Inspiration to do more stretching... Fu Fu in her favorite spot by the heat vent. Vet visits are always fun ...
Vet: Mr Woodward, how do you spell Fu Fu?
Mr Woodward: Eff you.

This is Spotty. She's probably about 15 now. She was just another shelter-bound disposable city feral who ended up at my house twelve years ago because I had room. She's indoor only and for several years I could not touch her. She just wanted to be let be. She now comes over to say hello about once a week. No matter, she has a good life here with my others, and it's about them, not us, right?. She's just a lap cat who had a different upbringing.

Hey Ledge Rat--is that a chocolate calico or just a black/white/orange one?
I've got my second chocolate cali and they are special!

So sorry for your loss. Both my boys are closing in on 20 and I'm kinda dreading the inevitable.

BTW, great portraiture, "Still Life with Crinkly Whiskers".

Rest in nip, Carlo!

We appreciate the very kind words, tbc and plund.

plund, I hope you get to spend copious time with your lads. All will sort itself out if you just keep giving care and compassion as you are. When the time presents itself, you could consider having a professional come to your home. Best wishes to you and yours.

Carlo looked like he had a good long life! If they could they all would tell some great stories that would be the equal of any of ours.

Not quite as cross-eyed as she was when she was young.

Originally she was a back yard stray who showed up around 2004. I trapped her, got her spayed and she tamed up pretty well eventually, so I brought her in to live in the house for a while and got her adopted through a local rescue group. The adopters had just moved into their house a couple of weeks earlier and were unaware of a hole in the basement wall leading to the outside. Mary found it sometime that first night. Despite a few evenings walking the neighborhood with a couple of other volunteers, talking to people and handing out flyers with her picture we couldn't find her. She was obviously scared and hiding. The adopters thought it was a ridiculous amount of effort for just a cat (jerks). It was December 2006 and I hoped her previous outdoor survival instincts would kick in, and vowed to look after all the stray cats in my neighborhood myself from then on. That is how I became a hoarder.
March 2007 and I got a call from one of the people with whom I had spoken three months earlier when I was searching. Her daughter had seen a black cat run out of their garage and could it perhaps be the cat on the flyer on their fridge?
I set four traps in various back yards and the next morning Mary was in one of them. She clearly wanted to come back home with me to reassume her role as spoiled princess.

It's great having a "pet" who is basically feral.

Cat. Survival situation. He has to remember to turn around once in awhile in order not to catch on fire.

Love Harley! And dig your Harley, TK!

Heartwarming tail tale follows...spent a couple of weeks in the hospital in 2013; after a 3-day 'transition' at my mommy's place, FINALLY got back to my hovel. After I was comfortably ensconced on the couch, my buff / white harley Horton ambled over, laid down on the pillow above my head, and wrapped his tail around my face like a helmet chinstrap. What a great 'welcome home'!

I do love the fuzzbugglers...
Mike.
