Daily Photo Reprise: Cookie Picks Her Own Sweet Corn, 2011

If there was any doubt that Cookie liked sweet corn, she proved it wrong every time I brought some into the house, whether it was from my garden or from the market. Last year, I barely had time to remove the salad greens and peppers from the basket before Cookie

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. Cookie and Kelly decidedly do not look at me when I take their photo. I should be feeding them lunch, not fooling around with that thing I put in front

Beat the Heat With Water for Pets, Wildlife—and People

Hot weather is miserable, no matter the temperature where your own personal heat tolerance ends. Many people think that since some animals live in the wild and seem to survive, all animals can survive the heat “naturally”. Nothing could be further from the truth for either our pets or the

Daily Photo Reprise: Sweet Dreams, and a…Tomato for Your Pillow, 2011

When a kitty is really tired, anything will do for a bed and pillow. I was kidding Cookie about perhaps having had a little ” ‘nip” and being, um, a little out of sorts. She sat up, washed her face and had a drink of water, but later she was

Daily Sketch Reprise: Kelly Relaxing, 2012 and Sanguine Nap, 2013

The top of the stool is apparently the perfect circumference for Kelly as she relaxes there while enjoying the fan in this hot weather, one leg and a tail dangling off the edge. That is one relaxed Kelly. . . . . . . . What else was I sketching

Daily Photo Reprise: The Secret to Kelly’s Green Eyes, 2012

Kelly does have very bright green eyes, especially when she sits in the sun. I would never question her natural color until today when I walked in on her in my studio… “Oh, no,” Kelly said, “I’m found out!” “Well,” she concluded, “I can only say it pays to be

Daily Photo Reprise: Hugging My Cookie for Hug Your Cat Day

Yes, hugging Cookie and giving her a scratch on the chin, just the way she liked it! In August 2011 when I was promoting Great Rescues Calendar and Gift Book the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette published an article in the South/West edition about me and my artwork, Carnegie Artist Creates Calendar of

Daily Photo Reprise: How Do You Like Them Apples? 2011

One of my favorites photos of Cookie! Not sure if Cookie was espousing the apple-a-day ideal, but she sure seemed to be enjoying sitting in the sun. Or perhaps she was worried about the apples. Cookie did things like that, sat near things that needed to be fixed or moved

Daily Photo Reprise: Sweet Dreams, 2012

Another somewhat abstract photo of a kitty in the sun. I love how it shines into the windows at this time of the year, illuminating odd areas and bouncing around the room like magic. And of course sleepy kitties search out the best spots for a relaxing nap. Here Kelly

Daily Photo Reprise: Easy Like Sunday, 2011

I actually went upstairs periodically through the afternoon and photographed them as they displayed all possible attitudes of relaxation on the bed in my shady bedroom on a hot afternoon. Mimi usually sleeps in a ball but here relaxes, stretching her legs to touch Mr. Sunshine who is curled, head
