My handsome baby boy. He posed for me when I asked. Usually, he decides when I have the camera pointed at him, that it is time to mark the camera.

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!

Observer

As an observer of life, I find that things are more interesting outside rather than inside. But then you humans do something that makes me look inward again. Oh, well the sun feels good no matter which direction I choose to cast my gaze.  ~Neko

Reach For The Stars

20170913_232155Remember always reach for the stars… or a great piece of string. This is my string. No one else is allowed to play with it. ~Dominic

Nope, I’m not touching Dominic’s string, you can’t prove it. Okay technically it is touching my paw, but it jumped out and got hooked on my claw. You believe me, right? ~Neko

Suspicion

You know how you suspect someone is watching you? You feel little prickles of awareness but everywhere you look there is no one to be found. Yeah, I had that feeling this morning in the bathroom. Guess who I found being a “Peeping Tom”? Mr. Neko was hiding from the rest of the clowder on top of the cabinet above the toilet.

Whoever said I was too big for this napping place is a liar. See I fit just fine.

Now I’m not saying it might take a moment for me to totally uncurl from this position but hey, that is where cat yoga comes in handy. ~Neko

Miss Me

20170804_192452

This is the look I have been getting for being away so long. Neko has been scolding me about not posting photos of him and the rest of the Cat’s Eye Gang. I tried to explain to him that since my computer crashed as a way to tell me it didn’t like the new Windows upgrade; it had been a tad bit hard to post anything. As you can see Neko wasn’t buying my excuse, so here you have it, folks. My first post since the middle of July.

Neko in all of his scolding glory. Did you miss me?

Appreciating Black Cats

It has been a few days since I posted. I had some technical difficulties, but I have them fixed for the moment. To make up for my missed daily posts I thought I would give you a few pictures of two of my favorite black cats.

Neko as a kitten. Hard to believe he was ever this small.

Neko thinks even his shadow is cute; he’s right of course but please don’t tell him I said that.

spooks

You might think this is Neko but you would be wrong. This is Neko’s doppelganger, Spooky. He is a stray that has adopted us. He was injured in a neighborhood cat fight when he was just a kitten and ended up under a bush in our front yard. My niece felt bad for him so she began bringing him food and water while he recovered. Long story short he fell in love with her and when he had healed a bit took up residence in our back yard. Which he guards with the ferocity of a lion. Neko and Spooks will stand nose to nose with only the patio door between them and play the mirror game in which if one moves a certain way the other mirrors it. It is one of their favorite games.

For anyone who follows me and checked out my author’s page, you will know I am currently writing a book with the cats that share our life as the models for the characters. I called our little clowder of cats, The Cat’s Eye Gang. If you would like to find out more about my book please stop by and visit my author’s page at R.A. Buster- Writer & Blogger. If you check out my blog, you will find my book which I post as I am writing it. In all of its first draft glory. Let me know what you think and please feel free to subscribe to get each new installment as it is being written.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out the two black cats that bring luck into my life.

Cat Fancy?

“Hey, Bo is that Dominic on Meowmy’s puter screen? Does this mean he’s famous?” Neko purrs to his cousin.

“Nah, he isn’t famous. It’s just Auntie posting all those pictures she takes of us. Watch out! Too late she got us. Bet ya some Purina Temptations, that we are in the next post.” Bo teased Neko.

“Why do I think I will be losing this bet, Bo?”
