One Of These Is Not Like The Others

Can’t quite put my finger on it…something is…just…a bit off with this photo. It’ll come to me.

“My Brother Fr. Steve cherishes his pets like his kids. We found Señor Don Gato (the cat) in our Mother’s garage and can’t express how grateful we are that he’s found us and is apart of our family. We took this picture yesterday and were amazed at how well the cat cooperated! We definitely gave them a lot of treats for this! Ha. Just wanted to share this gem of a photo! Cause we think it’s purrrrfect! Happy Holidays! Emily and My bro Fr. Steve.”



  1. Oh, good grief, that must be the cutest Christmas photo ever! Merry Christmas to all of you!

  2. Adorable picture. And I see we have the rare cat baroo.

  3. How cute! Kittie has very unusual stripes on his legs.

  4. That is a very large cat.

  5. I think we gotta teach the new dog how to bark. He keeps sayin it “meeow.”

  6. Señor Don Gato is a beautiful kitty, and his two furry companions are as cute as can be. Great picture!! Thanks to you and your bro. Fr. Steven for caring about and loving these three cuties.

  8. Dear lord, that cat! Is he smiling? Yes, yes I believe he is!

  9. Senor Don Gato
    O Senor Don Gato was a cat.
    On a high red roof Don Gato sat.
    He was there to read a letter,
    Meow, meow, meow!
    Where the reading light was better,
    Meow, meow, meow!
    ‘Twas a love-note for Don Gato!
    “I adore you,” wrote the lady cat,
    Who was fluffy white, and nice and fat.
    There was not a sweeter kitty,
    Meow, meow, meow!
    In the country or the city
    Meow, meow, meow!
    And she said she’d wed Don Gato!
    O Senor Don Gato jumped with glee!
    He fell off the roof and broke his knee,
    Broke his ribs and all his whiskers,
    Meow, meow, meow!
    And his little solar plexus
    Meow, meow, meow!
    “Ay Caramba! ” cried Don Gato.
    All the doctors they came on the run,
    Just to see if something could be done.
    And they held a consultation,
    Meow, meow, meow!
    About how to save their patient,
    Meow, meow, meow!
    How to save Senor Don Gato.
    But in spite of everything they tried,
    Poor Senor Don Gato up and died.
    No, it wasn’t very merry,
    Meow, meow, meow!
    Going to the cemetery,
    Meow, meow, meow!
    For the ending of Don Gato.
    But as the funeral passed the market square,
    Such a smell of fish was in the air,
    Though the burial was slated,
    Meow, meow, meow!
    He became reanimated,
    Meow, meow, meow!
    He came back to life, Don Gato!

    Señor don Gato is soo excellent. Those stripey legs! Gorgeous muzzle powshes, he wears the heck out of a sweateuh – and he can pose for a photo like nobody’s business. And best of all, this brilliant cat just showed up in their garage!

  11. Of course, one of these is much more superior to the others……….. It’s Senor Don Gato!
    @murkle46 cute story! I loved the story until he died 😦 Then I read the ending and was happy again! 🙂

    If only all garages contained such handsome striped kitties like Don Gato. Glad he’s found a happy home with his dos amigos.
