Nothing to report in Southern Florida by dgk
WInter is over. It was a sort of wet cool winter. It's my first in Florida so I don't have much to go on but everyone tells me that it was a cold winter. Not by my standards but there were a few weeks where it was too cool to hang out by the pool. Now we have a week where every day is going to be...

Spicey laptime memory by Takayuki
Sometimes, Spicey stirs from a dream of a memory, and a memory of a dream reverberates through the rooms as a small, plaintive cry. That is when she feels love in her memory, and the memory of her love draws her into my lap for a cuddle and a purr. She feels a loss that she didn't know was loss,...

She Bit Me! by jmcquown[_2_]
It wasn't her fault. Buffy got very upset because there was a raccoon on the patio and it came right up to the glass door. I didn't see it, it was already dark outside. She's got very sharp eyes. She started hissing and growling and then yowling. I thought it might be a cat. (She truly...

It's Official: Buffy Is an *Only* Cat by jmcquown[_2_]
Yesterday I was in the "den" on the couch reading a book. Buffy had been lounging in the living room. All of a sudden she came bounding into the room, leaped up on the back of the couch and started YOWLING. I looked out the window. Uh oh! There was a black cat with white socks sitting right...

Colorado cat rescue by Austin Davis
In southeastern New Mexico I captured a tiny wild starving kitten. I kept it for seven days wile I fed it, cleaned it up and calmed it down. It had fleas so bad they jumped off it and ate me alive. I found a no kill shelter in a nearby town and took it there. The cages were small, the woman working...

Cats DO change.. by The New Other Guy
GLyN has never been very interested in human food, other than an occasional sniff. UNTIL recently. For about a year, if he's inside when I make a sandwich, he's been happy to take a slice or 2 of roast beef or even pastrami. But only 1 or 2, never more. And he's TOTALLY polite about it, he...

Ping: Jill - weather by MaryL[_2_]
Jill, how is your weather? There have been reports of nasty weather, including tornadoes, heading your way. I hope things have started to settle down by now. I'm thinking of you and Buffy. MaryL

Flock of Ibisis by dgk
I'm not sure what the plural of Ibis is, but the bird itself is a pretty big (maybe 1 foot) white bird with a long red beak. The big difference between them and the Egret is that the Ibis travels in big packs and the Egrets are mostly solo. Well a big flock of Ibisis walked around my house...

Duffy - update by MaryL[_2_]
Duffy had his first checkup since I started his medication for hyperthyroidism. TED says he is in great shape--"remarkable" for his age. He has gained 6 ounces, which is just what we wanted to see. He has a good appetite and lots of energy. MaryL

Buster's trick by Takayuki
Buster was standing on his tippy-toes and watching curiously as I was getting some clothes out out a dresser drawer. Then, he suddenly jumped right in! I went to get him out, but he somehow got out of reach and disappeared. I'd watched enough Maru videos to guess that he'd gotten into the...

Thanks for the Valentine's Card! by jmcquown[_2_]
Thank you, Julie & Rusty. What a nice surprise! :) I told Buffy she got a card in the mail. She blinked at me and went back to sleep. ;) Happy belated Valentine's Day to you, too! Jill

I Took Her Toy Away by jmcquown[_2_]
Buffy has lots of toys. Glitter balls, mylar balls, golf balls, mousies that rattle, soft toys filled with catnip. You get the picture. Today she was playing with something I didn't recognize... turned out to be a dead, dessicated Anole lizard. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carolina_anole At...

Buffy & Birds - "Cat TV" by jmcquown[_2_]
Purrs for everyone caught in a snowstorm. It's not nearly as cold as in some parts of the Eastern US (no snow here) but it's decidedly Winter temps in southern SC. I've been scattering wild bird seed on the patio the last few days. Buffy simply doesn't seem to care about birds. Persia was...

Duffy has hyperthyroidism by MaryL[_2_]
I have been concerned about Duffy for some time. He has lost weight (but not as much as most cats his age, according to TED) and he walks around howling a very loud, complaining sound--not like the cute "trilling" sound that previously was normal with him. I suspected hyperthyroidism and took...

ancient Chinese domestic cats by Jack Campin
Cats domesticated humans in China 5000 years ago: http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2016/01/160125100118.htm but they were a different species from the modern domestic cat (as found everywhere, including China). Look them up: Prionailurus bengalensis. Pretty little...
