Friday Flashback - Fireball - Early 1980's

We're letting mama flashback to the early 1980's today. Fireball was a young feral boy that kept showing up on mama's patio looking for food....of course there was always food there for him. Within a couple of weeks, mama had tamed him and he moved into the house.

He was definitely a "fireball" with scads of energy. He loved water and also loved to be in high places. He would almost always jump up on the shower stall door when someone was taking a shower....and would quite often join them in the shower!!!!! He spent a lot of time riding around on the family's shoulders. He might have been a total fireball, but mama says he was also a very loving cat.

Once again, please forgive the poor quality of the photos, but they have been around a looooooooooooooooooong time....:)

FireBall is a fabulous name! He sur eis lucky to have picked your mom! Thanx for sharing him with us.

Skeeter sends smoochies to Andy. She also ants to thank him for his purrayers for her. She is still a little limpy, I can't get her to the V~E~T until next week, but doesn't seem to be limping as much. I think she may have twisted it while playing with the red dot (she's not allowed to play that anymore)

He really was something special. Photoguy would like us to sit on his shoulder. But that is just way to high.
