But at least Caturday's here at last! -- even with Zilch Voties pro or con so far.

For those that didn't check the Caturday thread on Sunday evening, we had to say goodbye to Jenka Sunday morning. It was fast for her, which I suppose is a blessing. Maxim has been beside himself the entire week, crying and trilling and looking for her in all her usual hiding places. I found a plush cat that looked kind of like her and picked it up as an impulse buy, but he's adopted her. Pretty sure he needs a new companion to maintain his sanity.

yfrog.com

Mrs Intern and MadAnimalScientist Have been trying to bolster the spirits, but morale is still pretty low. We're going to the Animal Rescue League on Saturday and see if we can find a new companion for Maxim. Someone who knows how to put him in his place when need be.

Here he was at five months when we first adopted him. He was about the size of a beanie baby.

a.yfrog.com

What a difference a year's made. He's half-moose. The vets at the hospital call him "Teeth" and have asked to take DNA samples to see if he's actually a miniature saber-toothed panther. (only half-jokingly. It took five students to hold him down for vaccinations last month.)

We're comforting each other as best we can. Like I said, it still hurts, but it comes and goes. We're taking her ashes up to my family's farm in North Iowa when we get them back. We'll scatter them in the hay loft where there's plenty of mice, birds, and places to climb and hide. It's also where a lot of the new kittens are born, so we thought she'd have fun there.

Thank you again, everyone, for your kind words, support, happy thoughts, and well-wishes. It's helped.

Evening, all! Thank Ceiling Cat it's Caturday! I've been off work this week but I swear I've worked harder at home than I would have at Mordor! It's a biatch getting ready for a party! Anyone in the North Jersey area is welcome to come by Saturday evening (just let me know you're coming! ;-P).

Got a trash can outside by the mailbox... anything political goes directly into it.. If the phone rings and I don't know the number shown, a quick answer/ hangup happens.. that way, whoever is calling pays for the call.. don't watch TV.. skipped the last few NASCAR races due to commercials.. got home early yesterday, 15 minutes later there were three people at my door wearing 'O' shirts.. walked out the door with the 12 gauge.. they left.. quickly.... not a word was said.... got too much to do to hide.. it will be over soon... thank God !!!!

I've wondered if anybody else's poly walks weird. Jack points the main section of his toes (the portion a normal toed cat has) outward. It looks like he's spreading his weight across all his toes, but it makes me wonder if he's twisting his lower legs. It doesn't seem to bother him, he barrels around here more than any of the other cats. I'm just wondering if he's going to have paw and leg trouble when he grows up. He's going to be a big cat when grows up, he's over 10 pounds now and he's not quite 9 months old!

Thanks. I was down with the cooties and slept for most of last week. It'll be two weeks this Sunday and I'm just starting to feel human again. Still coughing my arse off..

The Winking Lizard is teh awesome! Good food, good beer. One of the bf's and my favs when we are in the Cleveland area.

My foster kitties are leaving Tuesday. They've gotten so big! Not sure who will miss them most-me, my daughter, or my boys!

Hello everybodeee!

 ^-^
='.'=

Hope there are fewer sads this week...and that those who are experiencing them find peace and healing.

Hope that when this %$#&(@# election is FINALLY over they will give us at least a week off from campaigning.
In 2008 we were not even given ONE DAY's respite.

Anybody besides me had ENOUGH?

*steps back from keyboard, deep breath*

Caturday. Cats. Right....
Knew D'Artagnan was a clever kitty, but didn't realize he was scary smart. He wanted to go out through the window. Didn't want to wait for me to open it, so he opened it himself.
Not by muscling it open via brute force (of which he is quite capable), but by pulling one of the strings hanging from the (shredded) screen inside, catching it in his teeth, and LIFTING the window sash.
That is 'tool-using behavior'.
Seems they don't need opposable thumbs after all.

I blame my neighbor. He fixes cars and the cats like to watch him (and he gets a kick out the feline audience). Think they learned about 'tools' and stuff from him.

I suspect she will release herself!

I had a friend in grade school who had 6 toes on her left foot. As far as I know she still does. It's not like you can go up to her at the class reunion and ask "Do you still have an extra toe?" If she's Fark I could get away with it otherwise it would be rude.

Okay guys...I tried, I really did! I even brought in a ringer! A kid from work who is a WHIZ with compooter stuff, and I still can't post pics!

Why does it have to be so hard? Sigh... I guess I will just have to rely on the kindness of strangers to post pics of my Lily.

Oh! And Happy Caturday!!!
