Tabby Cat,Domestic Cat,Sir Tristan


For me, I was grooming myself yesterday and my tongue get stuck in my collar. Happily my bean was there to rescue me. She fix, but says she need to get me new collar, this one getting ratty. So now I guess I know what I getting for Kissy Mouse.

My tabby brofur will be hosting Weekend Cat Blogging next weekend at Tabbylicious - his first time hosting a blog carnival. This should be interesting!

Black Cat Friday

Gone Shopping!


Diamond Credit Card


Black Friday is the Friday after Thanksgiving in the United States, where it is the beginning of the traditional Christmas shopping season. Since Thanksgiving falls on the fourth Thursday in November in the United States, Black Friday may be as early as the 23rd and as late as the 29th of November.

Black Friday is not an official holiday, but many employees have the day off, which increases the number of potential shoppers. Retailers often decorate for the Christmas season weeks beforehand. Many retailers open very early (typically 5 am or even earlier) and offer doorbuster deals and loss leaders to draw people to their stores. Although Black Friday, as the first shopping day after Thanksgiving, has served as the unofficial beginning of the Christmas season at least since the start of the modern Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in 1924, the term "Black Friday" has been traced back only to the 1960s.

The earliest uses of "Black Friday" comes from a reference in Philadelphia and refer to the heavy traffic on that day, an implicit comparison to the extremely stressful and chaotic experience of Black Tuesday (the 1929 stock-market crash). The earliest known reference to "Black Friday" (in this sense), found by Bonnie Taylor-Blake of the American Dialect Society, refers to Black Friday 1965 and makes the Philadelphia origin explicit:

JANUARY 1966 -- "Black Friday" is the name which the Philadelphia Police Department has given to the Friday following Thanksgiving Day. It is not a term of endearment to them. "Black Friday" officially opens the Christmas shopping season in center city, and it usually brings massive traffic jams and over-crowded sidewalks as the downtown stores are mobbed from opening to closing.

The term Black Friday began to get wider exposure around 1975, as shown by two newspaper articles from November 29, 1975, both datelined Philadelphia. The first reference is in an article entitled "Army vs. Navy: A Dimming Splendor," in The New York Times:

Philadelphia police and bus drivers call it "Black Friday" - that day each year between Thanksgiving Day and the Army-Navy game. It is the busiest shopping and traffic day of the year in the Bicentennial City as the Christmas list is checked off and the Eastern college football season nears conclusion.

The derivation is also clear in an Associated Press article entitled "Folks on Buying Spree Despite Down Economy," which ran in the Titusville Herald on the same day:

Store aisles were jammed. Escalators were nonstop people. It was the first day of the Christmas shopping season and despite the economy, folks here went on a buying spree. ... "That's why the bus drivers and cab drivers call today 'Black Friday,'" a sales manager at Gimbels said as she watched a traffic cop trying to control a crowd of jaywalkers. "They think in terms of headaches it gives them."

More recently, merchants and the media have used it instead to refer to the beginning of the period in which retailers are in the black (i.e., turning a profit).

The news media frequently refer to Black Friday as the busiest retail shopping day of the year, but this is not always accurate. While it has been one of the busiest days in terms of customer traffic, in terms of actual sales volume, from 1993 through 2001 Black Friday was usually the fifth to tenth busiest day. In 2002 and 2004, however, Black Friday ranked second place, and in 2003 and 2005, Black Friday actually did reach first place. The busiest retail shopping day of the year in the United States (in terms of both sales and customer traffic) usually has been the Saturday before Christmas.

Trash the House party here tomorrow and Sunday!

T-13: Talking Turkey (Part II)

Before we get started on our feast, I just want to state that I have many, many things to be thankful for.

I am thankful I now have a home and do not have to live outside.
I am thankful I have many good foods to eat and to not have to hunt to feed myself.
I am thankful for a warm bed to curl up on during cold winter evenings.
I am thankful for an abundance of toys, and treats and catnip - all which add immensely to my quality of life.
I am thankful that so far, the recession has not affected us much and that I am safe and secure.
And I am thankful for my human bean, who take such very good care of me.

Today is my Purrthday and the fourth anniversary of coming to live in my new home with this bean. Had a I stayed wild and still had to live outside, it's doubtful I'd have lived these four years. I certainly would not have lived them as comfortable as I am living them now.

Because it is Thanksgiving, my Purrthday party has been moved to this weekend where we will have a SUPER TRASH THE HOUSE PARTY going on, as we also host a furry special edition of WEEKEND CAT BLOGGING!

In case you not get enough to eat today, just us Saturday and Sunday as we will have have Chick-hens, Hams, Turkey leftovers, Salmon, real live dead shrimps and some of those freeze dried fish things Misty send me from the lake by her house.

We also will have Temptations and Party Mix and all sorts of catnip confections, so you will not wish to miss out on all the great fun!

I also wish to say that I have more candidates for Turkey Talk this week than I have room for, so...If you did not make to this week's edition, and that includes my new woofie friends, you'll be with us next week for Snow in Southwest Florida! (Yes, we get it. It come in a truck. All 25 tons worth of it!)

So, now that we have all that out of the way, let us take a moment to thank Bast for the great noms we are about to enjoy and to offer a purrayer to our friends who are feeling under the weather and who could not be here to just us today for this bountiful meal...

Almost Wordless Wednesday

Domestic Cat,House Panther,Miss Diamond
Don't bug me


This was just brought to my attention and it is a very important hazard to note about your house!

It seems that many human now keep these paper shredder machines in their home office. These machines can be very dangerous to both woofies and kitties.

Cats like the warmth of the engine. They may curl up on top of the machine to sleep and their furs on their legs or tail could end up pulling the leg or the tail into the shredder.

Woofies have lost their tongues when they stick then in to a shredder that is turned to "auto".

Always keep paper shredders turned completely off when they are not in use or better yet, UNPLUG THEM!

Click HERE to read more about these shredding machines and a real life tale of terror involving one!

Cat Care tips on Tuesday

House Panther,Domestic Cat,Miss Diamond,Winter


A car's engine is quite warm and some cats, especially feral cats, may find this a comfortable place to rest in the bitter cold. Serious injury occurs when the car is started while a cat is sleeping on the engine. (Just ask Dante and he'll tell you all about it!) If ferals abound in your area, your human should honk the car's horn before starting it, to give any cat that might be sleeping there a chance to escape.

Some communities use salt in the winter to help prevent slips and falls caused by slippery icy. When you walk on salt covered surfaces, some of the particles can become trapped in the fur on your feet. Routine grooming can then result in ingestion of the salt and gastrointestinal upset. Salt can also be caustic to the pads of the feet. If you go outside, have your human clean your feet when ice and salt abound.

Last week I talked about easy to make shelters for feral cats. I forgot to add that if straw bedding is used, it will need to be periodically changed. The straw can become moldy creating a variety of skin and respiratory problems. If towels or a blanket is used, they should be collected and washed periodically.

For indoor cats, dry air heat can give even healthy cats dry skin and dull fur during winter.

Have your human check for dry, flaking skin by rubbing your fur the wrong way on your back, especially near the tail. This is where loose hair starts. Also check cheeks and ears for dry skin.

Diet can be a good combatant for dry skin and dull fur. Add a serving of canned food to a dry food regimen during the winter. If you really prefer dry food, have your human snip open a capsule of fish-oil concentrate, wheat-germ oil, or cod-liver oil, and sprinkle over dry food. You will like the taste! This should be done every other day. Oil from oil packed tuna may also be used. It can be drained from the can and stored in the refrigerator, where it will last up to a week!

Extra brushing and combing of your coat by your human also helps in maintaining a beautiful fur coat during the winter. And you will certainly want to look your best for the Holly Days!

Myth Monday - Thanksgiving

Myth Monday Header


The tradition of the a North American holiday is a form of harvest festival. The date and where abouts of the first Thanksgiving celebration is a topic of some contention. The earliest attested Thanksgiving celebration in an area of what would become the United States was held on September 8, 1565 in what is now St. Augustine, Fl.

Most Americans however, believe that the "first Thanksgiving" was held on Plymouth Plantation in 1621.

