One of our new neighbors is a young female kitty that we call "Pippa".
That is the name of my next cat (if I ever get one).
It has been cooler the last couple of days so the windows were open and Bumby finally got an eyeful of the friendly Pippa.
Pippa is often laying on our sidewalk or in the middle of the street (!) when we come home and she likes to come and visit.
Gorgeous eyes and coat!
And make herself at home on the yellow bench on the front porch.
Bumby was not amused.
I see you trying to make nice with that trespasser!
But not necessarily hostile either.
After all she has experienced in the last six weeks,
why would a little Pippa bother her?
Pippa trying to bite my camera. So that's what cat lips look like...
It was a sad day for bloggers yesterday, especially in the "animal-blog" world. A much loved and admired, "relentlessly huge", presence was unexpectedly lost yesterday when Mango the Mastiff crossed over the rainbow bridge. "Mango Momma" gave this beautiful dog and his little brother, the "labradude", Dexter, a voice through their blog.
Although he is gone, how wonderful that his irrepressible spirit lives on through the archives of the, now retired, blog
and Youtube too, of course.
Hugs to Mango Mama, Master and The Pea.
And thanks for always making me laugh, Mango.
