    It takes some people (notably the ones related to me) many decades to figure out how not to pose for a pic. Your 14yo genius has already figured it out!
    Great shot.

    My roomies

    So how does a perfectly normal cat owner acquire three of them, and head down the path to Crazy Cat Lady?

    Kitto was a kitten soliciting friends at the base of a hill at a bicycle tour in upstate New York. Her caregiver said, "take her home. She was dumped at my son's fishing hole last week, and we already have three cats." That was fifteen years ago. She's become a sleep-under-the-covers heat-seeking bony kitty.


    Blanche was born in my father's garage five years ago. (He's a cat collector...long crazy story.) I'd been waiting for someone to come along to be a buddy for Kitto. Blanchie is a talker, and appointed herself to be my alarm clock.


    This guy was a stray outside my last apartment move last year. He was extremely friendly, just wanted to a lap to sit on. I posted his availability on many message boards, but when it got cold I brought him in, fixed him up. (This pic does not clearly show his massive feet with the extra thumbs.)


    Kitto's still adjusting to Thumbsie, and Blanche is his best play buddy. (Hint: get the dollar store fabric tunnel.)

    RJ has posted a pic of my big boy Tigger but here is one that really reveals the extent of his over-eating:

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Love all the new cat pics! Kitto looks like she's rolling in catnip... that crazed look and bizarre pose.

    ZG, your Tigger picture should be entered in a Caption Contesttm.

    Since cats appear to be in the spotlight, allow me to introduce Tazz and Domino.

    Faithful readers should recall the story, a couple years ago, of the cat who disappeared in early February (northern Ohio winter temperatures very much a "happening") and was gone for a month or so. We found him hiding in the neighbor's garage, very skinny.

    He is back to being a big cat, although it doesn't show a lot in this photo.

    Domino appears to be part killer whale!

    Kitto was my introduction to the tuxedo kitty. Found one (on the internet) for my newly-widowed father, and "Supercat" is his best buddy. Follows him around like a dog. The breed (flavor) seems to have a very gentle personality.

    Here is my cat... well, actually it is my daughter dressed as a cat, for halloween. Since my husband is allergic to cats, no cat pets for us.



    And here is my daughter a couple months ago, when she received our chihuahua, Tuco, for a birthday present from my parents.

    Did they give her an espresso, too? Oh, wait, she wasn't unattended. (seen a sign saying that)

    I picked up a Wonder Woman pet costume, but can't persuade anyone to wear it.

    RJ and my cats are not overly fond of each other. The big boy we've posted pics of, Tigger, will amble into a room and sit down and look at me, look at RJ, and look back at me with the plaintive "Meow..." like he's choosing... So we sure were surprised when he plopped down on the couch next to RJ this afternoon. I was more surprised when I saw this:

    Pooch has since been shaved.

    Saw your pic and said to myself, "why is M'skis wearing Mardi Gras beads??"

    Maybe it's just the beard and glasses, like an Elvis tribute artist's sideburns...

    These are the daughters (14 on the left) (16 on the right) living at home
    and my youngest brother at the Garth Brooks Concert.



    The 16 yr old has her "Save second base" tee shirt on. Have you heard about those?
    It is all a matter of perspective!!!

    I don't know who will be more mortified -- my SO or M'skl. Only time will tell, but I am guessing M'ski.

    The two of us for my birthday some months ago. Still sorting over the most recent Disney trip pics for some good ones
