the cat post

my, our cats 
are 
not
 something 
I blog 
about

until we adopted Jack
 a little over 2 yrs ago
 I, we had never been owned by a ginger tabby

Sans 
our first cat 
was black and white with big green eyes

when we put this 'neckerchief 
on her 
she loved it
 and 
we called her Tex


she was so smart 
maybe
 the smartest cat who ever owned us

a few months 
after she passed 
Gus came into our lives
while
 he was far 
from 
MENSA material
 he was 
Toonman's 
best friend


when Gus was about 9 yrs old 
we adopted Rose
she was my baby


a few months 
after Gus passed
we adopted Jack
our first ginger boy


sweet Jack
all he wanted was a friend
 but 
Rose wasn't interested she wasn't well
but 
he did try


after we lost Rose
Jack seemed sad 
he really seemed to be lonely
with
only 
Toonman to hang with


so we adopted our second ginger boy
Harry
he's amazing
 in under a week
 he's won over Jack


inspected
the
entire
 apartment



settled
 into life
 at
Casa Edelstein


if you can
 I recommend
 going to a shelter
 and 
bringing home a rescue
 they are the best friends 
you'll ever have

okay

I think I've gotten the cats covered
out of my system
 now
back
 to 
normal 
blogging


see you later!

  3. I loved your cat post. Your kitties, past and present, are beautiful. Out of 14 kitties which share my life at the moment, 11 are gingers and 5 are female gingers.

  4. Enjoyed this post. I did once find a tiny kitten, much too small to be without mama, and brought her/him, I forget, back to my place to keep for a while until he/she was older. I found the kitten a good home, but I kind of miss him/her....used to snuggle on my chest. Now Bibi does.

  5. Loved the cat photos! And awesome Halloween shot at the end. I love ginger kitties. Our two girls have been gone several years now. We keep meaning to go down to the shelter find new friends, but ...

  8. we have never been cat people....always dogs.
    but ever since our daughter has had cats and with my sister having a whole garage full of outdoor cats that roam on their forty acres, i have fallen for them.

    who knows, maybe next time.....it will be a cat...or two :)

  11. you say ginger, i say orange, but i now like the word ginger so that's what i'll say from now on. i love ginger kitties there's something about them that's very very special. did you know that the chances of a ginger kitty being female are about 20% or even less? that's right. so when my orange/ginger daiseymae was born in my barn she was a keeper. your kitties shine with character. i'm happy you have jack and harry. they're keepers. they will fill your heart and it will overflow. happy weekend to you.

  14. You're a good cat couple, for certain! It's obvious that your feline "children" are loved, well-cared for, and important in your household. Love all the photos, although I can't be a cat person.

  15. Awwwww Daryl, they look so happy together!
    They are so lucky to have you and Toonman, and I know you feel very lucky to have them too.
    I am so glad that everything worked out.

  18. What sweet cats you have owned.... I mean, Have owned you. I miss having animals but when you travel a lot, it is best not to have them.

  19. I caught Henri looking at the adoption board at the local animal shelter thrift store the other day. That made me smile and so did all the sweet pics of your former and current babies.
