Thank you! It was my wife who picked the names Casper and Gambini for the two male kittens that I rescued in a single week; I was the one who picked the names Mars and Snickers

With a name like that, you'd think that he's a fearless gangsta of a kitten, but in reality, Gambini is the most skittish feline I've ever met!

😩 Oh, no! We're trying to unload as many as we can! Problem is, while all six of Snickers' new babies have already been spoken for, there are few takers for the older cats - exactly because they are older cats.

[QUOTE=billnuke1;15403659]They can win you over with their crazy antics one moment QUOTE]

My oldest 19 year old female - Zoey, loves Friskies dried food, thus we keep a bowl ready. We don't indulge the 2 - 8 mos old male "kittens" very often as in general dried food can give male cats urinary tract issues long term. They love this stuff none the less. One of the goombah's was sniffing around, found the bowl of Friskies inside the generally unused toaster oven, pried it open, dragged out the bowl and finished the contents. He is now not interested in dinner. Smart friggin cat, not sure which one, suspect the trouble maker, the one we almost called "Rocket". I mean what's next ?, a padlock for the fridge door ?

She wants to be the "cool aunt"! (Also-- hey, I also want to snuggle them all, so who am I to criticize her??)

I have no idea what a moka pot is, but that’s a French press made by Frieling.

A cat watches…

A cat waits…

Arrrgh! A cat trips you in the middle of the night! He made a little noise…I put the light on…And: taa, daaa!

Seriously though! Some of

This one may come in, too! It holds up to six bicycles. I may decide to put my two double pro stands in here… Two more single pro stands are going outdoors now that I can work outside year round!

My babies! Bases are a problem…can’t seem to find one! One of my mover/helpers may have “donated” it to the metal guy!

I have this space, too!

Probably will end up being a tool box!
hese bicycles will be ridden quite a bit and put back on these stands here in this room! My little museum place…

when didst thee relocate to FL?

when Hamilton Disston founded the town perhaps he longed for those eight month Minnesota winters and decided to name it after the one in that state

I left Cape Cod the day after Thanksgiving! Arrived in St Cloud, Fl, 27.5 hrs later! 10 fill ups and 50-60+ degrees, if not more degrees, later!
Moved into my new, bought on line home, December 17th!

Oh, yeah. Can’t forget this guy! Max! Occasionally meowed, but wouldn’t eat or drink all the way here! When we finally stopped and I put him into the trailer where we would live another almost three weeks he was back to normal! The trailer looked like it been struck by a tornado! He left Massachusetts winter and went right to Florida fall! He’s not fat! He’s fluffy! I brushed him at least four times a day! I still brush him at four times a day and get very little fur!

did he stay fairly calm for the trip or did he get agitated?

have spoken with owners who felt it necessary to sedate their cat for a long car trip.

enjoyed seeing all the space you have in your new abode, time to get busy and start filling it up with two-wheelers...

many of us cannot "turn 'round" in our "workshops"...

He broke my heart as he spent most of his time with head in the corner of his box!
He might have moved around when it was dark, too.
Of course I’m pretty sure a cats answer to most of life’s problems is sleep…I’d like to think that many hours and miles were spent with Max asleep!
He also didn’t poop or pee until he got back into the trailer!
I had read, before we left, that cats can go for 24hrs or so between “rest stops”…
He had his food and a deep dish of water in his box.
