Morning KJ/All! Many in the US are off on Columbus Day, it is a government holiday so government offices and banks are definitely closed but most stores are open. I am a contractor for the government so I am in the office but none of the government employees are in so a quiet time to get stuff done. MS – From the TDK New Zealanders I knew you…[Read more]

While I agree with KZ – it is up to an individual how many cats they are comfortable with and able to care for in their space – some areas have laws or regulations limiting the number of cats per household.

Glad to hear you are OK AV! I was thinking about you on Saturday – my hiking group stopped at the Botanical Gardens for lunch and happened upon a Koi show (like a cat show but for fish!) I am going to try and link some pictures some of these fish were close to 3 feet…[Read more]

KJ, I have read all 3 books in the series and it would definitely help to read all of them in order but I think Queen of Swords will definitely make sense without the others as well.

KJ – reading recommendation – latest in a series of Steam Punk/Weird West/Horror – The Queen of Swords, by RS Belcher. Very timely in that it centers on strong women characters/heroines. I just finished it and it was a very good read.

Kincaid – try taking a regular chili recipe and use the turkey instead – I do that – it reduces the fat and calories a ton and if you like a spicy chili it doesn’t taste much different than hamburger. Good luck!

Melissa, do you have a chapter of Alley Cat Allies in your area? They helped me to TNR a large colony in my neighborhood 2 years ago and occassionally check back in with me to see if any new cats have showed up.
https://www.alleycat.org/ is the national (US) website for them.
Apparently it is a thing to take your cat out on “adventures”! There is at least a book and a website about taking your cat hiking and stuff like that. http://www.adventurecats.org/ is the web site with tales of cats out and about. I would be way too nervous about the dangers taking a cat hiking. (or just losing them)
PG has some good questions for you to consider. I wanted to add that all of my cats have hated car trips but I have known cats that were fine. I know one cat that as a kitten loved car rides and spent most of his first year going everywhere with his people, mostly short trips – Pet store, visiting etc, probably no more than an hour or so in the…[Read more]
This is pretty common with the SPCA and county shelters in my area even. In some cases they allow a trial and some insist on it. My area county shelter does a 90 day trial and they check in with you a couple of times to see how things are going. Some of the area rescue groups prefer this when there are other animals or children in the home.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day to everyone on this fine day! Wearing my green and as expected the Craic is mighty here in the TDK Cafe. Hey Buttons – normally I’d ask for a Bulmers from the bar but as we are still well below freezing here maybe I can get some Irish whiskey in some Hot Cocoa instead.

Thanks for the Recall info JJ – I feed the 9Lives to my outdoor crew.
CWS – I had a cat with a tail like that, I swear the tail surprised him at times! He would get mad when it knocked into things which caused him to lash it about – and knock into things. (He wasn’t the brightest thing – but very loving)

That sounds really cool Buttons! I entered the lottery to be able to see the solstice at NewGrange when I visited it a few years back – didn’t win of course. A less crowded version at your own local circle sounds really neat.
– I have a print of this painting, got it when I was living with several black kitties.
