Just for your information.
Cats recognise their owners' voices but never evolved to care, says study


Well, of the cats I've been around:

Misty cared.

Sheba cared.

Einstein and Cali cared. (Though Cali cared less than the others; but she cared.)

Misty, and Einstein even came when called. If Sheba was outside, all I had to do was tap on the glass door, (back yard), in a certain manner and she would come running to be let in.

No, not usually... They just came when I called... When they came to me I would reward them with hugs and pets and the usual love that I gave them...

LOL!

Re: cats coming when called: Baby comes if he thinks I might feed him. And that's the only time I call him. Otherwise, he wouldn't give two dead flies for me.

All my critters have selected hearings at times.
Some times in the evening we have to resort to a spoon on a tin to bring Tinkerbell in.
I don't think she is sure about Humans in general. When we rescued her, she was only four weeks old on a very cold October night. She scratches at my window to be let in and comes into my room to give me visual signals that would like to go outside.
Pluto will always be a planet to me.

Baby settled between my legs earlier this evening.





Even in my lap, he won't let me pet him.

Tinker won't even do that, but she will confirm verbally, I would like to go outside.

There is a raccoon (sort of) in Google's Thanksgiving Doodle.

Another close encounter at my house last night. The raccoon was inside on the table eating cat food, as usual, and the dogs ran out from the bedroom, barking, as usual. Apparently this time one of the dogs was blocking the doggie door, so the raccoon ran through the other doggie door, which leads from the kitchen into the laundry room. But there is no other exit from the laundry room, so the raccoon was trapped. Fortunately, my dogs won't go through the kitchen-laundry room doggie door, so the raccoon was safe. Just trapped. I had to put the dogs in the bedroom with the door closed. Then I opened the door between the kitchen and laundry room and waited. Eventually the poor little thing came out and, when it realized I was standing there, it went outside through doggie door number one.

I'm really going to have to start taking some pictures when things like this happen.

Hello friends. As many of you have guessed from the picture Eric posted, Ol' Pookers and I went up to Northern Wisconsin to visit his parents for the Thanksgiving Holiday. We got home very late last night. Eric went into work today, but I was smart enough to take one more vacation day at home... Mount Laundry awaits me.

My mother-in-law feeds a wide variety of wild birds through the winter. I was delighted to discover that chickadees are extremely "trusting." (Eric would argue "dumb.") Either way, it did not take much to train them to land on my hand.

They look like this up close:


Happy Holidays!
