Cat on a tree

IMG_20220624_212545.jpg

It's strange how things change with time.

IMG_20220624_212625.jpg

Small, unnoticed events change everything. Or big events that we try to cover up, to hide ourselves because we can't stand them.

IMG_20220628_225847.jpg

I'm looking at this photo shoot of Assencho, the All-Seeing Eye, because I promised to show it to you and I wonder where this kitten has gone.

IMG_20220628_230011.jpg

Oh no, he didn't go anywhere, unlike his sister. He stays at home, in the garden.

IMG_20220628_231013.jpg

He is the guardian of the house, so to speak.

IMG_20220624_212442.jpg

We call him the guardian of the house, not because he really guards it, of course. 😄

IMG_20220624_151529.jpg

But because he stays at home and doesn't go anywhere.

IMG_20220624_151440.jpg

He lies on the doormat in front of the door all day.

IMG_20220624_151355.jpg

Or sleeps under an evergreen bush next to it.

IMG_20220624_151253.jpg

He is always around.

IMG_20220624_151138.jpg

No matter what time of the day it is.

IMG_20211103_160934.jpg
("Look mom, I can hide behind the branch tree and you will not be able to see me.")

I know that when I get out of the house, I will always find him.

IMG_20211103_160917.jpg

I never have to call him when I prepare food for them - in the morning or in the evening.

IMG_20211103_160913.jpg

Which also means I don't have to worry about him.

IMG_20211103_160907.jpg

Because he is so cowardly that he is afraid to leave the yard of the house, unlike his two brothers.

IMG_20211103_160859.jpg
(Do not think that it was easy to focus this restless cat, constantly jumping from branch to branch and standing so high above me.😄)

Yes, I know we've already talked about how cats change after neutering. How male cats change. But today it is not just about that.

IMG_20211103_160852.jpg

Today, looking at these photos, I wonder where this playful kitten went. Where did Asencho go, who always ran around the garden and jumped on all the trees, on the bush, slept on the thorny bushes, climbed on the roof of the gazebo, etc.

IMG_20211103_160848.jpg

Where did they all go - all three were crazy cats doing mischief.

IMG_20211103_160826.jpg

Nowadays, Assencho no longer climbs trees. None of the three of them flies (runs) like mad in the garden.
I can't do such a photo session of him anymore.

IMG_20211103_160817.jpg

And it turns out that this is not because he has been neutered.

IMG_20211103_160813.jpg

It turns out that he already was neutered, when I took these pictures.

IMG_20211103_160809.jpg

So, after the neutering, he was still a playful kitten.

IMG_20211103_160749.jpg

On the other hand, his brother Blacky, our garden panther is not neutered, but he too stopped climbing trees and doing mischief.

IMG_20211103_160745.jpg

And looking back, I realize that neutering is not what has changed the behavior of these cats, strange as it may sound.

IMG_20211103_160742.jpg

What changed them was the disappearance of their sister.

IMG_20211103_160740.jpg

This disappearance seemed to make them more meek, more cautious, quieter, more careful.

IMG_20211103_160737.jpg

Or rather, she was the one who encouraged them to do pranks, as she was the bravest of the four.

IMG_20211103_160734.jpg

Whether this is the case or not is not clear.

IMG_20211103_160731.jpg

But the only thing I'm sure of is that nothing is the same since she's gone.

IMG_20211103_160723.jpg

And will never be.

IMG_20211103_160722.jpg

All that remains are the photos to remind us that everything was once different.


Happy #CaturDay to you all, cat lovers! 🐱🐈💛

Although some cats are quite naughty, especially the brats in my neighborhood, I still find them adorable. Looks like Assencho has mastered the art of acrobatics in the niche of climbing trees. 🤣 And I could also imagine your posture of glancing upwards often when capturing photos of him. Must have been a challenge right dear @soulsdetour? 😁

Oh, there's a lot to be said about cats, who are always very cheeky and masters in manipulation, yet still adorable. 😄 I don't know how they achieve this, but it is clear that their race is superior to ours, or rather, more powerful 😁
Yeah, it was quite a challenge to photograph this kitten climbing so high up. And not only - constantly moving, jumping from branch to branch. I'm even surprised that the phone still managed to take most of the photos decently 😻

Or maybe it's because they've grown up? often adult cats become lazy. 😀 and maybe someone saw their sister and he liked her and he took her to live in his cozy house. it happens!

Ha ha, that's my last hope, but I doubt it, given the place where I live, full of stray cats 🙂
As for the male ones, I didn't think a cat ever really "grows up" in terms of playfulness. As well as the fact that they never lose their hunting instincts and continue to chase anything that moves in the garden, edible or not.
