Gonz: Meet Sinatra. He was a stray until yesterday. He now has a forever home with us.


What a cutie, he looks a lot like Bart one of my last fosters

baka-san: Smidget the Hewittarian: Thought you were elsewhere:-) I will need to reattach it, cuz as the belly grows, it is hard to reach certain areas, if you get my drift

Nope, not at all...

*scratches head*


Knees and toes? the spot between your shoulder blades that is a pain to reach and scratch??

can't think of anywhere else......

maritamm: bravesfan44: Hi Everyone! I'm a long time lurker and fan of Caturday.The wife and I were hoping someone would do me the favor of captioning our fat cat Rosie (aka Rosie May and Ro Ro). Also pictured are Doodles the brown and tan Chihuahua and Petey the blond Chihuahua.http://">http://">http://">http://">http://">

Love the Chi's!! I also have two, a black and tan, Chico, and a blue, Fidget. I'll try to post pix of them and the cats soon. Still trying to get to my external disk drive with all the pix. GRRRR.....


We love the Chi's too! All they want is love and never fail to bark so we always know whats going on. Hope you get your problem straightened out soon so you can post them. Saturday is a busy day for us, but I hope to get in on Caturday as much as possible.

DoomsDayAardvark, thanks for captioning my colt pic, just got back from seeing him again - he is soooo cute. I wanted to bring him home, but Lucy said no.

It's been ages since I've been around my equine friends. I used to go riding regularly when I was in my early teens. I even did some gate jumping. I miss it sometimes. Is your new buddy destined for any particular occupation, or is he "just a horse?"


Last week you asked about my little equine friend. He's a purebred Arabian with some pretty impressive ancestors (Khemosabi and Bask mostly). He'll probably end up in endurance but could be english or western pleasure. Given his general tough guy attitude (even when he's hiding behind Mom) I'm guessing endurance racing.

Is there an award for world's stupidest pet name?
 
2010-04-24 2:59:16 PM  
OK . . . Here goes!!! If this works, this is a picture of my Chi, Fidget the Midget. This is from her 2009 calendar shoot. She was selected as Miss August! The calendar was a fund raiser for various rescue groups here in New England.

DesertZephyr, the lack of tail is just an illusion - he had a perfectly good tail, it just didn't feel like being seen in that picture. You can see it a little better in these

it looks just like me ;)

Nah, you're much better looking. ;) Though frustration can have that effect (I always wish I could grow fur and fangs when I get mad)

aw, shucks :) though i still think there's a lot of resemblance between that cat and the picture in my profile.

Exactly why I picked that picture of a computer cat.
...just sayin'


Oh, definitely. I see the resemblance.

My aforementioned spouse spent about 27 years in those situations--in Oakland, CA, no less. Here he is with one of the babies I was talking about.


And thank you and your spouse too! :)

I LOVE that blanket Kay seems to appear in/on/next to often. Did you or a relative make it? What yarn did you/they use? I want to make one too!

Kay's blanket was made by my late godmother (the original owner of my parents' cat, Nero). After she passed away, I ended up with some of the stuff she made. I don't remember exactly when Kay decided that the blanket was one of his favorite things in the world, but he loves to burrow under it and get hopelessly tangled up.

As for the yarn...it is...um...blue?

///knows that it was crocheted, though, if that helps

No name yet. It would be so cool to start him from a little tiny guy, but there is no way I can afford a horse. Tomorrow they're having an endurance race out at the stable and I'm going to volunteer. If I can't ride one at least I can be around them.

Well, we certainly have had our share of trolls today. Too bad they have all been of the "you're crazy cat people / your posts are boring / you've ruined Caturday" variety. Last week's sole troll was at least imaginative.

Oh well, to all of you trolls:

I believe Without Fail is either owned by this kitteh, or at least posted it (at least that's what my notes to self say). This is pretty much how I'm feeling today, without the benefit of any drinking last night (migraine still hasn't gone away. Mostly light sensitive, but a bit sound sensitive, too.)

Nice one, Lajimi!

And just so we aren't misrepresenting, the vehicles that Mr. Oddmind and Daddy Oddmind drove were black & white, not red. However, Grandpa Oddmind and 3 Uncles Oddmind drove red, so it's all good!

lily belonged to a client/friend who moved from florida to washington state. the move apparently upset her enough that she started using houseplants as her litter box. she wasn't allowed outside for fear of predators so she was shipped to me. i had always coveted her anyway :)

i found him and another male (long-haired brown/gray tabby) wandering down the middle of a road on the way to work one night. i couldn't leave them there, so i took them home. his companion was named jekyll; he disappeared one night, never to be seen again.
