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: Lucky Seven, 2010

From this day in 2010… Here they are in a really lucky shot—all seven of my household ON the cabinet! Cookie and Kelly got their special noms as senior girls while I was working in the kitchen, and one by one all the others gathered around. Normally I don’t let

Daily Photo Reprises: Laps Full of Cats

It’s been a constant parade of cats on my lap, from my tortie girls to a few black cats to both tortie and black cats together. How do I get anything done? Well…

 

Daily Photo Reprise: Studio Cats Working Hard

Bean takes advantage of all the color-balanced lights to make certain his little white thong is sparkling clean. I have different uses for my studio accommodations and all the lights I’ve installed, but on a cool rainy day I’m outnumbered in there. Jelly Bean and Mr. Sunshine permitted me a

“Kelly’s Morning Bath” Block Print on Handmade Papers

The Kelly’s Morning Bath duo was the first feline pictorial block print I designed all the way back in 1998, even before The Tortie Girls duo of block prints. I was literally inspired by Kelly’s daily morning bath in front of the big casement window, sketched it up and cut

Vintage Photos: October 3, A Homecoming Day

Namir and Kelly mirror each others’ sleeping positions on the couch, in 2000. . . . . . . . It’s always a bittersweet day for me, one in the cycle of the comings and goings of felines in my household, but I mark it each year in memory knowing

From the Archives: Autumn Sun, 2008

A series reminiscent of yesterday’s Sunny Morning, same window opening but totally different bathroom as well as a different cat. Kelly lazily observes something high up the sunny window as the sun’s warmth both shines and reflects on her, from 2008. The light is so warm and the various patterns

Daily Photo Reprise: Mimi Becomes “One of the Girls”, 2010

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

Poetry: For Pet Memorial Sunday

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
