Sasha, our tiger-striped kitten, sleeps on the power bricks of our computer equipment. She loves doing it because they’re warm.
As soon as Sasha arrived in our home, Felix befriended her. As she grew up, they were the best of friends. Even though Felix was a tomcat, Sasha would often try to suckle from him and of course there was nothing to be gotten. Still, out of love for her, he tolerated it. He’d often get up after a suckling session, his fur all wet on one side of his body.
The music is “Opus 118, No. 2, Intermezzo in A. Major” by Johannes Brahms, interpreted by Carlos Gardels. The track is public domain, obtained from MusOpen.org.
We visited Sighisoara recently and we met an adorable, friendly and very pregnant kitty inside the fortress walls, in the parish garden — which makes her, beyond a doubt, a medieval cat. She acted as our host while we explored the garden.
She got a belly rub from both of us, which made her very happy indeed.
When we finished exploring the garden, she did the civilized thing and accompanied us to the gate.
Sasha was recuperating after being spayed and we played together with my wooden train set. She caused five “train accidents” as she pawed at them. Adorable!
Felix, our adorable tomcat, is playing with Ligia. He loved to play with her like this, always pouncing on her hand, making those cute squeaky meows. He’d chase after her everywhere, trying to get her to play with him like this.
After we came back home from travel, Trixie and Felix found one of our bags particularly interesting.
They love to sleep together in cold weather. They curl up in their little bed and start purring (Bubu starts snoring) and they keep each other warm.
Here’s a video of Tira that goes together with her story. She’s such a sweet little kitty.
We adopted Felix after his mother, who’d had a litter of five or six kittens, rejected him. He grew up with us, and at about one and a half years of age, he disappeared while exploring the neighborhood. We’re still hoping to see him back, although it’s been almost two years since his disappearance. He’s still one of the Medieval Cats and we love watching videos we recorded while he was still with us.
This is one of those videos, when he was still tiny and I played with him while he sat in my office chair.
