Welcome aboard the momofzoo friendship train. Thanks for the kind compliments. I have two high functioning autistic kids, a job that is some purgatory for some past sin I can't remember and I am starting to go through bits and pieces of menopause. I need a place to go crazy or I will go crazy. It's therapy. I also live with one cat who is in love with my husband and considers me the other woman. I got my cat Oscar Wildecat in response to her attitude that she deserves to be alpha female. He does things like place his paw between her ears on the top of her head and leave it there until she sort of "erupts". It's really funny.
*giggles* my mom ask me the same thing "why is Croumpette have been pick ?! Oscar is so beautiful" i guess croumpette is more lolcat material. maybe cus she doesnt have the grace that Oscar as. shes more innocent and looks so lost !! I dont know how she got picked but she was. i got an email from ICHC to sent them the original picture in high resolution and i have to sent them a contract signed, saying this is really my picture with my cat !!
Wouldn't it be nice to have a home that was just ideal for having animals? I know Becky would love to have room to run and access to water. I'm thinking a nice big pond or lake would just make her ecstatic. I take her to the beach from time to time and she loves it. Being a rescue I can't be certain if she's a pure Lab but I sure don't see anything else in her. From a behavior standpoint she's definitely all Lab. I'll bet your Lab/Aussie cattle dog was a busy little girl. Talk about a couple of active breeds. A back flop greeting from a smiling woofer would be something to rush home to for sure. How old is Millie? That would be rough to have to limit yourself to one pet when your heart has room for so many more. I too found there is a learning curve to the ICHC site. Initially I accepted all friend requests and then I started seeing all kinds of things crossing my dashboard that I had zero interest in. I had to let a couple new friends go and then I got much more selective in accepting friends. Those that I deleted I'm sure never missed me as they had hundreds of friends and seemed to collect them. Why they wanted to be friends with a boring middle aged guy I can't imagine. I took the liberty of exchanging your "pat" for Becky into a butt scritch. Those are her favorite and makes you instant friends with her. Does Millie take up residence in your lap or someplace on the desktop when you're on the computer? I'm sure she has an adorable method for communicating her desire for attention.
Also NCcharmer is taking donashuns to help for the costs of the two kittehs. If u are friends with her, and have pay pal, ask her if u want to help. If we have several ppl helping, it won't strain anyone's finances to do so. Let her or me know. I have pay pal too, and my niece and I have both sent some.
You should see the little 4 week old feral kitten my sister (joint venture) caught today. A feral female had 3 kittens that almost drown in the flash flood we had, we caught one of them and hopefully the mama cat can find the other two. We are going to look for them tomorrow, tame them and give them to a good home. I told myself I will NOT become attached. I think I have heard myself say that before ;-) Luv and hugs, Y.O.M.
Yes, wally01 is going to get them. I've been in emails all day back and forth with NCcharmer, and also on the phone with her. I talked to Rebecca who works at the shelter and gave her NCcharmer's info and told her that wally01 is from TN and wants them. There is a sweet male cat there, plus 3 other kittehs. She said the male cat is a sweetheart too, and the other 3 are frightened. I'm so glad for the momma and baby kittteh that they will have a home soon. And I say prayers for the others, of course.
These kitties are scheduled to die on August 31st. So they only have 3 days. I'm going mad posting this here and on FB, and I hope someone has a <3 and adopts both of them. There are 4 others there also scheduled to die as well. Sure wish I lived there, so I could take that momma and baby.
Thanks for the friend request. I really appreciated the LOL you did on adoption rates for black cats. From your profile I can see what an animal lover you are so no doubt you know the same problem exists for black dogs. I rescued my sweet little Becky when she was eight months old. I was oblivious at the time to the plight of black dogs and cats so there wasn't any special virtue to me choosing her. I'm so glad I did though. I love your heads up on friend requests in your profile, too. I feel the same way but have never included it in my profile and that raises some challenges from time to time. Thanks for reaching out. I love making new cheezfrenz.
I fav'd the one with the cats in the shelter as soon as I saw it. I sure hope they get adopted soon. My sister caught another little feral kitten this morning, we are going to "try" not to get attached to it because we can't either one afford any more. We are going to tame it and find it a good home, I will make some pictures of it to post. I will let you know when I catch Little Girl, she is the only one that stays there all the time. The others come and go and sometimes they don't come back. I sneaked down there early yesterday by myself, I am not going to let some wannabe thug dictate my life. I think if he wanted me dead, I would be dead!! I will just be a little more prepared and not go at the same time every day. I like your math and I have always hated math, maybe if the teachers would have put it like you did I would have learned more. Gotta to get the water bottle, hear a cat fight brewing. Much Lubs, Y.O.M.
