Photo Friday: Sofa Buddies

Chris is a very touchy-feely cat and loves to lie against, or on top of, any cat or human that will tolerate it. This time it is Floki but now he is on my lap as I write this.

Does anyone else have a touchy-feely cat like Chris?


Photo Friday: Basket Case

Rose keeps a basket by her work area that she uses for trash. The other day Rose emptied the basket and set it on the kitchen cart temporarily. Frankie immediately jumped on the cart, tipped the basket over, then got inside.

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.

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…


Chris’s Doppelgänger

We were near our former home yesterday and I saw a cat that looked just like Chris. His legs were a bit more white but other than that he could be mistaken for Chris.
Bad Cat Chris's doppelgänger

When we lived there, someone told Rose our cat had escaped and, knowing how bad Chris is, she went to retrieve him. It wasn’t until she was about to pick him up and bring him home did she realize the cat was not Chris.

When I saw him yesterday he even acted like Chris. He was perfectly comfortable with strangers. He let me pet him, he talked to me, he even rolled on his back like Chris does when he goes outside.

Perhaps ginger cats really are friendlier.
