^ ha. one of our old cats, a calico, did the same sort of stuff. she would treat her little toy furry mouse like the kitten she never had (poor thing) and bring it to us at night. we called it 'her baby.' she also loved the fireplace, but feared it also when it went 'crack!' throwing a spark her way.


she's actually there, in the dark, staring into the fire -- hard to see on my smartphone.

Wow, you'd think this was Classic Rendezvous, based on the number of feathers rankled by what ought to be a pretty benign topic.

Oops, almost forgot, obligatory cat pic:

I cleaned up the thread a bit, much like scooping out a litter box to get rid of the stinky stuff.

sorry to post so much, but i love cats. this looks like a photoshop layer of two pics, but is one. i was in the yard looking up to the window with our little kitten staring out and the sky's reflection coming off. it reminded me of one of my favorite albums, bill callahan's 'knock knock.'

Mr. Li resembles my younger son's Siamese mix, a robust 14-year-old 18-pounder with piercing blue eyes who stands guard at our driveway and loves to hang out in the garage with me and the boys when we work on cars or bikes. When a neighbor's beautiful Russian blue cat had a litter, my son and two of his pals adopted the three kittens. At that time, Will's cat was almost pure white, with a hint of a Siamese point on his nose. We call him the "Polaroid kitty," because over the years his fur has gradually darkened, particularly on the ears, face mask, and paws. Being a mix, he has all the best qualities of a Siamese and a domestic short hair.

Our other cat is an equally large (much fluffier and not as muscular) 7-year-old super-affectionate pure black female domestic longhair who loves to be a lap cat. My wife and my elder son trapped and rescued a litter of three feral kittens, raised them to be great pets, gave two to a neighbor, and kept Melanie (as in melanistic).

We are pleased that these two get along so well, which is not always the case with cats, as you know.

One word of advice/caution -- several years ago we lost 14-year-old Noir (yup -- we have this thing for black cats), the best cat we ever had, to Vaccine Associated Sarcoma. This tiny 7-pound rodent killing machine and "alpha female" who ruled over the two 18-pounders was also my home office companion, who loved to "help" me type on my computer. Veterinarians and Big Pharma claim VAS is extremely rare, but trust me, it is far more common than they want us to realize. I am a member of the VAS support group -- you can read about the number of early deaths and amputations caused by reaction to vaccines, particularly rabies. I am not anti-vaccine, but there is ample evidence that the antibodies remain active much longer than we are told, resulting in an excessively high frequency of booster shots, with the associated increased risk of VAS.

The story of our life is saving animals. We had no children of our own, so this is what we do. My wife grew-up with cats and I had a couple of them when growing-up as well.

This is one of my cat video productions.

My YouTube channel "earltuckian" has a popular five-part story about the adult feral Tom we tamed. He is named "Scruffy" and he now lives in my business building with his pal Fuzzy who is also a feral Tom.

Dang right. Takes a good heart and lack of machismo to love cats. Especially when it comes to saving them. Just love that pic of Daisy curled in her basket. Beautiful.

Funny how so many of the grey tigers look alike, isn't it? Must be a very common gene. Our grey looks much like many others here.

HA HA! Thanks for bringing this back on topic, guys. Love it.
I'd try to get my cat to ride along but I
would probably lose a lot of blood if I tried.
