You have a couple of great dogs there. I really like Dachshunds . I had a neighbor who had 5 of them. Those cute little guys could make a lot of noise sometimes.


I have a couple dozen (rescues), and I think I annoy the neighbors more when I tell them to STFU. Only loud 3 times a day: Breakfast, coming home from work, and suppertime.

Isn't it already? Least it was when I was young.


Only if you're Catholic. Us Lutherans do TERRIBLE things to fish (lutefisk) so it'd be unconstitutional to require us to eat it. Except at Christmas. If you're my dad.

geekluv again:
My cat Picasso is bigger... I am hoping she didn't gain anymore weight. She's 17 lbs & her gut almost hits the ground.... She looks sweet, but she will put you in a paw lock & will not let go even when you are bleeding. It's her way of showing her love & that she owns you....

Hi good Caturday folk,
Quite late again! Copied/quoted comments were on pg 1, mine will likely be on pg 9.
Ginger, senior cat who lives with us, was 17 lb at last vet visit. I'll need more time than I have to find a pic of him; he's marmalade & white, as 2 of our young ones are. Bite: he climbs onto my spouse's shoulders (esp when spouse wears long-sleeved shirt) & bites the shirt. Sometimes he gets skin too, & gets yelled at.
I was given during the past week a cartoon that might be decent for CADtm, if I can stay up that late.
Now to start plowing thru the accumulation. Had "other matters" to attend to before I could come here ....

It used to be a time that 40% of the created cat pictures were clever and entertaining. Now that the "market" is flooded and people are running out of ideas it's closer to 15%.

It never seemed fair that people who lived near an ocean got to eat wonderful stuff on Friday, but in utterly land-locked Wyoming we got fish sticks or mac-n-cheese with canned tuna and peas. Don't care anymore though since I gave up both religion and eating animals.

It is cold and rainy here so I will be heading back to bed with 2 cats, my book, and my cup of tea. Had to go out because I was out of cat food and you all know what that means:

It's a sad caturday in the Pope Larry household today. We had to put one of our wee beasties down last night. Lilith was 16yrs old and was not well. About 2 months ago we noticed she was coughing like a 2 pack a day smoker. A trip to the vet determined that she had asthma, and that her lungs had expanded and pushed her heart up towards her throat (we saw the x-rays it was kind of scary). We started her on medication and it worked for a bit. Earlier in the week there were some other complications and we felt that it was best to not let her suffer any longer.

We adopted her about from some friends about 7 years ago and I had known her for a for a few years before that. My friends were also not her first house, they rescued her from someone who was not very nice to her. It took her years for her to learn to not attack our other cat and to let us pick her up and pet her. In the past year or so, she got over her issues and was a really fun cat.

We are really going to miss her.

Maybe you could be part of the solution. How about showing us how it's done and posting entertaining cat pictures instead of whining and making up meaningless statistics.

I saved room for FerFer72's kitties but, after that, I'll be out of room. sherpa18 was right last week when he said I needed a bigger organ. Story of my life. ;-)

Can anyone give this mess a caption?

timujin: We're keeping an eye on the local shelters' websites and have left pictures of him with them as well. We've posted signs and keep getting calls, but it hasn't been him. I mean, hell, he's a black American short hair, there are tons of cats that look just like him.


My kitten got out last week also. I was scared because she has no street smarts and will not keep a collar on. My son and I finally found her in the garage (even though we had already looked there three times). She is also a black American short hair.

You have a couple of great dogs there. I really like Dachshunds . I had a neighbor who had 5 of them. Those cute little guys could make a lot of noise sometimes.

I have a couple dozen (rescues), and I think I annoy the neighbors more when I tell them to STFU. Only loud 3 times a day: Breakfast, coming home from work, and suppertime.



If you have to climb on the kitchen cabinet - you have too many animals

Step 1. Take in reject dogs from death rows in shelters
Step 2. Grab bag of treats and camera
Step 3. Climb on countertops in kitchen
Step 4. ?????
Step 5. There is no profit with that many dogs, just lots of love.

In photobucket click on "Edit" above your picture. When you are in basic edit mode you will see "resize" where you can either chose a set size or use the sliding thingys (make sure the keep proportins box is checked). I try to make my largest side no more than 500.

Hope this helps!
ps: make sure you save by "replace original" or you may get goofed up like I tend to do.

Here's an older shot of Dave and his "Mini-me", Trey. Trey's momma was a feral, and she abandoned her kitten on our back patio. He was hesitant to come in at first, but now he's quite the friendly fuzzbutt. He's also bigger than Dave.

If I recall correctly, they were nomming some shrimps when this picture was taken.

Her favourite position in the last months, helping Pope keep his hand warm while watching hockey on-line.

Lilith could be a very sweet cat, but also a real psycho-kitty. She's had improper urination problems since we've got her. We tried everything, from Feliway to Prozac, multiple litter boxes, you name it. She just had anxiety issues and that was her way to express them - eventually we just gave up, bought stain removal solution by the gallon and christened a part of the basement Lake Lilith.

Every time she ruined a new bath mat or peed in my backpack we swore "this was the very last time, next time that's it". It's been "it" for several years now, and only because we knew she was suffering did we finally make the decision. I guess her love was worth a stinky basement.

She passed very peacefully as we held her. She actually was very quiet the whole trip and usually car rides are like a big Cat Opera. I think she was just very tired and went happily to the bridge, her tummy full of one last can of salmon, in the arms of the only people she truly ever loved.

It was the right thing to do, but nonetheless, we haz a sad.

She was on prednisone, 2 pills a day. She was better for a while, but then it got worse. Yesterdsy I came home and I heard her from across the house before I saw her. She had a growly wheeze even at rest.

She had other bad symptoms too, we didn't want her to suffer anymore. Now she's in a place where she can get all the bacon she wants.

Glad your kitty is doing fine with the medication, he/she looks like a very nice companion!
