YW Jill!

Pi and Eddy's ages are just estimates from the rescue.

I remember Buffy's story from when you got her. I was very happy
for you. It's too bad Buffy was so intimidated by the other cat,
but now she's in a home where she can be herself.

When I open the door, usually there's three running to the door
expecting to go outside. Eddy, Pi and the two middle cats, Bebe
and EJ all get to go outside on long leashes when I have the
time. They always want to go out, but unfortunately my time is
limited and I can't take them out when I do yardwork, because
they need to be watched as they can tangle the leashes around
flowers and shrubs. But once they settle down they love to watch
the birds and goings on in the neighborhood.

Pirate never had any interest in going out. He's comfortable just
sitting in the window. And our newest, Lady, won't allow a
collar or harness put on her, so she stays in also. Fortunately
she doesn't seem to want to go out. She almost died of illness
and exposure when we found her, weighed only 3 pounds. Vet said
she should weigh 7. Maybe she remembers her former life and
would rather be comfortable indoors.

One of these days I'm going to d/l Thunderbird to participate
more, but time is limited with the cats and other things I do.
Years ago I spent more time on Usenet, and Outlook was useful,
but now just makes a mess of posts.

Later,


Hi Bill,

Might want to check out a freeware producd calls Xananews. Much
less intense setup than Thunderbird and pretty much has the
essentials right out of the box. Takes about 5 minutes from
download to usable interface then you can colorize things and so on
to your liking.

colourizing doesn't work on this ng.

Jill


Local view colorizing. Like once I download them, ones from me are
blue, ones to me are red and so on. Completely optional

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 owns this place (and me).

She's still a tad jumpy sometimes. If the television is on and a show
has a doorbell that sounds like mine, she startles. I say, "It's on TV"
and she relaxes. Good.

Odd thing about the doorbell. Sometimes when the *actual* doorbell rings
she runs and hides. Other times she marches towards the front door as if
she's expecting company.

Buffy and weather is another odd thing: Yesterday evening there was a
thunderstorm. Buffy was snoozing in her pyramid bed. There was some
thunder, some flashes of lighting. I was on the couch, reading. I saw a
flash of light out the window almost immediately followed by a very loud
clap of thunder. She bolted out of her bed like her tail was on fire. I
said, "It's okay sweetie, it's just noisy weather." She went and hid
anyway.

It's not like this is her first thunderstorm in 4 years. There are many
times where she just goes "Oh, okay". Last evening she chose to hide on
a chair under the dining room table.

Coincidentally, it was the first place she hid on the day I adopted her.
I brought her home, let her out of the carrier in the bedroom and showed
her where the food and litter box was. She went under my bed. A short
while later, she wasn't there. On that same day, she was on a chair
under the dining room table. I looked under the tablecloth, tapped my
fingers on the floor and said, "Hi, Buffy". She jumped down and I gave
her scritches. She's been ruling the house ever since. Happy belated
Buffy-versary!

Jill


Happy -versary, Jill and Buffy. She sounds such a sweetheart.

I don't know yet how my youngster Floki will cope with storms. We may
be about to find out as there is one forecast this evening here.
Trixie my other cat is already curled up with her paws over her eyes.
She's rarely concerned by weather unless it interrupts her comfortable
sleep.

Floki on the other hand is up and down on and off my desk all day.
Right now he's sort of sitting on my shoulder with his back paws on my
chair back and the front paws on my shoulder. Cute, but he's getting
too big to do that for much longer.


Floki sounds like a playful hand full! I've never had a kitten so I can
only imagine. I love hearing about him and I'd like to hear more
about Trixie, too. This newsgroup needs a bit of traffic. Seems like
most folks have abandoned it for Facebook.

Jill

Jill


Yeah, I can't be bothered with facebook. Just not my sort of thing.

Floki is smacking the cr*p out of the door snake right now. Well I call
it a door snake, but it looks like a long skinny toy lion, with whiskers
and a furry mane. He's having fun.

The food he gets through though. It's so long since I had a kitten that
I'd completely forgotten what bottomless pits their stomachs are
Every time I walk in the kitchen he's there asking for more kibble. I'd
say he's doubled his size since he decided to move in.

OK, so I just discovered that the little ratbag has chewed the cable off
my spare keyboard. He really must be hungry!
