Rouge et Noir

When trying to catch the eye of passersby, I opt for complimentary colors. I think red is my color, but Mommy says I look good with any color. I prefer rouge et noir. ~Neko

Study in Brown

When studying shades of brown it always helps if you have a brown tabby to use in said study. Miss CeCe was happy to oblige.

Getting Into The Groove.

Gray and white cat taking a bath.

When bathing, always remember to clean in all the grooves. Just like I am showing here by cleaning in between my toes. I know. Toe jam is a draw back but the things one does to be a handsome fella like me. ~Dominic

Big Laps

Two adult cats sharing a lap.

Excuse me big brother, I think there is enough room on Auntie’s lap for both of us. ~Dominic

Nope. I don’t think so baby brother. I like to stretch out on Auntie’s lap. That leaves no room for you. ~Bo Jangles

That’s okay Bo, I’ll just lay on top of you. See problem solved. ~Dominic

Piggy Boy

Black cat with his lunch all over his face.

Yes, I do get into my mama’s homemade pureed kitty food. It is so good and I get so hungry. What do you mean I have something on my face? ~Neko

I Am My Own Valentine

Tabby cat looking very regal.
I am my own Valentine.

Who needs validation from anyone else? I am the queen of this house. I deserve adoration and love year round not on just one measly day. ~CeCe

Outside Looking In

Spooky black cat
Our stray begger, who we have named Spooky because he likes to scare you.

Hi. My name at this house is Spooky. I am known by several in the neighborhood. I rule this backyard like a kingdom. I don’t let any other cats trespass in it. I have a older twin who lives inside. We like to mirror each other at the patio door.

It took awhile for the woofie inside to like me but now he will share my food and water which the nice humans provide for me. He also warms up a spot for me to sleep at night. Good woofie.

When I was a kitten I got injured and I came to this backyard to heal. The people really worry about me like I am one of their own. Well I think of them as mine so it is equal.

Looking Back.

Neko at three months.

I still find it hard to believe how tiny he was. All long legs. He reminded me of a spider monkey. And he was a clinger from the first moment I held him. He climbs up on my shoulder and that is where he stays as we walk around the house.

We both were searching for comfort when we found each other and I can only hope I have given him as much comfort as he has given me. He is my light in the darkness.

Personal Space

Neko looking very disturbed.

Why in the world do you have to disturb my personal space, Meowmy? You do know you have a zoom thingy on your camera, right? Here let me show you how to use it. ~Neko

Napping Done Right.

Bo and Neko on my lap.

When you are searching for the best napping spot. Nothing is better than a nice comfortable lap. ~ Bo Jangles

What is even better is if you are impeding someone progress. Such as not letting a writer work on her book. Sorry Mama… Not sorry. ~Neko Dubh

I’m Awake, huh?

Dominic hears the food can open.

What? Huh? I’m awake. Was that the sound of yummies being opened? Wait for the next can to be opened before climbing out of bed. ~Dominic

The Next Shift

Neko the substitute taskmaster

Neko has taken over for his sister at being my taskmaster. She needed her beauty sleep. He was doing a good job for a few minutes to let me take this picture but then he decided there were better things to do. He climbed up onto my chest for snuggles, so much for getting any writing done for the moment.
