Lynxie and Annie by [email protected]
When I got Lynxie in 2002, this newsgroup was a source of support for me as a new cat owner. I posted and shared his photos and stories. As the popularity of Usenet fizzled out, I drifted away. But then I searched today and noticed the newsgroup was still around, just very slow. If anyone from...

Buffy and the Steps (pics) by jmcquown[_2_]
I did a little something unusual today. I have some carpeted pet steps in the window in the corner of my dining room. Buffy likes to sit and look out that window. Oh, but the earth turned and the sun came in through the larger window. I opened the blinds and moved the cat steps. Got some...

Forgot to post about Buffy's Anniversary by jmcquown[_2_]
On June 2, 2015, I adopted Buffy. Wow, where did the time go? She went from being a timid cat who expected another cat to jump out at any minute and not let her eat to a confident, loving, engaging cat. Playing with toys and very much out of her shell in just a matter of a day or two. She...

New resident by Helen Wheels

Lovely Eyes by jmcquown[_2_]
In the early morning when I start to wake up, Buffy sits up and stares at me. The room is fairly dark due to the window blinds. But there is a skylight over the sink in the adjoining bathroom so there the room is not dark. In that light, Buffy's pupils are *huge*. She looks like one of...

The Raccoon and the Possum by Bill Stock[_2_]
I've mentioned that we leave food out for a couple of strays and the wildlife sometimes gets into it. But the other night I turned on the light and I see a large Raccoon and a Possum at the same food. The Possum left as soon as I turned the light on, but he didn't exactly run away either. I thought...

Slow Blinky Eyes by jmcquown[_2_]
We all know about cats and their humans and slow blinky eyes as a mutual sign of contentment, love and affection. Buffy is a total love bug. :) When I'm stretched out on the couch, reading, she creeps up up on my chest, rubs against the book. Then worms her way around it. She stares into my...

Hi. Long time. Nipsy, Scooter,and Baby update by dgk
Baby is the former feral who lives in the cave under my platform bed where a drawer used to be. Not much has changed with her. She comes out more and gets petted a lot but she still (after almost four years) isn't terribly comfortable in a house. Scooter just had all his teeth removed. Big job,...

A fish story by Bill Stock[_2_]
My larger Koi has learned to beg. This is not new to me, my Goldfish used to beg a lot. But it's more amusing when 12" of fish is dancing for you. She has also started to come to the top of the tank to wait for her food. Spring can't come soon enough, as she needs to get back to the pond. I think...

Buffy and my Work Schedule by jmcquown[_2_]
It's been very erratic. Most days when I'm scheduled I get out of bed at 7:30AM to get ready. It only took Buffy a couple of months (laugh) to figure that out. Now, even when I'm not scheduled to work, Buffy has decided to treat every day as if I have to get up at 7:30. LOL I didn't have to...

Smokey has discovered the freezer by Bill Stock[_2_]
Smokey has always known that the fridge is the food box. A few months ago we bought a new upright freezer to replace the aging chest freezer in the basement, but it would not go down the basement stairs. So it ended up in the kitchen, but Smokey has never paid much attention. Today I opened the...

Smokey knows Alexa, but Alexa doesn't know what a cat is by Bill Stock[_2_]
I mentioned a few weeks ago that our furnace blew out and we had to get it replaced. So I bought a new thermostat that does humidity and temperature control. It also comes with Alexa built in, so I bought a couple of Echo Dots to place in other rooms. The house has been automated for 20 years, but...

Buffy Now Waits on the Cat Steps in the Dining Room by jmcquown[_2_]
When I come home from work and she hears the automatic garage door go up, she looks out the dining room window from the cat steps. She can see onto the driveway and the walkway to the front door. I always have to walk down the driveway to check the mailbox. I see her sitting in the window...

The third thing by Bill Stock[_2_]
I found out last week that I need knee surgery. This is not exactly a surprise, as they should have done it two years ago, but the first surgeon was a tool. This will mean six months of rehab. On Saturday the furnace died after 20 years. Fortunately it was only slightly below freezing on the...
