Rusty is not a Sloth

Hi, this is Rusty again.I hope you can recognize me by now.  I'm the huge furry kitty and I'm here to introduce today's post.

At the moment we're discussing luggage sets. We don't go anywhere we need luggage for but we could always store our toys and it would be prestigious to be able to say we furries have a luggage set of our own.We might even loan it to Jan if she goes anywhere, which she better NOT because who would scoop our poop?  We could even start a luggage rental company.  You travel with our luggage - for a fee, of course.  We haven't agreed on anything yet, but we'll get back to you when we decide. 

We had a comment last night from Josh, manager of the local Petsense.  One of the dilute torties was adopted.  Don't know which one.  Jan is going to try to stop there this afternoon and find out.  They might even have a new cat or two available from the local shelter. We'll try to post them as we can.  Petsense is doing well on their own with the adoptions but we figure the more exposure the better since so many cats are killed in a shelter.

Update: This is the tortie that was adopted yesterday. The other is still available.

And a little fun -

Meet the Sloths.  No, seriously, meet the sloths.  This video was filmed at Aviaros del Caribe sloth sanctuary in Costa Rica, where orphaned baby sloths are taken when their mother is run over on the highway or killed by power lines. We didn't realize how cute a baby sloth can be until we saw them in Daily Squee.

If the video doesn't play, click here.

And we just have to add this one about potty training at the sloth orphanage. It's funny.

  1. The two sloths copying the Lady and the Tramp spaghetti scene were particularly cute...of course they weren't eating spaghetti. :-)

    Hurrah for the adoption of one of the torties...I hope she has a GOOD forever home. Paws crossed for all the cats and kittens that so desperately need homes.

  2. we laffed at the sloth poo video, MOL!!! great news about the adoption.

  3. How funny to see the baby sloth fall over with the duck:) The Momster wonders if that potty training method would work with human pups - just a little tap on the bottom and voila!!!
