Clipping Claws by jmcquown[_2_]
Oh, Buffy made it seem so easy! When I first adopted her she'd just sit in my lap and let me clip, clip, clip. Front and back. It was okay the second time around, too. Next attempt, uh uh, no way, reorrrw!! Buffy has never really learned to retract those needle-sharp instruments. A couple...

A Cat up for Adoption by jmcquown[_2_]
Got this message on the Dataw Net yesterday. There's a woman who moved to Dataw from Massachusetts with a Norwegian Forest Cat named Victor. Then she left Dataw and moved with Victor to Beaufort. (That's the "big town" near here. Heh.) Now suddenly she's announced she's moving "out west" next...

I hope this works by jmcquown[_2_]
If it does, it looks like NIN won't be getting my business next year. They basically blew my request for help off which is too bad because they had been so good for so many years. Hug a kitty! I'll try to catch up if I find out news.eternal-september.org works (and it looks as if it...

Buffy is Weird by jmcquown[_2_]
Okay, all cats are weird. ;) Buffy absolutely *hates* it if I watch videos on the computer. She'll snap right out of a sound sleep and come running. She starts trying to climb up the back of my chair to get my attention. Oddly, she does not even notice if I turn on the television. I don't...

A New Buffy Picture by jmcquown[_2_]
She hopped up on the vary narrow window sill. I wouldn't actually call it a sill, it's more like decorative trim. But whatever. http://i65.tinypic.com/wrgrdg.jpg I snapped a picture. I had no idea why she got up there until I looked at the picture. Notice the squirrel off in the background?...

Nice Christmas day by Christina Websell
Spent a lovely day at my brother's house. Much better now the children are 15, 13 and 11.:-) It's always my job to carve the turkey. Dinner was great (always a bit cold, too much to serve at once) I didn't leave Boyfie for long. I went at 12.30 and came back to feed him at 4 and stayed with him...

Happy Holidays, Everyone! by Jill McQuown
I hope everyone is enjoying whatever holiday they celebrate this season. :) I'm posting via Google Groups because Thunderbird started giving me problems when trying to hit the NIN server for newsgroups. I've been fussing with T-Bird issues for a week. Email didn't work for a while, either. ...

She sounds like Katharine Hepburn! by jmcquown[_2_]
Buffy does this funny thing from time to time, usually when we're playing. She'll start to meow just as she begins to run toward me. She sounds for all the world like Katharine Hepburn when her voice was quavering. Not to disparage that grand dame of acting but if you ever saw the film 'The...

Buffy Sneezing by jmcquown[_2_]
No, she doesn't have a cold. I've been giving her weekly groomings with the Furminator. She's only my second ever cat but Persia sure didn't shed like Buffy does. OMG, it's awful! Fortunately she loves the Furminator grooming tool. She turns from side to side and purrs like crazy, rubs her...

Damned cold in SoCal! by The New Other Guy
Last night, it got down to 38 degrees at my place. At 11 pm, it was 52. Tonight at the same time, it was 43, so I expect it to get VERY close to freezing here. My small heater is already working hard, usually doesn't even come on til much later. And GLyN has been in, earlier, but when back...

Our Alarming Night by jmcquown[_2_]
3:45AM - I was awakened from a sound sleep (which doesn't happen every night) to the sound of howling. Buffy?! I turned on the bedside lamp, grabbed my glasses and my robe and went looking for her. I have never, ever, heard Buffy howl before. I found her staring out one of the the glass...

I.m beginning to wonder by Christina Websell
If Boyfie has a digestive problem re pooing in the bath. His bath poos are kind of like cow pats with some form in them. But not good firm poos. He has always been clean in the house until recently. I am guessing that cowpat poos mean he cannot hold himself. I never tell him off about it, if...

There's a LUMP under my bedspread by jmcquown[_2_]
Or duvet or whatever you want to call it... It's a bed cover. :) Buffy has never been one to burrow under a bedspread or a blanket or a towel. Tonight, for some reason, there is a lump under my bedspread. Yep, Buffy is curled up underneath it, having a snooze. :) That's the second of a couple...

Some wman has drowned herself by Christina Websell
Police were all about when a woman's body was found in the lakes where I take Lennie for his walk. Her family had reported to the police that they were concerned because she was missing. Too late to know why she drowned herself. I just wish that when people are desperate they would say so. ...

Boyfie is sulking big time by Christina Websell
I got a laptop on Thursday. I needed a better computer than my old desktop running on XP as it just couldn't cope with Facebook rpca or Youtube, as it is unsupported by Microsoft and doesn't update Java. He is "well" annoyed because his default position is on my lap - every time I sit down he...

mediaeval cat pictures by Jack Campin
How on earth did she find all these? http://larsdatter.com/cats.htm I am going to use the organ-playing cat for a screen backdrop. Or perhaps the cat washing its bum: http://corsair.morganlibrary.org/icaimages/2/m232.201vb.jpg

Ping Tweed "Eating for England" by Bastette
Tweed, you've sometimes said that Boyfie could "eat for England," which has always struck me funny. So today I used that phrase with a friend, also American. I added the disclaimer that although I'm not British, I've never heard anyone say, "So and so could eat for America." :) Anyway, my...
