I love cats, always have. Much prefer them to dogs.

I had some lovely photos of my son and his cat when he was little.

GrammaMack said...

Wow. How much does that creature weigh? Sweet baby boy, but...wow!

Fred Butler said...

You named your cat after a Harry Potter character?

Hhhhhmmmmmm.

Just don't let it steal the baby's breath.

Rupert, I'm a convert. Used to hate cats; now I love them.

Gramma, the big furry creature is about 13.5 pounds. The little bitty one is more than half that... but not a lot more.

Fred, three of my cats are named after literary characters:
Hagrid
Rosie Cotton
Lucy (Narnia, not Peanuts)

I love cats, but I'm forced to admire them from a distance, because I'm allergic to them.

My dear, sweet wife just thinks that cats are creepy. :(

Sir Aaron said...

I like both cats and dogs. Both have pros and cons. Unfortunately, I don't have a dog because it would be unfair to the dog. So I have to live with this cat, which is nice for the most part.

He likes to get in trouble and is deceptive with kids. He cuddles up to them until they do something (like pull his hair) then he'll bite (not too hard but enough to make a kid cry).

Barbara said...

Wow. Now that's a cat.

DJP said...

And Barbara the great thing is that he is just the gentlest, sweetest old galoot you could imagine. Paws the size of dinner plates, sweet as a sugar cane.

What GrammaMack said. That's either a wittle peanut of a baby, or a mountain of a cat.

I had a professor at Master's who used to argue that cats were just snakes with limbs and fur.

VcdeChagn said...

What's even scarier is that the cat looks amazingly like Hagrid.

Very cute pic. I think it's about time for a new one in our household!

Baby...not cat. Two cats is enough for now.

The Squirrel said...

That's a huge cat!

I like cats, Mrs Squirrel likes cats, but Mrs Squirrel and Daughter Squirrel have cat allergies. So, no cats here.

But, others also find cats delightful, or so I'm led to understand...

That cat doe NOT look 13.5 pounds--more like 23.5 pounds....

(My friend had a cat that was over 20 pounds. I had gone over to my friend's house one day many years ago, and as I waited for her to come out so that we can go out for dinner, my eyes drifted toward the corner near the door--and a big black fuzzy BALL with eyes stared at me. "WHAT is THAT!?" I exclaimed. "That's my cat," said my friend, picking him up in her arms. I don't think I've seen another fat cat like that since--until your pic today.) :)

You have to factor in a lot of fluff.

At first glance, I noticed how BIG Timothe seems to have gotten. I thought, "Man, he's almost ready to start walking; wasn't he born just last week or something?" And I also took notice of how RED the blanket looks, especially against your blog's blue background. Then I read the comments. THEN, I took a SECOND look at that ENORMOUS cat. WOW. He's a big boy!

RealityCheck said...

The cat has the size but the kid is stealth. Notice that, while "supposedly" posing for an innocent photo, Timothe manages a knee to the side, an elbow to the shoulder and even a hair pull.

Way to let em' know who's the new boss in town kid!

Paula said...

Reaching....for.....the....Ach...Benadryl....choo!

Wasn't there a recent H & T story about 'cat eats woman' or something along those lines? Might want to get little Timothie his concealed carry permit if you're going to leave him lying around with that beast!!

Wow, this my kinda blog!
