WELCOME TO A VERY SPECIAL CATURDAY, EVERBUDDY!


For the benefit of those who may not be aware of it, regular Caturday participants domari and cretinbob run Little Mews Rescue, an all volunteer, non profit, no kill cat shelter in upstate NY. They rely strictly on donations, and often cover needed expenses out of their own pocket. These people have saved countless animals, even going so far as to take cats off of "death row" to save them from being euthanized.

Now you have a chance to help them, and it won't cost you a penny! All we ask you to do is click the link, search for Juno (who lives with Caturday regular predle) and vote for her. If she wins, Little Mews will receive $4,500 to assist them in continuing their good work. You can vote once a day until the contest ends, and don't forget to tell all your animal loving family members, coworkers, and facebook friends to do the same.

The Power of CaturdayTM has been able accomplish some amazing things in the past, and I have no doubt that with everyone's help, we CAN make this happen. Thanks to all in advance, and now, on with the show....

I voted too! I'll keep on voting as long as this is open, I appreciate what you two do for kitties!

Now for my feel good kitty story. About a week ago my ex wrote me (we get along fine, we had lots of kitties together, she gave Snuffy his name) about a cat that she was feeding. This cat was trying to get into her apartment, it was obviously looking for more than just the food she was putting out for it. She was wondering if I knew of anyone who might want a cat (hint hint - me). She said she couldn't afford it and she wondered how it would do with her cat. I hated to tell her that I didn't and we couldn't, especially us as our four are just settling back into the routine after Sammy passed earlier this year. Well, she wrote back this week. She'd taken the cat in and taken it to the vets. Turns out the cat was chipped! Kiki cat has been missing since December! He (she?) was reunited with his family after all this time! To get to my ex's apartment from where he came from (turns out they live on the same street we did right after we got married) meant crossing railroad tracks, a good sized creek and a couple of very busy roads. My lesson from this story? Jack, Cisco and Desi have an appointment to get chipped tomorrow afternoon!

To the right of where it says "See the Funniest Cats" there's a box that says "Search Name or Keyword". Put Juno in there and it will take you straight to her. I'm not seeing an option to make it automatically go to Juno's page, but I'm blind as a bat so I may have missed it if there was.

Yay! So happy to hear that Kiki got back with his/her family. Our Tilly was chipped even though she was a 100% inside cat due to her disabilty.

Jack and Gremie aren't talking to me tonite. I put my new air conditioner in today, that means I put Gremie in the bathroom with the door closed because the window was open and I didn't want him sneaking out when my back was turned. Jack got put outside because he likes to help. He tends to get in the way while trying to look over my shoulder while I'm working on things. Gremie doesn't like the new a/c because it sits almost flush with the window and he can't sit on it to look out the top window or moon the dog next door. Jack is thrilled we have air again but he's still mad that he couldn't help put it in.

These 3 are inside cats but I'm worried about an escape. Jack got out twice this winter (I was out there in my bathrobe and bare feet chasing him!) and Desi could easily fly right out an open door. Snuffy at least knows where he lives, but he's going to get chipped the next time he's due at the vet's (he's out of sync with the others), the young ones wouldn't have a clue if they got out and got away.

Not unless I missed something - I tried to have the link go directly to Juno's voting page, but it seems to start out in order of submitted pics (or something), which is why I specified to search for her before voting.

Also, while registration is required (though not on facebook, or so I've been told) I'm pretty sure all you need is a valid email (and we all have lots of those, right?) - I accidentally mistyped my phone number and had no problem *hint, hint*

yesterday only. Tried to snaffle one but Aged Computer That Trusts Noplace & Nobody,
prevented me from completing deal. But at least I got the picture!!!

WELCOME TO A VERY SPECIAL CATURDAY, EVERBUDDY!

For the benefit of those who may not be aware of it, regular Caturday participants domari and cretinbob run Little Mews Rescue, an all volunteer, non profit, no kill cat shelter in upstate NY. They rely strictly on donations, and often cover needed expenses out of their own pocket. These people have saved countless animals, even going so far as to take cats off of "death row" to save them from being euthanized.

Now you have a chance to help them, and it won't cost you a penny! All we ask you to do is click the link, search for Juno (who lives with Caturday regular predle) and vote for her. If she wins, Little Mews will receive $4,500 to assist them in continuing their good work. You can vote once a day until the contest ends, and don't forget to tell all your animal loving family members, coworkers, and facebook friends to do the same.

The Power of CaturdayTM has been able accomplish some amazing things in the past, and I have no doubt that with everyone's help, we CAN make this happen. Thanks to all in advance, and now, on with the show....

