Thursday’s Special: catkids…

Lost in Translation Thursday’s Special for this week is


Here are portraits of my catkids

This is Dolly


I adopted her when she was 6 weeks old.
She was a diva and a brat and very smart.
She lived for 19 years.

This is Henry


He was 4 months old when I adopted him.
He was the sweetest cat!  He lived to please his mama.
Henry died when he was 16.

And this is Teddy


Teddy was 4 months old when I adopted him.
The beginning of Teddy’s life was traumatic and he bears the emotional scars.
He is very shy and skittish.  He loves to play fetch and bring bugs inside to play with.
He is now almost 3 years old.

    1. Well, Teddy is not a people person. If there is a knock on the door he disappears until the strange people are gone. Took him a long time to trust me.

  1. Oh I’ve missed eading about Teddy recently – I have been so tied up in “real life” that I have neglected my friends in the blogosphere. So sorry – please apologise to Teddy for me. 🙂

    1. Teddy is happy to be remembered. He understands about life. Me, too. I have been writing some but having a hard time finding time to read the blogs I follow.

  2. Beautiful cats, Patricia. Like Teddy, my Shady had emotional scars. He died of kidney disease at only five years old. I miss him. My new husband has a Bichon Frise, so I still have a pet. Blessings to you…

    1. Sad about Shady. Henry was in kidney failure and I took him to the vet to help him on his journey. I was so upset I think the vet was worried I was going to become truly hysterical…same with Dolly. Everyone needs some furry family member to keep them on track.

  3. I don’t know how I survived without cats until I got one for my daughter when she was three and said she wanted one of her own. What a cat love affair that started and continues until today…for both of us. ❤ ❤

    1. We usually had a cat when I was growing up. Then when I was living in apartments cat were usually not allowed. It was wonderful when I finally could have them again. It is a love affair.
