Cats on Tuesday: Isis Kyle




Isis the Imperious

Isis has been fondly dubbed "Largest Thing in the House."


As you can see, she has turned into quite an enormous House Panther.


Here she is on the kitchen table...


...glaring down on us with an imperiousness that is usually reserved for Queen Emma.



Cats Like Roving

Meanwhile, Morgan was voted (only by Mr. O'Kitten, I should add, as I abstained from the polls) Best Cat in the House. I think she got the nomination mainly because she only gets into trouble quietly and stealthily--which Mr. O'Kitten says is only further proof of why she is The Best Cat.


Here she is--not climbing in all the kitchen cabinets, opening upopened bags of cat food, or knocking over houseplants--but rather nesting in the llama-wool roving I was in the process of spinning. Ah, so endearing... [More Morgan below in my egg cooler.]

Isis is beautiful with her shiny panther type coat but she does does look as fierce as a panther. Morgan on the other hand has the best coat I have seen, and the color is rather unique too.

I can't believe it ! After such a long time you are back again ! Isis has become a real beautiful cat, she reminds me so much of the very first cat I had and who shared my life for 20 years !
Now I am off to scroll through your blog if I can find something about (my) little Pepper !

Paula said...

Oh my goodness my cats not only try and nap in the roving they groom it also!

You have such beautiful cats!

Sarah said...

Beautiful cats! Isis is very regal looking. Morgan is very pretty. My lady-tuxie is a large cat, she is most offended when she is mistaken for a he-cat due to her size. She uses her size to attack every cat that rudely chooses to walk through our garden.

I am a softie for the black cat. Isis is drop dead gorgeous! Lovely kitty! Fun post and I just love that last photo with the little paw over the buddy's eyes, too cute.- That would make a good one for my Valentine contest!

Morgan and Isis, you are both beautiful cats. :) Wonderful photos of you both! :)

Barbara-Kay said...

Wow! I'm in love with Isis! What absolutely perfect portraits! Clearly he loves you to display so beautifully.

I love both your cats but I have to say that Iris, the black one, is my favourite. I used to have 4 black ones and I miss them! So sleek and special! Yours seem to get along mostly!

Chris said...

How big is Isis?? I think that wickedness is a black cat thing. :)

mrspao said...

Both of them are super gorgeous. Isis has such a wonderful shiny coat! I like that Morgan is stealthily naughty :)

Luna said...

They are so beautiful. Especially the last photo is adorable. I wish our cats would sleep like that together.
Isis looks like a statue.

I love the first photo.
It's very difficult to capture black animals, they often turn out as black eyeless blobs (as me how I know) but yours of Isis are wonderful. She is ruler and goddess, as is befitting her name, after all.

Both BEAUTIFUL cats, but my favorite is Isis! Happy COT!

Celeste said...

Beautiful babies!

Your Isis is still way smaller than my Isis (aka porkbutt aka fatty fatty bomba latty)

They're beautiful. I love the last picture. I wish that was the rule and not the exception in my house.

Isis is adorable. I mean, imperious.

Although Morgan does have her charms....

Helen said...

Your kitties seem so sweet and calm. So pretty.

Happy to see Cats on Tuesday are back.
Just love all the pictures of your precious kitties. I enjoy the pictures of both cats sleeping together giving each other comfort.
Have a great day.
