Life with Cats

Sounds like a movie title… Life with Cats.

This is Sapphire. The cat who loved us. He adopted us and has become part of our family. He is one of our three cats–all rescue animals of some sort.

I wish I knew his back story. Where he came from and who he loved before us. What happened to his tail? How old is he?

Saph is like a supporting character from a great drama, you always wonder how he got here. And you wish the screenwriter or director could tell you more.

I think he was a guru in a former life. How else could he do cat yoga on a Persian-style rug?

If the Dog/Cat Could Sass

Today I snapped a few photos of my pets. I look at them and wonder what they would be saying if they could sass-mouth me First off I’m glad Ruby can’t talk. She could tell some good stories on me. [Although the pet with the most stories happens to be in kitty heaven, (God rest your feline soul, Sky).]

Ruby is back from a week in doggie utopia at the ranch.

"Please don't make me take a Christmas Bath!"

This morning I caught a glimpse of this and had to do a U-turn to capture it on camera. I tried to get it on my good camera, but the batteries were out, so trusty iPhone it was.

"Stupid neighbor dog ... I have no idea why she insist on chasing the squirrels."

I came around from the other entry on the north end of the room. [ignore lamp shades, I was changing the light bulbs in the chandelier.]

"Yeah -- I'm on the table. So? "

I tried to work with Pussums, getting her to pose.

"Not now, I'm trying to get my vitamin D for the day and the days are short. Seriously? You're killing me with the photos. You've got to be the picture-takingest cat mom ever."
"I give up. Take my picture. But I'm not going to look you in the eye. You're getting the no-stare treatment."
