Alien Cat from Taos

The Sagebrush Inn in Taos where mom stayed when she was away for her work retreat has always been friendly toward travelers' pets but it turns out they have acquired an Inn cat named "Shadow". Mom confessed to us that she had spent some time petting this little girl.

Turns out, one day about a year ago, this little bitty kitty walked into the Inn came around the check-in counter curled up under the front desk and promptly began purring and snoozing. The owner fell in love with her, took her to the vet for all the necessary shots and fixing and gave her a home at the Inn. According to staff, Shadow pretty much has the run of the place and enjoys being petted by just about every one. Mom said petting this little girl helped her not miss us so much during her absence. As long as she didn't bring the little girl home, petting is fine with me.

This is Shadow looking through the sagebrush at the Prairie Dog village behind the Inn. She does not eat or try to catch the Prairie Dogs but enjoys pouncing at lizards and other little things around the grounds. I think she has a pretty purple flea collar.

I'm a little jealous that I couldn't come and play with her and romp through the Prairie Dog village while mom was there.


May your week be filled with joyful things to do!

It is very nice they took Shadow in and she has a special job as greeter. I'm sure she has helped lotsa beans not miss their kitties so much, but certainly she can't replace you at all!

So really your mom was visiting alien cats? A small nip might be in order, S.

My mom saw your mom tonight while she was waiting to turn into her place. My mom would have beeped but the horn is the size of a pin head and she couldn't find it in time and just waved like a moron instead.

No food in that photo of Sebastian on the papers. He was sitting on Better Homes and Garden magazine and there was a recipe about garbanzo beans. LOL.

She beautiful! How wonderful she picked out her home and her people!
We are glad your mom could pet her while she was away!
A prairie dog village in the back yard sounds cool!
