Harris Is Alarmed

Harris is a brave (and entitled) little guy but he didn't like the sound of my electric hand mixer in HIS kitchen the other night. A less courageous cat would flee, but Harris chose to confront the danger — up to a point. His safe distance was a few inches beyond the kitchen threshold.

In these photos he is glaring with widened pupils, and was on the verge of puffing up his tail fur and being hissy-growly, but I talked him out of it.

I guess I should do a lot more baking so he gets accustomed to it.


  1. The Hubby sneaks off the grind his coffee beans behind a closed door, just to mute the sound in an attempt to NOT frighten Angel and Chuck. That man LURVs his kitties!

  2. Harris's face is fantastic. A mix of curiosity and utter disgust! It's bittersweet seeing Harris and his gorgeousness, he reminds me so much of my beloved Dudley. Dudley passed away at the end of July. He made it to 15 and I wasn't ready to say goodbye. He had cancer in his jaw and it was devastating, we'd known since Easter he would leave us at some point.
    I really didn't want to get another cat for a long time, but there are a lot of cats out there who need love and a good home. So I gave in, and we welcomed Henry Nuno McGinty into our lives. I'd absolutely forgotten how much hard work and trouble kittens were! He can never take the place of Dudley, but he is worming his way into my heart just the same. Cats. The world would be a poorer place without them! :O)

    1. Thanks for writing, Sadie. I'm so sorry about Dudley. "Devastating" is the right word to describe it. Most of our cats are here because of the heartbreak of losing other cats; I've been thinking about this a lot since I wrote the other day about adopting Possum. I've found that adopting two is sometimes necessary after losing one . . . and two kittens require less-constant attention since they'll play together and keep each other company. Just sayin'


Unless you are spamming me about, say, Skype, I love getting comments and do my best to follow up if you have a question. I delete ALL spam, attempts to market other websites, and anything nasty or unintelligible. The cats and I thank you for reading — and please do leave a comment that isn't spam, etc.
