A Bengal Cat or a Marbled Tabby? – Photo Story

I saw this cat that looked like a Bengal cat, but I wasn’t sure.  It could be a marbled tabby cat… I couldn’t tell the difference.

So I did what every crazy cat lady would do, asked the cat.

Excuse me, Mr. Cat. Are you a Bengal or a marbled tabby?

Mr. Cat said “Don’t bother me. Go away.”

Then the cat got up and crossed the street.

I followed but he stopped and said “Stop following me!”

Of course I lied and said I wasn’t.. I was going the same way.

The cat went through a fenced in garden, but I could still see him.

Then the cat stopped. So I asked again.
“Are you a Bengal cat or just a marbled tabby.”

He just turned his head and didn’t answer. I think he felt insulted.

“Please,” I said, “I just need to know.”

The cat got up and said, “It’s time for my dinner. I’m going home.”

Then he stopped and said, “Please stop stalking me or I’ll tell my human you are trying to kidnap me.”

OMG!

What a mean cat I thought…

I am still not sure if the mean cat was a Bengal or a marbled tabby.

… but I know where he lives.

Meet Razor – A Haiku Poem

I don’t remember the name of Razor’s owner although I had bumped into them more than once while I was walking my dog, Snuffles.  Snuffles was cool with Razor.  He probably thought Razor was just another dog, who kinda smelled funny.

Can you see it? #4 – A Robin and a…

This American robin was extra cheerful this morning.  And why not?  Spring is almost here.  Can you see the robin perched up on the tree?   No?  Ok, here’s another picture to assure you that the robin was up on the tree.  Do you see it now?  Good.

Now, back to the first picture.  There is something else on the tree aside from the robin.

Can you see it?  What is it?

A Ferret for a pet, anyone?

ferret

Did you know that in the United States, ferrets are the third most popular house pets, next to dogs and cats?  Well, I didn’t know that, did you?

Here in Canada, we don’t have such a study and since most ferrets are kept indoors, I really have no idea.  I had seen a couple of ferrets playing in the park and, that ferret that the owner was proudly walking on a leash in downtown Toronto recently.  But that’s it.

Ferrets, I just learned, are very playful animals.  They are hyper… I mean, they are full of spirit.  They explode out of their cages at play time, leaping and twisting and scampering, with an obvious joy that to the people observing them find totally enchanting.   They open their mouth and hiss (like in the picture) when they are being playful and when bouncing around and so, some people might think they are being attacked.  But this is not so.  Ferrets are friendly little animals, very affectionate to their owners and, they are wonderful pets.

So, who wants a ferret for a pet?

Oh I just want to add that ferrets are not rodents.  They are members of the weasel family.   I don’t know if that is good or bad… to the ferrets.

Please note that the ferret in the picture was not at any time being hurt.  The “Help!” word on the picture is a joke, ok?  I have a weird sense of humor.

 

Did Someone Say FREEZE?

Toronto has long been known as the “raccoon capital of the world.”  But I’ve lived in Toronto for more than 40 years and I had only encountered raccoons at night… until last Saturday.

This raccoon was bold enough to show itself during the day.  Then an old woman (that would be me) just happened to walk by and so the raccoon stopped as if frozen in time.

Did someone say FREEZE?

I came across this photo in my file and for the life of me couldn’t figure out why I took this shot.  It took me a couple of seconds but I finally got it.
