Opie’s 11th Birthday at Home

Opie’s 11th Birthday at Home is just that–a post about Opie. It is the 11th trip around on the trolley. The two boys get most of the publicity around here, so Today we celebrate Opie Day as it is her 11th birthday, but Scooby somehow refuses to stay out of the picture. Oh, well. Scooby loves Opie, but the feeling is not mutual. She has got her own “Fortress of Solitude” which is a sleeping bag draped over a wooden chair. Food is regularly delivered there. It had to be upgraded because Scooby kept hanging around peeping in. Photos inside the fortress are prohibited. Opie was brought to me as a kitten–an offspring of two feral cats. Here are a few photos of MISS Opie around the house.

  1. Opie looks more gray in the last pictures and more brown in the first ones. A trick of the light. But a beautiful cats in all pictures, no doubt.

    Opie is lucky to be able to get out. I always thought cats who can’t go out are missing out on something, although sometimes that’s necessary for their safety. And I love watching cats in nature, among bushes and grass, in their natural habitat.

    Scooby is a very polite cat, walking with a harness. I’d once tried putting one on my cat, and he got out of it in less than two minutes, and disappeared. Not to mention all the scratches and bites I got when putting that harness on him. He did come back hours later, of course. But I never tried this harness again.

    1. Opie was grey when she was young and got brown hair when older. I lightened the photo where she looks grey. Some cats like harness and more hate them. If a cat won’t have it, that’s probably the end. Thanks for your comment 🐱


  2. Happy Birthday, pretty cat! Why does Opie wear a leash while you run free? Hope you have a warm, sunny day out there. I thought we were getting an early summer in Northern California, but the weather guy says this weekend we’ll get clouds and temps in the 40s—again. Take care.


  3. Have a very purrfect birthday Opie. Your as gorgeous as ever…..don’t tell Scooby I said that.😻 Such lovely photos im glad you’ve a nice place to get peace and quiet when you choose.x😻💜🐾
