A Sit in the Shade - PostCardArt by 

Here’s my sweetie, PurrKeeper sitting in the shade in the Bird Garden .. he used to be a terror when it came to chasing birds but now in his advanced age it seems he enjoys just watching them flit from branch to branch … he likes to follow me around the garden when I’m filling the bird feeders and turning the water on/off during the day … (big smile)

15 May 2012: PurrKeeper being over 20 years old and in poor health went on to kitty heaven to chase the birds and wait for me to be with him again … R.I.P. my sweetie … broke my heart .. will miss him so …

    What a sweet looking cat in a perfect beautiful garden to explore and to shade from the sun!

  • He is so precious …. I built the ponds and garden not only for the birds but also a place for him and my other furry friends .. living on the high plains there are few trees .. we’re blessed on the property .. I built the garden beneath some of them .. shade in the hot summer for all and cold running water at least once a day (smile)

    Great looking kitty, I haven’t seen coloration like his. Cool how dignified they become in years.

  • I shall be brokenhearted when he goes … in his younger years he was way bigger .. but as he aged his fur thinned out and he got skinnier .. when I lived in New England (MA and RI) I saw Maine Coon cats like him .. the color of his fur has also softened through the years …. he’s still King of the House but he doesn’t insist on it anymore … his kingdom is peaceful and happy (big smile)
