That's Buzz on the left and Neil on the right (yeah, I'm also a spaceflight geek).

Didn't know about that breed, Ra.

Cool looking cats, those two.

They're not of any particular breed; their littermate was a dark grey tabby (I wish I kept that one, too.....but he has a very good home).

Buzz (the one on the left) seems to like Radio Havana's music selections. She also pays close attention to my R-75 when I'm running through the freqs (It makes those weird noises that seem to attract a cat's attention.

FYI, it's not a good idea to have the cats around when one works on their gear.......what we call critical and essential parts, they call cat toys....LOL. That and I really don't want my cats contacting anything around the finals of my TS-830S.....that would be tragic.

I agree with that. It is okay to have them hanging around when operating or cruising the bands, but if you are working on stuff, it's a good idea to try (try, being the operative word) and keep the puddies away from the shack or workbench.

I also am into model rocketry......and I have a cat that has developed a taste for balsa rocket fins.......to the point where I've had to do some repairs.

Speaking of cats and rockets, DO NOT have a cat in your lap when launching rockets. A friend of mine did that and got badly scratched!

I am having a hard time imagining how anyone would have a cat in their lap while launching a rocket in the first place! Whenever I launched a rocket, when I was a kid, it was out in a field somewhere.

We were about 10 years old at the time. The field was right behind our houses at Pease AFB.

Failed experiment!
