Thank you, everyone, for your orders and for your donations. Thank you. I think I have enough to cover the immediate medical stuff, as long as the tooth thing isn't too expensive. I've got an appointment for Tuesday and I will let you know how it goes. Thank you, too, to everyone who could only leave well-wishes. There's never any need to apologize for not being able to help out with money. Obviously I know how that is.

As a thank you, I have something for you.

Yeti-cat picture dump!

Tazendra always liked weird food. It makes me feel better to learn some of Smooch's weird food preferences. Like potato chips. OMFG. He loves chips.

Chips 1

He doesn't actually eat them, he just carries them around and licks them a bit, then leaves them on the floor, sticky.

Chips 2

He -- I am pretty sure he was the culprit -- also carried a terrible-tasting Play-Doh smelling knockoff Oreo cookie off the table and left it near the litter box. A commentary on the taste, no doubt, which was pretty unbelievably awful.

Yeti Looove

He likes to come snuggle me at random intervals, and will lay like this, like a hairy pancake, right on my chest. More usually, though, he looks like this:

Cutie Pie

Lyin' next to me on the back of the couch.

Or he lies like this on my husband's chair:

Marshmallow 1

Marshmallow 2

Marshmallow 4

Dorble! Lookit the armpit fluffs!

Marshmallow 3

And SO goofy!

Movie Tiems 1

I will never get tired of taking pictures of him lying in the DVD pile.

Movie Tiems 2

Movie Tiems 3

I'll never get tired of taking pictures of him, period.

He's just so funny-looking. Funny guy. Funny smelly guy.

There. Something happy and cute and fuzzy to get you through Sunday and Monday, sanity intact. Or at least, that's what he's doing for me. Had a bad week, but I think the worst is past, and things will be okay.

Quick reminder, before I go and pack the last of the orders, I'm drawing for a large suncatcher ornament on Monday for anyone who donates to my paypal (button here) or orders from my Etsy shop before midnight. The coupon code XMAS2011 is still good for 15% off!

Just comment on this entry if you donate or order! I want to keep it all in one neat place!

Thank you again. Thank you. <3

I have a cat who will eat Cheetos and Cheezit crackers. She also loves the canned Cheez Whiz stuff even better than I do, and is right there the instant the top comes off the can (sometimes before - I eat the stuff on Wheat Thins, and she comes running when she hears the inner wrapper crinkle on the crackers). She gets the dried bit that forms in the nozzle of the can when you're done with it, and this is The Best Thing In The World.

The first time my parents' ancient sumo kitty* Calliope ate something other than cat food, it was a Cheezit cracker. This was also the first time we heard her growl, which was hilarious because she was all of about 8 weeks old and tiny.

Our old cat loved Pringles, green olives, and cantalope. Never did figure that one out.

* I call her 'sumo kitty' mostly because at 17, her age has finally exceeded her weight...

One of our cats likes to lick the salt off of chips, too. She also likes to lick/suck the gravy off of gooshy food and leave the meat chunks in the bowl. She's a weirdo. <3

My girl does the exact same stuff. Then she complains to get more gooshy food when hers doesn't have any gravy left on it.

Was it from Amazon (wrapped) or a third party? I got two, Sargon intercepted them both, and now they're both waiting under the treeeeeeeeee. . . .

He lies like that ALLA TIEM. In the hallway, the entryway, the middle of the floor. Huge, tempting expanses of fuzzy tummy!

We call it his "belly trap."

The jury is out on whether he does it to wrestle your arm or to lure you in to pet him.

Awww, I love his sweet wonky face <3

I'm so glad to hear that things are getting better for you. I'm dead broke because of all of this year's medical expenses for myself and Kira, but you and Sargon are getting tons of good wishes and positive vibes from me :)

Smooch helps me smile even if I'm crying. Hasn't been a good past couple days, and it doesn't help I feel like I do suffer from some sort of depression. Ugh, just crappy times right now, but these pictures I can't help but smile at. Smooch is just so cute and FUZZY! It makes me want to snuggle him!

You're welcome, and thank YOU for making stuff for us! I'm glad to "hear" things are starting to look up.

*hugs* I'm sorry you've been feeling crappy. Obviously, I know the feeling, and I wouldn't wish it on anyone.

He is extremely snuggly, if you don't mind the smell. He is so fluffy! Not as soft as Tazendra, whose fur was like super-long bunny fur, but so cottony and poofy!

He always makes me smile, too. Always.

Y'know, he does look like that figurine, but with attitude! What a sweetie -- I think you guys were meant for each other.

My kitty Emma used to sip diet Pepsi from my drinks. Or regular Pepsi, she didn't care. So far, she's been the first and only Pepsi-drinking cat I know of. In the present family, Harold also loves weird food - if you have chips or popcorn you *must* throw him some (small pieces) until he's had enough, otherwise you will have no peace. His sister Violet is the same, but not quite as insistent. This has led to both of them getting their heads stuck in chip bags (separately) and racing around blind until we could stop laughing and help them.

He does! It's his mini-Mooch.

And LOL! I know from experience how hard it is to catch and assist a bag-trapped cat while you are gasping for breath and blind from tears of mirth. Tazendra, when she was small, used to get trapped in bags all the time, until we started being really careful about throwing them out or putting them away!

Smooch is always so damned cute, like goofy stuffed toy. I also have a terribly cute cat (a lovely tortie girl), but she's cute in an "animate puddle* with bat-ears" sort of way instead of a "mountain of piratical floof" way - I love seeing those pictures of him!

*Harley is a liquid, not a solid. This is the only explanation for some of the bizarre positions she attains while cuddling and purring uproariously.

Awwwwwww! Awwwww!

That sounds a LOT like Etrigan, who seems to flatten into a flat black pancake no matter what position he is in. He looks like engine sludge with ears. Very cute!

Smooch is always good for making me laugh/smile. :) I want to smoosh him.

From: [identity profile]
I'm curious about the correct pronunciation of Smooch's name :P Etrigan is pretty straightforward for me, Smooch is not :)

Also... fluff! <3 Now that I've moved out of my parents' house, I realize how I miss having a pet around. It is affecting me in ways I wouldn't ever imagine.

Date: 2011-12-12 11:45 am (UTC)

I would be terribly lonely without a pet. I have quite literally never in my life been without a cat as a friend. I was lucky. I acquired Tazendra almost exactly a month before I moved out of my parents' place, and she lived at my husband's apartment until then, so I had a ready-made roommate.

"Smooch" has the same drawn-out 'ooo' sound as the one in boot, do, true, and fool. 'Ch' as in cheese, change, and chop.

The picture of him glaring at the bag of chips is beyond hilarious. I think he and my funny looking Inky would make a good pair. Even with both eyes she's a ridiculous mess of a cat. Fangs, giant ear tufts, slightly squished mouth and a tail that is more feathery than furry.

I showed this pictures to my husband, and he thinks Smooch might have the voice of Winston Churchill. He would wear a top hat and smoke cigars - when you're not looking, of course.

Date: 2011-12-21 10:42 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
I believe that you (pl.) may very well be right! :D

Although if he REALLY smoked cigars, he would probably smell LESS HORRIBLE. OMG. Literally no difference between his breath and nasty old sardines and rancid fish oil.
