Annie is the matriarch of the feline family... she's an old trollop... a stray that the old man Winter Cat brought home one day and left her here in our care while he went off again on his merry wild tomcat way. She was a wild woman and the old man dropped her off barefoot and pregnant. I don't know where she had them, but when her kittens were just about weaned, she brought them in through the cat door one by one and left them. She'd sneak in during the dead of night and nurse them and take off again like a rocket if she heard anyone move about in the house. Anyway, long story short, one day she just decided we were okay and weren't gonna eat her and she moved in to stay. Now she's royalty around here and is full of cuddly, snuggly appreciation. She's also getting senile in her old age and plays the roll of jester as well as queen.

This morning as the sun streamed through the window she decided that the terrarium I had just cleaned out looked like a nice cozy sun-room. The opening into the glass case is only about three inches wide. Annie is fat. It took her several minutes and a lot of determination but somehow she finally squeezed in. She was quite pleased with herself until she decided she wanted to get back out again! LOL! I tried using the video on my camera for that spectacle but it turned out too dark to see.

That is one of the cutest fat-cat-in-a-small-place pictures I've ever seen. :)

God, I love these photos, this cat. This post about her and the blog itself. I'll be back!
