An Unexpected Two Hours...

I virtuously got up early this morning in order to go for a workout ride before work, and virtue being its own reward, Trainer Mel had to cancel, forget why, either death in the family, viral pneumonia or a holiday party that was earlier than she expected. Anyway, I found myself with two free hours!

And I thought perhaps I should do a post, as today will be a bit busy, tomorrow more busy and then I have gigs all weekend which makes for some more busy, and now we are up to Sunday, and by then you have forgotten me, gone off and formed your own country, built upon the shores of 500 or so comments....

Clearly, I need something exciting this morning.

Perhaps pictures of King Lear the Huge and Queen Mab the Dainty?

OK.



These Kitties get more fun every day. They are still getting used to me, and too close is not too good, but they come out every time I go in the room now, and I have done pets on Queen Mab.



Lear, as you can see is a big guy. Not 30 pounds, tho I make it 20 or very close.



The are truly two of the most beautiful Bengals I have ever seen, but more importantly, they are not damaged. They can love, and really want to love. They love to play, and we get further into it every day. Someone is going to be very, very lucky. The King and Queen are SO much further along than the Jungle Loves were. Lear is an F2, but I haven't seen any sign that he has any problems, and Mab an F4.



We are looking for a home for them. They need to stay together, they love each other SO. And their new Friend needs to be a women or perhaps two women, who have no plans to add any men to the household. Lear's one issue is he does not seem to like men. It is possible that his last home was simply the wrong one, tho I know of nothing the Gentleman did wrong exactly. Lear had no litterbox issues in his first home (the women moved away) or his foster home (tho she says she was fine with him, her husband could not get near)

There should also, I believe, be no other pets or children. I would keep them in a second, they are that much fun, but I believe they deserve their own home, and their own person who will love only them, someone who will come home at the end of the day and call out to them, like I do Venus and Mim, and have them come running up for love.



Love and Long Live King Lear and Queen Mab!
Lorraine

They are beautiful cats!

And look, I finished something at work, so taking a break, and there's a shiny new post to comment on!

 
At 7:18 AM , Blogger Phiala said...

Oh, I knew there was something else - yes, let's build our own country!

(No, this time I didn't forget to check the email box, just forgot what I was going to say... SQL does that to your brain, I'm afraid.)

 
At 7:20 AM , Blogger spacedlaw said...

So cute and loveable! I hope you'll find them a good home.

Am beyond busy (stealing time to comment).

 
At 7:21 AM , Blogger spacedlaw said...

and crumbs. Forgot the blooming box too.

 
At 7:27 AM , Blogger bengalgirl said...

Great Pictures and you gave them the space they needed to adjust. Now they can get down to the pleasures of engaging in bengal play. Bet they have fun in the tunnel! I'm not quite ready to list them for adoption to the general public but if anyone here knows the perfect owner, just let Lorraine know.

 
At 7:29 AM , Blogger Jess said...

I never check the email box! And then I get lonely becuase no one emails. Fuh! You gets what you pays for.

Look at those happy and curious kitties! It's good that they've got such a good chance.

Re: end of last thread-- I'm sneaky like that, Q. :D

*sneaks*

 
At 7:37 AM , Blogger Jess said...

Look! I killed the thread! ;P

 
At 7:43 AM , Blogger Phiala said...

Does that make us all zombies now??

*braaaaiiiinnnss*
*spiiiiiccccyyy brraaaiiiiiiinns*

Actually, I could use some more, but there's a shortage 'round here I'm afraid.

 
At 7:44 AM , Blogger spacedlaw said...

No you did NOT.
Do you want to hear about Thrust Vector Control? I don't...

 
At 7:46 AM , Blogger Jess said...

Yeah, thrust me some vectors. I'm bored.

Braaaains. \@/ <---- ZOMBIE HEAD

 
At 7:46 AM , Blogger Phiala said...

Nathalie can contribute Thrust Vector Control, and I'll season it with SQL code, and...

aren't you glad we AREN'T chattering away???

 
At 7:47 AM , Blogger Phiala said...

OH, trust us... you aren't THAT bored, Jess.

 
At 7:48 AM , Blogger spacedlaw said...

Yeah. Don't you have some packing to do?

 
At 7:49 AM , Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

Fods, I take a phone call and look what happens!

I agree Janet, they aren't ready for a general listing, but if the right home comes from the Fiends, we can certainly look at the situation...

 
At 7:49 AM , Blogger spacedlaw said...

But if you insist (or need soporific reading material)

 
At 7:50 AM , Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

I had to comment on the cats as I have NO idea what you lot are talking about...

