My cousins

Momma visiting her aunties in Chicago and northern Wisconsin. She's sent me some pictures of my cousins whom I've never met.

This is Diva, who lives with Aunt Betty Jo. She is a very sassy panther. She likes to play with catnip mousies and she attacks Nutmeg, the big golden doggie.
This is Susie Q, and she's a real old girl now. She's 18, I think. She has great white toes and a white smudge on her nose. I think this makes her look very distinguished. I wish I could meet her, but that would require riding in the car...




This is Smokey Joe. We have the same middle name! He's a big-boned guy, too, like me. He's a little crotchety these days, though, because he doesn't like the big puppy dog. She's real doggie-ish, not a cat-dog like Coco, and he doesn't like sharing the living room with her. I can understand that. Big bouncing dogs can really interrupt a good roll on the floor.

This is my cousin Ted, who lives with Auntie Susan in woody Wisconsin. He's a real old guy now, about 17, but he still goes out and patrols the yard. He's got a great lion mane!

I'm glad Momma sent me pictures of my cousins, since I'll probably never get to meet them in person (the whole car-sickness thing makes visiting family a problem).

It was nice to meet your cousins, Jimmy Joe. Sorry to hear you get car-sick. I actually like riding in the car!

Thanks for introducing us to your cousins! They seem very nice. But I don't blame you for not riding in the car to meet them. Because you might end up at the V-E-Ts by mistake.

You have great cousins. I sympathize with you on the car thing. Most cats don't like riding in cars.

There is another Diva? I'm not sure how I feel about that...

Nice looking cousins, Jimmy Joe! Thanks for introducing them to us! Will your Mom be home soon? I know you miss her lots! We don't like riding in cars either.
Your FL furiends,

Smoky Joe is a very very big cat. He would scare me. My Lady's boyfriend has a huge kitty, he is 19 pounds. I am terrified of him. I am only about 8 pounds myself.

Hi Jimmy Joe!
Thanks so much for stopping by and introducing yourself to us. It's such a BIG Cat Blog Sphere!
Mosaic Lady is already in love with you 'cuz you're built like a 'rastler. She has a fetish for "big boned" boy cats, and orange and white boy cats, so you are pretty much like crack to her. Do you mind? Much?
