Nine Lives

Lots to write about this week's stop on the byway in Washington, DC...but too busy to write at this time, so need to post some photos...

I love animals. I love pets. I have two cats (I love dogs too, but I have traveled too much to take on that responsibility). My oldest cat was adopted as a small fuzzy kitten from an animal shelter in Ithaca, New York when I was a graduate student. He is now 15 years old. He developed diabetes a few years ago so I have to give him insulin shots twice a day. Many who know him know that he has a history of being crabby and unfriendly to others, but he is a little lovebug to me. Like most pet owners and lovers, I find him endlessly entertaining and cute, and I take way too many photos of him, which probably only I find interesting. Here he is - the nine lives of Mr. Kitty.

  1. These photos just gave me chills. In the third one and the last one, I can still hear him hissing "Lizzzz"...

  2. I love Mr. Kitty. Even if he *has* tried to kill me in the past.
