My friend Ivar, who makes excellent pottery, took this picture of Hades, & I think it sums up both Hades’ natural magnificence, & also his truly spectacular talent at getting himself ENTIRELY TANGLED.
In any case, I usually don’t take a lot of Hades pictures because he’s a longhaired black cat & pretty often winds up being a fluffy blot, but I got a LOT of good Hades pictures this Battlemoor.
In a WIDE variety of exciting circumstances. For example, this was his first trip in a golf cart.
He was kinda worried, but as usual when I have both him & Loiosh out somewhere, he looks to Loiosh to find out if a thing is safe. Loiosh has had plenty of golf cart rides, so Hades was thus assured that it was Just Fine.
He & Loiosh spent a bunch of time snuggled on my spare chair, even when it was pretty hot out. I don’t know?? But they were happy.
They were holding paws. <3
They got to see a friend again! Morpheus was a tiny scrap of ferocious black fur last year. Now he’s HUGE.
Loiosh is pretending to ignore him, but check out the ears. He knows perfectly well Morpheus us there, & he is Not Okay With It. (photo by Morpheus’s mom.)
I had sewn this lovely backdrop for the booth, & I’m glad I sewed the ties on REALLY well, because Hades climbed the back of it several times, & once made himself a hammock using the backdrop & my chair. I had to sit catty-corner for like two hours, because he was where my head is supposed to go.
All in all Hades had a really good War. He’s pretty much used to the whole ‘living in a tent’ concept, & he LOVES having so many people visit him.
Also he is VERY patient, & that’s a VERY good thing.
This was posted originally to my Patreon, a little over a week ago.
If you want to see these posts sooner, & not incidentally help support me & my cats in our travels & such, the way to do that is to sign up as one of my Patrons for as little as a buck a month.
I’d REALLY like that.
