A Legacy of Orange-Earl

Hi friends!

It’s Beatrice again.  I’m back with A Legacy of Orange Part II.  My previous post introduced you to Thomasina, Link’s 1st orange ancestor. 

As promised, tonight I’ll be sharing Link’s 2nd orange uncle with you.


Unlike Thomasina, I knew Earl  well.  We lived together for quite some time.  I wanted to be his friend so very badly.


But after consistently being rebuffed, I gave up on cultivating a relationship.  That floofy Earl really did think he was too good for a fuller figured lady like myself.

So when Earl passed and my humans mourned, I was secretly (or not so secretly) elated.

I guess I can kind of see what all the fuss was about.


He was one handsome orange dude.


Especially as a kitten.  He looked a lot like Link, didn’t he?


His handsomeness graced the front of many family Christmas cards.  Here he is with Marmie and her sister.


Like most cats, Earl had a knack for finding a soft spot to relax.


Probably unlike most cats, one of Earl’s favorite snuggle items was a good pair of shoes.


Such a handsome weirdo.


Thanks Link Bartholomew readers for letting me hijack the blog for a week!  Link will be returning tomorrow with regularly scheduled posting.

    It was nice to see you for the week and for you to introduce us to all the former gorgeous orangeness! Earl was indeed a very handsome kitty, it is a shame he didn’t not want to have a close relationship with you.

    I share your sentiments over Earl. While he was an orange beauty, he was a scamp at heart. As I remember he used to hide under beds and attack unsuspecting humans. He certainly did make his family happy, though.