The United States version of Thanksgiving is held on the fourth Thursday of the month of October November. It is considered secular, or at least nonsectarian, and is not based on any specific religious canon or dogma. The American holiday instead has religious undertones related to the deliverance of the English settlers by Native Americans after brutal winter at Plymouth, Massachusetts.

The period from Thanksgiving Day to New Year's Day is often called the "holiday season" and most people celebrate by gathering at home with family or friends for a holiday feast.

In September of 1565, 600 Spanish settlers under the leadership of Pedro Menedez de Aviles landed at what is now St. Augustine, Florida, and immediately held a Mass of Thanksgiving for their safe delivery to the New World. The mass was then followed by a feast and a celebration. As the La Florida colony did become part of the United States, this then can be classified as the first Thanksgiving.

Explorer Don Juan de Onate ordered a rest and a mass in celebration of Thanksgiving on April 30, 1598 in what is now El Paso, Texas. It was not a harvest festival however and was held later than the one at the La Florida colony.

38 English settlers arrived at Berkeley Hundred on the Northern bank of the James River near Herring Creek on December 4, 1619. The area was then known as "Charles Cittie", about 20 miles upstream of the current location of Jamestown, was the first permanent settlement of the Colony of Virginia, established on May 14, 1607.

The group's charter required that the day of the arrival be observed yearly as a "day of thanksgiving" to God. On that first day, Captain John Woodleaf held the service.

During the Indian Massacre of 1622, nine of the settlers of the Berkeley Hundred were killed, as well as about a third of the entire population of the Virginia Colony. Berkeley Hundred and other outlying locations were abandoned and the settlers withdrew to the more secure location of Jamestown.

Several years thereafter the site became known as Berkeley Plantation, and was long held as the traditional home of the Harrison family, on of the First Families of Virginia. In 1634 if became part of the first eight shires of Virginia, known as Charles City County, one of the oldest of in the United States. Berkeley Plantation continues to be site of the annual national Thanksgiving event.

The Plymouth celebration was held in 1621. They did not, however hold a true Thanksgiving until 1623, when it followed a drought, prayers for rain, and a subsequent rain shower. In the Plymouth tradition, a thanksgiving day was a church observance, rather than a feast day.

Various Thanksgiving celebrations were held at various times in the followed years and were general set aside as a day of prayer and fasting.

George Washington as the first president of the United States, created the first Thanksgiving Day designated by the government on October 3, 1789. He assigned Thursday the 26th of November to be devoted by the People as a day of Thanksgiving (with a lot of flowery language).

It was held irregularly in and around that time frame by successor administrations. It wasn't until 1941 that the U.S. Congress passed a bill requiring that Thanksgiving be observed annually on the fourth Thursday of November. Theodore Roosevelt signed the bill into law on December 26th of that year, setting up the current modern day observance.

U.S. tradition compares the holiday with a meal held in 1621 by the Wampanoag and the Puritans who settled in Plymouth, Massachusetts. This element continues in modern times with the Thanksgiving dinner, often featuring turkey, playing a large role in the celebration of Thanksgiving. Some of the details of the American Thanksgiving story are myths that developed in the 1890s and early 1900s as part of the effort to forge a common national identity in the aftermath of the Civil War and in the melting pot of new immigrants.

In the United States, certain kinds of food are traditionally served at Thanksgiving meals. First and foremost, baked or roasted turkey is usually the featured item on any Thanksgiving feast table (so much so that Thanksgiving is sometimes referred to as "Turkey Day"). Stuffing, mashed potatoes with gravy, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, sweet corn, other fall vegetables, and pumpkin pie are commonly associated with Thanksgiving dinner. All of these primary dishes are actually native to the Americas or were introduced as a new food source to the Europeans when they arrived.

What's your Woofie eatin'?

Pirate,Wolf,Dog Lacking opposible thumbs, woofies like to use their mouth the way humans use their hands, to pick up and carry things. Because of this woofies are more prone to ingesting things they shouldn't.

Do you know the number one thing that dogs eat that they shouldn't? Nope, It's not homework!

According to Petsugar.com, the items woofies consume most often, and shouldn't are as follows:

10. Sticks

Woofies love to chase sticks, but they can splinter and become lodged in a woofie's throat. Consider having your woofie fetch a frisbee instead.

