Three weeks in a row now I have managed to post a Feline Friday. So I will stop remarking on it and get on with the post.
As you can see from this and previous cat photos I have posted, I have a lot to learn about taking cat portraits. Getting a cat to sit still and/or using a fast enough shutter speed to capture the moment always eludes me. Practice makes perfect so I will keep trying.
I won’t repeat the story of how Freddie came to adopt me. You can read the story here.
Just to say that when I walked into the West Los Angeles Animal Shelter, little did I know that there was a feline lurking there who was determined to go home with the next human who interviewed him. Lucky me!
I say that both facetiously and seriously. We have shared a home since August 20, 2013 and my life hasn’t been the same since.
And as if Freddie wasn’t mischievous and rambunctious enough, when Frankie adopted me a few months later, my life was over.
I read stories about “cat ladies” living with ten or even fifty cats! Three is more than enough for me and some days I wonder what I was thinking!
Freddie wasn’t a small cat from the beginning. But around one year old, one morning I woke up and it seemed like he had doubled in size overnight!
At 18 months he is my Gentle Giant weighing in at 15 lbs. I can only hope he has stopped growing. He is a real sweet heart, but the clumsiest cat in the universe. When he jumps on the bed at 2:00am it feels like an earthquake.
Now you have met all three of my boys, what to write about next week?
