Oh this is so cute. Cocoa looks like our Magic!!!
I love the name Magic! I have 4 cats that are all black. If I ever have another, I'm going to copy your name! :)
I have 6 cats. The first one was all gray and we named her Kaboodle. Two years later, we got a male all gray cat and named him Ditto!!! The others are Trixie, Rocky, Blue and Magic.
I started naming these cats something that distinguished them from each other, such as color, etc since I really didn't expect to be keeping them..they were all feral or kittens of a feral. So I have Whisker, Marmalade, Charcoal..names like that. There are 14 in all....if Slate stays, he'll be 15! Rarely are they all here together....only if the weather is really bad outside. Usually there are about 6 here at once.
HA-HA! Good gosh that is quite funny. Just the look on that cat's face. It's as if he's rolling his eyes at you.You do have a bloody sense of humour, Betsy. It gets me every time. Thank you my dear for the laughs before retiring to bed.Good night and sweet dreams, as you always say. Vince xo
He does look a little put out, doesn't he? ha.good night..and yes...sweet dreams! :)
hahaha can sleep, get a drink and a bath tooMaybe not the third one would be fun to come due
I'm sure he'd howl through a bathand give me a claw attack.ha.
Long sleeves are in needShould that ever become a deed
and gloves! ha.
That cat must love the fact that you have tilapia so often! -- silver fox
yeah, but we never share our fish. Can't imagine feeding 14 cats something on our dish.They don't usually get treatsthey have store brand dry food to eat.Sounds boring, I know.But so many siblings makes the budget slow.lol.Hey, wait. You're not Pat!I wouldn't have had to rhyme all that!
What an intelligent looking cat and it's speech is quite remarkable. Does the cat qualify for Mensa membership lolI've been AWL because my computer was playing up and I could not get onto the internet - thanks son for fixing it.
I'm sure he would qualify! What's a high IQ score for a feline, do you know? haha.I thought maybe you were on your way to Australia or something. :)
ha. i hope you find what you are looking for..what an overactive imagination you have.smiles.
Who, me? ha. I know..I've always been a little silly...
Not sure. But in a way they are more intelligent than us mere humans. Who ever hears of a cat spending hours travelling to and from work, holding down a job, paying through the nose to buy and run a house, a car, a jeep, all that clothing, food, schooling etc, etc. They get it ALL free!! We must be nuts!!The only 'down under' I'm likely to experience is under the blankets away from this winter ROFL
And did you miss me? lol
a jeep? well, now..that was random. lol...Of course I missed you. :)
Missed your previous posts but would say I was amused by your not so secret admirer. Do you have only one? lol. Is he really a multi millionaire? Loved you random act of kindness to him and his reaction. I did something which I will keep under wraps until nest time.
haha..yes, only one. The guys I work with say he has millions but you'd never know it. He certainly doesn't spend money on himself. He is there only to buy silver. He resells it by it's weight. Quite a little business he has going, I'd say. I told him he needs to buy a new truck so he doesn't catch his death of cold.I don't know when we'll do the random acts of kindness again. It was only for the month of February. So, you can share it any time you wish...or post it on your own blog..that would be fun, too!
Eddied cracks me up! (cats smarter then humans, that's a good one)
I think he forgot they have to lick themselves for a bath, eat mice and birds while they are still half alive, and eat without the help of fingers or hands. hahahaha....
Ahh! Crumbs she said, Boy! Eddie your up late!!Hi Christine and Betsy. Glad you had a laugh you two! lolBut cats ARE clever because they are very selective and want us only on their terms.Of course I agree Betsy that cats prefer not to use a knife and fork and I would prefer not to eat mice, rats and possums but they really do have it made - once they 'adopt' and train a new owner to pander to all their needs lol. But I do also take the point about licking themselves for a bath . . . . . . only our limited flexibility governed by our restricted anatomy prevents us doing so. And no Betsy I have not been on the whiskey or gin!! . . . . . but in a glorious silly mood ROFL
Yes, they really do have it made! Did you know cats sleep 70% of their lives? All those cat naps...and 9 lives to boot! haha.
There! What more need we say. QED as the mathematicians might say.And with that bon nuit.
sweet dreams! It's nearly morning there! haha.
