A Reason to Celebrate

Today is my handsome boy’s sixth birthday. If you would have told me back then how much he would mean to me, I probably would have laughed at you. Not because I would have thought it impossible, I just didn’t think there would ever be a cat to replace my Pooh Bear in my heart.

Now I realize that I didn’t have to worry about Neko replacing Pooh. I learned that my heart was big enough for both of my boys.

So here is my beautiful Neko Dubh posing on his birthday.

Recuperating

Neko ended 2018 by having dental surgery. His hair still hasn’t grown back from the shaving for his IV. He is slowly getting back to his old self except for some reason he is scared of Bo Jangles. He had lost so much weight I am impatient for him to gain it all back.

I have to say please keep up with your furbabies dental care. Poor Neko lost ten teeth due to a nasty infection. He may never be able to nibble on his favorite treat(Temptations) again. If you don’t want to brush their teeth, there are toys and snacks designed to help keep their teeth healthy.

Also regular check-ups are good to keep in mind. Let this new year be the start of a beautiful smile for your furbabies. They will be grateful.

Black Cat Day

I hope you all enjoy this Black Cat Holiday aka Halloween aka All Hallow’s Eve… you get the picture. I am patiently waiting for the witching hour. I hope your day is filled with laughter and lots of candy.

For their safety, please keep your kitties inside on this day. It may fun for us, but for others,  it is a time for mischief and mayhem. We need to keep our furbabies safe and happy.

Is It Halloween Yet?

Snoozing and conserving my energy for tomorrow night. After all, it is The Black Cat Holiday.

Please remember to keep your kitties inside tonight and tomorrow because it is an ugly world out there filled with people who would hurt them on this holiday. And remember that black cats aren’t bad luck, they bring you the best kind of luck with a whole lot of love added in.

My Buddy

Magic, the Wonder Dog has been my buddy since I walked in the door. He still is trying to understand the fascination I have with the white tip of his tail. We are the official greeting team. He barks his welcome and warning, and I greet each visitor personally. ~Neko

Great Beginnings

Come back to bed Meowmy, snuggling is the greatest way to start the weekend. I mean, how can you resist a cuddle buddy like me? ~Neko

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

Piggy Boy

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

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.

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.
