Friday Cat Blogging


In honour of Friday cat blogging and as a continuation of my Faceless Family photo series, here is a picture of my Wonderful Smart Beautiful Daughter in the backyard with our cat Trouble.

Trouble is what we call the cat. I figure the cats' names are pseudonyms already so I don't have to make new ones up. I don't speak cat so I don't know what his real name is. And I'm not thinking that any of his friends are likely to google him.

Trouble looks like a short haired version of my BigGuy (his real name is Hartley, which sort of gives away both what I work on and definitely what a geek I am, but you know who I am anyway).

I love the faceless family photos. When I go on my trip back to my college city I'm going to post photos of my former life.

Splendid cat -- and daughter, too.

I have to say I love the grainy quality of your photos; it's like instant nostalgia.

The cat reminds me of this one beat up old cat that used to live at one of the barns where my mother had boarded her horse. He was covered in scars, his ears were notched, and his jaw was permanently askew as a result of having been kicked by a horse, and he was always dirty and covered in fleas.

He was also the sweetest old lunk.

Beautiful picture of both your daughter and cat.

Its the hair again. All y'all have such nice hair.

Have you posted a picture of Shaggy Hair Boy's hair?

Rana: Yeah, I just have a cheap camera -- the point and shoot type -- and then I scan the photos in ... so they do look different than digital ones. To me, it is miraculous that I scan a photo in and see it on the screen.

Rob: Oh, I will have to find a photo of Shaggy Hair Boy's head. It is so funny to look through my photos for pictures that don't show anyone's faces.

What a lovely picture.

I read the book Coraline by Neil Gaiman. The cat tells Coraline that cats do not need names since they know how to identify each other they really cannot be bothered with that nonsense. People on the other hand, according to the cat, need to give each other names. ;-)

How did you grow up so GOOD! Swhat I wanna know!

I just love the way you talk and think! :-)

Yes, nice hair.

Trouble looks pretty much like my Luna.

"Trouble" sounds more impressive when you claim it as a middle name. Maybe you could give the cat a throwaway first and last?

Great picture, and pretty kitty. I love that name and think that Bitch Kitty has just earned a new pseudonym.
