Cats on Tuesday - Curious and Curiouser - August 18, 2015


Recently, I went over to visit my friends, the Toscanos, with whom I have lived on two of my previous visits to India. They have a menagerie of cats and feed and provide a wealth of love to litters of strays and wounded felines around their compound, even having some spayed in hopes of helping control the cat population.

Their resident cats didn't adore me but tolerated me and provided me, always, with a wealth of photographic opportunities.  One, Eddie, was the nosiest cat I've ever met, always investigating all my purchases, peering into boxes and bags.  I was always afraid that, one of these days, his curiosity would get him into trouble!!!

I had been on a shopping spree at Bandra's famous Bazar Road the day I visited so I was armed with an assortment of bags which Eddie resisted for about a second.  



Hey you, I want to see what's inside here!!!


Let's see...the neck rub might do it!


Maybe I should try to attack this striped bag....


Finally making headway...but my left foot is caught..good thing I have 9 lives!


Eddie gave me a scornful look, finally gave up and, worn out from his efforts, stretched, then took a nap.

I am participating in

  1. I've always loved the different personalities of cats. My second favorite animal to dogs. I had a small herd of them myself many years ago. The dog used to herd them around as if they were sheep.

  2. That is hysterical, Ratty. Here in India, I'm afraid, people don't take kindly to cats..or dogs. Too many litters are drowned or killed. The Toscanos deserve a medal for their charity. They spend their own money to feed strays and to have them medically treated, neutered, etc.

    I loved watching the different personalities of the four I lived with for the two different times I stayed with the Toscanos. I'm more a dog person, myself, especially bigger breeds. I really love my two granddogs.

  4. Eddie is so cute. He does seem very interested in the contents of your bags. How funny. The Toscanos are wonderful people to do that for all the kitties.
