When we were in Australia last year, we took photos of all my daughter's animals. Among them this more than 12 years old cat. She loves to drink from the tap in the bathroom. The last two photos were taken by my Dutch daughter.

They are so cute! People say cats aren't intelligent but I think they are. In addition to being playful! One of the many sorrows my divorce cost me was leaving behind my cats and my dogs. I thought I'd better not separate them from my kids who live with their mother.

I enjoyed seeing your cat photos, but also found your profile very interesting. I'm glad that I found your blog. The photo with the grandkids (I'm assuming!) is wonderful...a handsome crew!!

Bruce said...

Beautiful cat & this quote is so true!

Dina said...

A sweet old cat and sweet pictures.
I agree with your quotation.

Cath said...

What a cute cat! She looks very healthy and young even though over 12!

I have a shot of our kitten - not yet a year old.Come see!

So adorable cats! I love the black and white color. My pop used to have 9 of them, always following him wherever he goes. :)

Snap said...

Beautiful kitty (at 12 years old ... still a kitty)! Our cats drink from the sink ... prefer running water, and have their own *glasses*!!!!!

Thank you!

Wil.........aren't cats just the most ingenious creatures? Ours is something else!

I agree with Snap, 12 is just middle aged. Most of mine lived into their 20's. They are a real commitment but so worth it. We enter their lives on their terms but that is OK.

Elizabeth said...

Such a beautiful clever cat.
Ours were fascinated by the taps too!

I like the quote reader wil - it is true that cats only choose people they like and can be quite dismissive with other people. They are never servile, like dogs can be - but i love cats for just that reason.

Happy weekend, Wil.

Leuk gezegde bovenaan, en maar al te waar. Ik ben trouwens een groot kattenliefhebber. Er is nog zo'n gezegde: Vrouwen en katten doen waar ze zin in hebben, en mannen en honden moeten zich daar maar bij neerleggen :-)

ViennaDaily said...

The quote is very true! :) Cutie cat!

Carla said...

Love this quote-she is a GREAT looking cat:)

Smart Mouth Broad said...

Very cute. I love your new banner. I really enjoy watching cats but we are dog people. MHS and both the girls are severely allergic to cats.

Carletta said...

She is beautiful! He coat just glistens and looks so furry.
My daughter's cat drinks from the tap in her bathroom but actually as it's running out. He runs there anytime he he seems someone headed that way.

My post is on my photoblog: Carletta’s Captures.

Cette jolie chatte fait jeune pour ses douze ans !Elle est assortie à mon Cachou...
La citation est très juste et me rappelle "le chat qui s'en va tout seul" de R.Kipling

Gretchen said...

Our evil Darth Mittens helps herself to our glasses of water all the time. Luckily, I saw her sneaking a drink out of mine before picking it up.

Constantinos said...

One of my cats - Agamemnon - used to drink water from the hose in the garden. AND he would only eat ...cooked food! Even moussaka left overs!

Janice Thomson said...

Cute photos - love how the tongue was caught in the one.

Cats are wonderful despite my allergies.
