Not huge- he's 20 pounds. Sometimes when I try to type on my computer he lies across my left arm. This tends to cut off the circulation in my hand.

He could just catch that "mouse" that's right in front of him.

My CAT



Actually an International Harvester TD-18 not a CAT. Picture was from Iwo Jima 1945 but we still had some of these in the early 60's.

No pictures just a memory of Alex, a yellow longish haired tabby who came to us as an abandoned kitten, then after being dipped in flea dip and killing many many dozens of fleas decided I was it.

I am riding the bike trainer in the garage. Alex is not happy, about a hand and a half of kitten, crying for my attention, but you know training, nothing to do right?

Alex goes quiet, hmm, look around can't see him, maybe asleep?

"Ouch"

Four sets of small sharp Kitten claws are sunk into the back of my jersey/shorts.

Like an experienced rock climber, Alex only moves one paw at a time as he scales my back, arriving at the summit of my shoulders where he pads from one ear to the other buzzing his purr and rubbing them.

Training was cut short that day.

Wadsworth has got to be a Maine Coon. He looks amazing, and he probably realizes it by the way he poses.

Straight up to his ear tufts!

Looking down from the mantel, he reminds me of a furry great horned owl.

Winnie

This is Winnie. She was a 9 week old stray kitten that must have wandered into my barn where I have a shed. She was locked in the shed,by accident of course, for 8 days until I heard her crying. This was about 4 years ago and she's been mine ever since. I've got 4 others, all strays, that people dump on my farm where they now have a home.

This is Sylvester who was thought to be a feral cat, who was living between several farms for two years just surviving and making black and white babies. He wasn't feral afterall and just wanted a home, so he's had one indoors now with me for 7 years.
