Weekend Cat Blogging #62

I have opted to host this weeks Week-end Cat Blogging. I love my kitties and have had a rough week of it by having to remove several feral animals from my property. On a good note -- by the end of next week I will have all my tame loveable babies altered and vaccinated. Earlier this year, someone shot and killed several of my pet kitties -- so in response I have made sure that the kittens we have opted to keep that were born to dumped/feral/stray females are all vaccinated and unable to continue having more kittens.

And Pause (well you have to pause to look at those paws!)
A little more information about this special baby --
As you can see she's an orange tabby --
supposedly they are only supposed to be boys... not girls.
And she has 7 toes on one front foot and 6 1/2 toes on the other.
The half is a knuckle without the nail.
When she curls her feet up like you see in the picture
she appears to be giving you two thumbs up! LOL

Carmel - we all know and love - is now spayed --
and have learned she's a rare "golden calico".

Post your permalinks in the comments section and I will tag you on Sunday afternoon in this post! To email me --- Be sure that you have my WCB permalink in your post so that others can find the rest of the WCB friends and finds! Thanks everyone for participating -- and I will gladly continue to host Weekend Cat Blogging until Clare returns to her normally scheduled blogging or asks another to be our host for this fun Weekend activity!

In case you were wondering -- I live on a very busy Farm Road in Texas -- and its country folks. Behind me is a hay field, next door is a small (6 goats) farm with a chicken pen, on the other side and just down the street -- sheep. In the other direction I know there are cows, horses, and pigs. So, we have a mixture of just about everything. The community school is just 2 blocks away. It's a prime dumping area.

Here are this weeks WCB'ing submissions! Enjoy.

Di from Di's Kitchen and Penny show off some acrobatic twists.

Sarah and Tiggey have a video of playing around in the cupboard. I do believe I can hear him purr too. LOL

FFM Ellen and kittens ask for help in naming the game these little fur balls play in the tub. Scamper over and check it out.

S'kat and the food give us the lowdown on sunshine... nothing better than a sunny window. Purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrty kitty.

Farm Girl Susan requests you stop by and check out the Big Cat Sanctuary and maybe even give a donation to keep this sanctuary up and running long enough for them to find homes for these beautiful animals. Susan also caught Patchy Cat doing something healthy! Can you do that? I know I can not!

Cin and Bella play in a bag for some furry fun.

D and Boots where searching for Tess! Where could she have gone? Find out soon.

Whaleshaman at Jellypizza gives us some insite to Taboo the winner of the Survivor Cat's Abode. That's one lucky kitty!

Cate at Sweetnicks let's us know how grateful she is for Fridays and shares a picture of Luke - her sweet tabby cat.

Willowtree at Once upon a Blog gives us insite to just how precarious a situation our feline friends can get themselves into. Tigger - the adventurer and one wild tree climbing feat!

Anne and Glinda - the kitten in a big kitty suit -- help support FarmGirl Susan in rounding up and requesting donations for a Big Cat Sanctuary.

Jasper and crew have a few things to show off.. A real live cat that loves the vaccuum! Honest vacuum power going on.

Upsie the cat and her Aunt Roxie enjoy a visit together. Though Upsie is not too impressed with her new duds.

Bonnie and Victor -- two tabby's had someone raid the cupboard -- is Bonnie guilty or innocent! You decide.

Jelly and her new found feline friend Mattie are making special arrangments! Yet, there is confusion -- maybe you can give some helpful suggestions. LOL

Aria and Max show off some "scrunch-ups" as only a cat can!

Rosa at Yummy-Yums shares a delightful pose of Fridolin waiting for someone to exit the bathroom. I do hope that the people pets in the house don't get tripped up... check it out.

The Paw Path Cat Blog invites us to read about Buddy -- a very special cat that left paw prints all over a community before going to heaven.

Rosie and Cheeto give welcome to a new feline friend, Silent Sally.

Riana disturbs her kitty's nap who thought nothing of snoozing on the guest bed whilst Riana was cleaning the room.

Tina and Sinda are a little persnickety about picture taking, all with style and grace.

Skeezix the Cat has a cute video for you to get some giggles. Go visit and see!

House of the (mostly) Black Cats had a birthday celebration! Go find out who and what had a purrrrfectly fun day!

Lisa at Champaingn-Taste lets us know that not all kitties are complete carnivores when Louis has a go at some fresh peaches. Yum! I love peaches, too.

BNA at PB and Purple Onions had intended to show off a pan of PURRRTY blueberries and caught something else in the camera eye too! Who'd it be? None other than Widget! But are you sure?

CatSynth and Luna join us as a late minute entry on Sunday -- you get to see Luna in an action pose! Enjoy!

More entries! These posted late Sunday after I went to work, and today -- Monday. Even the later entries have some fun loving kitties! Way cool- katches!

Boolicious catches the stray kitty meowing at her door to be fed. What a pretty face.

Romona and Mao give us a glimpse of some beautiful Gladiolas. I wonder if Mao supervised the arranging?

Lisa at Resturant Widow has some beautiful babies up for the asking! Check em out a her blog.

Okay, I will keep adding to this post as new submissions occur even after Sunday evening! Please keep up the great work everyone! I am really enjoying doing this WCB edition! Keep them coming in folks!

Hi Heather,
Thanks so much for hosting WCB! I wanted to let you know that I put up a very special post the other day about some big cats (and other exotic animals) that need our help. I've had a great response so far and hope that the WCBers will pick up and run with this and spread the word. I also just received an update--in today's Denver post the sanctuary directory was quoted as saying that if 100,000 people gave just $5, it would buy them an entire year to find homes for the animals.

This will make sense after reading my post. Thanks for your time and efforts!

You can count this as my WCB entry if you like. Not sure if I'll have a chance to put up a new cat pic or not. : )

P.S. Three huge cheers for you for taking control of your cat situation and for telling everyone to GET THEIR ANIMALS FIXED!!!!! : )

I don't know what gets into people who just "dump" cats - sorry you have to go through the hassle of taking them to a shelter - you have to keep your cats safe though.

Come visit Ms. Sinda at
She'll tell you all her troubles.

Thank you, Heather, for hosting WCB #62. It is clear that so many of us look forward to reading and see each other's cats. I think you did an excellent job this week and love your little notes. Hope Clare and Kiri are OK and can continue hosting, but any suggestions on when and how we will know when to begin for next weekend if Clare is not able to do the roundup? Please get back to us Clare. This was your terrific idea and we love having WCB go on.

P.S. The permalink version of your post has jumped to the bottom of the page because Sher's link in the comments section is too wide.
