Vintage Photo: Get a Bath, Pay It Forward, 2010

In photos from this day in August 2010, Dickie, Kelly and Cookie have a chain reaction bath. You get a free bath, you return the favor by giving a free bath to someone else. First, Dickie, the main bath giver of the time, stopped Kelly and gave her a bath

Daily Photo Reprise: Cookie in the Pasta Bowl, 2010

This was the first one of all! Good thing I checked the bowl before I filled it with the mellowed fresh tomatoes and balsamic vinaigrette! I warmed my big round pasta bowl in the oven, then set it on the counter while I ran outside to get a couple branches

Daily Photo Reprise: A Little Dose of Afternoon Sweetness, 2011

From August 16, 2012: I have a video to share of total sweetness in a kitty. You might remember that Kelly was my Lead Crochet Tester, and that she immediately occupied anything crocheted in any form—under construction, headed for the wash, being worn by me, it didn’t matter, when Kelly

Daily Sketch Reprise: Kelly Has a Drink, 2012

What legs! Kelly really does have long legs, especially when she does her drinking dance, solidly planting all four paws, then prancing her hind paws and waving her tail while she drinks. There’s something so precious about Kelly drinking; I think it has to do with her timid nature, yet

Daily Photo Reprise: Kelly the Studio Cat

I’ve been waiting for this one to come around. Of all the photos I have of Kelly from the 16 years she lived with me—and there were very, very many—this photo is my favorite, and can you believe she is 17 years old in this photo? Kelly never seemed to

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,

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
