A few months ago, I posted a couple of pictures of Oz, our kitten, and his remarkable yawn.
Oz ain’t that slender any more, but still has the damnedest yawn I’ve ever seen.
But I’ve neglected Sam (sometimes Samwise, sometimes Sam as in Samuel Pickwick or some other Dickens character, mostly just Sam), who’s now our older cat. As with any cat we’d have, he’s a “rescue cat” and certainly not purebred, although he appears to be largely Maine Coon, including the remarkable Furry Feet (lots of fur under and between the toes).
Well, my wife the librarian and photographer has been using her Nikon digital camera from time to time, and caught Sam in these two pictures, which are wholly unretouched:
He’s 10-12 pounds, and has lost most of his paunch as Oz has gained one. Yes, there’s a connection…
