PhotoHunt: Wild - Pyewacket


This is Pyewacket - she is our wild child. Pyewacket is an Old Style Siamese - a back to the basics breed, not the oriental siamese that has become widespread in the past fifty years. As there is only one breeder in Australia who specialises in this old fashioned style of siamese, Pyewacket had to come up on a plane from country Victoria.

She dances to her own drum. She plays tea party in the middle of the night with the tiny vegetable shaped teapots. We think every little thing she does is magic.



She plays a great game of pool with Australian representative player Alessandro. There's nothing sedate about little Pye and nothing has changed since I wrote A Day in Life of Pyewacket, published in her blog, topcatrules, over a year ago.



Pyewacket is different from our other cats - she is our very own wild child.



This is my latest entry.

Hi Leslie, awesome selection on this week's theme. Pyewacket is so cute. I love your designs and the video of Pyewacket playing with Alessandro is cool...

I thought that music video was great too!

Thanks for the wonderful start of my Friday here in California. Have a great day.

Hi Leslie! Pyewacket is an elegantly wild young lady. I never realized there was an "old fashioned" breed of Siamese. She's beautiful, and I can see the difference.

P.S. He loves you... said...

I also did a cat post...yours is very cool looking!

Barbara H. said...

She's lovely!

Oh she's lovely. I love siamese kitties. What a cutie. Thanks for video of her playing pool.

Great choice for our "wild" theme.

marta said...

Pyewacket has grown up to be a lovely cat. Isn't it great having the wild animals let us live with them.

Baker Watson said...

Pyewacket sounds like Mungojerrie and Rumpleteazer of 'Cats' fame, lol.

Thanks for dropping by earlier

Colleen said...

Ha ha...love cats with great personality! Lovely 'wild' shots!

Brine Queen said...

What a fabulous cat. Did you have trouble bringing her over? I know Australia has some pretty strict rules about bringing pets in...

Do the old siamese have the same health issues that the newer breeds do?

Brine Queen said...

Oops... I see that you flew her in 'in country'. That must have been easier.

Eric and Flynn said...

Wild and beautiful. We liked watching her play pool. We couldn't see the other video, it said it was no longer available.

girasoli said...

Lucky you to have such a beautiful wild child! Loved the pool video!

Your buddy, Jimmy Joe
