Friday Cat Blogging

Today I'm doing both Pixilated Cat Blogging and Live Cat Blogging. The first picture below is of my husband's virtual pet cat from the game World of Warcraft. He worked long and hard to kill Cookie during a quest in the hope that the Siamese cat would drop. There was a 1 out of 10 chance that the cat would drop. It took him about seven tries to win the cat. Because the Siamese looked so much like our Snowshoe named Koala who died three years ago, we decided to name the Siamese Koala. A Snowshoe is a cross between a domestic shorthair and a Siamese cat. Snowshoes have white "boots." Koala talked all the time and he could be a real pain in the ass, especially when he was bored. He demanded we entertain him. When the food bowl was empty in the middle of the night he used to knock books from the bed's headboard over onto me until I got fed up, got out of bed, and filled the food bowl. He was my favorite cat.

Below that picture is a picture of Koala and Oreo from about five years ago. Oreo's giving Koala a big hug, and she's just ecstatic about it. Those two were inseparable. Oreo gave birth to six of the seven cats in the house, and all of them hang out together. She is a good mommy.

Hee! My mom's cat used to stand on my bladder until I had to get out of bed to pee.

Ha! Koala used to do that, too. He was a heavy cat - close to 20 lbs. Mulder will do that to me if she ever bothers to come downstairs again. She's a carpet whale who sits on my bladder in the middle of the night because she wants me to pet her.
