Brunswick

This is my Mom's cat, Brunswick. He's 10 years old and a real sweet cat!!! His fur is like silk and he's a talker! He loves his kitty treats and being loved by his humans! This is a picture of him hiding in the jungles of Louisiana. More specifically, my Mom's back patio!!! -Kim's Mom

Good morning! Welcome back Kim! You gots lots of catchin up to do, along w/Donna! Anyway, Brunswick...you're such a handsome boy! Does he have a speck of white on him anywhere, Kim?! Doesn't look like it!

Well, I won't be able to post till this afternoon...::sniffle:: J/K! It will kinda suck though, cause I probably won't get to come back on at all till then. Got a busy morning, watching the neighbors brats...er, KIDS I mean! lol Then I gotta hurry and get my son to Nana's and get my hair appointment by noon. I know, too much info. Info you could care less about! But I'm telling ya anyway! You know you'll miss me! :) hehehe

What a very handsome boy. I'm partial to black cats, having two and I love the way he is guarding his domain, with that casual but alert attitude.

danielle said...

He is really cute. I like his name Brunswick. He looks like he is enjoying his outside time. Do you hold conversations? Spot and I do. Its a lot of fun.

riquel said...

He is really pretty. I like the black ones, they seem so mysterious, and secreative, and they are great for Halloween! :o)

Holly said...

What a handsome boy!

kim - tell your mom that brunswick is absolutely gorgeous! that is a wonderful pic of him. his color pops out from the background.

i only visit tdk and look at the pics. never post/look at the comments.

not feeling well today. i have an upper respiratory infection that really wants to move down and become bronchitus (sp?). taking antibiotics. want to go home and sleep. z z z z z z

danielle said...

Today is Oreo's B-day!!!!!!!!!!!

danielle said...

Mom,
I hope you get home and go to bed and take care of yourself. Hopefully it doesn't progress. Do what the doctor says.

Good morning Fuzz Family!!!!!!!!

Emma's Kat said...

Moms - Get some rest! Whatever you do...don't send it my way! :)

Danielle - I thought Oreo already had his b-day. Was that just his party and today is his b-day day?

Kiiiimmmmmm....Where are you??

Manny said...

Brunswick you better be careful in the dark, someone might trip over you! I bet you are good at hide and go seek!

danielle said...

He had his party today is the actual day.

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Brunswick is a beautiful cat. Love the way he is guarding his domain. Love his name too.
Moms, you go home and get some rest. Antibiotics make you tired because they are fighting off the bad germs (at least, that's what I was told). Hopefully if you rest and let the meds do their magic, you'll feel much better tomorrow.

Kim said...

GOOD MORNING FUZZ FAMILY! HI BRUNSWICK!!! Actually, he calls himself Bunsick as he's still a baby (at least he thinks he is). B is the youngest of my Mom's two cats. He is ALL black and yes, in the dark it's very easy to trip over him!

I'm glad to be home and can't wait to catch up. I've not had time to do more than look at the cuties that I've missed over the last few days. There have been some very pretty kitties and interesting stories, I need to start reading!

Deb said...

Brunswick is beautiful! Love the name! Please pet him for me!

Moms--please feel better! Rest, recover!

ML--How is Bear today? How are you? Missy? Charley? -- might as well email me, want to hear about the whole family :).

Happy Birthday Oreo!

Gheeri's Servant said...

First of all.... Brunswick (love the name) is VERY handsome-then again, I'm partial to the blackies.. ;) Is it just me, or does he bear a resemblence to Kona? Donna, thoughts?

Second, KIM! GLAD YOU'RE BACK!!!!

Third, Happy Birthday Oreo!!!!

Forth, Busy, get some rest!!!

Fifth, ML, Is Bear doing any better?

Sixth, Dannie, how's Jake?

Seventh, Where's mumma?

*whew* I'm tired....

Emma's Kat said...

Lol...GS, isn't Jan leaving for Tucson? Is it Tucson?

ML - Yes, how is MBE? Her stitch out yet?

Updates everyone!! Pronto! ;)

Kim said...

OK everyone, I have lots of reading to do so I will do that, then I will post a monster of a long comment (you know how long winded I can be), and then we can all be on the same page. GS, I've only had time to skim your site as well. Ditto for you. OH, THANKS FOR POSTING SIMON! Ok, gotta read ladies!

danielle said...

