Well, NOLA, when you're going to answer my simple question? I'd like to compare, it's fun.

Really, people, what's the problem? Everybody soooooo cares about politics & sports today when hugely important Cats topic is, really, the best? Weirds me out.

"What's the problem?" I've been traveling the past few days - driving 1120 km to Louisville, Kentucky, so haven't been checking all the SS posts.

I loved them all. If I had to pick a favorite it would be the cat waves.

Believe me, I'd much rather see posts about Cats. Politics is depressing.

 LOL

This is a little lugubrious perhaps... An old schoolfriend of my partner's is a cat person and keeps them as pets. However, when they die she puts them in the freezer. She now has three in there. Perhaps her partner is a... well, let's not go down that road, not today anyway. Grin 

I suppose it's no worse than flushing your deceased parrot down the toilet, which is what a close family member once did...

Mr Fuzzy - 2001-2018

I've been nursing my dear cat for a while, but he has now gone on to cat heaven.
He and I had been through lots of ups and downs through the years. He was always a sweet, friendly little guy who everybody loved.
I'm going to miss him terribly.

Bad news of course but, the cat lived 119 years! Did he die due to natural causes or did he get ill? What did you nurse him for?
I too will miss Mr. Fuzzy. Sad Liked the stories you shared about him.

Yes Mr Fuzzy lived a fairly long life (I say fairly because its becoming more common for indoor cats to live into their twenties). He had some health problems early on but had been healthy since early 2005. He was pretty active, loved to play and greet people, and was best buddies with BooBoo the dog. I took the photo in the avatar at the beginning of this year, a month or so before he started losing a lot of weight. The Vet thought it was a infection and not renal failure (the downfall of most of our cats).
We found a spot at our place in the woods to bury him this afternoon. Ill plant some flowers there later.

I didn't know it was called "catloaf". Yes, Mr Fuzzy and our other cats have done that pose.
In our family, we call it "doing cute", as in "come see Minnie Cat, she's doing cute."

Good guess, but it's actually from a  tapestry made by Dom Robert, a Benedictine monk.
He made beautiful tapestries depicting scenes from the Bible. This particular tapestry was from the Gospel of Luke when Mary visited her cousin Elizabeth. This little feline is known as "Magnifi Cat." ( the Magnificat is the prayer of praise Mary says during that visit).

A dear friend of mine had access to a button machine. He made a button of this kitty and gave it to me.

Listened to a delightful recording that is available online.
It's called Snoopycat and it consists of narration and songs by legendary American singer Marian Anderson, who was in her 60s when this was recorded but is in fine voice.
It's an homage to her cat.
It's supposed to be a children's album, but the story about a sweet, curious black kitten would appeal to all ages .

Thanks, will try to find it in free music sites.

Typed the name "Ursula Howells" in youtube to see where else this amazing British thespian with plummy regal voice played besides the lead villain in BBC Miss Marple, "Murder Is Announced". This is 1st result.  https://youtu.be/jAE0yX3E7dI?t=123  It's timed right when you see the cats, the kitchen is rife with them! :D To top it off, there's few pigs, dogs & pets alike. It stars John Gielgud as chap with "cat fix". [Ursula appears at 8:33]

As much as I love cats, there's no way I would have them on the table when preparing to bake something. Cat hair in a pie isn't very appetizing!

NOLA BB Fan - My thoughts are with you as you mourn the loss of Mr. Fuzzy.  Some people just don't get how much we can love our pets. What always gets me to the other side of grief is the knowledge that, for the time they were mine, they had a good life; many animals do not.

In the other thread, you told about your TV-watching cats. You do have cats then (in the cousin post you replied to, in its 1st edit I did say "You're cat fan, I can tell"). I'd like if you answer to Reply #316 question - which looks like you didn't see - to contribute to this nice thread, here it is:

Mr Fuzzy was a,special cat  Early on a Saturday morning in November 2001 my 19.5 year old cat, Fou Minou, died in my arms . I found a shoe box to put her in, and left my house to go to our country place to bury her. Outside was a mama cat and her kittens. The mama and all but one of the kitties ran off. That one black kitten with the white fuzz on his chest who stayed was Mr Fuzzy

I couldn't take him in at the time as I was having a hard time dealing with another elderly cat who had feline dementia (she'd start screaming very loudly - not meowing, screaming - and I'd run to her thinking something was wrong. But nothing was wrong; she just wanted me to be with her.) Eventually I was able to let Mr  Fuzzy inside, but in the meantime I could hear him meowing outside, and one time he actually managed to get in my attic. Then he got up into a tree and meowed for me. I got him down and sat on the back step, holding him. He was purring away, licked my ear, and stole my heart.

NOLA BB Fan - So Mr. Fuzzy chose you. So sweet. He was a lucky kitty.

RRA1 - I'd always had dogs since I was 5 years old. They were always rescues of some sort who found their way into our lives. In 2010 my Dachshund died and three young cats were brought home by my three sons. I tried to find them homes, the shelters were full of kitties and I could not guarantee that they would be adopted, so...I made arrangements to have them spayed and neutered the following month. By then, the two females were pregnant and we ended up with six kittens and two adults. Franklin was not nursing and was being rejected by his mother, Sweetie, so I took him to the vet for care. He died the next day. When my son came home with his little body, the mother, who never went near the door, bolted out and into the street. She was killed by a car, leaving us with three one-week old babies to care for, 24/7. (The other mom, Isis, refused to nurse them - bitch!) I was proud of my sons, who were loving and responsible during their shifts. I found a home for one, leaving us with 6 in all. Arlo was a crazy boy who sneaked out of my fenced-in yard last fall and never came home. I hope that someone took him in - he was very personable and affectionate. Terrence died of an undiagnosed heart condition. I (kids are gone) now have 4.  Bronwen is tiny and looks like a kitten. She bullies and intimidates the other two girls, Isis and Mercy (both skittish, nervous Nellies), and keeps me up nights when she is in heat. Smokie, the father to the kittens, is dignified and remains above it all. For all of the heartbreak, mess, and noise, they have been and continue to be a comfort during a very rough time.
