Bj is a different kind of kitty and he loved the glasses! :dunno::lol:
BJ loves glasses, and we love BJ. :redheartpump:

There will be a little more about the glasses tomorrow! Someone here is a little jealous! Can you guess?
Hmmm... someone that likes frogs, maybe? :catman:

Thanks for all your lengthy and helpful posts in the Sweet cat with redirected aggression, please help: euthanasia may be the only option. thread. That is such a difficult situation, and one I hope with the help of TCS members, the OP will be able to solve.

Oh, have you checked out the Thread Devoted To Sharing Your Favorite Albums And Songs - 2020 lately? We're doing "British Invasion" songs, so might be some you remember. :musicnote:

tabbytom tabbytom It’s been quite a surprise that BJ likes this. I’ve never had a cat that would tolerate such a thing, much less enjoy it! The TCS Newslteer just arrived and it talks about cats being nearsighted. Hmmmm. I wonder what my ophthalmologist would think if I brought BJ in for a prescription? :lol:

rubysmama rubysmama BJ is a smart fellow! Lol He sat quietly with me to read and stayed focused on the second book. Lol
You guessed correctly! I had a feeling you would.

M maggiedemi Rose colored glasses would be nice. BJ is a ladies man! I guess now he’d like a Barbie of his own!:lol:

I guess Precious is more like Elvis. He really gets going with the kickers.
I don't even NEED misspelled words on the screen! I read that TWICE as "gets going with the kNickers," and thought..."But I thought he was neutered!"

LOVE BJ in the glasses! He looks like a CEO! The Cat Executive Officer!

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!

This is king of boring and it’s making me sleepy.

I’d rather read something else.

Got any interesting books?

No, I don’t want to read about birds either! Seriously Mom! I do know about birds!
View attachment 316816
All those books but nothing I would like?

Okay, now you’re getting the idea!

This Barbie is a living doll mom! I do like ladies.

: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!
:coolcat::heartshape:

LOL! BJ is not only really cute and smart, but incredibly tolerant as well. How in the world did you manage to keep those glasses on him?

Well Hi jefferd18 jefferd18 It’s great to see you here! Very glad you joined the thread. There are so many fantastic people who have given me and the kitties support here as we get through life at Chez Catbird! :lol: It’s been ......an adventure?!?!? Lol

Bj loved the compliments! Although he is a sweet cat and tolerant, he has NO tolerance for any kind of toys! He thinks they are ridiculous. On the other hand, he loves certain other things. Especially things on his head! I think it goes back to staying concealed under things as a feral. I didn’t have to do anything to keep the glasses on him. He fell asleep wearing them! Lol He also thinks he can win the heart of any girl kitty.(true) He has acted as protector, comforter, sympathizer and dashing male role model. He’s a very unique fellow. He was often stealing my glasses and liked wearing them. That kind of started us taking notice of his interest in hats, glasses and even a pair of booties for his feet. He may be swashbuckling? If you go back to the beginning of his story, I thought this big feral might eat me. Instead he made his own decision about his life. He is pretty amazing! I continue to learn more about cats each day.
How about you? Ferals?

I had to take the glasses away! Lol

You really won the lottery for laid back kitties when you rescued him.

Glasses, hats, and booties? I expect to see him on the cover of GQ pretty soon. :)

tarasgirl06 tarasgirl06 Catsanova fits! :lol: Flowers does tend to try and keep watch over him now but she didn’t catch him looking at Barbie! I think that Tarasgrl award also fits!

Mamanyt1953 Mamanyt1953 Still laughing. The truth is, BJ is the one who gets along well with knickers! Or maybe without? :oops: Precious likes Kickers. Did I type that right? Lol

BJ as CEO! Lol Very good one! Of course Banjo still hopes to become President but BJ has been “grooming” her for that position. He has taught her well.

jefferd18 jefferd18 I did win the lottery with BJ. You would be amazed by the story of BJ. Besides guarding ever member of his colony, he guarded me. The whole Clowder is made up of wonderful kitties, each with inspiring stories.

M maggiedemi BJ probably has a genealogy that includes the cats from sailing ships. We do know that many came to this country and continued to exist after leaving a life on the sea. Perhaps you missed these?
(Not exactly a quote from Nancy Sinatra but....)
These boots are made for stalking!

Normally a parrot would be on the shoulder of a pirate but BJ prefers a dashing hat.

Yep! Possibly a pirate. :flail:

rubysmama rubysmama :flail:BJ is giving Banjo a run for her money! I suppose she is following in her Dad’s footsteps! If he is CEO and she earns enough at modeling to fund her campaign, perhaps she and all the ambassadors and state representatives will be able to keep helping kitties!

On to the post for tonight! Since these family members have a lot in common, Banjo was very interested in following in BJ’s paw prints. Froggie May have taught her to be a little green with envy too. :oops:

rubysmama rubysmama BJ and Mitsy and the parents to Whistle and Banjo. It can be a bit of a Bayan tree since most have some connection! Lol
LOL. BTW, anyone else have to Google "Bayan tree"? Or just me. I think I need to borrow some of BJ's books on plants! :lol:

Can you imagine Banjo at feline school, and showing the other cats the above picture and saying "That's my Dad. He's a former FERAL". They'd never believe her. :catlove:
