Ringo, I stumbled on to him

Post by svaglic » September 20th 2017, 4:40pm

I took Homie in for his annual checkup and there was a huge cage that had two cats in it. One was a female that someone brought in to be put down because they were tired of her having babies. The other was a male that someone just brought in to be put down. The Vet fixed them and gave them their shots then put them out for adoption. I was told the male was about a year old and a total sweetheart and the female was a little bossy. I left and thought about my girl cat that was acting lonely and needy since I had Buddy put to sleep. Well, a couple of hours later, I called and told them I was on my way in to get the boy. When I got there the girl had been adopted out, so that was cool.... Their cage was ready for more adoptions.
Meet Ringo. I was told he is about a year old and sweet. They didn't tell me he is part monkey and will climb and swing on everything. I don't think he was an indoor cat before, he tries to get into my trash cans and had no idea what the TV was. I didn't want a kitten, but now I have an overgrown one. He is making himself at home and acts like he belongs, which he does belong. Here is my 12lb year old kitten Ringo, a wild sweetheart. He plays like his fur is on fire then crashes like in a clump in deep sleep. BTW, my girl cat doesn't totally hate him.

What a beautiful beast! Cats are such fickle predators and the only domesticated species that manages to hold their owners in contempt.

But I do love a cat. Always thrilling to watch them play and stalk about like their bigger cousins.

We have always had ours declawed and kept them inside.

Can't stand the allergies and a litter box though.

Guaranteed she will now have a wonderful life with you. Your heart is so big and you have so much love to give. If reincarnation is real, then heaven is to be a pet of a number of the Lords, for sure.

Goddamn, but Ringo's the spitting image of our old cat, Sydney, who was the sweetest cat on the face of the Earth, and lived a playful and active life to the age of 19.

Black cats are the fucking bomb!
I find tv watches to be like the guys who raise their truck you need a fricken ladder to get in. It’s a attempt to look cool... that’s all.

I am terrified of mice, I need a cat. Once, at a party (years ago when I was about 115lbs) a mouse ran across their living room floor. A college football player tried to block my exit out the door, I laid him out and took the screen door off one of its hinges. Another time when I saw a mouse, I screamed and froze, like Weekend at Bernie's.
When you were saying a person couldn't jump out of their skin the other day, I was certain you were wrong.

The litter box is bad now? I feed them a split can in the mornings and evenings and keep dry food out at all times. This cat must have gone without before because he eats like a pig, he won't stop eating and he $hits 5 times a day. Hopefully he settles down soon and realizes he will always eat and have food.

He may well settle down as he's still young. Our tabby O'Brian was nearly feral when he accepted us; that was six or seven years ago, and he still eats like a goddamn Ethiopian at Old Country Buffet. From what I understand, this is pretty common, since cats tend to eat whatever protein is available anyway, and strays tend to overdo it, since they never know when their next meal is coming from. Just be careful--O'Brian has Mrs. C wrapped around his very large paw, and he's gotten extremely fat with all the extra treats and so forth.

I'm going to put a pet door from the sunroom to the garage for the litterbox. It's that bad right now because of him.

Great news. May Ringo purr at your behest for many years to come.

Monkey boy has won the hostile takeover of the home.
I have never had a cat that interrupted my sleep like this. During the day he doesn't really meow, it's just a lot of errs, he errs constantly. At night he jumps on me and walks on my head, takes his paw and slaps the back of my head, gets in my face and meows loudly and bumps his face into mine. He is working as an agent for my insomnia. I get no uninterrupted sleep, I'm hanging by a thread.
During the day he knocks things off tables and shelves, he is good at breaking things then looks at me like what are ya gonna do about it. He follows me everywhere, clumsily walks the bathroom tub ledge while I'm taking a bath, sits in the sink looking up at me when I'm in the mirror etc....
What an energetic character. Oh, he has taken over Homies toys so homie has taken to chewing on cat toys.
This morning, after I got up because he was being impossible, he laid where I lay and had his head on my pillow. Don't think I let him relax, I jumped at the chance to mess up his sleep.
