Hi, everybody! I'm Brainball, aka the Lion King, aka King Leonidas, aka Calamity Jake. I blog with my brother and sisters at The Ballicus Blog. And I'm proud to be a new member of Floof & Fur!
I came to be in my forever home on August 1, 2001, which Mom and Dad celebrate as both my birthday and my Gotcha Day. For a couple of years before, they knew me as the neighbors' beautiful orange cat. Except that those neighbors moved away and abandoned me. Thank goodness there was Mom and Dad to take me in. I am a lucky big floofy boy. I was Mom and Dad's first cat, and I remain the Alpha Cat and Lion King of the Ballicus Household. Three more Ballicai have followed me -- Dorydoo, Marilyn MonREOW, and MaoMao, and we all get along well.
I understand that you're discussing floof removal! That's a subject near and dear to my heart. I'm not especially fond of being brushed, so Mom has to do it during times I don't pay as much attention to the brush. She's found, for example, that she can brush me effectively while I'm eating! And the Zoom Groom is another excellent tool. I don't mind the Zoom Groom so much, so she uses the Zoom Groom for heavy floof removal and then the regular brush to slick everything up.
I'm a big boy -- I weigh sixteen pounds, but I'm not fat, just broad and big-boned. I am such a large kitty that when I had bronchitis last year and had to go to the vet, I had to be put in one of the dog kennels! At least they gave me plenty of space from the woofies, so I didn't mind too much.
I love food -- dry food, wet food of all flavors, Temptations of all flavors. Mom also gives me daily supplements. I get a teaspoon full of baby food squash every day since older, floofy kitties like me often deal with constipation. The baby food squash really helps with that. And as I have seasonal allergies, Mom gives me fish oil regularly which helps keep the allergies under control.
I love to play with my brother, MaoMao, and my sister, Dorydoo. The three of us are all great friends. Wrestling is so much fun, and we love to play Thundering Herd of Elephants! Marilyn likes to keep to herself, though, and we all respect that. Well, except when MaoMao takes it into his young head to chase her! *grin*
Well, that's my introduction, and I want to say again how happy I am to be a member of Floof & Fur.

Hello to all my fellow floof felines. This is Zoey, from Zoolatry and I challenge each and everyone of you to share your best "floof" story. Is it the bignoisysucky monster machine that your human uses to gather up your floof? Or do you travel in your PTU to the salon for floof removal? Where does your floof go? Do you ever have a floof problem? We sometimes leave little bundles of floof all over the house for our human; and we sometimes swallow our floof and leave floofball treats for her to step on. Often our floof ends up all over the human clothing (so they just shouldn't wear clothes, we say) and of course, it's a decorative accent to fine furniture and bedding. Personally, I do not like when the Floof Removal Service comes to our house... the indignity of it all, the humiliation. And notice that the Zoolatry Dad willingly participates in this process. What's your Floof Story?

We are so happy that you are feeling better! We wanted to celebrate your birthday with a few presents from your friends here at Floof and Fur. We got you a gift pail full of Topini Treats. We thought you might like them since your good friend Sweet Praline loves them so much. We heard about your interest in human carrots so we thought you might like some nip carrots of your own. We also got you some new crocheted hacky sacks and a few mice. Enjoy all your treats and enjoy your day! Happy happy birthday!
This morning he was running around the house, jumping on the beds, purring like a wild mancat and looking perfectly fine. The Ved Med School confirmed he has no broken bones, no visible joint deterioration, back problems, or organ problems. So what was wrong with him?????? He was unable to walk for over a week.
I think whatever happened was purged by all the wonderful purrayers and purrs and good wishes and blessings we received from all you gorgeous felines and beans! WE LOVE YOU! xxooo Patty and Bhu
Efurryone please go visit Billie she is not doing well and her mommy is worried. She is having kidney problems, arthritis issues and now a lump on her back. She is not eating very well and is being watched carefully. Her family could really use some purrs.
