    When the cat is meowing because it's hungry or wants to go out, that's regular meowing. But when it's meowing a greeting, or meowing at you while you talk to it, or while you
    pet it, then that's talking. At least that's what we call it in my house.

    Yup, my cats are named after Buffy & Angel characters... here's the story of Doyle though since it's a little creepy:

    I brought Doyle home from the pet store on Thursday, December 2, 1999. I was torn between naming him Doyle or Oz. I loved both of them. I decided that he was a Doyle, and he settled into that name. The following Tuesday, December 7, the onscreen Doyle was killed off. Kinda freaky, eh?

    Willow came by her name quite easily. When she arrived on my doorstep, it was freezing cold (-40 F/C they're both the same... damn cold!) and someone had abandoned her in the area. She was soooo skinny, and was missing the fur on the front of her legs right down to her toes. I scooped her out of the snowbank, brought her in the house while Doyle sounded as if someone was killing him with the racket he was making!!! I kept her segregated in the spare room, but I basically took one look at her, knew that I was going to be using a Buffy/Angel character, and she was too tiny and whispy to be called anything other than Willow.

    (BTW, when I got my fish, I tried the Buffy thing, but I couldn't find a name that suited him until I got to my CSI DVD collection & settled on Grissom - it's perfect!)

    Here are a few pics for you:

    Xander: Damn it! You know what? I'm sick of this crap. I'm sick of being the guy who eats insects and gets the funny syphilis. As of this moment, it's over. I'm finished being everybody's butt monkey! ("Buffy vs. Dracula")

    Mellon: What adorable kitties. They look like they could be trouble I can't believe that your fighting fish is still alive. I wanted to get one but didn't think he would live long with my kitties around.

    gabriel: "bake your brains" Mr. Tootles has only done that once or twice. I guess the lightbulb wasn't facinating enough. BTW, I love your sig line and new photo of Mona giving the evil eye!

    Stars and CCL: Yes, there's definitely a difference between a meow and a talking to! If an evil eye, a confrontational stance, and certain tone are involved, you know which is which!

    ArchieComicFan: You treated the dog BEFORE the cat! Oh-Oh. MAJOR faux-pas

    I don't give my kitties bacon. But they got some more tuna juice this week, only it had oil and broth instead of being packed in water. Mr. Tootles hates the oil land can't stand it on his lips. He now avoids it. So I felt bad for him when Gracie got a double-helping and I gave him some broth from the beef noodle soup my older sinister made. oooo. We have a winner here!

    I'm now on Benedryl with cortisone cream on my wrist. Mr. Tootles has not outgrown his biting tendency and bit me really good early one morning. It's like a dracula bite: with two holes nearly an inch apart. It got red and swollen and the pharmacist was not impressed. But I still love him. Tootles, not the pharmacist!

    Everyone says I should scold Tootles but I'm half asleep when he does it and he's so quick it's done before I can do anything about it. Besides, they only leave SMALL scars

    misskitty: Grissom is still alive because he's safe in my office on my desk - the office out of the house! I absolutely love that picture, and the other one of Willow that I posted is the look on her face when she discovered Grissom! My babes aren't really trouble... Willow's just one small, chubby, hairy suck who pets herself on the furniture if you're not around; and Doyle's a complete mama's boy. He is wherever I am... Who needs a man???

    This is a MUCH better picture of Doyle.

    Ok, my Tigger has a new habit- every morning when I hit the little girls room, I am usually half blind, deaf, and dumb, and in the summer, no one is up but me when I am getting ready for work. So, silence, golden silence. Yesterday when I start my routine turning on the bathroom light, I am greeted by Tigger curled up in the sink basin greeting me with a very cheerful "Mehhh! Mehh!" - (He does NOT meow, he "meh's"!- loudly) Usually I never see him till I get home from work, as he likes to sleep in with the boys. Again this morning, I am greeted in the same manner! It is sooooooooo cute, and I swear I am becoming a morning person because he really cheers me up! And you GOTTA love a cat that NEVER wakes you up and ALWAYS lets you sleep in! All of my friends and family's kitties routinely force them up way earlier than they would like so they can get fed. My baby is as lazy as me!
    Go Tigers!

    My cat, Doyle, has a bladder condition called Interstitial Cystitis. It can mimic the symptoms of crystals, but isn't caused by crystals. The vet has him on low magnesium, diet food (Iams, Eukanuba, the really expensive crap they sell from their office... ) Everytime I go to Pet Valu here in Toronto, they are always trying to shell their own brand on me. They're now touting this new weight loss formula as one that makes them feel fuller, made with 'human grade' products, etc. I asked if it's low mag? They don't know... if you don't really know about your product, then you shouldn't be pushing it on people. Everytime they give me a sample it ends up in the trash. I shop from the same store regularly, and you'd think that I've told the guy time & again that my cat has a very expensive bladder condition that I'm not playing around with, so don't bother telling me about the newest thing... grrrrr
    Mellon, I've been shopping at www.onlynaturalpet.com for my Iams and now I found Merricks, the magnesium is guaranteed no more than .025%, Joey & Mona like the California Roll and the New England Boil. I read the descriptions of the foods and I think I'll buy some for me to eat. Doesn't seem overly expensive to me either. Might be worth checking out.

    My little foster no more Boboliscious is developing a joy of stuffing my blanket in her mouth, and then spitting it out, then running around and using her paws to stuff more in her mouth, then pull it out, until my blanket is soaked in cat spit.

    She also enjoys wrapping her little paws around my arm, plutting her head in my palm, and falling asleep licking my hand. Little nut job

    I'd rather have 50 of these little furry nut jobs than one human.
