Actually, looks like what any tabby looks like when they're wet. I'll bet he looks like any other domestic tabby when he's dry.

Sure, just like Agent Orange is really my president.

No, someone did not mistake a mountain lion for a lost cat

(I do have an orange cat, fwiw, shown somewhere in these 64 pages.)

So where was Fritz while this was going on?

My money has him up in the rafters preparing to pounce upon that oh so inviting fur covered combination pillow/scratching post.

You're probably close. Interesting (and funny) thing is that, judging by their behavior, Felix seems to perceive Drinka as someone to play with, Fritz treats her more like something to play with:

I’ve been hiking and backpacking long enough that I’m sure I’ve/ we’ve been seen and evaluated by one or two at some point. Glad to have never encountered any eye to eye from any distance. There’s been other wildlife, but cats are something else.

My little murder muffin. She's just over four months best we can figure. Tiny when I got her, and about four and a half pounds at her last appointment. Damn, they grow up quickly.

Notice the guitar case is next to the scratch post.

When up on the pedestal does kitty like to strum a bit?

Hoping strings are not ___gut.
