Princess Layla

“If I were a professor, I’d bring my cat to class. I’d be silent until it meowed, and as soon as it did, I’d stand up and say, “Lecture’s over.”
”
― Jarod Kintz, If you bring the booze and food, I’ll bring the thirst and hunger

Ella Phzztgerald

Continuing the “Cat Week” theme…

Ella is a Tortoiseshell, the term applied to describe her unique coloring. Almost always female, Tortoiseshells — or Torties — are typically known for having personalities as distinctive as their coloring of amber, black, cinnamon, brown and red; there’s no white as there is in a Calico. A fireball of personality, Ella is strong-willed, quite vocal and very territorial. She will hiss, spit and growl to demonstrate her displeasure with anything and everything from her chair being occupied to the water in her water bowl being the wrong temperature. She has been known to actually stomp her feet, spit and wail when something isn’t to her liking. This has earned her the name Ella Phzztgerald — “phzzt” being a phonetic approximation of the sound of her displeasure.

Lest this give you the wrong idea, Ella is also one of the sweetest and most affectionate cats you could ever hope to meet — once she gets to know you. Initially quite wary of strangers, she hides until she decides it’s safe to let you see her. Once that happens, though, it’s pure entertainment and affection from that point on.

Lethargy as an Art Form

“Guilt isn’t in cat vocabulary. They never suffer remorse for eating too much, sleeping too long or hogging the warmest cushion in the house. They welcome every pleasurable moment as it unravels and savour it to the full until a butterfly or falling leaf diverts their attention. They don’t waste energy counting the number of calories they’ve consumed or the hours they’ve frittered away sunbathing.
Cats don’t beat themselves up about not working hard enough. They don’t get up and go, they sit down and stay. For them, lethargy is an art form. From their vantage points on top of fences and window ledges, they see the treadmills of human obligations for what they are – a meaningless waste of nap time.”
― Helen Brown, Cleo

The Yawn of the Rested

“You are getting very sleepy” is not a command when said to a cat; it is an eternal truth.
— Ari Rapkin

Camera Curious Cleo

Cleo was 10 years-old when she arrived at the shelter 2 years ago. She lived there for a little more than 3 months before being rescued. A complete sweetheart, one can only presume she got overlooked because of her age, for it certainly couldn’t be an issue of personality. She is friendly, curious, affectionate and quick to try to give humans a bath with her sandpaper tongue. I don’t know if she thinks we’re all dirty or if she just likes the way we taste. Her beautiful tortoise-shell coloring combines with a very distinctive voice and an insatiably curious disposition. She seems to enjoy having a forever home now. Her housekeeper and kitchen staff certainly loves her.

A Pink Spot Between Two Moons

“As anyone who has ever been around a cat for any length of time well knows, cats have enormous patience with the limitations of the human kind.”
– Cleveland Amory

The title is a reference to Cooper’s little pink nose and those big, moon-like eyes. Probably not what you were expecting…
