Louie - he went to the vet this week.  Clean bill of health.  He also rolled over to have his tummy rubbed while we were there.  The vet was laughing, she said no cat does that but yours does.  mmm, yeah, Louie loves his tummy rubs.

Aye!  5 different people tried to subby Talkeetna mayor Stubby surviving dog attack (aka assassination attempt) but not a single one of those had Caturday tab.  At most recent report, Stubby continues to recover, tho vets worried at first.
Agree Leo's a good guy, this an excellent choice.  Contributed to DELTA in past, ought do so once/several times more.

"You say it's Caturday? So why aren't you feeding me??"

This the visiting either young or merely small jellicle who's hung around here off & on for months.  Finally able to gender-ID as female, seems quite friendly so would expect/hope she lets somebody live with her who feeds her regularly.  Did skritch behind ears but declined to cuddle, fearing where that might lead, besides to Fleas For All Resident mayhap.

The National Weather Service just broke into the tv station with a severe thunderstorm warning! I looked at the doppler map, and the whole southern border of Washington is covered with storm and heading my way! COOL!!!! I will probably have to shut off my computer tonight. They're calling for rain, hail, winds......cats sleeping with dogs, the whole shebang!!! :D

It also looks like they've gotten into a pissing match with the Humane Society in the past.

Mr Grillo is featured in one of my favorite National Geographic specials. Cats: Caressing the Tiger (1991)

His segment is roughly 39 minutes in and shows him trapping & rescuing two abandoned cats on a jetty and after taking them to the vet for their shots, spaying and neutering he takes them to their new home at the sanctuary.

You can see that Louie is stressed at the vet.  And yes, that crate says '"Bob Tac" (and then says 'cat' under that).  This was the crate my parents had for their cat Bob (Bob ended up living with me after Mom and Dad moved to an Alzheimer's/dementia home).  Dad wrote 'Bob Tac' on the top.  Mom insisted Dad had Alzheimer's due to that.  Actually Mom ended up with Alzheimer's.  Dad had dementia.  Ah the fun stories I can tell.

Anyway, Louie did great. 15.5 pounds of cat.  Hermie did great too, 12.7 pounds of muscle.  Robin lost 2 pounds in the last year.  I have to watch him for strange behavior.  cat....strange behavior.  Oh that will be easy (actually I need to watch his water intake, possibly diabetes).  I need to fatten up one cat.  sigh.

It was kindof funny. When the weather alert came up on the tv, it switched channels and went to the weather channel...very loudly! Scared the crap out of Lily!! I hit the remote to look at the channels, and they all showed..."to be announced"! I don't think they've thought this whole emergency program thingy through! :D

thank you both (and yes, great subjects help)  and yes, it is a nice camera for a novice.  I like the option of skin softening in shots for me.  I don't feel so old then.

This storm is rolling to the southeast pretty quickly, so you never know!  Hope you get a good night's sleep and stay safe out there.

What does Miss Lily think of thunder & lightning?  Buddy doesn't mind it so much except for those huge-ass booms that shake the building.
