Is that Alice Mo playing in the background on that “STILL not on the floor” picture? Does she enjoy playing even when kittens are around?
When the kittens play, Alice likes to watch, but she never joins in. Mostly she sits and glares with disapproval, and will swipe at the kittens if they get too close, but she certainly makes a point of being around when they play!
Have the boys recovered from their cat show experience?
It took them about a day to get back to normal – they were all a bit needier on Monday, but as time passed they relaxed back into their usual personalities.
So I’m curious how AJ and Creed made it known that they were not interested in being shown? Was it just that they got hissy? Or was it something more dramatic than that? Also, those cages for the show cats seemed awfully small if they had to be in them for the whole day….but maybe they were only in them for a brief period.
There was biting and swiping involved in AJ’s case – Susan got smacked several times. He’s a really good boy in his foster home and at the shelter, but I think all the activity was freaking him out.
Creed got bitey after a while, too, and there might have been some hissing. It’s a lot for a cat who hasn’t been through the whole show thing to put up with!
The cages in those pictures were the ring cages, so the cats were in them for only brief periods of time while they were waiting their turn with the judge. I canNOT believe I failed to get pictures of the enclosures the cats spent most of their time in – they were really nice, and some of them were beautifully decorated. And for the most part, the cats were being carried around and admired by everyone.
If you look in the background of this picture:
You’ll see the cages the cats spent most of their time in. And there were a LOT of these enclosures (which are bigger than they look) where the cats had beds and litter boxes and toys. It was fun to walk around and see the cats in their cages and enclosures. Most of the cats just took all the people in stride and weren’t stressed at all. Very neat!
What kind of cat is the one in the last photo? I have never seen one like that before.
That’s a Bengal! Gorgeous, isn’t he?
I love the compatibility chart, i spend hours analyzing it! Dunno if it’s a coincidence, but it seems your girls cats are way more anti-social than the boy cats. And poor Miz Poo, doesn’t like any of her roommates 😛
Oh, those girl cats have NO use for most of the other cats. They love Fred and I an awful lot, though. They’d probably ALL prefer to be only
Does Angelo still suck on his toes?
He does, but not for long – his big ol’ belly kind of gets in the way!
Last night, the Cheez Doodles went to Petsmart, and I brought Orlando (who was returned yesterday) home with me. He and Angelo will be occupying the foster room for a little while, at least until room opens up at Petsmart for them. Hopefully the weekend will be good to the Cheez Doodles, and I’ll be able to announce lots and lots of adoptions. And if Livia and Tricki could get themselves adopted, I’d be over the moon!
I have a ton of Cheez Doodles pics in the queue, so that’s who you’ll be seeing in next week’s posts.
The Cheez Doodles could not have been less scared when I put them into the cage at Petsmart – when I left, they were wandering around the cage, sniffing every inch of it, their tails straight up in the air. SO cute, those boys.
