Easy Like Sunday

After yesterday's post, I thought I should do different sort of Flashback.  More my memories than The Mews...  

This can't even include the 2 Siamese females we had has children or the series of grey tabby females I had in apartments.  I just don't have digital pictures of them I can find at the moment.  But my entire life (except while in a college dorm) has had cats in it (Ralph, Sport-Sport, and Ballou).  So I thought I would reflect on that with what pictures I could find...

Mischief, Jeremy, and Tinkerbelle from about 1984.  Jeremy (the big guy in the center) was my parent's cat via the youngest sister.  Tinkerebelle (right) was an adoptee from the older of the 2 sisters (she clawed badly so I took her in).  Mischief (left) was mine.  She died in her sleep about age 12 while I was at work.


Tinkerbelle came with me to our first (and only) house.  It was just me and her.  She stayed out at night a lot.  The neighbor lady once mentioned that she would often see trotting out of the field across the street and curling up on the front door steps just before I arrived home from work.

One day in Summer 1999, she never returned.  I wandered the neighborhood calling at various times, but never found a body or heard a mew.

But I had Skeeter and LC then (1992 and 93).  Skeeter loved me and LC loved Skeeter.  I can't find the "good" picture of them together.  But here is Skeeter...


And one of LC...

You know Ayla, Iza, Marley, Laz and Lori.  Dear housemates, friends, and companions...


That's a real picture, BTW...

As is this...

All that life with the cats...  Amazing.  I can't imagine it being otherwise...  

And it isn't done yet.
