She sees birds!

Aww I love that! I found a bird video that Comet really likes. Here's the link if anyone else wants to try it.

Thanks for sharing!

One of my girls just saw part of the video and went nuts . She was trying to get to my laptop's screen to get at the birds. And she started purring. So now I guess I'll have to get her one of those videos for them.

Aww I'm glad other kitties are enjoying it! It's nice that someone went to the trouble of filming that and posting it online.

Woke this morning up to find some company had joined me during the night:

Holly (the black and white one) was unfortunately hit by a car and passed away. I genuinely loved her. I'm devastated. I know people will say that's why you should keep your cats indoors but talk like that won't help and I live in a nice quiet suburban neighborhood but accidents happen.

I know everyone loves their pet but she was such a loving cat with no bad bones in her body. She will be missed greatly.

So sorry to hear, It's also my nightmare scenario, because; no, you shouldn't keep, what is essentially a wild animal, locked up indoors!

How's the other cat taking it?

A little subdued but generally okay. They never really got on, with the big black one being a bit of a bully to the much smaller Holly but they were just starting to bond.

Not to start something, but cats aren't wild. they have been somewhat domesticated for millennia and especially if there aren't any small cats native to the area. outdoors cats has been a disaster for the local birds in many places.

Anyway, to Shazami, I wish you the best through those difficult days.

We should probably table the indoor/outdoor cat talk.

This thread makes me so sad that I'm allergic to cats. Don't ever stop posting sweet kitty pictures!

Yes, Cats retains some of …"wildness" compared to dogs, since they were mostly left be to eat the rats and another vermin for most of these millennia.

But like Kestra said, Let it go as it isn't helping.

I'm sorry for your loss. Pets become like family members and it's really hard when one passes away.

Re: Feline Follies

Yeah, it's been (and still is) really hard. We took her in as a stray and I'm glad to say that I never took a moment of her existence for granted. She was the first thing I'd see whenever I got home and the last thing I see whenever I left. She slept on my bed every night and on chilly evenings would get under the duvet : ) She was such a small cat that she could slip under there unnoticed and I'd wake up in the morning with her under the covers by my side : D

I was away when it happened and it's eating up that I wasn't there for her when she needed me the most. My housemate was with her though, stroking her as she passed so at least she wasn't alone.

I miss her a lot. She was my friend.
