Sunday photoblogging: Hunter

Maybe after Henri “le Douanier” Rousseau.

Pumpkin, homeless at the time, now an indoor cat in a good home.

OK, I’m an idiot. What did I do with the photo? Try later.

That’s wonderful, Chris – and really very reminiscent of Rousseau (one of my favorite painters.)

Dr. Hilarious – Pumpkin looks nice, but maybe a bit like he fell asleep w/ one side of his face on the toaster.

The sharp focus is felinicitous, to coin a term.

Is that a Maine Coon cat, Dr. Hilarious. Beautiful markings. We have two coon cats.

Pumpkin is a calico domestic short hair. And female as are the vast majority of calicos and tortoiseshell cats (color is sex-linked so male calicos are XXY and sterile). But, thank you, she is a beautiful and very sweet cat. Hard to believe she was abandoned by her owner.

Calico cat with leaf-green eyes
Threatening all she can apprise

Such a cute cat photo! Have you seen the cat collar scrunchies (picture hair scrunchies) that you can put on cats when they go outside? They are supposed to halve the numbers of birds and small reptiles caught by cats by 49-87%, but they don’t affect cats hunting rats and mice in the garden as much since these don’t have good colour vision.

First thought: What would the cat do with Rousseau if it caught him, anyway?

Last fall, I adopted a brother and sister pair of cats. The girl, Sunset, is a double-dilute tortoiseshell, which I’m told is quite rare; the boy, Moonrise, is a classic tuxedo cat, born with a stumpy little tail. They are by far the nicest, friendliest cats I’ve ever known. And yes, their eyes are as vivid as the pictures suggest.
