Fresh Ping photos from today!
The purple flowers are from Edgar’s Attic (right now there’s a 10% off sale in case you or your kitties are craving some super yummy and durable catnip toys). After nuzzling and chomping the flower, Ping likes to use it as a paw pillow and sometimes a head pillow.
I’m still having trouble making his mane less greasy without giving him an actual water bath. Kitty wipes help a little bit, but Ping needs something more.
Later in the week that I visited Foxy, things finally warmed up enough to open the windows, for the first time in ages. It was in the 50s! That was a very exciting day for the kittehs, a miscellaneous bunch of whom are assembled below.
Valdo is a sweet and handsome kitty who came from the same place as Nico. He likes to sing. He has a little cravat and a white belly and white armpit hair, which from the right angles looks kind of silly. But from this angle he looks thoroughly dignified:
Nico has been a Fox Kitty for months, more than a year by now. He started out as a lodger and his stay kept getting protracted until now he seems like a permanent fixture. I’ll miss him when he moves out this summer. He is one of the largest and handsomest kittehs I have ever met. He is snuggly too but so easily upset that it is hard to know just how long to pet him. I would beg him for the privilege of cuddles, and often but not always he would grant my wishes, at least for a while.
I only took a few photos when I visited Foxy in Fox Town in April. I didn’t even get one of each kitteh!
He was the runt of the litter but he has grown to be the roundest of the bunch. He has a really long tail that he wags back and forth when he is happy, which is often. You can’t see any of that in this photo, and you can only get a dim idea of his shape. Also, he is a happy friendly kitty and his expression in the photo is not typical.
More Miaoly Action Photography. What we really need is video of Sprockers zooming up and down the stairs, but this is a step in the right direction, even though a couple of the photos are really blurry.
This is one of my few attempts at Miao Action Photography. The Miao kitties are lazy and so am I, which is why we gravitate towards portraits and napping photos.
This Miaoling altercation started out with Chun on the kitty condo, which he calls his tabouret, watching the backyard on one of the few days we’ve had where it was warm enough to have windows open.
Actually, it started with Sprocket batting at Chun’s tail while Chun tried to watch birdies and squirrels in the backyard, but then they both settled down, or seemed to. Except no one holds a grudge like Chun. So as soon as Sprocket got all comfy in Bean Bag Pose, Chun took advantage of his greater height and started to bop poor baby Sprock.
If Sprocket had a tail long enough for Chun to nibble, I am sure that he would not object to Chun nibbling his tail. Chun is always taking advantage of his greater height. Sprocket’s short little sprocketty legs don’t stand a chance against Chun’s long Siameezey legs.
Am I the only one who thinks Chun should let his little brother win?