 
At 7:51 AM , Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

Ok, now I am really lost. Trust me to wake up to the science types. Dr Score ought to be checking in at any moment

 
At 7:52 AM , Blogger spacedlaw said...

Good for you Lorraine. It'd be incredibly sad if you did.
Kitties are SO much more important.
They are fuzzy.
They are cuddly.
They purr.
They don't necessarily cost a fortune.
They are bundles of joy.

 
At 7:53 AM , Blogger Jess said...

It's a driver's manual for a spaceship! How is that not cool?

Packing, schmacking, Nathalie. I hate packing! Bleah!! Don't worry-- I'll do it during the Stretchy Hour.

 
At 7:57 AM , Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

Now you are speaking words I can understand, Nat-law!

Jess, does this packing have anything to do with this spaceship???? I just worry sometimes...

 
At 7:59 AM , Blogger Phiala said...

At least Nathalie has rocket ships.... I have only computer code. *pout*

I do have lots of photos taken by satellites tho, those are fun.

 
At 8:02 AM , Blogger spacedlaw said...

Those are wonderful indeed.
My favourite being the 3D ones taken of Mars (coming from our own Mars Express, of course, I suppose NASA has some equivalent).

 
At 8:03 AM , Blogger Jess said...

Q, don't worry. The packing and the spaceships are unrelated. I'm not going into space.

 
At 8:06 AM , Blogger spacedlaw said...

Now that is something I would not mind. But I can't afford the costs of the trip, nor the one year training before.

 
At 8:08 AM , Blogger Jess said...

I'm kind of afraid of the idea of going into space. I mean: what if HAL refused to open the pod bay doors? Again? Or sliced my tether?

Mind you, when the earth goes nuclear, we'll all have to make for Mars anyway. Fear of space travel won;t enter into it then.

 
At 8:26 AM , Blogger Arwenn said...

...Fiends....in....Space.....

 
At 8:35 AM , Blogger Phiala said...

*snort*

 
At 8:51 AM , Blogger Marjorie said...

Oohh, pretty kitties! And if anyone can lend me some stretchy time I'll go back and read all the other posts and comments too.

I haven't quite got my brain back into work mode yet.. But if we manage to put Fiends in Space I definitely want to come. (We won't lie to HAL before we set off, then he will be OK)

Do you think the bengals will come too?

 
At 8:54 AM , Blogger na said...

Ooooh! Mab is dainty, in't she? Good to see happy(/ier) kitties.

Laughing my way through the comments. Ought be getting back to writing about measurement. :P Mars ships sound much more interesting...

I think of HAL whenever I meet someone named Dave: "Dave? What are you doing Dave?"

 
At 8:56 AM , Blogger Arwenn said...

I've always wanted to visit Planet Koozbain...

 
At 8:57 AM , Blogger na said...

LOL Fiends in Space - do a little dominating of the solar system

 
At 8:59 AM , Blogger Jess said...

Fiends in Space? I'm afraid I can't do that, Dave.

However, I can manage Muppets in German. Schweine im Weltall!

 
At 9:02 AM , Blogger Marjorie said...

I nominate Jess as mission controller. That way, you canstay on earth and direct us as to which particular bit of Space we should dominate at any given moment.

I don't think I can cope with Muppets in German right now. Maybe later, when I'm not supposed to be working...

 
At 9:09 AM , Blogger Arwenn said...

Ground Control to Major Fiend...

 
At 9:12 AM , Blogger Jess said...

Sorry. Just taking my protein pills.

 
At 10:19 AM , Blogger gaypet said...

Lovely pix of lovely kitties!

Fun chat today. I want to go to space too. I'll bring pie.

 
At 10:28 AM , Blogger scored4life said...

Check ignition, and may Fod's love be with you....

Ooooh! Can I be the science officer and look through my bright light viewfinder to describe the condition of the new planets?

As a trivia side note, does everyone know where they came up with the name HAL?

 
At 10:33 AM , Blogger Jess said...

I do not know, Chief Science Officer Score! Please to elaborate.

Space pie!!! \o/ That's official, then: Gayle is Pie Commander.

 
At 10:39 AM , Blogger spacedlaw said...

I do. I thought it was common knowledge too, but apparently I was wrong!

 
At 10:41 AM , Blogger Phiala said...

I think the expedition needs (at least) two science officers!

I know where HAL came from, and like Nathalie am surprised that not everyone does.

 
At 10:47 AM , Blogger na said...

Pie Commander - *giggles*

I also thought HAL name source was common knowledge. Or maybe it's sci-fi/geek lore-apocraphya?

