My Cat Profile

Domestic Shorthair from The Island of Ireland, Europe.

Dinny - In Ireland with Millie & Rihanna

About Me

Active within 380 Days

Hi! My name is Dinny - In Ireland with Millie & Rihanna

I am Domestic Shorthair from The Island of Ireland, Europe.

Nicknames: Dinnydums

Age: 6 years old

Gender: M

Coat: short haired

Education: He settled into my house within 10 minutes. He is a lovely cat. Just purrfect. When he goes outside to play he always comes back within a few hours and just walks back in the door and chirps at me. He is very obedient and loving.

My favorite tricks and treats are: Chasing balls at the speed of lightning. Gives massages and kneads me with his paws. and Fish / Ham / Bacon Bits

Where I hang out: In the spare room, sometimes hiding behind the door in the spare bedroom.

My favorite grubs: Purina dry food and also Felix Wet Food

My pet peeves: When he wants to play with his sister Millie and she is not in the mood for playing. When he comes back indoors to eat as he is starving after being out exploring all day, and then I shut the door and keep him in over night. He hates that. He falls for the same trick every day.

What I love about my owners: Feeds me, changes my litter tray, and plays with me. Gave me a warm loving home and reunited me with my sister and littermate Millie, who is just adorable.

My cat hobbies: Chase Millie and eat. Millie is in the photo below.

Pet motto: Sleep, sleep, play, play, hunt, eat, chase!

How We Met

My dog Siog died on 25th January this year and my sister gave me a female cat called Millie to help me grieve, as I was devastated and "petless". Two weeks later her littermate, Dinny arrived at my house looking for a home. There were only the two in the litter. Dinny is crazy about his sister Millie but she's not so hot on him.

Happy St Patrick's Day! A Frosty +7 here!
Good morning friends. Thought we would try to make a round again on CC both of kitties we regularly visit and those new friends and some we don't know yet. Got to make this a c/p. We are still waiting to see if Zeus will have found his forever home. Spring has come and their are all lot more kitties on the streets that need rescue. no-kill rescues fill fast. Kill shelters are not a good option for us kitties anyway. That is why mom keeps doing what she does.

We are all well and healthy. The dogs have their physicals coming up April first--- April Fools dogs! When mom comes to pick you up from the vet, after staying there for Easter, they are not done with you! Shots coming up too, he-he. Think Handy Andy has a rabies shot due the end of April, but the rest of us are later in the summer.

The weather is still ice and snow here, with more snow coming this week--- will it never end? Sorry Barney still hasn't done any more stories, but promise we will work on that. Still have to get more pictures posted of our past kitties on the Inspiration page. Will try to label those too. Mom still has to do taxes and we hope that means a refund coming back-- we hope!

Now we are on our way to Pawty with Pushkin and all the other Irish kitties and then on to MHL mouse hockey tonight.

Come visit me, Our Precious Angels #75646 COTD 12/3/13? WOW!, HEFTY #130639-----VFP Goalie/COTD WOW!, Honey #267035 COTD 1/25/14 THANK YOU ALL!, Handy Andy #149735 WOW COTD!

