Mind you it is a Scottish cat so it probably likes Gordon Brown. I suppose somebody has to.

Nah, about 5 mins earlier she was all over the bloke from BA looking all embarrassed over the T5 fiasco. She's a bit of a tv whore it would appear....
She was all over Jon Snow too.  :-*

At least it proves your house is "cat friendly". ;)

As regards TV watching cats, on one occasion my parents old cat spotted a mouse being shown on a TV programme, and at some point the mouse ran behind something.  The cat immediately ran behind the TV, to look for it!

This is exactly what started Pippin off. She saw a mouse in a badger sett on the programme rcently on tv about badgers. Ever since then she has been watching any old crap!

That's possibly so :)

That's our Small Fat Cat, who is now decidedly middle-aged but doesn't seem to have realised she isn't still a small kitten.  She runs around, squeaking frantically and being silly, and then collapses in a heap to sleep for about 8 hours solid.

Nacho lies on a pile of old carpets looking nonchalant whilst Templeton (neighbour's cat) sits in the background.

It's funny how Nacho doesn't give two hoots about Templeton or his sister Poitier being on his turf, whilst he launches himself at any other cat that comes in the garden. It's maybe because he has known them since they were kittens and has established himself firmly as "the boss". Or maybe he can't take them seriously because of their silly names...

I'm supposed to get a urine sample from Twist, so I emptied the packet of beads into a small tray and placed it on the floor near him.

A few minutes later he moved into the tray, curled up & went to sleep, much like Boushti.

Ms P just found a picture of Boushti when we first got him. There was a vet living downstairs and she locked herself out of her flat, we couldn't contact the landlord so she stayed on our sofa for a night. She had a cat in the back of her van which she had rescued from somewhere- I think his owner had died. He got his new name the instant he put his head outta the cat carrier (it's sort of back slang, from p'tit bou). He was still with us a couple days later, I eventually worked out that we'd adopted him.

He's a lot furrier, and somewhat fatter, now. It is mostly fur tho'.

This (http://i28.photobucket.com/albums/c212/clifftaylor/cat%201/cat2006.jpg) just in from the local cat protection establishment  :)
He's about 3 years old, described as a stray, and was very nervous when he first arrived at Taylor Towers, hiding behind the sofa for the first 24 hours, but is gradually settling down.
He was named "Cliff" by the Cat People, so one of us will have to change....

He looks like a slimmer version of our "Kismet".  My dad was taking one of our other animals to the vet and they had found a beautiful tortoishell abandoned in a box on the doorstep.  Holiday season, said the vet. So she came home and has been stealing food ever since!

\My sister in law has a persian cat that gets shaved every so often. They do groom her religiously but Persian cat hair apparently carries on growing so has to be kept at bay. Shaving is a kindness rather than cruel in this case. IANAV (vet) so may of course be totally wrong on this, though it's their  vet friend who does the shaving.

Very impressive shots. :thumbsup:

I'm always amazed how often the look and behaviour of big cats seems so similar to domestic cats, the mannerisms; washing, scratching, interactions with other cats.  You can almost see them as a domestic cat just scaled up a bit.

Nevertheless, there's no way I'm going to scratch one of that lot under the chin or behind the ears. ;D

LOL, no I don't think so.  For all that Craig Busch has a lot of familiarity with big cats, and how to behave with them, he has still been badly mauled on a couple of occasions.  Even domestic cats can decide that they've had enough and give you a warning swipe or bite, the same from three hundred pounds of Bengal is likely to leave your head ringing!

Talisker Clive W (was Talisker Clive O), on holiday for a couple of weeks at Chez TimO.  He's inspected most of the rooms, checked out the cat litter (hurling a good portion across the room in the process), tested out all food and drink that's available, and decided that halfway up the stairs is a good place to guard the house.

Whether he'll be happy being cooped up here for a couple of weeks is another thing, but since the alternative would have been a cage in a cattery, he shouldn't complain... yeah right. ;D

Being a totally black cat, he is of course damned near impossible to get a good photo of, since the cameras autofocus refuses to admit he exists. :-\

The first weekend with our profoundly deaf pure white English short hair thing, he drank half a glass of a decent minor Burgundy. He was drunk, and not very stationary. Manic, in fact. He was impossibly curious, kept on wrapping himself around my shoulders like a living fur accessory, before being neatly sick in his earth tray.

He sensibly drank lots of water before he went to bed.

Love the names, I assume Smudge has the smudge on her nose?

The do look like trouble, but that's kittens for you!

Cat sitting Talisker for a couple of weeks is bad enough, although that's mainly because he's getting progressively more annoyed with not being let out. :(

Biff is on the right here i should have made it clear,they both have a tabby back but smudge has a big white smudge on her back.She is very nosy and determined he is typical male follows on behind ,however when one of the neighbours cats came into the garden he was straight to the fore puffing his little self out as big as pos and basically staring the invader out whilst she hid behind me.He is already a good bit bigger than his sis.Because they are so alike when they sleep or fight curled up together you cant tell where one starts and the other ends.

This is my friend's cat, his name is Vlad!

Quote
Vlad has a bag habit. He knows it, we know it. He likes to climb inside them, much to my disapproval.

He also on occasion sticks his head through one of the handles and runs around, wearing it as a cape, super hero stylee.
Here is a demonstration!

About to take flight, SUPER VLAD!! If he's not careful I'll embarrass him and source a Halloween costume.

This sort of thing worries me a bit, since I've had to leave Tali alone locked in at home, so when he gets bored I assume he wanders around the house looking for things to poke his head into, literally.  I've put all the plastic bags I've found aside, so he can't do this, but after many years of reading warnings about keeping plastic bags away from small children, I'm getting paranoid. :-\

Vlad looks a lot like Tali, even down to the reflective collar!  He also appears to be about as stupid. ;D

I think it's a "I must poke my nose into this bag on the off chance there's some food in there" thing, even though he's never found anything edible in one yet.  It doesn't seem to stop him from trying whenever I come in from shopping though.

Cats love bags and boxes.  My friend caught her 4 yr old dragging a bag behind her, as they were about the leave the house to go to the beach.  Once she had extracted the bag from 4 yr old's hands, she found it contain a purring cat, who was seemingly happy to be dragged around in said bag.

The 4 yr old claimed to have found the cat in the garden.

Altogether now; Ahhhhhh.

Little black furry cuteness.  Tali must have looked like that once, but we had him as a pre-owned adult cat, so never saw him as a kitten.  He's not half as cute now!
Title: Re: Gratuitous cat pics - new and improved!
Post by: nic on August 25, 2008, 12:20:44 pm
Oh yes, he's a true black ball of furry cuteness... His eyes are starting to change colour with slight green undertones.

He's now litter trained too. Phew, what a relief. After 5 days I was starting to get a bit concerned that he might still need to be lifted to his tray by the time my wife and daughters come back from Japan on 2nd September.

Our mature 6 year-old ginger cat box is not impressed but is not holding a grudge against me. He sniffs about and when he catches sight of the little one he rushes off with a disappointed look.

Here is Box keeping his tummy warm on the laptop:

This is her with her half brother Marmaduke (I can't remember his full name):

He was half her size then, but he's much bigger than her now.  I think he also won a champion award equivalent when he was a kitten, but I don't think this counts once they become adults.

She stopped showing them, when Bubbles had got two black marks for scratching or biting a judge (or something like that).  If she gets a third, she is then banned from any further shows! ;D

This is him by himself, and slightly more upright.

Another blurred photo of Ollie.  After 3 days of not being friends she and Rosie have decided life is too short (and the heat pad is too cosy) to not get along...

A slightly blurry photo of Talisker sitting on top of the tumble drier, which is in the middle of the kitchen, since I've just been putting a cat flap in for him, and I needed to shift it whilst I did that.  Of course he's ignoring the flap, and generally being difficult about using it. :-\

Well dur ::-) there is no way according to the Unwritten Rules of Cat that he could acknowledge that you had the idea and built it for him.

Soon he will be strutting around, dead proud of his Awesome Cat Flap Tunnel, telling all the other cats how he managed to persuade you to build it for him.

A regular visitor to the garden. Known only as 'the Kitten' given he/she started visiting when very young. Our cat, who is normally a big girl's blouse, only chases this one out of the garden. Very odd behaviour.

What is that contraption you are pointing at me? Hmmm?

TimO, I wish I had a picture of my Bagpuss. I battled for more than a decade to keep him off my sofa. He was stripey and ginger, king of the block, and the Cassina Le Corbusier thing was his favourite nest.

Find cat on sofa, remove cat to a place four floors above, and he would be back on  the sofa, pretending to be asleep, faster than I could run down the stairs!

So a cat that spent his evenings in Tesco (all the staff knew him) came home to hog a sofa that cost more than a family car.
Title: Re: Gratuitous cat pics - new and improved!
Post by: TimO on December 15, 2008, 11:20:55 pm
I've got no chance of keeping him off of the sofa, he's got the entire day when I'm not around to make the best of it, although I guess I could close some doors and try and limit his wandering, although a closed door is anathema to a cat!

The sofa does exceed the value of my car though, which isn't actually saying much.

It's female, about 12 weeks old, and as yet still called 'Cat' - It's so small it curled up on a video case and fell a sleep yesterday. Fetched it on xmas eve, it slept all day untill we got into bed and turned the lights out then it started crying (think we should call it 'Durex'?).

