A blog by two cats who used to live in the same house in Northern Virginia. Unfortunately, they are both no longer with us.

Bathsheba's Tortie Tuesday
I can't help it. I get jealous of Jake. I know he's handsome, but the trouble is, he knows it and uses it to his advantage especially around Dad. He may be a Man Cat, but he's not a great BIG Man Cat. I need to assert my tough a** tortie reputation and show him who's boss. At 15, I am the eldest cat in this household. He's just thebaby.
Jake: I was a nearly 15 year old tabby who commanded and demanded attention. I used to love to hang around on my deck outside. I developed cancer and died February 5, 2009. I didn't like my sister because she was cranky. Bathsheba: I was a polydactyl 18 year old dilute tortie and white. I used to be a big hunter in my day, but I retired when I went deaf. I developed a rapidly spreading cancer that affected my appetite and I died in the garden in November 2009. I loved my mom the best. Jake was a constant annoyance, but I missed him when he was gone. For a short while I contended with that bothersome kitten Emerson who is now my legacy to the cat blogosphere.
