Yes, dustydiamond1 dustydiamond1 after the MOANDAZE come the Tongue-Out Tuesdays, because we're still not at "Mike Mike MIKE. What DAY is it!?!" time. 🐪🐫 Those beautiful snaps help, though. They definitely do.
Jcatbird Jcatbird Well, BJ, IDK about kissing all the guys, but I do know you, your mom and all of us are VERY grateful to have Thrasher in the safety, comfort and love of Chez Catbird once again!

dustydiamond1 dustydiamond1 It’s good to be back among the cats snd cat people!! Home! I am taking it as easy as I can. I had to go for supplies today and am tired. NO cat food anywhere though! I was trying to be well stocked for my next procedure but I’ll go back afterwards. We have enough to get through. Thank goodness!! I do have a little bit being shipped in though.

tabbytom tabbytom I’ll behave. Lol It’s hard but Banjo and the others are watching. It’s difficult to get anything over on them! :lol:

dustydiamond1 dustydiamond1 Cat tongues are the greatest! Gypsy has a lovely little pink tongue. There is just some endearing about kitty tongues.

Whistle wants to know if snap dragons really snap.:flail:

tarasgirl06 tarasgirl06 Well, you know BJ, he just loves everyone. Besides, kissing all the kitties is a bit different from kissing all the hoomans. Lol Even BJ wouldn’t kiss ALL the hoomans.
Each day I look at Thrasher and I am grateful.

Tell Whistle that usually if you gently squeeze the sides of their jaws together the mouth will open but these either aren't mature enough yet or are a variety that doesn't yawn.

Breathtakingly lovely luna moth, Jcatbird Jcatbird ! I saw one when I was a small butterfly and moth geek and it was something I'll always remember. They are just amazingly lovely! Thanks for sharing this one with us.
It's very concerning about the cat food situation there. I've been telling others about it. The container ship debacles are being played up in the press now -- it's always something and I wish people would "straighten up and fly right!" Thanks god for the .com suppliers. I tend to keep a lot of stock on hand and was just honing it down for future shipments but maybe that's something to rethink.
As for bathing, cleanliness is next to catliness. We all know this!

BTW, Shadow, who is Topper's GF (although he's neutered) is also friendly with several of the other ferals (she IS feral), so it isn't as if she'd be totally cut adrift if we could find Topper a home.
I saw Topper worked up as a profile on socials yesterday -- either twitter or fb, I don't remember which. So someone out there is really going to bat for him! May he find that loving permanent home he so deserves!

dustydiamond1 dustydiamond1 That Luna moth is a male. He doesn’t eat at this stage of life, it’s all about love! They mostly stay airborne to look for love so a wing tear is common. He’ll only last about a week at this stage but he , hopefully, will produce many more for the next cycle. I’ve seen quite a few over the years and I am always struck by their size and beauty. I’m glad he found rest in safety by my door so I could see him.
The butterfly is beautiful! Stopped to visit you personally! You are a flower among butterflies!!

In the video I could hear a wren fussing. I assume she saw Gypsy. Lol

Whistle is fascinated about squeezing a dragon. Lol As long as big ears don’t pop up, he’ll enjoy it. Unless it looks like it wants to eat him. :lol:
Cool flower fact!

Maybe Gypsy didn’t look up because that’s not a Gypsy moth! :lol:

Lari Lari That’s neat that you got to see your first Luna here. They are really big moths. A first for you and baby J to share!!:bunnydance:

tarasgirl06 tarasgirl06 Yes, stay stocked for now. That’s why I posted that. Just when I was seeing more in the stores, inventory dropped again. My trucker friend ( remember I posted pictures of the warehouses a while back when I rode with him ?) tells me that shipping containers for Walmart are sitting in huge quarantines. Barely room to store them. The warehouses are advertising for employees at high rates of pay right now. It seems that finding workers is slowing the supply lines along with people to stick the stores snd sell the products. I went to another large store and many shelves were empty. Everything for cat food to furniture. Hopefully this will pass as it did last time. I was limited by how much cat litter I could order from .com supplier. I’ll have to do more frequent orders and hope to find what we need before our supply gets low. I ended up buying individual cans instead of cases. Lol Lots of cans!! I only got a weeks worth to add to what we have on the Shreds though. I was happy to find it though. Rough week? I think we all need those paw verbs! Whiskers today too. Maybe all of those will help.
Topper on a profile? That is encouraging!

tabbytom tabbytom How do you find so many cool things? I loved the pawverb!
“Nap while napping is good.” Yes! Nap when the cats nap too! Lol

Okay everyone! We have a real Whodoneit mystery here. See if you can figure it out before the end.
While I was recovering, strider rose strider rose sent us a gift to help me get well and to occupy the kitties while I did that. I put the box up unopened and planned to bring it out when the kitties seemed bored. However……

Hey! Where did everyone get treats?
