Unhappy cat all wrapped in blanket

Tot is extremely unhappy:

  1. He’s an indoor cat. He afraid of the outside.
  2. He’s with a whole bunch of people that he doesn’t know. One person holding him in the blanket. One person cutting his nails and finally me taking photos of his “torture”.
  3. He doesn’t like it to be held tight in the blanket.
  4. He wants to hide and …

Biffy, the could be “vampire slayer” basking in the sun

This is Biffy. Her name comes from “Buffy: the Vampire Slayer”. Her owner worked on that TV show when the show was made in Vancouver. It ran between 1993 and 2003.

Biffy is a very relaxed cat. Not much fazes her. I am about 1½ meter away (about 5 feet) with my dog just behind me. She’s not concerned …

Pouch the Cat & the Great Outdoors: Vancouver, BC

Pouch was an indoor cat. He always dreamed of being a great explorer of the outdoors. Occasionally, he would be successful in his escape attempts. But…

It never was difficult to catch him. He would immediately stop at the flower next to the entrance-way of his house. There, he would spend some time sniffing or eating some of the plants.

The problem …

Chester a confident, curious and calm cat

Chester a confident, curious and calm cat

Some animals exude confidence.

Chester is a ‘cool’ cat. Not much phases him. He is very interested in people. Chester doesn’t hiss, Chester doesn’t scratch, Chester doesn’t bite. I like Chester.

People adopt dogs. The bonding happens during the walk. Dogs will bond with the person because of the shared experience of going for the hunt walk.

People do not …

Socks: Vancouver Downtown Eastside

Socks is a very unhappy cat and she’s giving me the evil look. My job is to “bug her” and to pay attention to me.

I’m bugging her while she is being “tortured!” One person is holding her very tight, another person is cutting her nails. By “bugging her” she’s paying attention to me and not biting Perl who’s cutting her nails …

Inkpad was a stray cat that was found in a back alley of the Vancouver Downtown Eastside. He was scrawny and starving. Lily used only a little bit of ham for Inkpad to get out of his hole and to become an indoor cat.

Why did Lily named him Inkpad? Lily makes graphics with a nib and black ink. It looks like Inkpad rubbed his …

Samson The Cat: New Westminster, BC

Samson The Cat: New Westminster, BC

Samson doesn’t live up to his name. Samson is supposed to be strong, courageous. The keyword here is supposed.

Samson is afraid of almost everything, especially me and my camera with the big lens. So he’s been ‘demoted!’ His current name is just Sam.

Samson is a very old cat, he’s almost 20 years old. He still has most of his …
