Things on Cowboy’s Head No: 189

Things on Cowboy’s Head No. 190: Apparently the bedroom was a little too bright for the princess during her daytime nap. 🙂

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.)

Cowboy Impressions

Cowboy Cat doing her very best impression of a beached whale.

We have been adopted by a large and very sweet cat we call Cowboy (who is a girl. Roll with it.) Her name derives from the fact that she is a bit *odd-looking* (said in a whisper so as not to hurt her feelings). She has feet that face outwards (pigeon-toed?) and bowed legs (like old cowboys can be after years of riding in the saddle – thus her moniker) and is HUGE.  I weighed her yesterday – twenty pounds huge.

She looks a bit like a Mr. Potato Head in that she seems to be made up of various unconnected pieces from other cats all joined together in one body.  However, she is extraordinarily gentle, very sweet and generous with her purring.

She is very tough when she needs to be and is happy to put Avi Puppy in his place in the home pecking order. She also does a very good impression of a beached whale. And she loves the (mostly) indoor life spending most of her time taking 20-hour naps in preparation for her next meal.
