Saving one animal will not not change the world but it will change the world for that animal.

A quiet week at Chez Tigre. I got Toes’ ashes back Tuesday. Pet Memorial does a bang up job. Nice wooden urn, looks like cherry wood, a paw print in some kind of material and ashes in a velveteen bag. They did the same with Kismet but Toes’ urn is a little smaller and nicer.

I’m very disappointed with ICanHazCheeseburger. They’ve been rearranging the site for the last few weeks and in an hour’s time I found one image that did not have a caption, some of which are really stooopid. So. I’ll be recycling images I’ve used before.

Here’s the only image I found without a caption today.

This the image of the ferals I posted last week. See the grey kitteh just to the left of the little orange guy? She’s the friendliest little thing. She wants lots of attention and every time I walk out of the porch she comes running, looking for scritches.

For those who missed my diary on losing Toes Monday it’s here.

I had 3 kittehs I fed in the bedroom because they get canned food and have to be isolated so they can eat in peace. While I was monitoring Toes’ eating I noticed that both Ptah and Tama were leaving a lot of food in their bowls. They were getting a can of either Fancy Feast grilled chicken or beef and a third of a can of either beef or chicken classic (pate) mixed in. I long ago saw that Toes wouldn’t eat the grilled so he’d been getting pate all along. They were leaving a lot of the grilled pieces and eating all of the pate. Towards the end of the week I changed them to 1 can of chicken or beef pate, eliminating the grilled altogether. I was going through 70 cans of Fancy Feast a week, that’s including the 14 cans a week for Maste. This way I’m down to 42 but I’d have been happier at 56. Twenty-eight cans at $0.60 a copy is a pretty good chunk o’ change every week.

A quiet week at Chez Tigre with the exception of either Nagi or Sita tearing the screen out of the kitchen window. I can’t seem to catch either one in the act but find one of them sitting on the sill with all the stuff that lives on the sill in the sink. Devils.

Another quiet week at Chez Tigre. Well, almost.

So it’s Monday evening, time to put the trash (mostly used litter) out next to the alley. I finish that task and come back in to do the boxes and feed the crew. For some reason while I’m in the computer room scooping out the boxes I go back into the kitchen and, uh oh, the kitchen door’s ajar. Aw, shit, how many have I got out on the screened porch? I step out onto the porch, look around and there’s only one, sitting on the ledge looking out the screen. Yep, yellowsnapdragon’s buddy, Nagi. I say, “Nagi, what are you doin’ out here?” He looks at me and starts to work his way over and around all the stuff that’s piled up along the edges of the porch. It’s wood to about waist high with an 8″ ledge where the screening actually starts. He walks over to the kitchen door and when I open it he walks right back in. No muss, no fuss.

This is my first experience with a purebred Manx and it’s quite the experience. There isn’t any place this little guy can’t get into or onto. The framework that contains the glass shower doors is about 1 1/2″ at the top. I can tell when he jumps up there by the sound the toilet tank lid makes cuz it’s not a perfect fit on the tank. It’s not far, maybe 3-4 feet, but he’s so good he never fails to make it up there without incident. Same thing with the kitchen cabinets. It’s nothing to walk into the kitchen and see Nagi looking down at me. Little guy’s just an absolute joy to be around.

Nagi and his bff and partner in crime, Feurae.

A quiet week at Chez Tigre. A little scare with Toes not eating but it turned out he was just frightened from having Ptah go after him at dinner time Friday night. Poor little guy is afraid of his own shadow.

Tropical storm in the Gulf so I’m just hangin’ out at home. Was going to PetSmart but think I’ll hold off until tomorrow.

They’d better find a better place for da bunny when this cub gets older.

The dog did it.

Happy Father’s Day to all you dads out there.

Sad week at Chez Tigre. As most of you know in addition to a houseful of tigers I also have a budgerigar, commonly known as a parakeet, named Lao Tzu. Predominantly white with some pale blue on his head and wings. He’s at least 10 years old. In addition to being a pleasure to watch he serenaded us every evening, particularly around 10-11 o’clock. Sometimes some beautiful birdsong, other times that crazy budgie chatter. Wednesday morning I fed him and changed his water as usual. A couple hours later I was walking out to the kitchen and didn’t see him on a perch. I went over to the cage and he was on the bottom. Rest In Peace, Lao Tzu. You’ve been a wonderful companion. See ya at the Bridge.

With the exception of hairballs and Bapu poopin’ on the floor Chez Tigre has been a dull place this week. I watched My Neighbor Totoro yesterday. Forest spirits. What a cute film.

Big Cat Rescue has rescued some young bobcats this year. Sadly, one of them, Rufus, the blind bobcat, passed away at the end of April. Here’s an earlier video made shortly after Rufus was rescued.
