Camera Critters 55



Camera Critters



Today my Camera Critter post is in memory of
Musashi.
May 1990-April 25, 2004



I've posted about Musashi's Garden before here and here.






Whatever he could get himself into, he used as a toy.



The dining room table wasn't used for dining!





Majestic kitty he was.



Ruled over his staff wisely and with love.




Followed Mom from room to room.





Read? Nope. Rub!



Ceiling Fans ... hmmmm.




Friends.
Musashi with his buddy Quinn (who passed at age 16).




He had his own basket.





He started off small.
Had to be bottle fed.
Grew to be a big, beautiful boy.

We miss you Sashi.

Peace

Mushashi was a gorgeous cat! I know you miss him. Love the baby photo. My Squeak was a bottle baby and has grown into a BIG cat. He's now 9 years old.

What a cute cat he was, :) You must miss him a lot. Pets change our lives forever, don't they? They give us their unconditional love all the time and make everything fun.

Thank you muchly for your visit. I'm fascinated by sunflowers - They are the happiest flowers ever (my opinion!)!!!

Wishing you all the best. Kisses!

Aww such a gorgeous kitty. Love the purposeful look he has on his face following you from room to room. They all have their own special little corner in our hearts.

Thanks for stopping by

Aw. Great photos of a wonderful pet. I love that picture of him in the paper bag. everything about pets is wonderful except that they don't live long enough and we miss them so much when they're gone.

Animals have a special place in our lives. That second shot is great.

Beautiful cat. In our house it is the same, the nicer I make the table, the more the cats want to sleep on it! We have four cats, but soon we will be having to find new homes for 3. It breaks my heart.

The flamingos were CHATTERING up a storm the day I took my photo. There was definitely something going on that day amongst the member of the flock!

I can see why you honor him. Oh but they can still make us cry.

I am so tearfuly happy that you loved Mushashi and he loved you back..what a nice post, that is making me cry because I loved a Tabby named Mike Madiosn Cat and it does sneak up on me to think of how I do miss him sometimes~
Thanks for stoppin' by today to see my Longhorn that you may get to see more often than I where you live! I love them..they are so cool.

What a wonderful tribute. Very adorable photos.

J said...

Wonderful photos - his character shines through. The one in the paper bag is priceless.

Janet said...

The photos are all great but I especially like the first one....peeking out of the bag. Cats are so cool! He may be gone but he will always be in your heart.

DrowseyMonkey said...

Aww, that was such a lovely post and I love the one of him in the basket. I have 3 cats - they really do get inside your heart and stay there.

Grammy said...

Musashi was adorable. It is not easy to loose special members of the fam. I know how it feels. We had 3 and when the last one went. I was not going to get another. Then Crash came along and I fell in love and now I have 2 Reba tugged at my heart too.

Dirk said...

Very nice pictures, I'm a cat lover so thanks for sharing!

Skittles said...

He was a beautiful kitty and judging by the pictures, not camera shy at all. I'm sorry for your loss.. because as a pet owner, I know we never quit mourning the loss.

Kim Mailhot said...

Oh, he was so beautiful ! I have a big tabby too - Aslan, or Azzy or Poo-poo Head as he is known around here. They do bring us so much, those glorious kitties, don't they ? So glad for the lovely memories you have for his furry, wonderful life.

Denise said...

Sashi was a beautiful kitty and this is a lovely tribute to him. Such great images. I love the paper bag one, and also the one where he is getting his head scratched. Great expression on his face. All your photos are great!
