He certainly is a handsome boy with a regal mane...and it doesn't look like he misses dinner very often.
What a beautiful boy! He looks a bit like a lion to me, with that incredible mane around his neck! :-)
What a kingly cat! He is allowing you to serve him. Just like my cat!
Tormentosa? That's hysterical! What a great name for a cat. Hope you fed him as soon as possible. He looks like he's hungry....This is a really good photo.
Ah! A handsome cat. Just what I needed to see first thing this morning :-)
Have you ever read "Platero and I" by Juan Ramon Jimenez? It's about a donkey. Look it up on Amazon. Highly recommended for any animal lover but donkeys especially.
What a beautiful cat. He looks as if he is king of all he sees and you are his humble and devoted servent.
Thanks, all. Named after the plant Tomentosa, Tommy [or Tomers as I call him] came to us as about a one year old. He was so shy and timid, low in the pecking order. He's a good hunter. His fur gets so matted in the winter rains though, but he usually lets me pull or cut the worst mats out. I often wonder if he was related to Pussytoes [who I sorely miss!!!!Especially when I worked in the veggie garden]. Anyway, he's a sweetheart.
I love the sense of entitlement that cats have. And they are entirely entitled to it, especially this beauty. (ChanofDo, Platero and I is one of my favorite books; lovely to see it mentioned here.)
Well put Tai...of course, wait a minute...did Puck write that or did you? So you know Platero too? I tol Chan I knew of the book and had wanted to read it, but had not because I was afraid it might flavor my head too much while I write my masterpiece. But she said she is sending ame a paragraph from it to entice me, the little vixen.
Thank you for reading! The farm and my art/writing keep me hopping, so might not respond immediately. Thank you for understanding. ~Katherine & Apifera ~
