Thought For The Day

Comfortable cat perch to
sit on at the front window to
watch the world go by...

Electric food dispenser that
automatically gives you your
meal every 6 hours...
$60


Electric water fountain that
continuously flows to give you
fresh water whenever you want it...

In-between meal snacks
from the dishes in the
kitchen sink...

Always having a warm place to live,
fresh water to drink

Priceless

Poor little cold kitty!
Banjo is sure lucky to have you!!!

Deb said...

This speaks volumes to me. I see it everyday. I have increased the food at the warehouse and I see three that have been around for years still coming for a meal. Give that gorgeous Banjo a hug for me.

I always wonder how the animals manage outside in the cold. I wouldn't last more than a few hours. I remind my own pampered pets that they're very fortunate to be inside where it's warm and dry and not to have to worry about having an empty tummy.

Sandra said...

so that is what gets in the trash bags our neighbors put out... we see them torn open a lot.
now we know your cats are very well taken care of...that is a lot of cool gear...

Terrific post Catherine. Too bad our kittys don't know how good they have it or maybe they do. We have lots of strays around and despite the fact that HB does not agree I have fresh water and put out "crunchies" for them. =^..^=
Hope you have a happy day too!

It's me said...

Banjo is a lucky cat !!...she know that i think so....love from me...xxx..

Pantherka said...

Great post Catherine.
Have a nice day!
Greetings.

Brian said...

Yes, that all says sooooooo much.

Fuzzy Tales said...

Oh, no, that makes me heartsick.

That's how Toby came to my attention--he was digging in my garbage on a weekly basis one March, oh, it'll be four (?) years in 2013. I started putting out dry food for him (and all the other cats, apparently), and so it has gone. At least I know Toby gets unlimited dry now, plus a canned breakfast and supper, and he has his insulated "house" on my step, if he wants it.

I hope someone in your neighbourhood will take pity on this poor little one.

Heather said...

Beautiful.... but sad... my heart breaks for all the homeless animals out there who are there because of human neglect/cruelty!

Anesha said...

Great photos of Banjo!!! Do hope that black and white cat has a lovely warm home to go to. Hope you and Banjo have a great weekned. PS how did you get Banjo to like his water fountain? Skipper hated hers so we had to give it away. :( Hugs Anesha

GreatGranny said...

Handsome Banjo is another blessed kitty. I do hope the outdoor kitty is OK.

poor baby.

Susan said...

Don't you just wish we could take them all in, and give them a warm, safe home? Poor little thing.

Banjo, count your many blessings big boy!

HARLEQUIN said...

amazing post! Have a great day!

BeadedTail said...

Loved the photos of Banjo! Of course now I feel sorry for the poor guy outside. Hope he has a warm place to go.

poor kitty...

Katy Noelle said...

Sigh.... we seem to have picked up a feral barn cat.... and a skunk! I think my MIL is feeding them both. The trouble is, the cat may be getting the over abundance of mice but, now, also, I haven't seen a chipmunk in ages - just lots and lots of squirrels left. We can't catch the cat and we shouldn't - David and I are literally deathly allergic. and, as for that skunk.... yes! It is, indeed, possible to go too far in one's kind heartedness to the lost and stray animals in this world!!! =/

Wonderful post, Cat!

xxo

Katy Noelle said...

Oh, I didn't say... the trouble with the cat is that it's going to get so cold soon enough... I wish it had a real home! =(

troutbirder said...

Its the life alright.... and our cat has been my "retirement" role model for some years not. :)

S. Etole said...

Maybe Banjo needs a companion?!

Ann said...

Banjo is so lucky to have all those creature comforts. Too bad those other cats aren't so lucky

The Smiths said...

Banjo is a very lucky boy!

We used to get a stray cat coming into our house at night. Our 2 boys let him eat their food, drink their water & even sleep with them, but he would soon run off when we got up... This carried on for a couple of years & none of our neighbours knew him, then he just disappeared - we haven't seen him for over a year (he would wait outside our kitchen window until we went to bed), but at least he didn't go through any harsh winters here...

Hope that kitty in your photo is ok.

K&S :)

Eileen said...

Banjo is lucky and I'm sure he knows it well.

Poor boy in the snow...I hope he's just checking the garbage and actually belongs to someone who cares. (probably not, but I can hope, can't I?)

P.S. I've heard rumors Olive Garden is coming to Regina soon...probably in the east end. If it happens, and you make into the city, we'll have to try to get together!

Mr. Black said...

I hope that black and white kitty has a home to go to. From the photo, he seems well fed. I hope so.

Tammy said...

Poor kitty:( I had to cover my cat's eyes so she didn't see all the great stuff your cats have:)

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Catherine,
Banjo has it made and he knows that!
Hugs to you,
Mariette

Becca said...

Our kitties really have it made don't they? That poor little kitty at the end. :-( I would take them all in if I could!

CricriCat said...

Ils en ont de la chance ces petits chats !!! Bon week-end Catherine. Biz. CricriCat

Pam said...

I know, it makes me so sad. I would save them all if I could.

Linda R said...

Poor little fella!! That's so sad to see. My mom feeds about 15 stray cats.. But at least it's a little warmer here in the desert.

Hugs

Christine said...

Our cat Slippers was a stray. He scratched at our door for a few days. I told everyone ignore him we already have a cat, then we gave him leftovers, now, he has a nice warm house in our garage, a full cat bowl and water and comes in for cuddles throughout the day. I think he appreciates all that he has, but he still prefers the leftovers.

Jen @ Muddy Boot Dreams said...

My heart breaks that there has to be any stray animal starving out there. People can be so cruel to strays, they need to be fed, and watered also.

Bootsie is only one in a long line of cats that showed up at our door. He choose to stay with us forever.

Cat said...

So true Catherine!!! Poor outdoor kitty :-(

Diane Cayton-Hakey said...

We haven't seen a stray animal in our neighborhood in the five years we have been here. Thankful for that. Hope that kitty found a warm place to rest for a while.

Tammy said...

Banjo sure is a lucky kitty. Poor outside kitties! I have about 7 I feed now and when I cross around to the next block, there are soooooooo many more ... and babies being born right and left. What a hard life they have.

Lin said...

Aw, poor kitty. We have kitties in the parking lot at work. They somehow find shelter and food, but I still sneak them leftovers from our meals and leftover kitty food that my two have snubbed. Oh, I wish I could give them all a home!
