    Zina was a marina cat in Savannah when my son was living aboard his sailboat. She came walking down the dock when he was making a tuna sandwich in the cockpit. He gave her some tuna and she never left. She came with when he moved back to Maine and somehow ended up with us.

    She’s curled up right now at the foot of the bed.

    We said goodbye to Moon, our 19 year old cat, last fall.



    He liked to perch on my skiff.

    Mr. Skiff - does your cat dispatch birds?

    Perhaps not when he was 19, but it looks like he maintained an interest in his hobby…

    Here is our Rudy. He could be Moon's twin. He gets yard time from sunup to 1 or so. Then it's inside and he has an outdoor wired cat patio available to sit in. All cats should have a "Catio". Rudy is out there all hours watching and listening. Rudy.jpg

    The kittens I adopted last spring for my home are getting big. That's Spike in the foreground, Mimsy relaxing on my sail bag.

    Here's Lorenzo the Bean (the one in front), named after one of Ursula K. LeGuin's cats. He's got some kind of obscure neurological problem where his back legs don't work quite right and he totters a bit, but he manages OK. We're actually down to one cat for the first time in a very long while.

    He's a very sweet boy, though wilful, and quite clever. He understands the doorknob principle, for example, but can't get a grip on them because of the tufts of fur on his paws. He did figure out how to turn on the water in the bathtub, so we had to come up with a way of preventing the handles from turning. He also loves to play fetch with plastic springs or paper straws, and is quite insistent when it's time to play.

    He's a rescue, and apparently made quite an impression on his foster mom when he was a kitten, too.

    What are you doing about it?

    Misty the Wondercat, just now, miffed at being disturbed from a nap atop a cabinet.
    A rescue, she. We've been good for each other, lo these 12 or so years.

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    I’m astonished! Hodge was just the same - he knew the “theory” of doors but could not get a grip on a door knob, but I remember him using those same very furry paws to flick a fish fillet out of the frying pan and onto the floor.

    I have sad news.

    Both the young cats at the start of this thread are no more.

    Charcoal the black one was killed by a motor vehicle; Luna the Persian tabby disappeared one day later. Her cater made flyers and advertising and called on all the neighbours but no luck. She was about to be chipped. She was wearing a harness and a lead; Margaret assumes that she was stolen.

    We said goodbye to our cat Moon (named because he showed up on the harvest moon in 2004). He was big and semi-wild.



    Out here, with foxes, coyotes, owls, cougars, et al. outdoor cats last about a year or two. But he roamed our valley for years and came back unscathed.

    He liked to go on walks, following the top rail of the pole fences.



    He loved to roost on my skiff. He'd have hated sailing, but he liked the boat.



    We buried him last fall, age 19 or so, next to our dear old dog, Ruby.

    That's tough. We had our cat Ozy for 16 years (he found us as an adult). He came sailing with me.

    Sad indeed. That's a tough (double) loss.

    So, I don't have any photos.

    But I just saw the Traveling show for "CATS" at the Duke Energy Center for the Preforming Arts. Great theater in Durham NC I have seen many shows there. It's only 200 miles from Richmond so we meet my family a little over half way between to dinner and a show/

    "CATS" in one word: Strange!

    Not the worst off Broadway show I have seen...but one of the strangest

    Blackie moved in with us about 11 weeks ago. He is settling in nicely and is a sweet little 15 lb kitty. This picture was taken a few days after he entered our lives.

    Here he is a week ago. He is definitely more relaxed now.

    We trapped a cat at the Marina. The Vet said, "Feel his belly, tight as a drum. Worms."

    Got that and the rest fixed up, $1,000. A year later he had some kind of stroke that paraylzed his back legs. Held him in my arms, over the puerile objections of the Veterinary Assistant, while he was euthanized. I told that kitty when we took him: you will die in my arms. New garage door put off another year.

    "Balance" of humans with nature. Know what that means? Minus $1,000 to us . . . not even entered into the balance sheet of "the marina", of civilization.

    Civilization can F off. Not worthy of the name; while we . . . continue to struggle to make it so.
    Long live the rights of man.

    There is nothing quite as permanent as a good temporary repair.
