Frilly Fossils

A week of photography

First of all, for all of you plant specialists out there, can you tell me what these flowers are?  I can’t figure it out, and it’s driving me insane!  Apparently they were transplanted into the garden at my parents’ house before they moved in, and they don’t have the foggiest as to what they could be.  Please comment below if you have any ideas!

Now, it’s time for you to meet my darling babies.  I absolutely adore cats, and I currently have three of them.

This is my oldest kitty.  Tiger was actually born at my parents’ house, and was the only one out of six kittens that we kept.  He goes by many names (i.e. Tigre, Grr Kitty, Tigers, Gir, etc), and he enjoys prowling around the yard, pouncing on anything that moves, meowing, being held, and having his belly rubbed.  He’s such a sweet baby!

Next, we have my sweet Luther.  He has a bit more of a story to him.  My mother and I found Luther behind the washing machines in a laundromat and took him home.  It took a lot of convincing to get my dad to let us keep him, but eventually he caved in.  Luther was actually named after Martin Luther, a German priest of the 1500’s who nailed his work the “95 Theses on the Power and Efficiency of Indulgences” to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenburg in 1517.  This little kitty also goes by several aliases (Loofa, Loofa Sponge, Luther Bug, Loofason, etc.) and loves laying in the sunshine and cuddling.

Finally, we come to the cat that I’ve had for the least amount of time, Fiasco.  I acquired this little one in a rather unusual exchange.  My grandmother had promised to help me buy a new car if I would do her a favor.  When I asked her what the favor was, she said that I would have to take home a stray cat that had been living in her yard (she’s allergic to cats).  I, being the cat lover that I am, had absolutely zero problem with this at all.  Fiasco hasn’t earned any nicknames yet (besides Fatsco), and he’s still fairly shy.  I’m slowly getting him to warm up to people, but he’s definitely taking his time.

And that’s all I have for this week.  I’m sure you’ll hear more about my crazy cats, or my obsession with anything involving cats, in the near future.  Until then, I would love to hear about your pets!  If you have any interesting or unusual pets, or would just like to talk about your little critters (or big ones!), then please feel free to leave a response in the comment section below!

Much love!

Alexis

  1. Great pictures! I love cats too. By the way, the flowers in the first picture are daffodils. You find them everywhere in Britain in Spring – they’re the official flower of Wales.

  2. Awe I love you cats! I wish I could have one but I am deathly allergic! I think that they are just sooo cute! I liked learning a little bit about each one! =)
