Sorry I’ve been MIA this summer. A lot going on, but hopefully things will settle down soon. I want to thank all the new followers for joining in. And thanks to my longtime readers who’ve hung in there with me. I won’t be able to return “Likes” at this time, but I’ll do my best to visit your blogs.
Today I took a look at my stats and was surprised to see that the posts on my cat Yuri have kind of taken off. Who knew? A lot of cat lovers out there. 🙂
So here are some shots taken of the big guy in our guest room, which he has appropriated as his “lair,” ha ha.
Yuri loves to hide and then jump out at me. His favorite thing is to leap from his cat tree onto the sofa when I’m walking by. He times it just right so he flies right across me. I can actually hear the air whistling as he flies through the air. We haven’t collided yet, which is pretty amazing since I’m moving at the time. The agility and timing of cats blows my mind.
The caption for this one could be “Put up your dukes.” Yuri had just woken up and had his paws curled in front of him. They’re so big they really should be called “mitts.”
Ever the ham. As I’ve said, I had two other cats long ago, but they weren’t nearly this entertaining. I don’t know if it’s a Siberian thing or we just got lucky.
Great weekend, everyone!
He really is one handsome dude ! And sounds like he has a sense of humor as well as impeccable timing.
He really does. 😊
Among other things, I see an interesting study in pupil dilation:
Top, dilated; middle, not at all dilated; bottom, moderate dilation.
Looks (and reads) like one amazing cat! Thanks for sharing.
Good eye! 😉
He’s a beautiful cat. I have one with a sense of humour and one who has none at all.
That made me smile, Caroline. Our vet calls Yuri a “rascal.” It fits. 🙂
