My ‘Children’…Cee’s Oddball Photo Challenge

Many people know know me well know I love to take pictures. This is a relatively new finding-I started on a trip to England with some friends and haven’t stopped! Unfortunately the only equipment I have to work with is an iPod and the camera on my phone (or phones I no longer use). Still, I think they turned out pretty damned good. Others, not so much, which is why I might not have published or shown some of the earlier ones. Most of these were taken with my old LG for Verizon, but not all.  Anyway, here are the “weird” photos I’d like to submit to Cee’s Oddball Photo Challenge. http://ceenphotography.com/cees-odd-ball-photo-challenge/

Haley and Slater, two of the sweetest cats in the world!

Two of the sweetest cats in the world! They can often be found in various affectionate poses. Slater also likes to run around the house like a madman, chasing after nothing. Maybe he sees something I don’t

Hey, I told Daniel Tiger I’d scan him in if he didn’t move…:)

I miss my Daniel Tiger. 😦

“Mommy, yoo-hoo! I’m waiting!!!!

Now let’s play Find The Kitty!:

Toby is a Manx…this breed of cat is born without a tail. He’s what’s called a ‘rumpy riser’, because he has a little ‘nub’ he moves up and down.  Strangely, though, he is the only one I’ve ever seen chase his ‘tail’….*shakes head*.  Freak!

He’s a total chunk, weighing what feels like 12-15 pounds. Believe it or not, he’s not the fattest cat we know. I know one who weighs 26 pounds. Yes, you read that right. 26. What’s interesting is that he feels pretty solid, although I’m sure there’s some fat under there.

Here are some other photos I just feel like posting:

“Extreme close-up! Whooooooaaahhhh!”

Oscar isn’t our cat; he’s the 26-lb cat mentioned above but, yes, that’s a pickle he’s eating…

Anyway, these are some of my “oddball photos”. I hope you enjoyed them!

Coney McConerton :)

In this post ,https://theprozacqueen.wordpress.com/2009/11/03/117/  I said I couldn’t get Haley to pose by herself because she was too camera-shy. Well, it took a while, but I’ve gotten her to sit for a few…or, made her, or something…anyway-

Introducing Coney McConerton!

 

Haley with cone

If she looks pissed, that’s because she is. She has to wear that cone because her food allergies (soy, dairy, egg, rice…in other words, every cat food ever made) make her itch so bad she can’t stop chewing at herself if left alone. She’s doing a lot better than before-she takes pills now rather than allergy shots-, but she’ll probably always have problems in the spring and fall. It doesn’t matter that she is indoor-only; the pollen and some grasses around here bother her skin, and all you have to do is open a window. After years of having to buy her special food, we’ve managed to find an over-the-counter food (9 Lives Plus Care) that doesn’t have her allergens that the other cats can have too. It helps with Slater’s (the grey-and-white boy’s) urinary issues too.

She’s a sweet girl, though, and very popular at the vet’s office. If she were human, she’d be the prom queen.

She’s also *smart*-she figured out how to take off her cone within about five minutes of being put in “her room” to be fed and “pilled”, as well as how to hide a pill in her mouth and spit it out when I’m not looking. I think she once even *hid* her cone too-or at least that’s what I thought when I found it under the dining-room table, a place she wouldn’t have been able to get to if she’d been wearing it.

Anyway, I just thought I’d share. Enjoy!

 


Me and Toby

My ‘Children’…

It seems like everyone I know either has kids, wants them or has one on the way. I don’t have any…or, any human kids. 🙂 Here are some pictures of my ‘children’…:)

Seriously, they think they are people…:) One of them, I even have to give allergy shots to. Isn’t that strange…I didn’t even know cats could have allergies. But then, I once had a cat with Parkinson’s….Live and learn…

Haley is the walking allergy. She has a lot of food allergies, including dairy, egg, soy, and rice…which are in pretty much every cat food on the planet!

I’m not finished yet…there are five in all…you could say I’m the crazy cat lady…:)

Here are some more:

Here’s Daniel Tiger…all 14 pounds of him!

Another view:

Believe it or not, he’s not the fattest cat I know. My husband and I have a friend with a cat who weighs 26 lbs! Moving right along:

Hey, I told DT I’d scan him in if he didn’t move…:)

Here’s our ‘Little Princess’…Seriously, we aren’t her owners, we’re her ‘servants’…

Missy, preening for the camera:

This is Toby, aka Tailless Wonder:

Another…

Now let’s play Find The Kitty!:

I once saw a t-shirt that said, ‘In ancient Egypt, cats were worshiped as gods.  Cats have never forgotten this. ”  Truer words have never been spoken. 🙂

Haley’s a bit ‘camera-shy’, so I couldn’t get her in a pic by herself.  Maybe next time.
