Portraits

Today’s post is for all of Rufus’ fans who were disappointed that he didn’t appear in last week’s post.

Here’s my current favorite picture of the devilishly handsome silver and grey gentleman.

The pensive expression; the extended tail; and the capper, that silly brick-colored nose, combine for a portrait that captures Rufus’ essence very nicely.

(The tail, by the way, is Kokoro’s. I’m not sure where Lefty was at the time, but he’s atypically absent.)

Moving on.

As a special bonus, enjoy this peek at–and from–one of my god-fuzzies.

Patience continues to work Teh Kyute, as she has since she was a handful of fur. Her “Who, me?” act needs some work, though. Sticking one’s head out of the back of the stereo cabinet diminishes one’s credibility when trying to deny responsibility for turning off the music…

Three Cats

A grab bag of felines today–though I don’t recommend putting cats in a bag. Especially not multiple cats.

Lefty continues to heal.

As you can see, the fur is starting to grow back on his forehead, and his nose no longer looks scabby and raw. And this picture is several days old; he’s looking even better now.

He’s still spending most of his time in his Fortress of Solitude and refusing to interact with us, but he’s moving around well, eating enthusiastically, and keeping himself groomed. In fact, he’s turning into quite the dapper gentleman.

Then there’s Watanuki, who seems determined to prove that even the most thuggish fellows have their charming moments.

Normally, he’s extremely dignified, but occasionally he forgets himself and winds up showing off his cute side.

Speaking of which…

Patience may not be a kitten any more, but she continues to embody the very spirit and soul of cute.
