Changing the subject slightly, you often read or hear reference to the Human Race. Why is it we never see any mention of the Feline Race?
Here you are, Pamela, the genuine article.
Here is an interesting cat picture. It is drawn using a set of eight coloured ball point pens. Brilliant. Last edited by John Richards
One more before I wear out my welcome. These pictures are drawn in biro by Samuel Silva, a Portuguese lawyer.
I have acquired a photo taken at the recent meeting of the Pamela Forbes Appreciation Society.
Spare a thought today for my three cattins (too big to be kittens). They are having their dangly bits chopped off today, otherwise known as neutering.
I must confess that I have never made a detailed study of cats nether regions, must I have to say that in my general dealings with the feline species, I have never noticed them to have dangly bits. I have always thought of pussy bits being rather compact and tidy. I would also point out that referring to the testicles being chopped off is a somewhat crude terminological inexactitude. We of a more sensitive nature would use the word enucleated. Please give my best wishes to your cattins, Rev.Roger, and I hope they are soon back to running your household.
Rumour has it that MP was last seen heading in that direction - the free choccy is all it took. He will search high and low just to get the chocolate - now that is chocaholic! All cattins spent a good night and are as boisterous as ever today.
Quoting: john daly [I]Quoting: Pamela Forbes [I] "Excuse me. I realise that this thread is all about cats but may a humble pooch pop his head in the door? I promise that I am clean. I've just had a shower". [Pup_in_shower. I think thats T.C., though not many Army types use a shower..... [/I] No way - the eyes are the wrong colour. Why is it anyway that most cats have eyes the same colour as mine? TC.
Reading your hilarious account of how to give a cat a pill brought back painful memories for me, Steve. I endured so many bites and scratches, that in the end I sought the help of an Animal Behaviour Specialist, and he provided the solution. I can now give a cat a pill without any trouble.
Quoting: John Richards To digress slightly, I remember when I was young a local vet was administering a pill to a horse through a 'blow-pipe' when the horse coughed and the vet swallowed the pill. Wasnt that the first year a man won the Derby without a horse? TC.
Since this thread has digressed slightly may I offer a little tale about a dog we saw on holiday. We stayed at a hotel in Hisaronu, Turkey where the main street is pedestrianised after six pm. One night we were taking our usual walkabout when we saw a man leading a dog up the centre of the street. Its favourite because you are more remote from the people trying to drag you into bars and restaurants. The dog was about terrier size and we thought at first that it was a very old one. It looked as if it could hardly move and each step appeared as if it were barely able to put one paw in front of another. It slowed right down, gradually, until it came to a halt. The owner pulled on the lead and the dog pulled back. He tugged again with no better result. The pooch stayed immobile and then sat down. He let the lead extend and walked a few feet away and tugged the lead again. The dog, seemingly grudgingly got to its feet and shuffled a step forward. It repeated this at intervals until it reached its master. Then it stood there in a world weary way. He reached into a bum-bag and brought out a biscuit or doggy treat and fed it to the dog. It began to chew and then slowly sat down and chomped away for a while. Then it looked up, sprang to its feet, the man turned and walked off with the dog looking like a frisky young pup trotting at the side of him. We both burst out laughing and I think Patricia hit the nail on the head when she said, That dogs an actor. No way was it going to move until it had had its treat. Had to agree and just wished Id said it. TC.
Its surprising how many dogs are actors, Terry. My friends dog enjoyed a successful acting career until it lost the use of its legs, then it became a drag-artiste! BOOM BOOM
Although dogs may be cleverer than cats, they dont have the cats ability to relax and chill out!
Came across this and just had to share it...... Here is Mark's story about this photo: "My sister-in law is from Oklahoma and has a slight accent. When she lived in the south she'd take her cats to the groomers to have what is called a Line Cut, which is when all of the fur hanging down below the cat's tummy is taken off (because it gets matted or snarled). "When she moved to Chicago, the fur on one of the cats got all tangled up during the move so she took it in for a line cut. She was quite surprised when she heard the price ($80) as it was twice as much as it was down south. She confirmed with the groomer that he understood what a line cut was and he said "yes, I know what a LION cut is." It seems her accent came out sounding like LION not LINE and this is how her cat was returned to her. "She cried for a week...but not as much as the cat. It was November in Chicago and the cat needed all the fur it had."

Quoting: Pamela Forbes "Please tell those two lazy madams to get off their sunbeds......... Training started half an hour ago!!!" For some strange reason the attachment, which was fine yesterday, seems to have gone wobbly overnight! Do we have poltergeists on the site? Anyway, here it is again......
