I wanted to do Mo Cats day, but yikes, time got away from me. it seems to be doing that a lot... I need a stronger grip on it I guess, lol! Anyway, this is a post of my first Mo Cats day when I first started blogging in 2011.
Apparently I posted twice that day, I'm combining both posts here. It's a lot, so feel free to just look at the pretty kitties if you want, I won't be offended! :)
(the rule breaking is in the second post, by the way)
Can you believe someone thought there should be a no cats day on the internet? I'm so glad we have Mo Cats day instead!
to do my part, I'm just going to post a bunch of pictures of my
kitties. I had planned on finding pictures of kitties I've had through
the years, but computer and house things got in the way and I haven't
had time to look for any. If I get to that later in the day, I'll post
For now, enjoy my current fuzzy friends! And give me Mo Cats!
(These have all been sitting on my camera/phone/computer for a long time, they just hadn't gone with anything yet)
Leo The Chinese Lion
I already posted pictures of Star and Leo in the previous post, so don't forget to scroll down!
I wanted to post pictures of my own previous kitties, but I realized
that there are none on digital or scanned into my computer and with
everything torn up around here, I can't get to my albums to scan
anything. So I'm going to show what I already had on the computer.
I'm breaking my own rules today for the sake of Mo Cats! The first rule
I'm breaking is no posting more than once a day. I wanted to get these
in while it was still Mo Cats Day.
This is my mother's cat, Dopey, from
when she was a pre-teen or teenager. She could dress him up, put him in
baby buggies and he just didn't care.
I go breaking my second, and probably my most adament, paranoid, hard
and fast rule.. never, ever post a picture of myself! Ever!
But, in my defense.. it IS Mo Cats day and the pictuers I'm putting up are old old old.
is me probably 7 years or so with the a kitty I'd given to my Gramma
when he was a baby. His name was Charlie and he was a great cuddler.
was indoor and outdoor and before she'd had him even a year, he'd run
away. I swear I saw him near our house months later. Could he have come
back 'home'? We had a new dog then, and whoever that kitty was, he
year or two later, I gave my gramma another kitty. A grey kitty that I'd
wanted so so much, but realized that it would be better off with her.
We were feeding the kitties puppy chow at that time and her small mouth
had trouble with it unlike her siblings. The puppy chow kept getting
caught between her upper teeth and she would flip out trying to get it
out. Poor little thing. I gave gramma a choice, but really really went
on and on about Foggy's good qualities. She chose her, thankfully, and
gave her a new, better name. Misty. Miss Misty Fog.
Just look at that tummy! And the brat never let me rub my face in it!
hard to tell from these pictures of her as a kitten, but when she grew
up, she hated everyone except my gramma. She occasionally looked to my
grampa for a pet or two, but she was gramma's cat and no doubt about it.
Misty, by the way, was an indoor only kitty, except for the few times
my grampa would take her out and sit with her on the porch swing. She
never left the porch.
Another picture of me with Misty, Oh I'm just killing my rules.. I'm thinking I might have been 10 here.
terrible.. another of me. This time as a teen with Bumper. He was a
friend of my grandparents' cat but they couldn't keep him any more. They
called him Bumper because he bumped his head into anything and
everything when he wanted pets. Buddy bumps we call them now. We had him
for years and he was a very cuddly kitty. I loved laying sideways in
that overwide chair.. So did bumper.
is Niece 1's cat, Gandolf. He was a sweetie. But as an indoor/outdoor
cat, he had an unfortunate run in with a car and had to be put to sleep.
My very dear friends cat, Bubba. He's absolutly gorgeous! And another sweetie pie!
Another rule broken, showing anyone elses face. Well, I guess I broke that at the top when I showed my mom with Dopey..
is my gramma, the most special, wonderful, loving woman in the world,
now in heaven hopefully with a lap full of kitties. She's holding my
mom's cat Zippy as a kitten.
What a sweet face!
More Zippy as he grew up.
Can you find the kitty?
Zippy with Beauty the black lab
of my parents kitties being held by my gramma. She just loved loved
loved kitties! I don't remember this kitten's name.. They had several
kitties before they realized that the coyotes were too active at night
in their area. Moose is not allowed out after dark and that has
I made this as a wallpaper for
my mother's computer when she had this kitty. Click the picture to see
it full size. Beauty and that kitty played together a lot. Beauty was a
very good girl and never hurt the kitties. The kitties were not always
so kind in return.. But they loved to play with her! You can see by her
grey muzzle that Beauty was getting up there in age.
This was my great gramma's cat, Middy, short for Midnight for her black black spots. She was a nice warm lap cat.
great gramma got her as an adult because her previous owners decided
she didn't go with their new, million dollar, black and white house make
over. They kept the black and white spaniel.. Some people have no
And that's all I'm going to say about that.
Just look at the beautiful kitty!
Well, there's my Mo Cats! I hope that contributed to the stash of
kitties on the internet and that whoever decided they wanted a no cats
day realizes by now that cats will never go away, they own the
internets! Cats Rule!
Don't forget to look at the previous post for my first Mo Cats Day post!
Just some FYI clarification on a few things in this post. Some of the things in the second part, especially from when I was a kid, might trouble some of you. They do me, now, too. Yes, I know you can't feed cats or kittens dog food, this was way way long ago, we didn't have the information we do now, and I think puppy chow was cheaper than kitten chow and my parents made that choice. We never lost a kitten from it, but I certainly wouldn't even consider it now. Also, now we know the dangers of indoor outdoor kitties, back then it was just normal. While my gramma lived in a more rural area, I grew up in the country, in the woods, on a dead end street with little traffic, indoor outdoor kitties was just normal for us. Now all of my cats are safely confined in the house. I'm not exactly in the heart of a city or anything, but there's enough traffic and dogs that I feel better keeping them confined, and they are perfectly happy, never even try to get out. Anyway, dont know why I felt the need to defend myself, just reading this old blog kinda triggered me I guess. ;)
Happy Mo Cats day everyone!
Thankful for Mo Kitties, so joining the blog hop!
