Bandito

Hi, this is my boy, Bandito. He sleeps on anything around where I am at. I got him from my sister after he was injured by climbing into the engine of her car. He has one hind leg that has no feeling, but it doesn't slow him down. He is my hugger baby. - Becky P.

Good morning! Bandito is so handsome! What is he laying on?! lol He looks so relaxed whatever it is! I love his little black nose!

Kim said...

Wow! All I can say is WOW! He is so beautiful! His coloring and markings are so unusual! He looks so soft and I just want to pet him. He does look awfully relaxed. He looks to be in the most uncomfortable potition! LOL!
Kat, with the name Bandito, I immediately thought of you! LOL! Hooray for Skippy John Jones! He does have such a cute black nose.

Kim said...

Kat, just read your comment from last night. YES! We have to get caught up! Maybe later this morning if you have time. Next week is the 2 hour season finally!!!!

Emma's Kat said...

Hey Kim! Yes, I thought of my favorite little kitty, El Skippito! I'll have to scan a pic of the book so you can see it. Have you checked it out yet? And yes, can't wait until next week for the finale!!

Claire said...

What an adorable cat-so comfortable just about anywhere. Wish I slept as well. I'm glad he is ok after his accident. My daughter lives in a condo near a area where there are feral cats and she always taps her horn in the morning and waits a minute to make sure no cats or kittens are sheltering there. Bandito looks like a snuggle bug.

bandito knows how to relax. it is always so sweet when kitties want to be close by while you are doing things. love his markings also, so unusual. love the shades of brown on his body. i bet he is wonderful to snuggle with.

HA!! And you thought I was up early yesterday!! This morning(at 1:45am) I was woken up by "#%$@*&$#@ MEEPSIE!!" from Paul. He had gotten up and was in the office when Meepsie pounced him. Evidently there were no mousies in the garage to chase, so she came back up to attack the tall brazen mousie in the office! Score: 1 cd drive broken(Paul left the drawer open and the chair fell on it), 1 trackball broken(fell off desk into spilled coffee), coffee everywhere(with cream and sugar, of course).

I had to wait around for KAT to get up!

GOOD MORNING FUZZ PACK!! Bandito is a lovely boy. He looks like he has some Raggy in him somewhere. Are his eyes blue? Years ago, we had a neighbor cat who had gotten mixed up with a car engine. It's amazing how cats(as well as others) adapt to what other people perceive as "handicaps!"

My dear Paul, who is a man who admits that he loves his cat, LOVES GA!! His favorites, other than science & airplane shows are GA and Crossing Jordan.

On the other hand, I like anything auto racing, all the CSIs, NCIS, Law and Order SVU and CI...as he says, "Oh goodie, more dead bodies!" At least I've learned NOT to watch any CSI whilst eating.

It's now Thursday, and I think I'm finally recovering from the weekend!!

momsbusy said...

meowmepurr's mumma - my husband races. i take pics. we do dragracing (1/8th mi. track) at nearby darlington raceway. it just reopened after many years of being closed. YEAH!

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Good morning, all.

Bandito is certainly handsome and relaxed. He does look like brown velvet, doesn't he. Love the markings on his sweet face, looks like a little stripe of white down his nose? Is he a big boy? What color are his eyes? Looks like a cuddle-baby to me.

Becky, you have a very cool cat, literally, looks like he's "chillin'".

riquel said...

He is beautiful! I can see why you named him Bandito, he looks like he is wearing a Zorro mask. He is very cute. What is it about a cat, that they seem to be able to get comfortable almost anywhere??

Rose said...

Mornin' FuZZ Family!
El Bandito seems to have the flexibility of a Yoga Master...It looks like he's laying on a baby blanket? I'm glad he's adapted to his disability okay. Looks like he's sitting side-saddle but Totally Comfortable, and I ALSO love his coloring! Thanks for sharing Bandito with us today, Becky!

danielle said...

Good morning Fuzz Pack!!! This kitty is so cute omg. I would love to reach in and pet!

Meowmepurr's mumma,
I am sorry to hear about that. When I get woken up I am usually being bitten by Spot. Hopefully you can catch a nap or something. Hope your day is better.

Linda-Kiara said...

Good morning fuzzers,

Bandito you are so gorgeous! I not sure what I like about you more; your little black nosie or the beautiful color of your fur on your back. It looks so soft and I want to give you a little fuzzing.

I will call you.....
THE BLANKET BANDITO! FUZZ

Looks like Bandito has a favorite blanket that he likes to lay on with sweet little carousal horses on it. Sweet dream Bandito.

Mannyed said...

Bandito (I LOVE THAT NAME) is very handsome! And I like his laid back approach to filing!

donna said...

Morning everyone,

Hi Bandito!

