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,

Heat Stroke in Cats

How easily can a cat go into heat stroke? More easily than you might think even if they stay indoors and windows are open with fans on during a heat wave. Sometimes, even with the best of intentions, the situation can get out of control with a series of circumstances

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. Especially when I chose to take a photo before feeding them because they were acting so “cute”. Cookie and Kelly decidedly do not look at me when I take their

Daily Sketch Reprise: Kelly With Grapes and Apple, 2012

When the sun moves around to filter into this window, Kelly hops over to enjoy it and have a nice bath on the cabinet. In a rare moment of repose, she sits still and lets the sun warm her back, the light reflecting back from the pine wood cabinet warming

Daily Sketch Reprise: Kelly in Warm Colors, 2012

I’ve been looking forward to sharing this sketch again. It is a sweet memory, and still one of my favorites, and one through which I still feel a deep bond with Kelly. Because I always hope she feels the warmth of love. I hadn’t set out to do quite this,

Daily Photo Reprise: Mysterious Kelly, 2011

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

Daily Sketch Reprise: Kelly Silhouette, 2012

Kelly was playing in the sun again this morning with another catnip toy. At least she ate breakfast first! After I sketched her outline I decided I’d go a little farther and fill in her silhouette and long shadow. I hadn’t realized I had sketched Kelly three days in a
