Tabby Tuesday

Orange tabby boy Evan loves boxes. After all, he is a cat. The other day, I tried to get a shot of Evan doing his best to fit him and his little paralyzed back legs in a box that may or may not be too small for such a purpose. When I aimed the camera at him, though, Evan got excited and I ended up with action shots bordering on bloopers. See?

Evan wishes you a terrific Tuesday filled with boxes!

Flashback Doodle of the Day

Like yesterday, today we're sharing a flashback doodle inspired by the fun hobbies of reading and writing. Of course, there's always a kitty there to help with both of those pastimes.

Did you know?

Yesterday we discussed why intact male cats are called toms, or tomcats. In response to that, our friends over at Eastside Cats commented that they wonder what a neutered male cat is called. And that comment inspired our bit of trivia for today. So, what's a neutered male cat called? The answer is a gib. A neutered male cat is called a gib. And while intact female cats are called queens, what about spayed female cats? The answer to that one is that a spayed female cat is called a molly.

Way to go Evan! You were mostly in that box before your Mom came along with a camera and ruined it all (hahaha). You absolutely get a "10" for the effort!

Hugs, Teddy

OH! Thank you for this information!
I've tried searching online in the past, but only received gobbledy gook.
Gib and Molly: neutered
Tom and Queen: intact
Woo Hoo!

We think that TOTALLY counts as being in the box. Cat's prerogative!

Evan certainly looked determined. Nothing but gibs and mollys in our house.
