Living with Carnivores

A vegetarian human's adventure with cats

Month: September, 2015


IMG_2764This is the Caesar snoozing on his back in one of the kitty beds last night.  Could you resist that soft tummy with its adorable leopard spots or those amazingly soft paws?
IMG_2762He was so far out of it that he allowed the silly human not only to take photos of him with the annoying camera and its exceptionally spiteful flash, but then he allowed her to bury her face in that soft tummy without clawing off half of her face. Such a nice mellow kitty. Such a rare circumstance. He surely doesn’t look upset or bothered.

Cuddles & Bites

IMG_2756The exhausted human took yesterday off from work, an unheard of situation. She was reading in bed with the the Little Red Bee while the Merkitty snoozed over on the kitty condo overlooking the upper deck. Eventually Fireball got bored with the human so decided to go seek out more intellectually stimulating feline companionship. He nor more than jumped across and landed on the kitty condo and started to lay down next to the Girly Girl than she started alternately washing his face and biting his neck.  Ouch, they play rough!IMG_2757After several minutes of such scuffles, the human braved the evil camera. Of course, as she sat up and snapped away, that startled the cats and caused them to change their positions.IMG_2758A few more rounds of biting and washing ensued before Fireball managed to completely turn over so he was facing the human.IMG_2759Eventually, they both feel asleep like this.IMG_2760

If I Close My Eyes, Maybe She’ll Walk Past…

IMG_2751<<The silly human walked past yesterday. I shut my eyes tight so she didn’t see me. However, she made that silly squealing noise and ran off to get the annoying camera.  Having endured several minutes of clicking, I escaped without having her mess up my coat or play with my paws. Whew, that was a close escape. Clearly the key was that I kept my eyes closed until the very end.>>

IMG_2753The human happened to leave the work cave yesterday afternoon en route to the kitchen for a drink of water and saw this.  Yes, that’s the Merkitty stretched out in a bit of sunlight.  Doesn’t she look svelte?

IMG_2752Originally she fit well into the little parallelogram of light and warmth. However, a few minutes later the sun had dropped a bit and Mac’s grasp of the light and warmth was starting to slip a bit. That seemed like a good metaphor for this time of year as we gently slip into autumn tomorrow in the Northern Hemisphere.
