Muffin playing with tie wraps on Deck Chair

Muffin Playing with Chair Tie Wraps_edited-1

Our Feral Cat, Muffin, was really having a good time with these ties.

This is, again, the second time in the last couple days I’ve had to post something twice due to the right hand menu overlaying the image.

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.

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 says, I would like breakfast, please?

Muffin says I want my Breakfast

Well, who could resist a face like that?  Sorry the image is not so good but I had to shoot it before she changed expression.  I even cut off parts of ber ear and a paw.  Also, I should have lightened it some.   “Don’t do this at home!”
