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,

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

From the Archives: The Big Sister, 2007

From December 6, 2007, Cookie cuddles with a very young Mr. Sunshine, just past four months old. You see, it was Cookie who showed the Fantastic Four how to organize those fantastic naps on Mama Bernadette’s desk. So how did Cookie adapt to four vigorous kittens suddenly flying around the

Daily Photo Reprise: My Inspirations, 2011

Coffee and a Cookie? More than that! Inspiration No. 1: Cookie, ready to start the day! Even though she was never a morning torite she’s always been the one to happily accompany me in whatever I do and wherever I go around the house. Inspiration No. 2: my morning coffee,

Girl Talk, 2011

What secrets do you suppose my two tortie girls were sharing? That cute tabby boy who’s been visiting from Midland Avenue? How annoying four young black cats can be to two “geriatric” tortie girls? A plot for tortoiseshell cats to take over the world? I captured this photo just by

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: Something in the Geraniums, 2011

Cookie never ceased to amaze me…from November 2011. I finally carried my geraniums inside this weekend with the warning of freezing temperatures, and look what I discovered in one of them! A Cookie! She was probably cold and drawn to the lamp, which is nice and warm. Mind you, she

Daily Photo Reprise: Who’ll Stop the Rain? 2011

On a rainy November afternoon in 2011, Cookie was so unhappy with the cold wet rain that she decided to make fun of my habit of quoting lyrics and titles from  pop songs. I’m not sure which of us was acting more absurd: her for wandering around in the rain,

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 Reprise: I’m NOT an Antique! 2010

For your information, I’m sitting here in the antique shop window because I’m WORKING, I’m NOT FOR SALE! I may be a senior kitty, but that only means I should get respect, not jokes! Why doesn’t somebody move this duck?! Cookie went to work in the shop with me yesterday
