Spudder the Idaho Barn Cat November 16, 2006

Posted by Retired Geezer in AA - Uncategorized.

She’s kind of camera-shy.

Bonus points for identifying the 3 items in the picture.


1. Sobek - November 16, 2006

Red things look like hay-bailing hooks. I also see what looks like a satanic sacrificial knife. The third thing is a cat.

Bonus points for identifying the 3 items in the picture.

1. Cat

2. Boards

3. Tarp

Woo hoo! What did I win?

3. harrison - November 16, 2006

Straw, cat, lumber?

4. compos mentis - November 16, 2006

Black handled jobbie is a skinning knife. Little big for a cat though. The red handled things are what Sobek said. And a wooden pallet.

Also, you might want to check your farm/ranch for radiation because that cat looks freakishly deformed. Is that a head?

5. sandy burger - November 16, 2006

I recognized the orange thingies, which, as a city slicker, I’m quite proud of myself for.

6. Lipstick - November 16, 2006

Is the hooked thing on the left a tool to cut the twine off the bale?

And back in my day, you picked the bale up with your hands, like a man…

7. spongeworthy - November 16, 2006

Yep, them are hay hooks and a twine cutter and a cat.

8. Retired Geezer - November 16, 2006

lol all you guys.
Yep, the pointy things are Hay Hooks but nobody recognized the Bot Knife.

Bots are nasty.

Oh, that’s the cat’s paw getting ready to pounce on a mouse.

9. Sobek - November 16, 2006

I’ve used hay hooks before. Just because I’m a city slicker, with a college education, who didn’t grow up anywhere near any farms, or the tobacco-swilling, inbred hicks who have fewer teeth than I have fingers, who drive their nancy-boy tractors and wear their nancy-boy overalls, and are a step above those bottom-dwelling spudders at best, and who I hate so much I wouldn’t even piss on them if they were on fire, and … dude, I totally forgot where I was going with this.

10. Lipstick - November 16, 2006

A bot knife. Wow, I could have used one of those back in my horse-owning days. I feel like an inbred hick.

11. lauraw - November 16, 2006

On this crappy little work monitor I can’t tell what part of a cat I’m looking at.

12. Dave in Texas - November 16, 2006

That’s the cat’s posterior.


13. Michael - November 16, 2006


1. Move to bitter cold region inhabited by inbred spudders.

2. Own horses, groom them for botfly eggs, assist with delivery of foals.

3. Muck around in the mud to fix sprinkler systems owned by idiots.

4. Bond with a frickin’ wild cat.

5. Whack my wife occasionally and post pictures of the bruise.

6. Go to Camp Geezer with my grandkids.

14. Wickedpinto - November 16, 2006


The Coolest Theme, but the worst executed webtest I’ve come across.

15. Wickedpinto - November 16, 2006

That is a BEAUTIFULY coated cat.

I would say NOT ferral, but rather, an abandoned housecat.

16. skinbad the urbanite - November 16, 2006

I thought the curved thing was some sort of hoof knife. I’m ashamed and will have to change my handle accordingly.

It kind of looks like R.G. brought his cat fixin’ tools and had to set them down to coax little spudder out.

17. Michael - November 16, 2006

In case you haven’t noticed, WordPress is doing server maintenance and it’s causing us to post duplicate comments and so forth. Sorry for the inconvenience. It should be over soon.

18. Wickedpinto - November 16, 2006

I noticed, michael, what about ace though?

Anyone else having a problem there?

Or was I banned for bashing allah’s crush?

19. Beth - November 16, 2006

Shit, Michael took my answer.

And yeah, wtf is up at Ace’s? I don’t know what to do now!

WP, to hell with KP. She’s f’n Yoko Ono.

20. Beth - November 16, 2006

The Coolest Theme, but the worst executed webtest I’ve come across.

Hey, I liked it. I’m Stan:
You’re pretty normal. In fact you’re usually the sane voice of reason when everyone else is going crazy.


21. lauraw - November 16, 2006

I’m noticing that on the old version of Internet Explorer (we had updated but then uninstalled because there was something wonky with the fonts), I can’t open Ace’s site.

If I update again I’m sure it will load fine. Hope they fixed whatever is wrong with the typeface. Its slightly blurry and annoying.

22. Beth - November 16, 2006

Laura, I’m thinking the site’s down, ’cause I’m using Firefox and can’t get to it.

23. Beth - November 16, 2006

OT: Geezer, look!


How cool is Idaho?!

24. Wickedpinto - November 16, 2006

I used both beth, yeah.

And I was Kyle.

Smart and thoughtful, thats right.

WICKED! is smart and thoughtful.

I rock.

25. Wickedpinto - November 16, 2006

I still think that that is a housecat who has been abandoned, not a feral cat.

All cats have the carnivore hunter in them, but the coloring is CLEARLY bread.

