Wednesday in Imperialistic Cat Land.

Just another day on the range with gud dud herding cats and javelinas. 

I have written before that Son who lives with me is a volunteer at the Humane Society.
He loves cats and works with them getting them ready for adoption.
He has fallen in love with several of the cats but after all this time has opened
his heart to two overlooked bonded 11 year old black cats.
The adoption was finalized just before the HSSA Newsletter came out for Fall.
We have stars living with us now.
Merida is on the left and Oliver on the right.

...........

As always just because I can here is your pretty for the middle of the week.

    1. I like older cats and dogs.
      I always want to adopt the dogs with problems. But since thehamish was attacked by a really big dog... I can only look at smaller older dogs. He is not comfortable around big dogs now.

  2. That first shot of Hamish makes me think of the line "release the Kraken!"

    Of the many cats my family had over the years, I think my favourite was a black cat named Misty. She was an eccentric, but such a gentle soul.

  3. I thought at first glance Hamish was expressing disdain for Oliver and Merida's celebrity status!

  7. Comment on the last picture made me laugh out loud. Go Hamish, but seriously, I think he will be fine with two elegant black cats.

  11. Hi, Gayle!

    Looks like we both have a cat theme going this week, dear friend! :)

    Bless people who take in older animals and love and care for them for what remains of their lives. Your black cats, Merida and Oliver, are sleek, beautiful and intelligent looking. They look like a set of bookends. I hope thehamish will get along with them and that they all become the best of friends.

    Have a great weekend, dear friend Gayle!

  14. A great bit of info on your 'stars' How lucky they are too. We adopted a black cat, he was an adult and had clearly been loved, he was found sleeping under a hedge and had been outside for some time when reported to the RSPCA. He was I'm sure, once owned by an elderly person who may have died and he was left. I loved him so much...really my all time favourite cat. Black cats are always left behind at rescue centres-still seems that people have these stupid superstitions about them...even today. I think the rescue organisations even run Black Cat Days to promote adopting one.

  15. Our friend Tamago mentioned the good news about your black cats and I had to stop by. I'd like to share your story at my blog or black cat community page on Facebook www.facebook.com/blackcatstellall. I'm an advocate for less adoptable cats and launching a nonprofit book promoting black cat awareness and adoption. Thank you for sharing the much needed positive message about black cats and senior adoption :-)

  17. Ah now I see - not one cat but two and I'm assuming all animals love each other.
