For this Caturday Flashback, I thought I'd revisit September 2014. I was still new around here, and I had just been spayed. I was taking some time off from cat shows while I healed... and my human figured out how cat shows worked.
One of the first things my human did was buy me this Sturdi enclosure for my cat show benching area. It's hard to believe this is that old, bent-up thing I mostly use now. (Can you tell I'm hinting around for a new one?
She also got this. If I'd known what it was for, I might not have been so eager to pose with it! That's another reason I needed to take time before I began showing again. I couldn't get a bath for a couple of weeks after I got spayed.
At least it came with an awesome box to play in!
Well, my fun didn't last very long.
She certainly took her time hanging around in that box.
Anyhow, by the end of the month, I was back doing shows and making kitten finals! * * *
Real Madrid 5 – Real Sociedad 2 Real Madrid scored five time on Saturday night in La Liga. Lowly Real Sociedad lost 5-2 at the Santiago Bernabeu, as Cristiano Ronaldo stole the headlines once again. The 33-year-old scored a hat-trick for Los Blancos. Moreover, it was a 'perfect' hat-trick: a header, and goals with his left and right boots. Lucas Vazquez got the ball rolling for Real scoring after just 55 seconds. Toni Kroos also found the target for Madrid. Jon Bautista and Asier Illarramendi bagged second half consolation goals for Sociedad. Real Madrid are fourth in the Spanish top flight.
Real Madrid vs PSG This week, on Valentine's Day, Real Madrid take on PSG in the Champions League. The match in Spain is the first of the two legged last-16 knockout tie. Zinedine zidane made a few changes to his starting XI against Sociedad. Most noticeably, Gareth Bale was left on the bench. The Welsh star was brought on as a second half sub, and Bale looks set to start against PSG in midweek. Nacho and Casemiro were also given the night off against Sociedad. The right-back and defensive midfielder should also return against the Ligue 1 powerhouse. It was also eye-catching that Luka Modric was subbed out of Saturday's game just after the hour mark. Toulouse 0 – PSG 1 PSG were also in actin on Saturday, winning 1-0 away at Toulouse. Neymar scored the only goal of the game midway through the second half. PSG have a 12 point lead over Monaco at the top of the French Ligue 1.
Yep, this is us. All of us. Because that's out Mama who wrote Poison Paw and a few other stories, but none in the Bundle. She says we are mostly good cats, although I do not believe it of Ham. While she was gone at Superstars, he attacked me and when my dad came home he found fur and a few poops all over the bathroom. Of course, Mama says I start it because if Ham gets close to me I bop him hard on the nose. I do not know why he gets mad. But you know all of us here anyway because we've been here. So just keep following us and we will let you know when Mama has another story or book out. Oh wait–she does have a new book out but it has no cats at all! It's a Gothic ghost story set in modern times called Ghosts from the Past. So if you've read and liked “Poison Paw,” in the Fantastic Feline Heroes Bundle, you might like the ghost story too. Or not.
I am a former feral kitten but now I live inside with my cat mom. I still have my street cred and I think I have a tattoo that says “Feral Forever” that I got at the stabby place, but I like my noms and my heated cat cup too. Can I be a true feral and live inside with peoples? And how do I keep the peoples from snatching me up? (I kind of like it *embarrassed* ) Deep inside, there will always be feral things about you, so hold onto that street cred. But honestly, inside is a heck of a lot better than outside, because there's food and beds and warms, and even people. If you like being snatched up, don't be embarrassed. Even the toughest of tough doods needs a hug every now and then. I mean, turn on professional wrestling. Those doods hug each other ALL THE TIME. Even when they're only in their undies and are super sweaty. It's like, “Dood!” (grunt) “Dood!” (grunt) BRO HUG!!!, and then they slam into each other in a giant wet hug. I don't particularly care for being snatched up, but I do enjoy spending time on a lap. In fact, I like it so much I will stomp all over the Woman when she has the computer on her lap just to get her to move it and make room for me. Enjoy your affections. That's kinda the reward for getting through living the feral life. That and cheese. Make sure they give you some cheese. Max. The human boy grew up and moved away and he took the dog. When can I throw a party? Dood. Party on! Pick a night and invite all your friends to have an awesome, canine-free, cat-nip infused hallelujah blowout. You can serve shrimp and steak and niptinis, and have party games like pin the tail on the doggy, and it can go on all weekend long. But I'm gonna let you in on a secret. When the party's over and the house is quiet, you're gonna miss that loud, stinky, walking wad of fur. And it'll take a while to get over that. Trust me. I know. Dear Max, what's your favorite thing about winter? Mine is that my people stay home more and we watch TV together. My brother says it's looking out the window and watching people slip on the ice. I know you're a California dood but it gets cold there, right? What's your favorite thing?
Nothing beats this, dood. This alone was worth buying the house. If I could have it on in the summer, too, I totally would. The people do not agree. Go figure. Got a question for me?
