Jake and Bathsheba

A blog by two cats who used to live in the same house in Northern Virginia. Unfortunately, they are both no longer with us.

Saturday, February 03, 2007


With Valentine's Day coming up, do any of you cats have any advice for me? At 15, I'm a bit too old for a lot of the hot Big Man Cats even though I participate in harems (like Chase's Charmers). I don't want anybody to accuse me of "robbing the cradle," whatever that expression means, but I wouldn't mind having a special Valentine.

With this post, I've just been switched over to New Blogger. I've looked back at my posts and now many of my comments have turned anonymous. I heard that this happened to other cats out there (Rosie and Cheeto?), but I'm not sure how it was resolved. Can anyone help? I checked Skeezix's help blog, but the answer didn't seem to apply. PLEASE SIGN YOUR COMMENTS FOR THE TIME BEING.

Also, for some reason, my "add image" button is not working so I have to cut the part of this post that I planned to have next to a photograph. Rats!


Technical difficulties aside, would any of you attractive single lady cats like to be the Valentine of this 12-year-old Tabby?

Can anybody see our blog title? It's cut off at the top by our tool bar or whatever that's called. Mom is getting tired, frustrated, and cranky. She needs chocolate the way we need Temptations.

Hi, Bathsheba, Grr, Midnight, and Cocoa mentioned to me that youz were looking for an older male kitty. Well My name is taps, and I'm 16. I likes to lounge around our house, and watch birdies, lizzies, and take naps on our porchy. So if youz wants come and visit our bloggie.

Hello Bathsheba. I heard that you might still be looking for a valentine? I'm probably too late, but I would really love to be your valentine. I'm a bit younger, but I'm very mature. I like to go outside and hunt for mice, rats and birds. I'm a fierce fighting cat and protect my loved ones with my life. But I'm also very loving and shuggly. So, if ou are not taken yet, please let me know whether you are interested.

Looks great to me, guys!

Also, Bathsheba...You know I think those TOES are hot, you should flex them! We will all come running!

Bathsheba, if you haven't selected a man-cat to be your Valentine, Gizzy is mighty interested!

Oh Bathsheba I'm not at all disgusted by squirrel hunting and eating. As a matter of fact, I'm very impressed. To show you that I'm a true hunter and will be able to provide for you, here is a picture of me and one of my victims.

Oh, we appreciate the Valentine offers and will be following up!

We still can't post photos for some reason, and Mom won't let us make a new post until we can. We had a nice one ready for Man Cat Monday and a good one for "Tails for Tuesday" all for naught. We're very close to our 100th post and we have some good prizes for that, but it will have to wait for now.

Way to put yourself out there, Jake! You're never too old to get back into the saddle.

If yous don't find a valentine date, you can always keep Katie (my little sister) company. She's too young for dating but she's a lot of fun ..err.. fun to make fun OF, i mean!
