Flashback Friday.

Our Flashback Friday couldn’t have been better timed with yesterday’s daily dose of dogs (aka cats with your coffee) sharing our Winnie’s Wish brick story. Go have a peek if you have a minute! Thank you, Chrystal!

Forgive us for the quality of these photos. This is all we have of our first bobtail kitty, the first boy kitten we picked out together back in 1989.

We weren’t terribly original with his name – Bob, it was, but we loved him fiercely. His terribly short life taught us never to trust those big name pet stores and the importance of adoption over sales.

Though it’s been so many, many years, we’ll never forget you, Bob.

It’s been nearly a year since our second bobtail boy left us. Our comfort cat Seth won’t soon be forgotten either.

A short flashback to… yesterday! Zuzu is healing well from her spay surgery over the weekend. She’s quieter and not getting up in everyone’s grill like she used to. And she hugs daughter Viola a lot now. We like the more mellow Zuzu, but that’s not to say she doesn’t still rip it up pretty good when she gets to playing! We love these bobtail girls!

  1. It’s always good to bring out the old memories. And we are so glad that Zuzu and Violet get to keep each other.

  2. We didn’t know you had bobtail cats before. How wonderful that you opened your heart to two more in need.

  3. Sweet memories. Glad all is well with Zuzu after the surgery. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  5. What a legacy of bobtails and a wonderful way to commemorate them – Seth had the most mesmerizing eyes. Glad that Zuzu is doing well post-spay and I love her photo with Viola.

  6. I didn’t know your history of bobtail kitties went so far back! I hope remembering Bob today made you smile more than feel sad.

  7. Enjoyed your flashback. Seth was certainly a handsome lad. So sorry we never knew him. Zuzu and Viola are so precious together. Viola is growing up so fast. Any word on her sibs? Have a great weekend. Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  8. oh, mom’s eyes got wet when she saw Seth’s picture… We hope he is having a fun time romping around with our Angel brofurs and sisfurs!

  9. A great history of past kitties you loved so much and the present that you love so much and all in the future that you will love so much. Cats are so easy to love.

  10. We didn’t realize you had other bobtail kitties. They were adorable. Gone but not forgotten…and always loved. Thanks for sharing.
