Catty Wampus: Happy Caturday, all!
[i.chzbgr.com image 500x388]


I haven't posted anything here in a long time, but I want to share something special. My hubby and I were inspired by the viral video sensation, Gangnam Style, and decided to make our own parody using our cat, Cruiser, as the star. We have never done anything like this before and we had so much fun shooting it!

I know I'm only a liter, but I hope you all will enjoy our video and share it around - we wanted to see how many YouTube hits we could get, just for fun. We were dared that we couldn't get over 300 hits in a week and we are hoping that with Fark's help - and hopefully Cheezburger will post it, too - that we can exceed that and win the bet!

If you watch it, please leave a comment or like it - we really want to share the laughs and our cat, Cruiser is becoming such a diva that he wants to read his fan mail.

Here's the link to our parody: GangNom-Nom Style!
don't miss the outtakes at the very end!


1. What a cutie.
2. Loved when you made it rain.
3. What did he eat out of the dummy cat's hair?
4. Shining the dome got a hearty lol out of me.

Graffito: They are awesome. I was wondering where they came from. I assume that they turn white in the winter?


Most commonly they do, but there are actually a few variants, the main two being called "white" (or just "normal") and "blue" (which is really more grey-brown with a faint bluish tint). The blue morph is suited for coastlines which don't freeze over in the winter, so it's generally more common on islands than it is on mainland areas. It's particularly more common (though still in the minority) in Iceland, because arctic foxes elsewhere prey primarily on lemmings, but Iceland doesn't really have much in the "native rodents" department, so sea birds and dead fishes that wash up on shore make up most of an Icelandic fox's winter diet. Also, with no polar bears or wolves in Iceland, the foxes there never had much worry about hiding from predators until humans came.

Of the two in the pictures, the staff told me the fox with grey/white patches was probably a white, and the darker one was probably a blue, but since they'd just been born that spring no one knew for sure yet.

mousiebelle: Brian Blessed's Bastard Boy: Mrs. BBBB here. Hubby is in the kitchen making us breakfast this morning, and he left me with the computer. He told me what to do with it, but seeing as how I've never done this before, hopefully I don't screw this up too much. I wanted to thank everyone for all your kind words, encouragement, prayers, and everything else that was sent my way while all this was going on. I know I had it easy, and I honestly cannot believe that honey actually held everything together like he did. He kept telling me that he didn't have a choice, and that when things got bad, he came here on Fark and vented. All of you helped him get through this, and I cannot thank you enough for that. I'm hoping to get on here more often once things calm down around here, but for now, he said to use his screen name and not to screw it up too much. Below is a picture of our first cat, Hattie Marie. She was my baby and a beautiful Russian Blue that turned into a gigantic cat. Sadly we lost her about 7 years ago, but Fat Waffles has taken her role for me. Happy Caturday everyone, I am so very grateful for all of you and all that you have done for my husband, my kids, and for me.

WELCOME HOME!!!! Also, welcome to Caturday :) It's quite the family of crazy people, most of whom have never met, but we are always there for each other! How are you getting along with the new kitteh and ferret? I know BBBB and the kids are taking extra great care of you :) Your family is amazing! **Hugs**


Mrs. BBBB here again. Thank You. Honey is still showing me how to post on here right now. Sake' is the honey's cat. He's definitely not a lap cat, and is extremely vocal. He cries at me every once in a while, but when he's not napping, if honey isn't around, he cries until he finds him. It's driving him nuts because even though I know he loves these critters, he's not one to show it, and he certainly has never had a cat latch itself to him. My little Au Jus is a fireball. She is so hyper when it's time to come out and play. She can jump about a foot in the air when she wants to. Her and Junior Mint are the babies, but Junior is over 5 pounds and dwarfs all the others we have. They both are still babies though, and romp around at play time more than the others. Everything else is going well so far. Honey's mom is helping out so much and I know it's awkward having her in the house with us, I don't think he would have made it through this without another adult here to help him. Pierogi is still my cat, but he's content to tear through the house after his brother most of the time. Waffles is now most certainly mine, and she doesn't stray far from me at all. She never meows or anything, but certainly uses her voice now that I'm back. Below is a picture of her and my dearly departed Lollipop. Those two were great sisters and I know Waffles misses her, but she's slowly warming up to her new sons. Have a great day everyone, it's time to go for a stroll around the neighborhood and meet some of my new neighbors.

Type at vy ft of pg 8 where cat parody of GangnamStyle is linkied to. Can't stop laughing! Am sending my saved comment block to our fave Alien, who seems to be absent once more unless she appears on pg 9 where this will -- Catty Wampi, (plural of Wampus) you both got talent!
I forgot to compliment SenseiKrystal on Shelby's attractiveness as well.
Also forgot briefly to welcome Rufus Lee King back. We do miss you, a whole lot!

MoronLessOff: 3. What did he eat out of the dummy cat's hair?


Thanks for checking it out our kitty video parody and I'm glad you enjoyed it!

On the stuffed cat doll we placed cut-outs of red lips and long false eyelashes out of paper. I guess he thought those eyelashes were spiders, cuz he just kept going after them. We had to stop using the stuffed cat when he chewed them up beyond use!

Btw I forgot to ask everyone before... how do you get YouTube to promote your video or do you recommend any other sites to get hits to our video parody? Does anybody have an "in" at Cheezburger? We've never tried to do anything like this before, but there's a bison steak dinner riding on this bet and we really want to exceed the number of hits our friend scoffed at.

Thank you for any advice!

Great job on the video! hi- la- ri- ous!!! I did take the liberty of "sharing" it on my facebook... or, in this case, mr. micromedic's and left a comment from Jake (our cat) (he's running for President of the United States btw) Hope that is ok?

Our fave Alien posted this Ago.
Catty Wampus, if hits count toward the dinner (no clue what else would) reckon we could pass the linkie around & get folk to Go There, See & Comment. Didn't comment myself as my UTube acct's expired & they don't seem to wish to let me re-up (no clue why).
May try to re-up again, tho maybe not this eve. Have Sing #2 to do & am being collected for that in just under 2 hrs. With 10 Feline Overlords & -Ladies present, some of whom bear large quantities of white fur, it may be best to wait until just before collection to dress for the Sing (black trews required).
Also sposed to go seek some still-missing items, plus finnish wash. & yes I am 50% Suomi Finn via late mother

My first thought upon hearing about the Munchkin cat breed was to wonder if they would have the same back problems Dachunds are prone to have. Hope you can keep the little guy down for a couple weeks so his back can feel better.

From what I understand, Munchkins were bred for a short-leg gene, so their backbones should be as stable as any other cat. Dachsunds were bred for the long-back gene, which causes the swayback issues.

the boys are chiweenie's....doxie chihuahua mixes. he is overweight so we are working on that, he needs to drop 4 pounds so treats are limited, kibble is measured and he WILL get there. I was going to start 1 mile walks tonight but that is out now.

he was curling his back today, I knew he was hurting so thankfully when I stopped at the Vet's office to ask what to do, she said 'bring him in'. he received a short term steroid shot on Wednesday and it stopped helping this morning. This one is more long term.

I hate when any of my furkids is hurting. HATE IT.

btw, he screamed on Monday on our walk when a neighbor was petting him, he was hurting then. By Wednesday I knew he needed to see the mean doctor lady.

he is feeling better now.

The Green Intern: Just got the vet's morning update. They tried to give her a more substantial meal through her feeding tube, but it just made her sick. She's still not interested in eating or drinking. She was supposed to be discharged today, but that's not looking likely. Mrs Intern leaves for a conference tomorrow. I'm scared she won't have a Jenka to come home to.
