Friday Photos–Cats in the Country

Here are some “family photos” I thought cat lovers might enjoy seeing.

Black Kitty

Black Kitty, a feral cat who finally adapted to living inside

Pumpkin, Up Close and Personal

Pumpkin, on the swing beside me

Shorty cooling it

Shorty, in a very casual pose, beside his brother Pumpkin. Shorty looked pudgy, but he was all muscle, not fat.

Steffy, a portrait

Steffy, who didn’t come inside until she was six, but adapted well.