I vote for a stop by Titan to see the cryovolcanoes. :)

 
At 10:51 AM , Blogger scored4life said...

I just wanted to look through the cool glowing viewer thingy. I'll try not to get pie all over it.

"It looks as if the continent on the southern hemisphere is submerged in some kind of gelatinous fruit....no, wait a minute, scratch that."

It's not often I get to reference a science movie that was made before I was born.

The story has it that HAL was created by shifting the letters of IBM.

Philia, you definitely need to be a science officer. Do we jet cool outfits with gizmos designed by Dan attached to our belts?

 
At 10:55 AM , Blogger Amy said...

How's this for sad....
I never heard of HAL and had to go google it to see what it was.

I fail in computer and space geek. Booo!

 
At 11:00 AM , Blogger spacedlaw said...

Planet earth is blue and there's nothing I can do...
Which is really a shame for I'd rather have it purple (with sparkly skulls).
Or at least blue like an orange

Oh yes, cool outfits with gizmos! It's all about the gizmos...

 
At 11:46 AM , Blogger spacedlaw said...

Let's see... Gizmos are the ones you cna't feed after mdnight, right?

 
At 11:50 AM , Blogger Phiala said...

And definitely don't get them wet!

 
At 12:08 PM , Blogger scored4life said...

Set your furby to stun, I'm going in.

 
At 12:15 PM , Blogger Arwenn said...

Hmmm....furby vs. tribble..... wonder who would win?

 
At 12:36 PM , Blogger Stacy said...

The King & Queen are certainly beauties and worthy of the most discriminating fuzzlovers. Wish it could be me but can't wait to read about them finding their new lovely all girl home where they can romp and play and give all the loves they canz to their lucky servants!

This season is beyond busy for me. The gal that I did the dragonfly memory quilt now wants another quilt as well as 4 pillows. Meantime; I'm stitching like mad the deconstructed wedding dress wall hangings that are due this Friday! Forget about shopping or eating or cleaning or anything else. I SO need an assistant too!!! Love and hugs & catnips to all the fiends! Checking in when I can.

 
At 12:37 PM , Blogger na said...

Again with the talking dolls. I'd root for the tribble.

 
At 12:37 PM , Blogger Stacy said...

LOL; I recently introduced Ellen to Gizmo from the original 'Gremlin's' movie. They were so much cuter than the later editions of Furbys.

Set your Furby to Stun! LOL Brilliant!

 
At 12:43 PM , Blogger Stacy said...

it goes without saying that the ones that were 'evil' so quickly stole the show. "Stripe" was my favorite; smoking the whole pack of cigs (all at the same time); drinks in each hand and slowly he just falls over backwards in a cloud of smoke & leather!

 
At 12:49 PM , Blogger spacedlaw said...

They were great. You wouldn't want them in your house but they're a riot.

 
At 12:58 PM , Blogger Stacy said...

sadly; i think one of them does live in my house & her name is Ms. Stella O'Houligan. She's been locked in the house due to our inclement weather. She doesn't like it; not one bit. When she gets tired of sleeping on 'her chair with her woobie' she terrorizes the other girls. The look she gets on her face is enough to make me roll in laughter; someday I must capture it on film.

 
At 1:07 PM , Blogger Ceridwen said...

Wow. How do these threads get so off-topic? It's like being inside my head - I love it! :D My inner linguist so very much wants to do a conversation analysis of this...
Aaanyway, to the actual comments:

King and Queen are indeed magnificent, and if I didn't live halfway across the planet sharing a tiny flat with two other girls and a Persian (cat, that is), I'd have them in a heartbeat. *siiiigh* One day... one day.

Schweine im Weltall - ahh, childhood memories... Yet another reason to be embarrassed by my native tongue. Though I always liked Miss Piggy's voice.

Fiends in Spaaaaaace and gremlins vs tribbles: I'm on board - just please don't make me a redshirt!

 
At 1:22 PM , Blogger Arwenn said...

I love it here....kind of a shared stream of consciousness :)

 
At 1:52 PM , Blogger Ceridwen said...

Stream of consciousness, that was the term I was racking my brains for! Thanks, Arwenn! :)

 
At 1:52 PM , Blogger Dragonsally said...

Am I too late for the space party? Damn. My first laptop was named after Hal, and he behaved beautifully until he got a bit slow (must have been very small people pulling bits out of his motherboard when I wasn't looking) This new one SHOULD be called Hal as it went crazy on me last night and I had to go back to an earlier restore point. Phht.

Ahh, Jess you've taken your protein pills - but have you put your helmet on?