We got it because no.2 son, who when asked what he wanted for xmas just said 'another cat'.

There was an advert in last weeks local paper 'kittens free to good home'. It was 1 of 4 and I think we 'rescued' it from a crazy cat lady in the dirtiest house I've ever seen. There were about 15-20 cats running around the place including feral cats who she said had just set up home there and she'd never been able to pet them. One of the toms was trying to get the mother of the kittens pregnant again. The place stunk, there was cat shit under the table and in the corner, half eaten dead animals that the cats had brought in. The chickens that were in the yard obviously slept in the conservatory from the amount of feathers and sh1t we had to walk across to get into the house.

Ours has taken to sleeping in front of the fire a lot now. Finally worked out that the wee one is gone permanently and he's not going to get bullied out of the way (his brother really was a git at times - but being the one with the big personality he got away with it).

Originally we weren't going to keep any of Six's kittens ourselves but this little bundle of fur has a slightly wonky front leg, and after her litter-mate died we got more than a little protective of her so she will be staying and taking the role of Junior Cat

Hazel our cat is not a furniture scratched unlike the cats we have had before. We have had a leather sofa for two years and she hadn't touched it until a couple of weeks ago when Pcolbeck junior startled her when she was half asleep and she attempted to jump from the floor onto the sofa arm, screwed it up and then used her claws to stop herself falling back down. Lovely big scratches and a couple of puncture holes in it now. Oh well its only furniture.

Leather, and suede to some extent, is a really good non-clawable fabric. Our last sofa and armchair which were covered in a velour type fabric were in shreds after our kittens discovered their delights (preferred to their scratch post, of course). We got a new sofa in a sort of heavy duty suedette (horrible term, sorry, but it's not real suede) which they haven't touched because they can't get any purchase on it. Ditto the leather armchair.  :thumbsup:

The carpets are in a right old state though.  :'( ;D
Title: Re: Gratuitous cat pics - new and improved!
Post by: TimO on January 19, 2009, 02:31:00 pm
I think certain materials feel more scratchable to cats, especially anything rough, which they can get a good purchase on.  The scratching posts and boards you can buy have a particularly rough and uncomfortable surface, but the cats love it for cleaning their claws on.

Talisker doesn't particularly scratch the leather sofa, but there are a couple of small groups of holes which are suggestive of him having an unsteady moment, and having to use his ground anchors. ;D

What he really loves is the corner of a cardboard box, there are a few (from the house move, which I've almost finished unpacking... Aham...) which have been shredded by him.

Hazel is pretty good and only uses her scratching post or anything made of wicker (the washing basket and a couple of wicker storage boxes we have). If she is cross that you aren't doing what she wants (feeding her on demand or opening a door quick enough) she will have a go at the carpet though.

Talisker playing with a plastic ball containing cat treats.  The idea is that you keep your cat amused, and limit his eating, by putting any treats inside the ball, and adjust the hole size so it takes some effort to get the snacks out.

Talisker, it turns out, is very good at doing this.  He emptied it almost as fast as he could eat each munchy which he got out!

Post by: Clare on February 09, 2009, 06:04:59 pm

Fcuk me! Is that a microwave?!


Yup, Kafe was the cat who left home to live with my mother; mum had a black laborador as well, the cat learned to beg because she saw the dog doing so and getting fed, realised there was food to be had and tried it herself. She then sussed that hoovering crumbs also worked and one day mum wandered into the kitchen and found the cat cleaning out the microwave.

Kafe was about 2 years old in that picture, she died in 2006 aged 17 so it obviously didn't do her much harm.


I would also like to point out that when she lived with us she was called Kafer, mum embellished it to Kaypher, way more letters than is strictly neccessary.

I don't know what happened to him prior to arriving at the Cats Protection place, but belly rubbing was a very risky undertaking until maybe two months ago - he's been at Taylor Towers for about eight months, and is only now able to relax properly with us - in fact the general level of eating and sleeping is such that we may have to change his name from "Max" to "Mr Tubby"  :D

Talisker is also on for the Mr Tubby award, having put on 1kg over the last 3 months (44% increase in body weight!)  I'm hoping that with the warmer weather, he'll spend more time outdoors hunting, and generally decimating the local population of anything smaller than him. :-\  At least he should burn off some of the fuel, and hopefully won't replace that with more energy from the additional food he gains.

Very fluffy. :thumbsup:

I know Talisker hunts, and succeeds, but I've only ever once seen him with anything.  That was one afternoon when it suddenly started to rain, and there was thud-a-thud-a-thud as the cat flap went at some speed, and Talisker appeared with a mouth full of something, saw that the house wasn't unoccupied, and immediately turned and went back out again.

He has also been seen with a squirrel by others, and there have been occasional amounts of feathers in the back garden indicating the demise of something that once flew.

42 confirmed isn't bad, but does have a way to go to catch up with the world record holder, which was for over 3 mice a day (plus other beasties) on average, for almost 24 years. :o

A couple of years ago, I saw a bush thrashing about in the Garden. Then Spyro emerged at high speed with squirrel in his mouth. I went out in a rescue attempt, and he dropped the squirrel - who then bled to death from his throat while I watched.

He'll play with little stuff - something bigger that can fight back gets its throat bit - hard!

I found a dead rat in the garden on Sunday - not sure if Spyro had it, or if it just died there. The "just died" theory sounds unlikely though.

I can't imagine the pandemonium that'll take place if he ever manages to get a live rat into the house. The girly screeching that goes on when he brings a mouse in is bad enough.

I had to post this, since it made me chuckle.  Talisker is basically on guard duty.  I've noticed that other cats will squirm under the side gate and wander past the house to get to the back gardens.  Talisker has obviously noticed this as well, and this is the first time I've seen him perched here, where he can obviously spot them, and launch an attack!

I had to post this, since it made me chuckle.  Talisker is basically on guard duty.  I've noticed that other cats will squirm under the side gate and wander past the house to get to the back gardens.  Talisker has obviously noticed this as well, and this is the first time I've seen him perched here, where he can obviously spot them, and launch an attack!

Shamelessly stolen from the Sentry report given during the ceremonial changing of the guard at The Convent, Gibraltar, a response given by (and to) me on numerous occasions during 1985/6.

And about 2 mins after getting out his cage:

Hang on, are those the same kittens? ;D

The top picture seems to show one black and ginger, and the other brownish.  Whereas the bottom shot has two all gingers, one black & white, and one grey.

Am I getting the colours mixed around (like the kittens!) in the top shot?

Talisker, two or three years ago, when he was on holiday at a previous Chez TimO, before I took him on full time, and before he got seriously into running up bills at the vets.

How was that possibly comfy?  It's not a soft bag, it's hard, lumpy, generally uncomfortable to lie on (I guess, I've never tried).  The carpet by itself would have to be easier.  Presumably he did it since he's a cat, and they are required to sleep on things that you've foolishly left lying about!

Alfie at 11mm

My daughter, Abs, saw this at lunch break.  She is convinced Alfie wants a kiss, so she sends him kisses.

Hello Charlie.  He looks like he is still enjoying life sleeping all day  :thumbsup: 

Until I met Mrs Noodley I had never had pets other than fish and budgies.....when we started to 'go out' she had 2 Siamese, a seal point and a tabby point.  The Seal Point attacked me at every opportunity, and the Tabby and I got on great.....then when the Seal started to get older and got ill he 'warmed' to me and we became best friends.  The Seal point died about 6 years ago and the Tabby, who I still think about as being in the house sometimes, died last year. 

We now have Rosie, Ollie and Angus and they are 'part of the family'.   I love them to bits.   


I am most usually a placid person, but I do get a bit 'heated' when someone gets a bit 'anti cat'...

Another addition to the Noodley household arrived last weekend.  He is called Jock, or Big Jock (he is only 10 days older than Angus, but is the size of an adult), or Kinky Jock (he has a kink in his tail)

He's a Caramel shaded bi-colour Oriental:

There's an ancient tale from Siam to how the kitteh got a kink in its tail.
The Princess took her rings off while bathing and placed them on the Siamese kittehs tail
so they wouldn't get lost.
To make sure he didn't lose them the kitteh kinked the end of his tail.
Blah, blah...

Title: Re: Gratuitous cat pics - new and improved!
Post by: Jaded on September 24, 2009, 10:38:11 am
'tis Alfie, enjoying the sun and someone being at home.

We are going to have the brown one, unless we like the chocolate one better, or perhaps...  :P

My sister's second cat is dying slowly, that's 3 weeks after her first one died at 19. (The 2nd one is Alfie's son and half-brother...)

I think we'll give her the choice of kitteh, because of that.

Mikey, a neighbours cat.

Mikey looks right dead proud and chuffed.

And so he should be... he's easily the fastest neighbourhood cat, and can
easily overtake all the other cats.
Mikey freely invites you to follow all of his "kills" on YouTube.

Here's Ozzy now he's grown up.  He is a beautiful and extremely soft cat who lets you pick him up, turn him over and tickle his tummy.  A complete softy.

I've just been hunting for the kitten photos that you posted, before I realised that you must have posted them on ACF rather than here, so we can't make a direct comparison.

Talisker also doesn't really like being picked up like most cats.  I've only had him since he was one or so, and he was like that from the start, so it's probably how he was treated as a kitten.  He does however tolerate being picked up like a baby, and as you say, having his tummy tickled. ;D

He is also a total softy.  A cattery I used before moving to London said that he was the most relaxed cat that they had ever met!
Title: Re: Gratuitous cat pics - new and improved!