He looks just so soft. I'm sorry you had your accident, Bandito, but you look just fine now. More than fine, beautiful and content.

Woken up by Kona 3 minutes before my alarm went off. Paw (no claws) to the face. He wanted breakfast.

Gheeri's Servant said...

*ugh*

I was woken this morning by a pain in my side. My back was killing me. Why, you ask, is your back hurting when you're only 26? Well...... you see, Gheeri, through the years, has learned that after she takes her place behind my curled-up legs, eventually, I move. So when I begin to shift (in my sleep, I presume, because shes always behind my legs), she apparently moves, and curls right back up. Now, this morning, I wake up to a sharp pain, and something VERY loud meowing in my face. Tobias. Crap, he's learned about the comforts of sleeping in bed with the servants. I wake up with one cat behind my legs, and one right in front of my, so that before I can actually comprehend what is going on, I have a VERY loud Toby Meowing at me to wake up and pet him. :::sigh:::

Toby abd Gheeri are getting along just fine. Apparently, he is enamored of her. He follows her everywhere. When she comes to me for pets, he follows. She goes to the windowsill, so does he. It's funny, it's almost like GHEERI got a new pet, not us, LOL. Yesterday, Gheeri had the Midnight Crazies(c), and was running to their room (where the litterbox and toys and their mat is), and he ran after her, and tried to trip her (ever seen thoses animal planet documentaries where the cheetah trips the gazelle??? SAME THING!!!!)-she just kept running, didn't actually trip-but she knew what he was doing. LOL-I cracked up.

Banditio is SUCH a handsome boy! Soooooo glad he came out OK, a lot of cats don't even escape with their lives from the same thing. I bet it happens a lot in the states that get cold. Here they mostly get attacked by dogs or get hit by cars. So sad... But glad Bandito is livin' the good life! Looks like hes sleeping on a stack of books! Give him hugs for me!!!

donna said...

GS, that is really good news that Gheeri and Toby are getting along. Very heart-warming. :-) (Sorry about your back, though.)

And MeowMePurr, sorry to hear about your midnight escapades. I'm trying to not to laugh at your description of what all happened. That's not very nice of me at all, is it? :-)

donna said...

Seriously cute kitten over on cuteoverload.com. Got milk? :-)

Also, the Daily Puppy is pretty cute today too. A Yorkie/Pom mix.

Gheeri's Servant said...

OMG I know not all of you are SomC fans, but you have to see today's "I Hate Turtles". Too cute. kat, you would enjoy the flaming fight they're having in Tom's baby photo. Of all things, they choose to bash SomC in Tom's comments. Kat, you've seen Tom, you KNOW he's loved. I think it's ridiculous.

Gheeri's Servant said...

kat-you're such a nerd! (lol, I'm talking about last night's post on Mango, LOL)

Kathleen said...

GS-Sorry to hear about your back, Shadow usually ended up between my legs and I was unable to move at all-for fear of disturbing her!
Rosie Rose had the Midnight Crazies as I was going to bed-she still is not a bed snuggler-may come with time. Thump, thump up and down the hall attacking all kinds of invisible mice and bugs-hysterical to watch! Had a duck larger than her come up on the deck and her beautiful little eyes nearly popped out of her head.
Bandito! How beautiful! I'm concerned though, he looks a little stressed :)
Re SomC-Shadow LOVED to have socks put on her...no, not on her feet just over her back.

Karen C. said...

Bandito is such a beautiful color and he looks so soft. I love the way he's just draped over the stuff there. What a sweet cuddly boy!

Something I wanted to share...yesterday my kitty Midnight was tearing through the house with Cocoa, but somehow she ended up hitting her head really hard against the wall. She was hurting and terrified and hid under my daughter's bed. Of course, we wanted to get her out and check to see if she was injured, but she wouldn't move. Cocoa came running to check on his sister and ended up standing guard in front of her, growling if anyone came near. My daughter got out the cat treats to try to coax Midnight out, but she still wouldn't move. Cocoa picked up a treat in his mouth and put it down in front of her. When we finally got her out and determined that she was physically okay, Cocoa let Midnight have all the attention and even sleep in "his place" by my chest all night. It was so sweet! I've never seen a kitty so concerned for another one.

Kathleen said...

Karen-that is adorable "chicken soup for a cat lover's soul" story. I'm glad to hear that Midnight is doing fine.

Bluejay said...

I hope Bandito like petting. It would be impossible to resist petting that lovely, plushy fur. And his little mask is adorable.

Gheeri, it sounds like the kitties can be a pain lower down than your back. I sympathize. Until recently, Geoffrey always wanted to sleep lying across my feet. I was completely pinned down but I couldn't shift without getting serious protests. I had another cat who liked to get onto the pillow and put his face right into mine. Try to sleep with whiskers tickling your nose! Another of my cats once jumped onto the pillow and lay down on my face.

