Kittens are cute when they still have the stiff bottle brush tails, then after that they turn into cats

DeanT - Posted - 05/04/2016:  16:14:08


I like our cat... no mice flies bugs or spiders in the house...

OM45GE - Posted - 05/05/2016:  03:30:30


I've never been much of a cat guy. I've owned some but thy were always just there, not really a companion like a dog. 

DeanT - Posted - 05/05/2016:  05:10:02


our cat and our Shih-Tzu provide endless entertainment

OM45GE - Posted - 05/05/2016:  05:31:21


I always feel like cats are just tolerating our presence whereas dogs really like us.

dmiller - Posted - 05/05/2016:  07:52:19


Dogs have masters.  Cats have servants.  evil

dat - Posted - 05/05/2016:  09:09:52


a cat resembles a football to me, I wouldn't kick one, but the thought does happen anyway for just a little bit

DeanT - Posted - 05/05/2016:  10:30:11


cats are funner to mess with

dat - Posted - 05/05/2016:  12:49:49


tape on the front feet, or all four    evil     big

OM45GE - Posted - 05/05/2016:  13:06:57


You can make a cat insane with one of those miniature R/C cars

dat - Posted - 05/05/2016:  14:20:13


or a lazer pointer

DeanT - Posted - 05/05/2016:  16:14:11


or a Shih-Tzu...

OM45GE - Posted - 05/06/2016:  03:15:07


Toby used to use cats for exercise until he caught up with one who promptly opened his nose with a swipe of its claws. Now he gives them plenty of space. 

DeanT - Posted - 05/06/2016:  05:33:37


Our cat is declawed. He's never been outside in his life

dmiller - Posted - 05/06/2016:  08:18:10


The cat (Mittens) at the group home is an indoor cat too.  We open the sliding glass door leading out to the deck to let in fresh air through the screen door.  Mittens figured out how to claw open the screen door in no time flat, and get out on the deck.  She was very, very cautious once she got outside and the minute we showed up at the screen  door, she would immediately run back inside to "safety".  



Once I saw her sneak outside, and I was able to close the big glass door before she saw me there.  She was FRANTIC trying to get back in.  Opened the glass door and she was like a bolt of lightening going past me back into the house.  



Nowdays we put a strip of duct tape on the screen door and door frame so she can't get out.

I had a cat when I was a kid that was pretty good, he acted more like a dog than a cat though, he would come when you called it and he followed me around like a puppy, 

chuckv97 - Posted - 05/06/2016:  10:29:26


I used to put my cat in a pillow case and twirl her around like a mini carnival ride. Then I'd lay it on the floor and watch her stagger out cross-eyed...lol...(my confession for this month)

OM45GE - Posted - 05/06/2016:  15:14:50


My older sister used to blow pot smoke into her cat's face and get it totally stoned. It acted very strange and seemed to be seeing things that weren't there. 

DeanT - Posted - 05/06/2016:  17:40:04


My cat doesn't need to smoke to act stoned!

OM45GE - Posted - 05/07/2016:  11:34:01


That's true, all they have to do is act naturally 

DeanT - Posted - 05/07/2016:  15:18:16


in all their parallel universes

I had an uncle down in the southern Illinois (DuQuoin/ Carbondale) area who was a foreman for the Peabody Coal Company.  Lots of strip mining for coal was going on in the area then and once the coal company was done with a particular "mine" location (strip pit), they moved on and those pits eventually filled up with water forming a bunch of little lakes.



My uncle Ernest bought one of the abandoned pits back in the mid 1960's along with a field office building that was going to be abandoned/ and had that "office" moved to the pit he bought and turned it into a bunkhouse.  Pretty soon the abandoned pit turned into a lake, and Uncle Ernest started holding "fishing week-ends" during the summer for the men (only) in our  family.  It had electricity, but no indoor plumbing or running water so he figured the women in the family wouldn't be interested in spending time there for more than an afternoon or so.



I remember one fishing week-end (back in the day) when one person brought their dog along with them.  Someone there suggested sharing a beer with the dog, so a beer was poured into the dog's bowl.  The dog lapped it up immediately, and looked up for more.  He was fed 2 or 3 beers that night, and the next morning you could tell that dog had the worst hangover ever!  It was entertaining to watch the dog the night before, but everyone felt guilty seeing him moping around the morning after.  We gave him some aspirin, and swore we'd never do that again.

