Ouize in Central FL (6/19)Participant
They didn’t mention how cold it is here, though! It was 30 at my house this morning, and supposed to be about 25 Thursday morning. Brrrr – we thin-blooded folks can’t stand too much of this!12 January, 2011 at 7:27 pm #633143
Yikes Ouize; it was 25 here in NYC this a.m. Bundle up.12 January, 2011 at 11:05 pm #633144
I want snow!!!!!12 January, 2011 at 11:11 pm #633145
I want snow, too! When we woke up this morning it was 22 degrees here in sunny West Texas.12 January, 2011 at 11:17 pm #633146
Brrr, WWM! If it has to get that cold, there ought to at least be snow!13 January, 2011 at 1:55 am #633147
GD, we will be there one week from this Sunday. I am thinking that I had better travel in my jeans so that I can wear some warmer clothes!13 January, 2011 at 5:23 pm #633148
We had a major storm yesterday and rain and freezing rain predicted the rest to the week. Its the freezing rain that makes everything treacherous It should be a little warmer during the day but that melts everything and then we have lots of ice. I had family stuck in the Atlanta airport for a couple of days early this week because of the weather13 January, 2011 at 5:24 pm #633149
Dee, who is the kitty on your avatar? Really handsome13 January, 2011 at 7:02 pm #633150
CTR, that is my big fat boy, Sammy. Here is the full pic of the avatar. And then click on “older” to see what he looked like two years ago when we first got him when he meowed at our door as a skinny, hungry, stray kitten!13 January, 2011 at 8:17 pm #633151
I love Sammy’s Big mane. And he’s not tubby…he’s big boned!! Don’t listen to her Sammy!13 January, 2011 at 8:19 pm #633152
He is gorgeous and so is Emily. My Mom has a big orangie who knows he is the Cats Meow (so to speak).13 January, 2011 at 8:43 pm #633153
Feral, “big bones” don’t jiggle! He is FAT. Fat and dopey. He is the dopiest cat I have ever had and he makes me laugh every day.
CTR, Emily is a tiny terror. She hates the three boys. She is always chasing after Sammy because he invades “her space.”13 January, 2011 at 8:49 pm #633154
Hey…he’s not dopey either!! He found him the purrfect furever home,didn’t he? That says something for his smarts. And he’s just a good ole entertainer. That’s my (& his) story & we’re sticking to it! lol.13 January, 2011 at 8:57 pm #633155
Yeah, he did find a great forever home, Feral. When we first adopted him, the maintenance man in the complex said, “Oh, you’re adopting Crazy Cat?” He said the cat was crazy and ran around the complex all day and followed him around and made him laugh. Well, a few months after we took Sammy in, the maintenance man came in to fix something and he saw Sammy. I said, “Look at how big Crazy Cat got. This is the stray that we took in a few months ago.” And he looked at Sam and he said very seriously, “That’s not the same cat.” And I laughed and said, “Yep, this is now Sammy. He has put on a bunch of weight and is full of fur!” He said, “Sammy, you’re not slim and trim anymore!” hahaha!
And Sammy adores Atticus. He follows him around like Atticus is his mommy. It is so cute. Atticus usually deals with him just fine but now and then he gets irritated over Sammy being his constant shadow (he even sits next to the litter box while Atticus uses it!) and he will pop him in the face. And poor, dopey Sammy will lie on his back and show Atticus his belly. Very sweet, eh?13 January, 2011 at 9:00 pm #633156
Well…how rude of Sammy to not give Atticus his ‘Private Time’. I’d pop him too!! lol. The image of him rolling over in defeat w/belly up is cute. I know too well that look. lol.13 January, 2011 at 9:01 pm #633157
Yeah, but don’t forget that Sammy has like three bellies, Feral…hahaha!13 January, 2011 at 9:04 pm #633158
That’s alot of shaky fluff going on there! LOL!13 January, 2011 at 9:07 pm #633159
haha! He really is funny. I have to get some vids of him and post them. He coos constantly. He coos while he is playing and while he is being chased by one of the other cats, usually Emily (that bizzitch). And he especially coos when he is using the litter box. I refer to it as “whistling while he works.” hahaha!13 January, 2011 at 9:30 pm #633160
LOL Dee! Awwww, Sammy is such a sweet guy â™¥13 January, 2011 at 9:54 pm #633161
You can’t blame Emily for wanting to keep the guys in line. Sammy sounds like a lot of fun. Does he like to cuddle?13 January, 2011 at 10:00 pm #633162
No, CTR. I wish he did. He does not like to be picked up, either. I am guessing it is because he was quasi-feral until he came to us at almost a year old. He will sit next to us and he likes to be brushed on his head and especially on his furry neck and he will loudly purr, but he does not like to be held. I guess it’s okay that he does not want to be a lap cat because he probably would bust my knee caps…haha!13 January, 2011 at 11:48 pm #633163
My Sophie always liked to sit beside me, too. Now that she is elderly she likes to get on my lap she also likes to curl up on top of Smitty if he will allow it. Maybe its warmer for her that way.
