A new Roy's tradition

One night after having dinner at Roy's in Hawaii Kai (one of our favorites) we noticed cats hangin around the parking lot at the "Kiss and ride."

You may not see them in this picture but you can probably make out their glowing evil eyes.
Naturally I had an idea. So now everytime we go to Roy's we make a stop at the grocery store.

And give them food. And then they all come out of the woodwork. The cool thing is we saw they had plates of food and water so I'm glad I wasn't the first one to think of feeding these guys.

I have 3 cats - all of them adopted. I love my kids :)
After have seen so many cats on the streets, I started taking cat food with me, in my purse, wherever I go.
Nice job! :)

I officially love you now, Jorge.

I love animals more than I love most of my fellow humans -- so whenever I see kindness being extended toward them, it helps restore my faith in others. Thanks.

Avinash said...

I'm afraid I'm going to have to disagree with your actions, Jorge. Cats are inherently evil.
If you stare at one for more than 4 seconds in the eyes then it will maul you.

the h kai kats! i think they have mini bomber jackets somewhere. ..

thanks for helping keep them alive!

Capcom said...

Gosh, feral island kitties?! God bless you and the others for your sweet generosity with them. :-)

And wow, all those eyes!

Josh Bennett. said...

Quite cool, I must say.

Nice. Anyone who looks out for animals goes several rungs up the evolutionary scale in my books. Cute pictures, too.

Please Type Legibly said...

Oh, quick question, if you don't mind. What is a "Kiss and Ride?"

TakesaVillage said...

You are a one in a million sweetheart.

Maytevk said...

Hola Jorge!!
Eres una gran persona, muchos deberían de aprender de tu acción. En los jardines de mi barrio hay muchos gatos y gente como tu se dedica a alimentarles, detalles tan pequeños hacen que este mundo se convierta en un mundo mejor.
Un abrazo desde España

Do you know the song "Kiss and Ride" by Bratmobile?

The photos in the grocery store were like Steven Wright humor- great great stuff.

maven said...

Jorge, I didn't know you were a cat person! I'm so happy to find out you cared about these cats and went out of your way to feed them. Hopefully, someone is trying to catch them and neuter them, too!

Marga* said...

So you even love cats? Now I love you even more!!! :)

Irishcoda said...

Awwwwww! Bless you for being kind to animals! All of our cats were adopted as adults and I'm aware that there are people who care for feral cat populations. Thanks for feeding the kittycats!

rachie said...

awwww...cute kitties! Thanks for taking the time to feed them, and like you, I'm glad you're not the first to think of it. It's nice to see someone's generosity extend to animals. My two cats are rescues and I definitely am the lucky one for having found them.

Eris said...

That's great Jorge!!! I found some time ago a cute little puppy walking in the street at night. I took it to my house, gave him water, even bought some food for him (that he didn't like by the way) then my friend and I looked up and down for his owner, all over my neighborhood and the puppy went with us, of course. Then another dog came by, and he ran off with him... after 1 1/2 hour walk.. we couldn't find him ever!!! hahaha!

@TedLannister said...

How kind and thoughtful of you Jorge!

dmagro said...

Bananaoracle said...

Wow, that was awfully generous of you. When I see the people in my community just sit and mope while there is so much wrong in the world but then I see people like you make it better and it just warms my heart.

Wow, that sounded gay.

ySBe* said...

ADORO LOSTTTTTTTTTTTT, es lo máximo que han podido crear, quisiera vivir toda mi vida viendo nuevos episodios, ojalá fuera infinita hehehe.

Kisses Jorge!...

Woodeene said...

Awww...too sweet. Taking care of feral kitties is a very good thing.

Hoku said...

Yummy! Roy's I mean!

Thanks for feeding our cats. I have 3 fantastic cats, one found on Sheridan st. when it was a few days old (by sam's club), and 2 from the hawaiian humane society. For those who asked, yes we have trap and spay/neuter/release here on Oahu. The people who feed the feral cats get traps from the humane society and bring the caught kitties there for the operation. Then they are released back where they were trapped. Some people complain about the feedings, but those cats keep our rat and mouse populations under control!

Thanks again Jorge, you just showed again that you have a heart of gold!

The Lee County Clowder said...

We love that you're feeding those stray/feral kitties.

Be careful, though. Soon enough, you're gonna wind up adopting two or three of them. :)

bea said...

me parece fantastico que todavia quede gente que se preocupa por los animales.aqui en españa no es asi,me acaban de llegar noticias de que cierran una perrera...me parece increible....

Big Mama said...

Since I'm a big lady...I have to comment on the Roy's first...

We have one here in Palm Springs.


as for the cats...

I love me some strays. I let a couple neighborhood ones into my house.

Is that weird?

marcia said...

Very sweet of you, but man, cats are creepy...

Captain Mustapha said...

I wonder where they found the cat that appeared in "Enter 77." Maybe these cats are LOST actor cats waiting for the writers' strike to end.

The grocery store photos are the best photos on your site yet. It's like Steven Wright humor.

