Default Vid: Caliban singing for his breakfast

I caught a short clip of Caliban doing his normal morning serenade for
FOOD. This is what I have to listen to, sometimes for hours, until it's
time to feed him. It almost looks like the meows are forced out of him,
he's trying to keep them in but one escapes now and then. Turn your
speakers on very loud, his meow is tiny (and getting fainter all the
time, since he is getting weaker and weaker from starvation, you know

I don't know, Marina, he certainly wouldn't get a part in any play
with that little projection! He has the tiniest meow - I'm amazed
that you even notice it.

Sometime I should record Smudge's howls when she wants to go outside.
She could be an opera singer!

I know. I think he's going to be like Nikki and have a face like a
kitten for all his life.

Nina has that sort of "you can't possibly scold anybody as cute as
ME" kitten face too. Caliban is definitely shmooshable! You're lucky
to be clear over in Finland or I'd have to catnap him. =o)

Now feed that poor, starving widdle baby, Marina!

Awww. He has the *cutest* little round head and eyes. If you smooshed
his
ears down, he'd look like a Scottish fold. Bad idea.
He certainly is persistant! But he asks so sweetly. Much nicer than
Bosley,
who decides if you're not going to feed him, he'll just get in front
of you every
step you take and make you fall down)

Well, his mother walked the streets of Tallinn and we don't know who his
father was, so who knows what he has in his lineage? He doesn't mind me
messing with his ears. He's pretty tolerant in general.

Heh, Caliban doesn't just sing for his breakfast. When he's not perched
high up somewhere, mewing at me, he comes and walks over the keyboard
and climbs onto my arm and walks back and forth on my neck and
shoulders. And sits on the fingerprint sensor. :P

Speaking of not knowing what a cat has in his lineage reminded me of
Nico, presently residing with my ex. A friend of my ex's had a sick cat
and the vet said it might need a blood transfusion and practically any
cat, moggie, would do as they usually have the same blood group. The
friend asked my ex if she might borrow Nico for the transfusion, and as
it wouldn't harm Nico in any way, my ex agreed to it. After the attempt
at the transfusion, however, it turned out that Nico had blood type B,
usually only found in pedigree kitties, and not the more common A. Nico
is a rescue kitty, and AFAIR his mom was the cat of an elderly lady in
the country who passed away, and the pregnant cat was taken to Helsinki
by a relative of the old lady. All the cats in Nico's litter looked like
him, bluish grey with some white here and there. So again a case of not
knowing what he has in his lineage... I told my ex to write Nico's
blood group into his papers, so he doesn't forget it if it someday
becomes important.
