Flashback Friday with Yoko

This is me when I was a lot younger (I will be 17 this year) in Florida. I love to burrow under blankets and get all snug. Can you find me on the chair?




Here I am...I am a good hider huh? Chica used to always pick on me so I got real good at finding out of the way hidy places to get way from her. Sometimes I would even go up on the top shelf in the closet and snuggle in the sweaters!




Thanks to all of you who came by Darby's Gotcha Day Party the other day. We had so much fun!

Mom wants to tell the rest of the cow cat story - about the little black and white cat she drives by on her way to town. You all thought she should go ahead and send a note to the older man who lived with the cat.

Well she got a card and the address and was about to mail it when Pop told her he thought he saw the cat one day about a week or so later. He said he looked all dirty and rough looking. She didn't mail it, in case she was wrong and kept looking for the cat. The box and all the trappings on the porch were still gone.

Last week she drove by on her way into work on a warm day and the inside door was open to the glass exterior door and who should she see sitting inside looking out but cow cat! Yay!!!! It seems they took him inside after all these years.

Maybe he disappeared on an adventure and when he got back they decided to make him an indoor cat. His buddy still comes around and they do let cow cat out during the day sometimes too. She is so happy that he is OK even tho she won't see him outside as much as she did. Thanks to all who wrote comments and supported her idea of writing to the man. She is glad there is a happy ending!

Yoko, you are VERY good at hiding! We had to biggify to find you in that chair.

As for cow cat...Wow, we're glad he's back and is okay! We thought the worst, of course, and are thrilled he's home and inside!

Yoko, you look like such a tiny little thing, that I imagine you could hide almost anywhere. It did take me a good long while to locate the lump that was you under the blanket!

And hooray! Well, I guess you delayed for good reason. Isn't that wonderful, after all this time that Cow Cat would be taken inside! As you say, maybe they were worried that they lost her, and finally realized how much they loved her. I love happy endings, too.

You sure are a cute little lump under there, Yoko! Hope your beans didn't accidentally smush you!

Very good news about cow kitty! (Deep sigh of relief for the beans at Wildcat Woods I'll bet!)

Hi!! You are a good hidey spot finder... I like to hide sometimes behind blankets like that, too...but just because! I don't do it for any reason really...it just feels fun...I pretend I am in a whole nother place!! We're cats...we can do that!! You have a great day and so glad to hear that there is a happy-ending to the cow cat story!! purrs, Tiny (Lautrec is sleeping so I finally got a chance to get on the computer) (Weezdabadcats)
