The kitties have discovered “Private dining!” It’s a way to eat without someone snitching your treats!

Tortuga has a room with a view. Wanda Heart is the one viewing. Lol

Callie is admiring the dining room too. (Or the treats?)

A peaceful meal.

Tortuga are well but didn’t clean her plate.

Callie must have come looking for leftovers after she ate her favorites off of her own plate.

The plate is gone?

Okay Callie. I guess you worked up an appetite with that belly dance. A couple of extra treats.

I think our smiles tonight come from Callie!

Have a great night everyone! :heartshape:

It was an interesting day today but I’ll have to come later with that story. Anyone here have any Scam attempt stories? It’s been a lot of hurry up and wait! :lol: Funny how that can eat up a day! I still found time for some kitty expressions that left me smiling though. Cats are great at sharing. They always have opinions about everything around them!


Something is going on around here.

You have my attention so now, give me yours. Pets?

This is an interesting new tone of voice. I guess I’m still learning human speak. It sounds like it could be about something with big ears!

Question mark tail!

I think Mom should get off the phone.

The best way to end a long day is to find a place to cuddle up.

Ask a cat to come and share a nice box with you!

Bj and Flowers would love for everyone to join them.

To all the humans and kitties out there, sending a wink from BJ and a Clowder
of purrs!

I may not be on tomorrow but I’ll ask Banjo to check on everyone here. :redheartpump:

Oh, no. I hope everything is ok, and that all your purr-sonal info is still secure.

Take care.

rubysmama rubysmama It appears there was something attempted but I caught it immediately and did not respond. I alerted the proper places and now wait to see if anything else happens. I have heard that this type of thing occurs a lot these days. Let me just say, NEVER respond to any email that asks for any purr sonal info. Even if it is a place you have shopped at in the past and they have rewards programs, special offers, etc.. Any place that you have done business with should already have the only info they need. If someone does ask for your info, Report these things to the proper authorities and check all your accounts with any company for odd activity. I know we all get put on hold a lot these days but it is better to be patient and be safe.
I’m lucky that I have a purrsonal assistant. ;):bicolorcat:

I can always count on Banjo! A post from a cats point of view.


Hello TCS! I have the phone and I am in charge of everything tonight!
003A1CC3-E804-4276-BF77-E44F95005B30.jpeg

I put on a little bit of fluff tail while I am doing guard duty. Anything out there that I need to see? Question mark tail!
A8AFD3CC-051B-4EE8-9D03-A1CA7D405640.jpeg

I better do a sniff test to see if there are any strange scents. A cat can always tell by the smell.
E69BBB3D-A648-46DC-8517-50FD31594672.jpeg

I don’t smell any creatures and I don’t see any.
62AEE6E0-3D70-414B-80F7-EED6D5B5FF69.jpeg

I guess it’s a little bit too early for Froggie to join me.

I have everything under control and all is well at Chez Banjo. :kitty:( hee hee )
989ACFD2-36BD-41E2-ABF6-E502590F6A14.jpeg

I guess I can take a little cat break......
2865A610-7C20-4F1C-A1F3-4ADB4E45225D.jpeg

And relax a minute....
5BDAB391-9278-4C9A-A81E-B9F088AD0509.jpeg

Until Froggie arrives. Ribbit needs me too.

Okay! Signing off for now!

Have a purrfect night everyone! This post is Banjo approved. :greenpaw::bicolorcat::redheartpump:

LOL, scam story. I got a call from a very officious person claiming to be from the IRS (they NEVER call, BTW, any IRS call is a scam), saying that there was a problem with my tax return, and demanding all sorts of info. Now, my only income is SSD, and I don't FILE a tax return. However, being the twisted human that I am, I replied, "OH GOODNESS GRACIOUS MERCY ME! How did that happen? My son does all my taxes. I'll call him right away. He works in your Fraud Tracing department!" CLICK

I got that same call a couple of years ago. Want to get rid of unwanted callers? Tell them you are sooooo sorry but you aren’t feeling well and then make hairball noises! :thumbsup:

Glad you were alert and realized something wasn't right. It's so frustrating, though, that so many fraudsters are out there trying to steal from honest people. :angryfire:

Hey Banjo! Don't look now, but someone's stretching their claws behind you. :catman:

I am always very careful and noticed immediately!

