Give a cat a box or basket big enough to get into, and they’ll also keep themselves entertained for hours.

“Give a cat a box or basket big enough to get into, and they’ll also keep themselves entertained for hours.”

Not my cat. But, then, she’s got acres and acres of woods. She alone has wiped out the local shrew population. She brought me enough I could have had a coat of many shrews. Now, they can either make themselves invisible or they’re very, very fast. They’ve adapted or died out. Not sure which.

My wife has five, and we live out in the country somewhat. We have things like coyotes that look at cats like they’re a Scooby Snack. You don’t see cats running loose around here, and they were raised as houserats to begin with. My wife actually bought body harnesses and a leash for when they want to explore the property, and damned if she didn’t get them leash trained, too. It’s all good, as long as the litter boxes are kept clean.

We had coyotes. Then my neighbor, who my friends call “Road-kill lady,” discovered they made terrific chili. Haven’t seen one in a long time. I don’t let my kitty out after dark anymore as she’s 15.

My prefers something that is much too small for them. My smallest cat now loves to ‘fit’ in to a little 6 x 6” box. They are kind of like a fat lady trying to fit into teeny jeans. Except they look so much cuter!

Is there a Ping list? Or would I be excluded because of my username?

My aunt’s cat, Cat Ballou, was a shrew-eatin’ son of a gun. I can’t imagine they taste very good, but to each his own, I guess. My aunt went to a veterans home, so her daughter has him now. I don’t know if there are shrews where she lives.

Ha! Well, the cat would be getting old now and may be deceased.

What I meant is that flora and fauna can be different in Montana, depending if its east of west of the divide. No tamarack trees east of the divide. I was told the same about antelope, but I forget if it was east or west. Knapweed isn’t the big deal in the east it is in the west.

Old cats never die. They just smell that way.

Thank you for the ping and post.

I subscribe to that channel, so I saw the YouTube vid earlier today.

They’re really cute.

Not mine. She'll start to chew on the edge of the bag then go crawl into her little bed and nap.......

I don't know what my cat's history is but she doesn't even know how to play.........She has a couple of cat toys I gave her but they're only put to use when I'm not around. She's strange.......

Another reason why I love dogs. You can read them a mile away. Cats? One minute you’re petting them, they purring like an outboard motor, then the second you walk away, they’ve got their teeth sunk into your Achilles tendon.......

Thanks. And I love cats. I have 5, which is way more than my quota. But two are outside feral that I couldn’t turn away...

Same problem for my four cats. Three were raised in the house and dont know there is an outside. The fourth loves to go outside and will dart out any chance he gets. The funniest thing in the world is to see my hubby walking his cat on a leash.

In addition to coyotes and wildcats, we have an owl with an 8 foot wingspan and golden eagles nesting in the bluff just behind our house. Any cat outside unattended learns to fly in a real big hurry....

Yeah, we have three that are from the same litter and were born outside, and were never allowed into the house until a tragic circumstance (bolt of lightning) took our dogs - and home - from us. They were brought indoors while still small, so their recollection of the outside world wasn’t completely imprinted on them. However, the mother was an outdoor cat, as was her mother, in turn, so we now have five from three direct generations living indoors with us. One - who we call Runt-Runt, but our grandson originally (and aptly) named ‘Tater Tot’ - stopped growing at about 16 weeks of age, so she looks like a stuffed Hallmark Card store holiday gift. If she were any smaller, she’d look right at home in a curio cabinet - a true feline elf. We have various raptors around here that could carry off a cat with ease, not to mention the turkey vultures who dine on the leftovers (and generally view automobiles as an annoyance, not a threat). Crows are viewed as cockroaches in the avian food chain around here. It’s always best to keep your domesticated companions well-sheltered in environments such as ours. My wife has one male tabby whom I’ve bonded to in the last year or so, due to the fact that the house is otherwise a sea of estrogen, so we’re ‘best buds’: he comes when I call him, and hangs out in my den with me when so disposed. He’s the hoodlum, delinquent, and rebel of the bunch, but that’s a guy for you. LOL
