Cats in Tanks


Feeling uninspired and short of time. This should indicate my cats’ mood when I’m not to bed earlier. Goodnight, and good morning.

 

Jigglypuff & the Guinea Pigs


This last year has been trying for all of us, but there’s a bright spot in the clouds. Fellow blogger and friend Kate Campbell has three friends to help get her through the day: Mister Eccles’ friend Jigglypuff, with her Guinea pig pals May Gibbs and Beatrix Potter. As well as helping out around the house and ‘assisting’ in Kate’s online activity, as I suspect Mr. Eccles may do with mine (looks back to glare suspiciously at Mr. Eccles…), the girls like to play games, though my mere monkey intellect fails to grasp the intricacies of such subtle sport. What plans might the girls be up to at this hour? Taking over the world, perhaps? The photo collage below and other images are hosted here: http://muzy.com/l/6fv2d49l. I’ll let Kate put things in her own words:

rfnr0wbchvfc5b385jjbvsg5nqf0qt1aJigglypuff is a calico (which we call tortoiseshell here in Australia. She was originally a country cat, but now she is semi-rural/not-quite-city cat. She is 12 years old. She is named after the Pokemon of the same name. May Gibbs is the chocolate brown guinea pig and Beatrix Potter is the tortoiseshell one. They are both short-haired and they are both 1 year old. They love eating a variety of fruit and vegetables every day. They were named after two of my favourite children’s writers.

They are all skeptics, except they believe in unicorns.

Thanks for guesting us.

Love Kate & the girls

Rest easy, old Gumbyman…


Well, I kind of saw this coming, but our oldest cat, officially named Nedaulec, better known as Gumbyman, was put to sleep this last Saturday morning in a final act of release from further suffering from his many infirmities, including renal failure at his advanced age.

Gumby was our last surviving Katrina refugee, found in a kennel in New Orleans abandoned with some of his ‘lady friends.’ Neutered only two weeks before we got him from an animal rescue service, he spent many good years with us in a life of relative peace and relaxation.

We’ll always remember him as a really sweet old fella with his grouch-face and his abundantly fluffy tail, the favorite plaything of Mr. Eccles…

You’re gone, ‘old man,’ but hardly forgotten…

Here are some of his best moments…
