A vegetarian human's adventure with cats

Happy 9th Anniversary Trio!

Hard as it is to believe that 9 years have gone by so quickly, today’s the anniversary of the arrival of Caesar, Macaroni, and Fireball.

The Tiger Boys are still a bit spooky, and the girly girl still loves to be in the middle of all the action, but they’ve remained a tightly bonded trio. The human is so glad that she adopted all three and kept them together. They are too.

You Wash My Back, I’ll Wash Your’s

The human found Caesar and Mac having a cuddle this morning in one of the kitty beds. Mac had her foot on Caesar’s hip and Caesar had a big forepaw wrapped around Mac’s neck.  In fact, he was giving the Merkitty a thorough washing when the human first saw them.

Taylor & Ing Kitties – Part VII

Caesar’s dedication to grooming the other kitties knows no bound (or boundaries)…and the Merkitty is just fine with that, thank you very much!

Taylor & Ng Kitties Redux

IMG_1469Let’s hear it for the snuggle kitties.  It’s a rare sight to see only one of the kitties sleeping alone somewhere. There usually are two close together and often three.  I guess it’s nice to share!Snuggle Kitties

Taylor & Ng Kitties – Part V

There’s no way I could ever “pose” them as sweetly as they pose themselves. They really are this cuddly. You just never know what positions you’ll find them in as you walk through the house, which is good motivation to never be far from a camera.

Taylor & Ng Kitties – Part 3

They may not be related, but the three meows sure do enjoy each other’s company.  It’s amazing the positions you will find them in, which means you always want to have your camera handy.  Note the curl in Fireball’s tail? He’s rather famous for how tightly he can wrap it around.  And here’s another cute one below.

Taylor & Ng Kitties

IMG_0590

In my late teens and early 20s, Taylor & Ng had a series of mugs for sale featuring animals in some rather playfully passionate and physiologically dubious positions.  These animal orgy mugs were all the rage when I was in college; my roommate had the penguins and I had the alligators.  These days, I no longer recall what happened to that mug — too many moves over too many years. However, I seem to have my own living version of Taylor & Ng’s cat mug.  My 3 darlings curl up together in the most interesting positions, a few of which I’ll share here.
