Saturday Snapshots #77


Phoenix – August 2008

I don’t miss a lot of things about our old house.  I don’t miss the relentlessly blue carpet with no discernible underlay.  I don’t miss the poky kitchen and its minuscule cooker.  I don’t miss the creaky bed and its tired mattress.  But I do miss our lovely neighbour and her gorgeous, funny, affectionate, crazy cats.  You’ve already met Troy and Ronaldo – now meet Phoenix, who has a good measure of Norwegian forest cat in his genes.  He is a beauty, and he also knows how to open doors, including the fridge (a habit that does not endear him to his owner!).

This is part of a series of non-food photographs that will be published every Saturday on CookSister. All photographs previously featured may be viewed on my Saturday Snapshot archive pages. Many photos featured in Saturday Snapshots are available to buy as high-quality greeting cards or prints in my RedBubble store – feel free to browse. They make great gifts for friends, family, or yourself!

    My mother’s favorite, even more prized then her three daughters, is her cat Sonia, who looks just like Phoenix’s long lost twin sister. She’s not nearly as smart as he sounds though, so she must rely on her looks to get by :) I love your picture, he looks very regal.

    Gorgeous pic! He looks very like our cat: christened Freddy, he now is only ever called Fluff. He’s also a great character, but luckily hasn’t learnt the door trick!

    That is a fabulous photograph of Phoenix! He’s a beauty. I love cats. I’m housesitting in Washington state (USA)for about ten days and three Maine Coon cats are my charges (along with sheep, chickens and ducks) and I think Phoenix looks a lot like these cats!!
