My son recently moved into an apartment with a female roommate that is not his girlfriend (further Stymieing my desire to have a grandchild). His roommate recently got a black kitten that she named Binx after the cat from the movie Hocus Pocus. When he told me about the kitten I asked where he was but he didn’t know. “He’s around somewhere,” I was told.
We talked for a few minutes and then the kitten showed up. I was amazed at how small the kitten was and I asked if he was old enough for adoption. “He is almost eight weeks old,” Chris told me (My son, coincidentally, is also named Chris). He said his littermates were twice as big as him.
I suppose he is right about his age because he gets around very well. He uses the litter box and goes up and down the stairs with no problem. I will be interested to see how big this little fellow gets.
In spite of the fact that Chris dominates Puck as the self-appointed alpha male, he really cares for him. You saw it in the last post and here is another example of the two of them hanging out as best buddies. I took this picture last night in low light with no flash so please forgive the less than perfect quality. I’m actually surprised it came out as good as it did.
Today is Black Cat Appreciation Day, a day to appreciate all black cats and dispel those outdated beliefs and superstitions that black cats are bad luck. Did you know that some countries and cultures believe black cats are good luck?
We considered ourselves lucky to have Puck and we really appreciate him. He is like the eye of the hurricane around here. Puck remains (mostly) good while badness is happening all around him.
Today is Black Cat Appreciation Day and we sure appreciate having our resident house panther, Puck, who is always very well behaved when he is not pooping on the couch.
Alone at last.
I don’t think cats can “technically” smile but it looks like that is what Puck is doing in this picture.
Tomorrow is moving day and Puck is blissfully unaware.
I did Frankie’s profile four weeks ago and though I would show Puck’s profile this week. Puck is a difficult cat to photograph but I think this photo is pretty good. What do you think?
Puck, being a black cat, is somewhat difficult to photograph and I have very few good photos of his face. This one of him with Frankie is not perfect but I like it. What do you think?
Believe it or not, there are some cats that don’t run out the door to greet the “monsters” on the other side. For those, you will want to have some good hiding places for them to “hunker down” this evening. I recommend a good-sized sock drawer.
