A teddy bear in waiting
It's a known fact that Rosie and Rufus' mother is black - I've seen Rufus moving closely with her. But it's often a much greater mystery as to who's the father to kittens. I therefore had to bring my camera around to the park where I found Rosie and Rufus as I one day saw this gorgeous teddy bear (you just want to snuggle with him). It seems he is among the more lucky of town cats as it appears that he is well fed and in a rather fine condition - everything taken into consideration. He is calm, friendly and has that element where you just want to bring him home - just a real presence. As you can see I had a sweet reason for wanting to capture a few images - no one (and there are MANY cats in that park) looks anything like him and when it comes to the question of who has fathered Rosie and Rufus (well Rosie in particular) there can be no question!! Even where the white and grey meet on the paws - the curves, coloring and lines are all the same.
Well Rosie started out real calm in life but has now realized that there is such a thing as feeling super charged and full of energy and she is turning out to be a real little kung fu master. Rufus is willing but even he is ocassionally a bit overwhelmed by his sisters new found super powers! Rosie has tripled her weight in 5 weeks and still going - she loves food. Rufus has settled well and loves cuddles - and loves that meals gets served with frequent intervals throughout the day! They both love the company of all their new brothers and sisters and all of them can often be found snuggling tighly together when it's time for naps. There's something so sweet about how these rescue cats accept each other - maybe something in them knows they share a similar destiny?
Anyhow... maybe Rosie will level out at some point and become a calm presence as her father but for now it's just terrific seeing this girl charging around!
