Wow, the patterning in those irises is amazing! Great macro subject if you can get her to sit still!

My two new foster kittens have been to the spa and blow dried. One is a boy with flame ears and flame tabby tail, all white med fur otherwise. The other is a tabby/calico mix who is exceptionally calm.
I guess I'll have to start picking up my camera again.

The shot of the Fat Cat above was done from a foot or so away when I was wringing out the 100mm L macro that I got a while back. New toys are always nice, and a good excuse to buy one should not be wasted... ;)

LOL - yes, she has lots of fluff alright! She needs a lot to cover her 15 pounds of pudge.  :p

She is quite the love bug, though - all you need to do is LOOK at her and she starts purring (loudly)! One of the most mellow, easy going cats ever.

Last October I took home a cat-mother together with the kids she gave birth to near a big blackberry bush at the other end of our yard. Two were born dead (or didn't make it through the night) and two were alive. Well, to be completely honest, I suppose I know who the father is and out of the four, the two dead kittens had very similar fur coloring, so I'm not sure what really happened.

IMAGE: http://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-lV2_kQ_s2og/UbfimuLaiqI/AAAAAAAAAZo/Ibsw48Cairw/s800/Padme-Luke-Leia-01.jpg

Long story short: I was convinced I'll be looking for three new homes, I was promising myself not to get attached and not to fall in love... I failed. Every single day I was getting more and more fond of them up to the point when I couldn't imagine letting them go. Well I couldn't imagine letting them stay either. While they were tiny, the laundry room with the adjacent bathroom and my small workshop were more than enough for their needs. But I knew they were going to get bigger and I was going to have to introduce them to the house at some point. That was going to be a problem.

It's not that they wouldn't fit in my house, it's just that I didn’t find it among even remote possibilities that Yoda (my firstborn cat, introduced here some time ago) would accept any other animal on her territory. Simply put, she hates cats. All of them and every single one of them. If she spots a feline during her walk she goes ballistic and it takes a longer while to calm her down. Even if she stumbles upon a cat's scent she gets pretty upset and believe me: transferred aggression can be a tricky and scar producing thing.

Won't bore you with the details but as you may imagine, my house became a madhouse. Two fractions: cat-hating Yoda and cheerful bunch of newcomers admiring her, willing to know her and to play with her. Pure, growling and hissing madness.

There were no surprises but one. Even if she got (gets) upset, she reacted in completely different manner to the cats she met inside her house. She growled, she hissed but there was no aggression. That's a plus, at least there was no blood and flying fur. She'd just sit there and cherish her hatred.

IMAGE: http://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-OFkZlayvzTE/UbfiVzkep_I/AAAAAAAAAVg/dDL6xFC44Iw/s800/Luke-Leia-portrait-sofa-02.jpg

After these 8 months she got more or less used to them but it's faaaar from being perfect. There is still a lot of growling and she won't let neither of them to get close. I hope to see them play and sleep together one day but whatever she decides, three more cats are here to stay and I became a fully qualified crazy cat gentleman.

When it came to baptizing them, there were actually no doubts. When a mother, her daughter and her son land on a planet previously occupied by Yoda and you see the shadow of a stray, gloomy father passing through the yard at nights, how do you name this bunch? Please meet: Padmé, Leia and Luke (and I'm not even a Star Wars fan).


IMAGE: http://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-oQJP7fYHbsk/Ubfim_U1JVI/AAAAAAAAAZk/qfXc0FRaIh8/s800/Padme-Luke-Leia-03.jpg


Padmé aka. Mama, the mother, is a sweet cat with broken soul. By her habits I believe that she had a house before and that she has been beaten. Maybe the broken tail and large bruises she had were the remains of someone explaining a pregnant cat not to come home anymore. She gets scared of almost everything: sudden moves, loud noises, barking in TV, someone coming, someone going, someone wearing different clothes... you name it. And whatever happens around her, she immediately turns her head and looks at us with the guilt written on her face. Like the proverbial beaten dog, like it was her fault, like she did something inappropriate. I was fixing something the other day and when she saw a piece of cable in my hand, she panicked and hid herself in the litter-box. It's a real pity to see her like that, but with small steps we're getting better. Considering that it took her about 3 months to even think about getting out of the laundry room and into the house, I find it a great success that she now comes on her own, plays and even stomps around with her kids in our presence. She's a sweet, playful and adorable cat. She loves to be caressed but that's only possible in her nest, where apparently she feels more or less safe. Today she managed to sleep on the sofa longer than for 5 minutes, there was even some stretching and rolling involved. I know we're going in the right direction.