So far the two new arrivals have been mostly hiding, under the radiator and under the sofa. Probably trying not to be chosen by my sister when she comes to collect!

Good news! They've been using the cat bed I put in the room they are in. Shame it was to wee and poo in.  ;D

Here is the best so far - of them before they were coaxed out of the cat carrier

The reason why you shouldn't leave a rack pack, open, on the kitchen floor.

(http://jakal.sp.ph.ic.ac.uk/~timo/TaliskerRackPack_Thumb480.jpg) (http://jakal.sp.ph.ic.ac.uk/~timo/TaliskerRackPack.jpg)

I wouldn't have thought he would fit in it, I've certainly never tried to get anything as big as him in, although I haven't tried zipping it up with a Talisker as it's cargo.  I suspect it would be a bit tight, not to mention sharp teethed and clawy. ;D

He was actually sitting right behind me, and every so often I'd get a paw or tail poking into my ear. :o

I was watching Aliens, and "Jones" the cat makes a few brief appearances at the start with "meows", which were obviously realistic enough to make him stare at the TV for a few minutes, ears a twitch. ;D

He starts out normal...

I wish I had a camera. I have been cat-sitting!

He's a small and lithe 17yr old, and profoundly deaf. He is very, very vocal, likes eye contact, and will search out every opportunity to give affectionate head-butts. This means some strange positioning antics as he finds some useful high point to either look at you, or get onto your shoulder.

He really, really has to be at eye level, or as near as damn it.

He also seems to like my ears.

Our Ol has taken to doing this as well.  I think that as he's getting older he's finding it harder to fully-retract his claws.  He just hangs there looking guilty until disentangled...

We trimmed his claws after that so hopefully he should be alright for another couple of weeks, until he gets stuck on one of my tops anyway....

What happened Noodley?

We took him to the vets yesterday as he was not himself and at that stage the vet thought it was gastroenteritis and put him on a drip for a few hours.  He came home in the evening but took a turn for the worse so went back again today.  The vet then thought it might be a liver shunt so we were preparing for a trip to the Dick Vet in Edinburgh for intensive care and hopefully an operation....but after a few more tests it became apparent he had Feline Infectious Peritonitis.  

He was spent.  And we owed it to him to spare him any suffering.

He purred when we gave him a cuddle when we were saying goodbye... :'(

I'm not taking it too well.  Sorry.

Noodley,

We're all so sorry - horrid thing to happen at the festive time - or any time for that matter.

Try to remember the good things about him and cuddle the remaining ones - LOTS

We're thinking about you all.

It was surely the kindest way.  We had a young cat (Jack) that caught FIP in his 1st year but the vet's didn't diagnose it soon enough and the poor creature kept having fits.  It's a dreadful thing to see a cat suffering a fit and we'd much rather he'd been spared the ordeal.

His half-brother, Vinnie,

Aye,  been through it ourselves a few times, but never with such a young beautiful boy as yours.  Ours are mostly old codgers from various rescue charities (Dee Carrick from Siamese Rescue and Cats Protection).

We had just about got over Rosie's death from a few month's ago when she was killed on the road, and I was thinking we should get another Siamese as it is the first time me and Mrs Noodley have not had a Siamese in all the time we have been together.  But Mrs Noodley was still not ready for another one.

There are a couple of Siamese looking for rescue homes, but this has thrown us big time.  Mrs Noodley has declared "no more pets" such is the pain....

He was so young.  Our previous Siamese had been with us for years (Booboo was 12 when he died and Hamish was 16) and to have 2 friends taken away in such a short time is really hard. We still have Ollie and Jock and they are much loved....

The young ones get you in a different way to the old ones. With the old ones you miss the seasoned campaigner, the mumbling purr-snore, the comforting chat by the fire, the routine and the slightly crusty eyes. With the young ones you lose the spark in the eye, the flash of a sharp claw and the wide eyed innocence.

Cats in snow can be funny, my parents cat would wait until she was near exploding, and then carefully walk up the garden, putting her rear paws in the same holes that her front paws had made, so as to minimise contact with the cold white stuff.  She'd pretty much follow the same footprints back down the garden on her return from her "ablutions".

Talisker's cat flap was snowed in last year:

(http://jakal.sp.ph.ic.ac.uk/~timo/Snow_2009-02-02_CatFlap_350.jpg)

and he was decidedly unimpressed with the snow.

We haven't had so much snow dumped on us this year (so far), but he's avoided going out regardless!

Mmm

We have a litter tray for Small Cat, who is pretty-much an indoors cat, and Big Cat has always made his own arrangements, involving shrubberies

BC was very ill last year and we gave him his own tray for a while, but once he was better he started going outside again. but the combination of he Landlord's gardener cutting back all the bushes in the back garden and the cold weather has seen him quide liderally squatting in his sister's litter tray

Since he does much smellier poos and wees than she does, this is Not Good.

Our darling Milo died in December, and Bertie was terribly lonely. So we found a friend for him.

(http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4069/4324500121_d734042478.jpg)

George looks somewhat like Milo (same colour) but this is not by design - we went to the breeder's house to meet a different cat, but ended up falling in love with this cheeky chappie.

Bertie was less than impressed to start with, but as you can see, has come round to the idea of having a new pal.

Sorry for the crap pic - taken on my blackberry as my camera is elsewhere, unreachable (curses).

For some reason I don't think I ever posted these pictures here, I think it was over at the other place.  The small cat is Marmaduke, and the bigger one is his half sister Bubbles.  They are my sisters cats, I don't think Talisker would stand a chance with these two around, they're both bigger and heavier than him.

Marmaduke is actually much bigger than his half siblings these days, they are both hulking great big British Blue Shorthairs.

One thing about Milly is that she currently has a few kitteh-shaped objects wriggling inside her....in three or so weeks they are due to pop out to say hello, and one of them may just be the next addition to the Noodley family  :thumbsup:

I'll post gratuitous kitteh pics as we go....

It's just a chunk of her nose then, from the picture the other night I thought it had all gone.

The plan was to remove the entire nose, but once she was anaesthetised a problem became evident with her lungs and the vet was reluctant to take the whole nasal area while she had breathing difficulties. Since the leision was off to one side he took that side off, but we have to wait for the path lab results to see if he got the entire tumour. She may yet have to lose moar nose.  ::-)

Scooby has a habit of sitting on stuff. She will sit on oven gloves, any bit of paper or, quite strangely, she will take what looks like a very uncomfortable perch on top of SWMBO open handbag.

Yes, very cute pictures.  Hilary looks a lot like Talisker, and even has a matching red collar (until he looses his current one).

I haven't seen much of Talisker today, and what I have seen was him asleep in the back garden.  When he's come in, his black fur is very hot, so he's obviously been sun bathing a lot!  "Cat things" in this weather seems to be mostly sleeping.

Look at this little picture of perfection. 
Got a text from Mum today. Daisy seems to be starting as she means to go on. :)

This is Mikey, the intrepid cat.

Mikey goes for walks with his owners, and I think he has graced these pages before. Here he is today on a walk to the sea.

On a car at the car park.

Up the lighthouse. Copious shouting persuaded him not to go further up.

Did he go to the beach in the car with his owners, or did they walk from their house? Either way, that's great  :thumbsup:

My much adored cat Sam used to come on walks round our (largeish - 3 acres) garden and surrounding fields when I was growing up, but nothing quite like that!

Following on from this

R.I.P Oliver (http://yacf.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=33292.msg685109#msg685109)

we now have a pair of cute kittens :)

(http://www.bosphorus.f2s.com/kittypics/1.jpg)

Tam

(http://www.bosphorus.f2s.com/kittypics/3.jpg)
Daisy

(http://www.bosphorus.f2s.com/kittypics/12.jpg)

They seem to love each other :)

Tam likes his food and although we haven't told him it's unofficially short for Tamworth - because he's a little ginger piggy

Daisy is alternatively known as Blodeuwedd, because sometimes she has the aspect of an owl, sometimes flowers...

Those two both look like trouble on four paws!

They're very sweet actually.  Found with their mum & two litter mates living in the trunk of an ancient yew near Newport.  They were seriously socialised by someone who knew her onions when they were tiny (they're about 10 weeks now; we've had them a week) and as a result they love being handled and purr if you look at them :)

Tam's brother was even bigger, and Tam's a big chap already.  

edit: I think they're both going to be fearsome hunters though...

edit2: living in a rented barn of a place with old tatty furniture (pending buying somewhere and replacing chairs, sofa etc) it's an ideal time to have kittens - and post Mille Cymru I'm around to look after them in the day (mostly)

Yes

They need another set of injections and, probably, neutering

There's foxes & stoats & buzzards 'n' stuff in our garden so they need to be a fair bit bigger

Plus they got freaked out when they found the lounge, so it's early days yet

¾ unknown, ¼ Bengal.  He has inherited The Voice, and the temperament, and hidden in the coat are fine black tiger stripes, but they're only visible in the sunshine.  He's lovely, and even Bonz seems to quite like him.

A hernia sorted and six teeth out later she's much happier.
It's her second hernia repair as she was pretty banged up and has a pinned knee from her previous life, the scar is just behind her new stitches.

A large box of chocolates and thankyou card were needed for the vets and nurses as she wasn't a very good patient and has dissolving external stitches to help prevent further human blood letting.

