Jinx


Nearly two years ago some kindly person dropped off 3 cats near our house. Thankfully they came right up to our home and began meowing woefully. My husband and I had never had pets before and honestly didn't know what to do. Naturally I started feeding them and began wondering what in the world had happened. We tried to find out if anyone was missing 3 cats and when no one claimed them, well they became ours. So Boo, Jinx and Ping joined our family. - Debra S.

**Please don't forget to vote for Kat's Cat one more time!! Today is the last day of voting! Thanks so much for all your votes!

Good morning everyone!

Haven't had the opportunity to visit the sites as much as I want to with three teenage kids on MY computer. lol Oh well, school will be back in soon as I will get my computer time back.

Jinx is a beautiful kitty Debra and thank you and your husband for not only taking one but all THREE cats. I just love the way Jinx is nicely snuggled into that basket.

Emma's Kat said...

Good morning! Ahhhhh...so nice to be able to read the post!! Ok, Jinx, love his coloring!! Dark charcoal grey with nicely defined stripes! What a handsome boy!

DebraS. - Where does Jinx fit in the scheme of things in the house?

Cali Residents - How's the heat? Power? How's Cairo today, Kathleen?

Well, gotta go put Emma's post together today! Blogger was still acting up last night as far as posting pix!

Ta ta for now!

Claire said...

Happy B-day, Riquel!! Hope you have a great day and get flowers today!

danielle said...

First Riquel HAPPY PURRTHDAY!!!!!
This is a beautiful kitty you got. He looks like lots of fun.
Kat I like the new design.

Riquel said...

THANKS LADIES!!!

Am I having deja vu, or have I seen this handsome guy before? The story sounds familiar, maybe it was one of his brothers I am thinking about...however I am another year older today, so maybe I am just senile?

At any rate, Jinx is beautiful!

Emma's Kat said...

Jinx and his family, you may have seen on Manx MNews. That is DebraS.' site.

LOA said...

LOA said...

loa said...

Emma's Kat said...

Blogger and the Blogpoll have been very tempermental!! Danielle, keep trying to post pix! And those trying to vote and getting a server not connecting or down message, keep trying! It will work, you just have to try a couple of times. At least that's what happened to me! I voted for you Danielle! There's a few ahead of you! :(

Ella's Mom said...

Morning all, just checking in before I start work. Kat I love the new look. No more disappearing text! I voted for your site too. Jinx is a cutie, what a beautiful coat. I think one of his siblings was posted before? I remember the story too. I'd love to pet that soft fur. Wonder if Jinx will let me pet him?

danielle said...

I got pictures up!!!!

katnippia said...

Good Morning Fuzz Family !!!!!!

Jinx, you are a very handsome kitty. You look so cute laying in that basket. I do have to ask, what was he raching for in the picture on the right.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful day.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY RIQUEL !!!!

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

Jinx, you are so handsome! My kitty "Sam" also likes to crawl up in baskets!

Kat: LOVE THE NEW SITE!!!

Riquel: HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

GOOD MORNING TO ALL! I am feeling much better today!

Meowmepurr's Mumma in Washington State said...

My herd of wild elephants just roared down the hall and down the stairs, both of them yelling at the top of their lungs! Flumpy is NOT amused at Meepsie's latest adventure in the blogosphere. I have apologised to Cocoa for their bad behavior, but they are both grounded off the computer until THEY each apologise!

Jinx is so sweet, kitties in baskets are just adorable. It's so cute when they don't quite fit!

Another busy day for me--I'm part of a focus group this morning. We have a mailorder quilter's shop in Vancouver, and this group is going to help pick the fabrics for the 2007 catalogs. It should be fun! Then it's the usual get ready for the weekend errands, Whoopee!!

Paul teases me about how he practically has to use explosives to get me off the mountain and down to town. I love my home, town is hot, noisy and crowded, and I have to wear a bra! Oh well...

Meowmepurr's Mumma in Washington State said...

MPD...

KAT-love the new look!!

DEB-Glad you're feeling better. I LOVE ML's necklace--way to go, girl!!

RIQUEL-Happy Purrthday

ML-Meepsie wants your necklace-she LOVES shiny things!! It is just beautiful & you deserve all good things!!

LOA said...

Loa said...

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

*** ALERT ***
Check Riquel's blog for a never before printed update on the adorable angel, KC.

Love cats curled up in baskets. Very cute cat. :-)

Kat, I like the new look but I have to say that I dislike custom cursors so much that I usually end up completely disabling CSS when I'm viewing your site to get rid of it (and the Cursor Mania graphic stuck on the page is really annoying -- that's new, isn't it?)

Emma's Kat said...

Anonymous - Sorry you dislike custom cursors so much! I think they're cute! As far as the Cursor Mania graphic, I'm workin on it!! It is quite annoying where it is, blocking the post title. Btw, no fair being anonymous!

