He's a CAT!

This little muffin isn't a jelly bean anymore!  He's a kibble crunching, toy killing, toe attacking, fluff machine!  Little Hooman bathed him yesterday, she said he did great, basically purred the  whole time and didn't try to evacuate when she grabbed the stinky Princess and put her in the bathtub afterward.  He eats, he plays, he crashes.  He eats, he plays, he crashes.  Heeatsheplayshecrashes.  No ankle is safe anymore.  

Pictures are hard to come by due to excessive running, jumping, and biting....so one serene pic and the latest Thor video!

Awww look at him, he is getting so big and catlike.

 

Im glad he was good when you bathed him. When I bathed my kittens, Amber ran straight up my arm the second her paw touched the water, and then clung onto my head with her claws.

What a little cutie!  And I love how the big kitty is just too dignified to participate.

I know I've said this before - but he is just adorable!

You should be so proud of yourself. :)

@ILoveJellybeans the last two small kitties we had tried to demolish anyone who dared plunge them into the wet stuff. One house Little Hooman & I lived in had the sliding door on the bathtub. She'd put the bathing suit on, grab the cat and shut she & the kitty in there. There was a bath one way or the other! :my_biggrin:

@catlady Big TeX rules these here parts. He'll lay down & spat with the baby, but don't make him get up! He's the grouchy old man/ peace keeper.

@Palimpsest I'm so grateful he is healthy. Every time I walk out to feed the dogs I give the babies a pause or a hello. It's been a rough year & he's been a wonderful little bright black spot. :my_smile:

He's so soft!  His fur has thickened up and he's got this soft plush fuzz all over his little body, not too long, not too short.

his little tail is starting to look better. He looks so soft and cuddly...but I can also see he's a little terror. Do your hands look like hamburger yet?

@feministxtian He's definitely got the rawr kitty thing down pat!  He chases the older cats when they don't want to play with him and climbs us when we aren't paying attention.  We all have some battle scars :my_biggrin:  The truly funny thing is when you see a 12 lb mouser run full throttle from the room because hissing at him didn't deter the "swat swat swat".  They run, he kitten gallops behind them.  He's maybe 2 lbs now?  I need to get a picture of Texi holding his head down.  The baby bows up to him, so the response is either bat the crap out of him or simply put a giant paw on his head and smoosh him into the carpet.  It's utterly hilarious.  But man when he's sweet....he's sweet.  He's all purrs and kitten pats.

My dynamic duo were/are the same way They are still attention hogs. They will studiously ignore us until we find something else to do besides watching TV. I'm about to go study...there will be at least one cat on the table next to me, occasionally swatting my hand as I use the mouse. 

When they were babies, my hands and arms looked like hamburger. They spent most of their time laying on me, playing with me, etc. They'd climb up on me when I came home from work. Now they don't climb up but they will tell me about their day when I get home. Luke bitches that Leia hid from him (behind the TV) and Leia will bitch that Luke wouldn't leave her alone.

I love all these Thor updates! I've never had a kitten, but I'm on my second hard-sell adopted cat. The first was old and sick, and not expected to live a year (she lived 6 wonderful years and I still miss her - she died in my arms).

The second was a rage-filled monster of a cat, who didn't have much fur, was severely underweight, completely red and raw from flea bite allergy, and just didn't understand that biting is not a good way to get yourself a Forever Home. Unless, of course, Mr and Mrs Jellybean are in town. Cocoa bit both of us, and we looked at each other and agreed that this was the one for us. 

Three years on, she is now plump and long-haired (who knew?!) and I probably over feed her because I know where she's been and a little of her history, and because I'm a bit of a sucker for the 'There's no food in my bowl' song! She did a lot of biting and scratching and mauling initially, and Mr J and I both looked like we were seriously self-harming for quite a long time (about a year!), but is now calm-ish and snuggly, though still a sucker for twitching knitting yarn - must defend the humans from the dangerous yarn-weevils!

 

ETA Thor's little white tummy *squee* and your smallhooman (sorry, I know that isn't the right name) is so right that they're training us, and not the other way round!

I was just updating Mr. P on your wonderful job with Thor, @Imrlgoddess.  I played your "Thorsday" video where tiny Thor meows.

Miss W., who celebrates her 2 week anniversary of being home today, rushed over to the laptop - ears at happy and playful position.  She then went under the table searching for the kitty noise.  Still happy and no aggressive ears or tail.  Playful.

I already know that Little Guy is very cat friendly.  He thinks cats are cool but need to be treated with respect.  Miss W. may be cat workable too - but more testing is required.  I've always loved kitties.  I still never ask for "cat workable" dogs when I go to adopt because they are in very high demand.

I've had greys who ask for the ketchup at the very thought of a cat.

Pondering testing Miss W. with cats more because maybe ... but where would I put the litter box?

Why, in the dog's food dish, of course!

You should apologize.  That is gross. Disgusting. Vile.

