Been away by Helen Wheels
So I've been away for a few weeks, visiting family in the UK as my Dad's been very ill. I left here pretty suddenly, got a phone call at 6:30am, was lucky to be able to get the cats into a good boarding place, and was on the plane by 6:30pm. Thankfully Dad's out of hospital now although things...

Buffy alerted me by jmcquown[_2_]
A "Peeper". That's what they call the small tree frogs that live around here. They're tiny but make a huge racket. Buffy alerted me to the fact that there was one climbing up the window. I snapped a pic. :) https://i.postimg.cc/KYrdhZgW/tinytreefrog.jpg Peepers are small frogs. This one is...

Buffy Loves Catnip! (pics) by jmcquown[_2_]
She has a plush little hedgehog toy with a velcro tummy for catnip. After a play session with the fishing wand toy, I replenished the little hedgehog with catnip. Oooh! https://i.postimg.cc/FzjN62Rv/catnip1.jpg then... https://i.postimg.cc/Nfq1rmv2/catnip2.jpg

The Big Loud Sucky Monster by jmcquown[_2_]
aka the vaccuum cleaner. Hoover, if you prefer. It actually is a Hoover branded vaccuum cleaner. :) I vaccuumed the living room. In the era this house was built there was usually a formal "living room" for entertaining. My parents didn't entertain. They still built a house with a very...

A masterful BCT by Mahoney, DC
Saturday Nancy and I went out running some errands. When we got home I thought it strange that Benni wasn't hanging out at any of her usual places. When I get started feeding everyone their dinners, no Benni. After both of us searched the house thoroughly, we figured she must have slipped past...

Smokey is ringing by Bill Stock[_2_]
I was trying to find my phone the other day, but it was nowhere in site. So I said Alexa, where is my phone? Next thing you know, Smokey starts ringing. She lifted her head, WTF. I think Smokey dislikes my phone, she says I spend too much time on it, that I could be spending with her. She has...

Just Trying to Annoy Buffy ;) by jmcquown[_2_]
Turnabout is fair play. Buffy ignores me most of the day. She can snooze right through me being gone for hours at a time and not move from one spot. Doesn't even notice. But even when I'm stretched out right there, reading a book, she's taking a nap. I know cats sleep a lot, but come...

A slight Ooops by jmcquown[_2_]
I have been doing some house cleaning today. Got out the big sucky monster, which of course Buffy hates. She ran and hid. I picked up her little cushy pyramid bed and took out out front. To shake off the dust (her fur) and clean out the inside. More fur. She sheds terribly, despite...

A display of tinyness by Dan Mahoney[_2_]
A little over a week ago I was informed by Nancy that we need another cat. When I questioned the wisdom of adding another, her reply was "Or we could get another dog". Ok, another cat it is. We found a tiny little black and white girl named Benni. The shelter says that she's 3 years old, but if I...

Nice Play Session with Buffy by jmcquown[_2_]
I furminated her highness and after that she felt very playful. I got the fishing wand toy out of the hall closet. I had told her to "stay" in the living room but saw her peeping around the corner... thinking I couldn't see her. LOL It was too cute. Sorry I don't have a camera built into my...

the latest on Floki by Helen Wheels
Floki's latest trick is climbing up the kitchen cabinets using the drawer handles as a ladder. He doesn't get up on the countertops thankfully, but he's worked out that he can see what I'm doing if he stands on the lowest handle and grabs onto the top one with his front paws. I think I'm going...

A bit about Trixie by Helen Wheels
Trixie, my older cat, is slowly getting used to sharing her house with a younger cat. She was six years old when I adopted her from the local shelter, and she's been with me for two years now. I've no idea how she ended up in the shelter. In summer she's a medium-haired stripey tabby, greyish...

Ravenous kitties by Dan Mahoney[_2_]
We feed our kitties both dry food and wet food. We leave dry food down so they can graze (but have to put it in a puzzle bowl to keep Ranger from scarfing it down too fast and puking), and I set out three dishes of wet food for breakfast and for dinner. A couple months ago I noticed that Sammy had...

Buffy found a new place to sit by jmcquown[_2_]
She climbed up on the back of my desk chair while I was sitting in it. I grabbed the camera and voila! https://i.postimg.cc/wjSLbXMk/buffyperch.jpg I guess this is what it would look like if cats could take "selfies". ;) Jill

Now that Helen and Dan have come back... by jmcquown[_2_]
everyone has left the newsgroup? I could keep constantly talking about Buffy but I sure don't like feeling like I'm talking to myself. Anyone got any anecdotes to share? Cats haven't stopped being amusing in the last few years, have they? Jill

Fun With Buffy by jmcquown[_2_]
I always know when she wants to play because she starts batting golf balls around. I sometimes rue the day I ever gave her a golf ball to play with. There are cat toys all over my living room. A couple of plush toys filled with catnip (Velcro closures, refillable. I store dried catnip in...
