I was running errands until late this evening. I came home and fed the kitties first thing. I also handed out treats. While I was making sure they all got fed, I grabbed a snack to tide me over until I could make my supper. I had bought an Angel Food cake from the bakery. It’s one of the few sweets that I eat anymore and I always enjoy it.

The sky was beautiful this evening.

Oh yes, it's lovely!
Heartless or a destroyed heart? I always wonder about how someone comes to be like that. Sad that anyone could be so completely lost and without a spot of light in them.
Some just are heartless and a destroyed heart. They don't feel a thing about the bad they do.

Maybe they are checking out to see if there's a halo to confirm that it is Angel's Food................ :lol:

one of the priests at an old school I worked at was actually trained in exorcisms.
I would love to try it, but doubt she would let the priest in....or let the devil out... :devilish:

airport here, a train station, a port and a bus station. Land sea and air!
Hmmm...Subliminal message for me? We'll get you outta there...by land, sea, or air. ;)

Black hearts are out there but use the ripples anyway.
Yeah, it's weird how when I order something online, I always throw in a little something for her. I don't know why I do it. She never thanks me or treats me better. :dunno:

Party? Banjo is already planning what to order!
I like how this gal thinks! Does she love finding a bargain? That's the best part. I love shopping, but I'm cheap. 💰

Heartless or a destroyed heart? I always wonder about how someone comes to be like that.
Good point. Both my parents had horrific abuse by their parents, beat them with anything close by- boards with nails or even farming hooks 😢. It made my dad nicer, but made my mom mean. Funny how that works with different people.

I smacked as I fed the kitties.
That sounds kinda violent. 😲 Must be a typo, you're mostly a pacifist like me, I think. :thumbsup:

Some just are heartless and a destroyed heart. They don't feel a thing about the bad they do.
That's the thing with my mom. She can't feel anyone else's pain. Like a brick wall you just can't get through. 😟

tarasgirl06 tarasgirl06 --Where did you go? Too much talk about dogs? Come on back... I used to be terrified of dogs my entire life until I met Pomeranians. Funny how Pomeranians keep coming into my life! I'm afraid of my other neighbor's Pitbull, but when I yelled at him to get back and pointed to his yard, he understood me & got back. I thought he was gonna take my arm off!

M maggiedemi Thanks! No, for some reason I am not receiving email alerts for the past week or two, even though I asked for help and tried what was suggested. So I've missed out on a lot.
Jcatbird Jcatbird What? Big Mackie is not "lovin' it"??? Maybe a Big Mac(kie) is more his style? Or a Fillet O' Fish? How about a McChicken, if there is such a thing?
Haven't read back to the heartless person people are commenting on, because time is of the essence for me, always, and because I'm thinking I might get booted off if I read it and comment. I'm already censured for one such, about a person I consider heartless who's posted here at TCS. But in the "caring cat community" it's the CATS I care about. And those who care about them. Those that don't? Apparently I can't say. But as a comparative religious scholar, I would refer to the alleged pronouncement of Jesus that 'better you had never been born' than that you 'offend one of these little ones'. 'nuf said, I think. Those who know me, know what I think and feel about such people.

Some Laws that you didn't learn at school

01. LORENZ'S LAW OF MECHANICAL REPAIR

Once your hands become coated with grease, your nose will begin to itch.

02. ANTHONY'S LAW OF THE WORKSHOP

Any tool, when dropped, will roll to the least accessible corner.

03. KOVAC'S CONUNDRUM

When u dial a wrong number, u never get an engaged tone.

04. CANNON'S KARMIC LAW

If u tell the boss u were late for work because u had a flat tyre, the next morning u will have a flat tyre.

05 O'BRIEN'S VARIATION LAW

If u change queues, the one u have left will start to move faster than the one u are in now.

06. BELL'S THEOREM

When the body is immersed in water, the telephone rings.

07. RUBY'S PRINCIPLE OF CLOSE ENCOUNTERS

The probability of meeting someone u know increases when u are with someone u don't want to be seen with.

08. WILLOUGHBY'S LAW

When u try to prove to someone that a machine won't work, it will.

09. ZADRA'S LAW OF BIOMECHANICS

The severity of the itch is inversely proportional to the reach.

