Cats Belonging to Others

Long before we had Olive,



other people owned cats and I visited them with great glee, living vicariously through the perceived happiness of their owners. Two years into life with our three-legged wonder, I balance puke on the carpet with nose kisses, and the way she grinds bugs into the floor, then scoops them into her mouth and eats them.  (As a result, we don’t have a bug problem.) #noregrets

Here are some other people’s cats– imagine their joy!


from DAVE

Sent to me in response to sad news, JFKat (aka The Biggest Cat in the World) is here for cheer and kindness.

My Baltimore soul sister sent me this little photo-montage of Tsi-Shi & Co. when I was last at the ancestral home of Jake and Iggs, visiting zee Madre and zee Padre, scooping Jake from his river/Bay adventure. All of the good things.




from ERIN

ENORMOUS CAT, fantastic sea-star. Mufasa, king of the desert.




And, I’m not sure if I blogged this incredible picture before, but even if I did it’s worth revisiting. Mufasa guarding our dear Babci on her venture out west.

Mufasa and Babci




That former roommate of mine recently traveled across the country with her furry friend, who appears to be lovely but camera shy.




from KAT

And the grand finale, from an email appropriately titled, “The Cats of Kat’s Life”.

About bearicaquinn

Smallish, smushy in the sad parts, certainly destined for cat-lady-dom. Enjoys boats, bikes, black coffee, pug faces, sourdough bread, the morning when you have slept long enough, beards, mountainsides, art, rooftops, etc. Will continue to live in things that are interestingly shaped. So octopus.
