I may or may not be enticing my neighbour's cats to come over so I can pet them by conveniently placing food outside for them.

At my last flat, there was access to the roof and my two used to run around up there. One of them would disappear for hours on end, and wasn’t eating, but she wasn’t losing weight either: the only reason she seemed to come home was for a dump in the litter tray and increasingly rare cuddles. Some months later, in passing one of my neighbours mentioned she’d befriended an astonshingly well-groomed  “stray” cat, and wondered where it’d come from.

(Ours don’t wear collars but they are microchipped.)

Yey !!!!  .......  I want a 'Solder' cat too !!!!!   :) :) :)
We just have to teach American cats that it is NOT called "SODDERING" !!!!!!!   :)

My cat is not the sharpest tool in the shed, she'd probably inhale all the fumes or try to lick the solder iron.  She likes any kind of smoke.  Especially cigarettes. lol.

You know that's not a good way to dry them, right?  Just use a towel.   :P

Yeah. Using a cat to dry anything is a bad idea, they get awfully clawy.

That's what the microwave is for. They tend to be much more docile after 10 minutes or so on full power.

Tell me it can't be done and I'll do it. Or give it a damned good try.

Why is it that among engineers, cats seem to be more popular than dogs?

Alas the microscope looks like some sort of weird hat...

This was a while ago - he is somewhat bigger now.

Don't tell my dog. I think she believes she is a cat.

We ALL know there are Dog LOVERS, and those that don't CARE one way or another......
However, there are MANY cat HATERS!!! and that's where take offence......
O.K. ....   A Cat won't (generally) chase a stick into the river & bring it back !!, or chase
a ball & bring it back,  (generally!!),  and I love dogs too & always had one !!!
However, being a lover of animals in 'general', I ALSO love my cats !!!
"YES" they are 'different'.... and for all imaginable reasons...
When they are just born & later, and they curl/cuddle against you, and learn to trust you.
Apart from 'Food', they absolutely love/trust/hug you, and fall asleep with total TRUST.
When you know a Cat long enough, you/they understand  each other and are at peace!!!
Sharing your bed/pillow, and purring.... "Damn dog is rolling in the horse-shit again" !!!!!
Love them both, but for different reasons xoxox

The Cat’s Diary

Day 983 of My Captivity

My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects. They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while the other inmates and I are fed hash or some sort of dry nuggets. Although I make my contempt for the rations perfectly clear, I nevertheless must eat something in order to keep up my strength.

The only thing that keeps me going is my dream of escape. In an attempt to disgust them, I once again vomit on the carpet. Today I decapitated a mouse and dropped its headless body at their feet. I had hoped this would strike fear into their hearts, since it clearly demonstrates my capabilities. However, they merely made condescending comments about what a “good little hunter” I am. Bastards!

There was some sort of assembly of their accomplices tonight. I was placed in solitary confinement for the duration of the event. However, I could hear the noises and smell the food. I overheard that my confinement was due to the power of “allergies.” I must learn what this means, and how to use it to my advantage.

Today I was almost successful in an attempt to assassinate one of my tormentors by weaving around his feet as he was walking. I must try this again tomorrow, but at the top of the stairs.

I am convinced that the other prisoners here are flunkies and snitches. The dog receives special privileges. He is regularly released, and seems to be more than willing to return. He is obviously retarded. The bird must be an informant. I observe him communicate with the guards regularly. I am certain that he reports my every move. My captors have arranged protective custody for him in an elevated cell, so he is safe. For now ...

CATS?
Hobbyist and a retired engineer and possibly a test equipment addict, though, searching for the equipment to test for that.
