Macchiato is technically feral, born outside behind where I work. His 3 brothers split, but he's hung around and let's me scratch the top of his head everyday.

Fritz and Felix have gotten used to having a Big Spanish Dog about the house. And the dog hasn't eaten them yet, so everything's cool.

Three cats

This is Virgil, my first cat. He was behind me just now, bored, as I was posting on Bike Forums. “Are you still looking up bikes now?”


This is Maxwell, my second cat and Little Leia, my third.

Anyone know if a study has been done about the long-term effects of random cat hair included in a loose-ball bottom bracket install?

Hair of all types is a magnet for oil. So, it might be a good thing in the right ratio. But this is not the scientific study that you were looking for was it?

Nails, teeth, whatever Fritz has, he likes to test it on Drinka. She's sweet and seems to tolerate all of it.

This guy showed up on my back porch this morning.

Very vocal. Talking to me. Responding to my voice.

But, it wouldn't let me look at it.

A little milk and water, and this evening it was coming to me.

Then a few tentative finger chews. Then neck rubs. And.... NOW...

There is cat hair in every single bearing I own by now. Except the Maxicars

I have enough sample size to say it makes no significant difference!!

I have three cats, Nora (15yo), Hopper(13yo), and Puppy(2yo). I foster and I'm up to 307 fosters in 16 years. I love cats. Never had one as a child but thanks to my husband, I started collecting. Love them. Cats are amazing.
