Thud Saves the Day by Art Shapiro
I've had Thud just short of five months. She's a little calico cat who by an improbably set of circumstances came to me from a shelter well out of the area; she was about to be put down because she's so terrified of people and there was no reason anyone would want a cat like that. Well, I'm a...

Persia and the Squirrel by jmcquown[_2_]
Persia kept going over to the corner of the living room. There's a table there with bone china teacups that belonged to my grandmother. (I don't want her leaping and possibly breaking any of the teacups.) A squirrel keeps jumping up on that ledge... I don't know why. But it attracted her...

General cat stuff of the day by Mark Edwards
When I got dressed for my interview, I put on some thin black business socks. After I got home, I took off the dress socks, and put them on the bed. Apache has grbbed them and declared my socks to be hers. Miss Emily came in for awhile. Senyah and I had to talk to someone on the speakerphone,...

Have a look at this by Christina Websell
I guarantee it will make you laugh if anyone ever wondered about the quality of Google translate... http://distractify.com/fun/fails/the-x-worst-asian-sign-translations-of-all-time/ I loved it. Tweed

Good Brushing Session by jmcquown[_2_]
Persia has always loved to be brushed. We just had a good time for about 10 minutes. She was purring like crazy while I brushed her and kissed the top of her head. I told her how much I love her. She wears a collar with a tag. I remove it when I brush her so she can get some really good...

Big Birds! by jmcquown[_2_]
Again with the cat TV... the temperature is a lovely 74F here in South Carolina. (Sorry, folks who are cold and/or snowed in!) I've got the patio door and windows open. Persia is chattering at some really BIG black crows. They're eating seed I've scattered on the patio. I love to see her...

Correcting the other slave by Mark Edwards
Apache was in the hallway, with her back turned to Senyah, and looking very irritated. It seems that Apache was in the middle of HER bed, when Senyah dropped her clothes on a corner of the bed away from Apache, but without asking Apache's permission. So I picked Apache up (which she normally...

Dot escaped into the cold outside by Takayuki
Dot managed to dash past me into the dark and icy night as I was bringing home groceries! I couldn't stop her because of my larger than usual armful - I had bought drinks and things for my students who are presenting their masters theses this week. At least initially, Dot must've been delighted at...

Domesticating Miss Emily by Mark Edwards
Last night, the temperature was enough above freezing (45F), that Miss Emily wanted to stay outside for the night. By the morning, however, she had changed her mind, and had her face right up against the gap between the screen and the window frame, looking all around for someone to let her...

Thoughtless people are everywhere by jmcquown[_2_]
I can't think of what to call people who simply move and leave their pets behind. If you can't take care of them, call someone! I got this email today from the woman who is charge of the Dataw Island Feline Foundation: "We have a situation that is very serious for a couple of cats on our...

Please welcome Nikki to our group by MaryL[_2_]
I have adopted another kitty. This makes three, and will be my maximum. Her name is Nikki--suggested by my sister for the Christmas season (St. Nicholas). The president of our local Alley Cats Allies called me and asked me to consider adopting her, and it just seemed "right." She was rescued...

Cat TV for Persia by jmcquown[_2_]
For a short while, cat TV (the windows onto the patio) was very active today. Must be due to the drop in temperature. I scattered some seed and refilled the bird bath yesterday. A while ago, Persia alerted me. She started making those chattery noises. :) So I turned to look. There were...

the nurse with an iron paw by Jack Campin
I spent yesterday in bed with labyrinthitis - which means you can't move your head at all or everything spins round for a minute. Chloe decided to help by planting herself full length on my chest and purring point-blank into my face. With occasional visits from Ollie and Marblecake pinioning one...

Babysitting for Serene's babies by dgk
My neighbor is off on vacation for 10 days and I'm over at their house before leaving for work and after coming home, to feed, entertain, and clean the litterboxes. Six cats. Gizmo is the troublemaker; he's sort of tan and grey, always knocking things over. Bluebell is a boy with very long white...

Emma - Serious Problems by Art Shapiro[_2_]
Emma is my orange tabby whom I acquired in December, 2010 at 11 years of age. The family that owned her couldn't give her as much time as she deserved, so they unloaded her on CraigsList. (That's pretty rotten, but she ended up in a good home!) She was in for dental work a couple weeks ago -...

Demand purrs by Takayuki
Right now, Spicey is at my feet, under my desk, purring and staring at me with those incredibly large eyes, glowing from the shadows. I always used to think that purring was a sign of contentment. But with Spicey, it's practically the opposite - it's malcontent with the state of the food dishes....

Thank goodness for my cats by Mark Edwards
There are a lot of ways my life would have been considerably more difficult, without my cats to help me through them. Hugs and Purrs, Mark

Still too cold for Miss Emily by Mark Edwards
After spending all day indoors, Miss Emily wanted back out again tonight, so I opened the door and let her out, with promises to check on her later. With temps getting into the mid teens, I worry about her. So a little later, I open the door to check on her. She is lying down in front of the...

Miss Emily want out on a frigid day by Mark Edwards
Miss Emily wanted out this morning, I'm assuming to do her business in the bushes. She went to the front door, found the weather not to her liking, went to the back door, found the weather not to her liking, then went to the closed laundry room door. I showed her what was behind that door, so...

Another in the Shamrock's head collection by Cheryl[_3_]
Just for you, Joyce. My boys, all stoned. It didn't take long for Shamrock to chase Sammy off of the catnip sprinkled on the scratching toy, but Sammy holds his own with these boys. He's been giving Rhett a run lately. LOL http://i43.tinypic.com/2093otu.jpg ie, making a mess with catnip but...