10. BREDA'S RULE

At any event, the people whose seats are farthest from the aisle arrive last.

11. OWEN'S LAW

As soon as u sit down to a cup of hot coffee, your boss will ask u to do something which will last until the coffee is cold...

Pl keenly observe such actions in your daily life and U may find it ⬆ true.

Don't forget Murphy's law- Anything that could possibly go wrong--WILL GO WRONG!:crash::doh2:

OK, guys, thank you for your good wishes. As of yesterday, my temp went to 101.2, and my Dr. concurred with my diagnosis, given my cough, that my aspiration pneumonia was not totally resolved when I was discharged. He called in a prescription for me, though. Saw him today, and he confirmed that I'm a pretty fair diagnostician of my own ailments. I may be hit and miss for several days while we get this under control here at home.

Some Laws that you didn't learn at school
Koslowski's Law of Window Cleaning.
The spot is on the other side. IF you take your cloth and cleaner outside, the spot will move by osmosis through the glass, remaining
ON THE OTHER SIDE!

I guess you know Murphy’s law. Anything that can go wrong will.
Mrs. Murphy was a woman. If Murphy had been a man, there is at least an 80% chance that law would have said, "If anything can go wrong, MAKE YOUR WIFE DO IT!" It is my considered opinion that a good many of the OTHER 20% of men are here on TCS.

Mamanyt1953 Mamanyt1953 Sending healing your way! :vibes::heartshape: Get well! When this is resolved, maybe all will be better at once! I have had pneumonia too and it just takes a little while to thoroughly shake it. We still have that candle lit though.

The spot on the glass!:flail:So true. Kodiak thinks it is hilarious when I chase the spots. She likes to point them out to me.

Murphy predicted my life. Lol

Jcatbird Jcatbird I haven't been on the site much lately. I have been reading some but not posting much. Trying now to catch up on your thread. So sorry to hear that sweet Thrasher had been missing for so long. So very relieved to know Thrasher is now home safe and with her family again. I know you must be so contented now and all the kitties as well. At last I read Smoky seems to be doing well so far. Sorry if I may have missed something. It is hard trying to catch up , so easy to miss some important information. How are all the other kitties? How is my sweet Wanda Heart? I really love her! I thought I read you got another Prints?? Also , a new addition you adopted to a neighbor. An orange kitty? I sure wish I lived closer. Maybe you could find me an orange kitty. I have a very soft spot for orange kitties. I still miss my precious Mittens who was an orange and white kitty.
Hey, I read your rounding up TCS members to get together and visit you.
Wouldn't that be great? A trip of a lifetime. If only dreams could become reality.
Let me know how you and all the kitties are doing.
Catch me up everyone!!

@Mammyt1953 So sorry to hear about your illness! Hope you are taking things easy and letting your body heal. You are very loved on this site by everyone. As other members have stated , most members on this site are very warm and caring and can become truly good friends. You are at the top of that list. You are always so caring to all the members , especially on the "crossing the bridge" forum. You show such compassion to all of us who are grieving over the loss of our beloved cat. You are missed when you don't post for even a day , that is how special you are to all of us. I have been a member for a long time now , but not too well known by many.
Just take things one day at a time. It takes a long while for our bodies to recover from an illness. I know all too well. Just rest with your sweet Hekitty. A cat can help us heal. Oh , I did get a card for you that I would love to send to you. I will try to PM you to see if I can send you the card.
Until then , like you always say, my heart is with yours.

tabbytom tabbytom I hadn’t thought about that! The kitties probably were looking for the halo on the Angel Food cake! I wonder if they saw one? Lol No wonder that cake tastes so good! I should eat more of that!

Maria Bayote Maria Bayote I love the look on his face too! He gets his kitten expression when he snitches something he really loves. Maybe that’s his angel face?

M maggiedemi If I do something nice for someone, I don’t really look for thanks. That’s a plus if it happens. I do nice things just for the pleasure of doing them so maybe that’s why you do things for her?

Land, sea or air, they all work! I suspect cats would all like to have a birds’ eye view. Lol

Your parents had it very rough. The fact that either came out with a tender disposition is amazing. Damage should never be done to our children. It is often passed through generations. Their parents may have experienced something similar. Hopefully it all stops with them.

