Hi Tina,

I heard about Boyfriend and you did post (at least once) about your
new kitties.¬* I guess that's about the time you lost your access.¬* Glad
to see you back!¬* Any hope for pics of Nelli and Garfie?

Jill


Nice to hear from you too, Jill. I do have some pics of the girls, but
NIN doesn't allow binaries, or didn't, has that rule changed? They are
known, collectively, as the Poshgirls. Their pedigree names are
Shakirah Nelli Furrtardo and Shakirah Cindi Lawpurr. Awful eh? I
wondered why, then when I looked at their pedigree it became clear.
Their mother is called Tribalife Pussy Cat Doll! The Pussy Cat Dolls
are a girl band so it seemed a good idea for mine to be The Poshgirls
;-) They are very beautiful.


Smokey is just Smokey and Cali was just Cali, but Cleo's full name was CleoKatra. Everyone else thought it was just weird, so it never got used much. Although Smokey has the most diminutives of her name and she responds to most of them. Pokey and Smokey Poke being the most obvious.

I'm sure they're beautiful! I know NIN doesn't allow binaries. If you
take pics you can upload them to any number of photo sites post links.

The pics are on my phone, and I've cracked the screen unfortunately.
Nelli is described on her pedigree as a Red Lynxpoint, which is
basically red tabby tail and flamepoint. Garfie is called red on her
pedigree. She's red tabby and very orinj. They are litter sisters. Ex
show cats and breeding queens. The breeder specified that they should
never be parted and to give their last owner her due, when her child
became allergic, she did keep to that. That's why I got two girlies.
I'm not entirely sure why the breeder didn't want them to be parted, as
most of the time they don't like each other ;-)

Sorry about Boyfriend. Hope all is well.

I went into the bedroom and the next thing Ganzi let out a wail like I just stood on his tail then hugged my leg with claws out so I let out a wail as well

Bonnie decided to attack Ganzi at the point. Full on ears flat, growling and Ganzi had to retreat to the top of my bedside locker and Bonnie still wanted to kill him

5 minutes later they're curled up in the hallway washing each other

It's a cat thing

I've never had more than one cat at a time. I can tell you, both Persia
(RB) and Buffy *yowl* if they even catch sight of another cat. It's a
horrific sound. You'd think banshees were after them!

LOL! Also ouch!

Yes, cats can be interesting. Years ago, when Waffles was still alive,
I was getting ready to take his littermate Pickles to the vet. To say
that Pickles hated the cat carrier was an understatement. At that time,
I had a soft-sided carrier that could be zipped and unzipped along the
length of the top, but there was also a zipper that went around three
sides of the end, so you could use either method to put them in or take
them out.

I was afraid that if I used the top opening, Pickles would get out again
before I could zip it closed. I decided to stand the carrier on end and
put Pickles in headfirst. That way by the time she turned around and
dealt with gravity, I'd have it zipped shut. As I started to stuff her
in headfirst, she let out a scream like I've never heard from any cat.

Waffles was in the hallway watching, and when Pickles screamed, Waffles
jumped me from behind. I dropped Pickles and we never did get to the
vet. I was shocked, but I wasn't really angry with Waffles, because he
was just defending his sister.

LOL I can picture that, Joy! Persia (RB) would fight tooth and nail
against getting into the soft sided carrier. Top, side, didn't matter.
Once she was in there she promptly started yowling and got so upset
she'd throw up.

I lure Buffy in through the zippered opening on the end with a bit of
crunchy cat kibble. She thinks she's getting treats. Once in the
carrier she settles down without complaint. I'm sure she wonders what's
going on but she doesn't put up a fuss.

When I got Pickles into a Carrier, she would yowl all the way to the
vet. On the way home, she would repeatedly throw herself against the
end of the carrier. She actually broke two that weren't constructed for
that sort of treatment.
