What Are You Doing?

Friday Cat Blogging

Why did you stop?

[Editor: Tip wonders what I’m up to as I stopped to take her picture instead of continuing to the second feeding station where she prefers to eat, away from the Underhouse clan.]

Beautiful colors.

Hmm the flag is up in anticipation of food and all she gets is Tin-opener Man with an uncatfoodlike (to hell with hyphens!) object

LK, she is the classic blue/white that is the norm these days, after being a tribe of tuxedo cats for years.

Yes, Jams, she is truly annoyed with me. Good thing she doesn’t have a brick 😉

Do you need reminding? You are advancing on my food spot to give me food! Hurry up! See? My tail is up to show you this is a good and appreciated thing!

Are there ANY kitties you can pat? Or are they all feral? I’m afraid I’d have to wear leather gloves so I could sneak a caress every once in a while….

Tip can be friendly. If I’m scratching Ringo’s head, Tip will come over to have her head scratched too. Froggy will tolerate it from time-to-time, actual contact.

Some of the others will rub against you, but don’t bend over as the best you can hope for is they will jump away.

Tip almost always ‘flies her flag’, carrying her tail up, possibly to keep her ‘tip’ clean and white.

Wow! What a pretty kitty. That name is certainly apt. Her markings are nifty. She looks like she has milkmouth:)

She is among our older group because she spends a lot of time being an unofficial cat of a lady who lives down the street. She was fixed years ago and can be nice, when she’s in the mood.

Very graceful (if somewhat skinny) cat. But”the Underhouse clan” sounds as if it should be the name of a Hobbit family.

All of the ferals are skinny. Part of it is genetic, another is dumping all extra fur for the summer, and then there are fleas to consider which really create hydration problems.

Too bad the flea killer stuff you put into food is so expensive, that could really reduce your ferals’ flea load and maybe help them fatten up a bit since they won’t be hosting such a large number of blood-suckers. Now if we only had something similar for other blood-suckers, like the Florida legislature… 😉

My dream is cat birth control that can be introduced in the food, as well as flea control.

I was once able to get the specific nematodes that ate flea eggs and you could spread over the yard. It really worked well, but no one sells them anymore. The standard yard treatments are poisonous to a lot of things besides fleas and ticks.
