I have these two crazy cats that are always getting into strange and hilarious situations! 

They are brothers. My little family adopted them from PetSmart Adoptions when they were both three years old. We went in to find a kitten, one kitten, but the kittens all hid under the cages away from my two small kids, my hubby and I; whereas these two, who have no shame, sprawled their fat (they were exceedingly fat!), furry selves across the floor and begged for their bellies to be rubbed. Who ever heard of a cat who wants a belly rub! Let alone from a stranger! Not to mention toddler and preschool aged strangers! Weird? They must be ours.

Of course we obliged and were rewarded with much purring. And they're SO soft! Well..,when clean. We've since found that Rascal seems to think he's a dog and rolls in the dirt, the street, anything. He's rarely white and clean, like on that first day, more of a greyish color now. Rocco prefers to beautify himself most of the day.

When we heard about their past, we just had to give them a home! Full story of their past is coming soon in the book

Rescued: The Stories of 12 Cats, Through Their Eyes

Bonus; there was little risk they would die when our kids squeezed the daylight out of them tried to carry them. They were too fat and heavy for the kids to even attempt it!

It didn't take long for them to get comfortable, pretend they were tough guys and try to run the neighborhood, which is fun to watch! Together they gang up and torment the locals. Alone, however, they are fraidy-cats and the first to turn tail!

It didn't take long for us to discover they were strange, far from graceful, ate weird things, slept in weird places, the list goes on. None of the stereo-typical things you generally associate with felines. Except that they are extremely curious, especially Rascal (hence the name).  

But, enough about them, who am I? 

Well, I'm L. E. Mastilock, of course. I've blog about my life as an artist, writer, and homeschooling mom at:
My Personal Blog:

You can also find me on Etsy and view some of my art here. I do pet portraits!

Every time I posted a pic of the cats people would tell me I should have a whole blog about them! I think they do deserve their own blog. They both have personality, that's for sure!

Max joined our family a couple years later and has been making a place for himself here on the blog, too.

I swear that all pics are mine and none are staged. They are all candid shots, where I found them. I never place them anywhere or try to get them to do certain things; as if they would let me!

    1. Hey Couz love your blog & Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year! I have 3 Crazy cats that a shy cat that basically lives outside lil Magic only loves Mom & shy's away from everyone else. My cat Smudge the Pudge is very playful & once she gets 2 know people which takes her about 1 to 2wks of you coming over several times. Fat Cal is huge she is too furry so she is a outside cat too! She only comes around in the morn & night for food & doesn't play @ all. We've tried everything to get that to run around & play but she just bats @ any cat toy even the string toys that swing don't get her come them.

    2. So glad you came by! They all have their own unique personalities. Sounds like fun, with 3 furballs in the house!
