Almost every evening, Alfred comes for a cuddle with Björn.
Freddy sits right up next to Björn whilst he uses his laptop.
The thing is, he looks a right goon when he does it.
Of course, Freddy looks like a right goon most of the time. That’s just part of his charm.
Ultimately, he’s just a big lovable guy.
We love him so much.
This is the fourth installment of posts about Alfred’s family. I was lucky enough to get to meet both of his parents, all of his littermates, and some other relations as well. Today we meet Alfred’s father and his cousins. Last week’s post is here.
Freddy’s father is an absolutely stunning ruddy named SE*Maghreb’s Snusmumriken. Of course, his father’s awesome ruddiness is also part of the reason why Freddy is so dark for a black silver Aby.
He is also a poser, like Jacoby. He knows how handsome he is!
Snus is also super friendly, which has definitely rubbed off on our Freddy.
He’s also brilliant with kittens. Which is lovely; not all tomcats are.
Especially when the kittens aren’t theirs! These cute sorrel babies are actually Snus’ sister’s kits.
It reminded me a bit of watching lion cubs play with the big male lion.
Those cousins were pretty adorable, too. Either playing alone…
(Hey! Be careful!)
The cousins were also supremely adept at posing, just like their father.
But it was so much fun and such a special opportunity to meet so many members of Freddy’s family! Not often you get the chance to do that.
Because Björn is in Sweden, and I’m in the States, we spend a lot of time communicating online via FaceTime.
Sometimes, this can lead to some amusing photos. Now, these aren’t exactly “selfies,” I know, but…
…Abys + FaceTime can lead to some pretty hilarious photos!
This week’s Photo Hunt subject is “Elegant.”
Abyssinians are widely considered to be one of the most elegant breeds of cat.
No, I really AM serious.
Look, you can even Google it.
I can hear you laughing, you know.
I can still hear you.
Oh, now you’re just hurting his feelings.
Whoops…almost rolled right off the bed there…
Yeah, all right.
So maybe I don’t have the best example…
Because “Jacoby with a Finnish cat toy on his head” didn’t have nearly the same ring…
Ha ha, get it? RING? Because it’s one of the crocheted rings that Sanna sent us…oh, all right.
I put it on Jake’s head because I could, and because it was made of metallic gold thread, it looks like a little crown. Sort of.
Heavy is the head that wears the gold crocheted cat ring toy?
This week’s Photo Hunt subject is “Mystical.”
Throughout history, cats have been associated with mystical powers.
You see that all the time: Cats are mystical, mysterious, magical.
Yeah they are.
They totally are. They’re absolutely other-worldly.
