Yes, it's funny how cats seem to have an innate ability to name themselves- but that's only if we pay attention to what they are telling us.
I always watch to see if the kitty responds to whatever name I try out. If they don’t, I keep trying out names until they do respond. So, I guess all the kitties here chose their own names. Lol IFF made a sort of uff sound and when I imitated it, he came running. :runningcat:I don’t know what it meant in cat language but in human it meant a flying kitty!:)

Shakespeare’s nickname has become Shaksie.
Oh I like Shaksie even better than Shakey! :thumbsup:

Chesapeake is called Chessie
I like that one too, it sounds nice. :)

Damien Wayne Sprout
Damien is a classy name. Not sure about the rest of it though. :lol:

I always watch to see if the kitty responds to whatever name I try out.
Maggie gets called Beautiful more than her own name. She even answers to it. Demi answers to Baby cause he's my lil baby. :vancat:

maggiedemi maggiedemi Shaksie is cute. For Damien Wayne Sprout, I kind of like Sprout but Cloud ( with a silver lining) was pretty. Sprout makes me think of a new little plant shooting up and Cloud was always shooting up! High places were a favorite. I’m sure the adopting family had their own reasons for the name. I do wonder how it came about though. Lol It’s quite a name! Maybe their last name is Sprout! ;) We’ll never know. Mystery.
Both the nicknames you have going are good ones. Beautiful and Baby. Loving names.

So how is everyone? I feel very much “out of the loop!”

I think we are overdue for a smile post.
The kitties here got a care package! It is for me too but they don’t want to admit it. Lol Someone very dear to us sent the box as a surprise. It was! Let’s get some thoughts from the cats.

The box is for Precious?

FE64CBD9-8498-408D-AF68-162065C8D9C4.jpeg

I claim it!

26C5F0CA-29DA-49CE-8AAD-F89B500DD3F9.jpeg

No! The preciousist is mine!

C9947EBD-0079-490E-AFB1-94C2AC80965E.jpeg

Wipes and hand sanitizer that is Strawberry? Okay. You can take that but the rest is mine.

66DA3A14-8282-46E5-B256-F3EC7CA6FD89.jpeg

A toy? Who gets that?

99020B46-D323-4D5E-B7BB-E71053F3C810.jpeg

It says “Cat Dancer!”
5990FC1E-12A4-41DE-BC30-783E8270FCB8.jpeg

The human that sent it must know us!

5CED511D-AC83-4D43-BFAB-103419411D9C.jpeg

Do you want it BJ?
22685C6D-9F38-49D5-881C-1BD6D9B6FA43.jpeg

I think it’s meant for me.

53922C57-454B-455B-998B-675CD31F8E23.jpeg

No! I need the dancing lessons. It’s meant for Whistle!

FCBA8F23-0C93-4DA8-B3AA-791B031EB8DF.jpeg

Soooo what else is on there?

441A40BD-B3BC-4657-9FB7-D0AE1AEA72E0.jpeg

Any hats for cats?

27651CB8-4AFA-4D49-98B8-8C39604B641E.jpeg
Look for a hat! No?!? Maybe I should look.

878B0904-AD97-4667-A769-1BEEDA3305BE.jpeg

No hat. Hmmm.

D1A072C2-CB66-4051-BE27-6CD61A4E9049.jpeg

I should keep looking anyway?

ADACC878-10E2-4EE2-9AA6-A8368812A3A2.jpeg

Well, well, well!

4F6627D5-15D8-4D07-8328-C30018709663.jpeg

Obviously meant for BJ!
A710ACD0-2660-4936-8163-EF1D00143076.jpeg

Hey! How about sharing BJ?!?

A44BF2B4-2D58-48DA-9008-C556187F5205.jpeg

What would you do if you found them Banjo?

DF78640C-8711-4C24-9240-B7AD4980D327.jpeg

I wonder if something else is in the box? Ooooo! I see toilet paper! I could make a new party hat!