~Trixie's Tantalizing Animal Tales~ March 17th
Top O the morning & Happy St. Patrick’s Day!! I thank all of my bonny furiends for filling my pantry with goodies for my adoptiversary day yesterday & also for the purrs of love & vote support! Being furiends with all of you is better than finding that elusive pot of gold at the end of the rainbow & a whole lot easier than catching a leprechaun…MOL! Well, tis the wearing of the green day kitties! The phrase "the wearing of the green", means to wear a shamrock on one's clothing & is derived from an Irish street song lamenting the repression of supporters of the Irish Rebellion of 1798 with the same name. Saint Patrick is said to have used the shamrock, a three-leaved plant, to explain the Holy Trinity to pagans in the land. Betcha didn’t think I knew those little tidbits did you? I’m a kitty that’s full of surprises, plus my sweet mom is from Irish heritage so she helped…MOL!! Today I’m inviting you to rest your weary paws after a full day of walking around at the zoo yesterday. My sis Patches has whipped up some green tea, shamrock catnip cookies & a big pot of Irish stew for anyone that gets hungry today so help yourself & take it easy as I meow to you about one of the Brookfield Zoo’s most famous inhabitants.
~GORILLA SAVES TODDLER~BINTI JUA (whose name means "Daughter of Sunshine" in Swahili) is the niece of Koko, the gorilla world famous for learning American Sign Language. Her mother, Lulu, was originally from the Bronx Zoo and died on January 24, 2011 after residing at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium. Her father is Sunshine (from the San Francisco Zoo). Binta Jue is a female Western Lowland Gorilla that lives at the Brookfield Zoo & received international attention when she saved the life of a small child. On August 16, 1996, a three-year-old boy fell 18 feet into the gorilla enclosure at the Brookfield Zoo in Chicago. The child was lying unconscious when Binti Jua picked him up and protectively cradled him into her arms. The heroic gorilla gently carried the child to the zookeeper's door, where he could be rescued. Binti Jua had her 17-month-old baby, Koola, clutched to her back throughout the incident. The boy spent four days in the hospital and recovered fully. Binti Jua displayed an incredible act of animal altruism when she saved the life of this small child & has touched the hearts of people all over the world. This animal hero story is truly inspiring and Binti Jua is one of the most famous animal heroes ever known & even has her own Wikipedia page!
I’ll be wrapping up the hero series of my campaign tomorrow before I move on to some other interesting animal tales. I’m sending a little pot of gold nuggets (catnip candy wrapped in gold foil) home with each of you for being such sweet & loving furiends & to thank you for your sweet blogs & your votes of support this month! Have a blessed St. Patrick’s Day!

Purrs & hugs,
Trixie

It's a wonderful life
Philip Van Doren Stern (1900-1984) began a short story, The Greatest Gift", in 1939. He was inspired by a dream, and reminiscent of the 1843 Charles Dickens' Christmas Carol. Stern shared 200 printed copies in 1943 with friends as a year-end cards after numerous publisher rejections.
Luckily, the pamphlet came to the attention of a RKO movie producer who purchased the rights. Frank Capra's production company saw the movie potential. He paid $10,000 for the rights in 1945. Stern's story was adapted into the most loved and memorable American family film, "It's a Wonderful Life" in 1946. Director Capra's inventiveness, humor and affection for human beings keep it glowing with life and excitement.
On Xmas eve, George Bailey's guardian angel shows him all the lives he touched and how different life in his community would be had he never been born. Although George repeatedly sacrifices his dream to travel the world, he realizes "No man is a failure who has friends."
My dear friends at CatChannel, each one of you is precious, charming and kind. We make every attempt to make all members feel welcomed. You have the generous spirit of George Bailey in your hearts. You make our community a wonderful place. Thank you for being our friends.

See the video and sing along to these lyrics
The lead video of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is riveting. The song, released in 1970, remains current.

"Immigrant Song" by Led Zeppelin
Ah, ah,
We come from the land of the ice and snow,
From the midnight sun where the hot springs flow.
The hammer of the gods will drive our ships to new lands,
To fight the horde, singing and crying:
Valhalla, I am coming!

On we sweep with threshing oar,
Our only goal will be the western shore.

Ah, ah,
We come from the land of the ice and snow,
From the midnight sun where the hot springs blow.
How soft your fields so green, can whisper tales of gore,
Of how we calmed the tides of war. We are your overlords.

On we sweep with threshing oar,
Our only goal will be the western shore.

So now you'd better stop and rebuild all your ruins,
For peace and trust can win the day despite of all your losing.

