If you don’t have a cat handy, you could build your own at home (but it’ll cost ya!)…

I need more toaster cat.
Like how Lou is marking that oat grass: “Mine! This is all mine!”
PS: I want to see more Tic Tac Toe with Kitty.
Awww, thanks! Lou is love ❤️
I had to build our kitty Charlotte a pillow fort on the couch in my home office so she would let me get some work done. Silly kitty. ?
@Mnemosyne: Why else are you home?
I am very bad at working from home, because I am very good at lying about my place, and not at all being productive
Edit: When will my employer notice?
Who doesn’t? Waves hand in air like Arnold Horshack.
(Aim brickbats and wear-dated vegetables at the torso, please.)
Dog story okay?
Cats vs Baby

Shhhh! Quiet please. There’s a 12 year old boy earnestly reading his book report. I’m not sure why Sully from Monsters Inc and a … Realtor? are there. All the more reason to listen in.
Poor Keaton has been a little anxious because we’ve thrown off his routine, but he went into his den for a good long nap this morning, so I’m hoping that he’s finally starting to adjust to the new normal.
And then there’s this.
@trollhattan: I think I had Toaster Cat on auto-repeat and we watched it about 20 times in a row. Never got old. : )
@Slim from MA:
Haven’t seen that wild looking hound at the top of a post for a while. I like the look of urgency on his face, like he wants to tell us something.
oh, big old AWWW…!
That lego cat living room only has two more cats than our house. Imagine them animated. Spouse right now has three of them sitting on him and a fourth thinking about also climbing aboard. Cat five is upstairs asleep on the bed with me.
Exactly. Toaster cat has a cumulative effect that rewards multiple viewings. Very similar to the little dog-leaping cats GIF of a couple months back.
Cats have so much downtime you need a few just to cover any gaps. A strategic cat surplus.
The Lego cats link is broke☹️ My grandson loves Legos AND cats…
From our inapt email subject lines department, sent from a college track and field recruitment company:
“Coronavirus recruiting update”
For some reason they’re having a hard time filling their fall recruit targets.
We have a toaster cat. Our poor Mason just FREAKED OUT and jumped away from the toaster and off the counter a few years ago. Hilarity ensued, etc. Turns out we blew it by not getting it on video – Mason coulda been famous. He coulda been somebody.
Nigel the Parrot has a story to tell, both in the King’s English as well as in Spanish!
The African grey parrot spoke with a British accent when it disappeared from a southern California home four years ago. But Nigel spoke Spanish when he was found and returned to Darren Chick of Torrance last week.
Newbie gets a foster cat thread
Someday I might surprise my cats with a room full of Lego cats. Blind one wouldn’t notice except for the new impediments to his travels, but the others might be outraged. Some hissing, and EVERYONE will be spraying.Something to look forward to. So there you guys who wake me at 3 a.m. to be fed.
This morning, early, rottmix climbed into my bed. Husband had gotten up and gone to the bathroom, and rottmix was alone in the hall with a tuxedo cat! So she climbed into bed with me. When husband emerged and went downstairs for coffee the rottmix followed him.
Tuxedo jumped into bed with me, then sniffed the bed disdainfully. (This bed smells of rottweiler.)
Of course it does, you idiot cat. Quit tormenting the dog and she will stay out of our bed.
Lou is a rather graceful little salad eater.
He relishes his snack.
@Elizabelle: Yes he does look graceful. My tuxedo hauls the wheatgrass around on the counter.
@Elizabelle: Lou has a lot of joie de vivre.
@WereBear: I love to see it. Appealing little kitteh.
Was trying to get a peek out your window, whether you had snow on the ground or not.
@Elizabelle: we sure do now!
@Sab: Lou has much of the effortless charm of his namesake.
@WereBear: You do not even want to hear about the wild violets in my tiny, tiny lawn.
@HumboldtBlue: I might pay money to hear a parrot hum the first few bars of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.
Ingredients for challah loaf in the super duper bread machine. Thought to mix it up a bit this time and threw in a couple of pinches of saffron*. Cottage gonna smell really good over the next few hours.
*Yes, it’s wildly pricey. Keep it in the larder and use it sparingly on extra-special occasions, which this isn’t, but haven’t had a reason to use for a lo-o-o-ong time, so splurged just this once.
@Elizabelle: nay I love violets
Social distancing, kitteh style
Also too social distancing antidote
My caption also made it to the front page of ICHC/lolcats this weekend.
@WereBear: I had violet ice cream in Montpelier, France. It was to die for. I have been looking for edible violet goodies ever since. There is even a violet liqueur.
@NotMax: if it’s scenting the whole cottage that is getting it twice.
@WereBear: They are a favorite of mine too, because they are so fleeting.
These are wild volunteers. They are riotous this year.
It’s a small cottage, about a size suitable as the setting for Snow White Skypes With the Seven Dwarfs.
Can you imagine how fun that would be?
Oops, wrong thread.
@Barbara: There are several violet liqueurs, including Creme Yvette & Parfait Amour, different but all delicious.
@Elizabelle: When I was young, I used to pick violets for my mom in the woods behind our house. I love their scent.
Also too, can’t mix a true Aviation without crème de violette.
Then there’s Violet Crumble candy, which contains no violet flavoring at all.
