An Old Favorite

I've more than likely already used this photo in a post.  I'm just too lazy to look back over Orbit's entire blog to check, though.
     Of the gazillion photos we have of the little old guy I think we probably have dozens of him on our shoulders, a place he'd always loved to be.
     This picture is one of my all-time favorites.  I'm not sure why, but I just love Orbit's expression.  If we look close enough the backs of some of our shirts still contain the tiny holes from his claws as he hung onto our shoulders.

Mom has lots of tees with holes too :)
We like that pic because it shows a happy kitty.
Remember, Orbit was happy with you and he had a wonderful life.
Headbumps to you both.

Gosh, how my Chucky looks just like Orbit! I tried the over-the-shoulder deal with him this weekend; I should have worn an ear-plug on that side because that's all Chuck did was yell to get back down! Ouch! Glad he didn't put his grappling hooks out too, otherwise I would have been in bad shape! You know Orbit is still riding on your shoulder, right? He's just not as heavy now. Cool pic!

I like what Eastside Cats said about Orbit on your shoulder. What a wonderful thought.

About This Blog

Created in July 2011 this blog chronicled the everyday life of a well-seasoned house panther named Orbit, who made the move with us from Massachusetts to North Carolina. He was a nearly constant companion for almost 22 years, and ruled our roost until he passed away in December 2014 which hit us like a ton of bricks.
After more than 2 years without a live-in feline friend we found this senior Tortie gal at Orange County Animal Services in Chapel Hill, NC and just couldn't leave without her. Cleo certainly came with an abundance of purrsonalitude, and has staked her claim on our hearts and in our home since day one. It took some long, deep thought, but I decided to pick up where Orbit left off and let Cleo tell her stories. Of course from time to time I'll add some non-Cleo posts, but she'll get over it.