I very nearly ran this slow worm over with my bike in the hall tonight. It appears unhurt and all Kiri who must have brought it in wants to do is stare lovingly at it. The cats were most put out when I carted it outside and then locked their cat flap though!

My cats are very obsessed with long stringy things so I think they like the way slow worms move.
Kiri is a very strange cat anyway, she has a thing for my daughters hair bands and every morning we find she has brought several of them downstairs and there are some in  her food bowl and some in her water. Natalie tried to hide them from her with limited success. She has also been known to catch a mouse and put it dead but uneaten in her food bowl  ???

Put an old sack on the ground and water it occasionally.  That will encourage the slugs.  The slow worms will soon find them and will be glad of the sack to hide under while they munch on the slugs.

Also put down something for them to bask under - a small sheet of metal or black tile, something that warms up in the sun. Slow worms are protected under Schedule 5 of the Wildlife and Countryside Act, so if you can encourage them it might help slow down the decrease in numbers.  :thumbsup:

They're lizards, so if you do find a living one that a cat has brought in be careful how you pick it up. They shed their tails to deter predators so you could end up with a handful of tail, no slow worm, and lots of blood!

Talisker went out on Tuesday, to deal with an urgent problem, but decided that he didn't like this white stuff at all, came back inside, and hasn't gone out again since.  Luckily he's got an electric litter tray, since I don't let him out at night any more, so he's been using that under duress.

yeah i hate it too, my guys are inherantly lazy and if I supply a litter tray they both use it for all of their needs. They have 2 flaps one in the front door and one in the back so they don't have to walk round to get in, but they don't like getting wet or cold feet!

They prefer to spend the cold weather in their electric heated bed  :facepalm:

Talisker is as lazy as any cat, but doesn't seem to be that keen on using a litter tray, if he can possibly avoid it.

I like the electric bed! I bought one of the radiator hanging beds, like in Jadeds picture, at a car boot maybe five years ago and it's only in the last month that it's started being used.

It was up in the old house unused for nearly three years and I still put it up here. Glad I kept it as she's hardly ever out of there. She did get in before the cold snap arrived so maybe she's a good long range forecaster.
No pics I'm afraid as I've still lost my camera.

I bought the electric bed (it is actually an aluminium pad with an armoured cable that goes inside the bed) for them when they were kittens, fully intending to only use it for the first few weeks. However on the odd occasion I have unplugged it I get filthy looks and sad kitties. They are 4 years old now and it is always switched on  ;D

We had a similar problem with the light (probably a 100W incandescent) in the cupboard under my parents' stairs, which accidentally got left on one time.  We eventually discovered this about a week later, after failing to correlate the lamp's position with one of the cats adopting a certain step as her new favourite snoozing place.  We had assumed it was simply her finely-tuned cat instinct for sitting in really awkward places.   :facepalm:

Cue lots of going back to see if the warm had returned, and siameseishly informing us that it hadn't...

I am liking the adjective siameseishly! In this house it implies making a loud volume "Raaaaaaaaaaah" noise as close to people's faces as they can get, over and over until they get whatever it was they were wanting  ;D

A Burmese is basically a needier, louder Siamese.  And the Burmese live *forever* domestically, compared to some other mogs (late 20s not unknown).  I only know this as a friend took in a Burmese aged about 16 thinking it was a short gig. Cat Longevity Fail.

Yeah, but by then they'll be both hungry and furious, so guaranteed to win the noisy cat competition.


While I grew up with and have known various Siamese cats (who were all fairly loud, though had vastly different levels of assertiveness), I've only really met one Burmese, who wasn't especially vocal.  He was however utterly enormous and had the most spectacular resonant purr.  It was like having a big warm cuddly motorbike on your lap, or something.

Talisker doesn't have any Burmese in him, as far as I know, he's just a bog standard totally black domestic short hair, but he does purr for England, and is one of the loudest purrers I've ever known.

He also seems to be very chatty for a dsh, he'll chirrup, meow, and very occasionally yowl greetings, warning, and demands.  You can have a conversation with him, so long as you don't expect to understand anything he says and are willing to reply "Meow" to all. ;D

We only got the cat flap working this week, so the kittens have been using a litter tray until now.  Despite frozen ground, they are transitioning to outside doings and the litter tray is being far less used :thumbsup:

I hate having a litter tray in the house.

yeah i hate it too, my guys are inherantly lazy and if I supply a litter tray they both use it for all of their needs. They have 2 flaps one in the front door and one in the back so they don't have to walk round to get in, but they don't like getting wet or cold feet!

They prefer to spend the cold weather in their electric heated bed  :facepalm:

I don't own a cat, but I think Part-Time (my chosen name for her on account of her total lack of fidelity) probably owns me.
This is her a short while ago, checking out the comfort factor of my kitchen chairs. Usually, she homes-in on wherever the central heating pipes cross beneath the floorboards.
No loyalty. None whatsoever. I never see her between April and November.

Our last old boy finally gave in to time last November, a couple of years after his brother had popped his clogs and left him in peace. He was about 18, so not really unexpected.

It does mean we have a little force of nature in the house now. A few weeks of the place feeling empty drove us to the cat rescue place where we picked up Isla - a tiny 5 year old tortoiseshell who wants inside every cupboard; to sleep on every lap; to chase and fight and basically burn off energy in every way imaginable.

She's seen off the local 'top cat' already, although she and the chickens seem to have come to an uneasy truce. She doesn't get too close to them and therefore they don't chase her.

She's working on the tubbiness. Allegedly torties are prone to that, there certainly seems to be something as she exhibits most of the behaviour apparently typical to them.

And Mel (better half) showed me that pic when we were first looking to put a cat flap in (she's a semi-outdoor cat, certainly more so than the two old codgers who preceded her) commenting that she looked just like Isla. :D

So is mine, but I figured if they can jump an 8 foot fence then they can perform a mid air dive-at-the-flap manouvre  ;D They do make one hell of a crash coming through it sometimes though! If I made them a shelf I reckon I would end up with a cat ornament permanently mounted on my front door!

Say hello to Frankie (to be confirmed), s/he was rescued from a homeless guy who was mistreating her. She's tiny but has ginormous fur and huge claws. I say she but we don't know yet, her furs too long to check :facepalm: we've only had her half a day but already she's gone from being scared of everything to snuggling up in the sofa, though she's still terrified of boots. Never heard a kitty purr so loudly.

She even used the litter tray in the bathroom first time. Funniest moment was when we left her alone to get accustomed to the place as we went out to get food, litter etc. Came back to find her missing. After an hour of panic she finally reared her head of the of the cable tidy cut out in the shelving unit, the only access is through a 5cm hole. Oh and she loves attacking my spds ::-)

Poor puss. :( Cat's with light fur/skin are apparently prone to this, and we should put sun block on their ears.

If they lose part or all of their ears, it must have an impact on their interactions with other cats, since ears seem to be so involved in, at a minimum, some significant body language, and possibly more subtle communication that we don't understand.

I'm just thankful that Talisker is as black as a very black thing, so I don't need to attempt to put sun block on him. :-\

Mia is very placid, and seems not unhappy with life. She's become quite stiff in her old age and is not the perfectly groomed puss she once was.
I haven't seen her for more than 6 months and the winter has taken it's toll. Her (litter) sister Maudie died 3 years ago. Nothing lasts forever.

Of course both Emmie and Mia would be stuffed in nature, so they're doing a lot better as pets than they would have done in the wild.

The Tamworth Tiger being his usual relaxed self :)

New game: Cats in the Attic.  This is getting to be quite a PITA; every time I go up there they climb the steps and follow me in.  There's all sorts of horrible bits of wiring, wasps' nests & places to get stuck so we have an entertaining game of catch whilst I teeter along joists & try not to put my foot through the plasterboard...

Teh cute Volio kitehs!

Kiri, my Siamese also has a loft fettish. She nips up the ladder any time someone is up there but she's crap at getting down it again. Consequently nipping up into the loft to get something takes 3 times as long as it should because of the following kitteh rescue. I have even woken up at night to the sound of miowing to realise it is coming from above me and someone has inadvertently locked her up there  ;D

My parents also had a Siamese with a loft fetish.  Fortunately she also had a box fetish, so extracting her from the loft was usually a simple matter of providing a suitably enticing box, closing her in, then passing it down...

Now that is an epically cunning idea! Kiri also has a cardboard box fetish ...

Rubbish.

Most magpies live off carrion, most of the time. Roadkill is why we see so many more than we used to.
They make their own nests as often as they 'steal'.
Yes, they eat fledglings sometimes, but on the scale of their diet as a whole, it's insignificant.

Not to the parents of the young it isn't insignificant. It wasn't insignificant to me to see the death of the baby birds I had been carefully watching hatch and be raised in my garden as I was growing up either. Magpies are vermin, and any injured specimen brought in to me takes an instant trip to 'devon'.

You're entitled to hold a different opinion on magpies, you won't change mine though. (Plus I won't tell you you're speaking rubbish even if you are ;) )

They just discussed this on Countryfile

It seems that just about every organisation (including the RSPB) except the BSSC accepts that the primary impact on songbirds is habitat destruction and that magpies are not really a significant factor at all.

Its a weird one. Last year in my dad's garden magpies took every single chick from the nests of all the other birds. It's never happened before though and my dad shot the offending pair of birds and this year there has been no repeat.so perhaps it is not a problem of magpies as a whole but just that some magpies get into the habit of it.

