Claws of Tranquility

Little kitty cutie pie
kneading claws in to my thigh
when the bleeding stops I’ll be
living in tranquility.

  1. It reminds me that I need to make an appointment to take my Diavolo to the kitty parlor for a pedicure. They clip them down just a little bit and it makes all the difference in the world.

    1. This is a Maine Coon cat. Wikipedia says:
      “Maine Coons are the largest breed of domestic cat. Males weigh from 15 to 25 lb (6.8 to 11.3 kg) with females weighing from 10 to 15 lb (4.5 to 6.8 kg).[18] The height of adults can vary between 10 and 16 in (25 and 41 cm) and they can reach a length of up to 48 in (120 cm), including the tail, which can reach a length of 14 in (36 cm)[19] and is long, tapering, and heavily furred, almost resembling a raccoon’s tail.”
      The only rival is the Ragdoll cat:
      ” The Ragdoll is one of the largest domesticated cat breeds … A fully-grown female weighs from 8 to 15 pounds (3.6 to 6.8 kg). Males are substantially larger, ranging from 12 to 20 pounds (5.4 to 9.1 kg) or more.”
      I’d say, this one is rather a Maine Coon, the more so since they are the Maine-State-cat – and Maine is not too far from Canada. They are rather typical for that region.

      1. It has to be worse than trying to give a cat a pill. You can’t just roll the cat up into a thick towel and hope that the pill goes down before the towel is in shreds. πŸ™‚
