After Garfield has had his breakfast, he LOVES to stretch right out and purr up a storm! He always makes me smile when I find him like that - it's as if he's saying "Now THAT was good" I love it even more that when he strikes this pose, his racoon style tail is bent so far forward with happiness that I think one of these days I'm going to find it actually touching the top of his head! *L*

We just went through a breakout of chin acne with him as well. At first I couldn't figure out what was causing it, but then I realized that the drinkwell water station that our boys have been using for awhile (we purchased it in the States last year), was plastic and that it was likely the culprit. So, out it came and in went a stainless steel water bowl - and voila!, the sores have completely cleared up!

Otherwise all is well! Rocky has completely adjusted to Garfield and yesterday they were caught napping together on our bed. As I type this, Rocky has just found his way onto the arm of the chair that Garfield is laying in, so it would appear that his adoption is imminent since Rocky's final relenting with any foster is usually right before their forever family comes to get them! *L*

Happy Saturday everyone!! :))


  1. Glad chin acne is gone by changing the water bowl. We use drinkwell fountain and it's plastic. I prefer stainless steel or ceramic (I tried once) but one of my boys just love that drinkwell fountain. Glad it doesn't cause any health issue to my boys. Garfield is such a sweetie :-)

  2. Oh Garfiled! Is your forever family just around the corner?!! Keep us posted :)

    the critters in the cottage xo

  3. great pix of the boys ... my guys use a drinkwell water fountain, thankfully no issues but now you have me thinking ...

  4. I love it when they start allowing proximity to other cats. It's nice to see the slow evolution of, if not friendship, then companionship.
