#Caturday update.

3 am. Big drama in the home last night. The new kitten Minion fell into the toilet and then landed, soaking wet, in a metal trashcan where she got stuck for a bit.
Yesterday, I left a half-eaten flan on my desk when I went to the door to sign for a package. Minion found that 1) flan is tasty, 2) the flan container is ever so slightly smaller than a kitten head.
I'm afraid that today is finally going to be the day for the *big* life lesson. Yes, there are cozy cat beds for every critter in the home, but THEY ALL BELONG TO PAISLEY.

Using hashtags and trending words - How not to make a hash of it on twitter - a thread.

#Stopbrexit #Stopthecoup #FBPE #FinalSay #PeoplesVote

Sadly I see too many people saying that they don't see the point of #hashtag ging - or that it is silly - or doesn't help....

So bear with me here...

#StopBrexit #StopTheCoup #LiarJohnson #DeathByBrexit

This couldn't be further from the truth, using tags well, in any situation on twitter, helps you reach further and link up with other people


Even people in other countries

Sometimes one wakes up on a #Caturday morning and finds that #TrumpFearsYang is trending.

cc: @ZellaQuixote
@ZellaQuixote We downloaded all tweets containing #TrumpFearsYang. Although the hashtag was first introduced on August 12th, it didn't start gaining traction until last night. Very little of the traffic looks automated, although some familiar "realtor" bots put in a guest appearance.

So It's #Caturday 🐱 & I have a story. 📌
As many of you know, I ran a small no-kill cat shelter for about 20yrs. It was just me, The Wife, two close friends & a bunch of volunteers. This was parallel to all of us having full-time employment, so it was always a labor of love.
We rescued, rehabbed, spayed/neutered & placed well over 1k cats/kittens over that time. It was a mitzvah for the cats & the community in North Philly where we live. There were many stories over the years. It was great work we did. We closed after I was paralyzed 3yrs ago.
So one thing we did was place cats with older and/or #disabled people who needed pets. One person we placed cats with was M, a woman on the #autism spectrum who is also hard of hearing. She came to us through our vet. M needed a service cat to help her navigate her anxiety.

Hi everyone. Meet Minion. (Mignon when she's cute.) #Caturday #CatsOfTwitter
Mignon is 13 weeks old, was adopted from Last Chance Animal Rescue and has a purr the size of Texas. I've never had a tortoise shell kitty before and she is really quite beautiful. She is a mix of blueish grey and peach.
She's pretty confidential for a baby. Usually, a new addition to the family, although quarantined for the first few days, hides so well that you start to get paranoid that she somehow managed to escape even though you haven't opened any doors or windows since last seeing her.

I saw this photo of a cat standing awkwardly, so I did a few edits.

1. The luck of darkness

Black cats know that the best of all things come from in dark. Only in shadow & quiet, in stillness & depth, in the smooth gentle hum of the dark can the most precious secrets grow & blossom into truth. Black cats bring you that dark to plant your heart
2. The luck of ashes

Black cats know that fire can captivate but it can also burn. Beauty that bright is always hungry, & cares not what it consumes. Black cats bring the whisper of the after, the sated embers, the promise that the warmth of the world isn't always ravening

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.
Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH

So yesterday- #Caturday - I let Penelope out for an outside session. Figured I’d let her have a few hours. When I went to bring her in, at dusk, she was happily chasing lightning bugs. So I let it go until full dark.

Then I couldn’t find her. She didn’t come when I called.
This morning, dawn-ish, she still didn’t come. I went outside around 9 and found her nestled in the soft side grass, looking like she had no clue where she was. Picked her up - she didn’t glee, but she struggled.
But then, once I got her in, she ran straight to chow at the food dish, collapsed in loud purrs and writhing purr-stretches, then jumped in my lap (only 3rd lap ever, 2nd if you don’t count the tamale-thwarted one.)

This is the face of a very naughty kitty who is not at all sorry. #Caturday
OK. The 10-minute bad kitty storm has passed and now she's just being cute.
This, by the way, is what earned the offending beast a "bad kitty" lecture.

Thread: Had to explain to someone why neutering a cat before they breed is ethical and outweighs the other possible end result of letting them repeatedly breed, then watching authorities horrifically poison all with strychnine. 🙈 and people wonder why I prefer animals.
I’m lucky. Where I live, thanks to a few hard workers, the cat population is pretty much controlled. But that’s thanks to hard work and effort of people that care. It doesn’t just happen. Others take that for granted.
Red Sea resorts like Hurghada, Sharm and Dahab are over run with cats and there’s consistent poisoning. There’s no change. It’s horrific to watch. It’s dangerous to humans and it’s so unnecessary. El Gouna is a humane, ethical city and long may that continue.

Merlin - a thread
Adopted Merlin from the humane society when he was a few weeks old. He’s a rare Munchkin and Persian mix that is mostly blind. He’s water bottle height (fun size)
He’s very picky when it comes to food. Doesn’t like fish or chicken. He likes watermelon tho and will let me know he’s hungry by chirping

This is a very sad #Caturday for our family. Our furbaby, Buddy is crossing the Rainbow Bridge. Buddy was a very chill cat. She got along with everyone.
We adopted her when she was 6 months old from a shelter. We had moved into a new (for us) house from an apartment and wanted...
...two kittens. So they took us to the "kitten room" while explaining that adoption was an involved process and might take several days.
It was January and the youngest available was about 3 momths old. The room was kitty paradise, bright with windows with cat sills and young...
...cats and older kittens were playing with toys and climbing cat trees. We almost felt guilty. We only had a scratching post at home, leftover from the Tonk I had rescued who had passed the year before.
My daughter was only just 3, & my son 8, so the volunteer was eyeing them...

I know it's #Caturday, but I need some help finding a name for this fluppy.

She's a 9 week old heterochromic Aussiedoodle who really likes playing with zippers.
she also has white paws, but a past tragic incident with a pet named Boots makes variations solely based on that theme less desirable than other options.
she also hoards toys in her crate and enjoys licking her but as an aperitif.

her mother also may be confusing her about her gender identity, by continually calling her a boy.

This is the second time I've posted this particular tweet. The results were very different the first time - it received 26 replies in a very short span of time, none of which are visible. Best guess is that (possibly automated?) protected accounts reacted to the hashtag.

I have a little #Caturday/#ClearTheShelters story for you that I hope you'll share.

The Wife just brought our newest family members home.

Maggie (black) and Iris (Siamese). Two beautiful, elderly cats.

Here they are in their former home.
Iris is 14. Maggie is 12. Their original person was forced to enter a nursing home last week.

She has dementia and it was no longer safe for her or the cats for her to live alone.

It's a very sad story.
Not only has she had to leave her home, but also her cat friends of well over a decade. So sad.

All involved have been traumatized.

As you know, we previously had a small no kill shelter. A friend asked if we could place these elderly cats.