Banjo would be a bargain shopper. She would want as many treats as she can get for my money. Ah. Her money! Lol

Smacked was a typo. Should have been snacked! Lol

tarasgirl06 tarasgirl06 We were talking about people in general who lack a heart. They do evil without a care in the world or any regrets. Some specific ones mentioned. I was just wondering what caused such a person to be so unfeeling,

We all know your heart lies with kitties and is focused on bringing them the lives they deserve. It’s very hard to hear when a cat is not getting the very best life possible. I think we all speak out at times. It’s hard not to speak up for those who cannot speak. We should not do otherwise or we become part of the problem. Those who don’t care about cats have come to the wrong place! We surround them with cat respect!

Big Mackie does like Big Macs. Lol He is a bit of a beefy fellow. McChicken or fish would not be turned down though. He has been known to have Big Mac attacks. I don’t often bring home takeouts but Mackie is familiar. I am more likely to buy a “Happy Meal.” I just like the name! Lol

strider rose strider rose You just can’t beat a kitten yawn for cute! It made me want to snuggle down with her for a nap!
Maybe a visit can happen in the future. For now, we can visit right here.

Whenallhellbreakslose Whenallhellbreakslose I know Murphy’s law too well! Lol

N NY cat man Precisely right! Always at the worst possible moment. Would destiny have it any other way? Lol
But….. maybe spiking a great moment would be even worse? Let’s get all the yucky over with at once and be done with it. :yess: On to better things! If possible….lol

Loving Mickey Loving Mickey I am so glad you are back! I know it is hard to catch up. Let’s see…. Thrasher is doing well. I am so very happy now that she is home and snuggling me every night. Smokey is holding on. She has lost weight but her lady bloodwork was amazingly good! We take each day as it comes and I treasure every moment. She has exceeded all expectations already. I am very grateful.
Wanda Heart is still adorable! She’s such a sweet girl and all grown up now. She and Prints have become good friends. I think that having a kitty close to her she has been a happy addition for her. Prints is hilarious and loves everything!
The newest addition (lives with my elderly neighbor but I go by each day and do a lot of the extra care like flea meds.) is named Pawpurr. After getting Prints, we had to have Prints and the Pawpurr after Mark Twain’s ,” The Prince and the Pauper.”
Wouldn’t a gathering of everyone be fun? The TCS extrafurganza! Lol

How about some photos to help with the update?

Coming next!

Pawpurr!

She has her favorite toys!!

Pawpurr is very people oriented now.
102FB0C9-DB0C-4E05-8644-7C1FFF1156B2.jpeg

BJ was the hero of the day! He became a search and rescue cat and located Thrasher.
D92A1B89-9741-481A-BC3A-682E2AB9C424.jpeg

This was the moment of contact when she was too scared to come out. If you missed the parts about BJ braving outside to find his love, it’s worth going back for.
C152859C-008F-4E8D-BF07-84D34E872F83.jpeg

Thrasher is very content being pampered inside again.
0CBF9C9A-897B-403E-9D0A-70E3283D766D.jpeg

I am very content doing the pampering too!
07C28D6F-2C28-434A-A118-6F7D22B9D22E.jpeg

Pawpurr is being pampered too.
C1C4651F-3E22-4B45-A645-E994385566CE.jpeg

She’s full of strong personality.

And adorable!!

Wanda Heart is growing up!
77249046-2164-4863-BB1E-E728066DE1B8.jpeg

She’s developed into a healthy girl.
D3F7A389-028F-40E0-98A5-62DD3B2029DD.jpeg

She still enjoys being kittenish though.
BF1F5681-8F29-47C9-A6F3-050EE43D6BFE.jpeg

Still silly!
2256FF48-5DE4-4613-90AA-D30F6742EBFD.jpeg

Prints is a good match for Wanda Heart,
64EA6FA5-E523-44D7-AC25-4D60846CB6E8.jpeg


They both love to love.

Spoker alert! Fresh shrimp!! I hate to cook these but, we’ll do anything to keep our kitties smiling!’
8F86E4F9-8041-472F-AE88-C4C26641CB50.jpeg

Smokey knows how to give a look that speaks volumes!! Give me love! Treats too! Lol Fresh shrimp just for me? Okay. If you want to!
