Talk to the tail


(…if you’re wondering why Baby’s fur is all funky on the side, it’s because he gets all matted and I recently cut all the knots out…)

The eye of Baby cat

Baby-kitty’s eyeball. I like the way you can see the lines of his fur and the contrast of his yellow eye against the black.
And yup, that’s me reflected in the pupil, in a most unflattering squat-pose. Sometimes I forget about reflections when I’m taking a photo…at first I thought it ruined the picture, but after a while I kinda liked it. It’s like he’s watching me watch him? As usual, your mileage will vary.

Cat and chair #1

My pet cat Baby was grooving on this wood chair the other day. Isn’t he sweet and cute? Looking pretty good for being almost 18 years old or so.

“At least this house has sunbeams”

I’ll take that sunbeam for 10 pts.

My cat Baby has been feeling old and sick lately and I suspect he won’t last a whole lot longer. I think he’s been feeling the cold of winter more than in past years, and during one of the sunny days last week he kept walking over to the sliding glass window and sitting in front of the closed vertical blinds. Once it became late enough for the sun to start hitting that glass door, I opened the blinds a little bit and he promptly lay down in the ensuing sunbeam to take a nap.

He’s had a good time being the “only cat” these past 8 months or so, after ending up being the only remaining kitty alive of my once-9-cat brood. I’m not sure if he’ll be making the move to the new house or not -still assuming that this move will be taking place, of course - it might be more stress than he could handle in his condition. We shall see.

It’s been sad to see him lose his confidence for balancing on his hind legs to do his patented paw-waving beg thing:

… when I hold out a finger now, he starts to make an attempt to rise, but then stops and just looks at my hand. So now I have to bring my finger down to him so he can still happily chew on my fleshy digits.