So this little lady has come to share take over our home.  She's from Battersea, came in as a stray a couple of weeks ago.  Been aged at between 3 and 5 years old, probably at the lower end of that scale.  She's a really tiny cat whatever age she might be.

Very confident and affectionate so far.  Rubs herself up on you a lot, comes onto the sofa if you're sat there etc.  Not overly keen on being picked up, but who is?

We collected her today, and she seems to be settling in quite nicely.  We've let her be for a while, just in the front living room.  She's had an explore and so on around. 

She seems like a really lovely cat.

Yes, Cat1 is all black and the bolder of the pair.  Cat2 (who's now shed his clerical Battersea collar) has a little white smudge on his chest for ease of identification.

He's the more timid one and can often be found curled up in the little space under one of the kitchen units  :)

It's the skin cancer. They've cut all sorts of bits out. Apparently she's come through very well and is much fitter than they'd feared.

Cats with light fur are apparently prone to that. :(

Hopefully the cone will be off shortly, and she can get to being her normal furry (probably troublemaking) self.

LOL, I've never seen a cat which will actually bring the ball back.  Most of them will chase a ball like that, but then look at you, until you go and get the ball, and throw it again!

One of my parents neighbours had a cat who would steal balls.  He'd take any balls that he found, and which he could carry in his mouth, back to his "home" garden.  He would even try and carry quite large ones, if they were deflated enough that he could get a decent mouthful !

My first cat - who was by all accounts the stereotype of a highly intelligent Siamese - would play fetch, catch, ping-pong ball football, hide and seek, leap-up-and-grab-the-toy-out-of-my-hand, turn the bathroom light on and off and so on.  I even managed to train her that the most effective way to get food was to sit cutely by her bowl rather than tripping people up, mowling or jumping on the surfaces!  We're forever grateful that she never learned to answer the phone (my aunt has a Siamese who was notorious for this, so their line was often engaged) or flush the toilet.

Sadly none of our subsequent cats demonstrated anything like that level of trainability, though one of them did have a favourite ball that she'd carry around (sadly, even to the litter tray) in her mouth and throw at you when she wanted to play.  And another managed to train both the humans and the local squirrels to be a source of entertainment (squirrel would appear at the window, cat would go and get attention of humans, humans would throw nuts to squirrel, cat would sit and bark at squirrels eating nuts).

It's not bad, there is a little scar tissue where the hair doesn't grow. He can still jump up onto the wall between our building and the next- it's above my head height- so he seems to have plenty mobility.

Yeah the tabby one was the biggest. The two mostly white ones were the tiniest and took ages to get breathing. They were still partly anaesthetised in that pic as takes them a while to breathe out the anaesthetic gases from their blood stream. They were lucky to all make it really considering the mum had a smashed pelvis from an RTA a year ago and should have been spayed then since she would never have been able to give birth :(

Our cat - aged 12 - woke up long enough to bring me a present this morning. She doesn't do this often - last  time (2002) it was a, very lively, viper so I  guess this is an improvement.

She is still looking very pleased with herself.

I'm guessing that you can't let them roam free until a certain age, presumably because they need their vaccinations or whatnot?

Are you going to let them be indoors/outdoors cat?  My sister's cat are indoors only, but she does take them out occasionally with harnesses and leads.  Being cats, they do of course manage to get the leads wrapped around things. :-\ ;D

They're all jabbed up, but until they've been done,  they don't get to wander about.  Also, they've not started their worming/flea treatments yet.

Outdoors, definitely.  They're a pair of little hunters if ever I saw any and it would be awful not to let them roam free.  It's fairly quiet and safe round here and I think they'll do well.  We just have to get them used to going into the garden and coming back again!

Did they go all floppy and forget how to balance when you put the harnesses on? We used them for ours when they first went out and they absolutely refused to believe that it is possible to walk whilst wearing a harness  ;D

They didn't like them very much to start with, but curiosity got the better of them pretty soon and they were dragging us all over the garden...

Charlie - he's a Ragdoll. This was taken when he was a kitten. He's a lot bigger and fluffier now.

Ginger, who you you will not be surprised to learn was a ginger cat, was the local bad boy. He came home with all sorts, a literal string of sausages as in a cartoon, a slice of beef with gravy, next door's goldfish, that sort of thing. So no gingerism does not appear to be a cat thing

This is my brother's cat, Chorlton. He's not really a big bruiser, but he does bring in small dead mammals. He's more of a slut, as you can probably see. Maybe it's because he's more of a strawberry blonde than a ginger.

First, the bad news: This was Sandy, Anders's first cat, who had to be put to sleep earlier this year at *3 years old* due to an incurable disease. This, as you can imagine, was extremely suckful for all of us. He was a strong, aggressively friendly cat with an improbably bushy tail; he quickly became the feline Big Cheese in our house.

(http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3431/4566431184_37d0770c84_z.jpg)

Now the good news: This is Sooty, who Anders met and bonded with not long before Sandy passed away. Sooty is a strong, aggressively friendly cat with a pitifully skinny tail. He pretty much lets the other cats do their own thing, except when he's stealing their food or chasing their tails.

I just had a serious cuteness overload while visiting two kittens my parents and their two new(ish) kittens. They were born on May 1st, & are now in that lean, lithe, leggy stage of kittenhood, where they are hyperactive & excessively agile, hurtling up walls & bouncing off ceilings. They're now kittens who peep out from behind curtains - over the top, having climbed up the other side.  ;D

But I forgot to check the battery in my camera. One picture, & it died.  :facepalm:

The old cat hates 'em. She avoids them, & whenever they try to make friends she has a hissy-snarly fit.

Just to be pedantic, a tortoiseshell cat has no white, and the colouring arises due to a genetic trait. 

Bledlow's cat is a 'calico' or 'tortoiseshell and white'.  But very cute all the same....

One of a pair that my parents got recently. Born May 1st. They have a sibling in Lincolnshire. All the same colouring. The other one of the pair has a bigger black patch on the face, & the patterns on their bodies are easily distinguished.

They've not ventured off the boat yet, so haven't discovered what happens when they jump for the bank & miss. It'll come.  ;D

Most of their waking hours are spent in energetic play. Lots of play fighting with each other & anyone who'll give them a hand to fight (they know to hold back with claws & teeth), chasing small movable things, etc. They've found perches (one a shelf formerly occupied by CDs which have had to find a new home) from which they can watch the world outside. Very quickly overcame their caution & made friends with Mrs B & me. Purr very loudly.

An attempt to get a couple of decent head shots of both Kai and Zev, but neither was quite looking at the right place when I took the shots, and the flash in Zev's case is a bit naff, I need to use something slightly more diffuse, but often you just have to grab the camera, and use the built in flash. :-\

Zev hiding in a favourite location, under a folding ladder, where she thinks she safe from both me and Kai (and she's wrong on both counts!)  The shot does show the white blob on her chest well though.

Every morning at the moment I wake up to find George, our two year old Burmese, tucked under the duvet by my feet with his head sticking out. He is much more considerate than his predecessor Milo (see pic left) who, along with Bertie, would conspire to shove me over to nearly-falling-out-of-bed every night. Bertie has taken instead to merely sitting on my neck when the alarm goes off or if I make the slightest stirring before that. When it gets cold at night, he'll be under the duvet too.  :thumbsup:

Well, we've become a two-cat household.  Cass was very keen on there being another furry friend wandering around to keep us and Lady Chilli Pepper company.  So, Sir Scoville has arrived from a lady who is due to give birth this coming Tuesday and was becoming increasingly concerned about their ability to pay the cat any attention etc.  He's 10 months old and he's quite a big lump (especially compared to the very petite Chilli).  He's in the front living room currently (with Chilli wondering why she is suddenly not allowed in there!) - he seems pretty shell-shocked by the move (he's literally never been outside, so a train ride from Hackney to Chiswick was quite traumatic).  He's wandered out from under the sofa during the night and eaten and used the litter tray - so hopefully he will settle over the next few days and then we can think about introducing the two cats and hoping that all goes well!

Ha - a friend commented last night that we'll end up with more cats than bikes soon - I assured him that this will not be the case.  Two is a good number of cats, two bikes is far too few for two people.

He's a very handsome fellow, and I am sure he will venture out more and more over the next few days.  He was very approachable and friendly in his original house, so it's just a question of settling a bit now.  He has lived in the same block of flats for his entire 10 months, never been outside or anything, so a trip in a cat-carrier across London must have been very scary, though he was as good as gold on the train. 

He'll settle soon enough I am sure.  He'll be off to the vets on Thursday for a bit more upheaval (jabs, chipping and the chop) - we'll then take it as it comes as to introductions with Chilli.  The vet doesn't see any problems once he's been fixed (Chilli is spayed), suggesting to give him another few days after the chop before they are properly introduced.  Chilli seems utterly unbothered by his smell (we inherited his litter tray, which we left in the kitchen whilst we sorted things in the front room, along with a blanket - she had a good smell around it all and, whilst fascinated, did not exhibit any signs of distress or aggression.)  She gets annoyed when we both disappear into the front room and she can't come with us - but she tends to be like that anyway currently. 

Hopefully in a couple of weeks, I'll be able to put up a photo of the two of them at least tolerating each other, if not being BFF!

