Just got some good news from AmyBlueKat:


We are now en route to Sister Rail Gun of Warm Humanitarianism’s house where lots of love and attention await.

I am beyond grateful for the outpouring of support I have received here in just 28 hours since I first posted. Bill Proctor – this would not have happened without you. May your heart finally rest in peace.

More on how Bill Proctor led to this happy pairing before he left us, here. May he rest in peace.

I told her we would need lots of pictures of the exchange. I will post them when I get them. I just thought we could use some good news today.

Open thread.



Kitten Bleg: These Sweet Cuties Looking For Homes

cute kitties

Newest jackal AmyBlueKat has two little foundlings all healthy and ready for their new homes. She’s even willing to transport. Right now they are in the Dallas area.

I found Maysie and brother Big Tux living in the woods beside a busy street in Texas.

They have been spayed, neutered, fully vaccinated, and dewormed.

They have been living indoors and outdoors, and are comfortable around people, other cats, and dogs.

They are very loving!

I will gladly transport them anywhere a good home awaits!

She doesn’t say they need to go together, but I can vouch that two are twice as much fun, but not really twice as much work. And look, they won’t need more than kibble, few toys, a quick vet visit, a litter box, and a lap or two.

You know you need them! Contact AmyBlueKat at amybluekat – at – gmail – dot -com or send me a note and I’ll connect you.

And welcome AmyBlueKat, we look forward to having you join the raucous playroom we call Balloon-Juice.


Respite (Sorta) Open Thread – Military Giant Cats

I could use a respite right now – I’ve been reading the tortured logic of some folks who claim that being able to fight a limited nuclear war, and believe that it won’t get worse, is absolutely necessary to keep a nuclear war from happening. The assumptions pile up in giant haystacks like Boris Johnson’s hair. (And hey, how about that first vote!)

This is something that my corner of Twitter is having a lot of fun with. A new account, started this month (like yesterday), called Military Giant Cats. They tweet out only photoshops of cats and military scenes. No comments, but others have been adding them. They have 48 tweets and over 14,000 followers. Some of my faves:

Saturday Morning Open Thread: CHONK

The Morris Animal Rescue twitter feed is currently full of adorable chonky (and imposter not-actually-that-chonky) cats.

And, of course, there is merch! PSA: Do *not* order this shirt as a gift unless you are very sure the recipient will not assume an implied criticism…
