sorry to hear about bagatelle, jon.

sometimes i like to placate my catlessness by watching cat pics and GIFs. two of my favorite ongoing lists are:

https://www.reddit.com/r/CatGifs/
https://www.reddit.com/r/StartledCats/

(if you have R.E.S. installed, each GIF will pop open right in browser without needing to open a tab)

there is however one trend i disapprove of: that's where the owner places a cucumber-type object next to the cat while it's distracted doing something else. usually the cat eventually notices it and then propels itself as high and far as it can suddenly leap. the theory is that the cucumber looks like a snake, many of which prey on small cats.

Well that's the kind of abuse I visit on my 16 year old every day. It keeps him young, although he does have a teensy weensy bit of a heart condition. I've been putting off grocery shopping for a week. A cucumber is just the inspiration I needed (apparently).

So sorry to hear about Bagatelle, Jon. Losing a pet is tough! You gave Bagatelle a good home, a lot of love, and you let her sleep on your head! It doesn't get any better for a cat.
