So, a funny thing happened on the way to the forum vet. I chose to get Sally Von Schtupp's heartworm preventative from the SPCA instead of our vet, because it is tres cheap there. *cough* It is impossible for me to go to a shelter and not want to bring home all the babies. For the record, I did not adopt all the babies.

This lovely young man did come home with me. His previous owners had him, another cat, a dog, and kids, and moved. And left him at the shelter. :( BUT YAY FOR US. He's four, lovely, super affectionate, and came with the name "Bootsie." We are attempting to jazz that up as "Master Bootsie "McLovin" Collins of the Funkadelic." That is what his official papers read. HEEEE. (Which is only slightly longer than my sister's grey tabby, who is officially named Greg the Subsititue Philosphy Teacher.)

Here is Bootsie McAWESOME chilling out in our bathtub. It's very cool and hidey in there.

Ms. Hope (full name: Hope comma A New colon Episode Four) ventured in this morning to check out the "new cat smell." Actually, she came in because she smelled his food. He came up behind her and checked out her hinter smells, and she looked back at him and went back to sniffing his food, then did an IMMEDIATE DOUBLE TAKE and jumped back. Ahahaha. They are still nervously checking each other out, but no hissing or such.

(It should be noted that Hope is our resident Ambassador to our sovereign nation of Eh-Stoney-a. She greets all newcomers, passes out pamphlets for the touristy site-seeing trips, and offers coupons for reduced travel rates. She also handles all treaties and disputes through mreowing and biscuit making. It's a one-two punch of solution, that's what.)

"Why, hello. I see you noticing my feathery toes and tail and belleh. Yes, yes, I am used to the oohing and ahhing. I am beautiful, but I do not let it go to my head. You may caress."

I've decided that instead of an R&B voice (what I imagined his kitty voice to sound like) he has a Pepe LePew voice. "Ze sauerkraut does not run from ze corn beef! I am ze snake, and you have charmed me..."

Sally is DYING to go lick his head, but Bootsie is not to keen for that just yet. Oh, Sally. They can't all be your babies. (She's been bringing her duck-baby all over this morning as if to say, "Why, I have other species as children, there is no reason why I cannot have you, too! Just...one...leeek!"

New behaviors observed as of this typing: he is a SUCKER for head scritches. To the point of almost doing a forward somersault to get your hands where he wants them. Ahahaha. As soon as you get a good scritch going, he immediately flops onto his side and begins purring. And then come the biscuits. He has ENORMOUS paws, so i think he's making baguettes, not biscuits. <3 <3 <3

Awwwwwwww! He's so handsome! I want to pet his fluffiness!

(This is why it's a good thing I stopped working at a no-kill shelter, though. There's a reason I ended up with so many pets. *cough*)
Jul. 2nd, 2008 04:04 pm (UTC)
HE IS SO FLUFFLY, T. I lerve him.

Our local SPCA is a no-kill, too. The Mr. has to physically restrain me sometimes from bringing them all home. They just want lovings!! <3
Jul. 2nd, 2008 03:57 pm (UTC)
YAY for rescuing pets! There are people here who think we need another cat: these people do not include me, the existing cat, or the larger dog.

The vote is ten to ten on a foot count, and so far that's enough.

Julia, small house, too much stuff, too many feet is my party's platform.
Jul. 2nd, 2008 04:05 pm (UTC)
Hahahahaha. My Mr. belongs to your party it seems. (But then someone climbed into his lap and made biscuits and purred and won him over to our affiliation.) HEE.

Very nice. He reminds me of the army cat we had when I was kid. We were living in Germany at the time. And this cat (Spooky) had been passed around from one army household to another as they'd pack up to head back to the States. We had him two years then kindly passed him on. He was awesome.
Jul. 2nd, 2008 04:06 pm (UTC)
Awwww, Spooky!! I love that he got to stay in his home but take on boarders. :D What a sweet story. I love kitnits. <3
Jul. 2nd, 2008 04:00 pm (UTC)
Eeeeeeeeeeh! *skritches and skritches*

I want a kitten so badly, but it's taken Kaatskill roughly eleven years to warm up to Goldberry, so. Yeah.

Jul. 2nd, 2008 04:07 pm (UTC)
Awww, Kaatskill! Get with the program!! I shall share my kitnit with you, then. *holds out for pets and lovings*

Master Bootsie "McLovin" Collins of the Funkadelic is a lovely cat, indeed! He's gorgeous, especially in that last picture. I just want to rub that belleh.

So, do you think if I stood in the window at the SPCA and looked all cute and shit, you'd adopt me? I can be quite fetching, I'll have you know, and word on the street is that I have a few tricks that will blow your mind.

