Good job Chowser!!! The kitten looks infinitely friendlier in the video than the cruiser pics.

Chowser, you have yourself a buddy! Thanks man, well done.

Awesome pic indeed, one happy cat. And I hate to be 'that guy' but why isn't he fixed?

You know what that kitty in the video really wants? He wants a momma cat to lick his fur and clean him. Watch a mother and her kittens. Its how they bond. You could imitate it by using your thumb or a finger and rubbing its head and ears. Just slower. You'll know when its had enough, it'll just walk away and curl up for a nap.

Things cats do, but done by humans.

Doesn't matter what the press says. Doesn't matter what the politicians or the mobs say. Doesn't matter if the whole country decides that something wrong is something right. This nation was founded on one principle above all else: The requirement that we stand up for what we believe, no matter the odds or the consequences. When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree beside the river of truth, and tell the whole world -- "No, YOU move."

Thank you.

Every couple of months I take a ride over to the Berks County Animal Rescue League and go look at the cats and kittens. There's usually plenty to look at unfortunately.

One spring a few years back I went in there and there must've been twenty or thirty kittens, they were in cages and carriers all over the room. It was surreal.

I commented to one of the girls who work there and she turned around and snapped at me that if she saw one more kitten in here she was gonna lose it. Whoa.

Because we all know what happens to them if they don't go home with someone. And every cute little kitten that gets adopted leaves an adult behind who doesn't.

You gotta sterilize your pets.

I did not know that.


I believe it's when the recessive gene for the stripe backround color is also black, thus you have black-on-black. Black panthers, too, are actually leopards with a black backround.

I'm not sure about the black cats thing. I live with 3 of them. And I spend way too much time watching and petting them. I do know that the daughter black longhair isn't really black, she's a dark red. When the sun shines on her, you see the red glow. But no stripes.

I know this is fundamentally unfair, but it's much more important to sterilize the females. If you sterilize a female and miss a male, there are a lot or kittens that aren't going to be born. If you sterilize a male and miss a female, there's always another male somewhere who'll do the job.

It only takes one to knock up all the females in an area. And you'll never get all the males.

Chowser,

You're a good man.
Any complaints, send them to me. I'll gladly explain to them the error of their ways....

Is it feral? Would it let you handle it without drama?


He scratched me at worst and wouldn't let me near him (hence I decided to just shut traffic down before he got ran over). I finally scooped him up and we became fast friends. I was very reluctant as my last kitten rescue didn't survive, but at heart, I'm a softie. I rescued a bull mastiff mix last month that someone chained to a tree in the middle of nowhere (I wish hateful things on these people).


You did good.

Thank you for the little daily dose of increase-of-faith-in-humanity. Every little bit helps. Smile

Strange. I've had two blackies, and you could defintitely see the stripes in the right light. Maybe there's another gene mode for making all black cats, I wouldn't know. But Google it, it's a real phenomenon.

EDIT: OK, here we go from the bastion of informality, Wikipedia: "Most solid colored cats result from a recessive gene that suppresses the tabby pattern. Sometimes the tabby pattern is not completely suppressed; faint markings may appear in certain lights, even on a solid black cat." So most.

My 3 black cats look like solid black, but when they're sunning themselves on the deck, you can see a faint pattern.

Rocky update:
Got him to the vet yesterday. Approximately 6 weeks old. No ear mites but has a trace of mange. Definitely has worms which I saw. Inside of his ears were covered in motor oil so he was probably hiding in cars. Still a little shaky since he probably hasn't eaten in awhile before I got him.

Vet says he should be fine. I just have to fatten him up a little. No problems there.
