Mr. Tootles thanks you gabriel, dagwood, UncleDavid and lei for the birthday wishes!
gabriel: Joey is a very handsome looking 11 year old!
That photo was taken with a film camera and I just had my twin sinister scan it in so I could post his baby picture. Now you see why I couldn't resist adopting him once he looked up at me and purred.
Sorry the photos were large; I'm having trouble cropping with this computer.
My kitties aren't bothered by the big fireworks display from the river valley although we can hear them. But if anyone shoots them off in the yard close to us, I'm the one who gets nervous! Sometimes neighbors use firecrackers and they sound like gunshots!
I feel very badly for any animals that get terrified by fireworks or thunder. I can't imagine what they are thinking is happening.
