Goofy Little Girl! by jmcquown[_2_]
I sometimes have trouble sleeping. Last night I was tossing and turning. In the middle of the night, exasperated, I turned onto my back to try to get more comfortable. As I was drifting off (again) Buffy decided this would be a good time to try to get me up. She meat-loafed on my chest and...

Buffy Doesn't Know What to Think by jmcquown[_2_]
A few months ago, when it was still very hot outside, I had to have a technician repair my central AC unit. Needless to say this disturbed Buffy. She hides at first but, being a cat, she gets curious. That guy was in the house, then he was outside the house, then back in the house. After a...

Things that don't make sense by Takayuki
Dot making imminent horking sounds while going to the food dish to chow down. Spicey purring and touching my face in bed, then resentfully staying out of reach after she gets a hug.

Boyfie knows how to look after himself by Christina Websell
Once again, he decided to go out before I did, so he leapt over the gate from the back garden when he heard my car coming back and to help me with getting the shopping out of the car. But there was a Jack Russell coming down the road, on a lead, with his owners and he saw it. I turned round to...

Bonfire Night by Christina Websell
Boyfie is afraid of fireworks. It's been raining nearly all day so I thought most people would hold off until the weekend, and it's not been too bad. I went out (deliberately) at 6.30pm when there were more bangs and hisses than he liked, simply because when I am out of the house he goes up...

cotton goes to the vet today by Mike Mayers
She is due for her shots. She will probably be afraid that the carrier will mean going back to the shelter but I hope I can keep her calm for the ride.

I think news got around by Christina Websell
amongst the local cats that it's a seriously bad idea to trespass in Boyfriend's garden. After he finally lost his temper and had that bad fight with the black cat that was bullying him where he got very beaten up himself, I have never seen a cat in the garden since. He's regained all the...

Spicey dislikes Legos by Takayuki
I have a couple of Lego blocks on my desk that I fiddle with during long conference calls. When Spicey gets up on my lap though, they sometimes catch her eye, and she just summarily slaps them off the desk as though they'd offended her. If I pick up the blocks and put them back on the desk, she'll...

Buffy kisses by jmcquown[_2_]
I love it when Buffy tries to wake me up early for food. Persia used to do it by tapping me on my nose. Buffy gives me kitty kisses on my temple. :) When I open my eyes she starts purring. Her purr isn't nearly as loud as Persia's was. In fact, I mostly feel it, not hear it. But when she...

Gnats! by dgk
I think they're gnats. They've been hanging out by the cat food bowls ever since I moved to Florida. I looked around for something to kill them but I don't like what I read on the labels. Then I found some advice about mixing apple cider vineger, some sugar, and a few drops of dishwashing...

Someone Lost a Bird by Christina Websell
"jmcquown" wrote in message ... Where I live there is a listserv - a fairly antiquated method of communicating with people who live on Dataw. Yesterday evening we got this: "If anyone happens to see a Blue and Gold Macaw down...

Zoomie Weather (Happy Halloween!) by jmcquown[_2_]
Reminds me of an old song. But no, it's not Stormy Weather here right now. ;) Buffy hung out with me nearly all morning. I was reading for a while. Any time I got up to do a little chore here and there, she'd get up and start zooming around. I'd toss the golf ball for her. Finish what I...

Roxy has pancreatitis by Bastette
First: she is not critically ill. I guess there's acute pancreatitis, which can be fatal, and there's chronic, which seems to be what Roxy has. She has been losing weight fairly steadily for the past couple of years. I've brought her to the vet a few times, and she's had full blood workups, which...

Boyfriend had an alarming day by Christina Websell
I had a builder in today to do some repairs to the outside of my house. So when he rang the bell at 8.40 to say he'd arrived., Boyfie was immediately up the stairs to his bedroom. Unfortunately when Boyfie thought it was safe to come downstairs again, the builder rang the bell again for some...

Good news and bad news (not entirely OT) by Christina Websell
My car, Mr F, has passed his MoT test. This means I have him for another year. I can't get to the vet without a car so that's the good news. The bad news is that the 4,500 houses on the fields behind my house are now going ahead. We've all been fighting it for years, but as usual, the council...

Shut Up, Buffy! by jmcquown[_2_]
First time I've encountered this with Buffy. I don't know what got into her last night. We were asleep. She was on the bed next to me. At around 1AM she started meowing. I immediately woke up and asked, "What's wrong, girl?" I gave her some scritches and she settled down again. No sooner...