Mi inglés es pésimo pero entiendo que compraste comida para los gatos abandonados. Una buena acción, eso habla muy bien de ti.

Saludos! ;)

Not only are you one of the best characters on the Best Show Ever, you are also a decent human to boot. I love cats, and I wish more people were as thoughtful about taking care of them. I applaud you, sir!

maria said...

acaso queres ser el hombre más adorable del mundo?? *aunque pensandolo bien, la sensibilidad resulta con las chicas*
Despues de ver este post me doy cuenta q eres mucho pero mucho más "hombre", que cualquier otro que dice serlo, al hacer esto por los animales. Yo personalmente los amo, y te ganaste un pedacito de mi corazón. besos desde argentina!!

CarolinaBensler said...

I don't know in which language I have to speak but I know what to say :).

You have an enormous heart, it's a nice action what you do with these cats. It's really appreciate and lovely because not all the people love and respect animals.

Actions like this show that you're a nice guy ;).

A hug from Spain :).

sunny said...

We used to go chase the feral cats all the time growing up on de island. Maybe this is why cats dont like me.

stupid karma. or should i say kat-ma????? its a conspiracy.

i got nothing. good for you guys..good karma will follow you everywhere. (along with those cats...)

Cecilia Giannetti said...

hi from brazil!

you're so absolutely awesome! we luv you

you're a beautiful man :)

Here in Israel you can't take two steps without bumping into a cat. We don't have squirrels like they do in the US, we have cats. There used to be a rat problem here and during the British Mandate cats were brought over from the UK to deal with it. Now we have a cat problem instead. While it is good-hearted to feed them, it kind of makes the problem bigger, because then there are just more and more poor, starving, suffering, sickly cats. The money spent on feeding them should really be spent on neutering them so the problem doesn't persist.

I heard they're thinking about bringing in owls to solve the cat problem. (Those must be some hungry owls.)

There was this guy who believed very much in true love and decided to take his time to wait for his right girl to appear. He believed that there would definitely be someone special out there for him, but none came.
Every year at Christmas, his ex-girlfriend would return from Vancouver to look him up. He was aware that she still held some hope of re-kindling the past romance with him. He did not wish to mislead her in any way. nike shoxsSo he would always get one of his girl friends to pose as his steady whenever she came back. That went on for several years and each year, the guy would get a different girl to pose as his romantic interest. So whenever the ex-girlfriend came to visit him, she would be led into believing that it was all over between her and the guy. nike womens shoes The girl took all those rather well, often trying to casually tease him about his different girlfriends, or so, as it seemed! In fact, the girl often wept in secret whenever she saw him with another girl, but she was too proud to admit it. Still, every Christmas, she returned, hoping to re-kindle some form of romance. But each time, she returned to Vancouver feeling disappointed.
Finally she decided that she could not play that game any longer. puma mens shoes Therefore, she confronted him and professed that after all those years, he was still the only man that she had ever loved. mens puma shoesAlthough the guy knew of her feelings for him, he was still taken back and have never expected her to react that way. He always thought that she would slowly forget about him over time and come to terms that it was all over between them. nike shox Although he was touched by her undying love for him and wanted so much to accept her again, he remembered why he rejected her in the first place-she was not the one he wanted. nike 360 air maxSo he hardened his heart and turned her down cruelly. nike running shoesSince then, three years have passed and the girl never return anymore. They never even wrote to each other. NIKE air shoes The guy went on with his life..... still searching for the one but somehow deep inside him, he missed the girl.
On the Christmas of 1995, he went to his friend's party alone. "Hey, how come all alone this year? Where are all your girlfriends? What happened to that Vancouver babe who joins you every Christmas?", asked one of his friend.nike air max He felt warm and comforted by his friend's queries about her, still he just surged on.
Then, he came upon one of his many girlfriends whom he once requested to pose as his steady. He wanted so much to ignore her ..... not that he was impolite,wholesale nike shoes but because at that moment, he just didn't feel comfortable with those girlfriends anymore. nike shox torchIt was almost like he was being judged by them. The girl saw him and shouted across the floor for him. Unable to avoid her, he went up to acknowledge her.
"Hi......how are you? Enjoying the party?" the girl asked.
"Sure.....yeah!", he replied.
She was slightly tipsy..... must be from the whiskey on her hand.

In 1981, ed hardy and his wife formed Hardy Marks Publications. In 2004, Christian Bale licensed the rights to produce the high-end Ed Hardy UK line, which is based on Hardy's imagery. Prior to the ed hardy clothing line, Bale was the Head Designer at Von Dutch Originals, which marketed the imagery of Kenny Howard. Don ed hardy, commented, As demand for my artwork continues to skyrocket, I felt it was ed hardy clothing time to take on a partner that could help me manage the demand and opportunities for the ed hardy T-shirts name. Iconix is at the forefront of brand management and clearly has the capabilities to dramatically grow the Ed Hardy UK business. I'm thrilled to have them as a partner. Cheap Ed Hardy are located in everywhere. We also believe that by owning the brand alongside ed hardy clothing, the founder, there will be opportunities to further leverage his iconic name along with his new artwork.
