I found this thread a little too late. Last night my cat who loved pinball passed away. It’s going to be very hard knowing she’s not going to be around rubbing against the legs and mine. Life is short, but your cats life is much shorter. Enjoy them everyday while you can. She was my girl, and I’m gonna miss her very much

Sorry for yor loss. I know the feeling as our cat of 13 years who loved pinball passed recently.

#2253 83 days ago

Thanks barr993

About an hour ago my backyard cam was tripped and when I initially looked out there, I couldn’t see anything. For a second I thought it might be her. Then I looked closer as could see 3 beams of light is what set it off, right where she she used to like laying the warm cement. Maybe somehow she’ll always be here. Home

Aaah man, really sorry to hear that. My buddy Lucky passed about a year and a half ago. Had to let him go in the vet's office... brutal. I still think about that. Glad you got the time that you got -

Hope lucky passed peacefully

Quoted from mollyspub:

Thanks... Not to be a downer, but he actually had a thyroid problem by the end, and we did the radiation 3 times for him, but it never took. He ended up not being able to breathe and his heart had enlarged too much to be able to pump in his little body. It was truly awful. He was a stray we took in and he was scared of all people until literally the day after my wife and I got married; he changed entirely overnight.. and we still got about 5 more years with him. Great little weirdo

Fantastic cat and pinball example with those two Roadshow pics.

Not a pinball picture, but still a cute picture. Violet hasn’t been allowed in the basement for awhile because I’ve been trying to get it finished so it’s a construction zone again.

Anyway, everyone left after a night of pinball and this is where she ended up around 1am while I was watching some TV. She hopped on my lap to take a nap so I naturally covered her up.

She’s my little Diva Princess.

While not a photo with a pinball, this freeloader hangs out outside my workshop.
Likely cause that is where I leave him some kibble
It was time to check the oil and he offered to assist.
Funny thing is, engine was cold!

But it was what *YOU* wanted to get to at the time, see. Just like tryin' to read a book or newspaper. Or laptop.

Or pin schematics, that seems to be a favorite!!
This one is so funny, even being an outside boy, if I try and sit for even a few seconds, poof he is in my lap.

Sadly, I lost both my kitties this last week

Snoopy (black) was 16 or so. He must have had some kind of stroke or something and had to take him in. He was a good cat. Not so much into pinball, very mouthy, and a little sneak frequently. For some reason, he always liked laying ontop of my crates of records...I gave in and had even wound up placing small towel over them as bedding for him eventually. Lol. And he loved his nip...lol.

Princess (orange) wound up with what I thought was a tooth problem and turned out, after testing etc, to be a fast growing tumor on side of face/chin. It got worse quickly over a couple weeks where she just couldn't even hardly eat soft food or drink. They said nothing could be done really. Absolutely broke my heart and devastated me....she was only 13. I loved Snoopy too, but she was my baby. NEVER left my side 24/7. She liked pinball, climbing on stuff, LOVED boxes (regardless if she couldnt even fit inside.....she didn't know she couldn't or didn't care lol), loved laying on plastic bags (no idea why), was the most loyal cat I've ever been around. Almost never spoke. Was kinda small little shorty girl who loved to explore ANYTHING in the house; especially if even just one thing got moved around; had to investigate.

Sorry for pic bombard...hard to chose a few out of so many.

I'm thankful for my time with them both. They will be missed more than I can say....RIP kitties....

Thanks for support and reading this.

I look forward to continuing to enjoy seeing all your guys' furry owners on here

And an extra thanks to OP for creating this thread...

I am SO sorry to hear this

One is hard enough, but both in the same week. Just remember the good lives you gave them and the happiness they (and you) had while they were here!

Well said.

I'm sorry you are going through this.

So, so so sorry to hear. They were loved - and look fat and happy (annoyed?) in the pics. Hopefully, in the future you'll find another one to share pinball (and vinyl, it looks like) with!

Quoted from pacmanretro:

Sometimes it is very hard to be a pet parent, sorry to hear of your double loss!
As you know, cats choose you, I'm sure you will be chosen again very soon.

Thanks coyote...lol, probably mostly happy and lazy...but I did probably eventually annoy with pics all the time (just like people do. Lol).

Yeah, snoopy liked laying on my LPs , but Princess always went to the boxes of 45s. She would constantly be right there....I think she just wanted the boxes

Think I posted a pic of her in vinyl thread a while back...but here's extra just for fun

Sorry to hear Pacman. You got some wonderful years with them. Every cat has its only personality never to be replicated, never to be replaced.

Thanks. Yeah, they definitely each had their own. I've been home a lot more lately, so was real used to them being around me all the time. Definitely have that, I can't replace them feeling pretty hard.

When I'm ready, maybe another personality will wind up finding me...like Atari_Daze mentioned

#2283 80 days ago
Quoted from wolfemaaan:

So true. They are their own little furry person. Makes me wish I was home with my fur babies instead of at work.

pacmanretro Sorry for your loss. I know that feeling.

#2284 80 days ago

[goes and hugs his cats before going back to work]

Sorry to hear about your friends. I still hear and see the shadows of all my previous furry friends.

Yes. My wife has a great sense of humor. She said she just wants to laugh when the vet techs have to call his name in the waiting room.

Sadly, wink’s one eye and the resulting lack of depth perception will forever limit her flipping abilities.

Also, no thumbs.

Went to chewy.com today to order some wet can food for our 9 cats
and every wet cat food i clicked on said sorry we are temporarily out of stock.
No problems with ordering dry cat food, though.
My wife is panicking.
I am not worried as we have 2 cases of cheap tuna on the shelf. (about a 3 week supply)
We go thru two cans a day on average.
I always buy whenever its on sale, but did notice last weekend
tuna was one of the items that was barren from some store shelves.

interesting. Luckily (I suppose) our cats need a prescription diet. Those items were all listed as in stock today when our auto-shipment was placed. Hope you can find what you need for your kitties!

Went to Wal-Mart and got loaded up.
Truthfully I was only attempting to order fancy feast brands, but i must have clicked on a dozen different flavors to no avail.
Basically what i drew from Chewy.com shortage, is that people care about the welfare of their cats, even in bad times.
The stockpile at Walmart was somewhat limited but far from bare.
