Well, Splish is now a housecat, as is the itty bitty kitty that showed up after I got home from the hospital! And Itty Bitty, whose name is now Sweet Thang, has KMR added to his diet. The new owners came to me for assistance, since he is SO tiny! Not sure how Sweet Thang will do for a full-grown male cat, but that's their choice! Still waiting and hoping for Scamper, but AJ has turned back up, as has Callie. Shadow still comes with Topper, and there are a couple of new cats I haven't named yet.

This is fantastic news!!! More room to help the kitties!!! :yess: Todd must be over the moon about this. Sorry that you stepped on Gypsy's back leg. That sucks, but I am sure Gypsy will forgive you. :lovecat:TG she is not injured, just give her an extra treat or two, don't beat yourself up over this accident. These things happen.

Mamanyt1953 Mamanyt1953 I am so happy to hear you are getting back to your formal feeding schedule with the cats. I glad to hear you are getting better everyday. Also, you have some new kitties to take care of. More kitties to :rbheart::catlove:. Yay!!!

tarasgirl06 tarasgirl06 I know the kitties must be enjoying the cool air as much as the Hoomans!
Definitely great news about Vulcan pitching in to help those kitties. That will make a huge difference for Katdadde. Thank goodness dustydiamond1 dustydiamond1 brought him here do adoptions could be another focus for them.

rubysmama rubysmama I know! Whistle didn’t notice the bunny at first but when he did..... his expression! Lol Poor Whistle. Big ears bring big eyes!
I removed the bunny but chances are, Lady will carry him back at some point. Maybe I can switch the bunny for her chick.

Mamanyt1953 Mamanyt1953 That is wonderful that Splish and Sweet Thang have homes! Yay!!!!! New kitties? Well, there are two spaces that opened up with those adoptions. The cat grapevine continues. I am so glad you are able to be back there for them. Don’t push too quickly though! Kitten steps.:hugs:

dustydiamond1 dustydiamond1 Aww! Poor Gypsy got the thermometer! Hmmmm. Was she trying to guilt you by putting her paw under your foot? Sounds like a Tactic to get some extra love after an a day indignity. Treats hooman! It was a difficult day for me and I need pets and treats! Very glad her paw and bottom are okay. You too!

Whenallhellbreakslose Whenallhellbreakslose Yep! Accidents do happen! Kitties tend to rub against legs and run ahead of us and I often have to shuffle my feet until kitties move. Breakfast time can bring a Clowder in my path!
It is so great to hear that Mamanyt1953 Mamanyt1953 is getting back to the schedule she loves. I know the kitties are happy about it.

Let me look at it.

It feels pretty good!

It doesn’t have a roof though.

Oh. You have to put the roof on? Lololol

I’ll get it put together Banjo.

Thank you hooman. I knew I could count on you. Even if it took weeks to get it.

No criticism though. Lol

Now?

If need be, I can probably do it myself!

No Banjo. Here, you can keep track of the ties that came off of it until I throw them out.

I’ve got this one!!

Here’s the other.

These make nice toys!

I like it! The light makes a nice pattern through it.

Wait, where is the door?

And the bottom?

Is this what you ordered?

Get out Banjo. I haven’t finished yet!
89730DF8-605F-4EA6-9ECF-7E2B0F229454.jpeg

Okay. Going to lay here and be patient. What do you think Whistle?

I think I should get one too!

:lol:
Heh! Got that! Something told me that Whistle would want whatever Banjo gets. The carriers happened to be on sale so......gotcha Whistle! However, I also know that when you two travel, you’ll want to be together! Vet visit soon so we’ll just see if you want to share the ride or be independent.:lol:

I like the comparison pic of Banjo coming out of the small carrier with the large carrier bottom.

I splurged on the sleepypod a few years back. Lelia gets it if we had to take both cats somewhere, like when we moved, but Sparkle got to use it when she went to the vet last fall. Spoiled girls.

