Re: Feline Follies

My Dad used to call cats like Tulla "peanut butter cats" because it looked like they had their head stuck in a peanut butter jar.

My Dad was an amazing man. He never finished high school, but could fix anything.

Once we had a little grey cat that was playing with another sitting in the seat of a wooden chair. He was sticking his paw up between slats to one side, by the frame if you will--and got it stuck.

It became frightened and started doing flips--and broke its forelimb.

My Dad didn't take it to the vet. Once, I had gotten my pinky caught in a door near the hinges, and required a splint. He saved that splint for years, and used that, two popsickle sticks and white medical tape to fashion a cast of sorts.

That little cat let him set that leg. I couldn't believe it at the time, but he did it.

The cat got full use of that limb.

The saddest thing was that, a year or two later, it got sick. Well my Dad couldn't do anything about that, so he took Tom to the vet. Before he could even the door open, a kid who looked "a bit slow" walked up to the window and spooked him. That cat clawed my Dad, jumped out of the car, and was never seen again.

Re: Feline Follies

No camera, so no pix, but late Thursday night (around midnight) a friend came by for a few minutes and I had the door open. I went over to the friend's apartment in the complex (yes, I closed the door).

When I got back home, my cat was near the computer, looking at another cat in the room! It appeared to be a 2 or 3 month kitten, who was huddled against a stuffed toy that I sometimes sprinkle catnip on.

What surprised me was they were just staring, trying to figure each other out. My Cleo wasn't growling or bristling or anything. But to be safe, I put her in the bathroom and then carried the kitten out.

Cleo spent the next hour near that spot, probably checking the scent. She didn't seem to relax about it until a few hours later when she might have forgotten about it.

It seems to me that somebody was looking to adopt a new human.

He IS a beautiful boy. I just wish he was a slightly less chatty beautiful boy.

But I love him to death.

Re: Feline Follies

My cat Cleo's getting pushy when she wants her treats. Usually she just sits on a chair next to me trying to use her infinite mind powers and meowing, or bringing her face up to mine for ten minutes. This time though, she took more aggressive action and put her paw onto my arm, which she'd not done before.

Re: Feline Follies

Remember this pic? The fish (Fred) happened to be a gift from a former student to my wife. She came home yesterday and found the vase on the floor, and Fred's head outside one of the bathrooms! Banshee was in her cage, and the two older cats have never even been up on the mantle, and the dog was penned in the kitchen, whereas Phantom has been up there frequently, chewing on the leaves. So guess who my wife found with a satisfied look?

Our Phantom, in a rare calm moment. Yeah, he's not fooling anyone, especially the fish!
