Hubby and I were out really early one morning - the Three Stooges were blocking our path out the backyard. As if they were going to be forgotten in the line for breakfast. Uh yeah right. While "Dad" went and got their breakfast hay, I stood and rubbed some ears and noses. Everyone was being so calm and sweet - maybe it was just to make sure they got their grub, but didn't matter I wanted lovings. LOL
They were so beautiful in the morning light, and so sweet - so portraits were a must right?
Cocoa is really the one... she is the one that only lets you love on her when she is in the mood. Other than that she will walk off. But she got ear rubs, nose rubs and kisses and lots of rear end scratching. She has started to show her age and the gray hair is coming in. I told her that was fine mine was showing as well.
Her son Valentine. He normally will always let me love on him... unless his Mom is walking off...
You can't get left behind. He is such a baby... even though he too is getting older.
And then there is Ted E. Bear - our official greeter -
And the boy is McLaren or as hubby has nicknamed him "P1" - LOL
It just cracks me up - they move, jump, attack and play a million miles an hour and are too funny to watch. And then in a flash they are all passed out and asleep -
After I took these photos I went out with a wet paper towel and washed all their faces. I guess playing outside they are pretty close to the dirt and man their noses and faces were nasty. Each one after I washed and removed the dirty chunks from their eyes and noses sat and bathed themselves all over... Tuxedo may be a feral cat but she is a fabulous Momma and has been teaching them all they need to know! Well we are teaching them that we are safe and they can trust us. I think Tuxedo knows that too... oh and Shadow has actually let hubby touch him a couple of times.
I think Gato would have loved watching them too -
Hope you have a very blessed weekend - and please love on a furry friend. They need it and it is good for you as well!
