Willie Rembrandt Black, model extraordinaire.

I have been a working cat all my life.  When someone is going to take my picture and they say, "stay", I don't move a muscle.  When they click their nails I look where they did the clicking and I stay there.  I concentrate!  I'm a really good boy and the best artists' model in the world!  
On this day when I was finished working I went in the wood pile after the lizard.  I didn't try to catch it, I just wanted a closer look and I gave it a little pat on the back.

Let's Go!
I like to go for rides as long as it's not in a car or van, they take you to the vet and well, you know the things they do!  When we lived in town I had a cat mobile that I rode in.  Jean says I'm too fat for this that I would bounce out like a rubber ball but I like it and I would hold on.  Maybe she'll build me another cat mobile so I can get strolled around.

No pesky ants!

It's a nice time of year when it's fairly warm and the ants aren't in the yard to bother me.  I got a little sun on my tummy and I would have had a big nap except I have to keep an eye out for those mean rabbits........I know, I know, everybody thinks they aren't mean but just go lay out in the yard with your eyes closed, they'll sneak up on you and you'll find out.

Help!  I'm being poisoned!
Since Jean took away my dry food I'm eating raw food.  It's 95% venison, duck and sometimes other things but those are my favorites.  I hate change but I do really love the raw food, it makes me feel like a big tiger.  I have to chew and chew, I had almost forgot how to chew.  If I had known that real meat was so good I might have considered killing something when I was living in Alabama and going outside.  Oh, just that thought made me gag!  No killing, I'll just have my meat out of the freezer, thank you.   Aside from missing my dry kibble, Jean gives me melted coconut oil in a syringe twice a day and it makes me gag.  I gag when I see it even before she gets to me.  Sometimes I just think about it and gag.  She says it's making me feel better because I don't limp now and I walk around more, my fur looks good and I've stopped licking the fur off my belly,  but it's just spring and every cat feels better when it's spring.  I know it has nothing to do with that horrible coconut oil!  It is nice that I get yogurt after I have the dreaded coconut oil.

Happy Easter!
Today I heard a bird hit the window so I yelled, "I wanna go outside!".  Jean came and opened the door.  I immediately went under the bush where the dove had landed.  I patted it and made it flutter its wings.  While I was sitting there thinking what to do next Jean dragged me out by my tail!  That was so rude!  She told me if I didn't watch it I'm going to have to start wearing my leash again (see picture).  The best thing was to get away from the bush for the time being until I can catch her not watching, then I'll get under there and see if the dove is still there.  I used to chase rabbits under that bush but they are pretty big and I decided that might not be such a good idea, no telling what a mad rabbit might do!  Next I went over to an area behind the bird block and scared up two quail, I made them fly away.  I am a mighty hunter on this day!  Tonight I'm going to dream of all these adventures and tomorrow I'm going to see if I can catch the Easter bunny, whatever that is.  I hope it's not mean.

Well, it's been a really long time since I posted!  Jean says we'll try to do it once every week or two.  I hope so! 
Here is a picture of me just letting the breeze blow on my belly while I relax and have a little cat nap.
I am almost 16 now.  I wasn't feeling too great but I'm on an all raw food diet and I get two squirts of coconut oil twice a day.  I am not fond of getting things squirted in my mouth but I have to admit that it does make me feel better and I really like the raw food.  I have always had a bowl of dry food and that is gone, I miss it.  I don't miss eating it, I just miss it being there in case I need it.  The raw food makes me feel like a wild cat.  Not that I have ever gone out and caught my food, yuck!  Food should be served in a bowl well prepared for a cat like me.

It's a cool, windy day today.  A good day to stay inside and have a snuggle in a warm bed!  
I found out what a buffet is and I like buffets!  About a week ago, I threw up so Jean gave me a little canned cat food with some extra water and some raw steak chopped up real fine.  I was in her studio where my bowl of dry food always has been so she brought the other two bowls and put them in a row beside my dry food, so it was dry food, raw beef, then canned food, then water glass.  I was amazed at the choices!  I wanted to enjoy and take it all in because this was special to a cat who only has one thing at a time!  I sat in front of the bowls, looking back and forth for a minute just savoring the concept of "buffet".  Then, I walked around the dishes deciding how and where I wanted to start.  Then, I sat for a while again just enjoying.  My tummy was more than ready for me to eat so I started.  One bite of dry food, one bite of beef, one bite of canned food and repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat and just because it was so fun I couldn't help myself........repeat!  I finished off with a nice drink of water.  WOW!  That was fun!  Since then, I've been looking sadly to the right where the other two bowls sat when Jean gives me food, but she just ignores me!  I'm trying to be a really good kitty since I can't just throw up when I want to, well not always anyway.  I hope if I'm really good, I'll get to have a buffet again!
