Here’s Enkidu being happy in my husband’s lap.
just more photos of the kittens and some of our cats.
So, we did just like Astreja said not to, and named them.
and yes, they are staying with us.
The little critters are getting bigger and stronger, so they have managed to climb up most things in the spare room we have them in.
And some photos
Here are more videos of the foster kittens. Against astreja’s advice, I have named them since I got tired referring to them as the “orange kitten”, “the other orange kitten”, “the brown tabby kitten and “the other brown tabby kitten”. So we have Ulysses, the orange kitten with the white socks (and my husband’s pick of the litter literally), Goose, the orange kitten without the white socks (and honorary flerken), Porthos the dark brown tabby kitten and Hobbes, the lighter brown tabby kitten.
Since these are up on Youtube and I entertain myself by ripping apart theist claims there, the poor frustrated theists have to attack the fact that I’m taking care of kittens since they have nothing else.
Here are a couple of videos of the kittens. They have their eyes open, but a couple of them have a little conjunctivitis, so we’ve been keeping their eyes clean.
Cleo has finally given birth, on July 12-13. This isn’t the greatest picture but you can see the four new baby cats. There are two orange tabbies and 2 dark ones. They all seem to be the classic tabby like their mom. Cleo and kittens seem to all be fine.
We have a foster momma cat and soon to have kittens. She showed up in our garden. I had thought she was a male kitty, thanks to a couple of fluffs of fur on her butt but she had a secret. Her name, for the moment, is Cleo. She’s a classic tabby with the whorls of color on her sides, rather than the stripes like most of our others. Once the kittens can eat on their own, the Humane Society will take them so they can find homes.
I also was able to remove a kitty from an idiot neighbor, and took her to the Humane Society. It broke my heart that I couldn’t keep her, but the very nice people at the shelter said she would be okay since she was young and friendly. I am a misanthrope with reason.
And a picture of our goofy cat Apollo who is sleeping under the coffee table.
It’s been a good spring for our flowers. The company I worked for this spring ended up going on hiatus dependent on a new owner. So, if it starts up again, I have job; if not, oh well. I’m using the time to tidy up the garden amongst other things.
and here’s a couple of cat pictures, and one of a beer I made. It’s Northern Brewer’s Lime Tree Lager and it is astonishingly good. This is the first lager I’ve tried. I added some lime zest to strengthen the lime flavor.
Recently, I’ve been demonstrating how a couple of conservative Christians fail. Those familiar with my blog and those of others will recognize the screen handles of “colorstorm” and “silenceofmind”. Over on SOM’s blog, I’m addressing their nonsense and the poor fellows can’t keep from “liking” my comments.
Alas, I didn’t grab poor CS’s like since he’s removed it, but I do have his quote “Count me in too club among the throngs who ‘like’ the comments by good atheists when they dare to make fools of themselves on a world wide stage.”
and here’s dear SOM’s words “It takes courage for you to venture into “enemy” territory and speak your mind (such that it is).” It would be courage if these poor dears weren’t so impotent. Alas, for CS and SOM, there is nothing to fear from them. Oh and hi, SOM, since you are following my blog yet again. He makes 661. Alas it isn’t quite yet 666 followers. 😀
Oh and SOM has this peachy claim: “
Club, Reading the Bible cover to cover all by yourself is useless. And you did useless twice. I did useless once and learned my lesson. Jesus tried and failed to explain the meaning of the Bible to the Jews of his day. Like them, you don’t understand the Bible because you choose not to. You anthropomorphize God because that is all that will fit in your atheism-debilitated mind.
I cannot speak for the Great Lion, but I began learning the meaning of the Bible from scripture scholars and decades of study and contemplation. I think we fully comprehend the Bible when we get to heaven.”
I do love me a Christian who says that reading the bible by oneself is worthless. Per SOM, you have to have a human involved and per SOM, his omnipotent, perfect god is a failure. Tsk, such a puny god.
Now this rather bizarre behavior from our conservative Christians does remind me of one of my favorite Key and Peel sketches:
I also felt like putting up some cat photos too.