Thank you!!!  I was wondering why I was looking at these cats!  I will look for Juno and VOTE!!!!  :D

There's a search box right next to "See the Funniest Cats", Just put Juno in there (her name, not the cat, silly). It's a lot easier than scrolling through all the pictures (over 1,900).


Yeah, I finally figured that out after looking at elebenty-seven kittehs!!  Thanks...will vote again tomorrow.

Been raining here too with more forecast.  Can rain anyplace but Indianoplace (can call it that as I was born there & lived there in college; a pun well-worn with use over decades, not just by moi) Moanday midday.

For rental or streaming? If the latter, probably never. Warner/Universal/MGM streaming licenses expired recently so Netflix lost a considerable amount of content. Warner has their own site now for streaming content.

The only other thing I can suggest is check your local library. I got my copy from ours and frankly, I was disappointed with the movie. Except for the photo showing the cameo scene for Jonathan Frid, Kathryn Leigh Scott, Lara Parker & David Selby in the 2012 Dark Shadows movie, you will not anything else from that movie in my profile.

As far as the God and Goddess hurting you I'm afraid you're on your own.  But Juno wants you to know that she'll be coming after you as soon as I can manage to drag her sorry ass out from under the bed ;)

Not unless I missed something - I tried to have the link go directly to Juno's voting page, but it seems to start out in order of submitted pics (or something), which is why I specified to search for her before voting.

Also, while registration is required (though not on facebook, or so I've been told) I'm pretty sure all you need is a valid email (and we all have lots of those, right?) - I accidentally mistyped my phone number and had no problem *hint, hint*

[i415.photobucket.com image 108x146]

I put in the phone number for my work. Even if it's for a good cause I'm really pickly about who has my cell phone number.


I gave my cellphone # but it's just a Tracphone, I hardly ever have it on, and it's not programmed to take messages. It will save texts, though.

I mow the lawn for several reasons. 1. I do it right. 2. I do not to hound anyone to get it done.3. It is something I can do all alone, and no can talk at while I do it. 4. Hubby has worse allergies than me. I tried to have me son do it one year..it looked like a drunk had been at the lawn! :)

We live in Norman and sirens went off Monday, but we are fine.  Internet connection and phone service went down until after last Caturday was over.

Mom lives in Moore and stayed at work in downtown on Monday until the storms died down.  She got home all right.  House was fine, power and water were out for a couple of days and cats were freaked out about the weather, but otherwise fine.

The In-Laws were also near the path, but also fine.  They have Dayle at the moment.  Mom and I will pick her up Saturday.  It will be interesting to drive out of town for the first time since the storm hit.  I've heard traffic has been rather snarled because of the rescue and clean up.

Good luck to Juno winning her derpy contest!

Hello everybodeee!
 ^-^
='.'=

Wow, this is going to be a popular thread!
Vote For Juno...DONE!

Snuffybud: I voted too! I'll keep on voting as long as this is open, I appreciate what you two do for kitties!

Now for my feel good kitty story. About a week ago my ex wrote me (we get along fine, we had lots of kitties together, she gave Snuffy his name) about a cat that she was feeding. This cat was trying to get into her apartment, it was obviously looking for more than just the food she was putting out for it. She was wondering if I knew of anyone who might want a cat (hint hint - me). She said she couldn't afford it and she wondered how it would do with her cat. I hated to tell her that I didn't and we couldn't, especially us as our four are just settling back into the routine after Sammy passed earlier this year. Well, she wrote back this week. She'd taken the cat in and taken it to the vets. Turns out the cat was chipped! Kiki cat has been missing since December! He (she?) was reunited with his family after all this time! To get to my ex's apartment from where he came from (turns out they live on the same street we did right after we got married) meant crossing railroad tracks, a good sized creek and a couple of very busy roads. My lesson from this story? Jack, Cisco and Desi have an appointment to get chipped tomorrow afternoon!


Good idea...even dedicated indoor kitties might find themselves out in the Great Wide Open.
All mine are chipped- except D'Artagnan. That boy somehow managed to ditch his first chip (they've scanned him repeatedly with no result). Been trying to set up an appointment, but so far 'D'Artagnan is available' and 'chip-giving person is available' have not managed to coincide.

I'm using Chicken Soup For the Cat-Lover's soul for my clowder. It's a tad spendy (I pay $27 for an 18lb bag) but they love it, their weights are within 'acceptable' range, eyes are bright, coats GLOSSY and they have lots of energy (well, for cats, it's lots...).
Figure if I spend a bit more now on food, I won't have to spend a LOT more down the road to deal with poor health issues caused by cheap food.

DAMMIT DAMMIT DAMMIT...Is anyone else having the text box 'jump' back to the top every time you try to scroll down to where you're trying to type? I scroll down and it jumps back up the second I take my hand of the button! Swear I'm spending more time scrolling than typing!
GRRRRRR!

