Any Peeping Tom with eyes like that can look at me!

Oh, I luvz teh floofy cat fohtoz!  I've been trying to get a good pic of Freddie, but she's black all over, and still not completely used to us, (we adopted her in October) so it's rawtherrr difficult.  And the only time she holds still is when she has her face in the kibble bowl.

But I'll keep trying.

@Loren: Have you noticed that cats just know when their humans need some extra comforting? I can't count how many times when I've been depressed or upset about something, and one of my cats will stick to me like glue, lick my face (if I'm crying...been a long time since I've done that!), or just cuddle next to me no matter where I am.

Even other people's cats will do that.  I was cat-sitting over in Hollywood the week my father died, and Ivan (the Cat) followed me everywhere, watched TV with me, read over my shoulder, and slept under the covers with me.  He'd never done anything like that before. He was usually aloof...I was supposed to be his servant. Surprised the *bleep* outta me.  And it did help.

Loren, your 14-pound fluffy looks so much like my neighbor's peeping Tom:  I call Boots that because he's always peering in our windows, lol. And sk8eycat, I love the cute public service announcement. ;)

Comment by Loren Miller on January 20, 2014 at 6:30am

Well, two nights ago as I was flopped out in bed, I felt something take up residence on my chest for a while, to be more accurate, a rather fluffy, 14-pound something!

I should mention ... he likes pet-pets ALL OVER.

Comment by sk8eycat on January 20, 2014 at 2:35am

Pumpkin sez he likes tummy rubs better, so that's what I'll give him when he gets under the covers and rolls on his back.  He's kinda weird, but I've loved him for 15 years now.  Purrs like an outboard motor.

Comment by sk8eycat on January 19, 2014 at 11:28pm

Loren, while Pumpkin was cuddled next to me under the covers this morning, he said to send you this especially from him:

{{{{{{{{{PurrrrrLorenPurrrr}}}}}}}}  Repeat as needed.

I'm also sending this to everyone who needs some unconditional warmth and love.  That's ALL of us!

Oh, Loren,,,NOHHHHH!  I dunno what to say.  I still miss poor old Jerry Cat, and it's been almost a year.  Pumpkin has become closer to me since Jerry left us, but it's not the same.  Each one is a unique individual...

Comment by Pixy Giggles on January 12, 2014 at 5:12pm

Loren, I'm so sorry to hear about Munchkin and Boo-kitty. Coincidentally, yours is the second story like this have heard in the past few months. I don't if you're familiar with The Blog of Otis (it was one of the first blogs I followed after beginning my own blog on WordPress); but even I cried over the loss of two of their cats, Leader Otis: Spring 2006 – October 28, 2013 and We Have Lost Mama Cat, about a month later. The loss of a pet is never an easy process. You have my deepest condolences.

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 12, 2014 at 5:04pm

Loren, such sad news. Yes, you are damned lucky to have loved ones, human and feline, to comfort you. At the same time, your losses weigh heavy on you. Thinking of you my dear friend.
