Muffin being groomed while eating

This is my first attempt using a new device – Tablet –  anyway and also, I regret the image is not great but I had to take it from a distance and through our sliding glass door so I would not disturb Muffin. My wife, Jean, is grooming our feral cat, Muffin, who many of you know, while she eats.  She is also removing burrs from Muffins underbelly.  Muffin is perfectly content…even falls off to sleep once in a while as all this occurs.  She never makes any attempt to nip or bite … never has in ten years.  It took us two or three years to even get her to allow us to pet her.  Finally, when she has had enough for the session she darts off and sits.  Basically saying that’she enough for now.  There are other times when she will not allow Jean to pet her or even get to near to her. (the feral in her we suppose.)  I feed her each morning and pet her while she eats as well.  Thought you’d like this despite the poor image … at least you can see what’s taking place.

I would like my breakfast

This morning I opened the curtain on our sliding glass door and there sat our feral cat, Muffin, waiting for breakfast.  I had to shoot her through the window.  She doesn’t – and won’t – come in the house.

My wife, Jean, grooming our Feral Cat, Muffin

Jean grooms Muffin when she can.  Sometimes Muffin walks or scurries away, but today she just plopped down and enjoyed the attention.  She’ll roll over, stretch out, or even lie on her side.  She often moves forward as she’s being groomed but always close to the ground.  She had a burr in her tail here and didn’t mind having it removed at all.  Jean didn’t know I was taking the picture but she’s a good sport and was OK with me posting this.  Muffin couldn’t have cared less.

Muffin on the Prowl

Muffin, our Feral Cat, was on the prowl, looking for who knows what, when I captured this image.  She looks either chubby or pregnant … there’s no way she could could be pregnant due to the capture, spade, and release program a number of years ago.  I managed a a slight bit of work in  Photoshop Elements 6 to sharpen and adjust the color so she’d look just like you’d see her in person. Enlarge for a better look!

Muffin, our Feral Cat, relaxing on the Deck.

We often find, Muffin, laying on the deck, looking through our sliding glass back door.  She doesn’t want anything more than the chance to see us and feel wanted – that’s how I feel anyway.  She bats her eyes when she sees either my wife or me and that seems to be enough for her at the time.  By the way, she’s slimmed down a bit over the summer.  This was taken some weeks ago.  It is now 6:50AM and I fed her at about 5:45 AM. When I pulled back the curtain to the deck this morning she was sitting there waiting for me…this is normal procedure for her.
