Mickey Pics!

I promised someone I'd take some more pictures of Mickey before he left. (Which is not for a few days, by the way. Mom's coming out today, and will spend some time here getting to know the little guy before leaving with him on Monday.) He's still hard to take pictures of because he moves around so much, but I made a few attempts.

Here he is chasing his tail, which is hilarious to watch (although slightly less so in still photo form):

Here he is looking very cute in a (slightly) sneaky hiding spot:

X-Treme Close-Up! This is Mickey trying to eat the strap on my camera:


  1. Fierce camera-eating cat!

    He's lovely. I hope both he and your Mom will be happy with him there.

  2. He is fierce, indeed! He's also a mighty hunter of bugs. As I told me mother, sure, she's taking the useful cat. None of the others got the memo about how they're supposed to be doing vermin control, apparently. :)

    And I hope they will be happy. I bet they will. He's a sweetheart, really, and I know she'll take good care of him.

  3. Somehow, in my grad school induced exhaustion, I read "donkey pics".
    Mickey is much cuter...and much less disturbing :)

  4. Hee! He can be stubborn as a donkey when he puts his mind to it, I guess. :)

  5. So is he still running from Mom?

  6. Sort of. He's not acting seriously afraid of her, but he is kind of wary, and he won't come up and let her pet him. He's more likely to just take off. Poor kitty. I think he'll get over it, though.

    Will post an update tomorrow.
