I'm Sorry

Yes, once again, since I lack the time to blog I'm simply hoping that throwing up yet another picture of my adorable cat will do. I feel horrible about not posting/commenting more. This is one of the most important times in the history of Israel and rather than doing my people proud, I'm working on some lame project cause I need the income. But know my heart is with all of you in Israel right now.

You're so right, muse! Thanks! Anyone who wants to put up a link to an important post they've done, please do so. :) And I'll keep that in mind for my next time crunch. Thanks.

that cat looks way too philosophical for its own good:-)

Is he staring at a bird? My cats get that same look when they are watching my birds. Almost like they are thinking, "If I could just get rid of the cage, those birds will be mine!".

Yesterday, it was time for my annual physical. My doctor had some time to spare, and we had a long conversation about his two cats, Bob and Colby, whom he refers to as "my boys."

Here's this big, hulking medical specialist, the very prominent head of a hospital department, and my doc and I are trading cat pictures and cat stories!

My theory is that cat stories are stress relievers. I know that my doc is also concerned about what's happening in Israel right now, but we stayed away from stressful topics so as not to cause a rise in my blood pressure. And this time, my blood pressure was better.

Muse is right, of course. Throwing up links is a good way to cope with one's blog in a schedule crunch.

I'm taking you up on your invitation, and here are a few links to explore:

Great. now the spammers are getting registered.

LOL rachy.

Seawitch, actually she's looking up at my tree that she's dying to climb but I won't let her.

AOW, glad your blood pressure is in good shape. And your doctor, since he's a cat person, sounds like a good guy. :) And thanks for the links! They're great ones as is the one muse gave us!

Well, I don't know about my Cat being very good at lowering my blood pressure. Sometimes, I guess, but today he knocked over a flower vase, and he did it on purpose. He's just lucky I can't catch him!

Esther, I don't think you have to apologize. After watching the news from Israel today, I think it would almost be too painful to write about it. Sometimes what we need is one of those cute cat photos just to relieve the tension.

You shouldn't. You do what you have to do. As to Gaza, I have posted so little on it myself. I find it to be more heart breaking than I thought I would.

Cute cat picture.

here's a funny cat story.

my aunt and uncle have two cats. one (tony) is more outdoorsy than the other (simba). one day they let the cats out to wander around the yard in IL. simba comes back fast, and tony walks in later. after they brought tony in, the cat opened his mouth and a bird flew out. so my aunt, uncle, and 6 year old cousin are chasing the bird around the house to try to let him out. after some time passed, they finally managed to get the bird out, but i think they had to clean up a little.

I had a similar experience when my cat Honey, a red-point Siamese, caught a very small field mouse and swallowed it whole. In a few seconds, she urry-urped it up, and the damn thing ran across the floor. Honey refused to pursue it, and it took my husband and me some time to capture the tiny rodent and put it outside.

Honey never hunted again, and she lived 18 more years.

since you pointed out that your cat swallowed the mouse whole, i now have a question for you or any other cat owner- do cats always do that or do they know how to kill its prey before eating? i am now curious.

Oh no, Tom. That sucks. But it makes a great story. ;)

Thanks Rory and Gindy.

DM and AOW....all I can say is thank goodness my cats have never caught anything live. They're mostly indoor cats. I only let them out briefly to eat a bit of grass (this one) or roll on bricks or concrete (which the other one loves). Or they can go out in their little pens. But they don 't get any kind of freedom to roam and kill. I don't need any presents like the ones you guys get.

Very contemplative pose. Don't apologize. I love to cat blog, especially on Fridays.
