A little afternoon chill out with Ruthie, listening to the new Godspeed album:

Cats are def post-rock.  Dogs are what.....frat boy rock?

Does anyone have cats that hate whistling and singing?  If we whistle they will actually come from across the room to jump up and stop you....paw at your mouth if need be.

Nope, she's just all stretched out, taking up more square footage than usual.

Cute!

I was going through some old pics and found some other nice ones from my ex-pets

Young Gaston with our neighbours' kitty Zoef, she was his first love and how Gaston became so attached to cats



Lola with one of Gaston's half-brothers (Nestor, owned by some friends). Although she looks a bit menacing she was actually being playful with him




Lola fancied playing with Gaston's hair (and he liked it too!)


Lola playing with another friend, this is Sam, another half-brother of Gaston and also owned by some friends



Young Carmen



Grown-up Carmen with her babies

We kept 1 of them (Fernand who is in some other pics in the thread), and we could find good homes for the other 4, one of them is with some very good friends of us and the other 3 I never saw again but I know they are in good homes (customers of my ex"s shop, having a shop she knew lots of people and it was easy putting some pics of the kitties on the counter and finding people willing to keep one).

Late last night when my tabby was out, a huge raccoon came through the kitchen window and started eating from the cat's bowl--  I chased it out and hissed at it but our raccoons are quite bold and it was only when I turned the garden hose on him that he fled.   Thing was massive.

^ Those ba$%&rds. I remember seeing a mouse chewing out of Clown's patte bowl. Wish she could see that so that she could grasp the gravity of the matter.

We once had a squirrel stuck within the walls of the shop ... or so we thought that it was stuck. Turns out it could get out the walls but not outta the shop, so to survive the shoplag, it would make round trips to Clown's bowl of dry food. I was like ... "Wow! You ate it all?" Jim the Mechanic said that the squirrel is still inside and steals Clown's food. That little rascal. I eventually got it out. It was stuck under a really low shelf of a rack. Lucky me I had those durable gloves on, or that buster would bite and infect me with some crap. Man, did that b$%ch bite hard. Clown was paying so much attention to the whole scene, staring at that squirrel at a distance, without wasting a second. So, I was moving that squirrel round, squeezing it so hard, that it looked almost half-dead at the time. I just hurled it out, and it could barely breathe. Then it started hoping and shorty after it disappeared.

We also once had a snake. ... A snake! I didn't even bother finding out what it looked like to see what kind it was. At first I thought it was some kind of an electrical tool making little noise. I decided to check it out ... so did Clown. I was like ... "Son of a b%^ch! How did it get in here, hiding under a rack o' tools?!" So she started staring at that snake, absolutely careless about everything else. I was really worried about her; she wanted to get to know her "new buddy" ... or foe. So pulled her away, but she started resisting big time. "Let me go, you dumb ba$%&rd!" That's how I got a few scratches on my chest ... that are no longer there. So I isolated the room she was in from the workspace where the snake was. She was striving to get back in, but I sealed the gap between the door and the floor so that the snake wouldn't get in.

^ Yeah I live in the middle of a city and we still get critters of all kinds.. I can smell the odor of skunk right now.   I finally boarded off the space under my side passage door where coons and skunks were moving back & forth from the street to our yard.   Cut down big time on the beastie traffic.   Now the occasional one doesn't seem so bad.   Luckily my cat is way too cautious to mess with a coon but he does go after the odd skunk now&then.

Let's see; we get squirrels, rats, mice, skunks, raccoons, snakes, stray cats, birds, crickets, paper wasps, huge red & orange garden spiders, and the rare opossum.   I don't see many salamanders or silverfish like I used to.   We have had several big paper wasp (yellowjackets) nests attached to our house and one unfortunate bumblebee nest inside the walls (an ugly business), as well as a 'coon living under the house that we had humanely caught and released.
