Also, don't know if anybody posted this (can't even remember ME posting this, stupid goldfish!), but Alien has an update on her gofundme site from 2 days ago so fairly recent from her.  Yay, still alive (though not the happiest of campers).

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.

I hate when that happens!

Mostly the brush part.

Makes me panic.
 
2014-07-19 01:35:34 PM  
Hai guize! I'm just checkin' in real quick like. I am not nearly close to being caught up here, cuz I has a BUSY! I didn't want anyone going into a panic and thinking the Hobo Cats had killed me to death and were currently gnawing on what was left of my corpse, so I thought I'd take a small break and say "Hai".

Earl is doing fine even though she exists almost solely between the guest bathroom across the hall from my Lair and the Super Secret Lair of Infinite Doom. She's feeling confident enough that she was just playing and hopping and running between the two rooms. She also sometimes likes sitting on the back of my chair while I'm working. She's mah Stupervizer. :-D Gogh Beastie likes terrorizing her by checking to make sure her gooshy fuds are not "better" than his gooshy fuds, so it takes a while to get them both fed. He also enjoys staring at her while she's hiding under the bed, staring at her from my desk while she's on top of the bed and sneaking up and staring at her while she stares out the window. So yeah - he's kinda a jerk sometimes, but it's more of a stalkerish jerky behavior than a "imma gonna kick yer butt" kinda jerkish behavior, so that's good.

Mamma Hisss! and The Children of Hisss! are still in my back yard being absolutely squeeeable. I keep getting different stories from different groups about resources, but I've determined in the past two days that I really am not going to get any favors from the county or even the SPCA. The rescues are overwhelmed and so I've pretty much resigned myself to not getting any help from them until Yule at the earliest. I'm on my own! I'm hitting Amazon's mTurk to make the money I need to get them all spayed/neutered, including the source of the problem (adult cats wandering the area). Current head count of Hobo Cats who visit my yard comes to eight, but that includes The Children of Hisss!, so I've got a bit of time for them. After I trap them and start socializing them, they no longer count as "feral" and the price goes up. *sigh*

I have a shout out on Freecycle for a trap of my very own since it could be weeks before I get a loaner (there's a waiting list! gah!) but if all else fails, a cat trap will be the very first expense for the brand new, very unwilling and rather cranky about having to do all this stuff rescue group known as Hobo Cats. My colony name is Children of Hisss! (I had to name and register the colony and then register as their colony caretaker to be eligible for discounted spay/neuters!), even though I hope all her children do get homes as soon as we get them semi-socialized and tutored up all proper and lady/gent like. Little bastards. They're having a blast with all the toys that Gogh Beastie and Lady Earl of Grey never play with/have kindly donated, btw. I just have to remember to bring the toys in eah night so the skunks don't haul them off. We already lost one catnip caterpillar on a ribbon that way. When the little Hissers make it into the cat room we've got set up, the real fun should begin! Well, for the kittens, anyway.

Man, my back yard is a great place to be a feral cat, ain't it?

Here, has a cat. I'm going to make a fud for myself and start working backwards to see if I can get caught up while I nom my brunch.

This girl ran off last Sunday, and didn't show up until Friday morning about 1:30.  She's different some how. She is a rescue cat who never really seemed to enjoy life.  Since her return she has had more to say, demanded more snugs and rubs, and is actually getting along with our other cat.  Right now they are hanging out in a window together!!  Never seen that before.  She even woke me up this morning demanding rubs.  No idea why the change, but I hope it lasts.

cptjeff: their body temperature is higher than ours [...] My cat really enjoyed 100 degree days back when she was an outdoor cat.


Yes, cats have a higher body temp and tolerate heat better than humans. My black cat hates being outside when it's hot though, and I may be generalizing my own cat's behavior to all black cats. Also, it's very sunny here, so wearing black or having black fur means you'll want to be in the shade at all times.

But if that cat's owners have a cat flap

There are no cat flaps in this condo complex. South of the complex, there's a 5-lane street with near-constant vehicle traffic and a sidewalk with some pedestrian traffic. The cat's probably learned not to go there, but the presence of all that traffic would make me think twice about letting a cat out. (After one of my family's rescue cats was killed by a car in 1987, we stopped letting the cats just roam around. They could go out if they were on a harness or closely supervised.)

*sigh* Nathan is at the emergency hospital now. After the spat with Wolf he kept licking his chops as if he had hair stuck in this mouth. The licking turned into extreme tenderness and drooling.

