Feather Fun

Feathers are fun; at least, Rusty thinks so.  He’s the most playful of the three.  I got a few shots with the feather that I want to share with you all.

This was a rare one in which I caught his mouth open, tongue out, trying to grab the feather.

Closeups: Romeo

Romeo is a Ragdoll.  Many people have never heard of that breed, and yet, it isn’t all that new.  It’s been around since the latter part of the 1980s, I believe.

How did the Ragdolls get their breed name?  Well, the story goes like this:  It seems that a woman came across a cat that was very handsome, like Romeo, and when she picked it up, it hung limp – like a child’s ragdoll would.  A very simple story.  Since then, there’s been some cross-breeding (most popular with Siamese and Birmans) to define the breed.

My sister calls Romeo, "Mr. Handsome."  I can't imagine why!

A thoughtful moment, contemplating what to do with this feather.
