Photo Friday: A Pillow Named Frankie

Chris will use anyone as a pillow. This time it was Frankie. As I write this, my left arm is his pillow. Good thing I’m right-handed.


Photo Friday: That Look

You have probably heard that Siamese cats are cross-eyed. That is true, as you can see from this photo of Floki. cat Floki close up

I have heard a couple of different reasons for this. One is that their retinas are slightly off center so crossing their eyes allows them to see better. Another has to do with the way their brains interpret the images. That I didn’t really understand so I will leave it at that.

I also read that some breeders have bred this cross-eyed trait out without actually fixing the misalignment problem so if you see a straight-eyed Siamese cat, he or she may not have ideal vision.

Photo Friday: More Classic Chris

Here is another early photo of Chris with his adoptive sister and brothers. It was taken about ten days after we adopted Chris and it shows, even then, that he loves being the center of everything. Cats Abbey, Alex, Chris and Tigger

Here he is between Alex and Tigger with Abbey Sleeping at the top. Unfortunately, Flash is missing from the photo. I don’t think a photo exists with all five cats in it.

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
