Hey guys, Yak sent these photos of the newest feline family member. As you can see, the little guy is not Purple at all!

From Yak:
Here's little Oreo. Poor little guy (runt of the litter) was at
death's door (roundworms, malnutrition & fleas) when we got him, but
he's roaring back now.





Looks like he's going to be a little stinker! Wink

A cutie for sure!

I'm not necessarily a cat person but....we added a kitten to our menagerie ourselves. Two weeks ago, I had our green cheek conure with me outside. I sat him on our fence, as I've done a thousand times to do some weeding. I stepped under our patio cover and a large hawk swooped down and grabbed him off the fence. The hawk flew away with Stevie in one claw. I thought he was a goner but we decided to look for him anyway. We were amazed to find him unscathed a few streets over. Apparently, he bit the hawk and it dropped him. That night, at a local restaurant, this little fellow came out of the woods mewing and wanting to be held and fed. We were feeling that we owed some pet karma so we took him home.

Now he rules the roost, meet "Smokey"....

NICE ! cheers cheers cheers

The little grey one in the avatar picture's names (s)Mokie too.

Started out as "Smokey" (from her grey smoke color) but got
skid-talk streamlined.

Cats are creatures that operate in an extra dimension.

Ask PeeBee. He'll tell you.

Great job, Yak and Riff Raff. Congrats on the rescues.

It's a shame that people often dump off kittens, instead of being responsible. We find them here in town on occasion. Of course we can't take in every stray we find, but my daughter would like to. Laughing

We used to get stuck catsitting from time to time from friends and relatives relocating. These cats bring all their bad habits with them and the normal things they're allowed to do in their home doesn't cut it here.

Cats suck, their shit stinks to high heaven, they shed all over the place, sharpen their claws on the furniture, get up on the counter and stove and lick everything, and you can't go into the kitchen without them trying to trip you begging for scraps.

The kitchen window screens get shredded from clawing at flies and bugs on the outside, and one lovely cute cuddly ball of fur found a spot under the couch equally appealing to use as a toilet as the litter box,,,we found out later after she left.

Several of the dirtiest most destructive kitties mysteriously disappeared, must have sneaked out and wandered away. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
I can't tell you how many cats get dropped off or thrown out the windows of cars around here. I find them in my garage up in the insulation crapping everywhere waiting for an opportunity to spread whatever disease they have. Ever had your air compressor quit working because a cat got squished in the drive belts? I had a radiator on my truck ruined when I started it because some scraggly cat found a warm spot under the hood.

No more catsitting, and no more cats in the house. They had a purpose in the barn but I don't live in one.

Enjoy your cats, I'm happy for you.

You're making me start to wonder if maybe people might not get the cats they deserve ?

You have to drop your "I'm the superior life form" trip and intuit your way onto the same
page with them -- which is in Kitty Space. Not People ("I'm the boss here") space.

Above all, it takes time and investment in them. They don't have the same intelligence
that dogs do, although they will surprise you with how clever they are sometimes. They
can -- and do -- learn. Yeah, they do have little angels & devils on their shoulders, but
the spray bottle from the ironing board with the nozzle adjusted to "squirt gun" setting
(after fair warning) works wonders in channel-changing.

Hell, if you'd raise kids with a "My way or the highway" attitude, you would (I suspect)
reap what you'd sown there too, down the road.

Thing of it is, they WANT to share your People Space with you -- when the mood strikes.
They just don't know how until you show them. Great cats are products of
patience and attention.

I'llhave to agree with Yak on ALL of the above! Now having 4 "tamed" Feral cats I have to say that I've come to a greater appreciation for the Feline inteligence level as compared to that of canines. Since we are showing "family" pics here's one of my latest addition, Poncho who was born in my mothers backyard by a resident Feral female and he took to me over a 3 month period and now he's in my house with his 3 "sisters" that were all Feral as well.

Oreo is NOT purple. Very Happy Mrs. Yak looks oh-so pleased to be photographed. Laughing Give little Oreo a kiss on the nose for me.

Wait a second...

...Riff Raff, the conure is okay? My mother has a green-cheeked conure... fascinating little animals. Surviving a hawk attack? That's just bad-ass. I love raptors, but they ought to stick to stuff that doesn't bite back (like filthy air-rats = pigeons). Cool

Cute kitty Yak. Glad you could help the lil' guy.

I rescued a kitty many years ago who looked similar to Oreo. Had some major health issues and dealt with them one by one until he was
better. Sadly, he had one very serious issue that even surgery would not solve and he passed away at about 3 years. I miss him to this day,
as he had the courage of a lion to endure his condition.

As for me, I've pretty much always had cats. Grew up with them. Have 2 pixie Bobs now that are getting elderly but still healthy as a fart.

Yup, I'm a cat person and proud of it. Never could understand the animosity some have towards them. But to each their own I guess.


Cheers,

RR

There was one curious (and good) thing about this kitten we found. Our Vet thinks he was around 6 weeks old. We brought him home, put down the litter box and he immediately used it, and has never gone anywhere but the litter box. Is that just part of a cats nature or were we lucky?

Most kittens do take to a litter box quite naturally. The only cat I have had a "problem" with has been my blind cat, Pretty, who many times does not get all the way in the box and goes over the side. She feels her feet being inside but due to not being able to see, does not realize she's all the way in. But we get it all worked out most times! She has taught me a lot about Feline behavior and other than when I put something down in her path, she get's around and works well with her "sisters", but is not real enthusiastic about Poncho Razz Here's her pic:



Like Yak, I LOVE my kittehs Razz Razz

I miss my kitties. I've always had cats, but the missus is NOT a cat person - I had the cats before we were married, so they were grandfathered in...but since my last little girl passed, it's a pretty tough sell to get her to agree to a new feline friend. Then we got the bulldog, and he's handful enough.

We are quite taken with our dog, a Havanese named Snickers. Although he is a great dog, we decided to add to our family and adopt a cat.

We wanted to adopt a cat from the humane society or local animal rescue. We took our kids to meet different cats (preferring older ones who came from dog/cat homes) and found out it wasn't to be. Our youngest daughter and biggest animal lover has a cat allergy. As the kid who wanted a cat the most, she has handled it well. Sad

Ther is a lady who has two horses out at the barn where I stable mine, and she is allergic to horses, cats, dogs etc but she gets three shots a year and does fine with her horses, 5 cats and two greater pyrineess dogs she has. Maybe you should look into these shots for your daughter?

Since cat allergies are the only problem, not introducing the allergen into our home seems more sensible.

I'm not sure of the exact causal mechanism involved, but that has to be strongly and positively correlated with your poor cat's inhaling the fumes from that garbage you smoke.
