The theme if this week’s Photo Hunt is missed. So for our combined Weekend Cat Blogging and Photo Hunt post, we present Morty:
As one can see, Morty was a rather smart cat, and like some other individuals we may know enjoyed his coffee and newspaper every morning, and kept his cell phone nearby. Though it does appear that Morty enjoyed the department-store ads more than the news.
The cell phone definitely dates this picture, which I’m pretty sure was taken in early 2002. Seen in comparison to the current iPhone, it is definitely not missed. I still have that coffee mug, which I had originally gotten from a used store when I first moved to California several years earlier.
Morty was actually the first cat I lived with. He was a rather impish character, always getting into mischief but also seemingly aware that his cuteness would prevent him from getting in trouble. Even though he often drove me crazy, I still miss him once in a while. (As far as I know, he is still alive and well and still making mischief.)
Appropriately for a post featuring a tabby cat, Weekend Cat Blogging #310 is hosted by the “three tabby cats in Vienna”, Kashim, Othello and Salome.
Photo Hunt 265 is hosted by tnchick. This week’s theme is missed.
The Carnival of the Cats will be hosted this Sunday be Samantha, Clementine and Maverick.
And the Friday Ark is at the modulator.
