Reminds me of my boss looking over my shoulder


Great shot; looks like Wilfred Brimley, the actor.

Except that it looks more like he checks YOUR blood sugar and checks it often.

(2010) a free spirit on the roofscape somewhere in Santorini....

For some reason, Santorini cat photos are my favorite.

This is Sam, who passed almost two years ago, at the age of 17 1/2. RIP little buddy, we miss you

And this is Willie, almost 3 years old. I adopted Willie a month after Sam passed away, and he has helped me heal from that sad event. He's a funny little boy, with mucho energy:

I can almost hear him saying, "you and whose army?!"

I still think you should sell "eef's cat's philosophy" posters/mugs/t-shirts out of cafe press or Zazzle. I still remember, "you will NOT use my pen..."

Very cute (if you don't mind the word), and I've never seen a short-hair Maine Coon. I'm still trying to upload my guys and not having much luck.

Thanks! :vbg:

Well, we don't know what else to call him! He has all the markings, softness and double coat of a Maine Coon, but no long hair! Truth is he was a stray that adopted us at a yard sale and the person owning the yard suggested we take him too! He loves everyone and lives to keep out laps and feet warm, that is when he's not bringing in live critters to let go in the house...

He sounds like the love-child of my two boys: my Maine Coon (though he was mean as spit to everyone except me), and my little barn-kitty who lives to sit on laps. Both of them fantastic mousers.

Fabbale, grazie mille! :) Che bello gatto! Leon is beautiful (and the rest of your family as well). I wish I had scanned pictures of our Sid... he used to enjoy sleeping on his back just the same way.

Thanks! I just wish he could be a little bit nicer to other people sometimes... He's something of an "attack cat".