Jake is doing ok he's still excited to eat when I get home. He is not drinking though. He is only eatin 2 jers at the moment. If I leave food out for him he won't touch it. I think I am going to offer him some dry food tonight. See how that goes.

Claire said...

Danielle, I know Jake is probably tired of having things forced on him but fluids are very important and when Simon had kidney failure, for the last two years of his life, I made sure to put just a little salt on his food (per our vet-but check with Jakes) because the salt made him more thirsty plus I kept an eye dropper and would occassionally give him fluids that way. There were other things the vet did but those were things we could do at home. We did have him two more years after the diagnosis so some of that must have helped.

danielle said...

Claire,
Thanks for the advise. I can get an eye dropper. He seems to be licking all the fliuds out of the food before he eats. So I know he is getting some fluids. I will check about the salt.

RIQUEL said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY OREO EOEO!!!!

donna said...

Morning all!

Hi Brunswick! You must be the distant brother to my Kona and to GS's Gheeri. So beautiful. And he does look more like Kona than our Maddie-girl.

He is so beautiful.

donna said...

Oh, I meant to ask... Can we find out how he got his name? Like all of you, I love the name.

Karen C. said...

He's just beautiful and also looks a lot like my Grr. What a nice picture too. I have such a hard time getting good pix of my 3 black cats. I guess I need brighter backgrounds. The only thing that comes to mind when I hear Brunswick is bowling, but I doubt this sweet fuzz is a bowler so I'm wondering the origin of the name too. It certainly is a handsome name for a handsome boy.

donna said...

Hi Karen,

Bowling? I don't know that connection. My first thought was New Brunswick -- NE Canada or something like that?

Karen, my bad. I can't believe I forgot about your black trio. You, too, are a member of the "black cat club".

casper's mom (Monica) said...

What a handsome boy you are Brunswick. You look like black velvet laying there. You stand out quite well in that bark you are laying in. Nice place to cool off in.

casper's mom (Monica) said...

Happy Birthday Oreo.

Hey Moms, get your rest. It will go down to bronchitis if you don't. I know first hand about all that. A year ago December I had pneumonia and was treated three times with anti-biotics when I finally got rid of it. When I did is, when I made myself lay in bed for about three days. I was thankful it didn't land me in the hospital and it could have. I have had respiratory problems all my life. I know how miserable you feel. Get well. Prayers for you.

Meowmepurr's Mumma in Washington State said...

I'm here! My plane leaves tomorrow morning at 7am. Just talked to my sister--the prediction is 108 and 50mph winds today. Tomorrow is supposed to be cooler, "only"98!

I will have access to all my websites, and I will be reachable at jfmulwitz@yahoo.com. I will be checking in when possible.

Brunswick is a cutie! Since Meepsie is still a "baby girl" at almost 5, there's no reason Bunsick can't be a kitten at 10!

ML, Mom, Danielle--I will be thinking of you, Bear, Amber and Jake! GS, and Moms--take care of yourselves and get some rest!!

Kim & Donna-welcome home! Riquel, have a good weekend welcoming home your warrior!

I'll check around again later today.

Claire said...

There was a Duke of Brunswick during the battle of Waterloo, perhaps that is the connection? Maybe he has a regal personality?

Karen C. said...

Donna - Yes, I'm a very proud member of the Black Cats Club. I love my babies! I always keep nightlights on in the house so nobody steps on the cats or trips over them in the dark. Brunswick makes bowling balls, shoes, bags, and other bowling alley equipment. I've been reading that name on stuff all my life. There's even a brunswickbowling.com site to prove that I'm not nutso! I apologize to Canada for forgetting New Brunswick - I love Canada.

alohahelper said...

Thanks for sharing Brunswick with us. VERY nice picture of him lording it over his domain. Add me to the roster of the Black Cat Club. I know how difficult it is to get a nice IN FOCUS picture of a black cat. When my sister took in a stray black kitty, she called her KC for Kelly Clark, the company she was working for at the time bacause that's where she found the cat. When the kitty came to live with us, we called her the black cat or Blackie and the name sort of stuck. Original, huh? She's about 17-years-old now.

Karen C. said...

Deb - by the way...are you sitting down? Is your foot elevated?

