Off Topic: Roofus the Cat

Summer isn't the time to find Roofus the Cat up on his roof. Between the rain and then hot weather, Roofus tends to seek out shade (or dry) this time of year. Other than one sighting a week or so ago when I didn't have my memory card in the camera, I haven't seen Roofus.

But, I have spies. Local Plainfield blogger Bernice peeked into the "abandoned" ex-Budget Rental Car building and there's Roofus! He's hanging out with the big grey cat who's hiding in back of him in this shot.

Somehow they can get in and out of the building and the last time I peeked in closely, there was a fresh litter pan, food, and water. Although the place is definitely abandoned, cat food keeps mysteriously appearing.

I return you to your regularly scheduled blog now. And thanks go out to Bernice!

whew! Im so glad...I worry about the heat as much as the cold for animals.

Wish someone out there was watching Jillian the Bachelorette with me.....sigh....no spoilers for this west coast...

Jackie, Wow! a closeup of Roofus is a treat. Thanks for getting us that shot from Bernice. Does she know how many fans Roofus has here? Does she also know we get a bit fanatical when he hasn't been spotted for awhile? He's still looking healthy. The pix always make me smile.

Terry, sorry I'm not watching this season or I'd fill you in. I think Jason may have turned me off permanently. (From that show only.)

Forgot to thank you for supplying the pic of Roofus, Jackie.

Jackie said...

Yes, she knows ... she emailed me the picture. I've gotten her addicted to looking for Roofus whenever she's near the train station. She knows I haven't spotted him lately. And she's like me -- always has a camera with her!

Roofus is such a handsome kitty, bless whoever feeds the poor lost souls...Thank you, Bernice for the pic of "our" kitty.

Terry, I watch Jillian, but find it hard to blog and watch. I want Wes to GOOOOOOoooooooooo! OH she is going to grill WES!!! All right!

Lucky for us.....TWO photographers on the lookout for a Roofus sighting! Fantastic!

I am so happy to see a photo of Roofus...he looks smaller than I thought. LOL

Glad to see Roofus is okay. He looks a lot like my feral kitty "Tommy." Still can't catch Tommy to get him, or his sister & mom, neutered. He's starting to come up closer & trust me a little. He loves my cat Casper and my pekingese!

Thanks to Bernice for the photo! And thanks to whoever is taking care of the kitties! There are still a few good souls left!

Sydney said...

WOW JACKIE --I think that's the closest I've ever seen Roofie... I can see whiskers and all! Thank you for posting it! And to your friend too.

Sydney said...

I tivo'd the bachelorette and occasionally watch and fast forward. Delee, I am with you, get Wes out. I haven't seen last night's ep yet, so maybe she did. I am going for What's his name.. kitson?
How about you all?

Petals said...

I sure missed Rufus. Glad to see he's ok.

meb said...

OK Roofus! He does look smaller in this pix, but it may be because he's not all curled up in a ball.

So glad someone is feeding them. I was surprised that you said there was a litter pan Jackie... I would assume they just go outside since they are feral.

I'm watching the Bachelorette Terry... I just haven't watched this one yet. I cannot stand Wes and I hope he goes. I don't think it did any good for Jake to come back and tell her all that stuff about Wes... it didn't work. I think she really likes him, so to me she isn't very good at picking a soulmate. I like Kip (is that his name?).

Thanks and a shout out to Bernice for sharing the Roofus pix! We were missing him.

I watched the Bachelorette last night. I'm with all of you. Wes has got to go!! I like him less and less every week. I keep wishing Jillian could see him like we do. Since it sounds like not everyone has seen this episode yet, I won't spoil it.

I'll just say it's a good one. : )

Yay! some Jillina watchers with me. I really aplaud her non-sleep over for the guys...she didnt want to confuse herself love/lust...Im proud of her.
I adore Kyptin, and his family seems great as well. They seem to have somuch chemistry between them.
But I am a tad tired of her squealing each time she see's one of the guys.
Thank goodness Wes is gone..I dont think his career got any boosts..no one likes a bad boy braggart.

I know we spoke of this before, but I sure wish we knew who was furnishing the foor for Rufus and buddies. I would be willing to chip in on the cost while I can still afford it.
