Daily Sketch Reprise: Their Faces in the Sun, 2013

Mimi and Mewsette settled in the sun from the window on the landing, both of them enjoying the wash of the warm light on their faces as the shadows crept up over their backs. Often, big soft Mewsette settles somewhere and soon I see little Mimi tucked up against her,

Daily Photo: Telling Stories

Purrrrhaps Bean and Giuseppe are whispering stories to each other on my desk like Cookie and Kelly are on the monitor behind them. In either case, I rarely find out what they discussed! . . . . . . . What other photos have I shared on this date? Do

Daily Photo Reprise: Jelly Bean’s Earth Day

Jelly Bean says he had a pretty good Earth Day. He conserved a lot of energy by napping as much as possible, so much energy that he could probably cash in what he conserved to get himself some really good treats, or even some quality ‘nip. And he knows he

A Celebration of the Earth

A few years ago I answered the questions on a “What’s Your Footprint?” test on a website that gave points or demerits in accordance with how choices you made in your lifestyle affected the earth and I ended up with a negative footprint. How is that? Is it mounded up

Daily Sketch Reprises: Spring Window, 2013 and Resting, Spring Afternoon, 2012

Mimi quietly settled on the windowsill in the studio on a sunny late afternoon, when the sun is best. I worked a simple, kind of abstract version of her contentedly watching out the window, the calming blue and purple and green showing in her fur, the bright yellow and pale

Daily Photo: Four in the Tub

The Four Housecats of the Apocalypse have taken over the tub! This is how their day started out, sunny and warm, and a tub full of toys. They will be seven years old this summer, but they are always ready for another round of play in the tub. I tossed

Daily Photo Reprise: The Eye Model, 2012

Surely, if there are such things as a “hand model” whose lovely hands are used to show off fine jewelry and accessories there can also be an “eye model”. In humans I guess these would model eyewear, but in cats? Well, I guess they’d model themselves. Surely they don’t need

Cats for Adoption: Foxy

This beautiful girl needs a home! Look at those dainty white toes—purrhaps she dipped them in paint. Foxy was tossed out when her owners found out she was pregnant. She had her kittens outside then she and kittens were rescued and fostered. One kitten was adopted on his own, then

Daily Photo Reprise: Neatly Folded Cats, 2011

The effects of a dark, rainy morning: five black cats neatly organized in two groups to sleep on the bed. After taking up most of the space on my desk this morning, they all disappeared upstairs and tried to get me to lie down with them when I went upstairs.

Poem for Spring: To Come Again in Spring

As the spring unfolds with longer days and milder temperatures, we remember what has passed. Because it feels like such a day of renewal, and also remembrance, I thought I’d share a poem that’s not feline-centric for this holiday and this time of year. Of course, though, it includes my
