June's stupid life · My pets

Rushin’, so no time to tell you about my Russian

Russian
I have to go to work early today, of all days. But (a) Roger loves him. LOVES. (2) Does everyone have fleas now? Cause that's gonna cost me. (14) Do you like the name Pavlov, Sputnik or Stanford Blatch? I can't decide.

Oh, and he hates us. He spent the night hiding in the closet. Maybe because he's blue. BAH! He's a "pure bread" half Russian Blue/half Maine Coon, according to Craigslist. He is a "pure bread" as much as I am. From my vast menagerie of expensive top-of-the-line check-their-lineage pets, you can see I am into that sort of thing. I just liked him because he was gray. And no, there were NO KITTENS at the shelter. I am not making that up.

Okay, I have to go to work! Oh, and if anyone local is looking for an adult cat, there was one at the shelter who KILLED ME and I can tell you all about her when I am not swamped with work stuff. She is beautiful and so nice. Someone go get her. I am full up now. She is also a "pure bread." Really, tho, she has cream points and blue eyes and I HAVE TO GO TO WORK.

  1. June, please go get that beautiful cream points girl at the shelter. Everyone always wants kittens while the adults languish in shelters! LANGUISH, I tell you! So go get her! you’ll keep thinking about her if you don’t……just think..it would be so great ’cause then we could all spend another whole day on this blog picking out a name for THAT kitty. And talking about the Vancouver Canucks who need to win the Stanley Cup this year ’cause it’s long overdue for a Canadian team to win. Said the Canadian girl living in Texas.

  4. Here’s how I chose my second cat’s name:
    “These are my cats, Roger and Stanford.”
    “These are my cats, Roger and Anderson Cooper.”
    “These are my cats, Roger and Andy.”
    Etc. Which one sounds the best? 🙂
    I like Andy. Roger Sterling and Anderson Cooper. Rrrowr.

  12. Mr. Horkheimer had Maine Coon in him. He had about 9390304 mice, birds, lizards, bunnies, small children and a couple slow-moving old people in him, too. He had those big Maine Coon paddle paws, is what I am saying to you. Also, all these comments that mention sports? This is how I am reading them: bluh bluh bluh Cup bluh bluh bluh Ice bluh bluh bluh Sports.

  16. Maine Coone = hair ball
    I have one and love the rotten cat.
    Be prepared. Maine Coons act like a dog/monkey combo.
    They are freakishly long and have amazing “paw” dexterity …so that means that these cats can get up on their hind legs (gaining amazing height) and reach up to door knobs/handles. Plus, they like to follow you around and will sit beside you, more than being a lap cat…which it’s hard to be a lap cat when you’re a cat that’s about 36 inches long when stretched out.
    My cat can open five of the inside door knobs…”click” and push is his method. And everything is a game…
    That’s a very cute pair of kitties Junie!

    The cup was at the 2010 Chicago Gay Pride Parade. So now I am okay with it. It serves a purpose other than to stroke the egos of rich owners and testosterone-filled players.

  33. Siren, of course June has already selected kitty’s name. She just needed something for all of us to discuss today while she was busy working. Little did she know that it would evolve into sports, but it is her fault. With Stanford as one of the choices, it led to Stanley which led to the Stanley Cup and hockey.

  36. I don’t think I ever talked about sports this much in my life!
    I think the Minder is allowed to go to the bathroom and yes, oftentimes, depending on what the plan is for the day, there are two minders.
    And probably they do get the Cup for one day, Hulk, but Jay got it quite a bit. I don’t know it it’s because the general manager uses it on behalf of the entire team. For instance, I do know Jay brought it to local schools and to MacDill Air Force Base. But he also had it at their house three times and then he had a party at the Ice Forum with it. So, I don’t know. It’s really ironic that I’m answering these questions, because I know about as much as June when it comes to sports.
