Cats of Steemit? Can that be a thing now? 🐱 #catsofsteemit

2 months ago

So there's a bit of a Crazy Cat Lad thing going around Steemit at the moment.

It all began with this post I think.. followed by this .

As a self confessed Cat Lady, I'm really feeling the male domination on this particular topic and I just couldnt have that!

So everyone... Meet Cat Two.

Two because he is our second cat. The first cat ran off and never came back home.

From here on in, let's call Cat Two "Fluffy" on account of me always having to tell people "He's not fat, he's just fluffy."

Fluffy is a rescue cat. For months after we lost Cat One we tried to rescue a cat at Blacktown Animal Shelter, but every time we were almost there the cat would get sick and they would tell us we cant adopt. Heart breaking every single time. If you can manage to adopt an animal from Blacktown Animal Shelter DO IT and do it quick! Rescue that animal!

At the time I was working for a pet food company and everyone, from staff to customers to drivers, knew I was looking to adopt a cat. No I don't want a fancy pure breed cat, No I don't want to go to the pet store.. I want a rescue.. This was a concept people found hard to grasp for some reason, but I'm stubborn like that.

So when one of our customer's rang me to let me know there's a cat available for adoption at the local Vet, I rang hubby and told him we have to go pick up our cat that afternoon. He's like.. Have you seen him? Nope. But hes coming home with us tonight. And he did :)

This is him when he was little inside his cardboard tunnel system.

Because we lost Cat One on account of her being an indoor/outdoor cat, we weren't going to make the same mistake twice so Fluffy is a strictly indoors only cat. Knowing we were depriving him of the fun he can have in nature - we spoiled him to alleviate our guilt.

The cardboard tunnel system was a thing of beauty and he loved it. It lasted for years, until it couldn't take his weight anymore.

"The Castle" took a couple of hours and two people to assemble, and has saved our house and furniture all these years. Seriously a great investment for an indoor cat. It's only just starting to fall apart now lol

His life as an indoor cat isn't so bad. He's got us, his toys and sometimes his mates come around, but he has to tell them he can't come out and play cos his mum won't let him.

He doesn't usually like movies and just falls asleep through them, but he really got into Planet of the Apes one night.

See? I've gone to bed and he's still watching.

He keeps me company while I work. Like seriously, no matter what I'm working on, he'll be right here.

More like distract me while I work.

Ohh stop with the cuteness already!

Here's Fluffy giving me support while I attempt an insane 5 deck reading. He looks like he's meditating lol.

My Fluffy is the cuddliest cat. He is very affectionate and needy, smart and cheeky - he has so many facets to his personality, he's more than a cat to us, he's our baby.

Hubby says I'm a stay at home Mum for our cat, but most days I feel like he's looking after me.

Wow looks like Steemit has gone back to 2010 when the hole works favorite hobbies was cat photos. Not a bad thing I really love the cats, they are all so cute. Great work :)

·

hahah I missed Cat Mania 2010! I wish I was there to witness it :)

Thanks!

Post of the day.i resteem your post.

·

Cheers @cryptomaker :)

·

hahah gorgeous cat tho! :P

NOM NOM

Love this post! I recently wrote about my own cat Molly. It looks like she and Fluffy share the same behaviors! (She's traditionally an indoor cat as well, who goes outside under close supervision, so I understand everything on the outdoors side of things). Also love the scratching post!

·

Thank you! It's the best thing we've ever bought him.

I just saw!! I love your Molly 💗 she is just gorgeous!

hehe yes I also do the supervised outdoor exploration. Not so much at this new place since there are other cats around, and there's plenty of birds - and Id be horrified if he killed something (he's vegetarian - wont have wet food)

I'd love for him to have a cat run though. He needs fresh air. lol

Love how they watch TV!! That's awesome 😂

·

@cheeto.blue lol theyre very picky with the shows they watch too.

·
·

Whahaha!!! 😂

Cute pet!

·

Thanks!

I'm not really a pet person but I had a all white cat when I was young, same blue eyes as your cutie :)

·

I was a dog person for years until we had our first cat. They're pretty low maintenance 😉maybe the kids would like a pet 😉

·
·

I always ask them, are you ready to scoop up your pet's poop?
No.
Ok no pet for you. :P

So cute :) We've got dogs and would love a cat but it just would not work out. The dogs are outdoor animals but they would love to live on the couch....which is where the cat would be.....it would just get too furry for words :)

·

Lol I can just imagine it now 😁

Fluffy has taken a liking to my bean bag. Its been a long time since I've been ablen to sit on that thing on my own.

I can so see you on the floor while the fur babies take the lounge ❤

I've grown accustomed to the floor. 😁

You need to bring this to @goldenarms attention tout suite!

Cool cat though.

·

I did think to post the link in Team Canada, but figured posting it in Team Australia would be just as good ever since the Canucks Invasion eh 😜

Cute cat! I suddenly miss my Maxx, who died several months back. He was also an adopted cat from fellow expats here in Abu Dhabi who were relocating that time.
He lived with us for about 2 years here, then we brought him to PH where he spent most of his years with my parents...

Oh he is a handsome devil! Great story, you get better everyday @bearone! He was watching Planet of the Apes, hilarious..my cat watches tennis sometimes 😊 Morning made..thank you for sharing!

Great post! Love cats... They heal the soul.

He's in bread, but, I love him.

@bearone this is awesome! I loved that you followed suit with this cat thing. Maybe we should make it a thing? Two is so cute. I love all the kitten pictures and such, he looks like a good pal. Love that you stuck with the recusing thing too. Don't be surprised if you see me make a post about my kitties too now, I think we should totally have a bunch of cat posts on here.

What a lovely fluffy cat! I wish I can post cat pics but I don't have a cat - I'm a cat lover though. ^_^

And a 5 deck reading, are you insane? :P

He's gorgeous mommi..and not fat. Love his eyes. I had a kitten as a child, slept and purring at my feet every night. My mom didn't like her lolsss. I had a poodle years and years ago after that.

Nice Tube House! Nice Kitty!

I used to build cardboard houses as a lad, with the help of my little brother. We held them together with bread ties ;)

Haha I like it. I miss my old cat. #catsofsteemit is a great idea
