Weekly Pet Share and Sunday Selfies

You might recognize this little guy. I used his picture as a backdrop for a quote I posted for Nurturing Thursday a couple of weeks ago.  He’s very shy but he now waits patiently almost every morning for me to bring him his breakfast.  He still doesn’t let me get near him.  I’ve tried just standing by my front door to photograph him up close but he won’t come up on the wall if I remain outside.  It’s so adorable the way he just peeks over the edge of the wall to make sure I’m “gone” before jumping up to eat.  The second photo and the video were taken while I was inside my house so the quality is not the best.  All were taken with my iPhone5.

I am greeted with this adorable face almost every morning!Shy Guy

And every morning, it’s the same routine. I’m required to leave the area and he makes sure I’m gone by peeking over the wall.Peeking Cat

Then when the coast is clear (he can’t see me anymore), it’s time to eat!

Michelle’s Weekly Pet Share #75; Wordless Wednesday

Whew! Lots of sharing today. I’ve been so busy I’ve fallen behind in my posting. So I’m playing a little bit of catch up today.

The picture is of Maggie shortly after her spay. You can see the gray area on her tummy where she was shaved. The photo, as you can see from the original, was not the best quality. So that I wouldn’t have to just file it away, I decided to try something fun and different with it.

Ye olde neighborhood cat house!

It’s true. I run a cat house. Pictured are two that I just happened to catch as I drove in the driveway (ergo, the grainy quality on an iPhone5 zoom!). I have seven indoor cats that I call my own and cannot add to that number now that hubby has been diagnosed as allergic. There are at least seven (five black and two tuxedo) cats/kittens outside who come for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks and bedtime. They are not mine per se. I can’t say they are feral as they have come to allow me to pet them and, a few of them, allow me to pick them up. Yes, I know, I’ve been told I need help. But, you see, they need help more than I do!

There are several challenges this past week involving pets. This is a picture of my first Great Dane, Caesar (1970-72). Sadly he died young. He was fabulous and I still miss him.

Weekly Pet Challenge Wk #61

For Michelle’s challenge this week, I’ve got something a little different. I can’t say it’s a pet but it does come fairly often for a late dinner and helps itself to the cat food for the strays. This little critter may not be a cat but it is definitely a stray. I think it’s so cute. It doesn’t try to run away as quickly now when it sees me. I suppose it’s getting a bit used to my voice even if I don’t see it that often. Sorry the pictures are a bit fuzzy. The zoom on the iPhone isn’t the best. It tends to make things a bit grainy. But for some reason this little critter didn’t want me to try to get too close!

I can wait. I don’t mind sharing cause I know there will be plenty. Also, I’m looking for my inside forever home if you want a cuddly kitty.
