AlwaysRightBoy: Bathia_Mapes: Unobtanium: So, so.. THIS is what Caturday is like on TF. Wow. downstairs sponsored me for a month. I already waste enough time on Fark and this is not helping. I usually look through Caturday as soon as it goes green on Saturdays. You people are...amusing.

No cats or other animals at home right now, two dogs at the Rainbow Bridge. Three "catch-and-release" strays hang around because our neighbor feeds them. One is WAY too friendly to have been born feral. She gets along better with dogs than cats, which worries me since we have seen both foxes and coyotes in our suburban subdivision.

Yep, this is what Caturday is like on the TF side. Now you know why there are so many comments in the thread before it goes live on Saturday morning.

Welcome :-)

It's also one of the funnest to submit to.

/will now go look up whether or not that's a word


It's a perfectly cromulent word  ;-)

Funnest?  It's a word, right up there, where you typed it. :)

A word as real and meaningful as Caturday. ^..^

Katie went blind about five years ago, but nothing wrong with her ears or sniffer.  No hiding anything from her.  And Squeek knows Katie's a good girl, too.  They're like sisters. :3

Unobtanium:
Yeah, I paid attention to that. I felt good if a Caturday thread was below 300 when I got in.

That always baffled me. I couldn't figure out how so many comments, with previous dates, could get posted so quickly.
I was swiftly educated on what went on behind the curtain.
Welcome aboard!

Something along the lines of "Hey! Howya doin'?" First time I wore it was to the National Folk Festival in Bangor in '03. I was bombarded. Guess I got trolled in R/L  LoL

Snuffybud:
His fur really explodes into blueness when I use a flash to take his picture. That's one of the reasons I don't have as many good ones of him as I do the other boys, the only way I can get a good shot is with natural lighting.

Try using bounce flash if your camera supports an external flash.

Well, I must nap for a bit. I've been waking up at midnight for the past few days and then getting a 20 minute nap around 8am. No idea why, but that's OK. It's not like I have to actually DO anything other than feed the cats at this time in my life. Plenty of time to sleep when I wanna. lol!

I look forward to more mewbies in the morning! Everyone has a good night and if you're still up at midnight or so, I'll probably see ya then.

A few minuets ago he walked over and sneezed on the left side of my head and then walked away.

He needs a pill pocket and 1/4 Chlor-Trimetron apparently.

Hosted Book Club tonight and everyone is finally gone. This was Hector's first experience with a group of people and I think he got overstimulated. He couldn't decide if he should inspect the food on the coffee table or inspect the new people who came into his home so he kept bouncing around between every one and every thing until I had to give him a time out. He didn't do too bad for an 8 month old with his first group.

Not Hector (or Mika either)

I posted new updated photos today. The cats are recovering and look absolutely wonderful. I'm so thrilled with their progress.

I have to say I was surprised to see this headline. I lived in Huntsville during the 90's and I adopted one of my cats there in 1995.

Anyway, this is a great shelter, so I'm glad to see them getting good publicity.

Good meowning, everybuddy! Got the ferals fed, almost done with my first pot of coffee so I'm starting to perk up a bit and Gogh helpfully rearranged the cupboard under my bathroom sink last night for me (he decided everything looked better on the floor), so I found a whole box of nail polish I forgot all about. Awesome! Nail polish is one of my big loves! Also got an email from an old friend in SoCal who is opening a second restaurant, this one in my area - would I like to meet for coffee and discuss seasonal menus and guests chef slots? *GASP!* Excited! I hope everyone's day turns out as awesome as mine is starting out to be!

Don't mean to sound like I'm trying to discourage you in any way, but are you sure you're healthy enough to take that on right now? I know you're a chef, but don't forget that there is a lot of stress there, too! I'm sure you know your limits. That being said...Good Luck!!!! :D

I am not healthy enough right now and I know it. The exciting part is "guest chef slot" - so it would not be a permanent slot. It could conceivably turn into one if all parties were agreeable to it and I was physically capable of it, but it sounds like it would be a seasonal thing at this point. So I'd be given a month (or entire season) to take the helm. Design the menu, create the dishes, train the back of the house with cooking/plating my dishes, familiarize the front of the house with the dishes and then play (cook) until the next chef rotated through. Also, the place isn't open yet and she hasn't even signed a lease, so the earliest I'd be called to duty would be March or April - IF she's very fast (and unless she's changed a lot over the years, she is incredibly fast when she wants something done, usually by yesterday) and wants the first guest chef to roll in right at opening. This would give me plenty of time to either be well enough to handle it or politely decline and offer to do some consult work for her, when or if desired. Her finger is firmly on the pulse of Los Angeles, but SacTown is more like a vacation home for her. She's not very familiar with the regional culture. Having someone like me as her backup makes good sense, and that's probably why I was on her short list in the first place. I'm essentially a little Los Angeles/Sacramento hybrid. I knew being weird like that would come in handy some day!

Just peeked into the fridge to see what was available for dinner. I have ideas. Tasty, easy ideas. Will have to hit the market on my way back from the doctor's and pharmacy, but that's OK. I like lurking in produce departments of grocery stores. Those are some of my favorite places in the world. When the apocalypse comes, that's where I want to be hanging out - right by the avocados and artichokes. :-p
