    Wow he's some lucky (*)(*)(*)(*)(*) - carpeted living room, separate bedroom, and monogrammed front door. And an 'electric blanket' t'boot! He lives almost as well as I do!!

    (I can't believe pu**y is a banned word! :roll: )

    In Juneau they often gas up the mosquitoes before they realize they're not f15s

    Cats are unfairly treated as aloof because they act like animals rather than humans.

    A cat sometimes looks away from you as a sign of deference, not disdain, as meeting your eyes directly is a sign of challenge throughout the animal kingdom. A cat that gazes right at you, however, is overcoming their instincts to show their love and trust, not assert themselves

    One time my ex and I were having sex when... Well, I fired off a little poem that I still had on my drive, that explains what happened.

    THE BEAST
    It was 3 AM or so, I would imagine,
    Blissful sleep fades, my thoughts turn to passion
    A caress and a kiss as I moved above
    Wake up my dearest, I want to make love

    As we embraced in the classic position
    Our bodies entwined for wedded love making
    A moan or a bump can be heard now and then
    And quickly we drew unwanted attention

    Clueless we were, without protection
    Completely consumed with my raging erection
    Freely IT moves, with sure intention
    As it creeps in without our detection

    Drawn to the rhythmic rising and falling,
    Dangling, waggling, instinctively calling
    Without warning, that beast, that horrid kitten
    Engaged in a game of testicular badminton.

    Siamese brothers who were kittens when we met
    died at age 17, 8 months apart over a year ago. I go hospice style.

    The big one, Solly, was a night cuddler. The little one, Izzy, the first to pass, was the mischief maker and the boss.
    I miss those brothers although I never liked Siamese before.
    Sadly they are not haunting me, although Izzy did and both for a month after Solly's passing.
    A month or so after Solly's passing, all haunting stopped.
    I do not dream, that I remember. But, before the haunting stopped I dreamed. I sleep alone.
    The dream: an arm was around me from my back.
    I felt the arm and found it was furry, like Solly's fine, silky fur and ended in a big paw as Solly's.
    All haunting ceased after the dream.

    I still have old, fat, black kitty who is about 17 now based on the current age of a young adult who adopted her at age 7.
    Personable but, not a cuddler. Only when she is first adopted in a new home. She's had 5.
    I would not take in another critter on her at age 17. Although it is tempting to see how she would react to kittens.

    Adopting cat siblings definitely has advantages. They sleep together, etc.

    It's 5:17 pm, 17 minutes past his Fancy Feast time.

    He is making an utter pest of himself - jumping up on my desk, walking in front of the computer, pawing at my fingers, jumping up onto the chair back ...

    OK ... Fancy Feast time!

    Thanks for the morning laugh, Seth. Our Napoleon is not fond of being kept waiting for his morning feeding...or his late afternoon one. "Making an utter pest of himself" barely covers his antics!

    We were gone for a week, and we just got back yesterday night. We had a neighbor come over and feed him while we were gone.

    This cat of mine will just not leave me alone for a minute! Follows me everywhere. On my lap, rubbing, purring, licking, staring.

    I swear, right now this is the happiest cat in the world. 14 pounds of a big male baby, so happy that I'm home.

    My shoe is untied. It was tied, but now it isn't. And the reason it's untied is that I was just sitting here with one leg crossed over the other, and the cat came in. He noticed one of the ends of my shoelaces hanging down, and he just reached up and expertly hooked it into his claw and pulled down. Having successfully untied the shoe, he unhooked his claw from the shoelace and left. Right now he is busy racing up and down the hallway and into open rooms, off in his fantasy world of chasing and escaping ..... :roll:

    Cats do age, if they are successful enough.

    Old Fat Black Kitty is about 17 - 18 years old as best as I can figure. She has had 5 homes in the n'hood.
    We communicate, she may even have desires for "close time" or "love time", but mostly it is about the basics.
    Oh, and when cooking is going on in the kitchen, there she be, sitting, staring, with a big cat smile.
    Hardly a cat interested in shoe laces. And once a proven multiple rat killer, no more. And there is no shortage.

    Had to share this. All I can say is that would have been the end of my fishing that morning. I'd want to get them warmed up and fed, and I'd probably keep them both. Guess I'd just figure it was meant to be ...

    The General Theory of Relative Kitties (a scientific paper)
    [​IMG]
    The recent PBS program on Einstein's General Theory of Relativity was on local PBS when Buddy Kitty was scratchin' at the door, wantin' to be fed.

    This got me to thinkin'. Have you ever wondered why, when you shake a box of cat food, it causes your kitty to move to where you put the food?

    This can be expressed in the equation: Cf=BKm; where Cf is one side of the equation which represents Cat food, and BKm represents where Buddy Kitty, or any cat, moves to.

    For example, if you shake a box of cat food, Buddy Kitty will move toward the sound of the shaking. Or if you pour a bowl of cat food into a container, he or she will move toward the container.

    If you then place the container on the porch, the cat will move toward the place on the porch where one places the container.

    Or if you walk down the steps and place the bowl on the patio, the cat (in this case, Buddy Kitty) will go to wherever you place the bowl on the patio.

    So, not only can grand schemes such as space-time be expressed by simple, yet elegant equations; but also everyday occurances such as feeding the neighborhood stray.

    (possum still thinks ya can't trust a cat. Right when ya think they's yer buddy - dey'll smack ya onna nose.)

    Mebbe there's an equation for that. But that's for another day.

    And then there is . . .





    If you haven't seen this and you are on this thread,
    it is probably worth the look.
