No Cats Allowed - The Kracker Cat Blog
Saturday December 5th, 2009 at 05:39 PMI heard a knock upon my door the other evening and opened it to find two Mormon missionaries standing upon the porch. So I invited them in to meet the cats. Here they are, the young Elder Smith and the young Elder Wadsworth, posing with Royce, who is very old, even though he is younger than they. Muzzy comes to get in the picture. He terrifies the missionaries, so I have to take him to the garage. Martigny comes to bless them with her presence. The missionaries wanted to baptize the two cats,...
Wry, Royce and cheese - the love story between the orange cat and the baby-turned-toddler-turned-little boy continues
Wednesday November 25th, 2009 at 02:44 PMWry grows ever more articulate. In the evening, I point my camera towards him and he suddenly shouts, "Cheese!" Another word in his vocabulary! But where did he pick it up from? I never tell anyone to say cheese. To do so would be to violate my photographic technique. It must have happened at day care. At dare care, he gets his picture taken every day for the class on-line newsletter. The picture taker must have told him to say, "cheese!" Wry and Royce. Wry gives Royce a smooch. After the... Thursday November 12th, 2009 at 12:37 PMCharlie understands cats and they understand him. Here he is with Royce, both observing the same thing. Royce needed a good brushing. Charlie gave it to him. A bit later, little Wry came along, carrying socks. Little Wry raises the socks into the air. What do you think he is thinking? What will happen next? Good grief! Royce is wearing socks! Royce goes to Tryskuit. Royce and Tryskuit. Royce relaxes by himself for awhile. Where is Charlie? Why, Charlie is with Jim! Saturday October 24th, 2009 at 05:10 PMHere is Nabysko with Zed - the latest addition to the Kracker Cats. You will recall that Bryce, Nabysko's boyrfriend, is allergic to cats. That's why they went so long without a cat. But finally they got Juniper and, despite a bit of extra suffering, Bryce wanted them to have two cats. Bryce liked Jim so much that he wanted that cat to be black. So, recently, they were down in Homer and they came up with this black kitten, Zed. They bought a big, fancy, air cleaner that is going all the time.... Wednesday October 14th, 2009 at 03:36 PMI hate to say it, but Royce is growing very old and ever more feeble. I don't know how much time we have left with him. Yesterday, Sunflower wondered if we should dig a hole in the backyard before freezeup. That could be any day now. Last year, it had happened by now. It is very hard to dig a grave back there, once the ground has frozen. Still, I don't think we will dig that hole now. Perhaps Royce can make it through another winter. I hope so. I think so. I'm not sure. Of course, we are... Monday October 5th, 2009 at 07:06 PMLittle Wry, Royce and Toast Ed were all snug and warm on the couch, enjoying each other's company. Little Wry was overcome with an innocent, sweet, expression. This is when a toddler is at his most dangerous. Suddenly, little Wry jumps up and kicks Dad... well, you know. Dad screams. Now little Wry drops down with his knee. Royce is worried, but holds his ground. Wry is very pleased. Royce ponders his own safety. Toast Ed squeaks out a few high notes.
I see a white cat as I walk past the house where the chicken crossed the road and the rooster got shot and the little dog nearly killed the rabbit
Wednesday September 16th, 2009 at 09:06 AMYes, many things involving animals seem to happen at this house. And today, I walked by and saw this cat chatting with these goats. The goats are a little hard to see, but they are there, on the deck, peeking out from behind the fence. Tuesday September 1st, 2009 at 06:31 PMHeidi, I took these pictures of Pistol-Yero just for you. Here he is, on the bed where he sleeps with Jim and me (and when Sunflower heals, her, too). He ponders my lens. He reaches out to touch it. I pull it away before he can. Jimmy grooms Pistol-Yero, Pistol-Yero grooms Jimmy. Pistol-Yero and I, in my office. To anyone else who may stop by, I did this for Heidi because she made a special request in a comment that she made on my last post.
