Mr. Patriotic Himself

Just recently I got a new Nikon Coolpix camera with a 26x zoom on it and all kind of fun features.  The animals have been my target of "practicing" with my new camera.  I happened to be sitting in the front yard the other and my cat Moo sat down by the practice time!

In all honesty, Moo is NOT loved by my family members. He bit my niece and nephew, my sister hates him for that; he slaps the sheep in the face if they get too close; he has bitten Dixie on the nose; and yes, he bit me once when I went to get the remote that he was laying on.

BUT, he has this attitude about him and well, this pissy cat look to him. Moo came on to the farm when a neighbor threw him out as a kitten because she got a puppy and liked the puppy more.  Of course, one can see how rational this former neighbor was.  Moo is now 10 years old and is healthy and full of piss and vinegar.

And he just made the best cat photo for me! 
Attitude and all........Mr. Patriotic Himself!

Wishing Everyone a Safe and Happy July 4th!!!

I can relate to animals that are ornery. My mom used to have a violet point Siamese that ate her clothes, blankets, etc. She would be wearing a sweater that was all ragged on the hem and I would ask if Tigger had been at it again. She would say "yes" and follow that with, "but he's such a good boy!" Two different former owners wanted to put him down because of this habit but my sweet mom rescued him. It's just how we are, right?

Happy 4th.
