Tuxedo cat with head through fence

Friday January 18, 2019 Pic of the Day.
I get a kick out of Avensby. She is the only one small enough to be able to pop her head through the fence that keeps the cats from coming into the basement. She watches me like this while I'm working. Look to the January 11 pic-of-the-day photo for more of an explanation and a picture from further back to get perspective.

Tuxedo cat looking out window sitting in cat grass

Thursday January 17, 2019 Pic of the Day.
I grow cat grass for the cats. I did not expect for it to be used like this, but he loved it. For some reason, I remember this moment well. Hard to believe it is 15 years ago.
Taken: January 2004.

3 cats

Wednesday January 16, 2019 Pic of the Day.
Following up from yesterday, here he is after being introduced into the family. I have to say, it is without a doubt, the easiest introduction of a new cat to the family of cats I've yet seen. He was so happy to be in the family, and behaved very well. The other cats did not seem disturbed by him either which is odd if you know cats.

Long hair tabby in pen

Tuesday January 15, 2019 Pic of the Day.
The day this guy became part of the family.
Whenever I've taken in feral cats, I keep them isolated from the other cats until the vet has had a chance to test them for illnesses. I learned that lesson the hard way back in the early 1980's when I took in a feral kitten that turned out to be sick and passed on the illness to my older cat who got sick and died not too long after.
My next door neighbor was a man around 80 who would throw dry cat food out to the feral cats, and this guy was one of them. There were about 20 cats or so who would feed there. Unlike the other feral cats who were hard to get near, this particular one had followed me around for a couple of months when I was working in the yard. He would actually sit right beside me while I worked, and when I moved, he would follow me. If I went into the house, he would be waiting when I came out even though it was not me who fed him. I did not want another cat at that point as I had too many. But, he won my heart over, and on a cold December day I could not take it anymore, grabbed him, and put him in the pen and took this picture. He was so happy, and loved the pen with food, water, litter box and blankets. The vet said he was disease free, and within 3 days of this picture was in the house.
I will show a picture tomorrow of his first day with the other cats, and he is in many of the previous pic-of-the-day photo's this month.

tuxedo cat on table in sunroom

Sunday January 13, 2019 Pic of the Day.
Without a doubt, this is by far the best picture I have of Margarita. I think it's appropriate that the picture was taken on Cornelius Day (August 15). Cornelius Day of course being the most sacred day of the year for Tuxedo cat lovers when the King-Of-All-That-Is (Cornelius) is celebrated by all of the most wise beings in the universe of pure consciousness.
Taken: August 2017.

These two sure like each other, even to this day.

Friday January 11, 2019 Pic of the Day.
I have to keep the cats from going into the basement. They have an access from the house to a sunroon by way of two doors that connects via under the stairs. Under the stairs connects to the basement however, so therefore the need to put up fencing.
There is usually someone watching me working from this area under the stairs, but not very often do I see a group of tuxedo cats only. Luckily, my phone was out and I got this picture.

Mother cat and two of her children

Thursday January 10, 2019 Pic of the Day.
Having had many cats over many, many years, I've observed some stereotypes of cats overturned. One of those is that cats don't know family members like humans do. In the middle here is Mumma who was 14 years old in this picture. She was not well, and had just come back from the vet. I set her down on this warm spot on the blanket when two of her daughters from her last litter (10 years old) came over to see how she was. They were both concerned, and ended up spending the rest of the night beside her. Mumma cat passed away 12 days later, and in that 12 days, all three of her remaining daughters stayed very close to her. It was obvious that they knew she was not well.

tuxedo cat

Monday January 7, 2019 Pic of the Day.
In the winter I put a blanket on the floor by this horizontally facing furnace vent. Cats love it. They hear the furnace come on, and head over to this spot and bask in the warmth.

two cats in a cat tree

Sunday January 6, 2019 Pic of the Day.
Fun cat tree picture. I like the way Margarita (the tuxedo) is peeking above the basket to see what I was up to. I was actually setting up to take a picture of Elly-May in the tube when Margarita popped her head up.
Taken: December 2018.

cats on cat tree top

Saturday January 5, 2019 Pic of the Day.
I have been trying to get a picture of these two together for a very long time. I've always thought their faces were quite similar. However, the one in the basket does not like or trust the other one. Oh well, cat politics.
Taken: December 2018.