6B494C96-2B38-475C-8CBD-0E4F905EA50F.jpeg

I bet BJ will share if I make him a hat too!

D92902CC-B020-46B8-A35F-8AF36E4EFBB6.jpeg

It’s a four pack. It’s hard to lift. Oh! Top cats! Look what I found!


30EA7BF6-4FD3-452C-872E-B2F86B862DFE.jpeg

I can lift this!

2E059776-763C-43B9-851C-96DE4804A148.jpeg

I can make BJ a hat and share his treats and then come back later tonight for this! Lol

BEECCFD1-535F-4845-AC0C-FAA2CE36D375.jpeg

Stay here little bag of treats. I’ll put you under the sofa later.

559E0C05-09DE-405E-9F7E-56DEF617315B.jpeg

I know I taught my daughter to share. Do something human!

A0F0A73C-C4D2-4190-A68F-D46CE7BAFD34.jpeg

Time for human intervention. Lol Treats for everyone!

3B065775-3F6C-49E5-9EE3-40A793DE4151.jpeg

I wonder if they found my bag?

93A23EB3-0EB8-4619-AEBF-D46FE826F401.jpeg

Magic box..... do you have more magic?
071C54BE-C7EF-495E-9EF7-C1E1EDBF00AE.jpeg

If this is a magic box, I would like a Kodiak prince but some toilet paper would be fun!
ED118170-66C8-47E6-B6B1-A29AF085950D.jpeg

Oh my! I moved the box to the bedroom to save the rest of the contents for another day and it must be magic! I opened it again and Mackie appeared!

4277DB95-3F3E-44A2-97FA-81984DAD1281.jpeg

The card that came inside the box says it all. It’s the purrfect card for us since we love catspeak!
D14AC78F-EABF-4F8A-8900-F133E0F09604.jpeg

I hope this finds everyone well. I smiled. Did you? Thanks go to a dear friend for the smiles tonight!

Oh, how exciting to get an unexpected box of surprises! And something for all of you.

Just keep that toilet tissue away from the clowder, or something might happen to it.

BTW, does anyone else remember when you could buy toilet tissue in different colours?

He even relaxed on his back to show his Timmy
LOL, yeah, I love that one!

OK, guys, I have some very sad news. Nieto disappeared two weeks ago. A few days after that, one of the neighbors went to the gas station very late at night. The roadway was clear. On the way back, she saw a small orange body in the road, but...it was too severe to recognize. She said it had to be a direct hit, because there was NO traffic out at all. I waited and waited, hoping, but...five days ago Scamper, who was also MIA, came limping up for breakfast. He had abrasions on both right feet, and his right ear was scabbed. I think that little Nieto was following him. Scamper was able to dodge, and just got sideswiped, but Nieto, with his bad leg, couldn't move fast enough. I am so mourning him. And I haven't seen Scamper again. I hope that he's just lying up, and coming to eat at odd hours. I keep food out all night now, just in case. I can't, just can't have lost them both to the same car! Prayers, vibes, good wishes for Scamper, please. I know that Nieto is safe now, and with his mama again.

Mamanyt1953 Mamanyt1953 I'm so sorry. I feel pain with you but I know you feel much more. Yes he's free.

Oh yes I laughed, Jcatbird Jcatbird ! I have a Cat Dancer and it's fun! And the pocket guide is Mooshoo to a "T"! Thanks for the fun post.

Here, Gracie had a tooth resorption going on and had to have a premolar removed. That was 8 days ago and she's mostly back to normal. Was pretty tired and laid low for a week. Good news at her yearly vet visit and shots was that her heart murmur is gone! She had a grade 3/6 likely from stress from being at the shelter.

I'm back to 4 kitties, my daughter has sold her condo and bought a townhouse so she is all set. Beans and Bleu (her cats) were fun to have here for a few weeks.

