The Cat’s Eye Gang

 

You may have seen the tag #theCatsEyeGang on all my photos of the cats who share their lives with me. What you may not know is that they are the inspiration for the characters in my manuscript I am currently working on.

The Tales of The Cat’s Eye Gang has been a labor of love as I have created characters that not only share each of the cat’s names but some of their characteristics. I decided when I began this story that I wanted to include my readers in the process and began a blog to share the story as I have been writing it.

Each post takes us into what I have written for the past few days, unedited, just as I wrote it. The first draft in all of its glorious calamity. You can find it on my author’s site here on WordPress or at its original home on Blogger. I have added the links below.

Tales of The Cat’s Eye Gang 

I am coming to the final chapters of the manuscript and thought now was the time to share the story of how the Cat’s Eye Gang was born. You can see all of the cat’s names simply by mousing over the photos. Enjoy!

Getting Along

We are still seeing some adversity towards Gizmo, the newest member of the gang, pictured on the left. He tries hard to be unthreatening but the others still see him as the enemy. Take for example Miss CeCe. She has always been this timid fraidy cat but ever since Gizmo came to stay, she has become a how can I put this politely? Screw it. She has become a royal bitch. She will attack him eating, going to the bathroom, even sleeping. I have never seen so many cats be so put off by one cat.

The above photos show CeCe and Gizmo on one of the rare occasions when she is not trying to assert her bitchiness. Poor ‘Mo.

Guard Duty

I am very good a guarding my gal. That other fella needs to move on and find his own lady. ~Bo Jangles

I am so not his girl. He just can’t take a clue. Oh, well, this one time I’ll let him handle my dirty work and keep the new guy away from me. ~CeCe

I, for one, could care less what you do. I am just lounging up here to make the human upset by blocking the TV. Just leave me alone. ~Gizmo

When stalking your prey, a great hunter learns to adapt. Take for instance while lying in wait for my prey, Gizmo or the girl kitty, CeCe, I had to create my hiding spot.

I did this by knocking the junk basket by the front door onto the floor.  As you can see the oddest things end up in the basket. Once this was done I find the perfect way to hide where I can peek thru the handle to keep my prey in sight.

Now I wait for them to make a move towards the food and /or water bowl. When I see that they have come out of hiding to steal a quick nibble or drink. I am reading to make my move. The only problem is I forget to watch for the humans.

Oops! Busted by Auntie. What’s a guy supposed to do when he gets caught hunting the new guy. What any self-respecting guy would do. Look cute and wait for her to go away so I can resume my stalking in privacy. A kitty’s work is never done.   ~Dominic

 

Close…But Yet So Far

My love lies but inches away, yet for my heart that is too far.  Soon she will let me near, I but must have patience. ~Bo Jangles

He could lie closer if he didn’t hog the bed. ~CeCe

 

A Glimpse of The Past

I figured I would post a baby picture of Miss CeCe since I was a bad meowmy, and forgot her birthday. Hard to believe on May 13, 2017, she celebrated her tenth birthday.  We’ve been through a lot together.
