Here’s another video by Tuffy P, this one starring Jacques and Jack Shadbolt, our two red cats. Not a lot happens in this video until the very end when they take off after a bird (no birds were harmed in the making of this video), so if you were expecting a plot line or anything like that, you’re in for a let down.
I’m mentioned here before that our cat Jacques likes to go on walks with us. Tuffy P caught a bit of the action on video on this cold frosty morning.

Our cat Rossi died today. He had a stroke or maybe strokes about a year ago and since he’s been living with seizures that have become increasingly severe with the passing of days. He was a good cat, grumpy, independent and yet in a strange way the most affectionate of the bunch – on his own terms. I admire that.
His first name, the name we called him by when we first met him, was Always be Closing, from GlenGarry Glen Ross. We called him that because when he showed up on our porch at Blackthorn, he did everything he could to close the deal.
We realized soon enough that Always be Closing was a stupid name for a cat, so we changed it to Rossi.
This photo reminds me of Life of Pi. Which one of them is the tiger?
Tuffy P took this shot this morning.
Jack Shadbolt, that’s who I’m talking about
Along with his pal/arch enemy Shadow, this one is responsible for turning our house into the Indianapolis Speedway at 5:18 every morning.
