Fluffy white cats are totally adorable.
I attempted to get some adorable pictures of Pixel running around with her squeaky plush purple turtle. Unfortunately, between bad lighting, phone's camera app, and my lack of skill--and I guess her enthusiasm--what I have is a lot of blurry pictures in which a black blur has a purple blur. Ah well.
Like because I had this happen to me when I was a kid. One of our cats (the three-legged one!) managed to stun a mallard duck and drag it inside, upstairs and underneath my parents bed. It woke up and there was blood, mud, and feathers everywhere!
Min was crying a couple of times yesterday/last night and we couldn't figure out why. She did it again this AM while using the litter box, so off to the vet we went. $270 later we have a traumatized cat with a bare patch over her bladder (they had to take a sample the direct way), an injection of antibiotics in case it's a urinary tract infection (most likely) and some expensive tests to see if it is, in fact, a UTI or she has crystals in the urine. Best case scenario is that the injection will clear it up and she will get immediate relief. Right now she's looking very happy snuggled up in Mr. W's left arm while he plays Civ5, which is pretty much her favorite place in the world to be. She's had a tough day!
D'awwww, poor kitty. Hope she helps Mr. W conquer the world in the name of catnip. :)
This makes me very happy to hear. Get well soon, Min!
Oberon is watching Bolt. Seriously, he is totally into it. He's been glued to the TV for a while now... is he going to watch the whole thing?
The answer was yes.
I like how you framed the last pic.
An old family friend of ours had a Devon Rex that would sit right up on the TV stand to watch Animal Planet. Watching this tiny cat's head whipping back and forth to follow a snake on screen was adorable. :D
Our dogs will watch the TV with us. Like, actually watch the TV, not just hang out in the room with the TV.
My sister got herself a lop eared rabbit recently and I finally got to meet him the other day.
Here he is taking a quick rest after adventurously hopping around the kitchen and snuffling at everyone's feet (apologies for the poor quality, I was using my phone):
My sister hasn't named him yet (she's been calling him Pudding). Any ideas? My mum wanted to name him Honey... I feel like I must save him from being named something cutesy!
Hmmm. Bunny names.
I got nuthin', sorry.
I named all my rabbits after Watership Down characters, except one black and white one who I named Bandit (she had black circles around her eyes.)
Hmm... I don't think he's a tough enough rabbit to have General Woundwort as his namesake. I'll ask my sister if she's read Watership Down, then. Actually, now that I think about it, I don't believe I ever finished that book. I started reading it as a kid and never finished it (it was probably a bit much for me, I was a sensitive child).
Fiver! Or Hazel. Or Blackberry. Crap, wasn't there a lop-eared rabbit in that book? Who was that?
Edit: I'm thinking of Blackavar. Probably don't name him that.
What's wrong with Pudding? He's a cutie!
There's nothing wrong with Pudding!
One of these days you assholes will learn not to hotlink images:
Face it Ely, that day is never going to come.
I live on the edge. Most times the hotlinks work.
I miss having a bunny. </3
He looks like a Hazel to me, but Bigwig or Pipkin would also be acceptable. <3
EDIT: You could also just suggest people names! Like ... I don't know ... Bob. Or famous people! Like Napoleon!
Pick any famous Robert and replace with Rabbit, or famous Bobby and replace with Bunny.
Then take photos and share them with us.
I would, but I do not trust my other beasts to not be Bad. Lizzie has a really strong hunting instinct, and while my former bunny, Usagi, taught her not to fuck with her, Lizzie was a little bitty kitten back then. Now she's a grown up and hasn't had a rabbit put the fear of God in her for years. And Jack is a derp who doesn't understand no means no.
Aren't bunnies stinky to keep as pets?
Looks like a Wernstrom to me.
Holy shit, I wanted to suggest Bob or Napoleon. ARE YOU IN MY BRAIN
eta: or Sjofn
They're not like ferrets, they're not inherently stinky. The old school wood shaving litter sucks, though, so yes, their pee will stink if you're using that. Recycled paper litter is the greatest thing ever, though. You still have to change the litter regularly, obviously, but bunnies aren't stinky with the right litter. My cats are stinkier for sure. Plus if the bunny decides to poop on the rug, it is the easiest thing in the world to clean up and not stinky at all, as it's just little hard pellets you can suck up in a vacuum. I cannot say the same for a dog or cat.
AND bunnies can be litter trained (shit, my Usagi trained HERSELF. She only went in her cage, period.).
Also, shift6, Sjofn is a GIRL name. Duh!
Here is a picture of Usagi, by the way. St. Usagi, Patron Saint of Destroying Any and All Paper Bags:
Fine then, name him Ingmar The Mighty Who Is Definitely Not Sjofn. :P plbtbtbt!
Actually, I'd go with Pudding The Mighty, or something equally innocuous as a base. Calling anything that floppy The Mighty just makes me giggle.
Nute The Mighty.
Joxer the Mighty!!
I see what you did there.
In the neighborhood, but not quite as on-the-nose:
If he's a particularly slow bunny you could also steal Thust Ramjet. I'm really quite proud of that one and I'll never use it outside of character names in games.
Speaking of Chunk, he's healing up fine down there. But during a chew session, while I was taking away his antler that was getting too small, I managed to get my fingertip in the way of his chewing. It was stupid on my part, I'd grown complacent since our other dog has very good mouth control, and you never ever feel teeth from her no matter what you do. He wasn't being aggressive or anything, he was just being oblivious and chewing away without any concern for where my hands where. His 'drop it' command still needs to be worked on obviously.
My fingernail broke off at about the 1/3 point, and the rest of the tip is a bloody mess. They x-rayed the tip to check if the bone was broken too, but luckily its fine. And I had to get a tetanus booster as well.
I assume if people let their cats outdoors that they actively celebrate the mass killing of birds. I can't imagine what else they expect to happen, apart from maybe the cat being killed in a horrible accident.
Separate names with a comma.
