Lots of people regularly blog about their pets, and I really enjoy reading about and seeing them. However, it occurred to me that I rarely mention my guys, so here at last is an introduction to my inter-species roommates. Like all cats, they have turned napping to an art form. But they are very active when not napping, and when they all get 'the rips' at the same time, all you can do is duck! I managed to get photos that - except for Elliott who is nodding off in his chair - that show them awake but not dashing around. They really only seem to have two speeds.
Elliott - a rescue cat from the Tsuu T'ina reserve, Calgary. A real little gentleman, with a handsome two-tone smoke coat.
Flash - a pound rescue cat from Okotoks, Alberta. The only surviving member of a family of 5 feral barn cats. She was injured one fall and spent the winter indoors with all of us, mending and getting very tame, and never returned to the wild. Such a tender little heart.
Sweeney - got her as a kitten from a friend the foothills. She thinks because she has a cute nose, she can get away with anything, and is always startled when it doesn't work for her. There are limits.
Pearl - the baby, the resident diva, and sometimes a bit of a beyotch to Flash and Elliott. She came from the same friend as Sweeney, and even nursed from Sweeney's mom as a kitten. She never takes a swipe at Sweeney like she does the other two. I keep everybody's claws clipped since they are all happy indoor-only cats!