Oh well- In my email today- a photo of Ms. P's friend's cat. Ooh, I think, that can go on the cycling forum instead.

When I was talking to some Cat rescue bods, some months back, when Talisker went to the vets, they said that black and white cats are the hardest to rehome, because they're considered to be "common". :-\

Kai is White and Black, and Zev is Black and White (the predominant colour comes first), and they seem like a fine pair of little furry nutters to me. :)

The door you can't see to the left of the big mousie is the kitchen, so cat food there. The litter tray is in the bathroom. Front left is the living room (where the fire is).

They're both lovely looking cats.

She's definitely more a small cat than a kitten now, but still fairly stupid!  She can easily fall off things, and doesn't always remember not to have her claws on full four paw drive (ouch!)  I've got half a dozen scratches on my hands from her having minor panics when I pick her up, although she's generally getting better at that.

Kai is getting a little rotund, so I think I'm definitely going to have to slowly reduce his food a bit.  He does have a sneaky habit of nicking Zev's food, although that's mainly a problem with the dry food I leave out for her, which he'll happily scoff the entire bowl of.  She's much less fussy about food than him, so he often doesn't fancy her food much, and won't touch it!

Kai has been de-naded, since he could be more than a little smelly!  Zev's too young yet.  She'll probably go under the knife around the end of November, start of December, when she's approximately 6 months old.

Hector is still a tomcat (he's about 3-4 months old and has - literally - doubled in size over the last three weeks) but, from the way he sometimes curls his tail right over his back, I suspect he will start spraying soon and then he'll be booked in.  Otherwise we'll get him done when he's six months old or if he tries to hump Boo.

I think she's doubled in size since returning (the neighbours over-fed her while we were away), but she's slimmer than before she vanished, and the vet approves (and would like her to lose a few more hundred grams).

Not the best shots in the world of Zev, but at least they're mostly in focus.  Trying to take a photo of a black cat against a chocolate coloured sofa, in a poorly lit room, it was challenging to focus the camera, the auto-focus refused to work at all.

Unusually, I've let her into the living room this evening.  She'll often scarper under the sofa, where it's pretty much impossible to get to her, and even Kai can't fit, so I can't use him to herd her out!

She does look a bit chunky in that shot.  She may have started to lower her body a bit, like they do when they're a bit nervous, and there's someone waving an odd object around!  Generally she looks quite lanky, like most DSHs.

The bowl (i) isn't hers, it just happened to be there when I was taking the photo, & (ii) is just non-stick, not titanium.  The only titanium I own are titanium tent pegs and sporks!

Further confirmation that Kai is a Forest Cat, is that he's quite happily going outside, even when the evenings are a bit chilly, and isn't particularly using the heated bed even when he's in the house.  He's clearly a hardy soul!

Actually, because it's more 3D now, and not as flat, ie some of the "cubes" reuse other cubes for more of their edges, I've got quite a lot of rods and corner pieces spare.  I'm not sure what I can do with them, but I'll maybe make some more platform bits to extend it even further!

Been a while since any photos of our two furry nutters have been shared.  They seem to be getting on okay - won't say friends, but we've not had any real outbreaks of hostilities. 

They'll chase each other around a few times a day and things only get noisy/out of hand if Sir Scoville (the younger, male cat who is the newer arrival) catches Lady Chilli Pepper (small, female who arrived first) and does his trademark WWF-style belly flop onto her!  She is not so keen on that and tends to give him a good bat with her paw (she has scratched his nose a couple of times).

Largely, they seem unbothered by each other - keep themselves to themselves much of the time, they'll not get too close to each other very often, they've found their own spots to sleep in etc.  Scovie is pretty chilled out and sleeps most all of the time.  Chilli is a handful and is constantly roaming about trying to get into/onto everything possible.

I guess it's a 'tree' to her (our little courtyard garden has none), so she can see everything and is safe from predators. 

Scovie, on the other hand, has never ventured more than about 1 metre above floor level - shows no interest in climbing whatsoever.  He's quite a dull cat really, but adorable with it! 

Chilli is all the entertainment I can handle as she crashes and bangs through life.  She really is the definition of curiosity killing the cat!  This morning she gave me a fright as she misjudged the leap from her scratching pedestal onto the filing cabinet (her route up the 'tree') and bounced off the filing cabinet, off my bike's handlebars and onto the floor, certainly not feet first!  Her other tricks include hanging about on top of open doors quite a lot - she just likes being up high.  But then her most favourite hiding spots are both at ground level (1 behind a chair in the conservatory and the other in the garden between 2 large pots behind some ivy).

That photo works quite well, since I was fairly close (although not really Macro close) to him, so the rest of his body, and the background is out of focus, leaving his head nicely highlighted.  I was also experimenting with using raw images, because with these two, either the very white, or very black images are hard to correct, and if the image is a little bit under or over exposed, modifying the JPG doesn't always look that good.  With the raw data it's much easier to get an acceptable image.

In fact, it's making me want to pick his little nose for him (my poor cats have to submit to having the sleep picked out of their eyes for them daily, it's a bad habit of mine)!

Possibly you're hands are a mite smaller than mine.  I have to be very careful if I clean any sleep out of their eyes, especially Zev, since being a kitten she's sometimes not quite as good as doing that as adults seem to be.  They also don't like me approaching their eyes with my relatively big hands either!

Talisker wasn't brilliant at it either, but I think that was him getting a bit more elderly.

Until I looked at that photo, I hadn't realised he was a bit snotty, it's nowhere near as obvious as that photo makes it look!

I think it's just me being cat-snot obsessed! Technically it isn't really snot, they have porphyrin pigments that can look dark or reddish coloured in the normal amount of tear/mucus/nasal secretions which makes it visible against a white cat's skin and fur.

I used to pick snot out of my cats' eyes too.

Actually, Zev happily let me do it when she was with us at first (she quickly decided I was mummy cat and was therefore allowed to do such things), but eventually worked out that going near her eyes probably meant I was about to attack her with the evil ointment and became a lot more wary.
Title: Re: Gratuitous cat pics - new and improved!
Post by: TimO on November 26, 2011, 10:58:34 pm
If I need to do something like that to Zev, and need to indicate that I'm "Mum cat", it takes a definite assertiveness to get her to behave.  Tapping her nose, or if all else fails, grabbing her by the scruff of her neck.  I have to be careful doing that though, because she's a lot heavier now, so I have to support her lower half as well with a hand.  It does stop her when she's getting into a "I'm going to scratch everything / exploding cat" mood.

Here are some more shots, although the ones of Zev aren't as good because (i) it's still difficult to get a decent shot of a black cat, although eventually I'm going to work out how to do it & (ii) she was on the other side of the room, so the flash has only minimally helped illuminate her.

When I read up on it, there are two main thoughts. One is they are trying to make somewhere to sleep, treading down imaginary grass etc. 

The other is some kind of throwback to suckling, the kneading would trigger the milk from mother cat.

Both of ours do it from time to time on a little blanket on the sofa. Scoville sometimes does try and start suckling the blanket, suggesting the second explanation has more merit. He is about a year old.

He is actually trying to stimumlate your milk let-down reflex prior to suckling you (well that is what his instincts are telling him anyway  ;D ).
it means he thinks you are his mummy and is getting warm fuzzy feelings.

I got exactly the same bed for Talisker, but he rarely used it.

Kai did use it when he was sleeping in the Bathroom (because he was un-neutered and prone to spraying a bit), but hasn't shown much interest since.

Kai also did the kneading thing in that bed, and I tend to agree with others that it's them naturally doing what they would have done as kittens to stimulate milk from mum.  We do tend to treat them in a very kitten like fashion, so it's hardly surprising that they sometimes behave like very big kittens.

I wonder if Zev will use it now that she'll be allowed to wander around the house, and further afield if she wishes.  Her hair isn't half as long as Kai's, she'd just a bog standard domestic short hair, so she may well feel the chill weather a bit more.

Hopefully it will be as popular as the heated bed I bought Kiri and Rico as kittens to help them settle in. I've made a few attempts to unplug the thing over the years, but they are now 5 years old and still spend most of their time in it! If I turn it off they look most disgruntled.

Cats are very organised at doing what they do best. ;D

So far, the closest Kai and Zev have gotten to sleeping together, is about three foot apart, with me between them!

It'll be interesting on Monday, when I pick them up, to see how they've been getting on.  The woman who runs that cattery reckoned that it would possibly get them on better terms, or alternatively they'll end up killing each other. ;D

I'm not sure if it's been commented upon before, but isn't "gratuitous cat pics" a tautology?
Unless someone can direct me to the "crucial cat pics" thread?

Not so much Gratuitous cat pictures as Gratuitous Annoyed cat pictures. ;D

For all that it looks like Kai is a bit annoyed, and squishing Zev, he calmed down after a few minutes, and was actually snoozing on both the Tram and Train journeys!  Zev was more all big eyes and looking around to see what was happening.

A shoulder strap on the carrier worked, and actually made it quite easy to move them around (it's a short walk from the station to the cattery in Chessington), on past experience even a lighter load (ie Talisker) was pretty hard on my arms, so it was much easier.  I don't think I'll be able to do it like this next year though.  The two of them fitted in one carrier OK, but it wasn't exactly spacious, and once Zev is a bit larger, neither will be able to move around, so I'll have to use two carriers in future (or get a bigger one).

