The other day Dana @ En Tequila Es Verdad put out a challenge with this 'I shall now turn the battlefield over to Jen and Greta, having laid down the preliminary fire. My readers are encouraged to submit any adorable cat pictures they have, in case an escalation of hostilities is the unfortunate outcome of Crommunist’s ill-advised sortie.'
And this was just what I needed to finally break down and try to get some more pictures of him. I must admit it was quite funny. I was taking some of the tulip magnolia tree (that I've already posted), when Shaddow the cat showed up. I decided to take his picture too, only being a cat he was too dignified for that and wouldn't cooperate. I was bending over with my butt sticking up in the air trying to get him into a poseable position when my neighbor walked by. She called out 'where's my camera when I need it.' I told her she could borrow mine since that seems to be my better side anyway. We both got a good laugh over how those things seem to change with age. While we were joking around the cat decided he had had enough and proceeded to disappear.
Shaddow then showed up on top of my car. He likes to pretend its his and gets really upset when I decide I need to use it. He doesn't complain too much because he knows when it comes back it will be nice and warm and when the weather is cold that's his favorite place to be -out of the weather in the garage on a nice warm car. So here's some of the pictures:
As an added bonus. My niece just got a new kitten for Christmas and I just had to get some of him too. Isn't he cute.
Now I muse about the fact that I know shadow is spelled with one d but to be honest the vet aid spelled it wrong when she entered it into the computer and we've stuck with Shaddow ever since.
