Pumpkin as a kitten...

Even though Pumpkin is still a young cat, somedays I miss the kitten.







Who would believe such pleasure from a wee ball o' fur? ~Irish Saying

The Young Red Kitty (now a Cat)

video

I fell in love with Red Kitty when he wandered on to our farm in Iowa back in 2002. His eyes were an amazing orange color that matched his amazing orange fur. It was love at first sight...and it was mutual love, too. I love boy cats...they can just be so darn affectionate!

The Red Kitty was probably about 6 or 7 months old when he moved in, and after we had him neutered, he moved into our house with 3 other cats and a German short-hair pointer. Later, he moved to Woodstock with me. Back then he was the young punk of the house...here he's become the elder statesman. Time flies!

I was searching for old photos of him and haven't had much luck with finding stills yet (my early digital photo filing was a disaster!) But I was very happy to find this little clip with a collection of other ones. He was then, and continues to be, quite a character. Red is a credit to the Red Cat Race, if I do say so myself!!

Dances with Worms

Hobbes sniffs and licks them too, although I have never seen him actually eat one. He does have standards, you know.

Fluffy Friday # 20 : A blue bouquet for Calle Cat

The snow has finally disappeared!

And the two-legged kits gave me a bunch of blue flowers!

By the way, can anyone tell me the name of these flowers?
Happy Fluffy Friday!

Is having an orange cat addictive?

Yep.
Once you go orange, you never go back.

Sherpa Reaches for the Light

Or a bug or something...

The silly kitty likes to sit on the CPU



And he gets attracted to who knows what



He is very determined to catch whatever it is.



It's probably just a piece of dust.
Crazy kitty!

Private Life of Red

I was surprised to walk in on this today! I never saw Red and Mariah sleeping nose to nose, almost cuddling...wait, there was no "almost" about it, they had their arms about each other!

So I disturbed them and got this goofy look, like huh?

Then Purrmeister decided he had to get in on the action, which really ticked old Mariah off!! It was quite the tableau!

Fluffy Friday # 18 : Calle Cat is a cat with principles

Let's face it.

Being a cute ginger tom has its downside.

The two-legged kits are always there!

They want to play with me!

They want to carry me around like a toy!

To be a cat with principles is not so easy.
To have claws, but not to use them!

Happily, I have someone who can rescue me...

And she's usually there when I need her.

Happy Fluffy Friday/Saturday!

Red's Famous Talent





I'm working now to teach Purrmeister this wonderful trick. So far, he treats the water stream like a string, bats it all over, and makes a pretty big mess. Me? I only get my face nice and wet so that it's clean AND I get a nice fresh drink. I've already taught Mariah this trick but she doesn't like to stand right in the kitchen sink like I do. Unfortunately, I can't work the faucet myself, so I jump up on the sink, sit near the tap and stare at it until my mom shows up to help out. She knows what I mean so it works.

Maddux Goes Camping...

Well...not really. But he is definitely enjoying this little tent.
