well so much for JC the 'feral' cat.. I am laughing at this pic... so sweet. i am so glad you have excellent help with your mini zoo ranch.
This is Johnny Cash Cat? The oh-so-feral cat? Hmmm....
What a ferocious cat. He Could NEVER be in anything but a barn! Or maybe a lap...If I scratch and bite and hiss, can I come and live there, too?
Johnny CashCatis is one happy content guy :)
I enjoy your blog and photos. So glad you are getting better and have someone to help. Love the super relaxed Johnny. Makes me wonder how he got in the barn cat program. Maybe so he could find you!
Aww, bless Johnny, he is a cuddley ginger boy just like mine. He looks like he could take a lot of that!
From " unadoptable" to this. You've come such a long way Johnny! Love you
Look at that comfy boy! He's really fitting right in to his new life. :)
luv luv luv Johnny! I am a fan
Johnny: "Been dreaming about this all my life ... Me, feral?"
Aw, look at Johnny. He's been just biding his time, waiting for the right circumstances to move right in and get some snuggle time.
This picture is so beautiful. This is what trust and love look like.I'm thinking there are probably similar expressions on your faces, Carson and Danni.
Glad to hear that! Johnny Cashcat is a sweetheart!❤
What a shot! Everybody needs a cuddle every once in awhile. And they said he was feral....ha!Best always,
Whoa ... is that Johnny CashCat snoozing in the arms of the help? Holy cow ... That is so sweet to know he has gotten so comfy with everything and everyone ... except for the long ears, maybe ... and he still keeps his distance from Smooch!!Glad you are on the mend! Hugs from CO ... Marcia
Terribly, terribly feral cat. It's just awful what feral cats will do to you. Like....steal your heart. Glad he's making Danni feel welcome. :)
well, I'll be Dannied.
Great ~ and welcome home by the way !
You are a fortunate woman to have such friends who love you and your crew. Johnny Cat was just waiting for that special person to come along and snuggle with him. Sweet.
So, where is Smooch during this interlude?Apparently JCC has figured out 'the deal' at 7MSN :)M in NC
Life is good at 7MSN! :)
Next shot .....Johnny Cat sleeping on your bed !
Am I the oldest person on this list who remembers this song:All the girls are crazy about a certain little ladAlthough he's very very badHe could be oh so good when he wanted toBad or good he understood about love & other thingsFor every girl in town followed him aroundjust to hold his hand and singOh, Johnny!Oh, Johnny Johnny!How you can loveOh, Johnny!Oh, Johnny Johnny!Heavens above, way aboveYou make my sad heart jump with joyAnd when you're near I just can't sit still another minuteOh, Johnny!Oh, Johnny Johnny!Please tell me dearWhat makes me love you so?You're not handsome, it is trueBut when I look at youI just, Oh, Johnny Johnny Johnny! My!da-da-daJo via the Andrews Sisters!
Sweet photo. If he hasn't already, he'll make friends with Smooch too. We had a cat like him, Tigger, who showed up at the farm one day after being dumped and lived with us until he died of old age. He was box trained and became one of our inside cats as well as out during the day. Never had a more loving cat ever and with zero temperament in Tigger's case. The kids could bundle him into a doll baby carriage.
Thanks for my morning smile! Johnny Cash Cat obviously knows what side his bread is buttered on. I just hope he knows he still has to earn his keep as security guard / anti-rat patrol at the barn. :)
Yep! As everyone else said, JCC was just posing as a feral cat until he could find the right home - and now his true personality has come out! When I was a kid we had a cat who looked like this - we named him Casey. He could be aloof at times, but he was a real snuggler. My sister and I snuck him into our double bed and he learned to sleep down at our feet, under the covers, in case Mom came in to check on us.Now he's keeping an eye on you, Carson!Nancy in Iowa
That picture says it all! You made my day .. now it's time to give all my 4-legs a big hug and a snuggle, if they're willing :)Maggy
Oh my. So touching. One of Johnny's dreams has come true! Although, I do think it's highly likely that Rancher-Woman "secretly" has been holding Johnny before... Btw, with two animal whisperers at the Ranch right now, it should be a cinch to formally introduce Johnny to Smooch, so that peace and harmony may reign when they start sharing the house. (just couldn't resist!)
How did that happen? I haven't seen any pictures of him being held or on a lap. Did you try to make that happen or did he decide to make it happen? I guess Johnny didn't get the " don't get attached" memo.
to "Jo's World": I must be older! Now the song will be an "earworm" with me all day today. hahahaIt is so nice to see feral cats given good barns to patrol. I wish that Manx had stayed long enough here to look like this pic of JohnnyCashCat. She was a beauty.
AWWWWWwwwwww!Too bad June didn't stick around to partake!
Oh my stars....Johnny is such a fortunate soul. What a darling photo.I suspect that he either has done this before with an unnamed cowgirl or Danni did her "the cat wandered into my place and they adored me immediately" like Chester and George at her place, thing. Whatever the reason....omg this is fabulous for Johnny.Me thinks that this photo tells the hearts of the woman involved even more than the cat. Love you animal lovers, Oma Linda
Remember a few months ago when you said Johnny was feral and you wouldn't get attached to him? YNow we all love him and the photos you post of him! Danni must be like Dr. Doolittle. Mom has a "feral cat" who now insists on sleeping with her at night and rules their home.
Todays blog says we are even spoiling a spoiled cat that was not supposed to happen what is next?
Dad and mom trying this Comment thingy out again -- with our picture?
Johnny stole my heart the minute I saw him. I'm so glad to see him getting loving. He's a sweetheart and a great hunter too. And, OK, I admit it, I actually said AWWWW out loud when I saw the picture. AWWWW!
Aww. He must have really missed you!
Glad to hear it! :)
Warms my heart to see a formerly feral cat converted to a lap cat.
Oh my goodness! Is that your lap Johnny is snuggled in? Ahhh...I'm so happy he is so content! :-)~~Cheryl Ann~~
