About Me

Active within 1522 Days

Hi! My name is Icarus

I am Domestic Shorthair from Reno, NV

Nicknames: Gangsta and SmartBoy

Age: 15 years old

Gender: M

Coat: short haired

Education: Hell yes. He's smart, has never bitten or scratched me or anyone, purrs a lot and very loudly, comes to greet me at the door when I come home from work, loves to play 'fetch' and even eerily brings toys like dragging his fish pole toy down the hallway for me as a 'broad hint' as to what he wants to play with.

My favorite tricks and treats are: I don't know if playing fetch counts as a trick. He plays fetch with a few of his toys. But honestly, how many of us think cat tricks are that cute? The reason I love cats is because they're so unlike dogs haha. and Icarus isn't really into snacks but he loves a little cheese now and then, and yogurt.

Where I hang out: My bed. Only on the left side on his blanket. He'll wait sitting on the floor until that blanket is placed on the bed.

My favorite grubs: Fancy Feast beef. He loves beef...not fond of fish or chicken as much as he loves his grilled beef with gravy.

My pet peeves: Like most cats,when I don't pay attention when he wants me to, he starts getting annoyed.

What I love about my owners: Yes cats do own us, don't they? Of course. My favorite thing about Icarus? He has always been so affectionate.

My cat hobbies: Purr. Sleep on his special Ralph Lauren wool blanket on the bed.

Pet motto: "I purr, therefore I am"

How We Met

My mom and dad have these neighbors who never got their cats fixed. Icarus had a brother too, Spartacus ( who passed away in 2009) and they were the sons of my mom's cat that SHE TOO got from the neighbors. She fixed four of their cats and finally these people get the hint that maybe they aren't responsible enough to have cats. Icarus and Spartacus were just too cute to resist back in 2001 when I got them as six-month old kittens, and I had just lost my beloved cat Daisy.

Members with sufficient reward points have until Jan. 10, 2014, to redeem their points for any of the cat products currently available in the Club Cat Rewards Catalog. On Jan. 15, 2014, Club Cat members with 25 reward points or higher will be automatically entered into a raffle to win special prizes. Raffle prize winners will be notified after Jan. 31, 2014. Points for the final Cat of the Day will be awarded on Jan. 1, 2014. New programs similar to Cat of the Day will be announced with the launch of the new website, so look for further announcements.

Won't be very long

Hi there everyone...been busy and didn't even have time to come here til now :). Thanks for the vote and everything. Right now it's a perfect autumn night with the wind blowing, some rain, cold weather, the perfect 'night' to be snuggling up with my kitty and a cup of hot apple cider.

Hello & Welcome to CC!
My name is Zaboomafoo & I send warm meows of welcome to you! It’s very nice meeting you & we hope you’ll enjoy your time here & will make lots of new furfuriends along the way. If you go to the home page you’ll find all kinds of fun things to do as well as loads of information by hitting the various links or tabs on the page. The University gives you the opportunity to test your feline knowledge & earn a badge for each session that you complete plus there are games & contests under other tabs too.
Do you know how to navigate easily to the pages you want or see mentioned in blogs? Look at the address bar (URL) in your browser. The numbers on the end are your page number. Each page has a different number so all you need to do is erase your 6 digit number, type in the page you want to visit, and then press enter. Wahlah…you should be on the page that you typed in. This makes it much easier to vote for other cats that are running for specific badges throughout the month & will also let you connect with other kitties that are visiting that cat. Another way is by using links. The links are always in blue so to answer someone that blogged to you (or you’ve found an interesting sounding cat you’d like to visit), all you need to do is click on their link to take you to their page. I know it sounds slightly confusing at first but once you get the hang of it you’ll have loads of fun interacting with others in the community.

The CC community is comprised of thousands of pages. Here are some special pages that are frequented by our feline friends:
*Mouse Hockey League (see Dean page #36497 for details)
*Rainbow Bridge Scoop newspaper #63509 (Angel Duckie, Editor, #51627) for kitties who have crossed over.
*CMR Catpaign and Mews Room page #46883 where kitties post their news and the cat of the day campaigns are announced,
*Birthday Central #73341 where you can register your birthday & adoptiversary or see who’s having one.
*Community Directory on page #112364

It’s always great if you can go by & congratulate the daily COTD (cat of the day) winners & vote for the COTM (cat of the month) nominee that’s currently running. This month the nominee is STEVE #206575 so please try to go & meet him & paw him a vote as often as you can. This lets everyone know there’s a new cat in “town” & also let’s you get to know some of the others that romp through each day. CC is a fun place & we hope you enjoy your time here with us.

This is the Zaboo & NICE crew for the CMR welcome committee pawing you a welcome vote & a basket filled with treats, toys & cans of tuna on behalf of our entire family & the CMR crew.

Come visit me, Q Trixie, Piggy & Sneakers, Monkey, Fluffinella ♥Joey, ♥Angel Sherman♥ 9/30/2006-4/19/2008, ♥Angel K Zaboo♥ 6/10/2000-11/25/2013, ♥Angel Cloudy♥ 4/16/2008-2/10/2010, Gray Cloud~Thank you for COTD 1/5/2017~ & ♥ Angel Patches ♥ 4/1/2001~6/24/2016.

Honoring all who served -Vets/active duty military
A Long and Gracious Fall by David Budbill

A long and gracious fall this year.
The leaves are down. Gardens: emptied,
manured, tilled, smooth, and waiting.
Mower and tiller serviced and put away.

Smoker put away, as is the summer table.
Prayer flags, windsocks and their poles: down.
Twenty-foot homemade badminton poles,
peace flag at the top of one, store-bought net—all down and put away for another year.
No more outdoor summer chores.

Fall planting — peonies and tiger lilies — done.
Summer flower stalks removed, beds mulched,
a blanket for the cold. Fall pruning done.

Woodshed roof hammered down and sealed again.
Cellar closed. Drive staked and flagged so the
snowplow knows where to go.

What else is there to do? Finally, for once, we are ready for the snow.
Ready now to come inside. Time now for
words and music, poems and shakuhachi.
Time now to light some incense,
sit and stare at candlelight.
