    I want the “Finch” for lunch and the “Cardinal” for dinner. LOL

  2. Dr. Lee Fratantuono says:

    For those so inclined, “Classical Cats” is a fine study of the cat in classical antiquity I can highly recommend.

  3. Patikins says:

    What a handsome kitty…and I’m not even a cat lover!

    All Hail Tiberius!!!

    A comment from my elderly puddy tats who are past the years of catching birds….
    “If you catch them we’ll clean them.” :)

  5. Kradcliffe says:

    That is a very nice-looking cat!

  6. Melody says:

    To be Catholic is often to be a cat-holic.

    For example…

    Hey, a cat can look, can’t he…

    (Sylvester often sits on the arm of the chair behind me when I’m on the computer, and now I think I know why…)

  8. Irish says:

    Oh, I love grey tuxies! He is quite handsome. Snorgles.

  9. Romulus says:

    If he’s in grey, it’s more of a morning suit, really. Very dapper kitty.

  10. Immaculatae says:

    He is handsome and looks very intelligent. I love the new camera
    angle on the birdZ feeder, FrZ. Looks like he does too !

    Maximus, Trajan and Pandora say hello from Boston.

  12. Boston Architect says:

    Keturah and Melchizedek also say hello from Boston.

    Keturah (a four-year old dilute tortie) put me through quite the steeple chase around the next door neighbor’s yard the other night as I attempted to separate her from a baby bunny that she had selected for dinner. Fortunately I was able to catch her and bring her inside for a more civilized meal of crunchies.

    Melchizedek was born Thursday 2 June 1994, the Feast of Corpus Christi that year on the Roman calendar. He is even black and white! AT nearly fifteen his hunting days are behind him, although as an alpha male he still fights off other cats in the neighborhood – and oppresses Keturah. They do not get along at all.

    Hey you guys – the names are a hoot! I’m amazed at Fr.Z’s names for everything – makes things interesting. All I have is a Michael and a Moses.

    What a beautiful kitty!

    Hey…does Papa Benedict’s Chico know about this?

    Melody-I saw the EEVIIL kitty pic-very funny! But those cats look kinda ugly to me-IMHO.

    Love the names….all Hail Tiberius!