IMAGE: http://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-3JYo8hRqBok/UbfjJyyxoCI/AAAAAAAAAew/SmskOnmEo7w/s815/Padme-portrait-03.jpg

Leia aka. Mickey, the daughter. She's as sweet as candy, petite, crazy, sparkly, furry ball of energy. She's really tiny, like a cat-chihuahua, but being the smallest she's far from having inferiority complex. She's a fighter, really smart and a natural born thief. If she happens to like a toy she'll simply steal it and hide it inside their nest. Size doesn't really matter, she always finds a logistic solution. Every now and then she brings and plays with some long forgotten ball or toy-mouse. She's usually the mastermind behind every stunt they pull together with her brother and for some reason she's the fashion leader - other cats usually pick up every new habit she invents. Sometimes she's a bit of a jester. One of her great achievements was convincing her brother that the correct way of drinking from the fountain is to wet one's paw and then lick it. She'd do it every time in his presence until he picked it up and started drinking the same way.

IMAGE: http://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-bhYhuClEzgM/Ubfi6JJXhPI/AAAAAAAAAbc/GP8eQN7H7sk/s815/Leia-portrait-21.jpg

Luke aka. Fatso, he's not overweight he's just well built. We sometimes joke that he has used most of the flesh in his mother's belly and there was not much left for his sister. At about 3 months he was already larger than his mom. He's the embodiment of ZEN; a true lion; a ladies men; a blend of Bob Marley and Barry White; a cat that truly doesn't give a damn. He has a serious crush on Yoda. He's a true peace ambassador too, follows her wherever he can, lets her hiss and growl at him, looks at her with his buttery eyes all the time and when she's done swearing he'll just invite her to play with his adorable giggling. Until now he had no luck with her but if anyone will succeed in taming our little savage, it's him. This guy's vocabulary doesn't contain the word "aggression". Loves to cuddle, loves to eat (he's like a vacuum cleaner), loves to nap in front of the fireplace - a purebred hedonist. His size doesn't forbid him to be very playful and fast. He hunts flies and succeeds at it! The only problem is that when he's playing he's as finesse as a bowling ball. He doesn't care where he has to climb, how high he has to jump, on who's head he's going to land on and what damage that's going to inflict. The job has to be done! When he's running down the corridor and his mom or sister are not participating in the chase, both will usually get out of his way because he stops for nobody.

Now you get the idea why I just couldn't give them away. I'd suck big time at being an activist. The siblings love each other so much that I just couldn't get them separated, would have to look for a house that would accept them both. And I truly doubt I'd have found someone with the patience for Padmé because, let's face it, no one wants a neurotic cat that he won't be able to touch for the next couple of months.... or years. Besides, four cats are always better than one, so here we are. If I knew what I know now the day I've found Yoda, I'd have never let her to grow up without other cat's company. When I see how much they enjoy being together I can clearly recognize what she has lost. No matter one's intentions, no man can replace a cat. Now I've learned the lesson: cats grow in pairs.

Lovely story and thank you for doing that for them. The same litter can have more than one father which may explain the colorings. They are all pretty kitties and I hope Yoda isn't holding on to any resentment.

What a heart warming story! Thank you for taking them in. Yes cats can steel your heart like that isn't? They are very beautiful I most say...
Maybe mum will come around a little more but it will take some time but you seem to do very well! And Miss Yoda...well maybe Luke will win her heart someday who knows. Or Maybe she will just tolerate them. My first family did just that nothing more, while my new little kittens love each other being siblings (I just hope it will be like that forever..)