ML - Any suggestions on getting the CM graphic to move!? It is pasted in my HTML below my archives code!

Riquel said...

Sheesh! Everyone's a critic!! LOL...I like the new look Kat, except the cursor Icon that is covering up the name of the Cat.

Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes!

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Kat, I'll have to go look at the site on Charley's computer. I'm running that new beta that eliminates all the problems (er, those problems, lots of new problems, BIG problems). Since it doesn't show up on mine, it must be related to the same bug that makes the text disappear.

violentjaysa said...

Oh My Gosh!! Those are some of the cutest photos ever!!! Jinx looks sooooo cuddly!! What a gift to find at your door!!

~ j

Kathleen said...

Kat-love the new look, thanks for all of your hard work!
Riquel-Happy B-Day!
Cairo update-she came home last night and looked like a drunken sailor-Rosie didn't know what to do with her. She hopped around and fell over, hopped around and fell over etc. Put her in the bedroom with mushy dry food, a little water, box, and boyfriend. Had to give her pain meds and eye meds.
This morning she was hungry and active and seemingly had slept off the drunken stupor. I think she will be fine. We will confine her in the bedroom through Friday.
On a personal note, broke my litte toe on my right foot and now must hope around in flip flops-lovely look at the office!

caspersmom said...

Jinx you are a handsome kitty. I think Debra S might have posted on GS site with her kitties. Also so glad you took all three and let them rule your life.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY RIQUEL

I too am having trouble posting on my site today. Casper is coming back on. I am going to try one more time then I will have to get off as we are expecting a phone call. See you later.

danielle said...

Kathleen,
That sounds really funny. I hope the toe gets better soon. How did you do that?

Karen C. said...

I love Jinx and I love the gray with the stripes. Maybe Abby could let him post more on their blog. He looks like he's quite a sweet and fun kitty!

I have the Beta version of IE and the cursor mania thing is over Jinx's name here too.

RIQUEL - HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!

Kat - I was only allowed to vote once from work. Not even once per day - just once. Then it says that this address has already voted. I tried some of the other computers here too, and same deal. Since it's work, I don't feel right about messing with the settings here. I have 5 computers online at home and they can all vote repeatedly. I could call my daughter and ask her to send a few votes your way. Of course, I do love Manny too (even though I'm not able to post comments on his site), and then my kitties are up there too... LOL If I can wake Kelly up, I'll ask her to help you out.

ML - THANK YOU AGAIN! It's the most fun ever to be able to take decent pictures for once. I used to have to take about 50 and hope that maybe 1 or 2 would be good. Plus, anything over about 20 feet away was hopeless. I have pictures from my kids' school programs and things where you can't even find their little heads in the picture.

Mumma - Cocoa's sad about not having a girlfriend after all, and he's still scared of Flumpy. BTW - you have to wear a bra to town? Yuck. I avoid them like the plague. Well, I take that back. I wear one to the shelter for extra protection against the sharp claws of purring, kneading kitties.

I have to go to Riquel's site now...

Karen C. said...

Just saw Kathleen posted while I was typing. Sorry to hear about your toe - I've done that and it REALLY HURTS. I'd never laugh at a kitty, especially after surgery, but...hop, flop, hop, flop...that must have been funny!

Kathleen said...

It was more like empathetic giggles, boyfriend came to her defense!
Ran into my dining room chair (wrought iron legs) after cleaning cat boxes and ripped back my little toe. Subsequent language out of my mouth was not pretty!

Claire said...

Kathleen, Very sorry to hear about your toe-must be awfully painful-even at night-hope you can prop your foot up at work.

Glad Cairo got through the surgery ok, our Alex had to have 6 teeth pulled recently but seems to have NO PROBLEM eating after recovery-hope that is the same for her.

Kathleen said...

FYI, I could only vote once as well :(

Karen C. said...

When I broke my toe it was the same way, but on one of the legs of my daughter's little toddler bed (many years ago). Then, while limping around the very next day, I did the same exact thing with the same exact toe that I had broken the day before. I'm a total klutz.
(Don't tell Cairo I'm giggling about her hop/flop thing!)

loa said...

ÆÆÆÆÆÆÆÆ about your toe i did that ones %&/("&& man did it hurt

Cecilia said...

Jinx, you are a cutie. Just look at those feet. Abd I love your coloring.

Emma I like the new look. If you can just move that pesky Cursor Mania thingy.

danielle said...

I finally got pictures on my picture site.

Riquel said...

OOOOUUUUCCCCH...about the broken toe! Now did you break it before, or after you were laughing at Cairo...that Karma thing is a b&*$h....lol

Karen C. said...

Dee posted another tear jerker poem on TDK today, in case anyone else likes a good cry like I do. See comment #25.

alohahelper said...

I'm only able to vote once for The Blogs of Summer both at work and at home. When I try again, I get the following message:
"This address has already voted! It is allowed to vote only once for this poll" RATS!

