    Happy 'gotcha' day to my sweet Juniper McCready.  Lucky to have you.

    I think pets are among our saving graces these days.

    Hiya, Juniper!  I love the leash action.

    I wonder if Juniper and Lulu (our cat) are related somehow.  Lulu has a purple collar too!

    Lulu is so pretty ... and so very elegant.  (Juniper is a bit of a lovable clutz).
    So glad to have these fur children to keep us company during these crazy times.

    I may have run out of things to watch on TV, but Lulu has not.

    Too many others might be doing it.  Maybe for Comicon I will though!

    So we have 3 cats.  Newest edition, Darkstart Twinkle toes as she is aptly named for her extra toes and being a polydactyl, was a problem kitten and had been in 3 other homes before ours.  Well she has come around for the good and is very happy in our home.

    She was very skittish when she first arrived, always hiding.  She now seeks belly rubs and petting when she wants it.

    Something else she has started doing is coming to greet me when I am out of the shower.  Why?  No idea but that is "our time" in the morning.  

    She greets me at the door after i open it and comes right in chatty and wanting some rubs.  I think she knows that she gets fed after i'm done in the shower but I prefer to think that she wants to say hello, lol.

    I wondered if she got this behavior from watching Zoe Lovelight, one of our older cats.  In the morning when I sit in my chair she will come running from wherever she is at to get some pets as I put my socks and shoes on.

    Zapa, AKA Captain beepop, aka Captain cuddles, gets his "me" time when I am going to bed.  When the covers are on me he jumps up and wrests himself upon my chest and purrrrrs away.

    Creatures of habit I tell ya!

    Any other "me time" rituals you have with your cats?

    My cat, Buford, of 13 years (found as an adult stray) took his last ride yesterday. I must admit, if was FAR tougher than I ever imagined it would be. Generally, I am able to deal with that sort of thing really well. He was such a good cat and a terrific friend.

    Boo! Really big BOOO!!!

    I’m so sorry to hear that.  It sounds like Buford is a great friend.

    I'm so sorry about Buford (great name, by the way).

    tempo - Beans, one of our two, goes into the bathroom when my husband showers.  If the door is shut, she'll scratch at it until she's appeased.  She just wants to watch him (and she's fixated by water).

    She also follows me to bed, sniffs my face for a few, then sleeps above my head.

    Thanks, gang! I always fancied myself more of a dog person, so I was a bit shocked at the effect it had on me. 

    Okay, back to the good fun cat stuff!

    :disappointed: I'm sorry for your loss.
    Mine just turned 13. I've had her for 12 years. She's still relatively the same as I got her. Still pretty playful, although she may have lost a step or two. Also relatively healthy (minus the diabetes she has)

    Oh no so sorry to hear that! It's never easy losing our little furry friends, especially at a time like this. I lost my Sashi cat this past summer and Gizzymo last month. It sucks. Sorry Chris, that truly is a big Boooooo!

    Sorry to hear that, man! I am sure you gave Buford the best life and he did the same for you. Nothing can take away those times!

    Thanks, lady and gents. Ultimately, he was a rescue and he got to enjoy many years he otherwise may not have got to enjoy. In turn, his passing will likely lead to the adoption of another kitten or puppy, so there is that to be said. I'm okay now. A solid 40 hours of being a mopey baby, but I'm all good now.  ;)

    Dave, yours has a great cat dad to help her with the diagnosis. Thanks for the kind words.

    Haunting, what a tough year! I'm sorry to learn about BOTH losses. That's just brutal. 

    Dyer, thanks bud. He was my Cubs (and Notre Dame, until I would scream at the tv) watching buddy.
