My name is Racer and I sit on my hoomin Mom's lap every morning, unless Atticus beats me to it, while Mom reads the herd check in.

This morning some folks said Mom should post my picture but she didn't know how on her iPad.  So I talked her into using her regular 'puter and here I am reading the sports page of the paper...

Wonderful to meet you and your feline family, Racer! (2.00 / 17)
What sort of cat is Atticus? There's something other-worldly about him!  

I never travel without my diary. One should always have something sensational to read in the train.

Atticus is from a reputable neighborhood ;) and in cat world he's a (2.00 / 13)
transmogrifier pilot.  Also a lawyer.

The real answer is he's an American short hair with Russian Blue (2.00 / 13)
in there somewhere.  Wicked smart boy he is!

Of course it's ok (2.00 / 12)
It's wonderful to see family photos! When it warms up, I'll have to do a furry family photo shoot. Cocoa will love it. She really knows how to work a runway.

D'awwwww (2.00 / 8)
They're all so cute!  I don't know how you manage with 8 though, wow!  Major props!  My two are enough of a handful for  me.  :-)

Thanks, we actually have nine. We had 11 but lost Toonces and Pooh (2.00 / 8)
late last year :(.  Toonces was 16 and had adenocarcinoma of his bowel, had surgery and three rounds of chemo but...
Pooh was five days shy of his 21st birthday and finally succumbed to congestive heart failure.
We lost Toonces on Sept. 20 and Pooh on Dec. 27, exactly 14 weeks to the day later.
I just can't post their pics right now.

Losing pets is always rough.  Sounds like they lived nice long lives, but that doesn't lessen the sting.  

Oh, I see where I miscounted - Racer + 8.  Duh.  Work must have fried my brain; that's my excuse & I'm sticking to it ;-)

No worries, you're a little busy at the moment! When one pootie (2.00 / 8)
is sick or just off a bit it feels like you have several more than you do.

lovely family nannyboz (2.00 / 4)
it's good you took the day off, sometimes we just need a break.

Thanks! Being retired makes it hard to justify in my mind until I realize (2.00 / 6)
I simply work differently now and so need a change of pace along the way from time to time.

NB, you really have a wonderful pootie crew. (2.00 / 1)
Atticus looks exactly like a cat i had years ago, Shadow. also wicked smart. he really liked to play hide and seek, i would find harder and harder spots to hide, make some intriguing noise that he would of course have to investigate and when he found me, i would play the mockmonster game, scaring him. he ran away only to come looking for me again.

he could play that game for hours, he was great.

thanks for sharing your family pics, now i can put a face to a story when you tell it.

time...it seems to move so slowly until that day, when it doesn't.
