A Few Forgotten Memories

I came across an old memory card from a camera and found some photographs I had completely forgotten about.  Romeo and Rusty were quite young in these, and I’d like to share them with you.

Romeo in little houseRomeo is in this little “house” that I bought for him so he could have a place where he would feel comforted and cozy.  As you can see, he was starting to get a little big for it, and he had to fold himself in it.  His leg just couldn’t make it!!  I think this might have been the last time he went into this “comfort zone.”

 

Romeo and Rusty atop wall unitRomeo and Rusty are sitting on top of the wall unit in my office.  I should have had the flash turned off on the camera.  Romeo is sitting on top of one of the speakers (he is a flyer – nothing is too high for him).  Truthfully, I don’t know how Rusty got up there.  I didn’t put him there, and I know my Bob didn’t.  I do believe it’s the only time he got up there.  He has short legs, and it’s a place that he never showed any interest in; he must have been very excited and followed Romeo up there.  He looks like he’s wondering how he got up there!

 

Bob smiling with RustyAnd last but certainly not least, here is my Bob holding Rusty.  Bob and Rusty had a special bond.  Bob was his favorite person, and every time Rusty came near Bob, Bob’s face would light up with a beautiful, loving smile, and they would have a conversation.  They had a “thing” going on.  You can see, from Rusty’s face, how he loved to be held by Bob.  And, this is the man who once claimed that he “wasn’t a cat person.”  He was proven wrong so many times, I can’t begin to count.

A Busy-Box for Cats

I took out the busy-box for some intellectual stimulation a couple of times this morning.  First time on the bed; second time on the bench by the window.  Romeo particularly, likes this toy.  I have to mention that Romeo is my quiet boy, and he hardly ever gets excited about anything.  He usually just likes to make himself comfortable somewhere – anywhere – and looks beautiful.  But, he is very sweet.  When he wants my attention, he stretches out his paw to me when I’m sitting, taps me on my shoulder so gently and voices his request with his gentle “mow.”

And so, ends another day being busy with the busy-box!
