Feline and Furball Friday -- Stevie getting warm
It's time for Steven's (sometimes)photoblog to sponsor Feline and Furball Friday. Today my picture is of Stevie, getting warm in front of the propane furnace in my dining room. It is quite obvious that she doesn't have a tail. She isn't a manx cat; she lost it due to an industrial accident at my shop when she was about 6 months old. It's lack prevents her from doing some of the jumping that the other cats do but mostly she does pretty well without it. (A cat's tail aids in it's balance, so she is without the ability to jump up on high places.) She loves to lie where it's warm or soft. She also appears to be a bit chubby but I don't know if that's because of all her fur or not. She doesn't run around and exercise a lot. She's a sweet cat and although not friendly to the other two (she acts like she's "Queen of the House"), she has her moments of being very lovey with me. At 13 1/2 years old, she's not a young kitty and I don't know how long she has, although indoor cats live longer than outdoor ones. I hope it will be a few more good years!
To see more furry and sometimes feathery creatures, go to Steven's blog (linked in the first sentence) and you will find links to other blogging participants, both in the blog itself, for the week before, and the comments, for the current week. Join in and play if you have critters to share! It's fun!
