Saturday Snapshot - November 10th - Grandcats



Saturday Snapshot

Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don't post random photos that you find online.


My son and his wife adopted this (3) month old kitty last week. He is the new cat on the block joining, Psycho (below) one cute very senior cat (BELOW)


Psycho joined our family almost (20) years ago. He was only about 5 weeks old when he was found at near a dumpster. He has lived with my son for the last (16) years. Psycho's slowed down a bit, lost weight, and lost his hearing, but he still acts much younger than his age.  After a few days of hissing at the new addition, things are much better and the new (3) month old seems to be good company for the senior citizen while the humans are at work.

  1. Oh, how adorable! They're both gorgeous!

    My own rescue cat died a couple weeks ago - he was only about a year old. We don't know what killed him but we miss him and his little bell every day.

  5. Too adorable cats! I'm partial to black and white ones since our cat Oreo was one of my faves. After his passing we never replaced him.

  6. What a lovely little kitten cat - our ginger tom looked just like when we first had him, and he was very inquisitive, and got into all kinds of mischief - but he's grown into a great fat monster! My Snapshot is at http://goo.gl/CQuKI

  7. They are both adorable! I love seeing beloved cats, as they always have had the best of care and feel part of the family. Great name, Psycho. There must be a story there!

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

    1. "Psych" was so tiny when he was found and afraid of his shadow. As he became more comfortable, he was just very jumpy and the name seemed appropriate - he did calm down as he aged and turned out to be a sweet cat.

  8. I love the looks on both their faces! The new addition has that playful, kitten look, and the older one has that...well...psycho, old cat, I'm set in my ways and how dare you challenge the status quo look :)
    Glad to hear they're working things out!

  9. 20 years old is quite old for a feline and Psycho still looks terrific! The new addition to the family looks cute too. Does he have a name yet?

  10. I think a little hissing was certainly called for, but glad to hear they're getting along now. The kitten is just adorable.

  16. Awwww Psycho will probably feel younger with a little kit around!

  17. I am a 'cat person'...I love their attitude and loyalty to their favored people ...I love having kittens around the house. I love their sense of play and their mad dashes and unlikely toys --- yours will have a time getting to know each other!

  18. They both look like sweet kitties! I can't believe how old Psycho is - I've never had a cat live that long. Great that he's still goes strong!

  25. The newest addition is adorable! I swear, I once did not appreciate kitties (I know!) and now I could own more than the two we have. Have my eyes been opened to the wonder of cats.

  26. Oh so cute! And I love the name Psycho for the elder.

  27. Sounds like they should switch names! HAHA! I'm sure it is huge adjustment but I'm sure they'll work it out.

  30. Cute kitties, I'm always amazed that two cat co-habitate without killing each other, especially and old one and a young one. Good luck,

    ReplyDelete
  31. Both kitties are adorable! Glad they are getting along. Wish mine would.

  32. I LOVE cats. I think I like them more than dogs, but sadly everyone in my family (besides me) is allergic. My husband even maintained weekly shots for me to have my sweet Olivia (my favorite cat).

    I hope you are well - I'm hoping to find more time, or make more time to keep up with everyone. I did post twice this weekend!

  36. Love the newbie and Psycho. Sounds like Psycho has lived a full life and it's great he's accepted the little one into the fold.
