I mentioned my cats in passing during my rant about my husband’s ex-wife. There were requests for photos, so here they are:
(Mr. Maven is working from home today and was kind enough to send me some pictures )
Cast of Kitties:
Jake. My oldest cat. I’ve had him for 10 years and he was full grown when I caught him in a live trap. He weighed 6 pounds and I think at least a pound of that was worms! I nursed him back to health and got attached. He’s been a great foster-dad to young kittens, but has retired due to his age.
Elwood. The infamous Three-Quaters Cat. When he was a kitten someone hung on the top of a chain-link fence. He lost his hind right leg to gangrene. No one wanted a “handicapped” kitten. I took him home. (He looks just like Jake, so Elwood was the logical name. He’s also from the same area I caught Jake. I sometimes wonder if they are more than adopted brothers. . .)
Astrix. The kitten, just had his 1st birthday. He was born in my bedroom in typical cat fashion: in the closet, not in the birth box I prepared. Mr. Maven adopted him.