The art of gratitude with CAT-titude
WHO can I thank today?***HOW will I show my appreciation? (¯`'•. ¸.(¯`v´¯)¸. •'´¯)
"For me, every hour is grace. And I feel gratitude in my heart each time I can meet someone and look at his or her smile." - Elie Wiesel (¯`'•. ¸.(¯`v´¯)¸. •'´¯)
The math behind the "thank you":
Acts of gratitude are highly contagious. On a day you deliver one powerful thank you...
Your gratitude spreads to 6 people you know. (+6)
Then it spreads to 6 people they each know. (+36)
Then it spreads to 6 people they each know. (+216)
6 + 36 + 216 = 258 people who feel more grateful... just from YOUR one thank you! (¯`'•. ¸.(¯`v´¯)¸. •'´¯)
"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity." - Melody Beattie (¯`'•. ¸.(¯`v´¯)¸. •'´¯)

Delightful April sun
(¯`'•. ¸.(¯`v´¯)¸. •'´¯)
"An altered look about the hills;
A Tyrian light the village fills;
A wider sunrise in the dawn;
A deeper twilight on the lawn;
A print of a vermilion foot;

A spider at his trade again;
An added strut in chanticleer;
A flower expected everywhere ..."

Hi DINNY & FAMILY
hope you are enjoying a good christmas. Whay a change form last year. Do you like turkey I love it. Mum was just reading that there is an epidemic of antifreeze poinining among cats in Dub, Cavan & Wexford. Perhaps you family might look it up it on the Irish Times web site (we saw it on their phone site last night). Anway just think it best to spread the word. Im luck as Im an indoor cat cause we live near a main road and anyway birmans are no so interested in the outside ....we are lazy and have no toad sense.
Curl up and enjoy your holidays and make you humans work for you...Im good at that so if you want any tips get back to me. In fact my dog friend next door and I are thinking of writting thw ultimate guide to owner training Spoil Me Or Else.....

Happy Sunday meows from the NICE crew
Good Morning dear CC furiends! I want to start out with a big thank you to Simba & BHG for their “dear once in a while visitors” blog yesterday! We often wonder what’s happened to some of our close furiends when we don’t hear from them too so definitely love the idea of putting an update on the CMR page #46883, even if you don’t have time to visit anyone else. We thank those of you that take the time to post updates from our furry furiends that aren’t able to because of illness, computer issues, etc. The holidays are a very busy time for all of us but it’s also a time to reflect on the wonderful furiendships we’ve made in our lives. We’re thankful to have met each one of you & definitely would appreciate an update from those that have drifted away so we don’t worry.

Reflection
•~-.¸¸,.-~*'¯¨'*•~-.¸¸,.World Philosophy Day.¸¸,.~*'¯¨'*•~-.¸¸,.
Introduced in 2002,Int'l Philosophy Day honors wisdom and celebrates the importance of philosophical reflection. It encourages the world to to share their philosophical heritage with each other, the conceptual bases of principles and values on which world peace depends: democracy, human rights, justice, equality and peaceful coexistence, to open up free & accessible spaces, to continually question well-established truths, to verify hypotheses, to find conclusions, to inspire a public debate between intellectuals and civil society on the challenges confronting our society. For centuries, in every culture, philosophy has given birth to concepts, ideas and analyses, and, through this, has set down the basis for critical, independent and creative thought.

¯¨'*•~-.¸¸,.-~*'¯¨'*•~-.¸¸,. -~*'¯¨'*•~-.¸¸,.-~*'¯¨'*•~-.¸¸,.-~*
"The practice of philosophy is a process benefitting the whole of society. It helps to build bridges between peoples and cultures and heightens demand for quality education for all. Philosophy encourages respect for cultural diversity, exchanging opinions and sharing the benefits of science, which are the conditions for genuine debate. This 17 November, let us rally together to harness the incredibly transformative potential of philosophy."- Irina Bokova, Director-General of UNESCO

November 15: America Recycles Day promotes the social, environmental and economic benefits of recycling & encourages people to create a better natural environment.

WHAT’S IN OUR TRASH......National averages show:
38.1% Paper -12.1% Yard Trimmings -7.8% Metals -5.5% Glass 10.5% Plastic-10.9% Food Waste-9.8%Other-5.3% Wood Waste

<<..•.¸¸•´¯`•.¸¸•Recycling Statistics¸.•´¯`•¸¸.•..>>
The 2009 EPA national recycling figures for 243 million tons of trash generated were:
•82 million tons composted/recycled for 33.8% recovery rate
•29 million tons of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW)combusted for energy recovery
•74% of office-type paper recovered
•60% of yard trimmings recovered
•34.5% of metals recycled
•7 million tons of metals recycled reduced greenhouse gas emissions at equivalent of removing 5 million cars from road for one yr
•Approx 9,000 community curbside recycling programs exist in US, increase over reported 2002 figure of 8,875
•Approx 3,000 community composting programs exist - decrease from 2002 figure of 3,227 programs

<<..•.¸¸•´¯`•.¸¸•Usage•¸¸.•´¯`•¸¸.•..>>
1. Every yr nearly 900,000,000 trees are cut down to provide raw materials for American paper and pulp mills.

