Whiskers


"Cats' whiskers are so sensitive;
they can find their way through the narrowest
crack in a broken heart."

    3. Well, they only get a shave once a week, so they have some tickley prickles as the days go on!

    1. I thought that quote was so sweet...and so true! Pets are the best and accept us for who we are and nothing more.

    2. The "wildest" and most "mistreated" of all my rescues, crawled up on my stomach and laid down for a long time yesterday. Ironic that he still has trust after what he has been through.

    3. OH, that is so sweet! I'm still working on Velvet. She doesn't run when I get close but still won't let me touch her. Poor girl. She has relaxed a lot over the last three years but I still have a long way to go. Funny how she shows trust by bringing me her litters and lets me play and touch her babies but doesn't want me to touch her. She sat at my feet while I was cooking and meowed for the first time a couple of weeks ago. I'd never heard her voice before! So, there is still hope....

    1. How sweet of you to have an outdoor cat feeder! That's how I started my herd of cats...feeding them outside. Then I had heated shelters on the porch...then we installed a cat door and they just come in. haha.

    1. Eyebrows are just as long
      as they sing a meow song.

  8. Ah yes. Whiskers that tickle. Whiskers that cure a broken heart. Sounds like a country song hidden in there somewhere. HAHAHA! Maybe the guys from "Duck Dynasty" are on to something. However, my Mrs. prefers the NON-TICKLING type. So no whiskers for me. A guy has to do whatever it takes to keep the Mrs. happy. Right? Right?? (Love this picture, by the way.)

      And yes, you better keep her happy! :)

  11. Love this photo!
    Last night I had a sleeping kitten on my lap, not a little one, half grown, and totally sweet and cuddly.
    Almost forgot what that was like.

    1. Aw...that is just the best! And it's a proven fact that a cat sleeping in your lap lowers your blood pressure! (unless you're Spencer or Alex. ha.)

  14. Such a sweet picture and quote. I love Marmalade's ginger-y goodness. Did you know that the length of the whiskers across their face (i.e. far left to far right) informs them of how narrow a passage they can squeeze through? Even if the have a chubby body, they can squeeze through tight openings as long as it is the span of their whiskers! I think that is very cool.

    1. I did know that...which I think is such a cool God-given ability for them! Creation is amazing with all it's details.

  15. Marmalade appears to have usurped Slate's position as most photogenic. How I wish I could feel his magnificent thick coat! Your guys would make wonderful stars in cat food commercials. Lynne in NC

    1. Slate and Marmalade are having a little rivalry going as to who is going to be king of the beasts in this house. They tolerate each other but I see some competition as to who will sleep on our bed and who will sit in my lap. It's a little amusing! You'd think with 14, they would know that all are welcome. Besides, I keep pointing out to them that Velvet is the queen and nobody can really take her position. haha. The rivalry hasn't gotten nasty or anything, but they steer clear of each other for the most part and one will hiss at the other occasionally. lol....

    1. I'd rather have him in the middle, too, than trying to share my pillow. haha.