But, deep down, we don't really mind this stuff, do we?

Emma's Kat said...

GS, saw the arguement on SOMC. I have to agree w/you. If Tom didn't like being dressed up and all, he would not allow his person to do this. BTW, I too am sorry about your back. My Danny Boy always used to sleep on chest or on my pillow next to my head. He would (when on my pillow) lay his chin on my forehead. ::sigh:: I so miss him and his sleeping w/me. At the time I would sometimes be uncomfortable and wish he would sleep elsewhere! But, like the old saying goes, you don't miss it until it's gone! NONE of my kitties sleeps w/me now! Benji will occasionally get in bed w/me, but not for long. And Emma sleeps somewhere else. I don't even think she is in the same room when she sleeps at night. Oh well!

Bluejay - Got your pix! Will be posting in a couple of weeks! Thanks!

Karen - I too am glad Midnight's okay! One time...okay, 1st of all we have a loft room over our t.v. room. So, one day, Emma is sleeping on the ledge of the loft, like she always does. I'm sure you already know what I'm gonna tell you. She must've gotten startled awake and forgot where she was, cause, you guess it!...She fell! Right as I heard her and looked up down she came. She landed on her feet of course and ran under my dining room table. I was sooo afraid she had fractured something, but other than being startled and I'm sure it didn't feel that great, she was purrfectly fine! Nothing broken! So, now I'm paranoid about the loft, because she still sleeps there on occasion!

Gheeri's Servant said...

Everyone: I'm not saying I don't like it. I'm all too happy that Toby has decided to sleep with me. Our old MC Meeko used to do that, and I missed it so much when he was gone. The thing that troubles me is that he's ALOT bigger than Meeko was, and he kinda.... commands prescence on the bed (geez, that sounds dirty! XD )And doesn't let me move, as Meeko did. I guess I'll get used to it. I love having my 2 cuddle-bears.

Karen : so sorry about Midnight! Glad she's OK. I LOVE the relationship the 3 of them have.

kathleen : you are so right! Sounds like something right outta Chicken Soup!

Bluejay : Meeko used to do that! I would wake up several times to brush his plume-y tail out of my face. The other cat we lost, Punkie, Claimed her spot on my chest, and would often reach out a put a paw on my face, and I would wake up, smile, and go back to sleep (luckily she was the lightest of the group-6 lbs!)

Everyone: I know some of you don't like to be harassed, but I posted some important environmental issues in PdJ, if you help, I thank you. It would also be great if you spread the word.....

Kim said...

It's so nice here for a change! I took the kids to the park and just got home. They're A MESS! But everyone had a good time!

Oscar must join the Crazy Kitty Club, too. This morning, through the fog of my mind, I seemed to know that something was pawing at my bed, attacking my feet, and biting my toes (very hard). Slowly I came to and realized that the dream I thought I was having was actually Simon wanting me to get up. BUT WAIT, it's not Simon, it's OSCAR! This is not Oscar behavior at all! I figure that the poor cat must have to poop so bad! He only goes tinkle in the litterbox, he poops outside. Usually he'll stand in the hall and howl at the top of his lungs until I get up and let him out. So thinking I slept through that, I guessed that he was just beside himself and resorted to physical assertion to get me out of bed. OUCH! Anyway, I jump out of bed and run down the hall and fly to the back door, swing it open, step aside, and...NO CAT! OH NO, he didn't make it, he pooped on my bed! So I trudge back to my room, but before I even get to the hall, I see him. He's standing down the other hall, the one that leads to his food dish. And the look he shot me was "Dammit woman, get your lazy butt over here and feed me NOW!!!" OK, so now I'm awake and my cat is PO'd at me. I feed him, go back to bed, pull up my covers and am so happy that I still have an hour left to sleep...until...MOM, I'm ready to get up now! So that is how my day started, a crazy cat who woke me up, OUCH, and made me wake up my already early riser!

Kim said...

Loa's baby, Steppa, is on Kitten Picture today! What a pretty kitten. I can't wait to see her grown up picture too!

casper's mom said...

Hi Bandito, what a handsome cat you are. It looks like to me it's the back of a chair covered with a blanket and he is laying on it. Wonder what he is looking up in the file cabinet???

Cleo is cracking me up right now. Finished washing down my bedroom ceiling and she is having a ball running under the drop cloth and attacking my water bottle that I threw on the floor when I finished it. What a character.

Meowmepurrs, I also like all the CSI's and other programs you mentioned. Oh by the way did you watch last week's race yet??

rosie(who else!) said...

.ahem........here I am.............
this fuzz could start a site called: Cat on My Stuff!....I yhink yesterdays post looks like Bryan on Bagheeras' personal homepage........schnoort.......

roise(who else!) said...

