Feline Friday – #20 – Foothill lives on



I was looking through some old photos to pick one for today’s post. I came across some photos from around 1985. Is that REALLY 30 years ago?

The cat in the above photo is Foothill.

The cat in the second photo (taken about a year ago) is Freddie, my current cat.

As you can see, Foothill is missing his tail. He was in an argument with a garage door and he lost. But it never slowed him down.

This last photo is Freddie again, from a few months ago.

As I was looking at the photos of Foothill it blew me away how similar his markings are to Freddie’s. I never thought about it before.

When I went to the shelter for a new cat in 2013 (after my Tuxedo Friday passed away) I was looking for a full blown Tuxedo cat. But when Freddie decided to adopt me, what could I do? So I came home without a Tuxedo cat… but now I realize I have another Foothill.

Maybe Foothill was waiting to be reincarnated into the right body!

I am an explorer and creative person. I've had many jobs, careers and interests... everything in life and the universe fascinates me. Born in Brighton, England, I've lived my entire adult life in Los Angeles, California. A few years ago I rediscovered photography which is a great excuse to get outside and look. I'm also in the process of re-writing some of my unpublished short stories and possibly a novel. .

    • Jill, not only the markings but Foothill was a really silly, not too bright cat…. and Freddie is the same way! I call him my silly boy…


  2. Adorable! I like black and whites! Ours was Sylvester.


  3. No tail for Foothill, but still tales, Ros. Lovely looking cat. 🙂
