8 Purrdy Felines for Rez Caturday

ICTMN presents eight more rez cats from across Indian country as part of Rez #Caturday.

Hey Indian country cat lovers, we are once again highlighting some of our rez hair-ballers submitted to us from all over. Since our last article featuring feline friends was so popular – we are doing it again.

If you’d like to submit your pictures and fun facts about your rez kitty just send us an e-mail at RezPets@Gmail.com along with a picture, the rez cat’s name and age, owner’s name, the rez you’re from (or near) and city and state – we’ll be glad to post your rez kitty pics!

Kodo

Chris Escalante (aka Mr. Mayhem) sent us his pic of Kodo from the Tohono O'odham Rez in Sells, Arizona. Kodo, who is five years young, looks seriously chilled out in this laid-back on the floor pose. Now THAT is a rez cat-nap!

Batman

Susan Braine told us this about her 6-month-old rez cat that lives on a little ranch on Kirby Creek, near Busby, Montana. “Batman the Northern Cheyenne rez cat is doing his high five!” He could also be doing a Batman punch Susan and look out for the bat signal shining over Montana!

Buttons

Lance Copegog from the Beausoleil First Nation Territory on Christian Island, Ontario, Canada sent us this adorable rez kitty, Buttons who is 8 years old. Lance says he has a cute rez cat – and well, we couldn’t agree more, that fuzzy face, little pink nose – cute cute cute!

Lamontta – A bit scary – but awesome

Lamontta is a 2-year-old grey and white rez cat owned by Lexci from Window Rock, Arizona. We LOVE this shot of Lamontta, who stares danger straight in the face and posed on top of roof’s skylight. You might look a little scary with that glint in your eyes – but you are one cool rez cat!

Gato da Res Cat

This awesome pic of Gato da Res Cat comes to us from George Rivera who is located in Tewa Pojoaque Pueblo, New Mexico. The Rivera family isn’t too sure of Gato’s age but one thing is certain, Gato da Res Cat gives AWESOME singing lessons to this Native youngster Valentino Rivera.

Paws – The Double Toed Rez Kitty

Nomar Martin from Table Mesa, New Mexico and the Navajo Nation sent us a picture of Paws at his last rez kitty birthday party. According to Nomar, the 8 year old Paws has twice as many toes as the normal kitty – how great is that? Since he has twice as many toes than a regular cat, can he climb twice as fast or scratch twice as much?

Narbles

Narbles is a straight chillin’ rez cat who lives on the Smith River Rez in California with her owner Bre Ellis. There is no mistake that Narbles looks truly content sitting and watching TV with a bowl of soup. But Narbles, please tell us you’re not growing an actual human hand…

This gorgeous rez cat photo is a green eyed feline named Sir Kayto the Tornayto, who lives near the Rankokus Reservation in Rancocas, New Jersey. (Which unfortunately has been turned into a state park says his owner Lisa H. (Powhatan-Rappahannock) 

Lisa told us this message from Sir Kayto, “I may live in the 'burbs, but I'm a rez cat at heart. I love fry bread and venison sausages and it sure shows!”
