Cat Photos Friday #123 Chester Jeeves day!

These guys are are four!!


Four years ago we took a trip to Petsmart because we were thinking of getting a cat. ONE cat. We met a lady who had just rescued a bunch of kittens and she talked us into getting two, although we didn’t really need much convincing! We set up a time to visit her house and pick out cats, but we already had our eyes set on the orange one. I’d always wanted an orange cat named Chester, and when I saw him in his Petsmart cage I said “Look it’s Chester!”

Then we just had to decide on a friend for Chester, and there were so many cute guys to choose from!


We thought about getting this little grey guy, but he was so shy and hid from us the whole time. Chester was an outgoing cat so we wanted someone with a similar personality. That’s when we decided on Jeeves. He was a little shy but very lovey and very active.

Jeeves and the grey cat really liked each other though, I think maybe they were actual brothers because they looked similar!  But we didn’t get the grey guy because three cats seemed like too much. ..

Which is funny because the very next day after we chose Chester and Jeeves, Cloud decided to move into our house and we ended up with three cats anyway. 

I still think about that grey cat, and wish we had gotten him too!

Fun fact: We originally thought about naming Jeeves Bertie, and then Jasper, but since he’s wearing a tuxedo, Jeeves seemed to fit best. He’s our butler cat.

Another fun fact:  Cloud’s original name was Ghost. But then I started calling her Cloud and it just fit better.


Chester and Jeeves were in pretty rough shape when they first got rescued from a feral cat colony.. But now they are happy and healthy! 






I can’t believe it’s already been four years!

Cat Photos Friday #109- Paper Bag

When something I bought came in a paper bag, I just knew the cats would have a great time playing with. So I threw the bag on the floor along with some paper, and sure enough, the cats raced over right away to check it out.


Jeeves usually doesn’t like anything new or weird, but he couldn’t resist a good paper bag.
(Especially after a window was installed!)



I hope your weekend is as fun as this paper bag!

Cat Photos Friday #100- Favorites

Since it’s my 100th Cat Photos Friday post, and it’s been about two whole years since I started it up, I thought I would post some of my favorites from the last two years.







It’s hard to believe I have been able to keep this series going for so long. I take plenty of pictures of these crazy guys so I’m sure I’ll never run out!

Cat Photos Friday #96- Valentine’s Day!

Valentines day is coming up!  The cats are excited and busy making their Valentine gifts.


(Or maybe they’re just busy making a mess!)


For a few minutes Cloud tried being Jeeves’ Valentine..

But she regretted it instantly!

Chester still hasn’t decided who he’s going to give his special Valentine to.


I hope everybody has a great Valentine’s day!

Cat Photos Friday #86- Beneath the Tree


It’s the cat’s favorite time of year! 


When that sparkly fun, toy -holder appears in the living room, and provides hours of cat entertainment every single day.
The cats put on their best Christmas sweaters for the occasion.

The boys didn’t mind wearing their sweaters, but Cloud hated hers. I think she just didn’t feel cute in a bulky turtle neck sweater. (But who does??)
Chester played Santa and sat on the roof of their gingerbread house.
His favorite pastime is chewing the plastic tree -_-
  
The only way Cloud would sit in front of the tree in her sweater is if I put a stack of books down!


Don’t be a Grinch this season!
