Funny Photos

This is Lizbeth. It is not so much that she was a funny kitten - lively and active. But in front of a camera she came to life. She started talking to us!! I love this photo.

I loved this series of pictures. Washington, on the far left, got more and more annoyed with my husband's flash camera. His face tells it all.

Flame and Friends

My first story about funny cat behavior is about the kitten Flame. This little orphan was found alone when she was about 6 weeks of age. She was already eating canned food and did not need bottle feeding. We had her tested and everything seemed fine so I included her with my cats and other kittens I was fostering. I named her Flame because she had a spot of orange fur on her forehead in the shape of a flame of fire. I chose the name also because it represented her spirited nature.

Flame had a handicap. She had a crippled front leg she held up across her chest. The vet had considered amputation when first seeing her but I was dead set against it

Funny Cat Flame

One morning my husband saw Flame in the back hall hunkering down surrounded by our full sized cats. He wasn't sure what was going on so he went to investigate. Turns out "handicapped" Flame was a "mouser." She had caught a small mouse [it is rare for there to be a mouse in our house!] and wasn't about to give it up to the adult cats. Small as she was, Flame was undaunted. However, we try not to let our cats kill anything so my husband attempted to get the mouse away from her and release it. He had a heck of a time but she finally let go of her prize catch..

I know catching mice is sort of gross, but for us it was funny that the cat who "maybe should have an amputation" was the one "able" to get the mouse and keep it away from the big cats.

Funny Cat 2

Smudge was one of our first fosters. Perfectly named by one of the Rescue board members, he was a long haired black kitten with a grey undercoat. He was the only kitten in the house and loved attention. He was very young - maybe 4 weeks - but was really independent and feisty.

My teenaged son was still at home. You can see how large he was and how small Smudge was by the photo below

Smudge Funny Cat

Smudge was not hilarious funny. He just was so feisty for his tiny size. However, he had one peculiar behavior I wish I had on video. He loved to lay flat on the linoleum and have my son give him a push. He laid perfectly still while he glided across the floor to my husband. Then he waited until my husband gave him a push back and he could glide across again to my son. Smudge never got tired of this game. Here is a photo of him after he had grown and was neutered and was ready to go to a good home.

Smudge Footnote

Usually we have to say goodbye to kittens and never hear again how they are. Often the first year, an adoptive family will write a note to thank us and give us an update. With Smudge we had an unusual experience. For three years they sent us a Christmas card with an update. By three years of age he had a luxuriant very long coat, still the smudge collar, and was big.

Sherman

Sherman came to us as an orphan. He was named after the little village where he was found wandering all by himself at about 4 weeks of age. As you can see he was born with not tail. He was adopted by a very nice couple. After a few years however, their jobs became high powered and they were working 12 hour days and Sherman was unhappy. So they, with great sadness, surrendered him back for us. We got to foster this wonderful long hair grey cat who perked up marvelously with more human contact. He was quickly adopted by another family.

Sherman's Funny Game

I know he isn't the only cat who does this, but Sherman loved to lay on my husbands lap. My husband would open his hand wide and move it towards Sherman. Sherman would open his paws, legs as wide as he could to try to be scary and big. Funnier still was how big his eyes gog. Actually I think fear had no part it in. This game was practice for a later coping mechanism where cats arch their backs and make themselves look as big as possible to frighten opponents. Here is Sherman being formidable
