little short on material to post.

I guess I missed last week's trolling by that other person, so thought I would make a funny of their stupid comment by using the R.I.P. meme (something many people gripe about needing to go away...get it?) OK, sorry, in retrospect, it was a terrible and inappropriate joke. Sorry. I won't do it again, and I will have no further comments about this topic.


Now, do you have any pet pictures to share with us? :-)

If you've got stuff sticking to silicone pans, there's something wrong. The best I can think of is that you're either baking too hot or not letting it cool long enough before depanning.

Poorly calibrated, ancient gas oven with dead (won't even wake up with new batteries) baking thermometer. Yeah - I may as well be using a wood burning cook stove - and that may even be better than what I have! I love to cook and bake, but my itty bitty kitchen and it's ancient appliances make it less than fun. SOMEDAY... meanwhile, I limit my baking to fraught-with-stress special occasio ...

There are three things I can suggest that might help you there.
1. Analog thermometer. Maybe $10? I don't remember how much mine cost.
2. Find a local building supply store and ask for an unglazed quarry tile. It's a lot like a pizza stone but a lot cheaper. It will take longer for your oven to get up to temperature, but the stone will hold so much heat that it will even out a lot of the temperature changes when the oven cycles on and off. Just lay it right on the bottom of the oven. Not on a rack, on the actual bottom of the oven interior. Should also be about $10, depending on what you get. Make sure it's unglazed or you'll kill yourself and your family. You can just leave it in there all the time, If you get the right thing, no household oven can get hot enough to harm it.
3. Granted this is the expensive solution but... new oven?


Thanks for the suggestions - I'll give 'em a try before my next baking foray. As for the new oven, that is definitely on the list, though not for awhile. My condo was built in 1967 and the only upgrades that have been done were what I've done following water damage sustained from plumbing mishaps upstairs (I figure I need someone to move in with a waterbed and aquarium so I can get upgrades started in my bedroom and living room). I haven't yet upgraded my kitchen appliances, but plan to in a couple years. It is costly and I need to both pay down some existing bills and save up for the shiny new toys!

kevinboehm: OlderGuy: To any Caturdayers in the Richmond, Va. area... My vet has two tuxedo cats she received from a customer that is terminal with diabetus related issues.. they are mother/ daughter, 10/ 8 years old and polydactyl.. and mom has a great 'stache'.. declawed.. spent about an hour with them today.. awesome kitties.. ( I have 9 now, house is crowded slightly..) she would like to find a forever home for them.. preferrably together... definitely have to be indoor cats.. if anyone is interested or knows someone that would be interested, EIP. ( manual entry.. copy/paste won't work.. )

Just to clarify, the customer has the diabeetus, not the cats, right?


Right. The cats are in great health.. their owner, not so much.

The Ice Queen: I just rechecked and it was on her personal page. Basically some tried to mug her and she apparently busted his nose and face up and then sat on him until the cops arrived. Said she broke a rib but she's fine and warning others to not tempt the wrath of the Alien :)


*standing ovation for our Alien*
Kick some ass, girl! Hope you heal up soon. (((gentle hugs)))

Good for Alien.

Last I had heard, she'd just been in the hospital for something or another. She said she had to give up Gremlin. Hope she's doing all right.

May work this time!
Make A Wish Fdtn runs a daily ad in the Cinti Enquirer. Often it's a child like this, but sometimes an adult female, holding a puppy, almost always. Quite grainy & I didn't block out the extraneous text, as for the Guest Night sign for chorus later this month. 2 Guest Nights at remote location, but it's hoped signs won't need reproduced due to rain. Just bet the mktg/PR chair will want the posters printed on big single sheet, rather than in sections & spliced together.

While I really don't bake, I do cook, and IMHO, EVERY single prepackaged/frozen/microwavable product on the market today tends to recommend too high a temperature for optimum results. I always use a lower temperature/shorter time than recommended, and monitor it frequently. I understand about older ovens (I have one), but I have found this to be true even after I had installed a brand new fancy double wall oven (with all the high tech digital crap) when I had my house. YMMV. Or maybe you just don't have the right silicone baking pan :o)
