Just now.......the day's western sun is setting.

And it shines through the west facing windows in my bedroom.

And shines upon the kitties.

There is not much more beautiful in life than the sun shining on a cat.

All their beauty is exposed. Every portion of their being open to view.

A cat's eyes in the sunlight.....oh, my.

And the silly things look back at you, wondering about your curiosity.

They simply do not know how beautiful they are..

They just don't know.

That is the wonder and wisdom of kitties.

Could I only be so innocent.......

Maybe I was 40 years ago or so.
Maybe I was.

And I iz sure their thoughts do not go that deep.
They are simply too innocent to think that way.

Ever stare one in the eyes........?
They are simply devoid of any hate or judgement.
There is nothing there but love for you.

All there is.

All they have to offer.
And well all they need to.

Neverending love.......
What more could anybody ask for, or give to another?

It's what kitties do.
You just have to give them a bit of kibble and a touch now and then, and they give you all that they are in return.

The wonder that is 'kitty'.......

Now perhaps you can start to understand the kittyman and all that I am....or am not, depending on your point of view.

God made me what I was. Kitties made me what I am.

Meow.

Sun has gone away now.
But not the visions of the kitties burned forever in my mind.

So now I sleep.

With the kitties.

Have 4 cats at home.

ALL were found on the street.

My Vet, if you adopt a feral animal, will only charge 'half-price' for examinations and shots. Any overnight boarding (for a 'fixed' female) is FREE!!!

All 4 of my little ones were barnyard rescues taken out of somewhat feral situations. And 2 of Lori's are rescues from local shelters. Her 2 Maine Coon brothers were the first ones she ever bought from a breeder, because she simply fell in love with the breed after Oscar, who was a rescue.

Your vet is to be commended for trying to be a part of the solution.

Meow meow!

Hi Kitty People!

I am trying to figure out whether something is normal cat behavior or not. When Zsa Zsa, who is about 6 months old, happens upon "prey" (say a tasty looking bug or a spider out of reach) she meows at it while she tries to stalk and catch it. It seems to me that this is a bad move for a predator. Announcing one's presence to one's intended victim before one "does it in" gives the intended prey a warning and ups the odds that your snack will successfully get away.

We've never had a cat who has vocalized while hunting before, and we've had about 7 cats over the years. Something tells me that if Zsa Zsa were a feral kitty, without the benefit of a food bowl that is filled daily by her dutiful house monkeys, she would hunt so poorly that she would pretty much starve to death.

So is vocally announcing your presence during a hunt in the realm of normal cat behavior? Is Zsa Zsa so sure of her success that she is emiting a victory cry, or does she simply lack kitty cat impulse control?

I can see this I got carried away in the other form, and this pix should be here. This is the Fryja cat.

Hi Clyde,
When it says Banished and gives a user ID it just means the poster broke one of the forum rules and has been banned for awhile. In this case it's Mark again and he should be back in a few days.

She is too young yet to master hunting nuances, so it is kitty frustration at not being able to catch it immediately. Seen it before.