DeanT - Posted - 05/08/2016:  00:26:15


No hair of the dog for him!

OM45GE - Posted - 05/09/2016:  03:27:44


Good thing you didn't let him drive. 

dat - Posted - 05/09/2016:  09:19:14


some of our old fishing trips, a drunk dog would have been a better choice for driving than any of us were

DeanT - Posted - 05/09/2016:  10:08:41


drunk dogs don't get thrown in jail either

dat - Posted - 05/09/2016:  10:35:41


a friend of mine had an allergic reaction to a bottle of Jim Beam and a motorcycle, 25 years later you still couldn't chase him down and get him on either one.   I know he would had rather relied on a good dog that night for driving

OM45GE - Posted - 05/09/2016:  12:15:30


"a friend of mine had an allergic reaction to a bottle of Jim Beam and a motorcycle" - great phrase!

DeanT - Posted - 05/09/2016:  17:04:23


lucky he's alive...

OM45GE - Posted - 05/10/2016:  03:31:06


Aren't we all?

DeanT - Posted - 05/10/2016:  04:59:55


And I didn't even have a motorcycle. Jim Beam helped me send one car to the junk yard. The Judge made me pay for the guardrail

dat - Posted - 05/10/2016:  05:55:19


yeah, one or a few bad times, and folks forget the good times ol Jim brought around too   big

DeanT - Posted - 05/10/2016:  10:40:54


I had way too many good times, just wish I could remember them

dat - Posted - 05/10/2016:  14:05:13


hard to forget when everybody reminds you of them,  huh?

chuckv97 - Posted - 05/10/2016:  16:07:32


Strangers used to come up to me and tell me what I did

DeanT - Posted - 05/10/2016:  16:57:57


sometimes I didn't want to know...

OM45GE - Posted - 05/11/2016:  03:37:40


Ignorance can be bliss. 

DeanT - Posted - 05/11/2016:  04:29:07


must be interesting to be the bartender

dat - Posted - 05/11/2016:  07:03:29


probably lots of laughs and lots of aggravation  

OM45GE - Posted - 05/11/2016:  07:42:15


My best friend tended bar for years. I think he found it more aggravating than amusing after a while.

dat - Posted - 05/11/2016:  09:59:52


I would drink up the profits.    I don't keep liquor around the house 'cause I like it, ifin I was around it all the time, I would drink it

DeanT - Posted - 05/11/2016:  10:08:22


being in a bar band, long after I sobered up, was a riot. 

OM45GE - Posted - 05/11/2016:  10:14:27


It can definitely be entertaining to watch drinkers when you're sober. It can be annoying as hell sometimes too.

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 05/11/2016:  13:05:15


Hey all!  I've been so busy recently, I feel bad about neglecting BHO.



I wanted to stop in, though, to share some bad news.  Mr. Quimby, the real Mr. Quimby, my kitty, died last Friday.  It was pretty sudden.  He'd had a couple days over the last month or so when he hadn't quite finished his food, so I'd set up an appointment for Monday for him to go in to the vet just for a check up.  But then Thursday last week he didn't come down to eat at all for breakfast, so I called the vet and got him in that evening.  They gave him some fluids and ran a few blood tests and sent him home telling me that if he hadn't perked up by morning, to bring him back.  He was a little better right around bed time, but the next morning was still pretty unhappy.  So I took him back in.  They gave him some more fluids and some pain meds, but it was pretty obvious there was something going on that we really couldn't pinpoint, and based on how unhappy he was, I decided to let him go.



I lost another one of my kitties about a month and a half ago, so he had some company waiting for him on the other side of the rainbow bridge.



The house is emptier without him, though.

dat - Posted - 05/11/2016:  13:07:38


her there 'Niffer, sorry to hear 'bout the cats, 

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 05/11/2016:  13:25:11


Looks like things around here are still pretty much the same.  Still talking about dogs and crazy antics in the past related to too much booze.

dat - Posted - 05/11/2016:  14:51:33


we ain't much fun since we quit drinking



 



my bride put up with me while I was doing crazy stuff, I don't want to put her through all that again, she might not put up with me