True dat, tabbytom tabbytom !
Bravo Banjo! Enjoy your new "throne"!
Yes, most of us know that Vulcan is a true friend of cats (referring to the late, lamented Leonard Nimoy a/k/a Spock, half-Vulcan and all heart for cats!)
And yes, Suha and Elvis are MORE appreciative, if anything, than we are of the cool air! Those fur coats are insulating, but when it gets up close to 100F, hot is HOT.
The Lady of the Islands, yes? Sounds like a fascinating story. Are orchids involved? Or perhaps CATS?;)

I feed some black cats. I have fed in the early morning hours when there is next to no light in the winter and accidentally bonked my backyard black kitty in the head trying to put down his food. It is okay-- because he instantly forgave me and ate his food like a good boy. He didn't even hiss at the clumsy, vision -challenged human putting down his food in the dark. :lol:

So beautiful! Thanks for sharing those with us!
I take so many photos thinking how great they will be to post here once we get home (I can't see my screen outside and never know what I've taken a photo of). But then I get side tracked and the next thing I know it's the next day and we are on our way again. She is getting very spoiled since we're spending around 2 hours a day outside.:lol:

Lari Lari Banjo has really grown up! Her old carrier is a nice place to feel like she is wearing a turtle shell but not much room for stretching her legs. Lol The new one lols huge beside the old one.
Sleepypod? I’ll have to look that up. I haven’t seen one! It sounds like Banjo would want one though. Lol

@tabbytom:flail:So very true! I have probably searched for a black cat in a room where they weren’t! I have also found them and yet, not found them. Or..... not known I had found them. Bonjour has a lot of vanishing talent. Somewhere I have a photo from when I was searching for him. I looked into a box all black inside and was just moving on to look elsewhere when two gold eyes appeared. I’ll post it if a can find it. I wonder if he was really there when I first looked? :headscratch: Lol

tarasgirl06 tarasgirl06 Banjo is so funny. More about her shortly.
Vulcan! Ah the dear Mr. Spock! Beloved cat person. Leonard Nemoy was a favorite with me and his character , Spock , too. No other could match his portrayal.
Air Conditioning must be wonderful to kitties. I keep mine running more for them than for myself. I can’t imagine being a southern feline. Especially cats like Bonjour! I’m sure that Elvis and Suha relish the cool air.
Lady of the Islands? Lol Actually, that could apply to cats and orchids. The first story might be a little hard to dig up now but there are others that could apply. In fact, some ginger kittens saved the lady of the orchids who came from the islands. What goes around, comes around. ;) If you find the original story, you are quite the detective!

dustydiamond1 dustydiamond1 The flowers are lush and lovely! Bonus for everyone there!
Spoiled? Nah. Living with lots of love.
BTW I can’t see my screen in the sun either. I never know how the photos really look until I get inside. Sometimes I get good ones and others.... not so much. Lol

Whenallhellbreakslose Whenallhellbreakslose Bonked a black cat? Oops! Purry has a habit of running in front of me in the dark of the house. I don’t know why he chooses that time but he loves to do it. I have bumped into him in the dark hallway before. Nothing hard but I always try to be careful because I fear stepping on a paw. It’s like he is playing ,” dodge the hooman!” As long as he steps on me, we’re good! Lol And he does! Surely I stand out a bit in the dark?!?!? :dunno::dancingblackcat: Maybe he just wants to dance on my feet? :lol:

I came in and Banjo was not inside her new carrier! Hmmm.

What ‘cha doing Banjo?

I was just waiting for my hooman!

Awwww. You want to snuggle after getting your new carrier?

Ahhh, of course hooman!

Now.... where was that.....

Make sure she isn’t looking. I just have to do what this cat does. I’m going to add to my treasure like this cat. Don’t tell the hooman!

Pirate treasure for my treasure box. This will go good in the new carrier. Matches my eyes too! They should make one with a cat on it.
