Here is my former roommateís cat. He looked like a normal cat when she adopted him but I suspect he is a weird alien in a cat suit.

Iím a sucker and bought Sinjin a cooling mat. I managed to trick him into using it; if I sleep on the couch heíll sleep next to me on the side table so I placed it there. :kimchi: Otherwise I kept wetting him down with damp washcloths to keep him cool.

Look at his little priest collar!

Sinjin stopped eating after the PNW heatwave so heís spent the last few days on appetite stimulants and GI food. Heís got a healthy appetite today so heís feeling better, but he was extra cuddly the last couple days when he wasnít feeling so good. :ohdear:

If Iím on my side heíll sleep behind my knees, but if Iím on my back heíll sleep between my legs. :kimchi: Normally heíll decide I should be up at 5am and he starts meowing and biting my toes but this morning he was just a chill cuddly boy.

Oh hey, I drew your cat! Earlier this year when I was pining for a catte of my own I was drawing a lot of cats in my sketchbook and used some random goonís cat pic for reference. Iím positive this was Furb:

I havenít posted Sinjin here in a while. Time to fix that. He fluffed out a bit in the winter.







Had to buy a new garbage can because he figured out how to open the lid of the old one and dragging banana peels across the apartment. 😤

I only started following the YOSPOS cat thread a year ago and so many of my favorite thread regulars have passed in the last few months. :(

Maybe itís true with all pets, but cats are so private and intimate in the way that only their butlers/roommates get to really experience their weird little personalities. Their personalities become the heart and soul of a home.

Anyway, thank you for sharing Sadie and her great dangles with us. :unsmith:

Iíve been debating getting a second cat but donít know how Sinjin gets on with others. Heís bit needy and seems to want to wrestle but the stress wouldnít be worth it if they didnít get along.

But look at this adorable dummy who was found with a mayo jar stuck on his head. :3:

Yesterday was the first anniversary of Sinjinís gotcha day (and approximately 2nd birthday? maybe?)! 2021 loving sucked and I honestly canít imagine how I would have fared through it without an animal to take care of.

A couple months after I got him an old HS friend (who had a history of lovely behavior tbh) visited for a couple days andÖidk what she did but she made the cat afraid of her and was gloating about putting him in his place. :stare: I was suddenly in a position where like, buddy, I was already questioning the friendship before the cat; you couldnít have made it easier for me to tell you to get hosed.

The rest of the year was a lovely job with no boundaries that used any excuse to deny time off and insist on late nights and overtime. I had no life outside of work except for the cat. Iím finally out of that loving nightmare job and trying to scrabble out of the depression hole I fell into. That hole would have been deeper without this cuddly critter I have to feed twice a day, and without him I would probably still have the lovely friend.

So yeah, pets are cool. I held off on having a pet for a long time because of the inconvenience but itís totally worth it. The toxoplasma is in me. :brainworms:

Itís a mounted staghorn fern; they grow on the sides of trees so people mount them onto a wood plaque with sheet moss. You can feed them bananas. :3: That one is really big and healthy looking!

Last year Scoops had a fall that required an emergency vet visit, he's obviously very well now but every now and then I remember this picture and think we must have the most spoiled cat in the world.



Set up in bed, with the mattress we moved onto the floor so he could still sleep with us, tucked in watching cat TV.

I know this is from a couple pages back but itís just the cutest thing. :3:

My favorite annoying but cute thing Sinjin does is when I stay up late and he sees me finally head to bed; heíll run up ahead of me and plop down in the middle of the mattress and stare at me. Heís extremely in the way but itís cute, and he just repositions to sleep on my legs once I lie down.

Took Sinjin to the vet for his annual check up and they assured me he is perfect and beautiful. :catstare:

When I took him last year he was super shy and hid behind me. This time he was strutting his stuff and stood up on his hind legs for pets from the vet techs.

Here he is getting belly rubs while waiting for the tech to come back:
