It’s Sunday which means Caturday and another installment of Pull Up Your Cat, where kitteh worshiping dorks get together and fawn over our four legged, fuzzy friends.
An eventful week at
Margaret’s Kuroneko’s house. As I was showering Monday morning, the center piece came out of my shower head so I had to stop by Home Labyrinth to get a new one. Now you might be saying, “but I thought that you rent…”, and that would be true. On the other hand, waiting for several days for maintenance to get around to installing another $2.50 plastic shower head didn’t sound appealing so I spent the sixteen bucks and bought a nice one. (I also bought a cheap p.o.s. to install when I move).
Normally, Kuroneko doesn’t do well with new things, even things she doesn’t see much of. Heck, I let her hide for a day and a half before I dragged her out of the closet to confront the new television I bought last year. She did alright with the new shower head though but then she doesn’t spend much time in the tub.
A couple of weeks ago, I got a note from maintenance telling me that they were going to install new, programmable thermostats in all of the units. When I came home on Wednesday, there was a Honeywell van in front of my building, which meant that the thermostat people had either been to my apartment, were there just then or were coming soon. If I had had my camera in my pocket when I opened the door, my Kuroneko picture of the week would have been of her on the back of the sofa, sniffing and batting at the new thermostat! She seems to be overcoming her fear of everything not of the ordinary. Though I’m happy that she’s wary enough to hide when strangers come into my home, I’m grateful that I don’t have to drag her out of her current hidey hole because I had the temerity to introduce a new appliance or piece of furniture anymore.
On to our pictures!

This is Called “Cats can be Jerks” but some of these are just dead clever! Enjoy!
That’s it from me and ‘Neko this week. As I type this, she is draped over my right shoulder, purring against me head with her swishing tail sweeping over my typey fingers and her cold nose in the back of my neck. I’m sure I’ll have to edit this for typos when she gets down. Please feel free to stop by and let us know how you and your four leggeds, (two leggeds, no leggeds) are getting along. I hope everybody has a wonderful week to come but whatever you do, please remember to set aside some time to spend with whatever animals share their lives with you.
*As a new feature, if anybody would like to submit a picture of their cat, (or other animal friend for placement in a future PUYC, let me know in the comments and I’ll post my email address long enough for the requester to copy it down.*
