Mine ducks under my bedcovers when T'storms roll through. Or the doorbell rings. Or when I have guests. Seriously, under the covers like any kid hiding from monsters.

She's a pro at photo bombing. Every time I photograph anything at home, she's in half of them.

Wow! She looks like she's right at home.
This is Meshach. He was so traumatized when we rescued him he lived under the bed for weeks, only sneaking out at night to eat and use the litter box. He came to be with us when he was 9 years old. He's sixteen now and possibly his twilight year

I'll presume that you know about The Bunny Museum in Altadena: https://www.thebunnymuseum.com/ . It's owned and run by the wife of the owner of Open Road Bike Shop, which is right behind the museum.

For a time my family owned a rabbit and a cat. The cat would chase the rabbit for a couple laps around the room, then the rabbit would chase the cat in the reverse direction. Some confusion about who was predator and who was prey...

She introduced herself to me while I was in the garage working on a bike, so there really is a bike connection here. We took her to a shelter to check if she was chipped (making sure someone else wasn't missing her), hemmed and hawed a bit, then brought her home. She's a nice addition to the house, and the other two cats have more or less accepted her by now.

Squeeks



Squeeks at feeding station
This is the first cat I have ever had. I adopted from a friend that passed. She is from the streets of Austin, TX, where David had adopted.She is now about as far east as she can get and still be in the USA, South Coastal Delaware.
Took her a while to get use to a new home and my dog Now she tries to play with Winner, my dog that is a rescue from a shelter. Winner still ignores Squeeks. It was 4 years ago today, Valentines Day, that I adopted Winner. I have to put Squeeks food where W cannot reach it.

I brought home a $20 Super Course project yesterday (the wheels and crank are some I already had, handy for the photo). Tigger was helping supervise the photo shoot.

@delbiker1, I saw the picture before reading your text, and I knew right away why the food was up there. We had a cat named Booger whose food was on the kitchen counter to keep it out of the greyhounds' reaches. Booger got cancer and had to have a hind leg amputated, and that made jumping up to his food hard, but we made him do it anyway.
