Furry Friday: Guest Furries

This week’s Furry Friday post is brought to you courtesy of my Mummy. These two fine specimens are her boys; both Siamese; Merlin is the silver seal tabby point, Billi the chocolate point. (I’m sure if I’ve got those wrong she’ll correct me in a comment… *hint hint*)

Merlin and Billi; siamese cats

Sure, they were expensive, but they’re not as gorgeous as mine… ;)

    "As gorgeous as yours" of course they are, they are boofuls. Merlin is a seal tabby point, no silver in that bit, other than that you are spot on Jem.
    AND our boys never so much as glance at Christmas trees :p

    I’m on 1024×768… Surely that’s wide enough?

    Oh, purty! I used to have a cat who was part Siamese. She looked much like Merlin (strabismus included), but her face wasn’t so long.

    Is the white cat with blue eyes (Merlin?) deaf? :3. A vast majority of white blue-eyed cats are.

    He’s not really white, he’s grey/silver, but the photo has dodgy contrast. Anyway, no, he’s not deaf… except maybe to calls of "no Merlin, get down!" and "no Merlin, you can’t eat that" :p

    Siamese! Those cats kind of scare me. Too thin.

    Also, I absolutely love your new background. That’s probably really why I am commenting…

    Aww, look at them all cuddled up with each other. They both are very handsome! The one with his eyes open, Merlin, his face reminds me of a lions face, but smaller! XD

    Cute! I found and had a Siamese kitten for a while but he ran away! :(

    I love the background you’ve added, astronomy ftw :3

    Your mum’s kitties are just too cute! I think siamese are gorgeous but I agree that they are pricey little beasts.

    Free kitties ftw!

    Aww, there’s so cute. :D Merlin has lovely eyes.

    The background image randomly cuts off in my resolution (1280×1024).

    The one with the very blue eyes actually looks like a big cat. Like, a lioness or something. Neat! :O

    They look very regal! I think all Siamese cats look that way. :)

    I have what we thought was a Siamese when we got him, but turned out to be a Balinese. Either way, both breeds have brilliant coloring–Merlin and Billi are no exception.

    Mimi’s right–my cat always looks regal. Sometimes regally pissed, but still. Regal.

    I don’t really like Siamese cats because they always look fierce to me. But these do look beautiful and regal :)

    Your cats coats look so beautiful and well groomed.

    I have the same kind of cat as you. Are your cats as egotistical as mine?
    Mine walks around the house like it owns the place

    You’ve heard the old expression, "a dog’s life", these cats really have it made. I use to have a Yard Cat many, many years ago as a young boy growing up in rural Mississippi. He would often follow me into the woods on my morning squirrel hunts, a first I was annoyed at him, but quickly found out that the cat (Barney) enjoyed the hunt as much as my small squirrel dogs. They would both race to the unfortunate victims of, my early morning outings, to see which could grab the little furry creature first—at times fighting over the carcus. Sounds bad, I know, but that was life in rural Mississippi in those days–no apologies.
