Qatteri Cat in the Pensacola Sunshine

Haven’t done a shot of the Qatteri Cat for a while, and I am always getting requests. He is sleeping with his Dad (AdventureMan) right now, keeping him company while he takes his JetLag Nap.

Here’s a shot from earlier in the day. We get the early morning sunshine, and the QC takes his morning sunbath, watching the world go by:

He is losing a little weight, slowly, the way the vet recommended. When you know how many people in the world are going hungry, it is obscene what a Diet Cat food costs. 😦 The QC now weighs under 20 lbs; this is a good thing.

This is a tiny little Qatteri street cat, found wandering, cold and hungry, with an eye infection, on the Corniche in Qatar about 7 years ago. We have promised him no more long airplane trips; it was just too traumatic for him. But – that was yesterday. As long as the sun is shining and the Qatteri Cat is warm, hey, life is good. 🙂

    • LLLLOOOOOOLLLLLLL! Daggero, there is no where having a pet costs so much as in Qatar and Kuwait! It’s like owning (and maintaining) a sports car!

    • He is starting to get bored. At first the hotel life was scary – all kinds of unknown noises, doors opening and closing at odd times, he was seriously challenged. Now – he’s getting interested in running out the door, he is so bored. God willing, we move into the house soon. The painters are pretty much finished, the electricians have put the light fixtures up, got the dimmers all installed, and we should be in, Insh’allah, in a couple days. We are SO ready.

  3. Well now that is news! I haven’t been here in ages and now you are in the States.

    So Qatteri Cat has become QC the Americani cat now 🙂

    Best of luck to you all and I hope you all adjust and find joy in your move very soon
