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

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

Daily Photo Reprise: National Yarn Day

What is sweeter than a senior tortie cat sleeping on a freshly-finished shawl? As someone who has been a yarn or threadworker for all my life, I can’t pass up National Yarn Day, even though it was yesterday—and my cats celebrate along with me because my family of felines have
