Hee! There's a tuxedo sitting up on something in one of the pics who looks out of place, like a city slicker who came out to visit the cousins, got the ginger neighbour preggers, and never made it home again... but sometimes... he remembers.

I think it's the pink nose that makes him look out of his element.

omg ew ew ew

Food obsessed mancat just lunged in the dark and was making noise, so I flipped my lamp on and saw a fucking cockroach scurry. Cat kept going after it, and I instinctively yelled no but then quickly changed track to KILL IT KILL IT GET IT PIGGY, and he got it just as it was trying to run underneath his cat bed. And then he carried it in his mouth to the other side of the room and started chewing on it, and it took me a second to shoo him away so I could scoop up the dismembered pieces and flush them down the toilet.

:barf:

After I got back into bed, he came over and looked up at me, and ew ew ew there was a fucking cockroach leg barely stuck on his fur near his mouth.

:barf:

brb setting the entire city block on fire and dipping my cat in one of those lye dips they use in sheep and dogs and also not sleeping again for like a fucking week

I feel that way about earwigs, but the cat won't eat them.

I really, really, really hate cockroaches. I have a terrible visceral reaction to them. It is very difficult for me to kill the small ones, and the large ones I can't even look at, much less squish with a shoe. Just thinking about it makes my skin crawl.

Very glad my cat is a savage motherfucker because that thing was completely done for and dismembered in seconds, but :barf: the COCKROACH LEG ON HIS FUR.

You have katsaridaphobia!:

There are cockroaches here, one occasionally hears of them infesting a building, but I have personally not seen one since I lived in Florida 1957/58.

It is a psychological gateway into a lengthy laundry list of traumatic experiences: digging through a box of supplies in my outdoor playhouse when a roach zips out and scuttles up my leg, its spiky appendages pricking at my skin.

Finding a small dead cockroach tangled in my wet hair after a trip to the beach, and thereafter suffering recurring nightmares of picking roaches out of my hair.



ty asked me the other day if I would ever consider moving to a place like Georgia, so thank you for sharing that article and reminding me that my answer should be a big ol' fucking NOPE.

You lucky bastard.

Also stop giving me reasons to move to Canada.

I worked with a Canadian vet who went to AVC, and one of my coworkers ended up going there, and there's definitely a reason why you chose pictures from spring/summer to share. :v:

So, on the one hand, they have snowstorms so bad that the bridge to civilization gets shut down, but I will also likely never encounter a cockroach. :hmm:

PEI is gorgeous. It's basically one big farm with beaches.

That is very pretty.

Since I can't go there right now, I think the only other solution is to get more cats because lighting everything on fire is :airquote: arson :airquote: and :airquote: a crime :airquote: .

I think I mentioned this was going to happen, but it is now official: Nova Scotia is the first Canadian province to ban the declawing of cats entirely.

Quote
"I see declawing as a mutilation of an animal for no direct benefit to the animal. It's something that's done mostly to protect furniture," said retired veterinarian Hugh Chisholm, who has advocated for a declawing ban for years.

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/nova-scotia/nova-scotia-becomes-1st-province-to-ban-cat-declawing-1.4577216

Dr. Chisholm was my cat vet for a few years when I lived in the city. He was lovely. I still remember him colourfully explaining to me the habit of young cats to not curl their tails up when sitting near a curb, resulting in their tail getting parked on, causing the cat to leap forward violently, severely spraining their hindquarters in the effort. Which was why my young tom was temporarily rear end paralyzed.

I've become convinced that banning declaws is the only way to get it to stop. If it's legal, there's too much fucking pressure and politics forcing doctors who really don't want to do it to go ahead and do it anyway.
