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.
Tigger 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.
More than one cat on the china cabinet almost always leads to a fight. When Floki sees Puck up there he cries at me to help him up. Usually, I say no because I know what will happen but I helped him up there this time and he was good.
The next time he was not so good. Stay tuned.
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.
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.
Here’s one now. Just pretend you don’t see him.
And take up as much space as possible.
Puck! I meant space up here!
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.
Whack! Now you are in the club.
Defending my space is exhausting.
One week later…
Cats can be very cute when they nap, like Floki when he sleeps all stretched out. Puck is not so cute with his eye boogers but we just can’t get rid of the eye issues around here.
I don’t know what has caught Puck’s attention here but it must be quite interesting.
