Our Cats

We had lots of Cats. Originally four, but sadly, as of October 2020, we are catless. You’ll find all of them here though.

Night, night, Tubby – Today we helped Tubby cross over the ‘Rainbow Bridge.’ It’s amazing how these little furry people manage to worm their way into our hearts. Even irritating ones like the Tubbmiester. Tubbs was the last man standing of our four cats and managed to see in eighteen years. One-minute read, 3 pictures

Sleeping Rainbow Tubby – At seventeen Tubby’s definitely getting ready to cross that ol’ Rainbow Bridge, but his tenacity continually surprises us. 2 pictures

It’s tough being Tubby — We have a new nickname for him — Roomba. Poor blind Tubby earned it by the way he navigates around the house. He’ll walk off in a random direction until he hits a wall and then head off in some other random direction. One-minute read

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

Tri-puss – It’s an uncommon configuration, and for Blue Kitty to let Tubby touch her is almost unheard of. And it’s a cute picture too.

Sprinky – Nothing is out of bounds. 2 pictures

It’s all in the eyes – Tubby has always had problems with his eyes, it’s a birth defect.

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

Mao & Tubbs. I had been getting a refill of coffee from the kitchen when I walked by these two looking particularly cute.

This cat configuration is what we call a ‘Tri-Puss’.

Our poor little tropical Burmese likes to find somewhere warm to sleep. Also in this post … I’ve been busy …

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.

Too Many Cat Pictures – The trouble is the cats are a constant source of amusement – so you cannot ignore them, or their strange foibles (and furballs). 5 pictures

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.
