A Light and Fluffy Post

CoCo got da recyclin' blues



Introducing one of the loves of and in our lives - CoCo our "faded Calico". Isn't she a sweetie? But then I am biased of course. She is a true lap cat, though not in this picture. Apparently, she wants to be recycled.

CoCo is roughly 8 years old, I say 'roughly' because she was about a year and a half, when we got her in 1999 (I think). In any case, she was one of three siblings - Pepsi, Coke, and Sprite. She was Coke. When she was at the Pet store, she was with one remaining sibling, Pepsi. Sprite had already been adopted. We always understood that these little pookers had been the receivers of verbal abuse (the owner would literally scream into their little faces. So, because of that, they all had behaviours resulting from that verbal vomiting. At the Pet Store, Pepsi remained at the back of her cage, huddled in a blanket, looking totally frightened. Coke, on the other hand, came over to the cage door, and wanted to be petted so badly, and would rub along the cage door and purrrrrr so loudly. We fell in love, and brought her home. Hence was the introduction of CoCo into our home.

Our home, every inch and crevice of it, belongs to our kitties (we have 2, and BJ has been in some earlier posts, and is due for updated recognition). CoCo is notorious for finding many and varied spots for resting in.....

roadkill - taste in in the mouth of the beholder! Recommended are the caramel and the popcorn flavors.

Thank God. There IS life in the blogosphere today :)

Coco is such a beautiful kitty. My favorite picture here is the one of her curled up on the couch.

GRRRR to her previous owners. I have zero tolerance for irresponible pet owners.

Certain vital clues lead me to suspect road kill's identity.

masgblog said...

barb - CoCo thanks you for the copmpliments. She is a little darlin'.

masgblog said...

tg - well, who do you think road kill is?

tg said...

I like the first picture of Coco best, because of those immense eyes.

masgblog said...

Isn't she something? I have another post of fluffies, but I thought I'd give it a break in between...waiting for one of those 'I don't know what to post' days.

masgblog said...

barb - that couch is our bed....another popular spot for snoozing.

Barb said...

Ok.. I like the one of her on the bed then :)

barb - :-)...CoCo is so happy that you now know where she spends a LOT of her time.
