QJ...how is your little "porch buddy" this week? Still coming by for bologna???? :D

I sprung for some dry cat food, so no more bologna for him.
We had a storm overnight and it blew a tree down across the front walk, right
at the bottom of the porch steps. I went out to see what was going on, and he
was sitting at the top of the steps trying to figure out what happened.
Then he looked at me with an expression that said
"I didn't do it, honest!"
"Please don't kick me out!"


We had a funnel cloud and a tornado over here today.

Not in Salem but not that far away.

Faust was our box loving cat. And drawers. You couldn't open a drawer without him hearing and jumping right in. The other 2, not so much. Every once in a while, I'll find him in the box that I have for them in the kitchen. I don't think I've ever seen Racer in a box

Echo pleasure valnt9's back, from ft of pg 2.
Purramedic kitteh fetched by gremlin1 on pg 1's going shortly to chorusmate Dina, who is one & is owned by at ,least 2 felines. She said what variety her owners are, but all I recall is "longhaired".
Our owners aren't thrilled by boxes, mayhap because they don;t get regular exposure to them.  Might be if we let 'em have some...

Thought he needed a lil' Wolf Hat, so I gave him a lil' Wolf Hat committed by Jonra 1st on reddit then to imgur.  lilyspad may've brought this too, there are at least 3 good kitteh pix over yonder.

nekom: Hey cat folks!  My last childhood pet I'd had since I was 12 crossed that rainbow bridge a few years ago, after nearly 20 years on this Earth.  She was a pure white cat, unknown breed from a stray litter born outside of a video store my aunt worked at at the time.  My daughter is half the age I was then, but I want her to have a similar experience.  So here's my question:  Keeping in mind that I will ONLY consider rescue/shelter animals, what traits should I look for in a cat to have the best chance at a long life?


Cats, like hoomins, unfortunately do not come with a warranty. IMO, all you can do is give them the best care possible, and cherish the time you have with them - it's always going to be shorter than we might wish for. Each day is a gift, that's why it's called the present.

Scampi bidding all a Goody Night, late last year. Credit BBBB.   My turn to do that too, once I send Dina that pic from pg 1.
Plumbicon's chorus show is Sat, matinee & evening; tech/dress reh tomorrow eve.  He has an Event to staff at Lodge Sat eve so won't be in the video recording Intercommunity Cable Regulatory Comm will make.  3 volunteers have ariz to be Event Staffies, he's rather pleased with 2 & will take the 3d, only a little  grudgingly.
I'll be working both shows, can get lift home with chorusmate Marcy who owns coupla goggies & is owned by coupla cats & has announced plans to come in eve. Get mayhap ridiculous number of lifts from her, for which I'm thankful. Normal strike of everything including sound gear (provided by Pl) is traditionally Sunday.
Alla that  means less time here, which comes with territory.  Until Daylit Tomorrow --

Big Drawer...


Buzzbomb was the drawercat here.. none of the others seem interested.. she could pull the center drawer ( on the desk) open far enough to get in it, and then disappear.. open the bottom drawer and there she was.... if you closed all the drawers, after a few minutes the center drawer would open about halfway and she would be on her back pushing against the top drawer for leverage... she could get into just about anything.....

Meanwhile, Dragon asked me to remind you that YOU promised him General Tso's shrimp when I got my 100th. After I explained that the new spuds you made for him are in transit, he is a bit confused - he really wants a new potato, but I think he is also a bit disappointed that there will not be any chicken wings in spicy garlic sauce being delivered anytime soon ;o)

Sorry to worry you!  ;D  Kind of.  You are just such a special part of Caturday to me.  I think you were the first one to make me laugh out loud at a caption all those years ago.  QJ was the second!  I stopped keeping track after that.  You mentioned that all of your greenlights were Caturday ones once or twice, and I guess that was all it took for me to check every so often to see how your score was coming.

I'm sooo glad it's Caturday!  I spent most of yesterday evening checking the Greenlit section for the Caturday thread.
I was so upset that it wasn't posted by the time I went to bed just after midnight!
I even considered posting "Whar Caturday?" on TFD under an Advice tag.

I didn't realize that I had the wrong night for Caturday's green until I got out of bed this morning and read that TODAY was Thursday.

Sugarbear Update:
I just got the call from Mountain Vista Animal Hospital to bring my cat in tomorrow morning for his surgery! Several people made some substantial donations (and many more made a ton of little ones) towards his vet bills. Hopefully the cancer hasn't spread and Sugarbear will live the rest of his life as a couch potato tripod.
Thank you Farkers!

lilyspad: I have to admit that I am a little jealous of the thread this week. Lily is the only cat I have ever had the pleasure of sharing a home with that doesn't care for boxes.....or sacks, or anything like that! I've tried!! She is just one big NOPE! Sigh. I have to enjoy the kittehs in boxes vicariously through all the rest of you wonderful peoples! :D


Our Tilly was the same way. Boxes, paper bags & even catnip got a big old MEH from her. On the other hand she absolutely loved to chase after the laser pointer or play with a bit of string if my son or I dangled it over her.

That's so funny! (I think he likes you!) :D What did you name him???

I haven't named him. It seems kind of futile.
I call him "Kitty Kitty" as in "Here Kitty kitty kitty kitty".

I haven't seen him since the tree folks were here to cut up the fallen limbs & stuff.
I think the chainsaw freaked him out.

Yay!  Happy Caturday everyone!  :)

Buddy's BFF Chi-Chi, rest his fuzzy soul, loved a good box once in a while too.
I caught him napping in this empty overturned closet box more than once, so I stuck a blankie in there for him.   It became his special cave.  He loved it.

spinachgunk.smugmug.com

Buddy has a box hidey-hole under our bed -- the wooden bed base has drawers in it and one drawer is missing.  The empty space is the perfect size for a little doggie to crawl into and gleefully lurk.  I put a blankie in there for him too.  :)

I really should get a photo of that one day, it's adorable, but it's kind of a tight space, not easy to get a wide enough camera angle.

That is super lolsome!  Do you have a larger version of it somewhere?

Buddy looks like he's fearlessly laughing at the dalek.  "Haha!  One hand is a toilet plunger and one is an egg beater!  Hope he remembers which is which...."  (Sorry Juno, not much rescue help there!)

Suzy will undoubtedly save Juno.  That dalek doesn't stand a chance -- it's covered in little blue balls!
