  3. Oh,my doodness sakes, we got a boy kitteh cat we are crazy about his name is Miyagi or Mr. Miyagi he has a touch of white on his belly sort of he wandered crying like a banshee near Halloween several years ago, starved half to death but some meat on his bones, he would only stay in our arbivitae bushes until my hubs fetched him out of them raining like crazy..He would sleep on my chest and snore and wimper so hungry and abandoned, my hubs was crazy about him, we took to a feline clinic of all women vets who adored him, he got fixed cleaned up and has been the king of the house after our queen miss cody..They mearly tolerate each other she has the living room and he goes to his perch in one of our bedrooms and is loved on my myself and my hubs a lot..She only like for me to rub her belly miss cody a grey beauty which was our only childs cat she rescued from a vets office after she inquired about her when she walked by Miss Cody nearly broke the glass when she entered her Vet practice she jumped on her and never left her lap & she adopted her and cared for her until she went to NYC which we took her in..I adore cats, we lost two of our children one week apart in july 2013..I nearly lost my mind, I nursed both kittens to good health using a dropper and special milk and food Mr. bailey boy lived for nearly 20 years and Miss sophie for 19 they must have wanted to cross the rainbow bridge as they laid down after wimpering a little on white hot days and went, I was crushed, miss cody knew what was up, and so did mr. Miyagi they acted strange for two weeks but it does happen..Your cat Velvet looks regal, enjoy your kitty cat, love your blog and photos and your blogging words, ciao!

  4. Betsy, your cat photos are killing me! Your yard and house seem like a wonderland to me. I've lost count of all your fur children. You may be rivaling the gang at Ernest Hemingway's estate in The Keys. I take it Rocky has never returned. Lynne in NC

    1. I almost lost count myself the other day when I said I had 16. Then I went to count and couldn't come up with the 16th one! I think I had already counted Rocky as mine that time I fed him. But he never came back! I'm sad about that...he was a handsome guy with such sweet eyes. I wonder if I'm distantly related to Mr. Hemingway. lol....

    1. I want to pet her! She was snuggled up to Tiger last night on the table and I took a few pictures. Tiger is relaxed and has the look of fight-or-flight in her eyes. Poor thing.

  10. What a lovely picture of a picket fence, very English cottage style. I think every home should have one.

  12. What a wonderful group of feline friends you have.
    I once had a black cat named Shadow but I used to call him Shadrach instead.

    1. PS. I like your fence too. It's pretty cool.
      I tried to have a fence once but it just didn't happen.

    2. Shadrach....because he looked like he'd been in the firey furnace? haha.

      I remember when you painted a picket fence on your inside walls!

      Delete
    3. Shadrach, because it started with Shad and I thought of it after he'd already been named. (I'm slow like that.) He was a sweet kitty. Poor boy got sick and we lost him young.

      Sometimes I wish I'd kept that fence on my walls and then I remember how much I love it like it is now.

  15. I really like your cat. It all works for the cat to sit t here with the great backyard fence. Cats seem to know how to pose in a perfect place to get their picture taken.

  17. she is gorgeous. it is tough to get a good shot of a black dog or kitty. Those kitties are lucky to have such a pretty yard
    to hang out in. Guess that is why they are there, that and the food and nice lady.

    1. haha...you might have a point there! Nugget, our black rabbit, is the worst to get a good picture! His eyes are black, too, so sometimes there isn't any definition to his face...just an outline of his body!

  18. Love the photo of Velvet framed against the trees and fence . . . . :)
