And, for all you nonbelievers, a rare photo of Domino munching Casa de Los Gatos-supplied kibble on the neighbour's deck while Bandicoot watches lazily and Boca glowers in the background. Boca is the neighbours' cat, a rescue Manx found at a garbage dump up North. The owner of the dump had a big ol' Alsatian who was planning a Bocaite snack, when the guy snatched the little kitten from the jaws of certain death and handed her to the neighbours, saying, "If you don't take her, mah dawg's gonna eat her, fershure." She rode home in the truck and has since taken many road trips, sitting on A's lap while I drives. Never knew a cat who enjoyed car trips before.

Domino's a sweetheart, with three white spots on his belly, which is how he got his name. Tried to turn him into an indoor cat, but he's just too feral. He would sit in the window, staring out, and cry for hours, very softly (he squeaks, rather than meowing), and if any human came close, he would put his head down, shut his eyes, and shiver all over. So he lives outside, and is very happy with that arrangement, visiting various houses for a nibble. We try to keep him supplied with whatever he needs, including the (very) occasional visit to the vet.

Don't feel bad if you can't see Boca. She's exceedingly well-camouflaged!!

And to make up for the lack of Caturday posts, here's another:

This is Gojira's "Whadefuck you lookin' at, Willis?" expression. Such a pretty little princess! And I do love holding her black-purple cold little pawpads.

Once I clicked on the picture to enlarge it, I finally found Boca -- a black lump with eyes hiding in the coal scuttle(?) behind Bandicoot.

Bandicoot -- mostly I see the plushy belly when you've got him lazing on a bed. Fun to see his beautiful coat with sunlight on it.

And Domino is dining on beautifully colorful pottery bowl. Only the best fancy china for your babies?

Gojira -- what a gorgeous shot! I'm going to try to get a photo of my favorite black kitty - Sir Chumley of Amherst - sitting on a backdrop of fabulous color - maybe we'll finally get a great photo of him. He usually disappears into the background.

Yes, that's Bocita! Actually, the pottery bowl is my neighbour's. Domino likes to hang out on their deck, so we have a deal with them. We supply high-quality kibble, and they put it out for him. Works out perfectly because Miss Boca has a delicate digestive system and can't eat Domino's kibble, and Domino doesn't like her kibble. And my neighbour made that bowl herself. Lucky Domino!
