Barbie when she was having trouble kicking the bottle
I have soooo many pictures of the cats we rescue that I decided I might start using them in this post for those of us who love our cats. Who knows, maybe I'll become a professional pet photographer.
Ah, come on Steve, a cat is cat and a black lab looks like all the rest. Not if that pet is your companion, your friend, your family.
We feed and care for a lot of semi-feral cats and strange as it may seem, I know most of them. Not all have names (and they certainly would not admit it if they knew) but I can see little differences in their appearance the way they at, or follow me around, where they sit to wait for their food, who they are friends with and who are mortal enemies.
We are able to tell even more about the cats we have had to rescue indoors with our intense care unit (an extra bathroom). The two in these pictures are Dusty and Little B. Dusty came in with Graham, and Snowflake. Snowflake did not make it because of birth abnormalities. Dusty's personality sets him apart from the others, even though he is easy to identify visually. He is a lover, but mischievous and he loves to take flying leaps at us when we least expect it. Yeee-ouch.
Little B is a lover also and does not understand yet that there are times when we just can't give him the attention he wants. He will rub circles around our feet as we walk and think he might be hungry, we go to the food bowls. Nope, he wants loving but he also wants it HIS way. Occasionally he wants to be held but as he grows older, he wants the petting to be with all four paws on the ground.
I would bet any pet lover who reads this can share the little things that make their companion special. You could probably show them five pets of the same breed, color, weight and age and within seconds, they could tell you which one is theirs by the way they walk, interact (or not) or something else that is a "tell".
