I was wondering if you had a date to Alpaca Nights yet…

It’s gonna be sweet. Everyone is going. The chaperones are monkeys, so it’s gonna be really cool.



Chris G. will you go with me to Alpaca Nights?

    k, i cant figger it out. what’s “hoovertext?”
    alls i see is a caption above or below the picture. is there some text INSIDE the picture i cant find??

  6. Your Mom goes to college!

  7. linguafranka, hovertext is my personal favorite bit of CO posts- to see it, put your mouse cursor over the image (without clicking). Keep it still for about a second and the text will pop up!

  8. berthaservant says:

    Another recreation of yours truly feebly asking out a woman; this reminds me of junior high. Or was it last week?

  9. linguafranka says:

    OMG a whole new world of qte has been opened up to me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Threadjack and repeat post: Sorry.

    If you would like to adopt a baby kitten (approximately 5 weeks old, eating solid food– we think):

    My husband found a wee baby kitten, dirty, skin and bone, crying like the dickens out in the rain while walking the dog last night. We can’t take him in permanently, because we’d be in violation of our lease, as we already share a rented house with 2 rescued kitties and 1 dog. If you’re within 250 miles of Lake Cumberland (Kentucky), we’ll bring Isaac Mewton (as he’s been named by my husband) to you, as long as you can prove to us 1) you’re allowed to have him, meaning, if you rent, prove to us your Landlord allows kitties, or prove to us you own your property.

    2) Show us you will keep him INDOORS if you live in a city or near a road!

    You can email me at larcombj@yahoo.com if you’re interested, and we can send you pictures.

    We’re taking him to be tested for feline leukemia/FIV and other such things this afternoon. (He’s currently in quarantine from our other cats).

    Sorry to post this here, with such desperation. We live in the country, and see far too many dead kitties on our roads!


  12. I just love them, sooo cute!

  13. Gail (the first one) says:

    @Merv: Good luck with your babeh and thank you for taking him in!!! I’d love to come and snatch him up, but with 7(!) already, I’m trying to “just say no”.

    Love, love, love the alpacas. Linda looks like she’ll say ‘yes’ when she takes her iPod off!

  14. Alpaca ‘tocks is what I needed this morning. Thank you.

  15. Linda (with iPod on, natch) says:

    As a Linda who CONSTANTLY listens to her iPod at work… Hovertext = Brilliant!

  16. Oh Berthaservant, any girl in her right mind would LOVE to go to Alpaca Nights with you.

  17. ThreeCatNight says:

    “Oh, sorry. From the back I thought you were someone else. Diet’s working out well, though. Er – uh, I’ll leave now.”

  18. Talk to the butt.

  19. Merv — have you set up an account on PetFinder?

    Well-known, well-regarded national pet adoption site.

  20. @Merv: take a look at this page: http://www.kittysites.com/rescue_ky.shtml. Four possibilities of rescue or shelter for your kitten. Thanks for taking him in! Good luck finding him a permanent home.

  21. warrior rabbit says:

    You might also try posting this at ICHC.

  22. Oh, good luck Merv. You have a sweet soul.

    The alpacas- dense furry-fuzzy,those ‘tocks are toxic!

  23. Chris Gaughan says:

    hey! i’m a Chris G too!

  24. Ellie in Flint says:

    I love the caption — too cute!

  25. Awww! I’ll go to Alpaca Nights with you, sweetiepants!

  26. @Merv: take a look at this page: http://www.kittysites.com/rescue_ky.shtml. Four possibilities of rescue or shelter for your kitten. Thanks for taking him in! Good luck finding him a permanent home.

  27. Merv, I post also at a pet rescue board that does a bazillion cat/dog rescues a year… they do transports and everything.

    I’ve posted your post there – hopefully someone there can help you.

  28. Mary (the first) says:

    I am sadly much too far away from Kentucky to take the kitten, thanks for taking care of him, Merv! Surely someone on one of the petfinder sites will take him.
    As for the alpacatocks, I love that her name is Linda and I am picturing the other one is named “Steve”. I don’t know why.

  29. Mary (the first) says:

    well pooh, now I see that Steve is mentioned in the post so I probably subconsciously had that in mind.

  30. Talking to the tocks.

  31. biscuithead says:

    Tock talk?

  32. Von Zeppelin says:

    @linguafranca–“k, i cant figger it out. what’s “hoovertext?”

    Hoovertext: When you move your cursor over a picture of the 31st President of the United States, a little box opens up that says “Prosperity is just around the corner.”

  33. OMG the fluffiness!!! I loff the tailio, almost totally obscured by ‘tock fluffage…

    Plus the mouf open + ears back combinaysh! *is ded!*

  34. @von Zeppelin– HAW!

    [Meh, hoovertext sucks… – Ed.]

  35. Awh, I want a date to Alpaca Nights. I haven’t had a date in 2 years and I’m starting to get all emo about it.

  36. mervtheflamingo says:

    Hey everyone, thanks for the suggestions. We’ve avoided our local shelter for Isaac Mewton, because of the number of cats in our area that become roadkill. For some reason, almost everyone in our small town believes that animals belong (solely) outdoors. Too many dogs on chains. Too many dead kitties on the road. So, we’re being biased and appealing to a crowd that we think will be less likely to leave him out this freezing winter. (Cuteoverloaders.) But if all else fails, we’re hauling him to a no-kill shelter in our home town.

  37. Juniper Jupiter says:

    OMG!!! They’re so floofy they look like bristle brushes from the car warsh!

  38. *through mouthfull of grass* * nods head to music*
    Maybe later.

  39. Walking in to my favorite printing shop, minding my own business and *BAM* there is a tiny, black kitten being snuggled in someone’s hoodie.
    I came face-to face with a frisky, straight tailed charmer. I got to hold it and everything. It was in transit to its new companion animal.

    It was so fun. I’ll remember if for quite a while! Ahhhhh, kittehs.

  40. OMG, teenager alpacas. TEENPACAS!!
    haha hovertext.
