On a #Caturday last year, Marjon tried to stow away on my trip to Tel Aviv. I guess he heard that cats were respected and loved there.

Sometimes Marjon wants me to hold him like a baby — a “not-wee baby” at 13+ pounds.

Boswick would like you to know the radiators are warm. (He just crawled up on the radiator cover in my office, sprawled to full length, had a DEEP SIGH, and went to sleep)

My gorgeous girls are celebrating their 4th birthday with lots of cuddles and duck treats. 🧀🧀🥒🥒🎊🎈🦆 Here's a few pictures from their ongoing birthday photo shoot. #blackcatsofmastodon #blackcats #catsofmastodon

A black cat named Pickle looks into the camera. She's perched on a cat tree shelf next to a window. The background is split with the left side being the wall and jute rope scratching post, and the right being the soft green of new leaves on a tree outside. The overcast daylight illuminates the half of her face which is framed by the green tree, with her yellow-green eyes appearing grey. There is a tuft at the end of each of her bat ears.
A close up shot of Cheese, a black cat with big, round, yellow-green eyes as she looks into the camera with the soft white glow of a lamp illuminating half of her face. The lamp is reflected in one of her eyes. Her fluffy fur stands out crisply against the white wall in the background

Innocent Marjon* dares you to rub his belly on #Caturday.

* Early on we discovered that he can be bitey.

Kind of wonderfully overwhelmed by an outpouring of love on this app this evening. This is what social media used to be, and apparently still is, if you know where to look. This - Mastodon - is apparently where to look. 😊 As a wee “thank you” to all the folks who followed, boosted, said hello, and the like, allow me to share these pics of my children: Dexter and Gato (with a bonus peek of me). #catsofmastodon #tuxedocatsofmastodon #blackcatsofmastodon

It's Friday the 13th, so here are some pictures of my good luck charms. #blackcatsofmastodon #blackcats #catsofmastodon

A void named Pickle rests on her belly on a bed. Her soft green eyes half opened, left arm stretched in front of her in a lazy superhero pose.
A black cat named Pickle sitting on the crow's nest of her cat tree and staring right into the camera.
A void cat named Cheese in the foreground is sitting on a coffee table. She has a peaceful expression. Behind her, to the right and out of focus is her sister, Pickle, who is sitting upright in a bright sunbeam, patiently biding her time. Her long shadow stretches out behind her in the bright morning sunshine.
A regal looking black cat, Cheese, perches on her shelf on the cat tree in the strong winter morning sunshine. Her dark fur has rusted in the light, giving her chest an orange glow. She's looking right into the camera with her big, beautiful eyes. Long black whiskers caught in the sunshine become white against her coat.

The face of a black cat is peering out from within a pile of towels and clothes. She is entirely covered except her eyes and nose. Her bright yellow eyes are staring directly into the camera.

Happy #Caturday! Oh, to be this comfortable for but a few fleeting moments. We lowly humans may never know.

Me: Nah, you go ahead. I'll watch the #cat watch it instead.