If you are a cat guy geezer? let it into the house, it will be a loving pet.

26. Wickedpinto - November 16, 2006

I think Ace is being targeted by the “pro democratic” KosKids/DUers.

they are “layering” our access to ace.

27. Beth - November 16, 2006
28. Wickedpinto - November 16, 2006

I’m kinda pissed about that, Jdub, myself, purple and I forget who right now, were all talking about space ordinance.

What a CONTROVERSIAL partisan subject.

I so hate the left, they are such twats.

(lady’s? I’m a guy, so offense on manliness tends to be a malifaction of language, using primarily feminine genitalia. . . . .any way you can throw us a good single world, single or dual syllable word that could replace “pussy” or “twat?”)

29. Wickedpinto - November 16, 2006

Beth Spurwing has been tickling for the last 2 weeks. He had NUMEROUS comments at aces last week.

I think whoever spurwing is easing themselves back in, without become the celebrity he is, focusing only on the points they are trying to make.

30. Wickedpinto - November 16, 2006


31. Wickedpinto - November 16, 2006

On my way hear found this post that little mofaku looks like it’s got good pointability.

32. Beth - November 16, 2006

I don’t object to calling someone a twat any more than I object to calling someone a dick. Why people get their panties in a wad about stuff like that I’ll never know.
(zOMG, I said “panties!” I’m a self-hating female!) 🙄

33. Retired Geezer - November 16, 2006

*just catching up here:*
lol Michael but you left off shoot Bambi’s mom and go fishin’

How cool is Idaho
Thanks Beth, I even posted it on my *own* moronblog.
By posting I mean that I copied large portions of text and didn’t add any commentary.
Yep, Idaho’s cool.

WP, I’m an animal guy but one of my goals is to eliminate the ‘cat door’ and ‘cat box’ after our 21 year-old cat goes to the big sandbox in the sky. Spudder has already made her appearance inside, causing great unhappiness among the 2 dogs and cat. She entered through the cat door like she owned the place. Now I have to keep it shut because I don’t want to wake up to a Rodeo at 3am.
“Spudder, you’re not an indoor cat, you’re a Barn Cat”.
I refer to her as Feral because no one could get close to her for 10 months… except me.
I want to get her spayed because she now has ‘suitors’ hanging around.

34. Wickedpinto - November 16, 2006

Why court a cat if you ain’t gonna marry her Geezer?

Thats cruel, ESPECIALLY since your “feral” cat, is a house cat who has been abandoned.

I would let that F’er die, but if you chose to care for it, you should care for it.

to half ass it is inhuman, not inhumane, but inhuman. You have pets, and you have made “spudder” a pet, suck it up.

35. Wickedpinto - November 16, 2006

Beth? Don’t worry about mentioning panties.

In fact, please. . . .carry on. 🙂

36. Tushar D - November 16, 2006

What the F happened to mu.nu? I need my blog fix.

37. Retired Geezer - November 16, 2006

Oh I plan on caring for her. I spent 2 hours building her a comfortable house, I feed her daily, I made her a watering bowl that will resist freezing, I’ll get her shots and I’ll protect her.
I just don’t want her (or the horses) in the house.
She’s lived outdoors on her own for almost a year so how is that cruel?

RG knows a thing or two about cathouses.

39. Lipstick - November 16, 2006

Ahhh, what a nice little house you made! Is that a blanket inside?

40. onehorsephoto - November 16, 2006

1 wooden pallet
2 plastic tarp
3 Spudder the Idaho Barn Cat

What’d I win?

41. onehorsephoto - November 16, 2006

onehorsephoto= Barry

42. onehorsephoto - November 16, 2006

AOS is back on

43. Sobek - November 17, 2006

And there was much rejoicing.

44. Retired Geezer - November 17, 2006

Ahhh, what a nice little house you made! Is that a blanket inside?

Actually it’s a t-shirt that I wore for 2 days. It was early in our *relationship* and I wanted her to get used to my scent.

Barry, I hope you noted that the Tarp in question is Not Blue.
Blue is the official color of low-rent spudders. We graduated to Gray Tarp status.

45. kevlarchick - November 17, 2006

Geezer that little kitty has it made. That’s a damn fine house for her. You gave her the shirt off your back!!

46. skinbad - November 17, 2006

The hinged roof is so he can gather the eggs.

47. Retired Geezer - November 17, 2006

Spudder has a Magical Cousin.

SFW like everything I post without a warning.

48. lauraw - November 17, 2006

skinbad, I’m dying! ROFL

49. Dave in Texas - November 17, 2006

I wanted her to get used to my scent

Were you wearing Sex Panther by Odeon?

They’ve done studies you know. 60% of the time it works every time.

50. Muslihoon - November 17, 2006

Something for my Catholic friends: “at the cost of immediate clarity” (the first two paragraphs are particularly amusing).
