Chowing Down

It’s fun to watch the two of them when they are making good use of the food bowls.

I love how they line up in unison, “copy-catting” each other.

Chompin' away.

Chompin’ away.

Nothing interrupts their concentration.

Or, is that always the case?

Patches has to see what I'm doing standing in back of them.  Rusty always concentrates - no matter what is going on around him.  Right now, his world is the bowl, and nothing else matters!!

The Great Divide

At opposite ends.  Romeo and Patches seem to have reached an agreement on the couch.

Flat Face Rusty

Rusty belongs to the breed known as “Exotic Shorthair.”  It’s an official CFA (Cat Fanciers Association) name for this breed of cats that originated from the Persians by way of a genetic mutation many, many years ago.

One of the distinguishing features of these cats is their broad, flat face and small ears.  This is the first time I was able to capture Rusty’s phenomenal facial side view.

I Love When Rusty Poses

I walked into the patio a few days ago, and there was Rusty staring right at me!  I love when he has his paws turned down like that.  I quickly turned around and went for my camera, praying that he would be in the same position when I returned.

He was!  The photos below are the result before he decided to jump down.

Patches Loves To Sunbathe

The patio is very sunny, since it faces south.  Patches is the only one of the three who likes to sunbathe, and the patio is perfect.

She’s feeling good right now, “soaking up” those UV rays through the tinted windows.

An Unusual Pet Family

Today’s post is not about my three cats.  It’s about a young Brazilian man who has accumulated his pet family which consists of one golden retriever, one hamster and eight birds.  The absolutely star of the photos is the dog.  Typical golden retriever:  loving, patient, and happy.

Romeo Is Surrounded!

He loves his toys.  They’re his friends, too.
