Daily Photo: That Looks Good

What is that you’re eating? It looks really good. Can we have some? Mimi is very stolid when she’s asking for something. She knows I see her and I know she’s interested. No need for dramatics. Not so her son. Giuseppe is all kinds of cute, making chirping noises and

The sun just came around to this angle again and I remembered Kelly sitting in this spot, waiting for me to come over to pet her. This is the photo I came to identify with A Little Bit About Kelly, little Kelly’s rescue story. Though I took the photo in

Smokie has been learning to pose too. My, doesn’t he know what to do with his tail? And those amber eyes! I just went into my bedroom to get a frame I have stored in there but Smokie was just irresistible on the bed. I thought I’d gotten the photo

Daily Sketch: Together

Mimi took my seat in the studio, then Bean settled on the seat with her. They were curled almost like yin and yang but not quite, since yin was so much smaller. But still I could see the flow of shapes between them. I like a nice single varied line,

Lots of nice repeated curve shapes. And of course, the centerpiece is Bella. But Bella wasn’t happy with

Chocolate or Marshmallow Instead of Furs and Feathers

This is not really a rescue story for Tuesday, but avoiding the need for rescue is also part of caring for homeless animals. We’re coming up to Easter and spring is progressing, and often rabbits and chicks become seasonal pets who are purchased and then abandoned, even today. I have

Daily Sketch Reprise: Cat-eating Bag, 2014

That nasty bag is devouring my cats again, the same one that tried to swallow Mimi whole last week. Mr. Sunshine got out safely, but not before I sketched him. It was another case of pulling artwork out of the bag  to put away and leaving it standing in place

Daily Photo Reprise: Catnip Party, 2011

Three of the girls organize an impromptu catnip party on the sunny landing. Cookie was enjoying the catnip candy cane first, and invited Mimi and Mewsette to take turns biting, licking and rubbing their faces on the upstairs catnip candy cane. Cookie gets her turn. Then it’s time for Mewsette

A Sympathy Card for Rescues, Featuring Kennedy

Those bristly whiskers and gaunt face, copper eyes with a cataract, bent legs, stiff spine, who could forget any of Kennedy’s battle scars? But mostly, who could forget the part that was just him: happy, full of love and friendship, despite his pain and his past as you clearly see
