These photos are from the house we used to live in from 2003 until 2016.
Thanksgiving 2005, I picked up Oz from a client’s yard. He’d been put out of the house he’d lived in. I had been at a house there in that neighborhood, to feed the cats there while the owners were away for the weekend.
As I was leaving after the first visit of the long weekend, I walked to my car, saw the long haired black and white I knew was now homeless and opened my passenger side door. I crouched down next to my car, parked by the sidewalk, in hopes that this cat would come to me. I didn’t know if he would but I’d decided that if he did I’d take him home.
Anybody’s guess what happened. 😀
These photos were taken at different times through the years and they are not arranged in chronological order. I chose a few that I thought showed some different aspects of him. I could’ve gone on for weeks. I have so many photos of this cat and he has many faces and traits that come across in photos. Looking at all those pictures of him made me smile and laugh. He really is quite a character.
Taken 12/26 2015. Sitting in the dining room window on his perch. He’s sitting on a horse blanket. My mother gave us three. She used to ride and had her own horse. I’d stacked the blankets on the living room floor. Oz found them, had a little lie-down on the stack and adopted them as his own.
Taken June 2012. Napping high atop the CD shelf.
Taken January 2009. It’s all about the clutter. He’s on the dining room table. B cluttered up the table every weekend and Oz was in heaven.
Taken January 2009. Same day as previous photo. Just a different spot and a little different angle. A bit closer to B, who’s at top left corner.
Taken May 2014. Visiting the neighbor during our yard sale that day.
Taken May 2014, same day as above but this is the morning, getting ready for the yard sale. Oz made sure to get a prime spot.
“Do NOT disturb.”
Taken Jan. 2011. In our basement drinking from his bucket. This is all he’ll drink water from. Well this and the toilet and he’s cut off from the toilet.
Taken September 2006. On the side of the house, looking toward the back alley. Our house is to the left. I’m sure he’s pondering where to go first. Lots of rounds to make.
