Classic Tigger and Flash

Here are brothers Tigger and Flash taken on this day in 2009.

Tigger, the ginger boy, was adopted by my mother-in-law in 2005. The shelter called the next day saying that Puck was essentially freaking out without his brother. They wanted her to adopt Puck or return Tigger. Since she didn’t want two cats and we didn’t want to send him back to the shelter, we adopted both, bringing our cat count up to six.

As a side note, their original names were Dooley and Ernie, but I forgot who was Ernie and who was Dooly.


Photo Friday: Lost Brothers

I decided to look into the archives for today’s Photo Friday. Sometimes it can be fun to stroll down Memory Lane. I found a photo of Tigger and Flash dated December 28, 2009.

cats Tigger and FlashTigger and Flash were brothers who we ended up with due to an unusual circumstance. You can read about them in my post “Life Before Chris.” We adopted them in 2006 and, unfortunately, Flash died in April 2010. Tigger passed away in early 2013. Both were lost too soon.

At the same time that I took the above photo, Chris and Abbey were on the cat perch just to the left.cats Chris and Abbey

Photo Friday: Puck’s Profile

Puck is a handsome cat but he is also difficult to photograph. As a result, he is a bit unrepresented on my Photo Friday posts. When I do manage to capture a good image of him, I feel like sharing.

On another note, the stray and her kittens that I wrote about in my last two posts may, or may not, be gone. I saw them last Sunday evening but since then the food I left out went uneaten until I noticed the bowl was empty yesterday morning, just when I was about to give up. I put more food in the bowl that morning and when I returned from work, the bowl was half eaten. Who, or what, ate it I don’t know.

My wife finally got a call from Meow Now who said they don’t catch kittens before the are old enough to be fixed, about eight weeks or so, because they are a TNVR organization and have no place to hold them. Rose said they were about three to five weeks. I think they might be older but I have little experience with young kittens Can someone help give me a better estimate. Please look at the picture on this blog post and tell me what you think.

Our Cats Have a New Favorite Spot

Last weekend we bought a kitchen utility cart and now it is the favorite spot for all our cat’s. Once the novelty wears off the appeal of it will probably die down, but now, even after a week, it is still popular. I just peeked around the corner to see Frankie sleeping on it.

Ok Puck,we have to defend our newly acquired territory from would-be invaders.

And take up as much space as possible.

Sorry Floki. This spot is for adults only.

Ok, you can stay, but first you must go through an initiation.

Floki! Who did you tell about this?

If you want to be up here, Frankie, you have to go through an initiation too.

Defending my space is exhausting.
