Forever Friday - Big Boy and Winners!
This larger than life boy is from Catman2, a private, no-kill cat-only shelter. Conceived in 1996, Catman2 is managed by Dr. Harold Sims, a retired college biology professor and his wife,Kay, a retired school social worker. The cats live in a large shelter adjacent to the Sims’ home in Cullowhee, North Carolina.
If you like large cats you will love this older cat, Big Boy, He is around 25 pounds of love. If you adopt him he NEEDS to be put on a diet. He needs a home and lots of action. Check him out. He had a home. Good home. two good but owners fell on hard times and had to give him up. They left the shelter crying. He was loved and he needs love again. He has a microchip. Click on Catman2 to see more of Big Boy and the other cats available for adoption.
Thank you all so much for the great turnout for Chica's 19th Birthday Bash! She had a great time and is still going strong - not one to wimp out on a party! We have some winners for the quiz questions altho Mom should have Googled the answers better herself - you guys got one up on her!
The oldest living cat, according to the Guinness Book of World Records was Creme Puff from Austin, TX who lived to be 38 years - and Grandpa, the Sphynx, (who Mom thought was the oldest!) was 34 years and 2 months. So we have two winners - Artemisia, Socks, Scylla & Fenris for getting Grandpa's age correct first and The Monkeys for guessing right first about Creme Puff. Both you guys get a fun cube to play in!
No one got the first quiz about what you call a cat over 22 until Mom added another hint - cats over 22 are considered to be in their 100's - so the answer is centenarian. Both Creme Puff and Grandpa were considered to be 120 plus years old! Cat of Nine Tails won this quiz for guessing correctly first so they get a copy of the Cat High Yearbook!
Thanks so much for playing and all the good wishes. Let's hope Chica is around another 10 years! Don't forget June is Adopt a Shelter Cat Month!
