So a couple of weeks ago I related that a neighbor's cat had decided to have her kittens at my place, and she wound up moving them to my front porch. Being a nice guy, I decided to feed the kitty since she couldn't leave them. Well, now that the kittens are starting to eat her food, I decided it was time to take them back home.

But... the cat came back, The very next day. And she brought all of her kittens with her. This wasn't like a city with neighbors in shouting distance, I live several hundred yards away from them through a thick forest. So I tried again, this time making sure to get rid of her food dish.

But... the cat came back. The very next day. The cat came back, she wouldn't stay away.

I decided that maybe if I didn't feed her, she'd be more likely to stay at the neighbors' place since they have several cats and a big food dish. I was forgetting that I am dealing with a lethal killing machine who has lived outdoors all of her life. I will say that the only thing weirder than finding a dead squirrel on your porch in the morning is finding half of a dead squirrel on your porch in the evening. On the plus side, I didn't find any percentage of dead squirrel this morning, so waste not, want not, I guess. Less for me to have to clean up.

Anyway, take the Quiz and come back and tell us how you did and if you want to adopt a kitten. Or three. And their mother.

Don't forget the Easy Quiz!

Good luck, and let me know if you have any issues.

Congratulations.   You now have four cats.   Submit and green your story for next week's Caturday thread.  You'll get takers on the kittens.  The mom, however, trusts you enough to help feed and care for her kittens.  She's yours now.

One of the questions starts with a lower-case word "a".

It's been hitting the 100s here.  I don't know if that means it will get really really higher in July and August, or if that will be the max, and we just hit the max much earlier than usual.

I don't remember Tia Carrere in that movie.

  Let us get our couchees in a row here.


Femme nue couchée (French: Nude Reclining Woman) is an 1862 painting by French Realist painter Gustave Courbet (1819-1877). It depicts a young dark-haired woman reclining on a couch, wearing only a pair of shoes and stockings. Behind her, partly drawn red curtains reveal an overcast sky seen through a closed window. The work is likely influenced by Goya's La maja desnuda.

Dammit. If I'd read the Beatles question more carefully, I'd have 10/10 on the quiz.

The correct answer on that one was "girl in an antique store".

I didn't either, so I Googled her name. Apparently she was, and I just wanted to remind myself that damn, she is hot.

I'm pretty sure Renoir had a painting by that name as well.

Yes, but I had to write a paper for Courbet's painting back in UGA art school. I ended up hating the painting even though I love nudes of woman.

A quick Google search shows that several other artists have used that title (and many have suspiciously similar beds and models), like Jean-François Millet and Eugène Delacroix (and of course Renoir).

I gave up and bought a bag of cat food. Maybe I'll be less likely to get dead varmints on the porch.

The ones I got wrong I'm not upset I got wrong. I didn't absorb the name of one company from their publicity stunt, and I have only heard of that movie. I think my wrong answer would have been better. And the art one was a 50/50 from that end of the art world.

Congratulations.
You're officially a cat person!

You and your family are also likely infected with Toxoplasmosis. You and your closest others did pick up and snuggle the kittehs, yes?

Yeah... ;)

With the kittens, she's best off with moist food.  Help her out so she gets hydration from her food, too.

What does it say about me that I only got the Andrew Dice Clay, Martin Shkreli, and Pablo Picasso questions right?

Just kidding, I got a total of FOUR right.  I guessed Okinawa too but I almost said the Philippines. I feel too much time pressure on these quizzes so I put Portugal for the Spanish Steps. I swear I know better, but Portugal is next to Spain so...

If I start a gofundme page would anyone donate to me so I could visit the Spanish Steps in person so I don't make that mistake again?  I promise if I saw them in real life I'd remember what country they're in at least.
