Sunday morning...

Meh, would've slept it in if weren't for Lestat, aka Supermodel Boodaboo, bothering me for food. Couldn't go back to sleep after that.

His preferred method is to lay above my head and knead or chew on my hair. Many times I'll wake up with my head completely pushed off the pillow and him curled up and contentedly purring above me. I'll usually push him off and go back to sleep.

If that doesn't work, he'll locate some paper (usually an important piece of mail) or plastic and chew on that, which makes a horrible rattling sound that is very hard to ignore. I'll stop that by dipping my fingers in the water glass and flinging it at him. That will send him running.

He'll loaf on my chest and stare at me. You ever tried sleeping through a cat staring at you?

He'll also lay right by head and purr. Which would lull me to sleep if it weren't accompanied by loud meowing in my ear.

His newest trick is to go under the bed and rattle a plastic bag RIGHT UNDERNEATH ME. I sleep next to the wall, so he knows I can't reach him there. Little bastard.

So, how does your cat wake you up?

Lestat on my chest...

"consumer reports" type question...
anyone have any experience with those automatic fountains for cats? i've been toying with the idea of getting one for my boys, but never quite did any research past what a friend had and liked (the petmate fountain).

that one is on sale on amazon this week, and i could snag it up... if i decided it would be a good idea.

so... anyone? pros, cons, likes or dislikes?

The FURminator [purple for cats]

FURminator is a especially designed pet deShedding tool. The secret to the FURminator treatment is a patent-pending tool developed to stop the shedding where it begins in the undercoat of your pet.

The revolutionary grooming device utilizes a unique 4-inch stainless-steel edge that grabs loose undercoat hair and quickly and easily removes it, without damaging the topcoat. It actually brings out the pet's natural oils, leaving a shiny and healthy topcoat. The pet will enjoy the feeling the de-shedding tool provides, and caretakers will appreciate the results. Used by veterinarians and recommended by doctors for people who have allergies, the tool is proven to decrease shedding by 60 to 80 percent for about four to six weeks.

Have any of you used this? Opinions?

Home needed.
Hi! I'm looking for a home for a very sweet little girl who came up to my porch in January and chose to have babies there. I looked for her owners (She was too people-friendly to have never been around humans), and couldn't find them. Once the babies were weaned (She had six, and I found another-same color-same age, in the local grocery store parking lot), a vet in my area took all seven and had them spayed/neutered and found them all good homes. I have had her spayed, and paid for her rabies shot. Her surgery, rabies shot and pain medication only cost me $40 (because of my finacial strains, the local humane society paid for the rest. I felt guilty asking, but couldn't afford it any other way.), but because I have been unemployeed and taking care of my grandmother (Who had alzheimers and dementia until her death a couple of weeks ago) the $40 was actually a hit to my budget as well as the cat food/litter/etc. I am asking $15-$20 for her since I was told it's a bad idea to post free pets because they rarely go to good homes. I assume she's about 8-9 months old. She's litter trained too. Long fur tuxedo sweetheart.

I can't keep her. I cannot afford to. I hate people who gather up animals that they cannot afford to keep (I.E. vet bills, etc.), and am trying my best to find her a good home.

I live about 45 minutes from Atlanta (towards Alabama) on I-20, and would be willing to meet someone anywhere within an hour to an hour and a half driving distance, as long as she's happy.

Here's some pictures of the furry little thing.Collapse )

From the couch (of my therapist cat...)

Fuzzy Lov'n

'...Ok Drew let me get this straight-- the wife is outta' town on business and left you to look after the, ahh, 'farm'? --Chickens, and such?
(What was she thinking?) Oh and the dog? The one that has the 'growth' that she's always gnawing at on her rib cage. Hmmmm-- So when you picked the eggs there was an incident with the one hen you said..."Brody", ahh, no--"Broody"? Ok so is that a name or is that the mood?

Moving on-- you got pecked you say? So that called for leveraging the hen off her perch to grab the eggs that she still fought for--ok, right.
Got notes on your cat "Buster"--right--, you say he gored you in the right buttock after an unfortunate leashing incident the next day did he?
But he, and that other one--(Scamper is it?)-- don't take well to that type of 'outside thrill'. Inside is just NOT working out huh? Oh I see, hmm.

