When I saw this thread, I assumed Buff started it; it's nice to hear there are other MPers that love their (can't. do. it.) kitty cat, kitty cat, KITTY CATS!
I often tell Jonny that I'm going to start feeding the neighbors big, fatty, ratty, black cat that likes to lurk on our backyard walls, and sneak past our sliding glass door like clock-work at certain times of the day. Jonny won't let me feed the poor, starving fat cat, he says, "NOO, sweetie, DON'T!!! " I feel sorry for it, especially when he brings us a dead bird for a gift, and when he cries loudly at night, in our yard at times.
Mark, that video is hilarious! Your Cat has AT TI TUDE! I have a couple of friends that get that same look in their eyes, and those same expressions, and body gestures after one too many shots of Tequila. SECURITY! SECURITY!
This is my pet cat Dottie, she's so cuddly; yet, also a vicious life-sucking bitch from which there is no escape
In a zoo in California, a mother tiger gave birth to a rare set of triplet tiger cubs. Unfortunately, due to complications in the pregnancy, the cubs were born prematurely and due to their tiny size, they died shortly after birth.
The mother tiger after recovering from the delivery, suddenly started to decline in health, although physically she was fine. The veterinarians felt that the loss of her litter had caused the tigress to fall into a depression. The doctors decided that if the tigress could surrogate another mother's cubs, perhaps she would improve.
After checking with many other zoos across the country, the depressing news was that there were no tiger cubs of the right age to introduce to the mourning mother. The veterinarians decided to try something that had never been tried in a zoo environment. Sometimes a mother of one species will take on the care of a different species. The only "orphans" that could be found quickly, were a litter of weaner pigs. The zoo keepers and vets wrapped the piglets in tiger skin and placed the babies around the mother tiger.
Cat rescue. #2. The first time, months ago, Tonto (the cat) went up into the tree and cried for hours until I went up after her. That time she was only 25ft up or so. Has anyone tried to pull a scared cat out of a tree. Let me tell you, they claw like crazy. So this time she ended up another 10' higher, past a blank section. My wife, wanted me to get her, and I refused due to the last beating I took with the scared puss. Anyway she got worried after an hour of the crying, and was serious about calling the fire dept. Which of course meant I had to go up after her. Well this time, I figured rather than get clawed to hell trying to bring her down. I would just climb up, and rapel down. Worked like a charm.
Cute but stubborn, independent, and annoying. There is no such thing as a 'climbing cat' as far as heading out to the cliffs with your cat. The dog post will have waaay cooler outdoor action photos I'm sure.
