From the Archives: The Garden Party, 2009

Cookie and Mimi were probably just enjoying the sun on this day in 2009, but I also appreciated them keeping others’ prying paws from my precious tomato seedlings reaching for the sun on the table by this window. I have no idea what the conversation was about that I interrupted,

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

Spring Adventures, Cookie and Mimi

Typically on the first day of spring I head out to work in my garden to celebrate, but not today, with rain and then snow, the soil is still partially frozen and what’s not is sopping wet, so today we remember a warmish sunny spring day in 2011 when Cookie

Wishful Thinking

“Our life is shaped by our mind, for we become what we think.” ~Gautama Buddha, The Dhammapada as translated by Eknath Easwaran I’ve never been one to be dissatisfied with the season at hand. What’s the point? I’ll put my energies to more productive activities, or like Moses napping below,

Vintage Photo: My Studio Window, March 1995

My first black cat, Kublai, sits on the windowsill in the sun in my studio, watching me work, sometime in March 1995. Seeing my cats on the windowsill of the room I designated as my studio has been a view I’ve enjoyed since I moved in here. It’s my spare

Daily Photo Reprise: Cuddling, 2011

The weather is unpredictable, and my tortie girls were glad I tossed the old flannel bathrobe back on the table for them to cuddle into as the sleet clicks against the windows. My senior girls aren’t terribly close but they certainly don’t mind each others’ company when the weather turns

Daily Photo Reprise: Al Fresco, 2011

Today we have frozen slush, but also good memories! We’ve been going outside every day all winter long, but Cookie found the snow and ice just weren’t fun anymore on her 19-year-old paws, so we mostly stayed on the deck. But today we explored the yard in all its winter

Things I Found in the Woods, Poetry and Memories

Every year the winter opens up to a few days of warm intoxicating sun and mud in January or February, and I’ve run outside to celebrate the day. In 2012 it was February 5, two days after Cookie died, and as I enjoyed the warm day without her and remembered

Vintage Photo: Dinnertime for Nine, 1994

My entire household of nine resident cats—and one is just out of range of this photo but you’ll see her below—enjoying dinner on the kitchen floor in February 1994. From the top right, the tabby cat with white paws is Stanley, 12. To the left of him the gray tabby

Daily Photo Reprise: Girl Talk, 2011

Now what do you suppose they’re saying? I hardly think they’re sharing typical “girl talk” about cute guys and new clothes, not these two “experienced” girl cats. Besides that, they’re fixed and I presume they’re happy with their natural attire. Is Cookie imparting some sage advice to Mimi as the