Wow, that's almost exactly what my parents' cats used to look like, only the other way up: Cleo, the somewhat lardy Seal point would usually decide to climb in second, with polite licking deteriorating into head-kicking and neck-biting when she inevitably failed to keep her back feet on the top of the radiator and would fall gracelessly on top.  They'd generaly flop around like that for a while before one of the tubes supporting the bed would work loose and the side would collapse, with both cats sliding reluctantly to the floor.  They would then wander off pretending that they meant to do that.

Well, this goombah went missing on Sunday night. Didn't show for breakfast on Monday or dinner or indeed breakfast this morning. This afternoon SWMBO is off to the doctor's. As she's getting into her car she sees a kerfuffle going on in mine.

The little sod had sneaked in to my car when I came home from Mum's on Sunday evening, luckily he held on to his doings until she let him out this afternoon. I'm checking carefully from now on!

We shared a house at university with a bloke (let's call him "Karl") who was really, really rubbish at getting course work in on time.  One essay had been haunting him for weeks; he'd got an extension, then another, and finally (miraculously) finished it on a Sunday evening, leaving him time to go to the pub to celebrate.

Unfortunately he made he mistake of feeding the cat a very out-of-date kipper and then accidentally locking it in his room when he went out. Said cat was explosive at both ends all over Karl's shiny new (handwritten in those days) essay which he'd left spread out along his windowsill ...

And then next day he had to go and try to explain to his tutor that he really had done the essay this time, but...

He took the essay in in a plastic bag, but the tutor chose not to try to read it.

I had the opposite happen once:  The school caretakers cat, who was quite elderly and not entirely in control of his bodily fluids, liked to sneak into the music rooms in search of warmth.  Unfortunately this would sometimes turn out to be a pile of freshly-marked essays next to a radiator...

Meet our new kitty, she's about 6months old anna stray. The photo's don't do her justice, she is absolutely gorgeous in real life. Her and Frankie don't see eye to eye yet, she keeps hissing and growling at him, he growls every so often.

She doesn't have a name yet but Lyn is calling her Charlie so it may well be that.

True. Anyways, she's terrorising Frankie atm, he's realised he's bigger so isn't so fussed about attacking her but she's using guerilla tactics, every time he sits down to snooze, she sneeks up and whacks him on the face, does the whole hissy thing and then runs off and hides underneath the sofa. Other than that she stops him in his path by coming out and growling/hissing and they just stare at each hour for minutes/hours. Frankie as that sad look of bemusement on his face saying why have you ruined a perfect thing?

Is this normal?
Title: Re: Gratuitous cat pics - new and improved!
Post by: TimO on January 24, 2012, 10:24:20 am
That does sound a bit like Zev and Kai.

I think, as long as they're not really aggressively fighting ie arched back, all fur on end, lots of teeth and claws, and drawing noticeable amounts of blood, it's probably OK.

I'd guess it's a combination of trying to sort out their hierarchy, and also that kittens do play fight a lot.

Kai's a lot older than Zev, but he will join in sometimes, on other occasions he just ignores her, aside from the odd swipe of a paw to warn her off.  What used to fascinate Zev, was Kai's big fluffy tail, which he would of course start twitching when she was annoying him, and which just encouraged her to attack it!  She's not quite so bad with that now.

So decided to call her Lumen, she is now confident enough to sleep on the sofa instead of underneath it. Frankie has his own reading chair he's claimed.

Weirdest thing happened though, I let Frankie out earlier, his arch nemesis is Chip, the local half red half grey squirrel, they torment eachother. They were sat on the grass about a foot away from eachother looking through the glass door at Lumen who was hissing and growling at them.

There is a company actually selling a device for this to vets, although any strongish clip will work. It sends them into kitten-being-carried-by-mum mode where they relax and hang by the scruff  ;D

I've never seen it work that well on an adult cat - impressive!

AIUI it's okay to grab an adult by the scruff to calm them down, as long as you don't pick them up by it as you would a kitten?

I wouldn't necessarily recommend you try grabbing a cat who is already wound up heh. Even if you hold all four of their legs they will get you with a 5th then bite you  ;D
I wouldn't pick an adult cat up by the scruff without supporting their weight from below since the skin is not really strong enough to take 4-6kg of dangling cat and it could hurt. Calming techniques on cats work best if the cat is already calm at the start, once their adrenaline gets pumping you end up with something closer to this:

Yes, once Zev gets a bit upset, then the kitten being carried by mum bit doesn't really work.  It worked better when she was younger, but doesn't work as well now.  I've never done it that often, and generally only when she's decided to go into exploding cat, paws and claws everywhere mode, but it doesn't really do much now.  Luckily she's small enough that I can just grab all four paws and stop her struggling, although you can't really do anything else at that point, having run out of hands!

She's currently definitely not as relaxed as either Kai is, or Talisker was.
Title: Re: Gratuitous cat pics - new and improved!
Post by: barakta on February 01, 2012, 03:55:19 pm
The scruffing just about worked when I rescued Zev from down the side of a skip.  She was very very scared/angry and I managed to scruff her while holding her which mainly had the effect of her growling but not really able to bite/claw me.  That was enough to get her in the house and up to bathroom into drybath where we could put her down and she couldn't run away anywhere dangerous.

I think we only scruffed her one or two more times and that was to get eyedrops in her eyes, Kim usually used the nicely nicely getting her as calm as possible method which worked till she got wise to it.

Post by: TimO on February 01, 2012, 06:08:29 pm
I suspect I'll find out how well it works, the next time I need to do something like give her a pill!  Kai luckily is relaxed enough that I can just flip him on his back and pop a pill in, as I used to do with Talisker.  So far, I've only had to give Zev a worming paste, and that resulted in only a handful of scratches!

In that photo, they almost look the same size.  How big is Charlie compared to Frankie?

Zev is still only about 3/5th the size of Kai, but it doesn't stop her attacking him more often than the other way around!

Frankie looks a little more relaxed than Charlie, which is much the same as my two.  Zev is the nervous one, always ready to run away, or be spooked easily, and with the big wide worried eyes if she's not sure what's happening, for example someone with a strange camera thingy!

Frankie is a good 3rd bigger, that said after a bath they're both not to dissimilar, frankie just has tonnes of hair. He's taking the offensive now, they get on much better and only growl/hiss when they spot eachother from either side of one of us. But they do play fight a lot which Frankie starts now and stops when she starts hissing. I think he's just trying to play and she's not.

Interestingly though, the other night, Toby the big male cat came in through the window for a visit, she didn't seem to mind him, infact she pretty much followed him around which he didn't like. Despite his size, he's a bit of a whimp.

This is our new kitty overlord, surveying the study her realm from on top of the wardrobe.

Say hello to 'Princess... Oh god! We have to think of a better name! But it suits her so well! Gaah!'  :facepalm:

She is a domestic short hair and very soft. We deliberately re-homed a shy cat as our house has a very regular schedule of not much coming and going and is a quiet environment. She settled in pretty quickly, spending most of the first day in her igloo, then exploring the study when it got dark. This morning she has been wandering around, meowing to get strokes and has had a bit of a sit on my lap. She is one of those funny cats who nuzzle at you until you stroke them, then instantly walk away ::-)

We have now got the door open to the rest of the house, she has stuck her head out a couple of times, but currently isn't interested in exploring. She is currently sleeping ontop of the wardrobe, which she loves when we have music on. No music and she isn't interested in being up there for long.

She still not a huge cat, albeit somewhat larger than she was.  Given she's now about 10 months old, I suspect she's not going to get a lot larger.  That is quite a small toy mouse.  She's brought in larger real (dead) mice.

Yup they can run and climb. It's enough to make me worried. Frankie will often jump through the window, see them and growl at them and walk off. Now they chase after him which worries me.

Hmm.  Kai was incredibly tolerant of Zev when she was younger.  She would launch herself at him quite aggressively, repeatedly, and he generally didn't do too much back to her.  He could have quite easily clobbered her, but seemed to choose not to.

Now, maybe he's unusual, but I suspect there's something inbuilt in many mammals that have some degree of cooperative behaviour (and admittedly cats are not pack animals, but they do seem to have some sort of social structure) that encourages them not to be excessively aggressive towards the younger more stupid members of their species.

The chances are that he'll just work out newer and better ways to avoid them, rather than them working out how to chase him down.  They're bound to be curious about him, because that's how they're wired up.  Cats are naturally curious, as are the young of most species, so they've got double the trouble!

Anyway, keep the kitten pictures and videos coming. ;D :thumbsup:

Kai came and sat on my lap for a short while earlier, when it started pouring down outside.  Miraculously he came in just after it started, so was almost dry, with just a few drops having hit him.  A second miracle involved me having a camera, so I took a few shots of him sat there.

I'm still amazed by how different he looks after only a bit over 6 months, compared to this shot that Loafheads took of him.

He's getting there!  X-Rays, ultra-sound of his heart etc. showing he's still got fluid around his lungs (but not heart disease thankfully).  More anti-biotics and back in a week to be X-rayed again.

Not really, it's mostly fur.  When I first took him to the vets, he estimated that Kai was around 4 years old, so he's not a spotty faced teenager, but a middle aged cat (unlike Zev who is the equivalent of a spotty faced teenage, and behaves like it!)

