A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

Anyone have any neighborhood stray cats they have a soft sport for?

I have like a dozen or more near where I live. But there is one tiny tiger cat that brings a small tear to my eye: He/she’s neck is constantly askew to the right. I guess it busted it’s neck as a kitten? Seems healthy otherwise, but seeing that tiny face at an angle look at me makes me feel so many feels.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 10:05am JakeGould:

The first time I saw that askew head kitten it was very cold ridden. Like a face full of crusted snot. Near a school so kids and parents were even worried about it. But it survived the cold spell—I assume someone took it inside—so happy it’s still around.

When I was in college there was a neighborhood cat who would come around and we let him in the apartment for visits even though we weren't supposed to have cats. He was a big soft black kitty. I would welcome a vistor cat now since I'm currently catless but there aren't any.

@BronwynB There used to be a show on WKCR that played only Theatrical and "commercial" music, from past shows that everyone forgot, cabaret songs (like Irene played on Tuesday), highlighting and interviewing performers who weren't even dead, and playing board and audition rarities. "Musical Theater Today". It stopped broadcasting about 20 years ago, and its enthusiastic and obsessive host Ezio Petersen died in 2016.

My neighborhood is full of cats, and my girlfriend and I have names for all of them. The best one is called AwesomeCat. He'll jump out in front of you and roll over for pets, and if you walk past he'll run ahead of you and do it again. Also, seconded on Kedi-- really wonderful film.

The village I walk to most mornings has a couple of cats who have the run of the place, that everyone pets and feeds, but as far as we know, are formally "staff-less."
Old joke: dogs have owners, cats have...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 10:13am JakeGould:

@melinda: Saw trailers. Seems good. The neighborhood I live in is very Middle Eastern so the attitude towards cats is decidedly non-Western: The cats basically come and go at will in shops. Sometimes at night the cats just become street cats until the morning and they go back into the store. They’re less pets and property and more “The cat that likes my store so I deal with them.”
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 10:13am Linda Lee:

Kedi = Turkish for 'kitty' & the name of one of mine. :-)

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 10:17am JakeGould:

@Brian: Nope, just a tiny tuft. Not a big patch like a tuxedo cat. Sometimes you can see it. Sometimes you can’t. When they get bigger you generally can see it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 2/15/18 10:17am melinda:

Agree that Kedi is mostly warm and happy, since Turkey has a culture of cat appreciation. I did wonder about cultural attitudes about spaying and neutering, which wasn't addressed in the film.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 10:18am βrian:

White tufts are adorable. So are bibs and socks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 10:18am Linda Lee:

if people are utilizing cats as rodent prevention & they're all provided for, i can see where spaying/neutering won't have the same importance.it's all about culture.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 10:18am BronwynB:

@WHenry: that sounds wonderful. as a teen i used to listen to the broadway channel on sirius xm which plays the same shit all the time and way too many shitty rock musicals (rock musicals are fine in theory but barely anyone seems to understand how to execute them well). i really should start playing more show tunes on my show because there's a real need imo for thoughtful and wide-ranging musical theatre radio programming, especially in this area.

FWIW, the fine if the Department of Health finds “evidence of vermin” in a shop is the exact same fine as if they find a cat in your shop in NYC. Last I knew, it was like a $350 fine. Damned if you do and damned if you don’t.

@Linda I saw a video about a woman in Istanbul who was spaying/neutering neighborhood cats because she saw the kitten population as too much, but she was an expat from somewhere else. There is probably a variety of attitudes among people there.

@LindaLee: Nah, it’s more like DoH inspections are a source of revenue or a method of bullying stores out of the neighborhood. I’ve seen more than a few businesses that were in the community for decades, no complaints and then suddenly… BOOM! Closed due to violations and then guess what happens? You find out the building was—or will be—sold.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/15/18 10:27am JakeGould:

Shouldn’t be shocking in NYC anymore. It’s easy to understand: The system is so burdened with complaints that nothing happens unless something is pushed to the head of the list. Have power in the community and want something gone? Just use your political pull to push a complaint to be acted on immediately and put someone out of business. It happens far more often than you can imagine.

Our cat PLW was a street cat who went in and out a lot. He'd come when you called for him! He got in a fight with some critter a year ago so we keep him indoors now.
I like store cats - but some people are allergic. There was a massive white cat called Fluffy at a pet store in Park Slope 20 years ago who was quite a fixture!

well sure. creative people have to create. i do get the idea that it's not create first, make-a-living second or third, as it was at one time. so you have an impact on the creative world.

Polydactyl kitty, whom I mentioned earlier, was very dog-like when it came to playing fetch. Fetch and retrieve, fetch and retrieve. She never got tired.

WKC is not nor has it ever been about the TYPE of dog, but always BEST IN BREED. I know you know that, we all do and yeah, I kinda' hate it when a topiaried poodle or a Bichon wins, but them's the breaks.

Actually, the border collie seemed the most magnificent. That was an intellectually focused animal.

But the gross ridiculous little white hairball, really? Travesty.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 2/15/18 10:50am Itzall Ablurr:

No, it's a little more specific than DOG. There are many breeds; fluffy, muttly, rotund, sissy, lap-squirrel, mauler, shakey & mastodon to name but a few.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 2/15/18 10:50am Jeff Moore:

But Kim pointed out one upside to this year's choice: the winning Westminster breed often gets bought a lot in the following year, and those silly little puffballs will make way lower-maintenance pets for naive people who buy a dog without proper research than a border collie or even a giant schnauzer.

I love Elif Batuman! Also, I just read "The Nightmare Stacks" by Charles Stross. It's the best book I've ever read about a romantically-inexperienced 24-year-old investment banking software engineer who accidentally turned himself into a vampire with advanced computational mathematics, then was basically forced into the secret British anti-occult civil service, and has to fight bloodthirsty feudal magical elves who are invading Leeds because they're fleeing a parallel universe full of Eldritch horrors.

It's very funny, yet the culture of the vicious, bloodthirsty elves is actually well-written and distinctive, too. It's a military dictatorship enforced by a magical chain of command. The culture shock that the invaders experience is really interesting.
