I do have a bottle of mead in the fridge. (White Winter Winery from Northern Wisconsin and really tasty)
.
A woodchuck who may not be apple but he does look a bit hard:

I had some mead for the first time last Saturday night at Litha ritual - I was rather surprised by how good it tasted.


WWW makes several types (my favorite is their dry mead). I really like their Black Mead also. It is honey wine with black currants.

Yeah, yeah, yeah - I wish (I lurve thunderstorms) - they keep predicting them, and I keep not getting them. Meanwhile, you think YOU got it bad?

Yay for Caturday!!! Its been one of those weeks. I want to pass along condolences to those who have lost fur babies, and get wells to those who are sick. Oh, and sorry for your being out of beer lilyspad. :p

It kind of sucks having an older cat. They never do anything picture worthy. I did manage to get a pic earlier, although its a crappy cell pic. I added the caption.


I present, Sir Wentworth... (he is really not that fat. It is just the way he was sitting.)

My daughter told me it looks like he is trying to push out a big turd. lol  He was actually grooming what he could reach.

Maybe since I have a very uninteresting cat, I will dig in my bukket and see if I can find some pics I took of him before he got older and lazy. Trying to get my attention away from the computer..

dickfreckle: Salem Witch: lilyspad: Salem Witch: Seriously, the hookers love Suzy.

LOL!!!

I do joke about the hookers liking Suzy (they really do). But to be serious for just one post, one of the most important things we can learn from our critters is acceptance.

Suzy will walk up to homeless people, hookers, gang members, she doesn't care. If they pet her, she wags her tail. It takes no effort on my part to treat them with respect and kindness. And they get a little bright spot in their day.

What making a little bright spot in you day might look like.

[imageshack.us image 640x429]
Suzy was consoling my nephew's daughter after she was scolded for something.

My little pooch always turns scowls into smiles on the street. He's hyper, won't obey even simple commands - but everyone loves him, and I especially enjoy it when a homeless person wants to pet him. Sometimes it's a ruse for 50 cents but usually they just want to pet a dog. It's one of life's simple pleasures you can't always get living on the street.


That's lovely, and so true.  Dogs (and cats, for that matter) have a way of cutting through all human interpersonal dysfunctions and getting right to people's hearts.  Buddy's the same way.  We have a lot of elderly and disabled neighbours who just adore him, we always stop for a pet and a good wag, they love fussing over him as much as he loves being fussed over.  He'll even stand up and put his paws on their wheelchairs, scooters etc for ease of hand-licking and head-scritches.  He also enjoys kissing babies and children (mixed results there, depending how sneaky he is).  He is very popular!  The binners in our alleys love him too -- it's lonely when no one wants to talk to you because you're stinky, but to Buddy, you're super interesting and awesome!  And if you're carrying stinky bags, you're freaking Santa Claus.

Whatever we can do to brighten someone's day, we love to do it, makes us happy no matter who it is.  :)

HakunaMatata: Hooray for SugarBear! Im sure he will be just as happy as you, Coelacanth, for his fur to regrow.

Here in AZ, Molly, Shadow and I are staying indoors and hiding from the weather. If our a/c goes, we're going to the closest pet-friendly hotel. They are currently sprawled out on the tile floor, which i think is feline for "stop being cheap and kick the a/c down a couple degrees!"

Radak.... sincere condolences. I still miss my doggies who have crossed the bridge.


The last time I was working I picked up this portable swamp cooler from Home Depot for $300 because my brother didn't want to turn on the AC even when the thermostat needle had nowhere left to go. I only got the thing to operate normally in my bedroom after putting a box fan in the windows to blow out the excess moisture. After the pump broke last summer, I replaced it with an aquarium pump and doubled it's cooling capability. That swamp cooler was one of the best buys I ever made. The cats seem to love it as much as they love the space heater in summer.

quantum_jellyroll: OMG! I got an early morning text that interrupted my sleep. I went outside to call them, and the little feral cat that has always stayed at least 10 feet from me, has come over and flopped over and started begging for pets. If it wasn't a male, I'd swear it was in heat! He's meowing, trolling, rubbing my leg, and begging to be petted some more. I'm flabbergasted.


That is so adorable!

Radak: This isn't a cat, but she grew up with one, and then always tried to play with any other cats she met, often much to their annoyance, but she just thought they were playing back.

She was the greatest companion, and died this week, after 13 wonderful years of life.

I'll miss you Etc.  Thanks for everything you gave me.  Sleep well.

Aww.  She was so lovely, what an adorable cutie pie.  Sounds like you & she had a great time together.   So sorry for your loss.  But glad to know she had a wonderful long life with you.  She was a very lucky dog indeed.

Rest in peace, Etc.

I just came back in from my ritual sacrifice of the fatted stogie (cigar), and he was just the most attention
craving cat I've ever seen! I can hold my hand out, palm up, a foot above the porch floor, and he comes over
and stand up on his hind legs and lays his head in the palm of my hand. This cat has a turbocharged purring
motor with a nitrous boost! He's loud!

