A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!


« on: June 23, 2015, 10:55:33 PM »

I was coming home from a meeting in Dallas with a paleontologist friend of mine when I spotted a tiny ball of yellow fur lying in the middle of the Interstate service road.  I thought it was a Beanie Baby until it moved.  I pulled over and got out of my car and found a tiny kitten, bleeding from the nose, mouth, and ears; too weak to move.  I thought he was dying and carried him off the road to a soft clump of grass, planning to leave him there.  But as I walked away, he raised his head and meowed at me, and my heart melted.  I brought him home, still doubting he would make it through the night.  For the first couple of days, he was too weak to even climb out of a shoe box.  But then he suddenly decided to live, and began padding through the house, exploring and annoying our bigger cat.



Now he is a strong, healthy, beautiful tom.  We named him "Fortuna", which means "Lucky."  More often, however, we just call him "Tuna Cat."  And yes, I probably put his picture on here way too often.  But he is my Tuna and I wuv him!



Happy birthday, boy!

I sometimes wish this could happen to me, it's the only way I would be allowed to have another cat  TeddyR

I used to say I live my life a quarter mile at a time and I think that's why we were brothers- because you did, too. No matter where you are, whether it's a quarter mile away or half way across the world. The most important thing in life will always be the people in this room. Salute mi familia. You'll always be with me... And you'll always be my brother.

Happy belated birthday to your fur kiddo! 

My feline niece TK was in a somewhat similar situation.  She had been found alone in a storage shed by my future sister in law, meowing away.  No sign then of the mother or any siblings (although the mother cat's remains were found later).  She brought TK in and took care of her but wasn't planning to keep her.  She asked her friends if anyone wanted a kitten but no one did.  My future sister in law wound up keeping TK and she's grown into the loveable brat that she is today.



Based on TK's vet estimated age when she was found (about 3 weeks) we declared June 1 to be her birthday on the photo calendar we get Mom every year.

I just read that and reached over to pet Fortuna, who is sitting in the chair beside me.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