Bathia_Mapes: John Buck 41: Bathia_Mapes: Okay, I voted. Will vote again tomorrow.

Any idea why it's taking so long for  Dark Shadows(2012 movie) to show up on NetFlix?

For rental or streaming? If the latter, probably never. Warner/Universal/MGM streaming licenses expired recently so Netflix lost a considerable amount of content. Warner has their own site now for streaming content.

The only other thing I can suggest is check your local library. I got my copy from ours and frankly, I was disappointed with the movie. Except for the photo showing the cameo scene for Jonathan Frid, Kathryn Leigh Scott, Lara Parker & David Selby in the 2012 Dark Shadows movie, you will not anything else from that movie in my profile.


I was hoping for streaming. I was aware that Netflix recently massively cut their library. I'll probably just try to find a used Dvd at the local indie music/video store. I wasn't crazy about the movie but enjoyed the Maine angle and thought Depp was great.

OK, I have a non-cat related question...figure Caturday People are such a mixed community with a HUGE amount of 'Been there, done that' experience.
The (short) story: Having some dental work done, going to be getting a partial (it will be nice having BOTH sides of my mouth available for chewing again).
Decided that maybe some whitening might not hurt the situation. Went to apply the stuff, and my REMAINING FRONT TOOTH MOVED.
Hit the panic button, call the dentist, banzai down to the office, tears, x-rays...'The bone looks fine. It's the ligament that's loose.'
Teeth have ligaments? Who knew? This is good...well, opposed to losing more teeth, it's good. Now the query.
Aside from 'Tincture of Time', how does one convince a static ligament to tighten up?

Really did intend to compliment W A Wayne on Stinky's good looks, even if derpy under the Santa hat. If/as you 2 are fond of each other & he's agreed to let you live with him, who could ask for much more.
Pleased/relieved to hear all are safe, well or recovering, as of current reports & retorts.
Time for me to pack it in for the eve.  Plumbicon took this on his phone (mine doesn't do that or anything but handle phone calls, doesn't even record for me at chorus rehearsals as almost everyone else's does) & finally transferred it, now that everything new must go into 1 folder per drive until the Great Migration happens.

Furry furrthest left & sons Yakko & Wakko awaiting a meal, in formation. Quite likely a lunch. Plumbicon gets credit; he's rarely vertical & rational for their breakfasts.  Got Yakko one of those eat-slower bowls with big raised area in center; makes little difference. We still get wet chow-deposits-cum-hairballs as he still manages to gobble.
Until the daylit AM, adieu.

Indeed I was. He's currently napping on the new blankie my daughter got him, also has a brand new litterbox just for him and a fancier water dish that keeps the bowl nice and full for him. He's sequestered from the other kitties for a day or so, but keeps trying to escape into the outer realms of the apartment. One of the other kitties was hissing at him through the door. They're all like "why'd you come back? You smell funny!"

We have a lot of goals, we still need to raise money to buy a building for an adoption center which is taking forever. Again,  one of the buildings we liked had someone  else put an offer on it. We see places we like and watch them get bought by someone else because we haven't been able to raise the money for it yet. It's very frustrating to have a head full of ideas for a great adoption center/thrift store and no place to put my ideas to work.

Winning the $4,500 prize would be a huge help!!

Thanks, that would be very helpful. This time of the year we get overwhelmed with kittens and the costs vet care. The momma cats and kittens we wind up with are usually not well cared for or in the best of health. Our vet bills are outrageous, kitten season drains our bank account quickly.

Just this past week has been another crazy one. I was contacted by someone who's kids heard kittens in a dumpster near her apartment. She crawled into the dumpster and found three little kittens she guessed to be 3-4 weeks old. We have a momma cat with kittens a week older, so the kittens were put in with her and the momma cat took them on as if they were her own. They're all doing great now. One of the kittens only has 2 toes on each of it's back feet, Cretinbob posted a photo of the kitten, it's adorable even with it's weird little feet.

Last weekend I posted about going to help out an older guy who was very poor yet loved his cats very much. Since he couldn't afford to spay/neuter them, they had kittens. We took in 7 kittens, several have eye infections, one of them is pretty bad. They had to go to the vet, be tested for feline leukemia/FIV and get antibiotic ointment for the eyes. Tomorrow we're going back to the man's home to take some of the other 10 cats he needs to rehome.

Then one of the pregnant cats decided to have her kittens, gave birth to a stillborn at 1:30am, I stayed up all night waiting for the rest of the kittens, nothing...
In the morning, she still didn't have any more, by the afternoon she acted as if she wasn't in labor any more so we had to take her to the vet for a c/section. The vet removed 3 dead kittens and one live very small kitten. The mother cat didn't want to take care of the kitten after her surgery so we put the kitten in with another cat who just gave birth two days prior. That mother cat took on the little kitten and even though my expectations of the kitten surviving weren't high, it's still doing ok. Cretinbob posted a photo of the tiny kitten in his hand, that's the sole survivor. An expensive c/section for the cat and only one kitten who might not make it. Momma cat is doing great and will be ready for adoption when she's healed from her surgery.