I think eating better, and having more time to wash and generally relax a bit means his fur has grown out a lot, and is much more luxuriant.  He's probably put a bit of weight on, but mostly he's just a lot furrier than he used to be.


marcusjb, I'm glad to hear that Sir Scoville is getting better. :thumbsup:

I'm tempted at set up a cat-cam in my hall. So far today I've seen 4 different cats who are not mine come into the house! I think I must be feeding the entire feline population of my street. Rico certainly isn't thin but I had wondered how I've got through a 15kg sack of top quality cat food in 2 weeks! I'm going to have to stick some batteries in my microchip-operated cat flap a d stand back and wait for the dull thuds methinks!

... Apparently he's a Siberian Forest Cat, or something equally odd. ...

The Siberian is one of three breeds of Forest Cat, which are believed to be the ancestors of all long haired breeds.  The other two are the Maine Coon, and the Norwegian Forest Cat (the only one of the three with Forest Cat actually in the name).

I reckon Kai is related to one (or more!) of these, because he has a lot of the features, the ruff around the neck, long legs, big paws etc

That chap is a fine looking cat though, lovely colouring.

Charlene.  I think you're confusing her with one of Ba'al's and Belphegor's openers of cans and changers of kitty litter.

Zev scoffing lemon sponge cake off of the bit of paper on the base of the cake, after I've finished eating the cake itself!

The cleaned off paper, it did start of with quite a bit of cake still on it, but ended up somewhat damp from cat spit!

So, Bear Grumpikins is settling in (I don't make the names!):

(http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7266/7446854588_77a4567b7a.jpg) (http://www.flickr.com/photos/marcusjb/7446854588/)

He's a lovely cat, a little under socialised and very timid of humans - it will hopefully get better as he settles more. 

Chilli and him get on quite well - he seems to want to be her friend more than the other way around - if he doesn't know where she is, he'll wander around the house, chirping, until he finds her!  We have a small litter tray challenge in that he is now using Chilli's favourite one and she won't share it at all with him (though she did with Scoville - though he would only ever wee in that one).

Yes!  Cass did the beginnings of introductions at the weekend, whilst I was away at Mille Alba - and no signs of agression at all from either cat, so things moved pretty quickly.  It took many days with Chilli and Scoville - so that's great that they managed in a couple of days.  He's enjoying having the whole house to explore as well.

he is quite shy around humans still - sometimes.  He sits at the base of my chair in the office quite a lot and I can stroke him as much as I like.  Other times he physically flinches if you put your hand out to stroke him - then runs off.

All going well though - it's nice having two cats again - especially two well cats that chase each other around etc.

After almost twelve months, both Kai and Zev still occasionally flinch and cower when I put my hand out to them.  It's possibly Kai's been hit by someone else in their house, because he clearly does visit other people (I know this from my neighbours), but Zev is far too nervous to go near anyone else.  The one time I answered the door when holding her, I lost a significant amount of blood.  She really does not like other people (no one else has yet been in the house long enough for her to not feel threatened by them).

My parents old cat lost her sight with old age, and she coped with it fine, so long as you didn't move the furniture.

One Christmas, one chair that she favoured sleeping on, had been moved exactly it's width sideways, and Cindy wandered into the room, brushed up against the leg to check that she was by the chair, and then jumped up, only to fall flat on her face!  It was quite amusing, even if the poor cat probably didn't understand what had happened. ;D

She is amazing, she will walk through a room - straight through. Then, if you are in the way, she will walk through the room, at the same speed, but walk round you.

Doesn't help her find the smoked salmon though.  ;D

Still looks OK this morning. Mind you, we had a very amusing three hours a couple of years ago filling it with the dinghy equivalent of Slime. We had to keep rolling the dinghy around, turning it upside down etc to ensure the inside was fully coated. That thing is heavy and not easy to handle on dry land!

The picture did rather remind me of Bill Bryson's 'Notes from a Small Island', where as a fresh arrival to the UK from the US, he was somewhat taken aback at the less-than-customer-oriented service from the propierors of the B+Bs on the south coast.

Sample here:
http://www.watermelon.lararala.com/unidades/essence/notes.htm

A page or so later he says:

"[...] what the Fuck *is* a counterpane?"

Neighbours' kitten.  Trotted in when I opened the door and demanded a ride on the Trice.

(http://www.ductilebiscuit.net/gallery_albums/random/IMG_3637.sized.jpg)

When I refused he went sniffing around the house, probably because his fish-dar had detected the smoked salmon defrosting in the kitchen.

That's a particularly impressive Tail.

Eventually lured him back outside with a game of chase-the-string.

He looks like an impressive young fellow.  Is he long haired, only too young to have grown much yet?  The tail suggests he might be.  His colouring isn't entirely dissimilar to Kai's although with a bit more black.

Post by: Kim on August 20, 2012, 11:29:50 pm
Yeah, he's young - he's grown visibly in the last couple of weeks.  Too young to be allowed out if you ask me, especially having observed his lack of road sense.   :hand:

He's got long hair - there's surprisingly little cat under all that - and a spectacular tail (that's natural resting fluffiness, not excited bushy tail mode), so I wouldn't be surprised if he grows up to be very Kai-like.

He's quite friendly and extremely curious - he climbed all over the bike trailer a couple of weeks ago while I was hitching it up, and I've seen him approaching random students as they walk past outside.  And he followed barakta into the house when she came home from work this evening and ran around exploring.

Cats seem to have surprisingly little road sense.  You'd think rapid evolution would have forced them to have some!  Talisker, a totally black cat, used to favour sleeping in the middle of the road in warm weather like this.

A black cat, on a black road. :facepalm:

I used to put the highest vis reflective collars I could find on him, and wondered about putting velcro retroflectives on his paws, but decided they wouldn't last very long!  I seriously wondered if you could produce some sort of retroflective or fluorescent pet shampoo, that could make a cat glow in the dark. ;D

It's not helped by our road suddenly becoming a rat-run, due to emergency water main works on the Bristol Road in the middle of Silly Oak.  Yes, the same bit of road they've spent the last couple of years building a bypass round...

Fortunately they come with cats eyes factory fitted  ;D
I think evolution has ensured that cats have lots of sex and get pregnant early enough that by the time Darwin strikes they have already left a dozen replacements!

This is Gash the Cat. He is a stray who hangs out at Press On Dry Cleaning, next door to the studios in Chorlton-cum-Hardy. He seems to be a good guard cat! He is so named because when the proprietors of the dry cleaning business met him, he had a nasty cut all the way along his side. As you can see, he is very well fed and made very welcome.

A rare shot of Zev, showing all her white patches! (ooer missues).

She has five white patches, one on her "bib", one between each pair of legs, and her front paw-pits (the patch between her front legs is only just visible).

She moved her left paw outside of the image, just as I took the picture.  She probably wouldn't have been quite so stretched out, if she hadn't done that.

Is Blitz wearing a bandana?

I can't say I've ever seen a domestic cat "in the wild" wearing one.  There are plenty of shots, which look like they're staged, with cats wearing them, but not generally when they're just wandering about.

He is. I'll have to keep an eye out for him to see how long it lasts - but I may not see him until next weekend.

You can get collars (with the standard safety-release) with a bandana attached. Tim says our cats don't needs them.  :(

It does seem like it would just be an increased cost.  I reckoned Talisker's average lifetime for a collar was around six weeks.  With both Kai and Zev it was a lot longer, but recently their loss rate has gone up.  I'm currently out of spare collars, and need to stock up.

I generally buy retroflective and/or luminous collars costing £2 to £3 each, and just treat them as disposable.  The current record for loss was a new collar put on after breakfast, and gone by the time Kai turned up for supper.


Wiggins does look cute, but a bit blurry.  Is there an appropriate description for kittens, in the same way that all babies look like Winston Churchill? (as pointed out by a colleague about her new daughter, so it's not just me!)  To me they often look a bit shocked, and tend to have big ears and head, compared to the rest of them (but I suspect big heads are a trait retained by most mammals).

Unnamed as yet, but Asha is high on the suggestions list.

(s)he may be an employee, it's not unusual to actually have a cat as a mouser, to keep vermin down, and they're "paid" in cat food.  Both distilleries and BT have certainly done this in the past.

The cat rescue bods often do this with feral cats.  They capture them from an undesirable location, neuter and treat them with long term worming and flea treatment, and then release them at a location like stables, where they can live happily, are fed, and will keep the inevitable vermin under control.  Slightly bizarrely a well fed mouser is far better than a hungry one, a strong appetite doesn't make them better!

I presume they have to go back once a year or so, trap them, and do an annual checkup and retreatment.

When we took the late great Alfie to be cremated, the crem had a "comfort cat" who came to sit with you while waiting for the ashes.

A lovely touch.

If you need a crem, Prestwood near Stourbridge were first rate.

Right, back to pictures of lovely cats.....

it's surprising how different their coats feel, percie's fur is quite wiry but pickle is incredibly soft.  Sadly she's a bit dim too, while her sister is quite cunning..

I found out recently that my dad has been carrying around this picture in his wallet of me, a lifetime ago, with one of the tiger cubs - so I got a scan.

(http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8242/8475841544_e3806c27ec_z.jpg)

Apparently back in those days I was always turning up at school with more scrapes and bruises than the other children, and with my fantastical excuses for how I got them the teachers suspected abuse. They got my parents in for a "chat", and were shocked when my parents backed up my story that the latest set of odd gouges and scrapes really were due to playing with an over-enthusiastic lion cub  - especially bearing in mind that I lived in Oldham, not especially known for it's big cat population  :)
