Filed under: General — Patterico @ 7:16 pm



If you know anyone in the L.A. area who is interested in one or more cats, please e-mail me at patterico AT patterico DOT com, or leave a comment below.

UPDATE: Eric Wilner points out in the comments that I was being too optimistic about what day of the week it is. Dagnabbit.

  1. Isn’t it a bit early for Thursday night catblogging?

  2. Why would anyone want a cat?

  3. Will put the word out.

    Are you hoping to keep them together or can they move into separate homes? If they’re older, will they be comfortable living with other new kitties (roommates)? Ages are helpful too.

    I have 5 now, otherwise I’d help. Cats are magnificent!

    Why would anyone want anything but a cat?

  6. Don’t care whether they stay together or not. In truth, it’s probably better for them to be separate.

  7. In a seven quart pot:

    Pour two tablespoons of olive oil;
    Heat on stove top at medium to low flame;
    Add a chopped onion and sautee until onion is glazed/lightly brown;
    Add chopped cat parts and brown them turning them over to brown all sides;
    When cat meat starts producing gravy add three heaping tablespoons (about 4 ounces) of tomato paste and stir in as if browning;
    Pour in four cups of water;
    Add salt, pepper, a pinch of cumin; two bay leaves (all to taste, how much do you like the stuff);
    Adjust heat, cover pot and simmer cat parts in sauce for about i hour;
    Add about the same weight in peeled onions as the weight of the cat parts;
    Add some red wine vinegar if you want to tone down the sweetness of the onions and tomato paste (recommended);
    Simmer on low heat until the onions are translucent and can be easily pierced through with a fork;
    Serve in a deep dinner plate to accomodate a good quantity of the sauce, with crusty bread and a salty cheese on the side.
    Rabbit or pheasant can be substitute for cat. If beef is used, it should be simmered for about two hours instead of one hour. Veal may work too but I do not recommend pork or chicken.

  9. Yow! My eyes are itching!

    Where are my dogs …

  10. #5 Angry Clam. That sounds good!

    I think cats are like politics. Our minds are made up… it’s rare if anyone can do anything to change it.

  11. Cats are the best pets ever. And anyone who disagrees is wrong.

  12. kittenrescue.org. helps adopt adult cats and problem cats as well. pretty good screening — i adopted my tabby a few months after my 21-year-old died.
