Cats #40: Gimel Cleaning Galaxy’s Head

Here’s another Instagram picture from some months ago of Gimel cleaning Galaxy’s head.


Cats #16: Galaxy Loving Gimel

These are Instagram pictures I took of Galaxy and Gimel last month. They’re often cleaning each other and Galaxy decided it would be a good idea to clean Gimel’s face while she was trying to sleep.

Cats #15: Gimel In Galaxy Arms

Here’s an old Instagram picture I took when Gimel was a little smaller. She often cuddles with Galaxy when he’s cleaning her.

Cats #12: Gimel Spayed

When Gimel was spayed earlier this year Galaxy took some time to get used to her cone. Once she came home from the operation the first couple of days Galaxy acted as if he’d never seen her before. He didn’t recognize her smell or the cone on her head and there was a lot of growling and hissing. She’d try to rub against him and he’d resist. Eventually she grew on him all over again and that’s when I snapped this Instagram picture.

Cats #9: PomPom

Gimel is obsessed with craft pompoms. She growls if Galaxy comes near her while she has one (though he could care less about them) and runs around the house like she’s on catnip when she comes across one. This is a picture of her as a kitten, rescuing one from a decretive arch at the bottom of my desk. She squeezed under and I snapped a picture of her as she popped her head back out upon retrieval.

Cats #7: Dancing

Here we have Galaxy dancing to the music in his head the first day I brought him home in March of 2011. (Yes, I’m the one who added the thought bubble.)

Cats #5: Plotting

This is a picture of Galaxy the first day I brought him home a couple of years ago. (Yes, I added the caption.)
