Cats. Feline funnies and other stuff.

You know I do think so much of this site should just be shovelled.

But this place reassures me.

So, it turns out there's a filter that makes your cat look like a tiger


(Note - probably invented by cats, which means at least some have evolved opposable thumbs, so we are all in trouble)

I think it's more a case of being out of the wind in a nice, warm enclosure.

Our three feline owners had a visit to the vets today for their top up jabs .
Getting them in the carriers was not as traumatic as it could have been and they were not too bad in the car . Only a 15 minute journey and just a few plaintive meows . On way back not a sound until we were pulling up outside the house and then just the one meow . Seemed to take it a lot better than expected .
 
Out for a walk today with the Boss and while walking along a narrow path I suddenly felt that we were not quite alone, it was an overcast cold day and nobody at least no other bipeds around. I turned round and saw these two, appeared from nowhere. Notice the eyes, as already stated it was overcast and dull, alien cats perchance?

Cat no 1 just sitting there, then cat 2 appears walking slowly towards me, as cat 2 reaches me both turn round and studiously ignore me, then as cat 2 goes past me it disappears into the wormhole whence it came. Notice the apparent stretching of the body, this was predicted by the German physicist Schwarzschild over 100 years ago while working on Einsteins theories. The massive gravitational tidal forces cause a stretching which apparently does not adversely affect cats. It's the glowing eyes that get me, never seen anything like it before except at night.

That's a cat who is really well looked after by his slaves, and showing quite a lot of trust. They get a Gold Star from me.

Two weeks on and we are still all missing Jasper. Before he became ill he would often come on to my lap or sit next to me in the morning, and he was so soft that he was happy to be picked up and pulled around. I think he enjoyed it and it was great stress for me.

Coco is still acting in slightly odd ways, such as looking around a lot and lying on the front doormat. I worry about whether or not she is eating enough. She does eat, but she will eat the jelly in a plate of cat food but only some of the meat. She is not eating biscuits which she used to love. I am going to try different cat food and different biscuits.

Maybe get her teeth checked? First sign Jeeves isn't 100% with his teeth is only eating part of the meat in his food and not being too keen on biscuits or treats.

Was just about to say more or less the same about teeth .

When I have to put down one of my cats ill try to let the other one see the body.

I hate to say but what I see there is an animal acting like an animal and testing out a possible food source.
Bit of a struggle going on between "Yum yum" and old scents & recognitions.
New (still) born cubs are devoured by say...the mother tiger immediately for protein, and we know devoted even the most devoted dogs will eventually get stuck into their deceased owners indoors if starved long enough.
To a feline or canine...protein is protein. Not nice...but they are just hardwired to survive and make the most of what is in front.

An interesting and thought-provoking contribution . . . but, is it in response to anything in particular ?! ;) .

We had Ginge put down around 3 weeks ago, one of our other cats has now taken to sleeping in his basket and did so from when he first "disappeared", they used to stroll around the flat together and sleep on the bed in close proximity, so she obviously misses him.
 
I feel the Disagree love today......it's such a comfort.:).
Next time anyone is at the vet....ask them.
A niece in the Midlands is one of 18 years...small animal specialist.
Emailed her this morning...she's says both are possible....confused sort of grief given the limited self awareness, or hardwired (cough) disposal machines...depends on a particular animal's "mindset"/ hunger driven instincts.
