The King by pergamjee The King by pergamjee
Slush ... as in "snow that has begun to melt and is therefore very wet and dirty". About 14 years old. Male.

When we first took him in, he was really dirty. After bathing and drying, still looked like he had dirty smudges. Hence that name. But his colouring darkened/deepened over the years and his name was no longer appropriate. But he had already learned to respond to it, so what the heck.

He was about ten when he came, and the younger ones all looked up to him as "king". And what a gentle and protective king he was. Anytime one of the youngsters got into any trouble with bullying toms in the neighbourhood and screamed for help, he would go flying to the rescue.

He was their king, and also their surrogate mother. Because the youngsters were orphaned kittens, they still had nursing-fixations and they would often attach themselves to his tits when he's lying down!! He would endure it patiently for a while before getting up and moving off. He never cuffed them or anything like that. Poor Slush had to walk around the neighbourhood with the enlarged tits of a nursing mother!! And he was such a macho cat too, even after neutering.

For the story of how he came to us ... Baby's Got Blue Eyes by pergamjee

oh my goodness! why wasn't this in my message inbox?! dA must have been having glitches again .. this is not the first time it has happened! Sorry for not replying earlier.

 

I always did love these little purple flowers, but I didn't know their name ... until :iconFlaviaRogue: told me that they are called "Erica". This boy is  very macho, but the flowers do look good with him, don't they? :D:D

 

Thank you so much for stopping by to leave such lovely comments! :huggle:

Thank you. He had a good long life, and he was very much loved by the young kitties ... so we are not sorry. We feel so blessed that he chose to spend all these years with us ... he was a very special being. Yes, requiescat in pace ... you are the first person who has used this original Latin phrase for "rest in peace" ^-^

Hey, when you want me to stop giving you links to my cat pics, please just tell me "parada!" ... it's ok, I don't mind!

Do you have any cats now?

Sadly, I have lost most pics of him during a move years ago. All I have are webcam pics.

I have no cats right now as I'm planning to move to another city, and I don't want to put this kind of stress on a cat. Once I've moved and settled in, I'll visit the local animal shelters. ♥


Macho cats are adorable!

ah yes, that's sad! :(
That's the reason I have been uploading old pics to dA at such a pace these past few months ... I would hate to lose these old pics for whatever reasons! You may be able to see the date-stamp on some of these pics ... and they date back as far as 1992!

oohhh ... yours was a b-i-g boy! What did he weigh-in at?

Yes, that's a marvellous idea! Since you don't have a cat and you are planning to move ... And I so support your idea of adopting from the animal shelters! We are not supporters of the animal trade ... when there are so many stray/rescued cats out there waiting for good homes, there is no reason to buy one (I know some people will hate me for saying this).
