Featured Artwork: Winter Cats

A Portrait of an Old Cat: Afternoon Nap ~ An old cat, a gentleman, he has found a quiet spot, upstairs in the afternoon, and has so perfectly placed himself a little off-center on the expanse of white bedspread, illuminated by stark winter light through the window. (Stanley finds all

From the Archives: Old and Not So Old, December 14, 2005

Stanley and Moses curl up together in fine symmetry like double quotes; Stanley was 24, Moses was 19, and the two had always been friends but were inseparable for that last year Moses was with us. When my little formerly feral kitten was forced out of her room by the

Rescue Story: Cookie’s Homecoming Day

On December 9, 1992, during a heavy storm of snow and ice, a little neighbor boy brought me a kitten he’d rescued but could not keep. That very special tortoiseshell kitten joined my household that day, though neither she nor I had any idea at the time how long or

From the Archives: The Big Sister, 2007

From December 6, 2007, Cookie cuddles with a very young Mr. Sunshine, just past four months old. You see, it was Cookie who showed the Fantastic Four how to organize those fantastic naps on Mama Bernadette’s desk. So how did Cookie adapt to four vigorous kittens suddenly flying around the

“Dinnertime!” a Daily Sketch of Time and Place

In a week where I’m celebrating my habit of daily sketches is this sketch, one of my first. It’s Kelly, Mimi and Cookie enjoying dinner on the evening of December 7, 2011. Nearly all my daily sketches are “in the moment”, not made from photos and usually not from memory. They

From The Archives: Cookie’s Minions, 2009

I know everyone’s eyes go first to the eyes of the black cats behind, but mine go to Cookie, who was pointedly ignoring me. She was never a graceful model until her last two years. Behind her is all five of the black cats. Cookie hardly thought of the Five

Girl Talk, 2011

What secrets do you suppose my two tortie girls were sharing? That cute tabby boy who’s been visiting from Midland Avenue? How annoying four young black cats can be to two “geriatric” tortie girls? A plot for tortoiseshell cats to take over the world? I captured this photo just by

Daily Photo Reprise: Two-pack, Four-pack, Just As Sweet, 2010

It looks like a two-pack to me, but the girls pack enough sweetness for a four-pack. And remember, Cookie’s original name was “chocolate”, even before it was Chocolate Chip Cookie! She and Kelly each, like most torties, had a lot of chocolate tones in their fur. These are a two-pack

Daily Photo Reprise: Something in the Geraniums, 2011

Cookie never ceased to amaze me…from November 2011. I finally carried my geraniums inside this weekend with the warning of freezing temperatures, and look what I discovered in one of them! A Cookie! She was probably cold and drawn to the lamp, which is nice and warm. Mind you, she
