Gratuitous Cat Pictures
La Bellette Rouge has asked for some cat photos. Well, I could link to some past blog posts (and probably will anyway), but it would be more fun to post some pictures of my little darlings. This one is the original post, then there's this one and let's not forget this!
This one is Ghost, who is ancient (18):
This one is Smudge. He's 9, not young but still going strong:
In looking through previous cat posts, I realized that it's been about a month since Smudge injured his tail. Ghost's surgery was in March. It's been a big year for vet bills!
I've had cats as long as I can remember, starting with the Jinx dynasty of my childhood. Several orange tomcats in a row, all with the same name. Then, the "blue" series, which actually means the animal is gray. I started with with Anastasia, then Oz, Ghost, Troubles, and Smudge. Smudge, though mostly white, has gray accents on his head and was almost named Mikhail Gorbachev as a result.
