CFFC: Legs and Feet

My cat Hazel loves to sleep on or between people’s legs! In the winter, she prefers a cozy, warm blanket to be covering the human’s legs.

If she’s very content, she’ll take a cat nap with one leg stretched out.

Sometimes she needs to have her claws clipped! Two people (at least) are required: one to hold her down and one to use the clippers.

WPC: Dinnertime

Meow! I’m Hazel and I love dinnertime – that is, HUMAN dinnertime!

I’m kind of bored with my own food, but there is always something that smells much better that my humans eat. So when I am hoping for a tidbit from their table, I sit in a very nice, polite pose, looking up at them. I sit up with my front paws together, very straight, and my tail curled behind me, like this:

My begging expression is meant to entice my humans to give me something:

Hurray! The male human is reaching down toward me with his finger – and something delectable is on it! I get nearer:

He wants me to eat the piece of meat right off his finger, but I don’t like to do that. Please put it down on the floor, I say by looking down. He insists. I might bite you, I think. But he doesn’t give in (the female human always does) so I approach, sniff, take a tentative lick….then another, and finally the morsel is in my mouth! I chew, swallow, then I’m satisfied, so I walk away…maybe to see what’s in my own food bowl.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Treat

Meow! I’m Hazel, and I love party treats in fish and chicken flavors! All I need to do is sit next to my empty bowl and look up at my humans with eyes that say, “Please give me treats!”

Hazel, 2015

Here are some recent shots of my beautiful cat, Hazel.

January: a beam of afternoon sunlight illuminated her just right to take these artistic photos of Hazel mostly in shadow.

Yes, it’s an Oriental rug, which used to belong to my mother – quite expensive, I’m sure! But Hazel is a kitty with exquisite and expensive tastes!
