Photo Friday: Classic Flying Holly

I dug into the archives and found a couple of photos I took nine years ago yesterday. This is Holly who lives with my sister-in-law, Felice. Holly is the original bad cat and my wife and I always wanted to take her home when we would go there to visit. That was before we got Chris and found out how much work a naughty cat can be.

Holly loved jumping and catching pieces of paper or toy mice.

I have not visited in a while but I believe Holly is still doing well. She is several years older than Chris but she did not put on the weight like Chris did.

I featured Holly several times on my blog, Just Fur Laughs. Click here for an example of one of my favorites.

    Goodness – she’s a champion jumper! Believe it or not at 25 lbs. Teddy loves to jump too – he gets some pretty good height in his jumps too for a big guy – must have good springs in his legs! HAHA

    Hugs, Pam

      That’s great. Chris is about 20 pounds now and he does not jump too much anymore. I know he still can jump but now he wants me to pick him up and put him on my lap.

    Charles, seeing Holly, I can see why you’d love to have kidnapped her! She’s beautiful and a delight! Of course, I am biased toward tabby cats, though my current kitty is a smoke Persian. His mother, however, was a tabby-marked Persian and I occasionally pick out hints of that pattern in Andy’s fur. I’ve found tabby cats to be a bit inclined toward super hero-ness. This link takes you to a post on my blog where you learn about Louie “Call Me Captain Me-Ow” Thomas, my late ginger tabby.

    onespoiledcat – Louie weighed about half a pound less than Teddy. He was a jumper, too, making some amazing distances for so much cat. He also thought he was a lap kitty, making having a pillow on my lap the rule of the day after the first time he did it. Once, he hopped on my lap and put us back on the floor since I was in a computer chair at the time.
