Feline Friday

I decided to take a break from telling you about new stuff in the shop in order to share some pics of my kitties today. You animal lovers will understand, I'm sure.

This is Smokey (yes, I know, we're not too original with the names at our house). He's our "old man", not because he's older but because he acts older. He doesn't trot around the house like the other cats, he slowly ambles along. When he eats, he bellies up to the bowl and wraps his arms around it as he buries his face in it. Nobody's sharing this boy's food!

Smokey is a homebody and would like nothing more than to sleep in the house all day. We normally shoo him out with the others in the morning, but today I decided to let him stay inside so that he can snooze. He's keeping Frisky company today; more on that later.

Here's my pal, Stripe. You remember him...he's the one that brings home snakes. Whenever Stripe comes to the back door, he looks through the window and catches your eye, then tilts his head to the side and even upside down, looking at you like, "Aren't I the cutest thing ever? Don't you want to let me inside?" Hmmm...note to self: time to clean that window again.

And here's my baby, Frisky. She's always being picked on by the other kitties so now she growls whenever any are within three feet of her. Hubby and I tend to baby her; she eats sitting in a chair underneath the kitchen table while all the other kitties eat together on the floor. And she sleeps right between our pillows every night. She took off for six days last week and worried us sick, so now we're keeping her inside. Poor thing's on Day 3 of her forced captivity.

This morning Frisky was sitting on the perch in the breakfast room window and growled at Stripe...through the glass. He had jumped up on the woodpile that's in front of the outside of the window and peeked in at her; she didn't like that at all!

Seems that most folks are either "dog people" or "cat people"; it's pretty obvious which camp we're in. Believe it or not, one of these days when we move out to the country and have some acreage, hubby wants to have a black Lab like he had when he was a kid on the farm. I figure the only way that will work is if we find a teeny puppy and let the kitties raise him! LOL

So what kind of pets do you have?

  1. aww! Your cats are cute. And what pretty eyes. I was never a cat person until Trixie decided she wanted to live with us. And then she brought us four adorable kitties. We really need to find them new homes but all four of us are so attached to them. Hope you have a good day.
    Blessings,
    Susan

  2. I loved seeing your kitty photos & hearing about all their different personalities. No two kitties are alike! I have Marvin my shelter cat and we hope to have a Bernese Mountain Dog soon - we're on a waiting list. Marvin loves dogs (to the point that he will run out of the house & pole vault the neighbor's fence in order to get to her dog.)

  3. Susan, that's just what happened to us! We're not "crazy cat people", we just started feeding a kitty that showed up on our doorstep and she had a litter a couple of months later. What can you do but take care of them and love them?

  6. Like you said..most are dog people or cat people. I'm a dog lover for sure! Nothing against cats..I've never been around them because of allergies in the house and such. But your kitties sure are so pretty..if they are as sweet as they are pretty I could become a cat person easily I think:) Have a good weekend! <3Lauren

  9. I want a cat like Smokey. I want an old man cat. I used to have a lover cat named Pusser and my ex hated him. I miss old Pusser. The hubby and I have Reynaldo. But the hubby likes to play rough, so naldo isn't going to be a lover...your cats are beautiful. I love that they each have their own personalities.

  10. Hi,
    I found you thru Bella's blog. I love your kitties, they are beautiful. We used to have a Russian Blue that looks a lot like your kitties and she was the absolute sweetest kitty ever. We miss her so much but we now have two fur babies, a big white fat Miss Sissy and a little black tabby baby kitty Indy. Lest you think we're all about the kitties here, we also have two puppies outside, a chocolate lab and a dalmation/lab mix. Great blog!
