Things on Cowboy’s Head (Summer Replay Edition): recycled bowl made from discarded plastic bags. 🙂

Things on Cowboy’s Head column is taking a break this week. Things will be back to normal soon, but in the mean time, here’s an earlier piccie with a plastic bowl on her head.

Why? Just because. 🙂

Things on Cowboy’s Head: Guest Post

diablo2_rev

Here is DB (or, on a less positive behavior day, Diablo). She is also a rescue, and just showed up one day and decided to hang around. She was pretty feral for about two years or so, but after a concentrated effort of teaching her that we weren’t out to kill her at every opportunity, she has chilled out enough to hang out inside with Cowboy.

Cowboy is Diablo’s best friend, and I’d argue that Cowboy Cat is the only cat to fully “understand” Diablo’s rather complicated personality. DB’s a good cat, but after living outside in all weathers and being chased by almost everything in the neighborhood, she understandably has a few issues although she does trust me. No sudden movements or loud noises, and follow her lead in how you approach her, and you should be ok.

(DB almost snuggled with me the other night. It was like trying to snuggle a rather nervous tiger.)

She’s come a long way and we’re glad she chose us to be her Forever home.

Things on Cowboy’s Head No. 192: Plastic funnel.

Background Note: Cowboy is one of our cats who showed up out of the blue one snowy January day seven years ago. Since then, she has made us her Forever Home (which works with us). She is big and friendly and doesn’t suffer fools gladly. She naps a lot (Olympic-level) and she eats a lot.

All of these points are helpful with this project that I have going on…

It’s called “Things on Cowboy’s Head” and I am just seeing what I can balance on the top of her head when she’s amenable to that. It’s been fun so far, and she seems quite happy to play along. (She just moves when she doesn’t want to participate.)

Superhero happens to be a big on-line computer gamer, and as part of that, named one of his spaceships “SSN Cowboy”. Snort.

Things on Cowboy’s Head – Guest Post

fergus_pot_ignoring

(Above) – Fergus Cat studiously ignoring the tall human being hovering right behind her whilst she’s in her flower pot on the front step. She is, clearly, an expert at CAT-ting.

This is Fergus, one of Cowboy’s room-mates. Fergus is as sweet as can be, until you cross her (in her eyes) and then she has a very hot temper. If there is ever some misunderstanding between the kitties, you can almost guarantee that Fergus is in the mix somewhere.

She is also really chatty (lots to say), and likes to pretend to be feral and disappear for a couple of days, and when she’s had enough of that, she turns up on the door step and comes in to sleep like a log for about 20 hours.

She’s a sweetheart to the humans though. 🙂
