55/366: beautiful bartholomew in the tub

An old friend gave me a half barrel to use in my garden in 1991, but while I was still deciding what to do with it, my beautiful ginger cat, Bartholomew, or Barthy for short, decided it was a very nice spot in which to relax.

My cats give me so much pleasure, and Barthy was extra special because we got him after I had a miscarriage in 1986, that he certainly helped me through. He has been in Cat Heaven since 1999, but at least I still have some lovely photos and memories of him.

  1. Awww, he so reminds me of Ashley’s cat…..Tomas A. Jefferson Hall.
    But, we just call him Tom.
    And a cute pic Sandi…..with fond Memories of him, I am sure.

  2. Reblogged this on princessprattles and commented:

    Before our current cats, Shadow and Zorro, we had Bubble and Barth. Our ginger boy was very special, and it was so sad when it was his time to go due to kidney failure. So here is my first in a little series of re-blogging some of my favourite posts.
