tuxedo cat using orange tabby as pillow

Monday February 18, 2019 Pic of the Day.
Avensby is using "Uncle" Leon as a pillow. I was walking by the back door and saw this. This picture is taken through the back door window.
Taken: June 2018.

tuxedo cat sleeping on chair

Sunday February 17, 2019 Pic of the Day.
Avensby is warming her backside in the sun on the window shelf I put up for the cats. The warm sun is making her sleepy.

tuxedo cat sleeping on chair

Saturday February 16, 2019 Pic of the Day.
Looking through pictures I've taken, I happened upon this one. I don't think I've seen it in years. Cornelius looks quite contented here.
Taken: February 2007.

Ragdoll cat on computer Keyboard

Friday February 15, 2019 Pic of the Day.
Another picture of Sugar, following up from yesterday, showing her like of the computer keyboard. I wanted to include this picture as I'm quite taken with the colour of her fur.
Taken: February 2019.

Ragdoll cat on computer Keyboard

Thursday February 14, 2019 Pic of the Day.
This is Sugar. The picture was sent to me with an explanation that Sugar really likes the computer keyboard. There are lots of pictures on the web with cats and a computer mouse, but this is the first one I've seen about a cat and a computer keyboard. A very beautiful cat. I'm told she is a Ragdoll cat. Remarkable slate blue eyes.
Taken: February 2019.

three cats and a heater

Wednesday February 13, 2019 Pic of the Day.
Three cats and a heater. Cats do love warm. Whenever there is an issue like tension between cats, I put down a blanket or two, turn the electric heater on low heat, and set the cats who are tense down by the heat. Poof, problems forgotten - at least for a while. Luckily for me, this is most often in cold February - cat mating season - when all the Tomcats outside come by and spray the windows setting off my indoor cats. Since they can't get out to fight, they take out their frustrations on each other sometimes. Hence, the heater fix.
Taken: February 2019.

two tuxedo cats on sofa

Tuesday February 12, 2019 Pic of the Day.
The one on the right is Dexter who was a four year old Tomcat when I got him on February 11, 2012, so it has been seven years he has lived with me. On the right is Margarita who was a two year old stray I got on February 14, 2014. Best Valentines Day gift ever.
Taken: March 2014.

tuxedo cats on lap

Monday February 11, 2019 Pic of the Day.
Normally I don't post pictures of my cats on this site with me in them, but this time I will make an exception. I got up on my zero gravity chair, and within moments, two tuxedo cats got up on me, one on each thigh in a mirror image of each other. This is really something because these two don't care for each other. I took the picture just to prove to myself in the future this actually happened. On the left is Avensby, the right is Margarita.
Taken: February 2019.

tuxedo cat in bookshelf

Sunday February 10, 2019 Pic of the Day.
I was looking all over for Avensby. Could not figure out where she was hiding. Then, a little movement caught my eye - she was on the very top shelf of the bookshelf which is about 7 feet high. She had just been watching me look for her and calling for her.
Taken: August 2018.

cats in window

Saturday February 9, 2019 Pic of the Day.
This picture beat the odds. If you know photography at all, this backlit picture taken in an unlit room with a bright sunny, snow covered winter's day out the window had all the odds against it. And yet, it turned out better than I could have hoped. I had no expectations for this to be a shot I would use on this site, just a shot for my memories. These two are watching another cat play with a cat toy.
Taken: February 2019.

tuxedo cat in basket

Friday February 8, 2019 Pic of the Day.
I got very lucky with this shot. Andi is in the top "turret" basket on my home-made cat tree which is taller by a good amount than me. I held the camera over my head, into the basket and pressed hoping to get a shot of Andi. When I got to see the picture I was amazed. I'm one of those people who take a lot of pictures, and if lucky, 1 out of 5 pictures is a good one, but what great luck this was as it really captures Andi's personality. I bet she wasn't sure what was going on at first when the camera just appeared out of nowhere.
Taken: February 2019.

tuxedo cat by fire

Thursday February 7, 2019 Pic of the Day.
Another picture of Cornelius by the fire in the log cabin in the woods I used to live in.
Taken: April 2007.

tuxedo cat on chair

Wednesday February 6, 2019 Pic of the Day.
So, following up on yesterday's picture: it was all night before Dexter went pee, so that is how long he had to stay in the dog pen. He was not happy about this at all. After I let him out, and I got the pee into a container to take to the vet, I took a picture of Dexter because I could tell he was very annoyed with me. This picture says it all.
Taken: January 2019.

tuxedo cat in dog pen

Tuesday February 5, 2019 Pic of the Day.
I had to get a urine sample from Dexter. I got a special cat litter from the vet to not absorb his pee. The only way I could know it was his pee and not one of the other cats, was to keep him in my large dog pen with the litterbox with the special kitty litter. I put the cat tent in there, and he really enjoyed it - for a while. Once he went pee, I let him out.
Taken: January 2019.

tuxedo cat relaxing by fireplace

Monday February 4, 2019 Pic of the Day.
Cornlius enjoying a great spot in front of the gas fireplace many years ago. I had forgotten about this, but I used to think the fur pattern on his stomach looked like a hurricane from above.
Taken: March 2005.

tuxedo cat with teddy bear

Sunday February 3, 2019 Pic of the Day.
Cornelius with his teddy bear. This actually belonged to my father. He was given this when he was in the hospital during the mid 1990's. After my father died, I got the teddy bear. After I got Cornelius in 2002, he decided it was his. This is the most common way he used it, but I also saw him walk around with it in his mouth. He had it until 2009 when it was destroyed by the kittens I took in with their mom in November 2008.
Taken: March 2005.

Forest cat

Saturday February 2, 2019 Pic of the Day.
Fiona is very hard to get a good picture of as she is always moving. I love the colouring on her coat.
Taken: December 2018.

cat climbing cat tree

Friday February 1, 2019 Pic of the Day.
This is Norton climbing the cat tree post. Instead of using the built in system to climb up the tree like the other cats do, he climbs the post. You can see a diamond shaped hole that is part of the system. Last year in January, Norton was to the vet for his yearly. The vet asked if she should clip his nails. I said, yes and it was done. Later that day, Norton went to climb the tree and he just slid back down. He was so confused, he could not figure out why he could not climb suddenly.
Taken: December 2018.
