Cats in South Africa

Felix and Tigger relax on the pool table

I just had to post this before I forget. While home in SA a while ago, I walked into the entertainment area to find Felix and Tigger resting on the pool table. (Note: we have a special wooden cover over the pool table with a tablecloth covering that. Else there would have been no pool surface left after all these years with cats around!) As for the two cats in question, they looked so sweet that I took a number of photos of them. When I downloaded the photos, I noticed that Felix (who's eight years old) has almost no teeth in his mouth. I made a quick change to the shopping list: ALL cat cookies are now "For Senior Cats" So Felix is able to munch gummily on the new cat cookies. As far as I could ascertain, Tigger who turned 16 on the 1st April, and Chip who is 12 years old, still have most of their teeth. If not, they also benefit from the cookies for senior cats! 


  1. Ooh, no teeth. Poor sweetie. Well, our old cats had to have a lot of dental work done, so Felix has saved you at least one veterinary bill.
    Thanks for mentioning me in your blog earlier. It's okay about the link, or lack thereof. Fret not.
    Luv, K

  2. They do look like happy cats! I'm sure the cookies taste great to them whether they're easy to chew or not! Fun post for the day, Jo!


  3. Oh! Poor kitties! Yes, there's soft munchies out there for the Senior cats..Hope they all can now enjoy their treats!

  4. I once asked my vet how cats without teeth could eat the rather hard cookies, and she told me that the gums become so hard that they can even eat a mouse ! Lisa who died 2 years ago had no teeth and she ate the dry cat food when she was hungry during nights.
    It seemed logical to me because not all cats have a good life and have to catch mice and birds even without teeth. Your SA cats look so cute on that table !

  5. Your senior happy cats sure are purr-ty, Jo.
    Thanks for making me stop and smile awhile.
    Cheers :)

  6. I'm glad all the cats can now enjoy softer kitty treats! I guess Felix isn't doing a lot of bird and mouse hunting these days, poor fella.

  7. Fun post and cute kitties.

    Darryl and Ruth :)

  8. Great photos, Jo. Just think: when you move back 'home' ---you'll have 3 more cats to add to the group!!!!!
