Re: Feline Follies

Shazam, so sorry for your loss. I know what you mean about our pets being our friends. I still miss my Mycroft all the time since he passed away from cancer about a year and a half ago.

With the thread mourning Shazam's loss, it might be too soon to discuss a somewhat amusing feline incident I indirectly witnessed this weekend.

Sincerely,

Bill

Re: Feline Follies

Thanks! I didn't want this to end up being one of those "Too soon?" situations.

Anyway, Saturday as I puttered about the house, I thought I heard something outside, a cat, possibly two. Then I realized it wasn't really "outside", but rather from the crawlspace beneath the house! It was weird because I could hear them almost clear enough to create the illusion they were inside my house, merely in another room. They growled at each other and periodically shrieked! They were either fighting, or...well, ahem, mating! Yeah, I know how they behave and sound when the female is, er, "receptive", so it was a good possibility it was the latter.

Hopefully if it was a breeding encounter, the female won't claim the crawlspace for her den when she comes due.

Sincerely,

Bill

Sometimes I think she needs a belly rub, and then she bites me.

High five with Matilda



Recently discovered that she's a Siberian. I'd been under the impression that she was a Birman, but I've been looking at pics of Siberian cats and she fits the bill perfectly.

I've been chosen as human custodian by yet another stunning feline. I give to you my new out-of-the-blue cat, Matilda.







She just showed up around the house a few days ago, just like my other blue-eyed cat, Smaranda. She has already made herself very comfortable. It's as if she's always been part of the family.
That's a really pretty kitty.


Here are some homeless cats I play with at a local park:

Re: Feline Follies

Chances are, Alienesse, the cat chose you in advance, if this is any indication:

"The Secret Life of the Cat" (2013 BBC documentary)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7hVOUB_awSk

Hour long documentary where highly accurate GPS devices as well as cameras are put on cats and we find out what they are up to.
I learned some things about cat behaviors.

I got to see my first "hermaphrodite" cat. That's it -- I've seen it all now!

There's a half-hour follow up called "Little Cat Diaries" which I have just started:
