I believe StefanZ who is an Advisor on the Team is from Sweden.I don’t know if we have any Swedish members.
I can't possibly imagine who she got that remarkable trait from?She had a magnet inside her and it drew all creatures, great and small, two legged, four legged, furred and feathered. Really something special to watch.
Of course I'm smiling. Papa's here with me!!!! And my cats. A true miracle. I never thought I'd see him again.So good to see your smiles here again!
I agree with Banjo.She has everyone on a strict allowance.
Banjo knows all about deposits. The best kind that is. She promised to share.or a deposit?
Awww man, I'd love to see a video of that!AJ and Cassidy did their best to march into the house tonight at First Feeding! Hekitty was NOT amused!
I 2nd that emotion.I can't possibly imagine who she got that remarkable trait from?
I have a sneaking suspicion that you may be right about that! The times that Topper has made it into the house, she's been...interested.
Thank you for sharing that particular video from Home Alone 2. Our second youngest loved the first and second movie. The sentiment between Kevin and the lady he shared his turtle doves with was priceless. And the lady who lovingly fed the pigeons shared what little she had with them, a truly selfless deed without any form of recognition. What could be better than thinking of others before yourself especially when the others have fur or feathers.Kind of reminds me of the way birds loved the lady in Home Alone, only no one had a pocket full of seeds. Lol
Uh oh. Sounds like Hekitty has a boyfriend!The times that Topper has made it into the house, she's been...interested.
You can! Fried green tomatoes. I've always wanted to try those.Tomato, tomahto? No frying those either!
Hmmm. Somehow I sense another one of your famous life metaphors in there for me?It’s not like she could call them to her or go to them. They just came to her. That just shows that most creatures can find the ones who love them and they give as much or more than they get.
Well it wasn't quite the exact path I expected or wanted to take! But I guess all is well that ends well.The “path” we always hoped for is before you right now! There is it! You waited and held on and now a new journey has begun.
No wonder you have dents, you let all humans & animals in need stand on your shoulders.I had dents in my shoulder but I loved having her as my little companion.
Demi tried to do that yesterday! Dad told me that he tried to drag the bag of dry cat food away while I was sleeping.around here, if I don’t act as waitress, the cats will serve themselves.
I tried making these a couple of times over the past several years, to attempt to use up the ones at the end of the season that weren't going to have enough time to ripen on the plant before a big freeze. I pretty much decided it's quite a bit less about the sliced tomato as much as it is about the coating and the dipping sauce.Fried green tomatoes. I've always wanted to try those
Hello Maria. I hope you enjoy your weekend. Thank you for still care for the Momma cat and the kittens. That is a darn shame If those dog owners turn those dogs loose. It breaks my heart that people think that that is an actual solution instead of trying to properly deal with their dogs. Some dog breeds have a high prey drive. Also, a starved dog will resort to hunting to survive. Are there any rescuers or animal advocate groups who work to get the dogs off the streets and maybe also helpful getting the kittens off the streets? It would be so great if there were, but I know there is still countries that don't have this, but then again there are kind individuals who opened the heart and homes to animals. I am always amazed and inspired by the man who ran an cat sanctuary in the war-torn city of Aleppo in Syria. What a brave and dedicated man! Back to the dogs, I heard about cat caretakers in the country who ended up feeding the Coyotes, so they would not prey on the cats. It did work, but they had now more mouths to feed. You may not be able to do that I am really not for the solution of calling Animal Control (if you have that over there) that will most likely destroy the dogs. Are there farms nearby that you can inquire if they need any dogs? Especially if they seem like good work or guard dogs. I would just keep looking around for people who may need dogs that are good people who will take care of them, should the dogs end up thrown outside. I am just throwing a few ideas out there. If I knew these dog owners and they were people who were frustrated with their dogs' behavior. I would forward some Casear Milan's "The Dog Whisperer" videos. Ceaser is practical a miracle worker. You could see some of his videos on You Tube.How is everyone? It is weekend in my part of the world and tomorrow I'd get to cuddle my cats longer. I hope the neighbor's kids' would give me some rest time.
I am still feeding the momma cat and her kittens. They are still as elusive as on Day 1. But I am glad they are always around for me to bring them food at least twice a day.
I heard that some neighbors are complaining about the dogs in some of the flats. I worry that these dogs will just be thrown out by the owners. There are about 5 or 6 flats that have dogs (I am the only one with cats). Seriously, the dogs' never bother me. Of course they bark once in a while. But can I also complain about the unruly and noisy kids and ask them to move out also? I hope the dog owners do not abandon their pets. I see a lot of abandoned dogs here because most of the apartment compounds are not dog friendly. More dogs are being abandoned than cats.
Jcatbird , sending my love to you and the rest here at TCS.