Our vet recommended we take him straight to the emergency room. The doc at the hospital thinks he may have a puncture wound in his mouth or a tooth issue. The doc doesn't think his Jaw is broken but needs to sedate him for a better look. Since we are literally within walking distance of the hospital (PVSEC) he told us to just hang out at home and they'll call us after they get a chance to take a peek. They're pretty busy now and it may take a bit of time. Other than his jaw/tooth/whatever he's perfectly healthy and I'm sure other cases are going to take precedence.

He weighs 16lbs! Freaked me out because he is not the least bit fat, but him and Wolf are both big muscular cats.

I'll update when I hear something.

Diocletian's Last Cabbage: Squilax: Good morning fellow Caturdayians... I have a sad tale to tell today.

As some of you may know, I work at a drop-in for street kids. Recently one of them got her first place, and moved in with her 6month old kitten Ashes. The apartment is supported housing, built for people with mental health issues, and permits people to have small pets. However, the windows open downwards, and are only about a foot off the floor. My young client has a place on the 9th floor, and sadly on Thursday morning, she fell out the window to a concrete balcony 5 floors below. We were all in shock, and mourning, because we assumed the cat had died. The young lady's boyfriend scaled the building attempting to retrieve the cat's body, but before he reached it the security guards came and talked to him, and they decided to help him access the area that the cat fell.

Well, we were all astonished when she turned up alive. For an hour it was a carnival atmosphere in the Centre, we were all so happy that she was ok. Ashes had a little bit of trouble moving her back leg, but she wasn't crying and she seemed to be ok.

A follow up xray and vet visit yesterday afternoon told a different story - her pelvis was shattered. Poor little thing didn't even cry, didn't complain, but she was all broken up inside. The surgery was $5k to start and for a street kid, even with the help of the SPCA advocate, it was out of reach.

So here's to Ashes, a trooper to the last...


My condolences to you all and to poor Ashes especially.


Thanks. My client is handling the situation a lot better than I would be if it was my kitty, but is certainly and understandably quite grief-stricken. One of my coworkers took her and Ashes to the SPCA vet yesterday afternoon to get the xray and once they saw the extent of the damage they decided to euthanize her on the spot. The worst part of the whole situation is the ups and downs - we all went from sad, to ecstatic, to devastated. Not a great week at work - thank Basement Cat it's over and I'm on vacation for the next week. I know my client has a lot of friends who are gonna take care of her and show her the love this weekend - for the most part, those street kids really stick together when one of them has a tragedy. They're like a little family.

this is Mokey... i rescued her and her brother, Batman at the end of May. I was driving home from work one morning and they were seriously in the middle of a busy highway... they weren't old enough to walk, and their eyes weren't open. I brought them home, and my cat, Godwin, became their foster dad. More pics to follow!!


Welcome! She is adorable, and you are a very special human. (((((((hugs)))))))

Bondith: My cat, Molly, went for a walk last Friday morning and never came home.  She was 21, and in remarkably good shape for such an ancient cat.  Her kidneys were shot and she was too arthritic to do proper cat-yoga to clean herself, but she was still fairly spry.  She slept 23 hours a day instead of 21.  I moved out when she was 10, so for over half her life she didn't have my bed to curl up on, but whenever I came home she still remembered me ("Oh, hey, it's you.  I didn't realise you were gone.  Feed me.")

Last summer, I was home between jobs.  She spent most of her time asleep on the stairs, but when I sat down next to her she'd always wake up and rub her face against mine.  When I was in school, I'd sit in the basement with my binder and books spread across the table.  She'd come and "help" but sprawling right atop where I was trying to write.  Other times she'd sit on my desk while I was on the computer.  When she was a kitten, she'd curl up on my shoulder until she got too big to fit.

I suspect she went and found a comfortable bush to hide under and let go.  21 is a damn good run for a cat.  Someone told me that for a cat to reach that age, it means they're happy and well taken care of.  If I could remember my Photobucket password, and had storage space, and could figure out how HTML worked, I'd post some pictures.  She was grey, with a white bib and white socks of varying lengths (knee-high on her back legs, more like mittens on her front paws).  Mum and Dad and my sister searched the neighbourhood, and there's a missing poster up on the mailbox, but it's probably beyond hope by now.  She's been out before, but she's always come home.  It's been really hot and dry this past week, so she'd have had trouble finding water.

Christmas is gonna be weird.  Usually when I go home for a visit, the first thing I do is find her and pet her.



I am so sorry sweetie, but it sure sounds like she had a wonderful life with your family to love. (((((((HUGS)))))))
