    IronLace
    (596 items)

    I too like to take photos of random cats that I see while out & about. It's often hard to get a decent photo, as they are awfully fond of moving just when you go to take a picture!
    The first one is a Tuxedo cat that I've seen a few times in the front yard of a house I walk by on one of my regular routes. How perfect (should say purr - fect) are those markings? A real cutie.
    2. Further down the same street lives this venerable & dignified old ginger & white cat, usually to be found sitting half - hidden in the undergrowth, dozing while still upright.
    3. This photo was taken a few months back. This ginger charmer is called Lenny, & he belongs to my framer. He is the resident cat at this fine local business, & is super friendly & sociable to all the folks coming & going through the door. He enjoyed a good roll around at my feet, & as you can see, deposited quite a bit of cat hair on my jeans...

      Cats are great. There are a half dozen of them that live with me.
    2. IronLace IronLace, 7 months ago
      Many thanks artfoot! Six cats is quite a gang...most I've had at one time was three & that was intense as two of them didn't get along at all. Lots of stand - offs as you can imagine! :-)
      Haven't had any of my own for a while now...perhaps one day...for the time being I'm content to enjoy other folks' cats vicariously...
    3. artfoot artfoot, 7 months ago
      Yeah, six is a bunch. Fortunately they all get along reasonably well. There are four of them that live in the house and two more that are full-time semi-feral residents of the back yard. There's rarely a dull moment when they're awake.

      Sounds like they've got it all worked out - & also sounds like a lot of fun to observe!

      When I was young I was brought up with no cats just dogs so I thought cats were bad until I realized cats were not the problem..people were! Now we have to strays that live with us in the house and there both fixed.

      Many thanks, EJW-54 - & glad to hear that cats won you over in the end!
      I always had a cat around from when I was a little kid...first the landlady's cat, then I was given one that had been a stray/feral when I was about 8. That cat was partially domesticated, but still mostly preferred to live outside. Quite a few others came & went over the years, some given to me & others adopted. All very different little characters & I remember them with a lot of affection.

      Thank you SO MUCH IronLace. :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)

      Beautiful furballs in every case, also (in your tradition) beautifully pictured.

      EJW-54, your comment here especially poignant too. artfoot, I can't imagine 6 of 'em in here with me (though I have considered a 2nd...?) but have 'cared for' up to a dozen-ish ferals at a time around the alley behind my workplace in recent years...a full (big) bag of MeowMix a week or so's worth... <giggle>

      My current Woda (right here in my lap as I type) and one other before him (she was Roxy) actually became "rescues" that did end up coming home from there to 'live their lives in comfort', and like IronLace there's nearly *always* been at least one kittycat somewhere in my life. :-)

      "UNCONDITIONAL LOVE"...ain't that what the little furballs are so adept at providing us mere Human Beings...?? ;-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)

      Hmmm...one more little bit that otherwise just punched itself thru the rest of all that other noise now raging around in my brain as I prepare to close this computer and officially 'go horizontal'...

      Anybody else remember "TRIBBLES" from the now classic old Star-Trek TV series...and ain't we all actually kinda lucky those creatures *don't* actually exist anywhere, nor that all our random kittycats that *do* exist don't 'reproduce' so quickly enough on their own...??

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Trouble_with_Tribbles

      Instead of trying to find/link the actual video, that Wikipedia link should get anybody that might not really remember "tribbles" enough info...??

      <LOLOLOL><HUGS><WELL WISHES> to everybody!
    9. IronLace IronLace, 7 months ago
      Hey, glad that you enjoyed the post, AnythingObscure!
      Not being a Trekkie I had not heard of Tribbles, so it was interesting to find out about them...some resemblance to the ginger cats in my post may have caused the recollection, as well, perhaps? :-)
      Apparently the issue with "entire" cats breeding out of control is getting worse with climate change. There used to be a "cat season" (I remember getting some of my cats as kittens around November - late Springtime here) but now it's "cat season" all the time due to warmer temperatures. So it's even more important for them to be desexed!

      Amazing - so lifelike!

      Love cats!
      My son found a tiny 6-week old kitten wandering the streets, starving and dehydrated. That kitten is now a 14 pound tortoiseshell longhair by the name of “Mocha”
      ( she’s the color of coffee, get it?)
      I especially love picture three, with kitty on shoes. My Daughter has a seal point ( also rescued from the streets) that loves feet. If you go into the living room and sit, it won’t be long that she will be on them. What is it about cats and feet?
    14. IronLace IronLace, 6 months ago
      Many thanks, Vynil33rpm!
    15. IronLace IronLace, 6 months ago
      MsCrystalShip, glad you're enjoying the kitties & I totally agree with the cats & feet/shoes thing.
      One of the cats I had as a kid (a stray kitten that my father brought home) slept in a slipper until he grew too big...then, another cat of my acquaintance ( a visitor to the place I lived at) was filmed attacking a rubber "flip - flop" (we call them thongs here but I realise that everywhere else that term refers to a different article entirely).
      And yet another visiting cat, a charming Brown Burmese, went straight for my shoes the first time I met her...just after her "family" moved in next door.
      And as we know, cats also enjoy laptop computers, & any item of clothing that you happen to have left on a chair, bed, etc...

      keramikos - so shoes interest dogs as well...not being a dog person I was unaware, but certainly had heard of how some like to chew up shoes. The smell thing is probably the reason for the attraction for both cats & dogs, I guess. It's a world of smells for them, & they seem to especially enjoy the ones that humans find objectionable!
