Here, the “Golden Girls”, the “Tri-color Trio”, my three most senior kitties, Kelly at 17, Peaches at 20 and Cookie at 18, have their dinner on the cabinet in the middle of the kitchen while Mimi longingly, or slyly, I wasn’t sure, looks on. Apparently, she had a plan. Mimi

I’ll be speaking a little later today about “Loving Again After Loss, Why We Adopt Pets” at the Pet Memorial Sunday Ceremony by Chartiers Custom Pet Cremation and remembering again all the cats who came to shape my life and left me a better person. Just as my cats have

Vintage Photo: Get a Bath, Pay It Forward, 2010

In photos from this day in August 2010, Dickie, Kelly and Cookie have a chain reaction bath. You get a free bath, you return the favor by giving a free bath to someone else. First, Dickie, the main bath giver of the time, stopped Kelly and gave her a bath

Daily Photo Reprise: Cookie in the Pasta Bowl, 2010

This was the first one of all! Good thing I checked the bowl before I filled it with the mellowed fresh tomatoes and balsamic vinaigrette! I warmed my big round pasta bowl in the oven, then set it on the counter while I ran outside to get a couple branches

From the Archives: The Persistence of Cats

If you remember the painting by Salvador Dali, “The Persistence of Memory”, where clocks are draped over a tree branch, off the edge of a table and over an amorphous rounded object, it’s that painting that people refer to when they say, “It’s like that Dali painting,” when inanimate objects

Daily Photo: From the Archives and Reprises, Torties and Tri-colors

Mimi and Peaches have a little slumber party on the Dora bed on July 31, 2010. I visited my sister and saw this foam child’s bed ready for the trash because her granddaughter had outgrown it. I thought it would make a great cat bed! She gave it to me,

Daily Photo Reprise: Cookie Picks Her Own Sweet Corn, 2011

If there was any doubt that Cookie liked sweet corn, she proved it wrong every time I brought some into the house, whether it was from my garden or from the market. Last year, I barely had time to remove the salad greens and peppers from the basket before Cookie

Daily Photo Reprise: Lunch First, Photos Later, Maybe: 2011

I miss my tortie girls every day, even if I know they’d sometimes be annoyed with what I was doing. Cookie and Kelly decidedly do not look at me when I take their photo. I should be feeding them lunch, not fooling around with that thing I put in front

Daily Photo Reprise: Cookie in Speckles, 2011

Cool, sunny summer mornings are rare, but if they are not spent outside, they are best spent by the basement door, at eye level with all that’s going on in the back yard, catching the breeze and enjoying the play of sun and shadow. So says Cookie, a connoisseur of

Daily Photo Reprise: Sweet Dreams, and a…Tomato for Your Pillow, 2011

When a kitty is really tired, anything will do for a bed and pillow. I was kidding Cookie about perhaps having had a little ” ‘nip” and being, um, a little out of sorts. She sat up, washed her face and had a drink of water, but later she was
