1 Small Bean and 3 Farm Cats

Hello, Friends!
Sorry we haven't been blogging much.
Mommy had a friend and her 2-year-old son visit us from Singapore
so we were busy showing them a good time.

Bronzy and I were kinda nervous being around the little bean at first.
It was, after all, our very first time meeting such a small human.

I gotta say...
I don't quite understand the little bean yet.
But we did end up sharing the bed quite nicely.

Here I am calculating the odds of the little bean falling off the bed.

On a visit to the Collingwood Children's Farm, Mommy met some very interesting farm cats.
Let me introduce them to you!

This Calico is a most exotic beauty.

Her left profile looks totally different from her right!

Wouldn't you have thought that she was two different cats?

And in my opinion, this handsome grey-and-white is one lucky kitty...

Because he has the largest, most amazing, eco-friendly litterbox in the world!

 Just look at all that pooping space he has among that luscious green!

Bronzy and I are totally "green" with envy.

But the most interesting kitty on that farm is this one.

When Mommy first saw her, Mommy noticed right away how strange she looked.

Both ears and a bit of her nose were gone.

 Mommy thought that she must have endured some horrific abuse or accident from before.

To find out more about her, Mommy asked a farmerette the reason for her appearance.

 It turns out that this lady cat is a skin cancer survivor.
To save her life, the vet had to remove both ears and part of her nose.
But it was all worth it as she is officially cancer-free!

She now enjoys a great deal of attention from visitors to the farm.

During lunch time especially, she works her charm to the max!

And she never fails to get rewarded with delicious snacks.

One of Mum's "before us" cats got a small amount of cancer on an ear and the vet told her to put high factor suncream on ears and noses if they were light coloured. It's a good thing that farm cat's cancer was caught early - she looked a real cute girl.

What a great place to takes little peoples. Mommy has a cat that had no ears when she was little. Sid had frozen them off when he was abandoned in -40 weather.

Slash, you did pretty well with that little bean. Moosey and Sammy would have probably been UTB! :)

We loved the beautiful pictures of the kitties at Collingwood Children's Farm. It looks like a wonderful place.

Great job and we really enjoyed meeting the farm cats and we are so glad the cow kitty is cancer free.

That is a very cute tiny human! It was very nice of you two to be so friendly. Scarlett does not tolerate strangers, tiny or otherwise, but I'm not sure what Melly would think..

Kat and the Furrsonality gang said...

Those are some very pretty farm kitties. Then again, you are a very pretty kitty, too!

Clooney said...
