Thanks, guess we're mostly busy, or forgetful these days. Smiley Sad

 

I've been trying to find replacement door knobs to match old ones in house; a few doors are getting replaced, so want them to match.  Apparently, Dexter has been bought out by Schlage; but the Schlage ones do not match the finish even close.  Looking for antique brass.

 

Anyone here use the lever type door handles?  Do you like them?  I'm looking at that option, and planning for the future when I'm disabled. Smiley Sad

Our weather hasn't been as warm as it was, but the milder weather is still very welcomed.  We have a couple of more days coming with tempe near and at 70 degrees.  But it was a nice preview of coming temps though.

Man do I love my guard cat. If your wondering, it's a Norwegian Forest Cat and when he get into the mode that he thinks he's in the forest again, it's bad for a burglar. He has a big cat tree that's in the front room(right behind a window that he can see at). Has to deal with an 8 year old chihuahua that hides under the blanket and barks a lot.

They are big!  I have read that burglars are glad cats don't make noise because they hear/see them before dogs do!

LOL, smart girl, and better than a human tech!

 

Jackie does not like my printer.  When it goes on to print, she comes running up from nowhere to the desk and starts sticking her hand in the paper feed!

 

Betsy sleeps on the printer (all-in-one) and is constantly printing diagnostics that I can't even get the software to do!

 

I've found that when my printer won't print remotely, it's because Betsy has turned it off!  Catkids, too funny!

They have thumbs, just not opposable ones. Smiley Very Happy

 

Polydactyls can have 6-7 cat fingers, instead of the usual 5. Smiley Wink

My parents got 2 Norwegian Forest cats after they saw mine. My dad was looking at several breeds and wasn't all that sure until he saw Toby. Got one of the breeders first Torbies and a Bi-color.

Well I do know, that the wood on the door of the cabinet is so light, the cat let's himself in so he can rest.

Yeah, they're pretty good at getting things open. Smiley Very Happy

 

@Pbert35, thanks for the photos, all beautiful!  Yours is the 1st photo?

 

Our cat, Jackie, has tons of fur between her fingers/toes like that; in fact, she broke a canine when running because she has no brakes!  We call her long feet fur, toe-hawks (like mohawk). Smiley Very Happy

Yes, the first photo is my cat, Toby.  The other 2 are my parents Weigies, Belle and Smudge. BTW, fur in paw is known as Toe trimmings. It helps on making the cat all weather(mostly cold weather). Toby considers himself the King of the apartment, so I had to make a crown.

I was going to ask about the crown, LOL!  And I learned something about cats I never knew, what long toe fur is called.

 

I'll have to find a photo of Jackie's furry feet, maybe she is part NF Cat?  All of mine are rescues. Smiley Sad

 

Have a question, does your cat get kinda gagged when trying to groom?  Jackie's fur is so long, it gets stuck on her tongue and she has trouble getting it un-stuck.  I've never had a cat with that problem before.

Well it quite possible of the cat being part NFC or Maine Coon(descendents of NFC dropped off by Vikings). NFC are great mousers and if you get a good mouse that you can put catnip in, the hunting instinct comes out. Female NFC's always seem to be furrier than the male. That's a real big with my parents Torbie NFC, Belle. My mothers solution was cutting the fur(even though she one of those Furminator's). A good way to help on that problem is use a damp wash rag and brush it across the cat's fur. A good bath with Cat soap in a bathtub works well for the problem too. NFC aren't as bad as Persians on get lots of fur on the tongue as well lots' of nats in the fur.

Jackie does play fetch, and loves catnip mice.  She's an expert bug hunter, too; even tackled the giant flying roaches we have down here!

 

We have another long-haired cat, but think he's more Turkish Van, and fur isn't as silky or as long as Jackie's.  He has a long ruff though, and it gets stringy; think it needs a trim to stay out of the water bowl.  I used a Furminator on him, Leo, and it ruined his coat.

 

Nobody around here would stand for a bath (except Leo), and I'd need a transfusion afterwards!

Well if you bath the cat in the bathtub, you'll never get  scraches. I'm sure it since I haven't trimmed his claws yet. If you use the kitchen sink, expect to sliced and diced by the front claws. There are 2 types of Furminators for cats, one for long hair and one for medium fur. Don't use the one for long hair since it takes a lot fur with it. A good luke warm damp wash rag will do the trick.

We have bathed Leo in the tub before, but it takes more than one person, and one person in the tub with him!  The Furminator we have is not for long hair since we wanted it to be used on any cat.

 

Prefer the waterless shampoos, ones that are like pop-up wipes, then do a good brushing.