..HYAK!.Kat1.I can't take the ADULATION........duzzafuzzaduzz....

Gheeri's Servant said...

Am I the only one confused??? LOL, Rosie, what on God's earth are you talking about?!?!?!?!

kim, so sorry you had a bad morning! Sounds worse than mine! Yes, Crazy Kitty Anonymous has quite a few members...
Anyone remember the Cat Rules(c) for Bedtime? : Always sleep on the human at night so he/she doesn't move much. They require as little room as possible. Pin your human against the wall or on the edge of the bed. It makes them feel secure. XD

Karen C. said...

I like the Cat Rules for Bedtime - very accurate! Usually Midnight pins my legs down and Cocoa has to lay so that his head is against my cheek and his body against my chest. He also must be laying on my arm, with my hand between his front paws so that he can lick it while he falls asleep. Grr, the big heavy one, only sleeps on my daughter.

Gheeri's Servant said...

oh, are you talking about the pic of Bryan sleeping on Gheeri???? LOL that lasted about 5 mins... then she kangaroo-kicked him to get off her... lol What a brat...

Gheeri's Servant said...

^^^^^sorry, forgot to mention that was meant for Rosie *blushes*

Gheeri's Servant said...

I CAN'T BELIEVE THEY GOT COMMUNITY FREAKIN' SERVICE!!!!! THEY SHOULD BE IN JAIL!!!!!!

katnippia said...

Good Afternoon Everyone !
Bandito, you are a very handsome, and lucky boy. You look like you could really sleep any where. Becky P. thanks for sharing his pic with us. Is he a Snowshoe? i only ask due to his coloring.

Emma's Kat said...

GS, what an amazing story! Mr. Kibbles (that was his name, wasn't it?!) traveled 15 miles to find his way home! Wow! Smart kitty! Glad he's home safe and sound!

katnippia said...

Gheeri's servent, that is totally messed up. I think they should get more than that my self. What mesasge is that going to send to others who mistreat animals. That they will just get a slap on the wrist for mistreating any animal. Hell, I moved from a state that animals didn't have a voice at all.

I am glad that Mr.Kibbles did make it home safe.

Sorry Kat1

Emma's Kat said...

Sorry for what, Katnippia???

donna said...

FB-alert: http://www.kittenbreak.com/4925

Rosie would be proud...

Gheeri's Servant said...

I agree katnippia. Very bad message. I'm glad Mr. Kibbles is safe, but, did you notice that the owner moved to feel safe? Thats not right. The judge seemed angry with them, but to convey the right messege to both the offenders AND others, they shouldv'e gotten some jail time. Even if it was like a month....

anyhow, good night all-TGTomorrow's F!!!!

donna said...

Another very unique looking cat:
http://www.kittenbreak.com/4850

Does anyone know what breed this would be?

Kim said...

Donna, he's a Flame-Point Siamese. He looks so different from mine and Kat's though. Our's are furrier than this one. He's very unique!

Kim said...

Hi Donna. He's a Flame-Point Siamese. Both Kat and I have one but this one is a hairless. He is VERY unique!

donna said...

Wow. I didn't even recognize him/her as a Siamese! I think the furless-ness threw me. I also thought his face was very pointed. As you can tell, I haven't ever been around very many Siamese kitties. Quite unique and rather handsome. I wonder if the picture is an indication of his personality and antics :-)

Thanks Kim!

Kim said...

Sorry Donna, I was having trouble posting. :)

donna said...

No worries :-)

donna said...

Weeks ago, I sent in one of Wiley's pictures (I think it's the same one that appeared on PdJ) to KittenBreak.com.

Well, they finally updated the website--resulting in all these comments to you as I scroll through the pictures in reverse order--and lo and behold, there's Wiley-girl!

http://www.kittenbreak.com/4501

But, wow, there are a lot of cute kitties and pictures in there.

Anonymous said...

Kat1, I'm glad you got the pictures. I hope they work out.

GS, I love the rules for cats and bedtime. Right on. (There's one more that some of my cats have followed - whatever moves under the covers, pounce on it.) Also, I completely agree with you about the cat-nappers. There should be VERY stiff penalties for abusing animals. Have you ever read about any of the research the FBI has done on serial killers? Every known one of them started with animal abuse.

I too am glad Midnight is OK. I know what a scare that is when you think one of the fur-buddies is hurt.

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Donna, Wiley is just beautiful. Love that I know her "story" from your blog.

Enjoyed reading the rules for cats and bedtime. Plan to read it to Missy Blue Eyes.

Kim said...

Donna, I just LOVE that picture of Wiley!!! That little nose is so precious!!! I'm so glad they posted it! Like ML, I think it's so cool that I know her too. Your cats have become so familiar and then to see one of them on a different site, it's like "Wow, I know that cat!"

Cecilia said...

He is a cutie.