King Lear and Queen Mab have stolen my heart. If I was a lone wolf I'd have them in a flash.

 
At 1:52 PM , Blogger Dragonsally said...

And I have to leave a silly second comment after the tick the email box turned up.

Wait, Science officer Score wants a what? A Lite Brite viewer?

That's just weird.

 
At 2:10 PM , Blogger Arwenn said...

I've been lobbying for a Foster Fiend program, but nothing yet :)

 
At 2:20 PM , Blogger Beez said...

Ceri- a redshirt with your hair and complexion?

Could rock you know :P

 
At 2:51 PM , Blogger Phiala said...

Oohh... You've got to not like any weather forecast that involves "heavy accretions of freezing rain". As if last night and this morning, with ice, rain and slush falling from the sky were not enough fun, that's the prediction for tomorrow night and Friday.

All this crappy weather, and no time off work! *pout*

I should go home, I think, having reached the point of negative progress, and apparently whininess.

Oh, and yay lite brite! I now want a lite brite planet viewer, though I'd be happy to share with my fellow Science Officer, and any other fiends who want to see the pretty, pretty planets.

 
At 4:12 PM , Blogger na said...

Beez, pure awesomeness - takes Lite Brite to a whole new level, that skull does! And Skull-a-day. w00t

Does a Fiendish Spaceship have shuttles or transporters?

 
At 4:33 PM , Blogger na said...

Wow - Fiends of LA, I just heard that it's expected to get cold enough for possible snow in the Hollywood Hills. Eek! I don't think it's snowed in LA county since ca 1979.

 
At 5:26 PM , Blogger Dan Guy said...

What is that thing? Did the cats kill a clown?

 
At 5:28 PM , Blogger Dan Guy said...

Once I work out the kinks in this weather satellite, ALL WILL BOW BEFORE MY SNOW ONSLAUGHT! Because you can't have snow troopers without snow.

 
At 7:07 PM , Blogger ivenotime said...

uhh danth, avoid the midwest. repeat, avoid the midwest, i got five inches last night and a foot is projected for thursday and i am way to used to sitting on the snowplow......have mercy.......

 
At 7:09 PM , Blogger EmilyLady said...

I do hope they find somewhere wondeful and worthy. They sound like very special Bengals.

~The Masked Fiend

 
At 7:18 PM , Blogger Beez said...

No no no Sue- let Dath come here.

We can point and laugh mockingly at his SNOW ONSLAUGHT! *snicker*

Then we can lock him outside in the -45 windchill.

.....and point and laugh mockingly.

AAAAAAHHHH!!!hehehehehehehehehehhehehe

ROTFLMAOLTNT!!!!

oh, and on another subject:

Stacy, do you Etsy??

 
At 8:05 PM , Blogger EmilyLady said...

The gaze of a Furby sends chills up my spine.

 
At 8:28 PM , Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

NOT a clown. Clowns are scary. At least I don't THINK it is a clown. They run thru it. Ok, it's a weird thing to have in a bedroom.

Going to do a short post now...

 
At 8:35 PM , Blogger Dragonsally said...

I can't help but think that "Brains...spicy Brains" should be on a Fiends t'shirt.

 
At 8:38 PM , Blogger AletaMay said...

Huh. Somehow I have not yet commented on this post. Those royals look like they are very comfortable in their foster home. They are really lovely.

Dan. Could you aim that snow at LA or Hawaii for awhile please.

 
At 8:40 PM , Blogger DataGoddess said...

*sings* "We're Fiends out in space..." (think the end of History of the World, Part I)

Oh, so pretty kitties!! And I discovered we can't have any pets per our lease, so I need to find people close to me to visit!

(am currently in hiding from the freezing rain we're supposed to get tomorrow. I keep pointing out to Husband that he shouldn't be studying what weather does, but how to control it *MUWAHAHAHAHAH*)

Calling occupants of interplanetary,
Most extraordinary craft.

Their Majesties are beautiful! I'm sure they will find a home worthy of them. :)

Remember the arctic front that just blew through the plains a couple of days ago? We just hot it back as a warm front last night. We have dense fog, the highs for the next three days are projected to be 69, 70, and 71. The next arctic front is expected on Sunday, late, then highs around 40 on Monday and Tuesday. ::sigh:: It's amazing that anyone in Central Texas is healthy this time of year.

 
At 8:43 PM , Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

Just in case anyone wonders what was going on tonight...

New post up!

 
At 8:50 PM , Blogger ivenotime said...

oh beez, snort, snicker, yeah, c'mon, give it your best shot danth...
