Just Sittin'

Several years ago, we adopted Sunny & Cher, twin Siamese cats. This is Cher.
Cher had several problems when we got him. He had been losing his fur, and he eventually went blind in one eye. And he had the most unusual habit of sitting like a person! Straight up.


After we had him only about a year, he died on the operating table. He was a lovable rascal.

It is so true about a kid!
Also I have been doing lots of sitting these days and tv.
Not a good thing.
Happy Memorial Day!

I think that is very unusual for a cat to sit like that Ginny Stay safe and have a wonderful weekend.

Handsome Cher. He looked comfortable sitting upright like a human.

Cher was a pretty cat. The way he sits is comical. I don't think I've ever seen a cat do that before.

I'm sure you have many happy memories of Cher. His preferred sitting position is definitely unusual.

That is a funny way to sit....I only occasionally see one come close to sitting like that and that not for long.

Cher was such a gorgeous kitty. I’m sorry your time with him was short but glad he left those fond memories. The way he sit like a person is so adorable! Maybe he thought he was a person :-) Thank you for sharing memories with your sweet Cher xo
