Goodbye, Sadie

Sadly, we must report Sadie - one of the "cats who came with the house" - passed away Friday.

My lovely wife called Sadie the "optimisti-cat" because she had a sunny personality and always seemed happy.

Here she is trying out as spokescat for "Ak-Mak: the Cracker So Good Cats Ask For It By Name!"

We'll miss Sadie, but knows she's happy chasing mice with Nicki and Cleo in the Great Meadow in the Sky!

Fiona in a Cube

I got these nylon cubes at Walgreen's for $2.99. Fiona, especially, loves it!

Nicki, 1990-2007

We had a memorial for Nicki yesterday, who passed away in July. My lovely wife sang a couple of songs and everyone got something in their eye. Then came the food - little tuna sandwiches and a Chinese chicken salad, because Nicki liked tuna and chicken (what he really liked was sardines and jack mackarel, but we had to draw the line somewhere!).

Here's some pictures of Nicki, who was a very good pussycat.

Fiona in a Very Tiny Basket

Not sure what brought this on:

Then, she decided to go on the attack!

Rabbits at the Shelter

There are now three rabbits at our local shelter. First, there's Humphrey:

He's a very big bunny! He's a little grumpy, but he loves being petted and having his ears scratched.

Here's Flopper:

She's a cute little bunny who loves to sit in people's laps.

The newest addition is S'more:

Not much is known about her, though she seems to like getting under things.

All three rabbits were found out in the open - another reason rabbits should be indoor pets!

Saturday at the Shelter

A few cute cats from the local shelter...

These two are devoted sisters, and very playful. They finally got names! Originally, some of the "kid" volunteers named them "Dip" and "Stick", but that wasn't too popular with the "adults." They look like a Molly and Mary - and so they are!

Here's Kyrra sleeping in a pile of blankets and toys in the "play room".

Someone took her in there with a couple of other cats and forgot to take her out. Later, everyone was frantic because they couldn't find her. She was chilling out the whole time!

A Couple More Shelter Pics

Here's a very cute cat - Missy:

She's part siamese and part something else - I'm guessing calico. Apparently, she's very shy, but she seems pretty friendly.

And here's another shot of the two cutest kittens on the face of the earth!

They don't have names yet, so I'm thinking of either Charlotte and Emily or Molly and Sarah...

Saturday at the Shelter

Here are some of the occupants of the local Humane Society shelter (cat division)...

These two are sisters, and they are so cute! They don't have names yet, so that will be my next project...

This is Emma - she actually lives at the shelter.

Sam says "Let me out of here!"

This cute little cat has been given the nickname "Clueless," but I'm changing it to "Sabrina." She's rather high-strung and was socialized poorly by one of the other volunteers, but she's really sweet and would make someone with no children a great pet. So if you're in the Bay Area and looking for a cat...!!!

And if you can put a couple of coins in their cup, all the above residents would greatly appreciate it!

Moon and Rex

Moon decided she wanted to hang out in Rex's cage today:

Meanwhile, Rex is hanging out in his "hole away from hole":

Cute Cats (and Bunnies, Too)!

Here are a few shots of some of the residents at the local Humane Society...

Two little friends!

"Take me home!"

"We wasn't doin' nothin'!!!"

"Did I hear a food bag opening?"

This cat looks like a young Oski!


This guy's really big! I brought him some mint from our backyard...

They're all available for adoption at the Benicia-Vallejo Humane Society. If you can't adopt one, maybe you can drop them a couple bucks. They're a no-kill shelter, so they could use it! (They've also got plenty of dogs, some guinea pigs, and a tarantula!)