WATCH as she sits in front of the computer!
MARVEL at the laundry that continues to pile up!
WONDER at how she manages to trip without even moving!

How am I still single? I DON'T KNOW, EITHER. Ahahaha.

<3 <3 <3
Jul. 2nd, 2008 04:08 pm (UTC)

And Bootsie LOVES his belleh to be rubbed, which is different from Darthanne and Hope, so YAY.
Jul. 2nd, 2008 04:03 pm (UTC)
What a beautiful boy!

And Hope is pretty too!
Jul. 2nd, 2008 04:08 pm (UTC)
Oh, Sharkie he is SO pretty. <3 <3 And sweet and cuddly!! YAY US!

Thank you for Hope - we find her to be quite fetching. :D
Jul. 2nd, 2008 04:06 pm (UTC)
I love his name!!! You name your kitties awesome things.

My boy's official name is Gord, but in my head he's SuperGord! of the Not-So-Tragically Hip. Because he gets his name from Gordon Downie of - you guessed it - The Tragically Hip.

Also, Hope is gorgeous and clearly intrigued, and Sally sounds like a wonderful little creature. Bootsie's gonna have a very cool life with you.
Jul. 2nd, 2008 04:09 pm (UTC)
SUPERGORD! I am quite fond of that - and I'm pronouncing it, "SUP-er-GOOOOORD!"

We hope Bootsie is happy with us - all the animals are quite intrigued by him and are waiting for him to come out and join the party. :D

So fluffy! So cute! So much awwwwww. And Ms. Hope looks like a great ambassador. :)
Jul. 2nd, 2008 04:10 pm (UTC)
SOOOOO much aww!! Hope makes a fabulous ambassador as she is fluent in both Cat and Dog as well as able to make a hearty attempt at Bird (but unfortunately for all the wrong reasons.) Hahaha.
Jul. 2nd, 2008 04:09 pm (UTC)
Awwwww! This post cheereth me up.

*snuggles new cat*

Ummm, it is okay if I snuggle your cat, right?
Jul. 2nd, 2008 04:12 pm (UTC)
Not only is it okay, it is highly encouraged by both human and Bootsie alike. (He is most snuggly and we've just learned that he likes to be carried about like a newborn. D'AWW!!)
Jul. 2nd, 2008 04:19 pm (UTC)
oh, isn't he by-ooo-ti--ful! He looks very dignified and not the least bit tempted by the toes on the right of this picture.

Yay to you for rescuing this worthy Master Bootsie "McLovin" Collins of the Funkadelic. you BOTH deserve head scritches.

Jul. 2nd, 2008 04:32 pm (UTC)
He is not tempted by the Mr.s toes, except to rub his face on them, eliciting a high pitched giggle. I mean, a very manly giggle. *G*

I just stepped out of the shower and he sat on the mat waiting for me. "Zis water shambair - she ees not your new lahv, for it eez I! Mastair Bootsie! Now. Love upon me."

Awww *pets the fluffy* He looks nice and not homicidal like my BFF's cat, who wants me good and dead. *lol*
Jul. 2nd, 2008 04:34 pm (UTC)
He hasn't a homicidal bone in his body. We think. HEE.

ZOMG, beware the Angry!Cat!!
Jul. 2nd, 2008 04:29 pm (UTC)
1. I am in LOVE with your Funkmeister. I actually hear his Barry White voice from here and I can't get enough of his love.

2. Hope looks EXACTLY like my Leyla. Exactly.
Jul. 2nd, 2008 04:35 pm (UTC)
1. ME. TOO. Yesterday I gave him a Smoov B type voice, but this morning it had decidedly turned into Pepe LePew. *shrug* Ze cat will speek as ze cat will speek, non?

2. Which means Leyla is AWESOME and PERFECT. <3

Gorgeous new kitty-boy! My husband has to restrain me whenever I see the adoptable kitties at the PetSmart - they work with local shelters for adopt-a-kitty days, and it's SO HARD not to walk away with a new kitty. Alas, the constraints of apartment living, a lease that only allows two cats, and a DamnCat of Doom (in the icon) who may kill us all in our sleep for brining in a newcomer keeps the feline family from growing.

*skitches to Bootsie, the Bootster, the Bootsmeister, EL BOOTSITO!*
Jul. 2nd, 2008 04:42 pm (UTC)
We are Kindred Spirits when it comes to being crazy cat ladies. (I want all of them!!)

Hahaha, your Damn Cat of Doom is quite similar to our Darthanne. (She is not interested in making his acquaintance as of yet.)

HAHAHA; El Bootsito! I LOVE THAT. :D

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.

Time Wot It Is
