Yesterday I introduced you to the trio of Limbo kitties that lives in a house across the alley. Today I bring you another three kitties that live, at least intermittently, in a house next door. The first is a sassy girl that I’m sure most of you will recognize. She and I have had our differences in the past, but she is still a great kitty that deserves better. Her name is Cookie.
As you can see in the photo, Cookie is on the sill of an open window. She and two other kitties in her house have free access to the world, and all of the dangers it contains, through that window. They can’t always go back inside through the window though, because their guardians often close it when they are outside. One of the other two kitties Cookie lives with is Mama Cat. She is another familiar face in the Blog of Otis.
Mama Cat only weighs about 6 pounds, but she has the heart of a lion. I’ve seen her stand up to cats twice her size, which impressed Me, but also made Me angry at her guardians for putting her in such a dangerous position. Mama Cat is a real sweetheart that likes to put on shows. And what an amazing performer she is! I have never seen anything like her “halleluja-straight-to-the-sky” paw raises!
Mama Cat’s son, Nacho, also lives with Cookie and Mama Cat. He is a huge, shy tabby, kind of like Brother Henry, except orange.
Nacho is three times the size of Mama Cat, but she is his mom and you can tell. She bosses him around no problem. When Nacho needs to though, he can act big and tough, as he did when he thought an Abdominal Snowman was loose in the neighborhood.
All three of these cats seek regular attention and catnip from the Guardians of Otis. They are also frequently seen waiting outside their window when they have been closed outside. It is a shame that they cannot always be in a place that is warm, safe and secure.
That’s six Limbo kitties that we’ve covered so far, and they come from only two sets of guardians. We still have five more days to go in the Seven Days of Limbo Kitties feature. Is our neighborhood unusual, or do you see this many Limbo cats in your neighborhood too? The total number must be staggering!
