I’m sure some of you may have noticed, but I have mentioned in the past now having 5 cats. I’m sure some of you may have also noticed that said 5th cat has never been seen. This is due to a number of things, such as my laziness, dead camera batteries, and severe mats on her part. Be that as it may, I’ve just been lazy about taking photo’s. But, I’m determined to change this. I threw my batteries in the charger last night, and when I awoke this morning, slapped them in my camera and started taking some pictures again. So the very smug cat you see to your left is in fact that mystery 5th cat, Delilah. She was given to us this winter by one of Dustin’s friends parents. Their newest dog didn’t get along with her, so they decided to re-home her, and we offered to take her. Technically she is Dustin’s cat, but she’s quite clingy with everyone.
She is a purebred seal point himalayan, and her behavior is very true to a himmy. She’s very much a piece of furniture, in that she likes to lounge about the couch, as well as being very social, vocal, and playful. She’s also quite clingy and needy, and lets you know that she wants your attention by meowing or jumping on you. She also gets along very well with the other cats and the dogs, so she fits right in with us.
While taking photo’s of her, I also stepped outside to snap some shots of the flowers coming up around the outside of our house. It’s been chilly the past couple of days, so for it to warm back up and be sunny outside was a welcome break. I caught a couple of nice shots though of the flowers outside:
I’m really going to push myself this summer to break out my camera more often and get some photo’s taken. My next plan is to head down to the lake on a day off and try to get some shots of the lake and the duck’s and geese down there.