Speaking of care packages, I got those Waterless Levi jeans with my bday money! I love them, but you were right, they do look a bit beat up from the golf balls, bottle caps, stones, whatever they used to wash them without water. Also got a thermal waffle shirt! :thumbsup:

If this is a magic box, I would like a Kodiak prince
Hmmm. Is that how you get a prince? ;)

good wishes for Scamper, please.
You got it! ❤

That is something that I have never understood- people paying good money, sometimes even paying extra- for jeans that look like they have had the snot beat out of them. Mine all got that way from normal wear and tear. The only time I ever did anything to mine was when a bunch of us took our new, stiff dungarees, tied some line through a couple of belt loops, and dragged them for a couple of miles in the ship's wake. We used to call it the world's largest Maytag. Softened them right up, too. Two screws, each over 20 feet across, each powered by some 35,000 shaft horsepower- yeah, it did the job.

I picked the darkest wash they had, but they still look pretty faded. Hopefully they come out with a Rinse color. That's where they dunk the jeans back in the dye after washing. You have to be careful of the color running on other clothes though.

I opened it again and Mackie appeared!
Seems like the kitties enjoyed the box more than the contents. Typical. If Lady climbs in, you know what to do. Slap my address on there and proceed. :thumbsup:

rubysmama rubysmama You know this chowder well! Paper hats for everyone!!:party::woo: Banjo helped me to hide the toilet paper. Ohhhhhh. I wonder if that was a trick? Lol
I remember when toilet paper came in colors and in patterns. It was pretty but I guess, bad for the environment. I still see paper towels with some prints but nothing like you used to see.

Mamanyt1953 Mamanyt1953 Noooo.:bawling2:I am so very sorry.,Having know his whole story, I know how hard this is. My heart is with you and my prayers with Nieto. I know he had struggles and we worried about his future. He was meant to come to you that last time and learn about true love. He got the very best any of us can get. He was completely loved by you. He had the beautiful experience of pure kitty joy. No he will not struggle or feel pain in that leg. He is with his mom and the angel kitties. He can fly and no longer has trouble getting around. I feel like Scamper is on hiding. He must have been frightened by it all so just give him time. He is staying safe somewhere and will emerge again when he feels secure again. I am so very sorry.:grouphug2: He travels with the love from you and all here. As tabbytom tabbytom said..... hugs!

pearl99 pearl99 Sending get well wishes for Gracie! Ouch. She must feel better with the dental issues gone.
very glad you enjoyed the post. The cats had fun. Still are! Lol I guess the house feels a bit empty with two cats gone now. I bet they miss you! Maybe you can let another kitty in now?

maggiedemi maggiedemi I am so glad you got something nice with your birthday money! Even though the fabric has that distressed look, they may be a softer texture. I , especially, hope the waffle shirt keeps you warm and snuggly. I’d like to think the birthday resulted in a comfort that will last and keep you well and warm in the cold.

Soooo, if you got a box, should it contain a Lady or a Prince? I could send a Prints prince! Lol

rubysmama rubysmama The phone does need tweaking. I am also involved in some local cat issues. I have had three cat emergency calls and felt I must answer and help as I could. A cat named Pippa needs all the hope, good thoughts, love and prayers we can send along with the same for Scamper. I also need hope as I had three responses to my “Found cat” sign. None were for Prints but I am now searching the swamp for a missing kitten and two other cats. I may have seen one of the cats. I am back to putting up some cat shelter in case they are around. Hoping I can have a reunion of more. I going to put a new cover on the greenhouse for winter and setting up cat shelter there as I hope to find the missing kitties. I’m really busy!
That picture looks a lot like BJ! He also likes to chew phone cords! Lol

N NY cat man I know! Jeans fade fast enough without help! I like the dark blue Color of new jeans. The ones that amaze me are the really pricey jeans with slashes, rips and holes in them. Just how long can those last? I cracked up at the water softening trick. Ingenious!!

Furballsmom Furballsmom Agree!!lol

We are nearly at the end of quarantine time for Prints! Yay!!!!Freedom coming!! rubysmama rubysmama Here is your smile post!

I opened the door and immediately had a Prints on my leg! Happy to see me? Lol
