cats: tomcat cuddles edition

20220407_075938

[Major Tom, a big grey tabby, is meatloafed ona bright quilt, right next to a wood-paneled wall. His eyes are half-closed and he looks very content.]

All the humans here have been working our butts off, but the cats are mostly still serene. It turns out that having one cat who actually LIKES moving (that’d be Loiosh) helps the rest of the cats in the house deal with the usually-traumatic process.

cats: Tom goes rolling edition

[Major Tom, a big grey tabby with a pale belly, is rolling in the dirt. He’s mostly on his back, one forepaw tucked, head flung back to display his white chin.]