Later, he would come over and use his front legs to "climb" up to my hand sitting my my lap and nudge it
trying to get pettin' and scritches. He purrs and trills and rubs his face all over my pants leg and shoes.

I think I may have created a monster.

Amazing musician who is still missed.  We saw him in the late 80's & it was a phenomenal show.

Just got some bad news about one of my sister's kitties.  She took Azzie to the vet because the kitty was chewing & worrying a spot on her paw.  Turns out it was probably a spider bite so Azzie got a cortisone shot & antibiotics.  The bad part is the vet found a tumor on the back of Azzies tongue.  Azzie & her sister Shadow are only 10.  Dang.

John Buck 41: I submitted this as a Caturday thread last night, assuming that any Caturday submissions after thread-close Tuesday morning would be looked at for Thursday night greenlighting, but apparently not. Only links submitted Thursday afternoon/early evening are eligible :( I am unable to get back online til 8pm Mon thru Fri (my work sked is 11a to 7p). I guess I will never get a Caturday greenlight. Anyway, enough of my (self)pity party. This is about a local kitten Freida who has a rags to riches story. Hope you all like it. It's just a couple minutes long and from the local CBS affiliate.

On  Applejack. My father among other things was a well known glass scientist. I grew up around a number of very talented glass blowers. The only thing they would drink was applejack on the (rumor?) that it did not have any lasting effects of the eyes, while other kinds of booze would in the long run.

Cat For Adoption - Please Help - DC/VA/MD- Can Travel (Re-Post)

i.imgur.com

Hi - I hate to post this in a Caturday thread and apologies for the re-post from last week but we have a cat that we need a new home for. The cat in question is one of the best cats in the world and we are sure whoever adopts her will be thrilled to have her. She's the sweetest and lowest maintenance cat I've ever seen. She's a fluffy marshmallow cat that loves cuddles and cheap cat food.

Question: Why is one of the best cats in the world up for adoption?
Answer: We have three cats - Momma-Cat, Beast-Cat and Douche-Cat. We adopted them as a package deal in Dubai when some asshole tried to drown some kittens outside our apartment; one morning we woke up to the sound of Momma-Cat screaming over the bucket her kittens were in. A quick fishing trip later we were the proud owners of two kittens and a momma cat. They all got on great until two years ago when we took the momma cat to get her teeth cleaned - from the moment she got home she has been in a fight with one of her kittens, Beast-Cat (now grown up into a 16 pound monster twice his momma's size). We have tried everything but with no luck and have come to the conclusion we need to find her a new home as the regular ass-kickings she's getting are taking their toll on her.

Question: Why is she up for adoption now and not a year ago?
Answer: We recently had a baby, and since then are no longer able to give the cats, who are separated in different parts of the house most of the time, the attention they need. Further - a couple of times they have gotten in fights near the baby and it's a risk we can't continue to take.

Question: Why isn't Beast-Cat up for adoption instead?
Answer: Beast-Cat and Douche-Cat are best buds. They are highly energetic and extremely destructive. They have a great time wrestling with each other and get on well. Beast-Cat doesn't do well on his own and any adoption with him would require a package deal with Douche-Cat. Douche-Cat is a douche and takes a lot of getting used to, we knew him as a kitten which makes it easier.

Question: Why not put her in a Cat Shelter?
Answer: She does not do well in cages and living in one would be a strain on her that we could not inflict on her, and would also make it hard to find someone to adopt her as they would not see her at her best.

Question: Have you tried X?
Answer: Yes

Question: Is she house trained?
Answer: Yes. She is also vaccinated.

Question: In the photo she looks like she's at the Vet - is she dying?
Answer: No - She was losing patches of hair due to over-cleaning herself out of anxiety due daily ass-kicking by Beast-Cat. She is recovered now as we have completely separated them into different parts of the house, a solution that is not possible in the long term as it basically involves locking her in the bedroom in the attic, which isn't fair on her and she deserves a home where she can get the love and attention she deserves.

Question: What is the return policy?
Answer: Our goal is to find her a new home where she will be happy, not just dump her. If the adoption does not work we will be happy to take her back and try to re-home her elsewhere.

Good morning everybody.  Here's a pic of Emma sleeping.  If you look closely, you can see a pair of my boxers in the back ground.  Oddly enough, the only time I can get pictures of her is when she's staying put, which is often, but she's just always sleeping.  No action shots, rarely anything with her eyes open.

farm6.staticflickr.com

Incidentally, she also has a habit of sleeping with one arm straight out in the air.

farm4.staticflickr.com

Was wondering how you guys felt about catnip and how much is too much if I were to give her some raw.  I put some in cat toys from time to time, and she seems to enjoy it, but I was thinking about growing a plant for her.

One last thing.  Every time I try to post a pic through the picture buttons on the WYSIWYG interface, it fails miserably.  I put in a URL, I click, it goes nowhere.  But when I put in raw HTML, it works.  Any ideas what's going on?

That sounds about right :) I had a cat once that sat there and 'played' with a moth for at least an hour. I don't know that she ever really killed it, just wounded it enough so it would keep moving.
