Posts will be a bit light for a few days

What? I'll stand here if I want.
What? I’ll stand here if I want.

Hey, folks. I’m taking care of some non-blog business (nothing bad), so posts will likely be a bit light for a few days, and moderation will be a bit slow. But please keep sending tips!

In the meantime, here’s a cat. I posted this one before but, come on, this is an excellent cat who deserves some more publicity.

D’aww, it is an awesome cat. Mine went through a phase of playing in the empty bath though mostly it was to chase a razor round it at 0300 and frighten me awake.

I have to agree with you. That is one excellent cat!

My cat loves the tub (and the bathroom sink) also. He likes to examine the water as it flows into and out of the drains. He’s a scientist.

At first I misread the title and thought you meant the next few posts will be on lighter topics as a break from documenting some of the worst people on Earth. But you do need to take a break to get other stuff done.

Oh well. Maybe this thread can be used for that lighthearted stuff.

Like this thing I recently stumbled upon that made me feel so happy.

Funny — yet terrifying!

My boyfriend told me a similar story. He had a cat who loved to play with the float ball in the toilet tank. On account of his cat’s hobby, my boyfriend would leave the lid off the tank. One day my boyfriend was home alone — and the toilet flushed.

My boyfriend discovered the cat in the bathroom, looking pretty pleased with himself.

I am striving to do more every day as I recover from this stroke. Today I showered, dressed myself, and folded some laundry.

@ varalys

Chasing you round with a razor?!

Is your cat in a street gang or something?

ETA: @ Vicky P, wishing you a speedy and full recovery.

That’s a scary-looking yet still adorable feline!

@Victorious Parasol
The things we take for granted . . . until we can’t do them. What a challenging situation. Stay strong. All best wishes.

My little calico stood up like that a few days ago, trying to scope out my new bed (which is unusually high). She ended up falling over backwards after about ten seconds.

@Kat: If my toilet “sponteneously” flushed when I was nowhere near it I’d probably have heart failure. Actually I’m surprised my cat hasn’t tried to troll me like that before….

@Alan: Zoinks! Actually I haven’t been seeing much of him this past month or so, he could be leading a local cat gang. He’s a big, tough, lean old man who stares down dogs and humans alike. But he’ll always be my widdle kitten (I’m a bit Nanny Oggish regarding him in some respects).

Sad but has me watching fun and happy things, RIP Gene Wilder. Trying to decide on Wonka, Young Frankenstein or The Producers for today (yesterday was Blazing Saddles).

All the best, Vicky P. I wish you many satisfying small victories every day.

Off-topic:
Does anyone know what happened to katz? If there was any announcement or any drama I missed it. Her blog is offline, she’s not posting, she’s not around at all: she’s just gone. I hope she’s okay.

Thank you, all. I’m trying every day.

My mind, you read it. Was just thinking about her. She blogged some stuff about damsels in distress a few days ago, and he seems to be tweeting regularly. Unless that’s a different katz. Regardless, I miss katz πŸ™

@Vicki
I believe in you. Best possible wishes!

I thought Katz might have just gotten sick of this place, but I’m concerned to hear her blog is down.

@Victorious Parasol, it’s great to hear about your progress. Wishing you the best during your recovery.

Dramatic apple cat, if you’ve never seen it:

Apparently the guy who made it actually does write movie music.

My current house is the second haunted house I’ve lived in; the shower goes on and off by itself.

I was wondering where Katz was too. Also NicolaLuna.

ARE posts going to be light? Are you SURE?

I mean, you say you’re going on break and then post fifty things the very next day. I don’t think you understand the meaning of “break” or “light” in this context.

Pepper loves all things water-related, but is freaked out by the toilet. Especially if I flush while she’s looking in the bowl.

I hope katz is ok. πŸ™

I don’t know if anyone remembers, but the half-starved ant covered Kimchi kitten is chubby, spoiled and expected to live a normal kitty life. Kimchi has been a dream to socialize, he loves people, and other cats. I am so proud of him for thriving.

Please ignore the unmade bed.

Kimchi is ridiculously beautiful and sweet looking.

<3 Victorious Parasol. Lots of love, and I'm glad you're recovering as well as you are. Thinking of you up here in the great white north!
