Wordless Wednesday – Tight Squeeze

Magellan - Master Of His Universe

This space doesn’t feel the way it used to…

Welcome To Wordless Wednesday At Create With Joy!

Photos Of The Week – Magellan, Now And Then

Quote Of The Week
He lives in the half-lights in secret places, free and alone –
This mysterious little great being whom his mistress calls “My cat”.

Margaret Benson

Wordless Wednesday – On Guard

I am always fascinated by tangible signs of growth.
Therefore, I was delighted to discover a few new
“Then and Now” photos that will give you an
Idea of how much Magellan has grown
Since the beginning of the year!

The Now photos were taken a few weeks ago during my
Where Bloggers Create 2014 photo shoot.

Magellan - The Sky Is Falling

The sky falling!

The moment I cleaned out my under-the-monitor clutter,
Magellan could not wait to claim the
Newfound space for his own!

Magellan Loves Tight Spaces

The walls are closing in!

Of course, he was not too pleased to discover that
The space had shrunk since his carefree kitten snooze
Back in January when he fit in the cubbyhole with room to spare!

Magellan - Relaxed

Now this? This is the life!

Don’t you just love that determined yet frustrated scowl
On his precious kitty face as he hunkers down on his turf?

How do your pets react when things do not go
Quite the way they planned?

  4. Awww he wants to be always near you! He is growing up so fast =)

  5. He does look a bit annoyed. I know the feeling, there are places I don’t fit so well into these days.

    Has Magellan’s color changed as he’s gotten older, or is it just the difference in the lighting between the two photos? He looks grayer in his “baby” shot and more brown in the recent shot.

      Hi Kate,

      I think it’s just the lighting (there’s a big window there and the time of day and the amount of sunshine streaming in really impacts the colors sometimes). Magellan has always been brown! 🙂

  6. Tight squeeze indeed!

    He is smarter than we all think, by now he knows your every move.
    He looks like a King !!!

    Cats just love squeezing into tight spaces! It’s sometimes a challenge finding the hiding place, isn’t it?

    Great shots!

    How cute! I love how kitties have the ability to fit in very tight spaces 🙂 Happy WW!

  11. Michelle says:

    Cats are so awesome 🙂

  12. Janice Trinh says:

    I can definitely see how much he’s grown. And he looks almost like a lion protecting his space! haha!

  13. Comedy Plus says:

    Awww, what a cutie pie.

    Thanks for linking up to Awww Mondays.

    Have a purrfect day. 🙂

  14. Adorable! Thanks for hosting & God bless!

    Wow when you compare like that it certainly shows how much he grew! 🙂

  16. These cat photos I like. Very nice.

    Cats are so hilarious…they’re always cramming themselves into the smallest spots available! 🙂

  18. Mary Denman says:

    So sweet! They grow so fast!

    Our cats are all a few years old now. Our Flame-Point Siamese used to sleep in the litter box when he was a kitten. Fortunately, he doesn’t do that anymore!

  19. meowmeowmans says:

    Magellan! Look how big, strong and handsome you’re getting!

  20. Love the pictures, our new kitten is THAT fluffy (and still small so we watch every inch of growth and get more and more worried!)

    My kitty Molly doesn’t understand why her favorite place as a tiny kitten has gotten so small. Its hard to tell her that she has grown. She will always be little in our eyes.
    Wednesdays wags!

  22. It is amazing how fast they grow. It is always funny the first time they realize they don’t fit where they used to play.

  23. Gattina says:

    Cats are very creative in finding napping places !

  24. Cats are so funny! I like watching them get into tight places. It’s really an amazing thing sometimes to see. I guess they just don’t think like people do when they outgrow something, “Hey, I can’t fit into that anymore!” Loved the video ~ sooo cute! It makes me wanna go out and buy two kittens, but sigh, I cannot because I’m allergic to those cuties! Happy #WW!

      I’m hoping my husband will take the hint and get me birthday kittens – lol – but he says the Christmas kitten is all our household can handle!

  25. miley says:

    We wish we could fit into tight spaces like that! Happy WW!

  26. Emilie says:

    LOL What a funny cat. Also, beautiful.

    Our black cat and tabby both play unexpected events as first jumping back, but immediately pulling the “I MEANT to do that” routine. Our tuxedo kitty, though, gets very low and stalks the area until he decides it’s safe, or boring as the case may be.

    Happy WW!

  27. Bailey says:

    What a great spot to hang out.

    That is a big change. Cats are funny!

  30. Kitties Blue says:

    They really grow up way too fast. Magellan is turning into a magnificent man-cat! Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Aunti Janet

  31. Magellan has grown so quickly. How lovely that he always wants to stay close to you. 🙂 Here’s my WW: http://anotherday2paradise.wordpress.com/2014/07/30/wordless-wednesday-all-set-for-her-first-sleepover/

  32. MyDogLikes says:

    Of course there is enough room for a cat!

  33. Ralph says:

    Magellan (and Tsunami 🙂 are such amazing assistants and editors too! They are not just great helpers – and beautiful too!

  34. Feed Me Dearly says:

    Aw, poor sweetie – what a shock! 🙂
    Happy Wordless Wednesday!

  35. Aww-he was so cute and tiny! They grow up so fast!

    You must have thousands of pics of your beautiful Magellan. Kitties are so funny and interesting all at the same time, but I see why you’re so proud he’s beautiful. Thanks for sharing your wonderful pics and that cute video. Have a wonderful day my friend. Hugs!

  37. Nice to meet you Magellan ! The little kitten turned into a beautiful mancat ! Purrs

  38. This cat looks so cool and comfy…

  39. Nan G says:

    Oh he is so handsome! And Sooo big now! His fur seems to have changed color a bit too? Looks more grayish as a youngster and a lovely caramel and black now. The white paws and under chin really are striking. My Girls throw tantrums when they dont get their way. Literally throw themselves on the floor as if they’ve been shot. Aren’t our fur kids too funny?! Hugs Nan, T and Baby (the Girls)

      Hi Nan,

      Hope you are well! You are the 2nd person to mention the change in color…
      I love his white paws too!
      How funny that your girls throw tantrums when they don’t get their way –
      That would make for a funny video! 🙂

  40. Linda Poitevin says:

    Argh! Now I want more kittens!!! Those Maine Coon babies are just too cute. 🙂 And yes, that expression on your boy’s face speaks volumes, lol!

  41. Adam says:

    That is quite a tail, and beautiful colors!
