I've got two. Scobie and BooBoo, the white cats.


Let's see Cherry! And Lucy and Mack! And Wilma, of course!
“And another thing. You don't have to "move on" either. Not until you're ready. People say, Oh, you should be grateful. They say, Oh, it's time for you to move on. I'm like, What are you, a cop with a nightstick? I'll move on when I'm done playing the blues on my harmonica, thank you very much.

Really, people will tell you all kinds of garbage. Don't believe it.

You don't have to move on until you're ready.”

Oh my god. It's the return of the cat thread.

I love my cat. A lot.

But no photos of her. She looks like a cat, for those curious. :P

I fear Wilma may be frightened by feline propinquity.
However I have alerted her (sadly now revealed to be a him, but brought up as a lady, of course) to the online interest.

She is currently enjoying some extra mature gouda.

You didn't check out the cere colour and texture before naming?

Kids, always remember when sexing sex budgies: Blue smooth ceres for boys and rough and brown for the ladies.

The darkness drops again; but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born,
and sets a food discussion site?

When wilma moved in she was rather young. The sexual characteristics have developed with age - but I still wouldn't call wilma butch - at least not to her face.

I understand - "Gavin and his secret intersex pets" as seen on channel 4.

Yum. As far as I'm concerned, pets can go under general food discussion. :)

Yes, I would not recommend smell, touch or taste when it comes to old cock selection. Opinions differ though. Adam 2/3/05

Actually, Cathy's cats are quite appealing in person. (Did I say "in person"??? :o )

I tried uploading some pictures but my dying computer at home couldn't cope and crashed :(

Anyway, I have Sausage and Piglet, 17 and 3 respectively, cats. Names acquired along the way rather than intentionally assigned. Great friends of mine, and they get on pretty well with each other as well.
