Taking her in brought a smile to the face of St. Francis. Well doneWe had an older cat and I would fold a cot blanket a certain way so when she jumped on my lap she could go under 3 or 4 layers and stay cozy. She was a stray and it took about a year before she wouldn't burrow herself behind or under something if we weren't with her. She was deaf so living outside must have been very difficult. Cats who have had a rough start just love being house cats!
So sorryWe had to put Whimzy (shown below) down a number of weeks ago. That left our other cat Brady at a bit of a loss for feline company.

My daughter was also displeased with the current cat/human ratio. So below is Brady with his new sisters, Opal (left) and Zia (Right). They could never replace Whimzy but they do liven things up around the house.

that's extra funny to me. My cat doesn't chase the red dot. He used to but after a short while he pounced on it and saw it reappear and got this look on his face that can best be described as "funk this". He now will not react to the red dot.
My cat loves to watch my pipe smoke. It hilarious.Just guessing, but I think cats like pipe smoking because it involves their people sitting still and being quiet. It produces interesting clouds of smoke that drift slowly through the air. It produces interesting smells. It causes people to look at reading material or inward and not at them, which is good cat etiquette. It makes little burning, wheezing, and whistling sounds that are interesting, and also some lip smacking that reminds them of meal time. It often results in their people being seated, which creates a lap or a horizontal leg to warm against. It keeps their people in a companionable mode,so they can find a place to snooze close at hand knowing they have company. Cats somewhat parent their people, and pipe smoking means that their people are close at hand and under good feline supervision, which is important to a cat. And it means that if their people make any moves toward the cat food or treats, they'll be right on the spot.
Once again, a "Like" to each one of these cats. What fine felines.
I'm not worried. My wife won't even touch my pipes....All I can say boys, don’t piss of the Mrs owning a cat! LOL
1. Wife takes prized pipe while hubby is away at work.
2. Wife packs pipe with catnip.
3. Wife places pipe on the floor and calls Fluffy.
4. Fluffy in a wild rage starts wacking and chasing the pipe and chewing on it. Let’s also not forget he turns it now into his favorite scratch toy, with those nice claws.
Hubby comes home, greeted by his smiling wife, but realizes, there’s Fluffy on the floor going wild with his prized possession, high on catnip!
P.S. Dog owners don’t laugh, pissed off Mrs might make your prized possession into Fido’s favorite chew bone toy! LOL

Boomer and Chipotle( gray and white)
I found Chipotle temporarily living in a bush over a year ago when I was still doing patrol work. I was on my lunch break eating a burrito from Chipotle. Gave him a piece of chicken and he jumped in my cruiser and never left. Poor guy was skin and bones with tons of ear mites and a eye infection.
