Don't even think it!

No, not mine, never again.
The Home now has a resident cat for the residents. That isn't him but close.
He is a year old, neutered and just out of the shelter.
You know how the experts tell you to look at a puppy's paws to see how big he'll grow? Man o' man if this cat was tawny I'd be thinking mountain lion. The paws are huge.
They had a drawing of names and he's stuck with "Jinks" whereas I looked at him and thought "Snowball" until he turned around and I realized how innapropriate that name was in a home of gentile ladies.
Good thing he was fixed, he'd have had to cart them around on wheels.
He's a friendly boy, all over me like a rash and purring. At the moment he's still locked in one room until his routine is established. And now I have a place for the kitty litter and umpteen dollars worth of cat food.
A visitor thought of calling him "Angel" because he was so pure white. Another name that bit the dust after we discussed it, considering how many residents have fallen off the twig lately.
I keep thinking about those paws.
Perhaps we should call him "Yeti"

Our white cat was Moby. He too was a BIG boy. Moved in on us and stayed 14 years.

River said...

With such big "lion" paws, his name should be Simba.
Remember the Simba cartoon from years ago?

Kimba the white lion!
Hope he settles in at the home and doesn't send off too many of them ;)

Dammit why didn't you ring and ask me to step into the breach.

I'm white, neutered, almost toilet trained and can chase balls of knitting wool, providing hours of entertainment.

He's handsome, isn't he?

We had a white cat once, and called her 'Pooka', which is apparently an old name for a fairy spirit which always appears in the form of a white animal.

The rabbit in 'Harvey' was a pooka. :)

EC, Moby was one of the names but it didn't quite fit him. It will be interesting to see how the residents take to him.

River, how I hated that cartoon show. It was all about dying in Africa, dreadful.

Jayne, there are a couple with Alzheimer's so I'm curious to see if they can relate to a cat.

Once you're in Sedgers, they'll never let you go and besides I've seen how much you eat, they couldn't afford you.

JahTeh said...

Now that was a blast from the past, JDE.
Do you remember a storybook called Pookie the flying rabbit? He was white with little blue rompers. I always loved Jimmie Stewart in Harvey. Gorgeous film.

Hi, eight oclock and I'm looking great.

Rolling butts here, about to go down for a packet of Port Royal. I've smoked most of my life. I'll have a fag in my gob right at the end. Latte feminist wowsers are always out to deny any pleasure the working classes have. Now they say we can't have a fag.

Get Fucked. Give up telling your "inferiors" how to live.
Get fucked, you worthless no-talent swarm of shitheads!!!


Nice cat.

JahTeh said...

Oh dear, Robbert, been chucked off another intellectual blog again?

Lad Litter said...

Magnificent looking animal, Jahteh. I always found our cats would ignore their names but come running if you called "Puss, Puss, Puss..."

R.H. said...

Well pardon me, I comment on only one blog aside from yours: Miss River.
She is NOT an intellectual, and indeed, would be grossly offended by the accusation.
I hope she sues you for it!*


*She sure could use the dough.

We had a white cat the girls called "Little Miss Piggy" for obvious reasons - Angel was not the best choice!

JahTeh said...

Lad, there is a scientific reason for that. Apparently p and s are pitched high enough for them to hear for miles.

Therese, saw the 'for sale' photos of the house, just lovely but as you say, it's time to have company besides the birds and snakes.

Helen said...

Nah Robbert, we're not out to deny pleasure to the working classes - just to you!

*evil laughter*
