Stripey and Harry are two kittens that adopted us about 5 years ago.
Stripey was the one who had the broken jaw that the vet had to do surgery on and rewire his jaw before he was a year old. At the same time this surgery happened I had him neutered but not declawed because they lived outdoors and he needed his claws for protection.
He and his brother were outside cats unless we had really cold weather then I brought them inside. They hunted mice and birds in the barns and pastures. Every morning they greeted me ready to eat and every evening it was the same thing. At night was when they went off and hunted.
Stripey has been missing for 7 days today and I am so upset as well as his brother Harry seems depressed without him around.
This after our oldest indoor cat Ishy passed away about 5 weeks ago she was 14 years old.
Harry nor Stripey liked strangers so I know no one got him. I just have no idea what could have happened. He was here the night before and was acting fine and eating. I knew when he wasn’t there for his morning feeding something was up.
A cat in the clover on a sunshine-filled day.
Mr. Bird was being snoopy when I was taking pictures of the clover. Next thing I know he was right in front of me trying to get a photo session.
Most of our animals are not camera shy lol.
Stripey was just sitting there all prim and proper so I could not resist taking a picture of him.
This was taken using my Canon 400mm lens and it really turned out quite clear and he had no idea I was taking his picture.
Mr. Bird wanted out early on this day so I let him out when I went out to get some sunrise pictures.
As I looked back I saw him posing near some dead grass and I thought ” I need to take his picture”. He was staring off into the distance at something but I never could figure out what it was.
Mr. Bird lives in the house but every morning he goes outside.
He likes the springtime the best those days he will spend the most time outdoors.
Since our weather has been cooler he goes out and comes back in within one hour.
He does not like the rain, wind or heat much less the cold lol. When he is ready to come back in he sits in front of the french doors so I will see him staring in at me.
He just wants the best of both worlds indoors and outdoors.