Ok, and what is that term again--? "hackle-puff"-- that happens when the dog goes nose-to-nose to say 'hello'. Was there much blood?
No, no, I'm sorry -- I meant to your buttock from the unfortunate leashing incident. Ok but, the dog eats only cat food-- well, it is tasty y'know?
You've got time yet, my next appointment is with a "Mr opposum", He seems to believe that he lives with you on your back deck and is in some strange relationship with a male racoon who is also under the same mistaken assumption. No--it's quite normal. Get that a lot I do.
We cat-therapist call it "stupid-human syndrome". It's all about the 'big eye response.' The storybook character "Puss" from the animated feature by Dreamworks studios exploited that via their animated toon, that was voiced by a Mr. Banderas. Yes, humans fall for it every time.

No Drew, we cats don't respond to human words although we do understand them. We speak every human language in fact. Really!
We're brilliant we won't come to any owner in any human language ever! We feel that would 'cause a relationship breakdown if the ahem,
''owner'' thought that we actually cared enough to respond. Food and tummy rubbing are essential and since the dawn of your species we've had to ensure a compliant human that would do our bidding without fail. Respondig to you only creates problems eventually 'causes a breakdown that leads to something like the relationship you tend to have with, lesser mammals, like dogs for example.

Don't take it personal that your little buddy punctured your rump a few times, it comes with the territory until you're better trained. Consider this for a second-- What if we had YOU FIXED? Yeah, how about that? So remember that when you try to put any further demands on him.
Yep, it was a good thing your wallet caught the brunt of that! (chuckles) Treat them like the wife does when she's away. Fix them coffee in the morning, feed them steak and eggs, hire a massage therapist to rub them, and let them eat all the birds and mice they can get. They surely need the work out! That one cute one -- yes, ''Sassy''-- she's a four-footed dumpling with fur! Someone had to say it.

And try to limit your stress by using that deep breathing technique we spoke of last time. It won't do for me to give you a perscription for anything until you get more sleep and stop drinking the coffee. Coupled with your anxiety about being smothered by a cat in your sleep, and your insomnia, it would only add to your problems. After all, didn't you tell me you actually rescued one of them? Oh, two of them is it?
Now why would you do that if you....Oh......yes, the wife, of course. Oh one more thing before this session is finished. When we do that thing that you refer to as 'making buscuits'....well, we have to use our claws or it's just not quite the same. Yes, especially when you're almost asleep and yes, right on the side of your thigh or neck. The purring is to lull you into a sense of complacency just before we suck out your life force and add it to our own. Nothing to worry about though. And the drooling thing---that's the equivilent of a human having a cigarette after the fact. Just don't stare or attempt to move your hand until they have fallen asleep or you will get cut. Oh my, look at the time. You will excuse me, I've got to take a short break, tear up some toilet paper in the bathroom, vomit on the pillow, then bite a small human child on the nose before Mr. opposum's appointment! Thank you and see the receptionist on your way out. And this is not covered by insurance since it's considered to be 'elective' and 'unnecessary'. You ARE a great 'pet-tolerater', we..., I mean they, are just NOT that into you. Bu'bye.

Can't sleep, cats will eat me!

Must act like this is NOT a 'cry for help' or the cat has promised to kill me if I didn't put the 'F'n lotion in the basket

(please.....call the police!)--

No, I mean for real...(sanity slipping away.)

(NOTE...the above is in fun.)

I was recently invited to speak at a Symposium accompanying the Gothic: Dark Glamour exhibition at FIT in New York. An account of our trip to New York is contained within this 166 paged monster of an issue, mainly concentrating on the Museum exhibition itself. We were allowed in to take photographs of the outfits and items so I think you'll enjoy those as there's 74 pages of pictures on that alone, most of them full page, plus I have included all the visuals used during my talk and interview with Jon and Jonny from Specimen, which includes plenty of images never before seen in public and an account of all the talks at the two day Symposium. There is also a pivotal cat moment.
