Sebastian



Well, it is just about impossible to get pics of this feline. He does not like the camera. Does not want to pose. Does not like being still if you are desiring him to.
And he knows!!!
Sebastian, otherwise known as Sebby to those who know him best...started out life as a feral kitten of a feral mama. He and his siblings got trapped under a shed in a neighbor's back yard. My four adventurous kids went over to help the widow neighbor because she thought she had some baby bunnies under there...but no! Kittens!!!!!!
Two of the kittens went to a neighbor and Sebby stayed with us. And we already had kitties, and needed another one like we needed a hole in the head. Specially this porker!


Turns out the father must have been a Maine Coon, cause that little tiny kitten turned into a HUGE 22 pound CAT! He is almost 7 years old.


He is our BIG and Dumb and Friendly Cat...Will walk right up and bug the tar out of you til you give him some attention, even trusts strange dogs... durrhhh!

Here is a fuzzy pic of him by a coffee table sized piece of furniture to let you see how big he is...


Well, today I just thought I would highlight this big boy since I always talk about my dawgs. So this is his one day of glory in BlogLand.

That's right Sebby. Do your Tiger Roar!! You are on WWW!!!
(Of course I didn't take that last pic...only Kat can take great pics like that...!)
Hope you had a great Monday! Hugs to all.
Thanks so VERY VERY much for praying for our military over there giving it all they got....!

You know, I used to love cats when I was young, but I must have outgrown that. Maybe it's because of my allergies from them (bad), but I am not fond of them any longer. Ha. But...that doesn't me I don't enjoy looking at YOURS! ;)
Thanks for sharing...he is a big dude! We used to have one that was furry like him, and I really liked her best. They can make good friends.
Love ya gal!!

My daughter brought me a picture of a Maine Coon (didn't know what it was) - they're really pretty and fluffy looking.

Sebby is a big guy! He sounds like a sweetheart.

Oh My gosh!!! Julie, I love the cat, I am a cat person, and I have always wondered why my cat is so tiny and skinny? he eats good, sleep good, so I just don't know, =).... and Yes! I go by Cotty, is short for my name Cleotilde, my dear Father named me after one of his dear aunts... Cachanilla is a plant in Mexico that only grows in Mexicali, where I was born, so people from that area are called "cachanillas" that's the story behind my blog name, jiji, a little way to never forget my roots, ;)...

Take care Julie, I'll be praying for your Parents and your Marine...

Blessings...

Cute Sebastian! Love all of the pictures, even the ones you took:) That is one BIG cat and beautiful too! Have a blessed day my friend! Praying for our Marines always!

His name isn't Sebby. It is "The Hudge". :]

What a great cat!! :-)

I think I'm behind schedule here...but WOW what a beautiful cat, Julie! I'd take Sebby in a heart beat. I love our Border Collie, but I'm really more of a cat person.

Hope by now you've gotten some more of those letters that Justin has written. You know he and your family are in our prayers!

Thanks for stopping by yesterday and visiting for a while. I know how precious your time is right now with your parents needing you. I know they both appreciate all you've done and are doing for them.

Take care....hugs to you, my friend.

We have a big ole black cat like that - we call him Fathead, even though his 'real' name is Mocha. I'm a cat person. :-)

Hope all is well in your world.
