Cat blogging, with bad photos

Mithrandir is a four-year-old declawed feral who has come a long way from being the fearful, shadowy cat we never see. The funny thing about Mith is that he's huge; he's a 23 pounder and not chubby but rather lanky, so big that when you pick him up bits of him gangle over your arms in all directions. And he's absolutely the sweetest, shyest cat I've ever lived with.

He's also very dapper, being the proud owner of a slate-grey velvet tuxedo, which he accents with a white goatee and spats. Originally, the intent was to name him Shakespeare (since the slightly older boy cat, his constant companion, and a tiny little eight pound black tuxedo one of our friends calls The Lap Remora, is Marlowe {the Fearless [And Snuggly]}) but it didn't stick, and thus he became The Grey Stray.

Because we can't resist a painful pun.

He's a big enough cat that, when we adopted him, we were told he was seven to ten months.

It turned out that he was closer to three or four months. And he just kept growing. And growing. And growing.

Mmm. Seafood!

Dude, did you know you have your hand up a lobster's hiney?

Next step, balrogs. He's working up.


What a beautiful kitty!!!


Hope you have a wonderful 2006!!!
!! He's a *much* larger version of my 8 lb Tess! He's a beauty alright :)
Oh, he is lovely. :)
LOVE "Lap Remora" - we have a few of those, here. And they bring their own oceans with them, too! They drool. Good lord, how they drool. The valves are stuck in the Open position, they drool that much.

The cat in this avatar is Lothendil, who is 17-ish, with a severe heart murmur, enough that she has never been spayed, because there was a very strong chance that she'd never have woken up from the anasthesia. She is a lap remora. With the claws that attach and Do Not Let Go™.

Mith could TOTALLY take a balrog.
OMG, look at the expression in that second pic. ::scritches kitty::
Those are, actually, ridiculously cute pictures.

(Unrelatedly: Happy New Year!)
And you too!
Handsome fellow!
Cute cat!

But what's the Two-face box?
Oooooh, SHINY!

I want a Bengal... *sniff*
Too cute!

When I adopted Inky, the humane society had him listed as an adult cat. Imagine my surprise, when I took him in to the vet and they told me he was "probably 6 months old". "Will he get bigger?" was my question, not having ever raised a cat from it's youth. D'oh! He's now pretty darn huge-- I like to say he grew into his polydactyl paws and large floopy tail. Shiny black medium length fur, bright eyes, mischievous. He's over 10 years old now and still a kitten. My domestic panther. Lanky and just plain huge.

My Marlowe is the cat I'm with in this icon, he's older than Inky and smaller, but still wins all their battles. Sweetest cat ever.
*g* Our Marlowe is the black one lording it over his cringing--or snoozing--subjects in this icon.

Yay, cats.

(Yours is very fluffy)
My grandmother's upstairs neighbor has a tiny, gorgeous, half-grown kitten. VERY fluffy. Like, looooooooong poufy tufts of hair. More like a Furby than an Afghan hound (I'm not familiar with non-shorthair cats, much). Said fluff is chalky, matte white -- but his ears and nose are dark brown. He's a chocolate-point Persian mix or something.

UNBEARABLY cute. :->
Ahahahaha! That's such a "What do you expect me to do with this shit, idiot! Geezus! What I have to endure form these stupid Big People!" look.

Happy New Year from Milli and Saki to Mithrandir, Marlowe, and the spy kitties!
First and foremost - Happy New Year and nothing but hope for you in 2006 on the writing front and otherwise.

Secondly - you SO nailed the caption for that photo! Priceless!
What a sweet boy! I love the expression on his face in the second picture. Cats and camera phones are much fun.
Phew, large cat! That's what I'm expecting for my cat Legolas. I inherited him when he was about 5 months old and he was about the same size as my (then) one year old tabby. It's been just two months and he's a good two inches taller and still growing.
