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

Daily Photo Reprise: The Cats in the Hat, 2010

Both Kelly and Cookie put one of my hats to the test—before it’s even done! Every crochet item I make must be tested by at least one kitty, especially Kelly, my Lead Crochet Tester. This means it must be subject to the following activities as appropriate with the shape and

Living Green With Pets: Art Cats

“No art project can begin until someone tastes the paint water.” Wise words from Kelly, who learned this from Cookie and fully embraced it, being second in line for any container of water I set aside or had on hand for any purpose. And for that reason, years ago I

From the Archives: A Holiday Photo Shoot

Cookie’s expression may have you thinking otherwise, but really, when I photographed Cookie all dressed up for the holidays, and not looking very happy about it, the whole thing was her idea. We were all playing around that day—Peaches at 17, Giuseppe, Sunshine, Mewsette and Bean at five months old,

Daily Photo Reprise: Cookie…Cake? 2011

I’m glad I look before I add ingredients to the containers Cookie chooses to test for approval for use by kitchen cats. In this case, a Cookie covered in dry cake mix would be a total change in plans for the evening and for the event for which I was

Daily Sketch Reprise: Cookie Has a Drink, 2011

Cookie has a nice long drink many times a day, and her little shape over the water bowl is so very familiar. Because she approaches the water bowl in my studio from the same angle and even holds her tail the same way, I could do this sketch in shifts,
