a thread for crazy cat ladies! I thought maybe just pics of your own cats, and if there's not enough then just any old cat you can find!

I have 8. Technically only 5 are mine, the others think they live here. Mostly because I feed them with everybody else and they never seem to leave!

Hi ShetlandPony (waving). Yes you are right. Honestly the titles get really confusing....and add to that I'm Catholic but my Mum's family come from the Anglican communion (my Mum converted to Catholicism). My Mum spent her working life in ecumenism so surrounded by all sorts! In the Anglican Communion a Vicar is the same as a Parish Priest in the Catholic Church, but in Ireland a vicar is usually called a Rector. The Dean in the videos has been given a special job in a Cathedral, and the Dean title would be more elevated than that of Vicar, so yes they should call him Dean.

Seems a very nice sort of Dean to me-ow! Hug

Thanks for the confirmation, FF. I did learn a thing or two from Anthony Trollope (Barchseter Series filled with characters of various ranks in the Church of England.)

Get well wishes to Miss Felix.

Good morning, Cat Lovers. Miss Felix will be OK. It is an allergy reaction. She was a very good cat at the Vet's. She usually tries to bite and scratch and growl. They took the lid off the carrier and left sitting on her pillow in the carrier. She let the Vet examine her face and was such a sweet cat. She hasn't done that in YEARS.

she came with a sister who was way too scared to have a personality at the shelter but who has a giant personality now. She was a runt and very standoffish. Now she likes to get under the covers with me in the middle of the night and politely scratches the sheet by my chin or taps my face till I lift the covers up. She also likes me to make water hazards in the bathtub for her to play with, knock over, spill, etc. When I take a bath she will step onto my knee to get closer to the water....

Santabarbarian, I love Nadia's enthusiasm for sheets and water hazards. She sounds like a clever kitty.

FF! Wouldn't it be great to name a cat Mrs. Proudie? (The bishop's wife in the Barchester chronicles for these who are wondering.) How about John Bold, Septimus (Mr. Harding), Or Miss Dunstable?

By the way petite1, I have to say that I think Midnight Louie is one of the best cat names ever. So cool.

Kathindc, 'And Charlie be like, "He's behind me isn't he?" ' Hahahaha! Fantastic photo and caption.
