Catching up with Yuri

It’s been about four months since I posted any pics of our cat Yuri, so thought I’d bring you up to date. Yuri has settled down a lot and seems to be truly at home now. He still flies up and down the stairs (scarily fast) but he patiently and quietly waits outside our bedroom door every morning. The only time he “whines” is when he’s ready to eat. I’ve heard of cats who meow all day long, basically driving their owners insane. šŸ˜‰

Here’s what he’s been up to…



My stepdaughter moved into a place of her own this summer, and now Yuri loves to hang out on her bed. I love his pink nose.


I bought Yuri some really cool toys (“Cats love them!”) from Amazon and he ignored them completely. Like a toddler, he prefers the box they came in. Yuri is two after all. He pretends there’s some kind of prey in there and jumps on top of the box. Luckily, a friend who has a cat was able to use the toys. Yuri only wants to chase a mouse on a fishing pole, or a laser pointer. He has the mouse in his mouth here.


Bought Yuri a collar with his name and our phone number on it and he was not happy. It took him two weeks, but he got it off. Luckily, Yuri doesn’t try to escape when we open doors. I’ll be trying the collar again soon.


I also love Yuri’s giant paws. Siberians have them for better running and jumping in the snow. He’s incredibly agile and can easily jump from a crouched position to high places in the house. No snow in the forecast here, but he’s very surefooted.


The light was hitting Yuri just right one day. I think he looks a little, well, demonic here. šŸ™‚
I’m still getting used to the way he stares at me. So different from dogs!


While doing laundry one day I put two jackets on a chair in the foyer temporarily. There was just enough time for Yuri to slip between them. I’m so glad he stayed still for this shot. These were all taken with the iPhone or the iPad…haven’t gotten around to introducing the big camera yet.

Great weekend, everyone!

  6. Yuri, the most handsome cat you got, Carol. We, meaning Moshu my three legged cat and me know exactly what you and Yuri are talking about. Enjoy your sweet feline.

    He’s such a lovely cat. I love it when mine looks into my eyes. The pink nose is so cute. And the fur and eyes so beautiful. It’s funny how they choose their toys. My cats like very different things. She runs after balls but he would never do that. Or go into a buxom while she likes it.
