Our Cats

We have lots of Cats. Originally four, but now alas, only three. You’ll find all of them here.

Ginger & Sprinky – When you can’t get any work done because your cat likes Bach’s Cello Suites as much as you do… [30 sec. Video]

Leaf Me Alone. Sprinkles enjoying the sun in the backyard. [3 pictures]

Meanwhile, here are some kitties – Life got busy, and things like processing and posting pictures have had to take a back seat. So, in the meantime here are some cuuute kitties. [3 pictures]

Sprinky – Nothing is out of bounds. [2 pictures]

Desk-buddy – Yesterday I thought Sprinky had finally grown tired of laying on my desk, but no, here she stays, pretty much 24 x 7. [6 pictures]

This Wasn’t Part Of The Plan – When I cleared my office and changed the couch I did not anticipate the increased attention my office would get from the feline members of the family. [5 pictures]

My Two Office Fur Balls — They’ve left just enough room for me to sit between them.

The squirrels have been working on a new route. Sprinky considers this cool because she can sit and watch them from the comfort of my filing cabinet. [1 picture]

The trouble is the cats are a constant source of amusement – so you cannot ignore them, or their strange foibles (and furballs). Rather than make a load of separate posts here are some recent cat pictures. Tubby is pretty much blind and deaf. Sometimes it is hard to work out exactly what he thinks …

Ginger lent Tubby her phone and Tubby wore himself out trying to watch bird videos. It’s tough being a half blind, half deaf cat.

With single digit temps outside Tubby is quite content to snooze away the afternoon in the warm.

Sweet dreams Getzger. Goodbye Mr. Cat.

Mr. Cat has been giving a very good impression of settling onto the ‘final glide-path’ this past couple of days. It was good to see him show an interest in joining me for a shower. This is part of our daily ritual. Getzger is waiting for me to take a shower so he can drink …

The cats all know that they are not allowed on the kitchen table while we are eating. Mostly they are pretty good about it. Mr. Cat likes to sit here and keep an eye on what’s going on, and be ready should scraps of food be offered or neglected long enough for him to mount …

Tubby (a.k.a. Rotters) was sitting on the end of the bed and I rather liked the back lighting. I thought I’d try a grab a picture. Look carefully and you can see his strange eyes. The poor cat is blind in his left eye and his right eye is badly obscured. He frequently bumps into …

Main Coon Cat - Sprinkles in a small box

No box is too small for our Maine Coon, Supa-dink aka Sprinkles.

If I could just train Tubby to do my Facebook posting for me.

When she’s not on my desk Blue Kitteh spends most of her time pushing Zees and generating fur on my spare chair. Another High ISO, Slow shutter speed, hand-held picture @ 1/10 sec.

Most mornings this is how I am welcomed to my desk. Blue Kitteh eagerly awaiting her morning petting session. She’s sassy and totally socially inept. Despite all her aloof and haughty ways, every now and then she gets an attack of the cat crazies and tears up and down the house at full speed.

Tubby does like warm places

Tubby the Telly Watching Burmese cat sits watching birds on TV

Tubby was very enamored with this bird video a friend posted to Facebook. He also took quite a shine to a video of the Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church – Bishop Michael Curry. Who knew? Unlike Getzger Tubby has never been to the blessing of the animals.
