I’ve seen everyone’s babies, dogs, bunnies and selfies. Now it’s Caturday and by gum I’m going to post pictures of my cats. All day.
This is Claude, a feral stray we didn’t have with us long enough. When we coaxed him into our house and managed to get him seen by a veterinarian, he turned out to have FeLV (feline leukemia virus). We had to keep him and his food completely segregated from our other cats (at the time, Eurekatous and Mrs. Pedecaris), but luckily the configuration of the house allowed that. He died only a few years later, but it was a joy to see him turn from feral killing machine to lap cat.
