Two for the Price...

After seeing the entry below, Rory's cats wanted to join the action. I'm simply giving Rory a hand with the photo upload.

What do you do on a day when you don't really want to deal with politics, hurricanes, murder and mayhem? You put up cat photos. Actually, I sent this to Esther when I saw the photo of her cat because my tortoise shell (on the right) who's also tri-colored, is totally obsessed with flowers and actually tries to eat them, especially those ferns the florists use. So it means having to always put them out of her reach. But, really...how many places are out of reach for a cat?

Also seeing if I can post here since felis is having issues...

some of those things are poison to kitties and need to be up and away from us as we cant help ourselves. We just have to nibble on the greens...

Mom loves your blog...

Aloha

Rory,
Absolutely lovely cats!!
My boy cat also loves eating grass and flowers.
It helps him to get rid of the furballs.

Gorgegous cats! My son's cat likes to eat my houseplants, especially the asparagus fern and there is no place that is out of her reach.

Thanks, Felis. And you're right about the cats eating greens. I have three others besides these two and, to varying degrees, they'll all eat grass. But this one in the picture is absolutely enthralled by any sort of flora and she'll even "pose" next to a vase of flowers almost as if she knows it will make her look more attractive.

Thanks so much, Seawitch, and I can see you're familiar with the fern-eating problem too.

Great cats! Do like cats a lot, some more than others - same with people!

Don't have a cat any more. Our darling Max dying about 5 years ago was so terrible for us that we don't want to grow to love another. We brought him back from Africa, where we had brought him up from a very small foundling. He was special.

Lovely to see yours!

BTW, Esther - have posted tile picture on my blog. You said you loved tiles!

Rockmother, Thanks so much. What a shame about losing a cat that was so special to you. I understand why it might make you feel you'd rather not get attached to another one. I had one cat for 16 years and after she died, I didn't get another cat. In fact, I wasn't even looking for a cat, but these two were six-week old strays...and sometimes it can be really tough to resist kittens.

Put up a cat photo, take our minds off our troubles and the troubles of the world.

These babies are beautiful! But Hokule is right about some bouquet elements being dangerous. Once one of my cats ate the fake grass in an Easter basket, even though the basket should've been well out of her reach. It wasn't, but I still don't know exactly how she got to that plastic grass. Talk about a mess at her rear end! I was lucky that she didn't have some real problems with a blockage. After that incident, I made sure that plastic was not available and gave up altogether on Easter baskets and Christmas tinsel.

Regular grass is fine, of course, for all kitties. One can buy little planters of those just for cats so as to help control fur balls.

Rory,
I have four cats, ranging in age from 17 to 4. How did I acquire all these lovely pets? Like you, I couldn't resist kittens that need homes.

AOW, thanks very much and I nearly had a similar experience to yours when I caught the "flower child" nibbling on what looked like blades of grass in a silk floral arrangement. Fortunately, I got to her before there were any disastrous consequences. Also we do buy the cat grass from the pet store and, of course, she's always the first one at it. And good for you for adopting cats that needed homes, because there are just so many of them.

You know, my grass eater HATES the grass in a pot from the grocery store. Go figure.

rockmother -- saw it! beeeee-utiful!

Rory's torties! They're gorgeous. Only fools and mean-spirited creeps don't appreciate how wonderful our animal friends are.

Patrick, thanks so much. I'm glad you like them and I certainly agree with you about people who think animals have no value. I think that after all the tragedies resulting from the hurricanes, it's become obvious that peoples' pets are so important to them that, in some cases, they're willing to give up their lives if it means being separated from them. And the ones who are lucky enough to be reunited with their pets will find that the animals will play a big part in their healing process.
