It's been over a week now, and Felix still lives in his shoe box. You'd think that there really isn't any room to spare ...



... but you'd be wrong. This box fits at least two:

And a month or so ago.



And her Album on BikeForums.

T'would appear he has also been employing it to keep his dentition in good nick.

Methinks that when it gets down to a small piece of pasteboard just a few cms square he shall still be employing it for his homebase...

This is the first time I have signed into this site in three years. I first joined 13 years ago!
Well, in that time, a stray came to my door (2016) and she was so starved she was skeletal.
She is well fed now.

Well, I've got a litter of kittens and their mom living under my house. I set up some Blink cameras around the perimeter of my house to try to determine how they are getting in and out. I've got ventilation gaps all along the perimeter of my house along the foundation and critters can squeeze through the gaps. I've got Blink video clips of the cat and kittens squeezing in and out.

I don't feed the cats but since they're living under my house I guess they're mine.

If you can catch 'em, that is a good size to foster for a few days and then give away.

It is amazing how quickly feral kittens will adapt to the human environment.

They can be easily socialized when they are young. If they get too old, they won't adapt as easily.

Earlier this week our oven broke down after 22 years of faithful service, so yesterday I removed it from its cabinet to replace it. When I got back with the new oven, I found this in the temporarily empty cabinet:

A couple of new street art cat portraits in East London, with some expressions familiar to cat owners....
'Hell yes I'll have some of that roast chicken', content kitty

And this made me laugh, and as it was raining here in London it really struck me as a 'please let me in its raining' look, which as every cat owner knows it usually followed soon after with a 'let me out, I want to go out' look, and the cycle starts all over again....

fun post!

regarding kitties and rain -

me fave is when kitty wants to go out and it is raining

kitty pauses at threshold attempting to grok this unwelcome situation

then a light goes off and kitty goes to "the other door" again wanting to be let out

and assuming it won't be raining "there"

Booger (RIP) went out in the rain and got himself very wet. We called him a water cat. He also played in the snow.
