This is Leroy–the king who guards the door.  He’s from Indonesia via a yard sale in Portland where we purchased him for $10, a ridiculously low price for such a noble beast.  It was love at first sight.  Take a look at his eyes.  img_2727

The remaining cats are of a gentler sort.  The next few are from Oaxaca.




Then comes Minnie, my Siamese girl, sleeping with a cuddly velvet friend I found in the gift shop of the Art Museum in Vancouver.  I bought Minnie in the Berkshires 19 years ago when we passed by a sign that read “Siamese kittens for sale,” and my heart started pounding.  She’s still going strong, with a set of vocal cords that makes a fire alarm sound quiet.
