Sheebie Speaks Out for Mo' Cats!

 Friends and Kitties!

A few years back, some ignorant moron poor misguided fool opined that there were "too many cats on the internet", and that September 9 should be declared a "No Cats Day".

NEVER!

 The cats of the world retaliated by declaring the day Mo' Cats Day!

Now, I personally think that there may be such a thing as too many cats in the house (a number currently exceeded at my abode) but there's always room for one more kitty on the innernets, and with that in mind, here are some Mo' photos of my folks' new feline family member, Shadow!

Please note the table runner bunched up on the chair.

All the better to stalk an unsuspecting Human!
Shadow naps here every afternoon.  She has a clear sight line down the hall and into the living room from her top secret lair perch so she can keep tabs on her Mom and Dad at all times.
Because they need watching.
Also, it's a fine alternative for the spurned (and pricey!) heated cat cup.

Underneath the chair is a great place to watch out the patio door...

...and take advantage of any (and all) possible Snoopervising activities.

I ordered some Cat-warming gifts for my folks, and Amazon provided a Most Excellent Box, as well.  Shadow doesn't know how to play much, yet.  She loves Da Bird though, and she opened the closet where Dad stowed it and proudly trotted down the hall to show off her prize!  She meeps and murps and chatters when she wants attention, and she's not shy at all--no such thing as a stranger for her.  The folks have had  friends over to meet the new furry family member, and Shadow is always ready to schmooze.

She refused to use her prettily decorated and ridiculously priced food bowls and place mat  preferring plain white serving ware. 
 Kudos to the folks for figuring that one out!

Mom enticed her onto the heretofore ignored cat tree yesterday by playing with a toy, and it was a revelation, even though those Airplane Ears might lead you to think otherwise.  

The tube is just right for a small House Panther.

Shadow has a nice place to survey her Queendom in the entryway...

...as well accept expert rubbins from the serfs.

Mom and Dad say Shadow looks just like a British Bombay cat, and her round green eyes follow them everywhere, watching.  She's tiny but dense, like a brick wrapped in silk.  I cannot begin to describe how gratified and happy I am knowing that my folks have a kitty.  It makes me verklempt.  I see photos of her in their house and it is just so right, to see a cat there.  It never fails to amaze me how smart cats are, how quick is their ability to adapt, and how adept they are at winning our hearts so quickly and completely.

Of course I'm flying down for a visit.  Soon.

Happy Sunday, and Have a Great Week!
Oh, and all of you, get Mo' Cats!  You won't regret it.

  3. Shadow sounds like the most amazing kitty! My human wonders why SHE "never gets one like that."

    I think I have officially been insulted.

  17. Shadow is truly beautiful and I would bet there IS some Bombay there in her. But she is a beautiful loved and loving House Panfur and as such, we adore her. There IS something about seeing a cat in a home. The cat makes the house a home. xx

  27. She is just gorgeous just because she is black. Nothing better than a black kitty. We are so glad she has such a good home. I think between the two of us, we do keep the innernets full of kitties. Here is hoping that is enough for this residence. Take care.

  35. So happy to see Shadow again and his new family :) What a great kitty and we can imagine how good you must feel. Hope you do get down there soon to see the parents and visit.

    Mo'Cats? Mitty and Anastasia were adopted together and it seems it's a certain time of year this happens and fast approaching (November)! Right now, our houseful is plenty..
    and we're happy.

    Hugs,

  36. I agree, there are never too many cats on the internet. And I've decided one cat is the perfect nunber in my house (my humans keep talking about getting another cat). We used to have that same cat perch. It got a lot of use before we redocorated and got some new perches. That one went to our local cat shelter and those kitties had an amazingly good time on it.

  37. Awww that's so sweet. I'm happy for Shadow as it looks as if she's living in the purrfect house for her.
