Friday at Home

So, while I slave away at work, here are two of my furries that enjoy the comforts of home, awaiting my return. On the left is Angel (Angelina Jolie, if you please), and on the right Timmy (Tiny Tim, who arrived one Christmas with a lame leg), her ever faithful companion and partner in play. He is the only one she tolerates to "manhandle" her - such a little tart! More details on these two coming up, so stay tuned!

Be sure to check out The Friday Ark and then Carnival of the Cats on Sunday.

The Arrival of Manitou

His name is Manitou, aka GlamourPuss. Here he is in all his golden splendour - it looks as though he is glaring down at one of his "underlings" - he, he - he may find out otherwise!

Here is his story: First time we saw him was over a year ago – he was just visiting – his fur was very matted but nothing like how it was when he came again 2 weeks ago – they were like rocks, poor thing - and coming off with his skin in some spots. He was in a dismal condition – so - we rescued him!! Much to the chagrin of the other furry inhabitants, especially our little black Angel who goes hyper-ballistic when he just looks at her (those females!) He is youngish – the vet said about 2-4 years old – happily he has all his teeth and claws, but sadly for him, he underwent another "procedure" whilst he was under being shaved (it was that bad). So – for 2 weeks his hormones kept raging – howling to go out. He seems to be finally settling down – he LOVES head-butts!! And he just wants to play with the others, but they are soooooo boring - he's wondering if he's entered a kitty retirement home! Hopefully things will settle down – it can get hairy at times!
