"This is the violet hour, the hour of hush and wonder, when the affectations glow and valor is reborn, when the shadows deepen along the edge of the forest and we believe that, if we watch carefully, at any moment we may see the unicorn."

HAW! Mr. Orange Tells All!

Hello All!  Yes, it's Me....Mr. Orange.  (That's Sterling behind me....definitely the #2 cat around here!) 

I thought I would do this post today - and let Robin (known to us as the tall human with yellow hair who brings us meals and gives us neck and tummy rubs) have a rest! 

Ohhhh..that Sterling such a finger-licker...he's a litttle "kiss-up"!

Here comes Smoke.....  guess he was napping in the neighbour's yard..... he's always late!  (Just like the White Rabbit - but very unlike Emily V.V. Wabbit!)

See that small "black dot" in the back of our yard?  Look hard....there's Midnight....he also comes late from time-to-time...   Ya know, he really isn't "one of us"...not a true brother....  he showed up a few years ago....but, we "allowed" him to stay - he's okay and "Tall Yellow Hair Person" loves him almost as much as she does me.

Here's our Mum - Puchinella!  She must be at least 10,000 years old!  (Actually about 12..)  She is tiny, wiry and tough!  She disappeared for two months and we all thought she had gone "up into the heaven in the clouds'..... but, two weeks ago, she returned - just as feisty as ever....  we think she has someone else who feeds her.....  (the Hussy)!

Oh, you can also see Charlie at the end of the line....  Now, you've met us all!  OK..enough chit-cat-chat....time to EAT!   YUM!

HAW to all!

Love and Claws,

Mr. Orange


  1. oh these guys are so wonderful. so glad Puchinella reappeared. And what a wild an wonderful back yard you have. Meow.

  2. They know a soft touch when they see one. A nice way to have pets without having pets when not allowed. :)

  3. This must be what you call the 'whole kit and caboodle'! Great reporting by Mr. Orange.


  4. cute post friend. do you know I still cannot link you to my blog- it won't accept your url..how wierd is that?

  5. hmmm, Soulbrush may have come up with something because you often wonder why folks can't link. Let's get Blogger!

    Wonderful viewing of the whole colony today. I love the licking of the fingers...so TRUSTINg of a feral to do that! They love their tall blonde human ;)

    yay that mum came back. Good thing she (and maybe the others) have found other softies out there to provide for them, especially since you've been having such a spate of cold, grey days.

    love to you and the wandering kitties!


  6. You have quite the collection of cats. What fun to have so many furry felines. Amazing that an outside cat lived 12 years. HAW.

  7. Hi dear!

    What a nice story!
    Wow those cats look so beautiful for strays. They are lucky to have the tall lady with the yellow hair around!
    Will scroll through your posts! Just like Soulbrush your new posts don't appear at my list, grrrrr!!!!

    Going ton LAX soon!!!!! Any change of comming over???????? Will mail you.

  8. thanks mr orange -- you're a great cub --- er, cat -- reporter!

    i have a soft spot for orange tabbies, so glad you're in charge of this crew! give a hug to your mistress robin for me!!!

  9. That is quite a gang of furry feline friends you've got there Robin. How kind you are to look after these guys with food and tummy rubs.

    Just popping by to wish you a very Happy Easter weekend. Hope you are well.

    .... Oh and we're off to see a Janacek opera in November! Have you seen Kát’a Kabanová? I feel quite brave as the choice was something by Rossini or by Janacek ... so I decided to branch out for a change.

    Warmest hugs from here. xx Jos

  10. When I was a kid we had a cat that we were certain had a second family. He'd disappear for weeks and then reappear all sleek and well-fed. And then survived our house burning to the ground with only singed ear-tips. Some cats truly have nine lives.

  11. {somehow i missed this one at post-time} LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE all them kitties!!!!! meow
