EvenBob,

Well THERE'S a cardboard box that survived more than a day!

P.S. I have really been enjoying the photos of your cats.

It's the fourth day and the box is still intact, amazing. It's on the top step on the kitchen stepping stool and they can't really get at it but they will.

Wow the box is still here and look what I found in it, a 7 week old black kitten. Actually I put in there a friend of mine had two kittens and I took this one because he has a white spot on his tail and he's very cute and very friendly, super friendly. What will ensue now is a couple months of the kitten growing up and chasing all the other cats around there will be hilarity for one and all.

I'm always so grateful with the other kitties accept a new member into the tribe without giving him any problems. Sometimes a couple of the older males will give a new kitten a hard time but they're leaving this little guy alone. He's already a member of their family.

Cats are very good company, more so than dogs in my opinion. I've had dogs and they're fine, but they're always wanting something. Dogs are always wanting anything other than what they're doing right now. A cat is always satisfied, they are very mellow and never demanding. A dog is always wanting you to pay attention to him, or take him for a walk, or take him for a ride in the car, or begging for food, they are never satisfied for long,

The friend who gave me the black kitten wants me to watch his brother for a few days while he goes out of town. It's obviously a trick he thinks I'm going to become really attached to this fat little thing and won't be able to live without him. He is so fat that the picture doesn't capture it, he's just really really cute. And him and the other kitty the way they play and fight is just hilarious but I'm not going to fall for it. He's going back.

This is one of my prettiest male kitties, he's a huge cat and he has these beautiful huge eyes. You should have seen him when he was a kitten he was absolutely adorable. When he is on the floor and he's looking up at me his eyes look twice as big as they do here.

I'm so relieved. This fat little thing I'm holding is about 7 weeks old and he has not been very interested in solid food and I was worried about him so I've been feeding him with a food syringe. Mixed canned food with some water suck it up into the syringe and force it into his mouth. They don't like it when you do this and I don't like it either and I did it for 3 days in a row and all of a sudden today he has an appetite that doesn't quit. I feed my cats three times a day and he's right there now with all the other big cats. Of course there's dry food they can eat anytime they want. I even put some chicken out tonight and he was right there standing in the middle of it chomping down. I've lost kittens before because they didn't seem very interested in eating. This one is really fat I think he's going to be a great big male cat. He's also really affectionate and there's nothing worse than a cat that doesn't like affection.

Was cleaning my basement and found a kitten calendar from 2003. These things are actually collectible this was probably worth 15 to $20. If you get one from the seventies or eighties they can be worth a lot more than that. My question is where do people find kittens that look like this. I've never seen one in real life and if I did they would probably be a lot of money to buy one of them.

The entire country of Japan is obsessed with cats. They even have Islands that are home to so many cats it's a tourist attraction. I totally understand this, I'm obsessed with cats. There's something about them that's different than any other animal.

Yes the six toe'd cats are half the reason people visit there. Hemingway loved cats, he always had multiple cats wherever he lived, both in Florida and in Cuba. And my whole life I've never met a cat person that I didn't personally like. And if somebody tells me they don't like cats I almost always end up not liking them.

There are usually over 50 cats living on the Hemingway property at any given time. They are very well taken care of and when I visited there in the 90s there were cats everywhere. And from the videos I see there are still cats everywhere. Cats always make people smile.

"Studies have shown that your kitty is a lifesaverů. Literally. Interaction with cats can not only help heal our bodies but also reduce the risk of heart attacks, lower our blood pressure and release dopamine and serotonin, which help regulate your mood, reduce stress and ultimately improve immune functioning."

It's an absolute fact that cats make you feel better no matter what kind of mood you're in. Every time I pet one of my cats I can feel myself grinning from ear to ear without even knowing it. Every time. Being around cats all the time keeps you almost stress-free and studies have shown that over a 10 year period cat owners have a 30% less chance of getting heart disease and a whole lot of other things.

You know Fall is here because it's getting cold in the house and the pile of cats shows up. Cats are heat seekers and they love to sleep in piles so they keep warm. There are seven cats in this pile including two small kittens. I have an old house that has the furnace grates on the floor and I have cages built over them because if I didn't the cats would sleep in a pile directly on the furnace grade and no heat will get into the house. They can sleep on top of the cage and the heat goes out the sides.

Look how fat and cute this little black cat is. He's such a roly poly little kid I pick him up 15 times a day just to kiss him and fondle him and listen to him purr. Kittens that look like this are addictive if you have one because you know it's not going to last very long and they're so damn cute you just can't stand it. He's hugely fat, look at the size of my hand compared to his little body. He's going to be a giant cat and a really friendly one. Right now he does nothing but eat and sleep and waddle his little lard butt around the house.