Such a cute face! I love tilapia too : )Dubs sits in the kitchen sink because he likes to get a drink when we let the water run. Skip always goes crazy when we have fish. I never fed the cats people food, but Tom has spoiled him and gives him fish. The other two aren't even interested in it though.
Oh, that's funny because it's the mr. here that gives the cats scraps. I always say, 'they are cats...they have their own food!" haha.
Thanks for the poem... Silly. And if you gave ALL your cats table scraps, there would be nothing left for the humans. -- silver fox
that's what I'm always telling The Mr.....and they are never satisfied with one taste..they want a full meal! lol....
Just like Orson!
Fairly typical for a feline, I'm thinking! :)
Always think is bored to pets eat always the same, here the dogs eat always the same (sometimesou I add something lol) but you with 14 cats is imposible :)I made fish for ddinner tonight! xx
yum! We've been eating a lot of seafood lately! so good!
That's not fair of Cocoa to not invite the other cats :-)
it's called survival!
Oh, so it's eat fish from the sink or go hungry? I don't THINK so!
no, but you don't call 13 other cats over to share one bite you find in the sink...you scarf it down all by yourself! The only time I saw a cat offer food to another was a mama to her kittens. lol....
I don’t think I have ever had tilapia, but so many people I know eat it quite regularly. I must try some. Snow is falling again here tonight too… never seen so much in one winter except when I was a kid growing up in Quebec. I love it… but I am starting to think about spring a wee bit. Mostly because it is easier for me to get around. Ice is not my friend! Despite the storm, I was at a Mardi Gras concert at a friend’s church tonight. Such fun and such joyful gospel music – some pieces were sing-along. We had a great time, and there was also a children’s choir – so sweet. By the way, I thought the photo yesterday was a hat that had blown away or a very colourful toupée – not a cardinal’s butt! :-)
We had sleet all night and now it's snowing big fluffy flakes. We're staying inside today...just snuggling down and enjoying a quiet day together. Your concert sounds really fun...glad you got out and had a good time!That is so funny about that photo! When I called the mister over to my computer and said "Look at this neat shot I got" he stood there with a funny look on his face and I could tell he wasn't seeing what it was! That's when I thought I better put a caption under it. haha. A toupee....oh, I am laughing! (and wondering who in my neighborhood would have lost that! ha.) I could do a RAK and return it! lol...
So very funny! And Cocoa looks so cute and healthy. So good, you saved him last winter...
Yes, in fact it's tomorrow, the 3rd, that will be exactly one year since he showed up during a snow storm on our back porch! He's turned out to be a sweet, cuddy cat!And Chrystal...Slate has stayed quite a lot the last few days. And he evidently used the cat flap last night since he was in the kitchen this morning drinking from the water bowl! :)
Oh I am so glad for Slate, that he obviously decided he has found a real home by now! I noticed that some of your readers thought, that he might have 'belonged' to somebody. But even if this were true, if he prefers to become a member of your community of cats, he must have a reason for that, I guess. Most cats would not automatically choose to be part of the crowd...Christel (even though I must admit, dear Betsy, that your spelling of my name looked much more sophisticated!! Lol!)
Oh, I'm so sorry I did that to your name! I know better!The Mister and I talked about the possibility of Slate already having a home. He pointed out that he isn't neutered and almost everyone neuters their cats. And why doesn't he go home? Cats don't get lost. They can find there way home if miles away. He is starving and thirsty when he comes. And...he stayed the night last night for the first time. So, I suppose he has chosen us and we shouldn't feel like we've taken him from someone. He is a sweet cat and is being readily accepted by everyone here so I guess it's settled unless he decides to venture off to somewhere else. This is unlike Freckles, who came often for a week or two and then didn't stay. I wished she had stayed, though. I loved her funny little face. ha. Never saw her kittens, either. The last two times she came, she smelled like cigarette smoke, so I suppose she had a home already.
Oh please do not be sorry! It looked nice and I lliked it!I do agree that all of the Mister's points strongly indicate, that Slate was entirely on his own. And with -17° (C) in your region now, it is wonderful for him to have found such a shelter!
I love this!
