Patiently awaiting


Tomentosa sits atop his favorite vantage point, patiently waiting for his nightly cue to run to the barn for dinner. If one must wait, doing it patiently, with such regal posture as this seems a worthy goal.

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 ~
