My wife loves your cat!

This is HER machine now. She jumps from the top of the backbox to the top of the refrigerator, and then does the reverse. She missed once when jumping from the refrigerator to the top of the backbox, and fell to the ground. I felt sooooo bad for her. But she just walked it off!

Man, shes punching the shit out of Doc Oc that's for sure

#1054 11 months ago

Hahaha true effect,no Photoshop,I like it.
It's a combo-one from Spiderman and one from the Cat.
I have three cats,but my machines are in the basement so they don't have the chance to walk on them and to leave their clues.

I have three as well. 2 of them love the machines. My loner, Lucy occasionally likes to sit up top. But this one, Polly, the one in the photo is the trouble maker. I have a Silverball Mania in the bedroom. She is obsessed with that backglass - probably because of the mirrors. Late at night, she will stare into the backglass, then stand up and keep pawing at the backglass, it's extremely LOUD at 3 in the morning. I have to keep the backbox covered with a blanket now!

I clearly need to get my cat a pinball!

Cat Rant
Our two youngest (Tippy and MoJo) got into big mischief last night, at about midnite
knocking over a 7ftx6ft mirror we have against the living room wall.
huge crashing noise, then cats come scrambling back into bedroom.
They must have crawled behind then pushed it away from the wall
it fell forward knocking against a sofa table and onto the sofa.
fortunately this big heavy mirror did not break, just a few scratches
but it did knock over the table and an art glass sculpture piece
which then broke in half.
Wife is heart broken as the piece was an engagement gift from a vacation in Mexico.

#1058 10 months ago

Yup.
They're cats. Sorry to hear, but.. you love them. Right?

About two months ago, I started coming home to water all soaking into the carpet around their fountain. (It's a small water fountain, holds two gallons of water, and keeps it 'fresh'..)

After about two weeks of constant wet carpet, I come home to find not only the carpet wet, but the water fountain EMPTY. Artie apparently played so much in it that he splashed out two gallons worth of water onto the carpet.

..AND, into the basement.
Where my games and server are.

I go running downstairs, to find one of my Rush the Rock games *soaked*. Luckily it's real wood and not MDF, so it dried out and was fine. And luckily it did not get on any of my pins.

Now, the water stays up near the kitchen sink.

#1059 10 months ago

I'm not liking it for what they did but sympathy. Lol! Glad to hear it wasn't worse.

#1060 10 months ago

We have two... Ellie isn't too bright... I can tell not only for the things she does but how our other cat sits up on her perch looking at Ellie giving her looks like "you moron..."

One day while we were unloading groceries Ellie decided to explore one of the cloth bags. On her way out she went through the handle and it snagged on her rear legs.... then of course the bag is now following her... and chasing her... and grabbing her!

HOLY COW!!! Panic attack cat in 15 seconds runs through every room of the house up along the walls like a stock car turning along the bank knocking down lamps, sending papers flying, you name it.

Bella, disturbed by the rukus looks at her... "you moron."

Very glad to have rescued this little guy and I think he is doing the same for our house. He feels all of us with such joy and love.

Good looking cat

#1067 10 months ago

Thank you. We got him Thursday from the shelter and it's been amazing. He is the most social interactive cat I have ever meet. He loves to play and cuddle with all 4 of us.

Get another kitten.

They will be best buds for life.

It is recommended that they have a companion when they are kittens. It really is not much harder to take care of two over one.

My 2 are brother and sister. They are constantly playing.

In fact it is easier since they aren't constantly on you to play

Funny thing was the first day he had to get used to the tv and surround sound and the second day he got used to the pin noise. He's not interested in getting too close yet to the pins though. I'm blessed that my wife is able to be home all day with him or two would have definitely been the way to go. This thread has always put a smile on my face and feels great to have been able to join.

I'd still get 2.

#1076 10 months ago

The rescue groups usually make you get two because they say kittens forget how to be a cat without having another one around.

Agree on getting 2 cats, if possible over one. Everybody (everypet) deserves to grow up with a brother or sister and adopted siblings count every bit as much.

#1078 10 months ago

He is 3 months old and was turned in by himself 2 weeks ago. So no brothers and sisters the poor little guy

#1079 10 months ago

These guys are brothers. But they fight as much as they play! Especially when they see someone else's cat in our yard!

Capcom playfields lift straight up. As soon as it was up the other day our kitty jumped in the cabinet.

Yeah. My older cat goes to look out the front window every night to stand guard
If she sees a fox or another cat outside she then promptly comes running to our other cat to swat at her and hiss.

Ours do EXActly the same thing. Except the one who sees the fox is also the one who gets swatted!

Action?

This is what ours do all the time. Accidentally took this in slow motion, but it's actually better that way!

This is Lily. She doesn't really care too much for pinball, but she does have an opinion on putting LEDs in EMs.

I could not find one of our 6 cats the other day.
Turns out he (LeRoy) found a new hiding spot, inside my BLY Embryon.
That particular game is on its legs, but with the head folded down.
The cat managed to crawl thru the hole in the bottom of the head
where the wires flow out of the backbox.

I have since stuff the hole with a bath towel, until further notice.

Cats are liquid.

#1097 10 months ago

I never saw him crawl out/into the hole,
but found tell tale evidence of clumps of his cat hair at the hole entrance.
He sheds a lot, what with his beautiful long coat and mane.

Maybe they smell fish from Barracora.

Chillin' on the games. When I started playing, she casually moved over to the next game for a better view.

What a polite kitty

Best "Casual" moving mine seems to do is help out by going from laying at top to sitting over flippers. Lol.
