FC: VIXEN: The Unbearable Cuteness of Being ...a photographic retrospective | (c) 2013 by Carolynne Wilcox
1: VIXEN WILCOX-TORREY came into our lives on November 13, 2011. This is her story.
2: Here I am, magnificent "Cat in Repose." Look into my beautiful green eyes and lose yourself.
3: I like to take naps. LOTS OF NAPS.
4: ...sometimes... ...I see something outside on which I must focus with laser-like precision. | But sometimes...
5: I let Mama and Papa assume they are in control, but really, *I* am the master.
6: Sometimes, they put their things into these containers, and don't come back for a long time. And even though new friends come to feed me chicken, this vexes me.
7: Especially | since you can see | that I fit into containers too!
8: I can hypnotize... with my eyes. | Sleepytime... | You talkin' to ME??? | Feel free to worship at my altar.
9: I am Vixen. Hear me ROAR! | S-T-R-E-E-E-E-T-C-H!
10: Witness the deftness with which I recline in many different positions, to the surprise and delight of all fortunate enough to bask in my feline glory.
11: My early life was crazy. I got lost. I got knocked up. I had six kittens SIX! All by the time I was ONE.
12: But now, all those little rugrats are gone away. I am blissfully free of motherly duties! I'm a kitten again! | The "Mona Vixen". Yes?
13: Don't hate me because I'm beautiful. Do I look, perhaps, like I am up to no good?
14: You would be incorrect, of course. I am very good at being a cat. | I am very skilled in stalking and trapping fake mice... | ...bird watching... | ...taking in quality programming...
15: ...biding my time before pouncing... | ...waiting at the window for Mama to come home (and feed me chicken)... | ...and of course, the frequent grooming of my full, glossy coat!
16: I am bashful.
17: I am curious! | I AM ALERT...
18: I like to display myself in boxes, diorama-style... ...and take long naps by the window.
19: I enjoy sitting in sunbeams, contemplating life. And Chicken.
20: I am an educated feline.
21: But make no mistake: I AM PLOTTING WORLD TAKEOVER. One can of succulent chicken at a time. Are you ready?
