Give me attention now or else!

So I was sat at the laptop when Alfie jumps up and demanded attention, I give him a pet and a cuddle and ask him nicely to move, he sticks his head in closer and gives me the more attention or else look.

Silly mum ignores Alfie hoping he will give up and go and lie down for a snooze. Well, said Alfie, if you don't want me then I will see too it that you can't have the laptop.

He is now computer literate and can adjust the screen brightness, adjust the volume for you, take screenshots (which I cancel), turn airplane mode on and off. His best trick so far, he can shut the laptop down. Upshot of this is that mum will not ignore Alfie again! lol

He reminds me of our orange and white boy, Teddy.  Gone but never forgotten!

My girls all are computer literate to varying degrees.  Fluffy butt prefers to sit beside and use the imperious paw to communicate her thoughts.

I have had three different cats now in the "seedling" window on the heat mat.  Apparently everyone likes a warm place in the sun.  Plants count for nothing!

@Tikobaby  Teddy is beautiful.  Facebook reminded me yesterday that it had been two years since we said good-bye to my Savannah love.

As I type, our ancient old boy, (18 years old), Tippy, is wallowing on the lap of Mrs. Baby in the living room recliner watching tv with her.  Teddy was his special buddy and he was a beautiful cat, thanks @SpoonfulOSugar.   We're down to only Tippy and our other boy cat, Rhon, indoors here at the Cat Ranch.  That's what all of our friends call our house & yard since we've always had a large number of housecats plus an wandering assortment of yardcats who've come and gone on their own. We've lost so many of our indoor herd and several yardcats are also laid to rest in our Cat's Corner in the backyard. It's wonderful to live with a family of loving cats, but so hard to lose them one by one.  RIP Savannah and all of our sweet kitties.  :cat:

Oh my @Tikobaby, Teddy is Alfie's double. RIP Teddy and RIP Savannah @SpoonfulOSugar. My last blog post was about my gorgeous boy Coops who died 7yrs ago. I hope they are all playing together chasing mice and having fun. :cat:

They do look a lot alike!  I like to think all of our cats are somewhere beautiful, knowing we love them and remember them...they all deserve it and it's comforting.  :cat:

@Tikobaby, I just showed my daughter Teddy's pic, she thought it was Alfie and when I told her it wasn't she asked if Teddy was one of Alfie's brother or sisters. Just took this pic.

I just love when they sit like that with paws tucked under. I am a new cat owner and love them so so much. I am sad I waited until I was 40 to get a cat.image.jpeg

They really could be related...so much alike!  Here's a pic from the good old days of 2008...Teddy and his best buddy Tippy on our lanai.

@Grimalkin  Is s/he fond of belly rubs?  When I see that pose, I just want to love on 'em.  I tried this morning and got told in NO UNCERTAIN TERMS that I was out of line.

My demon loves belly time, though.  (And I love it with her.)  She was bonded with my Savannah.  *sighs*

I cannot imagine life without cats.  I am unabashedly a cat person, while the Mister is a dog person.

My angel Tiko would let me gently rub his little belly as long as I didn't over do it. He was such a loving cat...my sweet little boy. Next month will be a year since he passed away and we miss him every day, especially at night when he would always jump up on our bed and cuddle with me for hours. Here's a pic of him cuddled in my arm...so precious!

@Tikobaby he looks so soft! What a sweetie pie!

@SpoonfulOSugar I have a set of brothers who look very much alike and they both seem to like belly rubs. I was unaware that it was a no-no for cats until my youngest daughter's friend came over to celebrate our adoption. She informed us about never ever touching the belly, then played a song for us on her clarinet which she bought with her, and amused us with her card tricks. She was shocked our cats don't mind it. I love that kid.

Tiko was the softest, cuddliest, angel of a cat...so loving and sweet. He stayed small after he'd grown up and his eyes were a beautiful mix of blue & green, slightly crossed, but it didn't bother him a bit. He rarely made a sound, but when he did, it came out like a creaky little screen door opening and was so cute that both Mrs. Baby and I always fell all over ourselves petting him and praising him for "talking to mama"!  Here's one of my favorite photos of him.

What a beautiful cat Tiko was @Tikobaby. @Grimalkin, your cat is gorgeous as well. Cats are the best!

      Gary says he doubts Trump is saved (he just thinks it's a shame that a man who "done America so good" is going to Hell), and I suspect he doesn't like Falwell. So, in this, he is, in his shitty obnoxious way, pretty consistent.

      Good question. I guess the fact that someone came up with it and wrote it out, but it is not KJV, makes it bad.

      As you say, he does insist that what you say when you get saved, just like when you pray, has to be from the heart. You know, just like the totally predictable things that Gary repeats over and over are OK, and Biblical, because he claims he says them from the heart and he got them from Jesus.

      It's Garylogic.

      My opinion is that he doesn't like the sinner's prayer because it omits one important part -- Gary.  How can you lead people to salvation if they've found the way on their own?  He's not going to get points for that.  And he needs lots of points to end up eating Chah-nese with John the Baptist.

      I honestly don't know how you listen to so much of Gary.  He's such a pissy, useless human that I mostly feel like reaching through the screen and slapping his face.  Then again, he still reminds me of my late father-in-law -- a church-going, bigoted, hateful waste of perfectly good oxygen.

      Interesting, because Jerry Fallwell, Jr. tells us that Trump is saved because he knelt down in Falwell's office and repeated the sinner's prayer.  So, Gary, if that prayer isn't good enough, then your president isn't saved.

      What is his problem anyway? I thought praying in your own words is totally ok and encouraged so why would it matter if a prayer is from KJB or not.

      Thanks for the reminder. I had forgotten about Jake Eakin. He loves to call abortion murder. And he’s actually been convicted of murder. It’s insane. 

      Likewise, a lot of these people oppose “Sharia Law” yet support installing a Christian theocracy in the United States.

      My sister has boys and she has felt somewhat left out on the births of her grandkids. It made me more aware of my son-in-law’s needs when my grandson was born. At least, I hope it did. 
      We tried to keep a low profile when baby’s paternal grandparents were here the first week after his birth. I spent most nights at the house after they had gone back to the hotel; but we wanted to make sure they had lots of time without having to “share” the baby. 
      I am grateful all of us grandparents get along.  There was one evening where we all got stuck at the new parents’ house overnight. A storm had knocked a tree down, blocking the only exit from the neighborhood. None of us got to leave! It will be a fun memory to share with our grandson one day. 

      I actually had someone who kept trying to make villains out of my son-in-law and his parents leading up to the birth. She said things like “Those other grandparents should give you all some space.”  I finally said “Look, if it were my son instead of my daughter, I’d be crushed if someone took that attitude about me.” 
       

      Allison doesn’t have to worry about her mother overstepping; her mother hasn’t even shown up. 

      I am thanking you for this because what a lovely attitude to have!!!
