DARK AND LOVELY

I thought this was such a cool story...I just had to share it with you. I guess I can relate because when I was homeless and God sent me to Buddy's backyard, I fought every cat that tried to come in. Then when I became an indoor ( I have NO desire to go back outside) cat I would still get mad when other cats (any animal) came into our backyard. I would bash myself against the sliding glass door until mom or dad came to get me. Of course I was so freaked out I would attack them or Buddy or even Puss (and she is really tough...she never learned how to play without claws so when she fights she kicks ass) and I was in such a state I was dangerous. I ended up knocking out both of my canine teeth which is why I smile so funny. So when I saw this story I totally understood!! Oh and wouldn't you know he is a gorgeous Ginger!!!


From National GeographicJune 13, 2006-Perhaps not since the Cowardly Lion has an animal's appearance been so at odds with its attitude.On June 4 a black bear wandered into a West Milford, New Jersey, back yard, was confronted by a 15-pound (7-kilogram) tabby cat and fled up a neighbor's tree. Hissing at the base of the tree, Jack the clawless cat kept the bear at bay for about 15 minutes, then ran him up another tree after an attempted escape. Finally, Jack's owner, Donna Dickey, called the cat inside, and the timorous trespasser disappeared back into the woods."He doesn't want anybody in his yard," Dickey said of Jack in an interview with the Newark Star Ledger. Unlike cats, bears aren't typically territorial, roaming instead over vast areas that would be impossible to patrol for intruders. With a habitat that includes much of North America, black bears are seen fairly often in this region of New Jersey.Full-grown black bears weigh between 200 and 600 pounds (90 and 270 kilograms) and measure as much as 6 feet (1.8 meters) long. Their diets can include fruits, honey, insects, acorns and animals as big as moose calves-a fact apparently lost on Jack.-Ted Chamberlain

Hey all. I want to share with you the best cat invention of all time! I am not exagerrating when I tell you the "cat spa" is almost as good as getting scritches from your human. This thing can itch your chin, rub your sore pads, cleanse your pheromones, and stimulate your gums! I love, love, love it!
(This is not a paid endorsement)

I hope you are all doing well in kitty land. It's nice to be back.
