Thanks to Amy for sharing pictures of her gorgeous little balls of fur from Australia:
Greetings from Australia 🙂 I have been enjoying your blog for some years now.
I got my two current masters nearly 11 years ago. The orange one is Amber and the black one is Sparky. I don’t know if these pictures will make it in time for Friday though (I get the time zones mixed up sometimes). I don’t think you choose your cats; they choose you.
Anyway, thanks for sharing your blog and I hope all is well with you in the future.
Thanks to Amanda for this week’s furry mental health break:
Here’s Maxiumum Cat (he’s the most cat he can be), sleeping with his back foot on his face. He’s a strange one.
Thanks for Daniela for giving us a distraction from whatever horror Trump is doing at the moment (I’m writing this up Thursday night so I’m not exactly sure what horrors are in store for us tomorrow, but I’m certain there will be horrors) with pictures of her departed furry friend, Gigi.
Cynikitty died a little over a year ago and I’m still not over losing him. I think of him often.
Thanks to Old Geezer for sharing with us some much needed cat pics after this week of neverending news:
Attached is a photo of our barn cats. They are feral cats who keep the rodent population down in the barn. Their reward is dinner at the cat trough each evening.
Have a good Caturday.
Thanks so much to Rich for sending in a picture of his cat. This is the best thing that I’ve seen all week. (Granted, that’s not saying much considering all the news coming from DC at the moment..)
Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your cats! (Or even if you just want to say hi).
Been a fan of your blog since the beginning (2003?) – I don’t comment all that often, but if I do, I use the screen name Oppledot. I have submitted once before when you asked people to send in their favorite coffee mug. I sent you my Marvin the Martian mug, and it was fun to see it posted!
This is Joe – he adopted me when I found him at the Humane Society in Minneapolis in 1998. He had just been weaned from his Mother. Over the years, Joe has lived in multiple locations in 2 States, been an indoor and outdoor cat, and has had so many adventures – any other cat would be very envious.
This Spring Joe will turn 19 years old (the picture was taken in 2008). He is in his twilight years for sure. His eyesight is 90% gone, if not completely, he has thinned down considerably and is the most finicky eater.
I could go on for pages about how much this guy has affected most of my adult life – he will be gravely missed when he decides that enough is enough.
Fun fact – He is polydactyl – 27 toes, making his front paws two of the best mouse-catchers I have ever seen. A true Hemingway Cat!
and Joe (AKA – Bubbles, Bubba, BeeBoo, JoeJoe, and “Ouch, that hurts when you bite my chin!!”)
I’m traveling today and will be back early next week. Have a safe weekend everyone. If you would like me to post a picture of your cat for next Friday, send submissions to email@example.com.
Christmas and New Year’s greetings, Chris!
Here is my submission for your guest cat series. These cats are my family of ferals. When this photo was taken, the kittens were about a year old. The mama cat [second from the left] had been coming to my house for meals for some time and then brought her babies when they were old enough to venture.
All are still with me, but now neutered and with posh outdoor shelters for crummy weather.
Thanks for your blog!
This is my MIL’s cat Poo Bear. He’s a really fluffy orange and white kitty that’s getting on in his years. Recently he got hit by a car and has a piece of metal in his lower jar, so he can’t close his mouth all the way. He’s super chill.
Also from Andrea:
Sherbert lives with my MIL but was originally my husband’s cat. One day Sherbert showed up on his doorstep so he gave him a piece of ham. Sherbert decided to adopt my husband after that. He’s the kind of cat that has to stay indoors permanently because he’ll try to make friends with all the animals outside, including those that want to pick fights with him.
