Big Yawn

My younger son sent me this photo of his cat, Doodles. Doodles was contentedly lying on a lovely, new, white sweater, looking adorable. Just as my son took the photo, Doodles yawned. Thus the result. He has unusually long teeth and claws for a cat. I know. I watched Doodles at my house for 8 months, and inadvertently got scratched many times. But my son rushed himself to the doctor when Doodles slashed at a vein in his wrist. Meanwhile, after a late night dinner with my brother and sister-in-law last night, I have had several big yawns myself this morning.

@DianneN I can't sit on the couch without at least 4 asking for pets. I have one that things he must accompany me every time I go to the bathroom.

@nanette64 Lol, Nanette! I had a dog and three cats that all followed me in at the same time, but never my husband. They never let me out of their sight. What's up with that besides the fact that they liked me more? Fur babies are precious!

He can be intimidating, when he's not being a sweetie pie.

That is a really unique shot, and it shows off the cat's long teeth. Doodles looks content as he wakes up.

He has been very good at my son's house so far, unlike last year with the spraying. Staying at our home did him a world of good. No more stress. I miss him.

@DianneN I thought that it sounded like you are missing him. Our son sent us a text with a picture of Ellie last evening.

@DianneN I love cats, I get scratched sometimes by the cat of my neighbor, but it's because he wants to show me how much he loves me.

I see he made himself a nice resting place in that box. Are you sure the owner of the sweater wanted him to move and that was his reaction LOL

Lol! That white sweater in the box belongs to my son's girlfriend. It was probably tweed when she took it out to wear.