Yesterday we got a call from someone who found kittens under the steps of an vacant building she owns. Not the most friendly little ones, they had to be trapped. Their mother is being elusive and avoiding the traps. The kittens are old enough to eat solid food but they still need their mom. We couldn't leave them where they were, they're very close to the road and it's in a not so nice place.

Who knows what else tomorrow will bring. The phone will start to ring first thing in the morning with someone with cats and kittens that they don't want anymore. We're getting pretty filled up, I have fosters who are also running out of room. If we run out of money and space for the kittens to go I have to put them on a waiting list. If people don't want to wait they'll just dump the cats and kittens on back roads to fend for themselves or bring them to the local shelter which is a kill shelter. It's never ending vicious cycle.

 Syndactyly
There are two toes on each foot, I think that's what I can see. There are definitely two claws but there isn't a lot of space between the toes.

//now I know where some cats get their extra toes from

I've heard of polydactylism, but... uh, monodactylism?

 Syndactyly
There are two toes on each foot, I think that's what I can see. There are definitely two claws but there isn't a lot of space between the toes.


Well, there's the new thing I learned today! I can go to bed now :-)

Way late, time for sleepies (according to the cats it's really time for gooshies, but they can wait a few more minutes)... Finally kinda sorta caught up for the moment.  I did vote.  Love that pic of Juno!!

Cassie has magically sprouted behind-the-ear tufts over the past month or so.  I did take pics, but it'll have to wait until I wake up tomorrow.  Any idea why this would happen??  Kinda weird.  She reminds me of a mad scientist with the fuzzed out hair!

Wish us luck!  Not only are we in the middle of custody crap for the guy's kid (lotsa bad stuffs going on), we're also in the middle of waiting to see whether we are approved for our business loan & are going to look at a potential store location tomorrow morning!  Lots going on in the mousiebelle household right now!  I'll update tomorrow and upload pics of Cassie's new fur :)

Good Meowning!I hope you slept well! Eli kept me warm all night long. At about 2:00a.m. He decided he needed to be under the covers. His fur was cold! But that is ok..his purr was very warm.

Cute pictures, Cretinbob!  Do you think this one will have any problems walking as it gets older??  Knowing how animals adapt, I would guess not.

Juno's going to celebrate by spending the day lounging in the sun, of course that's pretty much how she spends every day.

credit Tasha or Tashab, not sure which. One'll taste like chicken, mayhap both by now. Catptioned by moi.


Type at ft of pg 3. Hope someone gave dopekitty74 FB link to voties page, not something I can do. Swore  I wouldn't do FB, tho Plumbicon does for various alumni reasons.

Young-looking visiting jellicle came by again about an hr ago.  Quite attractive, need to grab a pic sometime.  Suspect he/she lives in Feral Barn on next road over.  We highly suspect Furry came from there, GangOf5 may have been fetched from there by some hoo-mon, bet Piiki lived there after she left the folks she mistakenly let live with her.
Have some correspondence to enact for lilyspad; compliment her here also for cute bird near top of page & .gif cat with hearts in eyes & stripey background.
& linkies!

Comment below vid that it's not wise to train young 'un to play rough like this, will be dangerous when she grows up.

//now I know where some cats get their extra toes from

Cute pictures, Cretinbob!  Do you think this one will have any problems walking as it gets older??  Knowing how animals adapt, I would guess not.


That first tiny kitten cretinbob was holding almost made me cry. His story reminds me of Delta's...only tiny survivor of her litter, too.
Hope the little guy makes it to a loving home. Can't adopt any more cats if I ever want to see D'Artagnan again... :-P
He hisses at the other cats if they're less than 5' from him. Thankfully, their reaction is on the order of 'Meh..whatever'

Bit of a storm last night. For some reason, it seemed to upset Wimsey. His body language was tense and wary...and talk about needy? I couldn't go anywhere in the house without a big white furry shadow. He's 6 years old, so it's not like this was his first thunderstorm...
and it wasn't a really intense one either.

D'Artagnan checked in, wanted his supper. He kept shaking his head when I gave him the asked-for skritches, so I checked his ears.
I do not know what he gets into, but he gets the nastiest stuff in there...I won't go into detail- don't want to cause coffee regurgitation.
Cleaned them out, put in some miticide. About a half-hour later, I gave him more skritches...and there was no head-shaking.
Nice to get something right now and then...
