Bodie on my bed  
Just because I haven't posted any pics of him for a good while, and he's grown into such a handsome little stud-muffin, and he looked so pleased with himself!


Also pics of my grand old lady, Saavik Crystal Singer, who at 15 is the oldest of my cats, and also the smallest. It's funny to watch her sometimes; she's always been a bit timid and one to run from confrontation with my other cats, but she refuses to take any crap from Bodie. He mock-bites her and tries to entice her into a game, but in reply he gets a slap in the face. It's hilarious. He's three times her size and could easily take her on but he beats a hasty retreat.


I like this photo of her, with her coat backlit by the sun. Two more:

A handsome lad indeed and with that near smirk it seems his name was rather well chosen. :D

Also, your grand old lady is looking rather grand indeed.

He IS well-named; loves his food, and is as solid as a brick. Besides which, he ran away to sea when he was 14 (well, in fact he was found at the docks when he was three weeks old; still way too young to leave home and seek adventure.)

Kissy is soft and silky, she's a pretty little thing.

Didn't see Harry :-(. I was going with my son, who's been flying in and out of the state for work lately. He flew in from WA on Friday night and has to be back tomorrow, but he couldn't get a flight tomorrow morning that would get him there in time so he had to leave this afternoon instead. If he can't make it next weekend I'll go by myself.

OMG!! Your Bodie does look just so pleased with himself and very comfortable. Bet you didn't have the heart to move him.

Your grand old lady is gorgeous, although she doesn't look very pleased with you in the second one. Probably because she didn't have time to pose properly. *g*

I never have the heart to move him. It took a long time before he felt secure enough to sleep on my bed and he's welcome to stay there as long as he likes.

That second photo of Kissy - she didn't like the flash. She normally has a really sweet expression but the flash put her off a bit. The others were taken without it.

Lovely photos of Bodie and Crissie .... I was thinking of her the other day, actually, and wondering how she was. :) Yep, am still alive *barely* and will be in touch shortly (due to no phone/internet this weekend) .... :(

No phone/internet?? Aaargh.... was bad enough that LJ was down for most of last week.
I can't remember if Crissie was born in 94 or 95; I'll have to pull her papers out and check. She's still rocking around like a kitten, and was chasing a sparkle ball around the house earlier. I don't think she's realised yet that she's a grown-up.

Got the problem fixed, I hope - the line was once again stuffed and I had to replace it ... then the plugs were the wrong size so now I have to play "fiddles" when I want to get the 'net. :(

Been a long, long time and I'm so pleased to hear how she's doing too. No, they don't realise sometimes that they are Grown.Up.Kittehs do they (same with FLB, of course, and Mindy, The Kitteh From Hell ... who sends you headbutts tonight). :)

Oh, he's absolutely gorgeous. And he looks so smug and pleased with himself, just like Bodie. I bet he's a real charmer, too!

He IS a charmer, when he's not nibbling my fingers. He's a lovely boy really.

Merlin likes to nip my toes!

Aren't they funny, the things they do. Bodie was a rescue kitty who was very shy and distrustful of people; he was in care from the time he was three weeks old until I adopted him when he was about three months old. He's nearly two years old now and he's only just come right out of his shell in the last six or seven months. For a long time I couldn't pick him up without being bitten (no drama, I could leave him on the floor!) but he's got over that for the most part. Still occasionally grabs my arm and has a fang though.

Well, it sounds like you've done a great job with him. He's lucky to have found such a loving home.

I reckon I'm the lucky one, he brings me so much joy.

I know what you mean. Merlin's been keeping me sane over the past few days with all the stuff that has been happening to me. He cuddles up to me when I cry.

I'd probably prefer having his namesake on my bed but he's off with Doyle so I'll settle for my dear little cat.
