Friday catblogging redux

It’s the triumphant return of Friday catblogging, featuring another picture of furball number one, Shiva.

One of the great things about cats is that they are the undisputed champions of the chillout, as demonstrated in this picture. As long as that food bowl stays magically full and the litter magically gets cleaned on a regular basis, it’s all good. And when it’s superplusgood, it’s time to display that stomach.

To paraphrase the song, Damn it’s good to be a furball…

It’s good to be a furball

As shown in the picture, Shiva’s most interesting physical feature is how her fur is actually white at the roots, then progressively fades to black as it grows longer.
