    What an absolutely uplifting story! I wish Lauren all the luck and pray she is successful in raising the money she needs! It is so uplifting to know there are people like her in the world, we need a lot more like her! She needs prayers too, to be successful, with right and determination on her side she can't fail!

    So I believe that I am going to make the drive and possibly bring home my new foster today. They called and I'm not working as it' like 15 out brrrr! I'm excited as he's a giant Manx kitty who does leak some poop but I think him and my boys will get along as he's playful. Big guy is locked in a cage bcz he is after an older kitty at the rescue (they do let him out when they can watch him or I come and play with him). He will finally have a place to run again.

    I just noticed she's joined the forums around the time she approached me and I'm happy to see that she's become an active member! :clapcat: She's @Lauren4883 and I'll send her a link to this post too!
    (On another positive note - we'll be switching email notifications for the @ mentions back on for all members real soon! This time there will be an option to switch the feature on and off too, so every member can choose whether or not they want to get them).

    It's 46°F/8°C and sunny, so Mowgli is out on the balcony enjoying the relatively mild weather. He's missed it.

    Winnie has decided to stop puking! Yay! I no longer have to clean up after her and she shouldn't be in any pain! Also I managed to find her favorite ball. I'm pretty sure she just added 20 points to the "how much I love my owner" chart.:p

    My flowering gum is covered in pink flowers and rainbow lorikeets.. it's one of the most wonderful sights. The birds eat themselves silly and then come down and fight over who gets the birdbath first. It's deafening and very joyful.

    @mani You have such amazing birds Down Under. I can't imagine having such colorful ones in our backyard, though I do get a kick out of the magpies, ravens, and crows. They play with everything.

    One of the kakarikis (red-crowned parakeets) at the shelter is still trying to bark, but he isn't as convincing as the parakeet that meowed and the parrot that imitated a smoke alarm. :lol:

    That is hilarious!!! Did everyone go into fire-drill mode when the parrot started up?

    We used to have a budgie that made the sound of coins being counted because he sat on the desk where the money was totalled up at the end of the day. He would also say 'all done'. :)

    I did. The first time she did it was at 7 a.m. on a Sunday, when I was alone at the shelter. I went through every room twice. I didn't catch on till the third time she did it - while I had my back turned to her, but was in sight. Smart bird!

    We used to have neighbors whose cockatoo screamed, "Help! Police!". They had to put a sign beside their doorbell explaining that it was a bird screaming, not a woman.

    Oh my goodness! That kitten is so cute! I’m slightly bias toward orange cats, because my own sweet furbaby is orange. :caticon:

    Thank you for giving him a loving home!

    Thanks so much, @donnae for your concern. Thankfully, my gardeners arrived this morning, late, and were able to fix the posts and guy-wires to my little tree once again. I was up several times in the night praying it would make it, as the high winds returned late in the night.
    We are safe here, and so thankful for that. I am praying for those in the zones, and for the amazing firefighters and first responders who risk their lives to keep strangers safe and lives as unaffected as possible.
    And for me, there is nothing more comforting and reassuring than the soft warmth of purring cats beside me at night.

    Almost a year since I joined this thread, and over 1.5 years since I adopted Simon. I found that this site is the most resourceful and helpful. I always get great responses, and feel it is a great community for cat owners and lovers alike to get valuable, credible information from knowledgeable, caring people all around the world. Very glad I found you guys! Save the kitties! MEOW :D

    Ah, @segelkatt -- that is so near my former home in the Mojave! Wrightwood and the 2 adjoining communities are called the Tri-Communities by those of us who live, or lived, "up the hill". We used to see the snow-blowers going late at night on the slopes up there, lit up like a holiday house, behind our land.
    Those were the best days!

    They look and sound wonderful, @mani.

    I spent the morning at work fixing a fancy inkjet printer. It was worth the time I spent on it. All cleaned out and working like new. Now the four hundred dollars in ink cartridges I have won't go to waste.

    Some more work photos, most of the non-cat photos I post are work photos. They get to go to some really interesting places and I get stuck in the office. At least I don't have to work outside in the winter time :)

    IMG_8757.JPG We got kitty window perch round 2 last night, since the suction cups decided to quit working on the other one. This one screws into the sill, so hopefully it will be more sturdy. Mog sure loves to watch what's going on in the side garden and sun himself.

    My new cat wanted some alone time to get used to the new house. A+ for effort though Sumi.