And VERY realistic!  :laughing-jumpingpurple:

I think EVERYONE should have kittehs. Mr. Xtian, who wasn't much of a cat person now watches and chuckles at every Mighty Thor video. I posted another pic of uptight Luke elsewhere...he needs to learn to relax.

      Elizabeth Shamblin Hannah posted this lengthy praise of her mother on the Weigh Down Ministries FB page…

       

      Thanks for sharing the long passage by Elizabeth. It is amazing to see the mindset that is still a part of RF. As I read through it I felt a mixture of sadness and anger. 
       

      I felt sadness because it is clear that the leaders of RF are completely blinded. They want to dismiss the documentary as “false accusations” from “enemies of God.” They want to claim that they have the TRUTH (always fully capitalized) and everything else is lies. From things Gwen taught while we were a part of RF, I know that if a prominent religious leader was killed in a manner such as she was she would have said that it was God’s judgment. But this writing makes it clear that they will not examine what they have done and people will continue to be hurt and abused by their controlling practices. 
       

      I felt anger because there is no remorse for anything they have done. The documentary brought that out regarding the death of the Smith boy - according to Gwen they did nothing wrong. They will not consider the stories of real experiences of real people that have damaged and, in some cases, destroyed lives. However I do believe that the lack of responsibility will lead to greater consequences.

      Besides this, it looked like a nice wedding, the video was well made, everyone seemed happy, the lack of Josh was refreshing. I know only some of the brothers were groomsmen but given TLC wasn't filming they might have chosen to include him if they'd wanted to. That or they edited him and fam out because they felt it wouldn't go down well with the fans, and that's fine by me too. They get the message, on some level.

      I also think the more ''younger Duggars'' wedding we will see, the less Josh will be included in the wedding parties. The smaller kids are probably not even that close to him. Josh married in 2008 and thus left home when Justin was 6 YO. I doubt they are that close (thank goodness).

      I used to think chattel slavery might be wrong, but thanks to Doug Wilson I now know that anything can be justified if you just ignore the verses that say it’s wrong!

      My kids are the same age and I agree! It is so much easier to go to a wedding without kids!

      This summer we went to my cousins wedding out of state and we took our kids as most of my family was attending. Well my sister and her kids, last minute I might add, were unable to come and my kids were the only other kids at the wedding. Thankfully we thought to bring my son's tablet (he has ADHD and OCD) so he just hid in a corner after dinner with my Mom and his tablet. My 6 year old though was cutting a rug all night, she was the life of the party lol.

      They can be fine between them believing things but others having other rules to go by. They also are able to think for themselves and decide to make their own choices and live in the real world like the rest of us all while being Christians. They realise the heathen world does not threaten their way of life.

      I'm so glad someone recognized this! Fundamentalist Christians are a small subset of Christianity. In my tradition, we do not believe that our denomination will be the ONLY ones who are saved. No, that door is wide open! We practice open communion. There is a "statement of beliefs" put out by the General Conference, but if one goes to the Pew Surveys, one would find that the POV of the denomination slants more liberal than hard-core trunt. My congregation of not quite 300 people is very active in the community. Food banks, farmer's markets, medical care, taking care of other needs, these things are central to our church. Our Pastor does not get paid out of church offerings, he is paid by the Conference, so there's no reason to "cook the books". However, the utter generosity of the small congregation would blow you away! One family lost a child due to a tragic accident. Within a week, we had raised enough money to go to the family to let mom, dad and the family rest and deal with their grief w/o worrying about financial obligations for a couple of months. We've furnished apartments for refugees, we DO, not a whole lot of saying, but a lot of DOING. 

      The "heathen" world doesn't threaten me one bit. I'm quite able to function in that world and still hold my beliefs.

      LOL, I read the Bible an awful lot for someone who's a hard-materialist atheist. But, then, I was raised culturally Christian, & US culture is so deeply steeped in Christianity, it's difficult to escape it.
      I like the Bible websites, tending to like the gateway one better than the hub one, for usability reasons. I really like that they have all the versions, all the different books, & all the commentaries. I did buy a Bible, in college lol, a big fat scholastic bible with all the books & a ton of footnotes. I started an atrocity project with it long ago & it's full of post-its.
      I've definitely developed a preference in versions, liking the NIV best so far, it's marvelously clear & the least disappointing when I dig into the depths. The KJVs are muddled & difficult to understand. Recently I've gotten to thinking that's why all these my-own-private-patriarchal-cult & grifters & et al like the KJVs so much, cuz they're a more obscure version that requires more 'explaining', is more open to interpretation. In addition to the obvious historical reasons why, like feeling all connected to the Pilgrim eras, & sounding all Shakespearean.
      I mostly end up reading the Bible as a fact-checking exercise, wondering what the verses & chapters say, the verses that people will have in their bios or social media postings. Tho' I do a fair amount of wondering why people think a thing that ostensibly has Biblical roots, digging around that.
      Fwiw.
