Thor Likes the Bathtub!

When Little Hooman gave him the first bath she said he did great.  She gave him a sink bath and he hung around in the bathroom while Princess had her royal scrubbing. She said he was fascinated. He likes to be where we are all the time so in the bath with me he came! Don't worry there's no NSFW content, just toes and kitty. He almost slipped in a couple times, that was hilarious.

He's so active now! The jingly balls have no chance, neither do toes or fingers. He has this awesome little trill/meow that he uses when he's in full swing. He's just an adorable fat ball of black poof.

I can't believe your Little Hooman was able to bathe him without picking up battle scars! We tried to bathe our first FurBoss, Angel. Once. Do you know cats have extensible legs, just like in the cartoons?  We got more water on the floor and walls than on her---and gladly paid a groomer's fee at a pet clinic for THEM to wash her.  Our current beasts like to keep us company in the bathroom, and Trixie (Junior Cat) will walk on the tub edge, but won't jump in (thank goodness).

Is he going to grow into those paws? In our old house, I had one of those glass enclosed showers. L & L would sit on the tub ledge and watch me. Now, they they will do goofy things like peek over the top of the shower curtain rail or jump on the ledge and watch. I've occasionally bathed them and they don't like it but don't fight too much. As soon as I have the $$, I'll be taking them to the pros.

Oddly enough, all three are good in the tub. We've only had one that was a terror, a little sweet tuxedo kitty years ago. The old cats tolerate it & he seems to be OK with water in general.

Be still my beating heart. He's definitely gotten cuter! :kitty:

And I love when cats talk to us. I don't doubt for a second that they can understand Human-speak more than we give them credit for. I recently read an article about a study that someone (sorry, can't remember who conducted it) did about dogs understanding our words, too.

My duo know when I'm talking to them. I think they understand a lot too...however, cats being cats, their usual response is "yeah, yeah, whatever" and keep doing whatever it is they are doing. They only "obey" when they feel like it.

He was hanging out on my shoulder a little while ago & I whispered, "I love you" to him.... He immediately turned & rubbed his face under my chin & began to purr. They understand. Of that, I have no doubt.

Oh...my two understand that too! Leia will come behind me and head-butt me. I'll reach back to give her a scratch and tell her "I love you too baby girl" and she will nuzzle my hand. Luke is a little less subtle. I'll give him a skritch after he whines in my face, tell him "I love you handsome boy" and he will end up all in my face meowing and grabbing at my hand for more skritches. They know when I tell them I love them, they know when I say no, they occasionally come when called. 

Then there's Leia's daily report of how awful Luke was while we were gone...and Luke's daily whine of how he got his butt kicked.

I'm making those sounds that some women produce upon seeing extreme cuteness.  Sadly, this has awakened the furry guardian from her nap on my abdomen.

Awwww.

Reminds me of some of the pictures my sister took of Marvel the Kitty when he first came into their lives.  I remember the first time I went down after they brought the Marvelman home, he was such a little ball of fur and energy.  I took a tail down for Marvel and it made my day seeing him running and jumping after that tail.

Oh...Mr. Xtian has been asking for Thor pics...he asks me how Thor is every day. He swears up and down he's not a cat person, but I think he's full of it. Especially when he's snuggling his "girlfriend" Leia.

I drop hints sometimes to my sister that I wanna see pictures of the Marvelman and his big sister Maggie.

My Headship likes to jump in the shower with me. It's all well and good 'til his face gets wet. Bathing him is a breeze, but loses his mind when I try to dry him with a towel.

      Welcome to those that are new….

      Interesting comment from Elizabeth. Is this the case, that they do actually have new numbers? Or are they simply trying to make things sound better than they are? Perhaps they're trying to spin the situation a bit with regards to membership numbers.

      Also, sorry to sound petty, but not a fan of the text speak being used in her message, though admittedly it's not a big feature. It definitely feels like it could use a proofread and a bit of polish. Very informal sounding and not too mature either, from someone supposedly the leader of the church.

      I’m not old enough to remember this show(I was a newborn when it was on), but I’ve learned that it was common for kids to sing “It’s about time/It’s about space/It’s about time I slapped/to slap your face.”

      The local bullies of my childhood didn't do this one.

      "I ain't gonna make the preacher stay up all night. Then we ended up makin' him stay up all night anyway." Deep voice: "In the grocery store too long, amen." Back to his normal voice: "Some of ya may get that later on, amen."

      I didn't think Gary could be more confusing.  I stand corrected.

      That one left me completely in the dark. All I could even theorize is that, somewhere (maybe just in Gary's mind), "grocery store" is a euphemism for bathroom. But googling (yes, I did!) turned up nothing.

      Maybe they were raiding the pastor's refrigerator all night.

      Maybe, they actually had the pastor take them grocery shopping late at night! But then, why would it be something Gary considers witty?

      Only saved, Bible-believing Christians keep their tools in good repair.

      The weddings that I attended had “blessings showers” held the night before the wedding. Kind of like a rehearsal dinner but with a lot more people. And instead of blessing the bride and groom. Everyone who spoke (including the bride and groom) spoke only about how the RF had blessed them by changing them into godly people with “AH-mazing!” Lives. They were held at members houses … One was even held at Ashlawn)  I wonder if that’s what the wednesday service was supposed to be. 

      The blessing showers I went to were a mix of hilarious and disgusting. ALL focus on Gwen... We kept tally marks and while I don't remember the numbers, the number of times Gwen was praised compared to the number of times God was praised wasn't even close! They can say what they want, but they worship Gwen 🤷‍♀️

      I firmly believe that Braggie will never admit that any part of parenting is/was fun.  Look how she is now with Shiloh and the current crying babies and how much she really really really really doesn't want twins. 

      Braggie lives to be a martyr, so to her hardisthesameasgood. Good in the sense that the world will see how hard her life is, how painful the pregnancies, what a selfless martyr she is, what a wonderful mother she is because she endures all the hardness and pain and crying and twins, and martyrdom because Jesus. 

      Braggie will not have happy fun memories of motherhood because to her it's not happy, none of it At. All. Ever.

      I doubt seriously her children will have any fun memories of their childhoods with their buzzkill, suck out the all the joy, M is for Martyr mother.

      My mom can be a martyr at times. She’s definitely not like Braggie because she’s not narcissistic. But she does take on a lot in her life and she’s never had it super easy. She would have no idea what to do with herself if she wasn’t constantly caring for others and giving a lot of herself. I remind myself that she chooses this. So when she complains, I know it’s just part of who she is.

      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.