Deb said...

karen c -- Well, I did run some errands this morning. But in my defense....okay...I don't have a defense. Sigh, going to go and elevate my foot....Thanks for caring! :)

Anonymous said...

what a handsome guy! he looks very relaxed and content in 'his jungle' LOL! cute pic.

Karen C. said...

Remember the ice pack! Your sister's birthday was a good defense, errands are not. **stern look** If you lay down, won't your kitties jump on you and go to sleep? That will pin you down for a while - try it :)

Karen C. said...

(last comment was to Deb)

Gheeri's Servant said...

Yay!!! If I knew how to make little animations I would make a black cat and put "The Black Cat Club" on my site... it needs a peppier name, though... The "Midnight" cat club? The Dark as Night Cat Club? Whaddya guys think?

Jan, if I don't talk to you, have a great trip, you will be missed!!! BTW, who's taking care of all the animals?

Danielle, if Jake isn't drinking it may be because he's eating baby food, which has a very high percentage of water. Any time a cat eats "wet" food, they drink less, so you may not notice him drinking 'cause he's not as thirsty!

Deb said...

Karen C: Okay, okay...off to elevate foot. Good idea about the kitties. If Seaborne lies on me, I don't have any hope of getting up :)! For anyone interested in a stupid story: I dropped a glass bowl and a shard of it cut my foot -- three stitches. Karen C. has been attempting to make me be "good" and do what the doctor says. Going to lie down, ice and elevate now....sigh....hope there is something good on tv....boring....rather stay on blog.....sigh

Karen C. said...

Deb - IF you could position yourself so that your foot was iced and elevated while you have the keyboard on your lap, you could stay online and chat with us. (I left a couple ghost stories on Danielle's site, if you're looking for things to read.) But, if you can't sit in the doctor prescribed position, you'll have to lay down with the kitties and the TV. Be good.

casper's mom (Monica) said...

Goodness Deb, that was quite a cut. Well I am with Karen C be a good girl and take Seaborne and lay down or lift up your foot. We have to take care of our Mommies as well as our kitties and doggies. Take care O.K.

Emma's Kat said...

OMGosh! Just came from Cute Overload! You must go look! Rosie, you're gonna love this pic! Everyone will know the one I'm talking about, just keep scrolling past the hammies! I have to go look again! Too cute! Karen, btw, loved your...I'm gonna call them, angel stories. Gave me chills.

Karen C. said...

Kat - I found it! I'll leave it to Rosie to comment - she expresses these things so well. (I was typing another story - I have a few more - but I got dumped by Internet Explorer. I might try later.)

riquel said...

ROFL...that Cute overload pic is too funny! Rosie will die when she sees it, she called my pic of Munchkin obscene!

Meowmepurr's Mumma in Washington State said...

I agree--Rosie will have something interesting to say about those two at CO!

GS- I will be in Tucson BY MYSELF!! Well, that's if you don't count the construction crew putting in a new bathroom, the 3 cats and 2 dogs(who all like to sleep with Auntie), and Mother next door. Paul will be here, doing his primary job as Cat Staff(or Heated Kitty Furniture). He is also having his Experimental Aircraft Association chapter meeting here while I'm gone. We spent the morning cleaning and rearranging the shop, moving 2 airplane wings, and generally spiffing up the shop building for the meeting. I still have bathrooms to clean, bed to change, sweep & mop(he vacuums), oh yea, and pack and the last 2 loads of laundry!!

DEB--listen to your Mothers(and Mummas)--foot up, ice, take it easy, and feel better soon.

Anyhow, I won't be out of touch, though I may not be on tomorrow!

Purrs and Huggles to all--

DUCHY FUZZ.

Kim said...

Hello All! Brunswick got his name from...Brunswick,ME. My sister had just moved there and my Mom thought that would make a good name. He really does fit his name!

Donna, welcome home!!! I hope you had a great trip! Mr B looks JUST like Kona! When Kona made his debut, I made my Mom look at him and she was just amazed at how much they looked alike.

So much has happened while I was gone, I don't even know where to start. I'm sorry for all that is going on with our fuzzy friends! I hope all those who are sick and those who are hurt, feel better soon. I can't wait for the day when we all meet for our fuzz family reunion, we could use a good ole group hug!
