The Baby (aka Baby Kitty)

Chief & Sara Being Assholes

They're brother and sister so they like to get into trouble together.

 
 

Thanks. Chief and Sara I adopted when they we're like 1 I think (they just turned 6).

The Baby was supposed to be my girlfriend's mom's cat, but she didn't want to pay the pet rent/deposit at her apartment so we said we'd hang on to her for a while. We figured we were just going to give her right back so we just started calling her the baby. After about a week we were like "Ya... no.. she's ours now" and the name had already stuck.

 

As it so happens...

On a related note, we were thinking about ways to handle and organize these kinds of light offtopic posts, and I think we're going to go with the #watercooler tag, so I'm going to add that to this post now. πŸ˜„

It won't have any affect yet, but in the future folks will be able to follow or apply negative score to #watercooler depending on whether they want off-topic stuff.

 
 

Not edited at all other than cropped. This was right before his sudden 3 trips to the hospital, but now he's back to making that face again and just loving life :)

Now if only I could get PetCo to start stocking his favorite food again... His brother (littermates) will eat anything, but this pretty princess only likes the finest Salmon Primavera

 
 

It's the best! As my boys went from 2lb kittens to 12-16lb chubchubs, this is the only tower that's withstood their playing (though we live close enough to a Home Depot that it's easy to get more rope to repair the scratchers)

I must admit, ours definitely needs repairs! 😹

... and upon further look, our cat towers may be slightly different, but dang close!

Oh jeez, yeah go get a staple gun and some sisal rope haha. Or my lazy fix: most of the tiers have the same sized pole, so reassemble it with the well-loved ones on top or in the back.

We finally retired our PetCo trees but now we have 2 Go Pet Club and 1 Amarkat. All 3 needed scratcher updates since 12lb cat likes vertical scratching. 16lb cat just wants the cheap cardboard horizontal ones.

There are not enough horses in this thread so here are my 4 pets.

Wow! I lived in Scotland for a few years near a place that had Icelandic and Highland Ponies. This picture totally takes me back to that place! Love the way the sky looks in this. Seriously awesome photo!

 

Thank you, Michael.

The North Atlantic horses are wonderful creatures and all four of our horses are Icelandic.

Next to the horses, my favorite hobby is photography and allow me to shamelessly promote my 500px profile here for you 😊

It's times like these I wish we could add comments to our DEV reading list... luckily I have bookmarks on the browser though, haha!

And seriously AWESOME photos! If I was you I would promote these too, and definitely not shamelessly! Nicely done!

I have two at the moment.
There's Bowie, the friendly one who'll clamber over anyone and sit on you as soon as you're introduced:

and Ricky, the one who took six months to tolerate humans for more than a quick lunge at food:

They're brothers, rescued as feral kittens, and they're mostly inseperable:

Today, Ricky's being sick and not eating, so I'm looking after him.

 

My two little space-heaters: they lay like this next to me on my couch on my work-from-home days. (seriously, during the summer, I have to set the A/C 1-2Β° cooler than I would if they didn't always insist on scooching-up right next to me).

 

This is me chilling' with Lea the Samoyed. 😁