9. Hair Ties

Stray Hair ties can turn into play toys for both dogs and cats, although dogs more likely in ingest them. This could get hung up in the digestive system and could result in surgery or even death.

8. Bones

Letting your woofie chew on a beef bone is great for his teeths, but make sure the bone is hard and that it is large enough that he can't swallow it. Take any pieces that might splinter off away from the woofie.

Never give your woofie cooked bones for bones from poultry or fish as these are softer and could splinter and get lodged in your woofie's throat. (Ditto for us cats too!)

7. Corn Cobs

Sometime woofies will think you've missed a spot on your corn cob, but these can present a choking hazard to the woofie, cooked or not.

6. Chew Toys

Most woofies have chew toys. Make sure they are in good shape and dispose of any loose or small parts. If the toy is in bad shape, throw it out and buy the woofie a new one.

5. Balls

Make sure that any balls your woofie is playing with can't fit down your woofie's throat. Then you won't have to worry it will get lodged there.

4. Rocks

Rocks are round, like balls, but are smaller and can be easily swallowed, creating a choking hazard. Never teach your woofie to chase rocks, and discourage this behavior if he should pursue it.

3. Pantyhose

Woofies, like cats, like things with their owners smell on them. However, unlike cats, woofies will chew on them as well. These can get lodged in your woofie's mouth or can get wadded up in his throat or stomach choke him or make him ill.

2. Underwear

The same as number 3, but undies seem to be more popular.

1. Socks

Most people use old socks as tug of war toys with their woofies. This is not a good idea. For one thing, the woofie can't distinguish between new socks and old socks and might chew up your new argyles. Additionally socks can become ingested and will require surgery to remove.

Instead, get a nice tough rope tug of war toy that can be found virtually every pet care center.

Formerly Feral Friday: 8 things me-me

Pearl have tagged me for the 8-things me-me.

The rules are:

- Each furson starts with eight random fact/habits about themselves.

- Fursons who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.

- At the end of your post, you need to choose eight fursons to get tagged and list their names.

- Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged and to read your blog.

1. I am very messy eater. Probably not want to take me out to nice restaurant for dinner.

Miss Diamond


2. I am very fussy eater for a former feral. I only like stinky goodness with gravy. I usually eat all the gravy, but only some of the foods. The Tabby Introooder then eats the rest. I do not like beef so I will not eat it. Have you ever seen a cat kill a cow? Well then...

3. Since I was feral born and did not get much human interaction as a kitten, I do not like to be held. I will tolerate petting but I do not snuggle. If I am tired of humans, I will bite at them, but not hard enough to break skin.

4. I like to sit on the bean and do happy feets. (Loreta-bean call his "making biscuits".) I like to be petted while do this. I drool all over while I am doing this.

5. Next week I will have lived with this bean for four years. I will be happy to stay with her for next four and the four after that and the four after that if I live that long. She take very good care of me.

6. My little tent is my safe zone. Then I get tired and do not wish to be bothered, I retire to my little tent. Sometimes I will spend hours and hours and hours in my little tent. The Tabby Introoooder went in my little tent the other day and I had to attack him with all my claws extended. He may not go there.

My Little Tent


7. Everything that I want is mine. Just because I do not want it does not make it yours. I may want it later. This goes for my foods, but I can't get the Tabby Introooooder to understand that.

8. I prefer to go to bathroom outside. I would rather not use litter box if I do not have to. As a result, before Tabby Introoooooder came, bean might go for weeks, not have to clean litter box cause I not use it. Now it must get clean every day, Tabby Introooooooder make mess.

So, now I would like to tag some of my new friends as I wish to know more about them. So...

I wish to tag Rocky of The Hudson Furkids,
Eduardo the Snuggle Puggle,
Khyras the Cyberian Huskey,
Thunder and the Ops Pack at The Chronicle of woos,
The crew at The Misadventures of Me,
And since it coming up to Turkey day, Batman and the Turkey Cats.

That is six, but as some are multi-furson blogs, I will count it as eight. Of course, if anyone else wish to play, please feel free to join in.
