Kat Klub

Post by dualstow » Sun Mar 22, 2020 9:37 am

As long as this forum is going full cat, there may as well be a space to talk about them as the main coronavirus thread is already getting pretty ungainly.

That's my little girl in the new avatar, telling me it's time to get off the tablet and play.

Great idea dualstow!

Ridiculously cute photo of my two Siberian cats below. I swear they know that something is amiss in the world. Their appetites have gone down a bit and they are more demanding about being petted. Especially when I'm on a conference call. They've put in an appearance on Zoom a couple times already.

Possibly useful cat food tip: I feed my cats raw food. The absolute king of raw food companies was Rad Cat, until they were forced out of existence by an FDA pogrom last year. My cats adored their food (as most cats do) but it was CRAZY expensive. My local pet store still has a stock of the last of their product in the freezer. It just passed the expiration date, so they're selling it for about 1/4 the original price. I got a couple of tubs and it's perfectly good, so I'm going to go back and buy out the rest of the stock. I have a small chest freezer at -10 degrees, and it'll be fine in there for a while.

They’re beautiful, even without the halo. (But they deserve that daguerro-halo).

A friend of mine really spoils his cats with specially made and delivered people food. Not raw, though. Cooked by a chef. I forget the company name.

Hilarious! Let me know if you find out the name of the company? I'm just curious.

I suspect my cats would not care about how lovingly prepared their food is. Their idea of a gourmet meal is the ground rabbit I order from an online producer, who sources it locally. Other than that, they get Nature Variety frozen chicken or Honest Kitchen dehydrated turkey. The rabbit, mixed with storebought chicken that I cook briefly and cut up plus a premade supplement, is about half the cost of the commercial foods.

Not sure how my cats maneuvered me into doing all that for them, but they are cunning little devils!

Thanks, Vin.
So far I haven’t been able to find anything that rings a bell, Sophie, but if you look at katkin, it looks kind of like that.
But fancier.

Since HappyMan had requested way back in December 2019 of pictures of ALL my pets I'm taking the liberty expand Kat Klub to all pets...

Well I had all the picture attaching here and with captions. But then got this error message for every picture. Is there a size limit for attachments? All my pictures are between 6.1 MB and 8.8 MB in size.

There isn't too much reason to upload an enormously high resolution picture here, but there currently isn't a board limit. But PHP has a configuration setting for the max amount of memory it will use to process an upload before it dies. I've changed that from 10MB to 50MB. Maybe that will help?

We recently retired the cat bed we bought our cat. She wasn't using it, so we decided to put it up on top of one of our bookshelves. This is the result...

For the money you can't afford to lose, why would you invest it in anything other than the PP? ???

It looks to be the right orientation to me. It's possible that browsers differ in how they honor EXIF instructions in JPEG.

Who is "we"?

Yeah, that happened last time. I uploaded a picture and the orientation was weird on my browser. I just sort of shrugged, but when I logged in later the orientation fixed itself. Weird.
