M maggiedemi I still have to watch spell check on that every time I type it! Lol Spellcheck likes Chowder?!?! Purrs forever!

tarasgirl06 tarasgirl06 Yes, Hams is banished from being around those kitties. They liked it until it moved. Every kitty is different. Wanda Heart is young and she was less suspicious of it. She will play with it and so will Tortuga. Some liked it, some ignored it after investigating and some really dislike it! I think it might be a favored toy with someone like Precious. He likes to be more aggressive with toys. He may eventually pull the fluff off of it though! Blue, Goldie and Mountain are suspicious of everything. They like the spring toys but even those were suspect at first. Mountain is the main one of that group to like toys. Blue and Goldie prefer plain old catnip and snuggling. Funny but Precious ends up with many of the toys. He likes the big catnip kicker toys too. Most of the others don’t care for them. Lady has actually been carrying around those long fluff tails lately and meowing as she runs around with them. It’s really cute. She has captured her prey!

Yeah, I always disable spellcheck and predictive auto-fill because they wreak havoc with my attempts to communicate. :sigh::gaah:
Jcatbird Jcatbird a friend sent us two huge catnip kickers and at certain times they are very PAWpular, especially with Elvis, who likes to get quite physical with his toys. I just wish they were refillable, because we have some fresh dried catnip, catnip/silvervine, and silvervine and I'd like to see him get really ripped and kick these toys!

Mamanyt1953 Mamanyt1953 I guess you need to Lick that problem! Lol
I did save the kitties from the rat! Blue was protecting his family though. They have always been extremely close as a family and it always warms my heart to see it. From the first time I spotted the kittens, Blue has been there to guard them. He certainly criticized me from allowing an intruder! :lol:

I guess Precious is more like Elvis. He really gets going with the kickers. He carries them around in his mouth and when he puts them down, he attacks them again. I bet Elvis is fun to watch too. It would be nice if they were refillable. Maybe you could cut an opening you could deal with Velcro! I do see a risk of the Velcro being kicked open though. Lol Raining catnip and Silvervine!

M maggiedemi I imagine that spellcheck causes all sorts of problems..I often don’t see the incorrect spelling or wording on this screen. It can be funny too though! On the thread about BJ there was a spell corrected word that was very funny but also made me blush! I really wish I had caught that one but fortunately everyone responded with laughter. I was very relieved! :blush:

N NY cat man You might be able to find that information by googling it or going to the discussion site of the company that makes it. I’m sure others have wanted to know the same thing. It can be a pain! With vision issues I am often divided on whether it helps or just interferes! It’s the awkward corrections that get to me. Wrong word can convey a completely different message!

I am constantly having to go back and change what spell check has 'corrected' on me. It is a pain in the butt, and I haven't figured out how to dump it yet. The instructions that came with this pad don't cover that, so maybe I'm stuck with it.
Go to > Settings > General > click on Keyboard and you can find Auto-Correction and Spell Check and the rest of the functions of the keyboard and enable or disable whichever functions you need or don't need.

I gave Precious his chance at the Hamster. :oops: I took him in the back bedroom so none of the others would affect his reaction. Faster than a speeding bullet, he’s a force to be reckoned with!

Why are we in here?

Lol!

I think we’ll try dancing with some of the other kitties. Precious is a little too enthusiastic! Tylenol? :doh:

To be continued.....

Have a great night everyone!:heartshape:

I don't have a tablet, so not sure, but strongly think that you should be able to disable it. Go into control panel and see if you can tweak it, if you haven't already. It's a computer, and any computer that I know of can be tweaked.

Precious IS (precious, that is!):redheartpump::loveeyes:
A long time ago, there was a sweet panther prince in my life. I used to hold him and we would dance. My song for him is "Tupelo Honey" by Van Morrison. It fit him perfectly. Or should I say, "PURRfectly." :redheartpump::redheartpump::redheartpump:
(Yeah, I know it's not the video thread but I hope it can stay. For my Sun.)

Oh Jcatbird, I wish you were here to catch a kitty for me. I found a rescue for her, but now I can't catch her. I have scared her off I'm afraid, plus there are about eight boy cats there who are bothering her, keeping her away. I am feeling like a trapping failure.

surya surya Hmmmm. Wish I was there too! The boys are bothering her huh? Anyway to corral them temporarily? Sometimes I had to clap and startle them away. I got the scent of the female on stuff that I put around after I got her in order to bring the boys back. Maybe Feliway spray? No way are you failing! Some cases are just really tough. You didn’t scare her off, the boys did. Can you go a little outside her usual area? She is hiding from the guys. Once they mate her, she will return though. I’ve seen that many times. Just when I though the female was gone, her heat ended and she came back. Usually escorted by one male protector too. Even if she gets pregnant and maybe because she does, she’ll be back for food. I found that especially with younger females and much older ones, they really tried to avoid getting pregnant and having with males would be very threatening. Once they get the scent of another female or she isn’t so sweet smelling, they’ll disperse some and she’ll calm down. It’s not you, it’s the male cats. I’d run too if eight males were chasing me! Not something I would ever had happen though !Lol

M maggiedemi Precious is a very big boy which makes it kind of funny to call him Precious. He is though! When I was trying to get him, Mama and siblings I would call them,” come here little Precious ones!” He was always the first one to come. He was just a little guy then and I didn’t even know he was male but he was the one most responsive to the word precious. It stuck! Lol Now he’s my big Precious one! Little Lambie is his sister and Saffron his brother. Lambie was little but the other two, very big kitties. Lambie and Saffron were also my babies but when they got offered a great home with less kitties, I had to let them go. It was really hard and I still miss them. Each time I go through my photos and see them, it’s very bittersweet.

tarasgirl06 tarasgirl06 Love the video and a great story about dancing with Sun! I don’t see any reason why that video would not be able to stay. Every now and then we need a tribute like that here. I used to hold Sarah and sometimes I danced holding her and her baby Smokey. Now I do it with Bonjure and Smokey. Arms full! Lol Bonnie would stay in my arms every second if he could. Lol He’d like one of those baby carriers that are like a kangaroo pouch!

BTW Precious did play with the Hamster but as always, killed the toy! Lol I watched as he pulled the battery cover off and then pulled the batteries out. He then carried the Hamster around. He held his head up proudly with the prey in his mouth! Lol He later buried the Hamster under the blanket. I kept the batteries and cover away from him. Only four kitties haven’t seen it yet. The Bengal boys and Mama. The boys may be the final chapter for that toy! It will be a supervised visit!

BJ received a gift today! I got a notice of a package at the post office. It was from a friend and fellow cat lover in another state. She knows what BJ likes! :lol: This was really funny! I opened the package and immediately laughed. No note included but I knew it was for BJ.They even came in a little felt bag and case.

He doesn’t like toys but took interest in this right away!

You want to read my book?

Sit with me and we’ll read.

I like them!

I don’t know about this book though.

I already know about wildflowers.

I’d rather read something else.

Got any interesting books?
41671D23-BC24-4128-8353-704DEC063AFD.jpeg

No, I don’t want to read about birds either! Seriously Mom! I do know about birds!

All those books but nothing I would like?

:flail:
I should have known! Always likes the ladies! Bj is a different kind of kitty and he loved the glasses! :dunno::lol: Every cat is different! The friend bought these from someone selling a collection of a thousand dolls. She said she has received manycute stories from customers buying the dolls and all the many accessories she has listed but the story about BJsmithing my glasses and enjoying them, as well as being an older feral rescue really topped her list. She asked if my friend could get a picture if BJ liked the glasses. Yep! There will be a little more about the glasses tomorrow! Someone here is a little jealous! Can you guess?

Have a night of wonderful visions!
