Tiggs’ Housemates: Cory and Co

For those who don’t know my resident cats, I thought you might like a look; for those who do, I thought you might like new pics of them. Angel, the only female, foster-mom extraordinaire to orphaned babycats Trick-or-Treat, the resident clown and massage-therapist Cory, aka Cory-Bear, who understands nothing but love and friendship and playing Original post blogged on b2evolution.

Angel’s Sweater Moment

This may look excessively dark on some monitors, and I apologize.  These are hard moments to catch her in with a camera at hand, since they’re much less frequent these days.  I have some misgivings about posting something once so very private for her, but since she’s far less secretive these days, I think it’ll be okay. When Angel first came to us, she would steal sweaters in the middle of the night and drag them to a more private place to hold them in her teeth, knead vigorously, and purr at astounding volume. If we caught her, she’d abandon…

Morning With Cats

Twenty minutes before the alarm is due to go off, I wake up to find my face being exfoliated vigorously — er, washed with much love and dedication by Angel, who typically sleeps on my pillow.

Angel’s Lessons

I stopped in the bedroom to check on Cory and pet him for a moment; Angel came in just after me, and Cory promptly abandoned me in favour of her. She patiently washed him for a minute or two, while he tried his best to wrestle with her — her fur is so thick and long, I’m not sure how much his teeth and claws really get through! As you can see from the videos, she is willing to wrestle, although no matter what it looks like, I promise, she’s not hurting him. At the end of the second video,…

Cory with Angel

Says a lot about the relationship between these two, hm? Loki and Trick get grouchy with Cory sometimes (they do not and would not hurt him, though), but at worst, Angel just gets up and walks away from him, no matter how rough he gets sometimes when he wants to play.
