His name is Mitzvah!

I named the little boy kitty that I found. (Sorry, still no picture).

I read a book recently called "Postville" by Stephen Bloom, which chronicled the tensions between the transplanted Hassidic community and the locals of Postville, IA where the Hassidic Jews had opened a kosher slaughterhouse. The Jews didn't mingle with their neighbors, which led to some hurt feelings. When the author, Stephen Bloom, a Reform Jew who basically was nonobservant, came to interview the leaders of the community, he was asked by one of them about his family. When Bloom replied that he and his wife had one son, the leader (who had about eight kids so far) said with dismay, "Only one child you have, when children are such a mitzvah?"

Since I have a no cat policy, I'm afraid I'm going to have to bar Mitzvah.

Could be worse. I do have a bat.


Enjoy the buffet.

Here he is! Ain't he gorgeous? He's getting his little nutsies ripped off on December 21.





I think he heard the part about the nutsies in that second pic.

What a cutie! How are the girls getting along with him??

Someone here at work (who also works for a pet shelter in Brooklyn) posted an email about a 3 yr old black male cat that was burned and had his teeth kicked in. They need to find him a home (I'm seriously considering it!) Even with all the trauma, he is still very loveable (so they say). Some people can be so evil!!!!!

Good luck with him!!

In the first pic the cat looks like a sentry guarding Vibiana's VHS collection.

A moment of silence, if you please, for Mitzvah's recently departed little nutsies. Dr. Mary just called me and he came through surgery fine, with flying colors if you will, and is now sleeping peacefully in the recovery room. Poor little peanut. I plan to leave early to pick him up and spend a lot of time cuddling him tonight.

As this is my first tomcat-nutsie-removal experience, having had all girlkitties up until now, comparisons between the relative trauma of spaying vs. neutering would be welcomed if you have boykitties. Thanks.