Jinx, you look so comfy in your basket. I put Pumpkin in a basket when I weigh him and he loves it. Of course he starts to bite the edge and then sharpen his claws on it so I have to dump him out quickly when I'm done and sweep up the basket bits! You can see a kitten picture of him in his basket at: http://www.kittenbreak.com/4945. He's graduated to a bigger basket and weights nearly 8 pounds now.

caspersmom said...

Finally got our phone call and also finally got Casper posted.

Really like your new site Kat.

Kathleen, Glad Cairo is feeling a little better. Sorry, but it is kind of funny when they get home after surgery. Cleo acted the same way after being spayed. Sorry about the toe though. It sure doesn't feel good, I broke mine, I think, twice. I'm clumsy.

I got to vote twice, once today and once on the 25th.

Emma's Kat said...

I have in my hands...ML's DLS!!! MUAHAHAHAHAH! Want some hints ML?? Hmmmmm, let me think...............................it's kinda, hmmmm.........pretty! There! Bet you'll never guess. Lol! Ok, going to email a pic to everyone! Ta ta 4 now!

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

Kathleen, your poor little toe! I know that has to hurt! I hope it feels better soon.

LOA: I'm back and feeling much better!

I've been out running errands, so it is time to take a rest!

The Whippy Curly Tails said...

Sweet!

Karen C. said...

I just saw the e-mail containing the picture of the DLS for ML, and I'd just like to say...MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!

Meowmepurr's Mumma in Washington State said...

KAT-I just tried to vote for you again, and I get "This address has already voted! You can only vote once for this poll." I thought we could vote once A DAY!!! What gives? BTW-anyone who has not voted NEEDS TO VOTE!! Our friend Manny is catching up(Sorry, but all's fair...)!!!

Emma's Kat said...

Yes, I guess the Blogs of Summer is new and all the kinks haven't been tweaked out! Everyone is supposed to be able to vote once a day. I had a the same message w/Danielle today or yesterday, don't remember which and I just tried again. I also got the error that the server wouldn't connect or was down or something and kept trying and it finally took. Oh well! I would love to win, but Manny's site is great too!

Jan!? Do you hear that humming!? Someone's humming that catchy tune...oh what's it about?! Oh yeah, it's about a dls...::snickering softly:: ;)

jess said...

Jinx is so cute! i love how he's all squished up in that basket! lol. and the second pic, looks like he could be dancin'! what a sweetie. bless you for taking in all 3 cats. i bet there's never a dull moment in your house. lol

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

For the EVIL LAUGH personified, uh, feline-ified, see Captain Casper (http://caspermom.blogspot.com/).

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

Hi! Just voted for Kat again ... I have found that if at first it won't take the vote, wait for a little while and try again. I have even succeeded in voting ....whispering...more than once a day....MUA-HA-HA-HA , but don't give up cause Kat is very close to winning!

Hmm...Kat...I DO hear that music...the DLS music....who do you think it is aiming at? You & I know....does anyone else?

MUA-HA-HA-HA-HA

LOA said...

i cant get it to work but once sorry

Karen S. said...

I voted from my computer at work today, but it would only let me vote once. So I came home and voted again. I didn't try a second time at home. I'll go try that now.

Karen S. said...

I got the same message as everyone else--that my computer already voted.

Jinx, you are a cutie! I think you need a slightly bigger basket, though.

Kat-new site looks good!

Haven't seen the picture of the dls for ML yet. I think it must be at my work email. Going to try to get into it from home.

debscats5 said...

Keep trying, the little blogger is obstinate, but can be tricked. If necessary, log off and then on again!

Emma's Kat said...

Muahahaha..oh! Sorry, just practicing my evil laughter!

You guys are so great! Thank you for voting for me and being persistent too, as there seems to be some bugs in the Blogpoll system! Haven't checked in a bit, but Manny was right on my heels a little while ago!

ML - Have you figured out how to do a hyper link w/in the comment box yet?! I asked about it over at...shoot! Can't remember who's site I was at! Anyway, I saw that someone had used a link in their comment, so I asked how they did it. Hopefully, no! We will figure it out!

Kitty said...

Sorry about posting as anonymous yesterday -- wasn't paying attention and my automatic settings had cleared. And wasn't trying to be critical -- just offering an opinion. I think the site is great.

BTW to post a link in a comment, use HTML anchor tags, e.g. Google would < a href="http://www.google.com" >Google< /a > (without the spaces after the < symbols or before the > symbols).

momsbusy said...

jinx is so cute all curled up in his basket. love the other pic too. almost looks like he is making biscuits in the air.lol

kat, love the new look.

Kim said...

OH Jinx, you are so sweet! I'm so happy to meet you! You three chose the right Momma and Daddy! The pic of you in the basket is just great!

Happy Birthday Riquel!
