Re: Feline Follies

Aww.. I miss kittens! Why do cats always sleep on uncomfortable things? Just so weird sleeping on this wooden box rather than the whole couch. Of course sometimes it's a matter of claiming it. All we have to do is put one new cardboard box in the middle of a room and there is a rush to be the first one to sit in it. New keyboards also attract territorial lusts.

Can I just bitch for a second about people who give up pets once it becomes inconvenient? I know that there are some legitimate cases where people have to part with their pets. We have had one of those situations on the board recently. But there are SO MANY people on Craigslist trying to give up their pets to someone else and it makes me so angry. It also detracts from those loving owners who really can't give their pets a home any more and are heartbroken about it.

I know that I don't really know what people are going through but there is no way all of these people suddenly can't handle having a pet anymore. It's a commitment! Ugh. I wish I could take all of the kitties in.
I completely agree. I would never have gotten a cat if I didn't plan on making it a life (well, her life anyway) long commitment. Any time I've moved, I've made sure the place was pet-friendly. If it wasn't pet-friendly, it immediately got cut from my list. Pets aren't hobbies.

This is Nala, on the hunt for something or other.

Yesterday, we found she suddenly passed away, not even six years old.
I'm sorry to hear that, Mark. She was too young.

Mark de Vries, that is so sad. RIP Nala.

Miss Lemon, beautiful cat! And thank you for calling our attention to Mark's loss -- I hadn't noticed the line below the photo.

Thanks, Alienesse!

Actually, a friend of mine took the picture. The kitty is mine though.

Re: Feline Follies

Thanks Miss Lemon and Tora Ziyal. We'll miss her.

This is Nala's sister, Phantom. She's the loner of the gang, doing her own thing. Once, she went walkabout for seven weeks, only to show up again as if nothing happened... Cats are.. unique.

Phantom, what a cool name! I assume it refers to the color of her coat? Oh, and I love the tongue, too.

Or it refers to her tendency to disappear for 7 weeks

My girl cat is named Maya, which in Hindu means "illusion".
She manages to completely disappear in a 2 bedroom apartment, so I wonder if she was ever really there at all.

Originally, her name referred to the light spot on her face, which was much brighter when she was a kitten, giving her a Phantom of the Opera look.

lol, she does like to be around computers. I think that's my husband's old gaming laptop. Maybe she likes to secretly play Skyrim when we are at work!

Her name is Lily, and she is about nine years old.

^My cats also love computers, TV sets and loudspeakers. I guess they're just keeping up with the 21st century.

I've got some more cat pics for you. I did a little photo shoot with the kitties messing around with a broom a few years ago. Here are what I consider to be the best shots:
