yobbery: HAPPY CATURDAY!

Biscuit is a nimrod.
[img.fark.net image 490x367]

Biscuit and Mia looooove to play in the tub. Most times when I go in the bathroom one or both will come flying along hoping we'll put the faucet on a slow drip. This morning was no different.

I woke up to the alarm as usual and dragged my groggy ass into the bathroom to have a piss. Biscuit came flying in as usual, passed behind me as I stood at the toilet, and sprung into the bathtub. When he jumped into the bathtub he also sent a scrub brush crashing into the tub. The noise and sight of this horrid inanimate object freaked him out and he went flying back out of the bathroom....only this time he passed in FRONT of me.

Yes, I pissed on my cat. I got him nose to tail.

I'm not proud. As I was trying to chase him down with a wet towel my Wife was asking me what was wrong....with no time to explain before he decided to jump on the couch or something all I could say quickly was "I pissed on Biscuit!". Once she heard the whole story a good time was had by all.

He's either really insulted or thinks I've given him the ultimate token of respect. I can't tell which.

Cat Rescue Wranglers - Advice Needed!

Mamma Hisss! will be spayed and returned to me by Animal Care and Control under their Return to Field program for feral cats- if I agree to be the feral colony caretaker. Which I pretty much am anyway, so..... What I need advice on is the kittens - the SPCA says they are "too old" to be successfully socialized and that every day after 5 weeks of age you wait to socialize them just makes it even harder and at this point they are "just ferals". You and I and everyone who has ever been around cats knows that's the most incredibly FALSE "rule of thumb" ever. The kittens are fully weaned and abut 8 weeks old, so they're a bit old for the socialization to go easy, but it can still be done. I need to get them ASAP and put them in our "re-education center" MUAHAHAHA! (my mom's office). How the hell do I grab four kittens from a pissed off mamma cat? I may not even get a trap for another two weeks, so I have no idea how long until I grab Hisss! but I need to get those kittens in ASAP.

Any tips greatly welcome. I haven't had to do something like this in 20 years, so I am not exactly confident in my ability to *not* get shredded while grabbing kittens out of the yard.

Thanks guys!

I used food to get the kittens closer and then while they ate I'd sit there and talk to them to get the used to my presence. I'd hold my hand out to them, too, so eventually they'd get curious and come sniff my hand. I got four kittens at least calmed down enough to begin trying to tame them.
Because of other factors, I only got one of them socialized enough to be a pet, and she would never tolerate being an indoor only cat even when she had kittens, but she did take to being a domestic cat ok.

Greetings all... another busy day at work... heat pump is done, works very well... have started moving shelving in... adding more receptacles as I go, once I decide where stuff will be...  insulating the front wall and covering with plywood..  will still take a week or two to move everything to it,s proper place...  one of the brewery guys asked if they could temporarily store pallets of beer in my shop... and he was serious.. he got educated very quickly about the consequences of invading my space.. won't have that issue come up again.....
   Twenty eight is an excellent run for a cat... Quiz made it to 21+, Squeak to a month short of 21.. JJ made it to 22....  all inside cats... less hazards to deal with.....

If there something you can get them to go in, that they feel safe in and you can move once they are in?

Or take a couple of days of putting extra special gushie fuds next to your feet so they have to get really, really close to you to get it and then leading them with a plate of the stuff while Gogh and Lady Earl are in a room and can't get in the way until the kittens are where you want them?

Jasper and Blue behind the curtains they've ruined with fur.  They like that window because it gets all the sun during the day.  Note that tubby Blue didn't even bother waking up for the picture - he stays completely out from 10am to 4pm.

It's a unisex t-shirt.  The only difference is that the womens' shirt is slightly shorter.