Banjo missed that! Lol That’s where Ribbit was sitting too! She must have been focused on her work here. ;)

N NY cat man I haven’t gotten one using insurance as a reason but I did get the IRS one. The news had reported that people who had threatened to turn these particular scammers in had subsequently had home invasions! Eek! I realized quickly that it was a scam and I just kept saying,” Bless you!” The guy said ,” You don’t understand”, and I replied ,” Yes I do and I am still saying, Bless you.” The guy kept trying to make me believe that I had a problem and shake me up but no matter what he said, my reply was the same. Bless you. After about 20 Bless you’s the guy started to sound ...... unsettled? “Lady, please listen to me. Stop blessing me! “ He finally whispered into the phone, “Don’t ever answer this number again and don’t call it back. You are going to be okay.” Then he hung up. I have always wondered if he left what he was doing to go do something different? Lol That was years ago.

Lari Lari I get those warranty calls too. Those are “auto” mated calls. :thumbsup: I never had a warranty either. I don’t answer numbers I don’t recognize these days unless I know some company is supposed to call. I rarely get caught answering anything like that now. Blocking only works temporarily for those automated things but I did find that if I immediately go to saying,” Please leave a message” in my most auto mated tone of voice, I don’t get more of those for a long time.:lol:


Spoiler alert!

If diapers bother you.....

I like using my sense of humor on the human scam calls. Besides the hairball treatment, when I had Sarah there was the OMG my child has a bad diaper! Can you hold on please? Uhhh! What is that?!?!? Ohhhh! Oh no! Stop! It’s still happening! No more spinach for her! Nooooooooooooooo!
Click! Those people NEVER called back but I couldn’t stop Laughing.

Another one I like to use as a permanent ending is the ,” Will you be my friend?” I would love to talk to someone about a problem. Do you know anything about fungus? They always answer “No”, very quickly but try to continue so I say, “Well, you sound very nice so could you advise me on where to get good coupons? I love to use coupons at the store. Do you use coupons? A penny saved is a penny earned! Coupons are fantastic. Don’t you think? I could share with you if you give me your phone number and address!” Click! They never call back but :flail:
Don’t let them spoil your day, make them give you a giggle!

I have been really busy here. Lots of extra stuff going on, including sorting out some stuff and throwing out things. Hmmmm. Tonight Banjo is too busy to help me post! Rats! I had hoped for her help again. Maybe tomorrow night?

The thoughts of a cat?
Froggie didn’t show up last night!

I hope mom didn’t let him get into the trash can!

Froggie?!?!? Are you in here?

Have you noticed that Banjo seems to be a bit off her game the past couple of nights?

Human distractions do affect the cats!

What do you think Flowers? Should we help her out?

Well BJ, she knows to follow the eye of a cat!

You go hide again and I’ll seek!

I never, never get tired of Banjo and Froggie!

I also never, never feel a moment's guilt about lying to scammers. Another good one is, "OH, while you're on the phone, what's a good home remedy for diarrhea? I can't get rid of...I HAVE TO GO NOW!"
Banjo and Froggie keep me intrigued. That relationship has continued a very long time and I love watching Banjo protect Froggie from the other cats. It’s interesting to me too that she enjoys watching all the frogs but is particularly that specific frog. I have to look very closely to identify him by his markings but she seems to know which one he is immediately. I know cat vision is greater than mine but he must have a special swagger when he hops or something!

You Have to go?!?!? :lol: Perfectly expressed. I didn’t exactly lie about the diaper thing. :oops: Your version works too though!:fear:

Cats find pleasure in the simplest things. If only we could all have this much fun with a piece of paper! Is anyone else finding an increased interest if paper products lately? Maybe it’s got something to do with me trying keep all rolls tissue and paper towels out of the reach of kitties lately? Lol

8FE9CFD7-E8AE-4001-8898-328967CC1EE7.jpeg

I made the mistake of leaving a paper towel beside Muffin.
35E545CD-62E2-43B6-BAB7-2C5FE41D0F18.jpeg

We may expect a feral to only go for a moving prey but...
25E4B856-674D-442F-B41E-B467B15F6C52.jpeg

Perhaps she thought the prey was INSIDE the paper towel. Lol
8EF59B78-4B07-4BF5-B565-B70B882EAB02.jpeg

Maybe the prey escaped?
9E788230-7E4A-431E-949B-0CA706A40E06.jpeg

Or one of the other cats took it!
07C488BD-470D-42A5-B97E-D81F938EC634.jpeg

You didn’t want that back did you?
99B15E25-1333-4B60-B860-8371C332E91F.jpeg

Okay. Next time could you leave one that has a bug inside?

Purrs sent along with a request for any bugs anyone wants to send. :heartshape:
