It’s no mystery that I love cats. My own two kitties, Buddy and Holly, are pretty special and important to my health and well being. There is just something about a cat that makes me smile.
When we were growing up we always had a cat or two or ten. Our mama cat Peek (short for Peek a Boo) was a very fertile thing and it was before the days when getting your pets spayed and neutered was a thing. We always had a nice group of kittens several times a year that we had to find homes for and sometimes we were successful and sometimes we weren’t.
Our cats back then were outdoor cats and living in small towns with highways running past the parsonages that we lived in proved to be more than some of those cats could handle. We had our share of kitties that were hit by cars but never Peek. She looked both ways before she crossed. No joke.
But now I have two adorable grand kitties and who doesn’t love to look at pictures of cats on a Monday morning? Well, if you don’t this post is not for you and I will obviously excuse you from going any further.
Diego and Fajita are Siberian cats and VERY fluffy. Diego was adopted first by Aaron and he is a beautiful silver mackerel color. His fur is getting so long after that one unfortunate hair cut experience. We won’t talk about that.
Fajita is from a different litter, a different breeder and has a totally different personality. She is a huge snuggler and loves to play. She has a lot of kitten left in her.
They love to chase each other and play with the millions of toys that Aaron and Erin (and yes, maybe me) have bought for them.
Even if you are not a cat person I think you have to agree that these two are pretty fun.

A fun post to start the week😊
That was my goal! Thanks for stopping by, Bernadette! Have a great week!
Thanks for the smiles!
Anytime! You know I am full of cat pictures!
Love!! I especially loved the pic of the furry feet hanging over the edge of the cabinet.
That’s my favorite as well. 🙂
Diego and Fajita are adorable and I can see you will spoil them. I Skyped with my daughter and grand-kitty a couple of nights ago. Garrison is a Siberian as well and is so fluffy and cute. Pets are so good for us, aren´t they?
Oh that is a great name for a cat –especially a Siberian! They are so regal, aren’t they? I love my grand kitties and am always entertained by them.
Dog person here but I read the whole post!
Well aren’t you just the bees knees reading my whole post? You are the best!
So you’re not going to share the bad haircut story. It could be entertaining, make us laugh…
Let’s just say it was not a good day for Diego.
Your cats are adorable (love the pic of the feet sticking out from the top of the cupboard) 🙂
They are pretty fun kitties and I love seeing Diego make his way to the top of the cabinets.
I always love looking at kitty pictures!
And I love looking at yours as well!
Cute kitties. When I was growing up, my family also always had cats and most of ours met the same demise as yours – that dreaded crossing the road. They just weren’t like the chicken who crossed to ‘get to the other side. 😉
Sounds like we had similar experiences with the crossing the roads. There was one that really upset me when he got hit but I guess I learned to accept that it was part of life..and death.
Yep. Living in the country as I did, it was just a fact of life. The hardest thing to accept was when one of our kitties went missing and never came back. Didn’t know if he met his fate on a road somewhere or tangled with a wild animal or….???
You never know but it was always hard to lose one. I had my favorites of course and one named Junior was especially hard to lose. My Buddy looks a lot like him. 🙂
All of the cats in your life are dears. I miss Buddy and Holly so much!
I could really use a cat tonight. 🐭
Love those big, fluffy kitties! Fun shot of Diego in “his” spot.
Connor loves cats, but I am not a huge fan. I like cats themselves, but am not into litter boxes and scratched up furniture.
Haha! I get it! I have a self cleaning litter box and that makes it so much easier!!!
I am a cat person and I think they’re adorable–no matter how many vacuum bags of fur they’re about to release…Wonder how long it would take to collect enough of *that* fluff to spin a skein of yarn?
