It’s been a while since the Errand Boys were asked to run some errands, but @YYishere called on all of us to adopt a stray cat, in the Handbook for Errand Boys – please check it out here. http://www.dramabeans.com/members/yyishere/activity/787617/

I think we should all do this – it is for a good cause after all – and post the image of the cat we’ve adopted. Here’s my new cat.

    This can – of course – also be a picture of your real cat

        You have to turn it into a gif and then you can post it.

        Or you can post a picture on your fan wall and just tag me

          By reply section I meant comment section. I know you understood. I just felt like explaining my brain fart to you…

          I’ll try to gif trick.

      Ah thanks @cloggie – I don’t have any cats right now but I’ve had three that I loved and were with me for many long years. I’ll get their photos made into gifs and load them later. Mickey, Kato and Bert.
      I miss them, but I don’t miss the cat hair and litter boxes…. but I still miss them.

        I love my 2 cats but I will NEVER miss the rude and obnoxious way they wake me up at ungodly hours of the morning. n e v e r.

          I’m now using an interactive cat feeder for my cat’s dry food and that has stopped him from waking me up. It’s been such a good result! I’m not a fan of meowing at 4am

            First I got a Petsafe timed feeder, which meant that Mr Cat got fed at 4am, as he liked. Then I moved to Doc & Phoebe’s mouse shaped feeder, where you fill fake mice with food and hide them around the house. I think it’s amusing, Mr Cat thinks it’s fine and no longer meows for his food

    I currently have 2 strays. Well, not strays any more, but you know what I mean. And they are tired of me being gone to do errands and are looking forward to the view from the rooftop 🙂

    There have been a couple others — you are looking at my first one in my avatar.

    I’ve posted about the 2nd here
    http://www.dramabeans.com/members/lordcobol/activity/234594/

    BTW, he eventually settled down and became to closest I’ve had to a normal cat. (1st was abnormally affectionate, intelligent and polite, 3rd is dumb and uncoordinated, 4th is unusually timid even by cat standards).

      That’s a great cat story!

      I posted a picture of my real cat (a stray who I’ve had for just over a year) in the response to YY’s post.

      @lordcobol – thank you for a big laugh this morning! How did I miss that? You are a very funny writer…
      Now I’ll have to write about my cats that kept me company for a total of 22 years.

      Yes, I think it’s perfectly fine to adopt a stray rabbit too

    Stray no. 1 is 8 years old and was spoiled to the max for the first 4 years of her life ‘as the only child’. Now that she has a little human around and another stray she is moody and grumpy. However exactly at 8pm each night she will jump on the sofa to stare with ‘the most affectionate eyes’ at her dad and me, asking for pats. She prefers to sit on my hip, with half her body of top of me and the other on the sofa while I watch my kdramas.

    Stray no. 2 was picked up from the shelter as a skinny, underfed and a super tiny kitten. I had to nurse him 24/7 to bring his weight to an acceptable limit. He is now 4, larger than an average cat, and has the nickname of ‘wanna be puppy’. He likes to bring his 12 kilos of fur muscles atop my chest, nose touching my nose, while I lie on the sofa and watch my kdrama’s.

    I would love to adopt a cat, but my bird would probably kill me in my sleep.
    I did adopt a dog this year from the pound. They forgot to mention her severe anxiety and Houdini skills so it has been interesting. Plus, and hate to say this about a fellow female, but pretty sure she has been getting by on her looks. Lol. But she is mine now 🤷‍♀️