2. Every yr US generates around 14 million tons of food waste which is 106 pounds of food waste per person, 570,000 tons of this is composted for a 4.1% recovery rate. The rest, or 13.4 million tons is incinerated or landfilled and occupies 6.3 million cubic yards of landfilled Municipal Solid Waste.

3. US throw away about 28 billion bottles & jars every yr.
4. US make more than 200 million tons of garbage each yr.
5. It takes a 15-yr old tree to produce 700 grocery bags.
6. Disposable diapers last centuries in landfills. An average baby will go through 8,000 diapers.

7. Each yr American throw away 25,000,000,000 Styrofoam cups. Even 500 years from now, the foam coffee cup you used this morning will be sitting in a landfill.

8. Most of the plastic recycled is #1 PETE soda bottles and #2 HDPE milk bottles. Most of the #3 through 7 plastics are not easily recyclable.

9. Corrugated boxes produced in the U.S contain 37% recycled content and by tonnage have a highest average 73% recovery rate or 21.6 million tons.

10. When 62.8% of the 102 billion aluminum cans are recycled, the energy savings can light a city the size of Pittsburgh for ten years.

Hi Dinny,
Happy Mother's Day to your sweet Mom. I left this poem on the Mews Page this morning but wanted to share it again in case you didn't see it. I gave the card that had the poem on it in 2003, my 3rd year with my Mom. A MOTHER'S DAY POEM FROM THE CAT Having fun with yarn and string, Leaving fur on everything, Purring when I get a treat, Always landing on my feet, Posing on a windowsill, Staring like I want to kill, Leaping with both skill and grace, Acting like I own the place, Playing with your rolled-up socks, Visiting the litter box, Seeing who I can ignore, Deciding who's the biggest bore, Taking naps on top of you...These are things I love to do!! HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!! Most of it is like the author knew me personally! Mom and I had a good day with lots of purrs and loving and treats, such a perfect day. My Mom has finally been allowed by the chiropractor to start back slowly to her Curves classes and to walk slowly on her treadmill. She started back to Curves but not the treadmill as yet. I use the treadmill as a perch to watch television from MOL. I am still missing my sweet Maggie so very much and appreciate prayers for us and Mom Pat. Mom and I worry about Mom Pat a lot. Your kind words have really helped me, my friend. I am so happy that my Mom has never really gotten into that ole Facebook!! I hope you all gave your Mom lots and lots of love today. Loving purrs, Wolfie

Hi Dinny,
I asked Mom to go ahead and try to meow for me. Last week was such a roller coaster of a week, one that started on a huge high and ended on the lowest of lows. I am so very happy that my sweet Maggie enjoyed her surprise Birthday Pawty, then on her Birthday she and I ate ourselves silly and played with all her new toys, a marvelous day. On Tuesday she was not feeling so well so we lounged around and snuggled then the next day, what a glorious surprise, I was named the COTD!! I am so happy that my Maggie got to share that with me, she was so happy and proud of me. By the way, thank you for making it happen and for all the goodies you left for me. Then Thursday we got the devastating call from Mom Pat. I immediately went to Maggie's house and stayed with her and Mom Pat, I was not leaving my darling's side during her last hours. It was so hard to put forth a brave front for her. I have been heart broken and crying since. It seems unreal that she is not physically here any more. Though she comes down to visit with her angel dust which enables me to spend time with her over the bridge. It is so wonderful how all our angel friends are there taking such good care of her. Thank you for all your prayers, thoughts and kind words to both me and especially Mom Pat. My Mom would never let me stay out all day or night you are so lucky. I hope you are having a warm, sunny day. Loving purrs, Wolfie
