People don’t understand. When they ask us to house-sit and cat-sit for them, they think it’s some kind of burden. They don’t realize it means unrestricted, uninhibited getting to us.

A demand met in Deadwood

This beautiful creamy-yet-angular ginger cat was lounging on her front porch. I couldn’t resist going up for a hello and getting some pets. Luckily her owners didn’t chase me off with a shotgun.

Welcome, can I escort you to your table?

Cat Hunt: Week of May 1

Finally – a gotten:

Now this is a cat that appreciates a fine session of getting and being gotten.

A gotten gets a mouse

I like to get Hobson when I visit Boston for work. I’ve been reliably told that what he got in this picture, got away eventually.
