ABC Wednesday
The letter this week is C

is for such a lot of things, but the first thing I think about is C is for CAT

And so I give you a nice little Collage of Callie, the Calico Cat and friends

Miss Roo,  with the collar, came with us when we moved up the hill.  She was one of a pair of sweet little cats who had been abandoned, - her sister's name was Kanga, but unfortunately we lost her to leukemia.  Miss Roo was on her own, but soon had a wonderful territory to hunt in, across the road, amongst the grapes in the vineyard.  When we moved we did our best to acclimatize her to her new home, but she yearned for old familiar haunts.  Three times we brought her home from the old acreage, but the fourth time she wandered we lost her to a car as she crossed the road, on her way to what she considered home.

We went for almost a year without a cat, but then our grandson brought us Callie, - she was so much like Miss Roo, - a tiny little replica.  But you can see she has grown into a fairly large cat now!!!  My daughter would put her on a diet!!!  She spends an hour after lunch on Charles' knee, as he naps, and he is the one who grooms her.  For me she just has cupboard love!!!!

BP is our youngest son's cat, who he loves immensely, and who travels with him whenever he leaves the meadow.  He is a gentleman cat, in the true sense of the word!!!!

Here is Rebel, Dot and Frank's sleek and muscular cat, who maintains his figure by climbing to the top of cupboards, up screen doors, and various other forbidden places.
A real 'lad' who didn't make it on to the Collage because I didn't have a picture of him,
but certainly deserves to be there.

He is so conscious of looking in good shape that he has learned
to weight himself on the scale.  I kid you not!!!!

For more C's do visit here at ABC Wednesday, with thanks to all who make this meme such a pleasure .

Seriously cool cats. I used to have them, but haven't in a number of years.

Cats with personality. One that gets on the scale, now that's funny.

The cat’s eyes remind me of crystal marbles that I played with as a child. They must be something to see when the lights are out. :) Sweet cats and so nice that you have looked after them!

I see that you are catlovers too. We had four cats . Two of them were hit by a car, one got cancer in her mouth when she was only two years old. And the most loyal of my cats died of old age. Each tIme one of them died, we cried.
Thank you for sharing. Have a great rest of the week.
