Happy Caturday, everyone! Celebrate wiv Baysment Cat! Even Baysment Cat takes Caturday off from the all-important task of harvesting souls.

On the home front, the felinoids (we call them felinoids because they always feel annoyed, no matter what you're doing) are welcoming the fall with sleeping, sleeping, and still more sleeping. Interspersed with a little ass-biting. Madu has eased up on his rodent extermination duties thanks to the presence of some hooty owls which appear to be nesting in a nearby tree. They're new to the area, or at least new of late. The first time we heard one, we thought someone was coughing.

Madu and Gojira NOT fighting for a change

In the event, they seem to be keeping the nasty little pocket gophers away, which delights the plants, no doubt.

We're hiking tomorrow, a four-mile hike, possibly, along a relatively easy trail. Slight elevations, a little scree, nothing too rugged.

Although we have our eye on a guided hike to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro for 2011. Slowly by slowly, as my people say.

Do cats suffer from sleep apnea? Two of the fattest in the Home Tribe are snoring so loudly these days, it's enough to wake a body from a sound sleep. Or deep sleep, anyway.

Stumble It!

I lecture a lot about gopher control and always recommend the ornge tabby cat as the best gopher cat.

Thanks a lot, Thomas! I visited your site and bookmarked you. The orange guy, Madu, is a good li'l gopher hunter. His sister, Gojira the Gray, prefers rats as big as herself. And the two of them gang up on squirrels all the time!~

Gray tabbies are my favorite, but orange tabbies rock too. Roooowl!

Hope your hike went well. Are you back yet?

Hiya, rudekitty! The orange boy and the gray girl are, believe it or not, brother and sister. (Mom was colour-blind. Or had lotsa boyfriends.)

The hike went great. Atrophied muscles are tired and use of painkillers is up slightly, but we made the four miles, despite some steepish terrain with plenty of scree. We're trying for five miles on the coming weekend!

Posting has been light due to disgust resulting from reading about bacterial/chemical warfare used in Manchuria and China in WW II. However, an ass-kicking is being prepared right now.
