Cats!

26 Aug

Rocky and Bob

We had a near cat-astrophe here over the weekend.  All my outside doors are junk and need replaced.  Well, Saturday night, Rocky pushed the back porch door open and got out.  I wasn’t too worried.  I noticed right away and followed him out to pick him up and bring him in.  But he was already in a panic.

Rocky

Bless my Bob cat.  Really.  Bob is a jerk.  He can’t talk without swearing growling.  He will bite or smack you.  Sky knows better than to cross him, and he’s had it out with Rocky a time or two. I was a little surprised to see Bob hurry over to Rocky when I first tried to pick him up.

Bob

After Rocky ran from me, I had to go get a flashlight and put shoes on.  I called to him and searched, and I was getting a bit worried. Then I saw Bob.  I went to where he was coming from, and I found Rocky.  He ran again.  This kept up until I was frustrated and didn’t know what to do.  I don’t know what I was thinking when I let Sky out (okay–I was thinking Sky might sit on him and put Rocky’s head in his mouth and hold him until I could pick him up).

Rocky

It just made Rocky run again and Sky went into full maniac mode.  By the time I got him calmed down and back into the house, I’d lost Rocky again.  Then I saw Bob cat.  He was sitting under the magnolia tree, and Rocky was up just far enough that I had to go get a ladder.  Finally, I got him back in the house.  He’s much happier on the rainbow pillow than he was outside.  Hopefully, he’s done with that nonsense and stays where he belongs.

Snickers

I can tell the cancer is starting to impact Snickers’s quality of life.  He gets little twitches in his eye, and he’s been scratching his chin.  He’s tired.  I will keep giving him an egg and keep spoiling him as long as I can and he is okay.

Leo

Leo just keeps on being Leo.  I think he’s at least fifteen, most likely sixteen.  He just keeps on keeping on.

His eyes are gross from allergies, but it doesn’t seem to bother him.  Otherwise, he’s good.

He’s Back Downstairs!

1 May

You might recall that Leo decided to just move into the upstairs when Sky came.  He finally got brave enough to venture down the stairs, but if Sky would bark through the gate, Leo was gone. He was doing better, but then Sky got to start coming into the rest of the downstairs, so Leo was back upstairs again.  Well, he’s getting better!  He’ll actually come downstairs and stay down here.

Leo

He’s still not happy with the pup, and I am still working on Sky’s manners with the cats (Rocky does not help with that).  We’re getting better though.

I will say, I never thought I’d see the day all four cats were that close together.

Bob, Rocky, Snickers and Leo

They’ve been united by a common annoyance though.

I hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items at the top of my side bar.

Scavenger Hunt Sunday

16 Jan

This week Ashley gave us the following items for Scavenger Hunt Sunday: monochrome, complimentary, draw, mostly white, and treasure.

The blue jays were out here today enjoying the complimentary dog food.  They need it too with this cold weather (high of 12*F (-11.1*C) today; 0*F (-17.78*C) tomorrow).

I do have a big mostly white bird that has decided she wants to clean up under the bird feeders.

Pistol

She acts like she’s discovered some treasure.  As long as she doesn’t figure out she could reach up and dump the whole thing, she’s fine.  Do you see that udder?  She is definitely bred for the end of next month.

I do not draw.  But my camera has a drawing setting, so here is Snickers taken on that setting.  Pretty sure I’m not a fan.

SOOC

This was the picture I took just before on a normal setting.  I’m happy to say his antibiotics helped, and he’s doing quite well again.  We’ll cross our fingers and hope it lasts.

Finally, we have monochrome.  I had the hardest time with this one.  I went with Leo in grayscale.

He’s my sweet snuggly boy in this cold weather.

If you are interested in joining me for Friday’s Hunt, you still have time to join in  this week; otherwise, the items for next week at the top of my sidebar.

I’m also sharing with Bird d’Pot, Shadow Shot Sunday, Saturdays’s Critters, Camera Critters, and SOOC Sunday.
