Daily Photo: Cats and Tomatoes

“She’s really excited about these things. We don’t get it.”

That’s okay, they don’t need to be excited about the tomatoes. I’m ready for tomato time. Despite all the wandering and working around in the garden Mimi and I have done the groundhog still invaded and ate all the leaves off my smallish tomato plants. I’ve moved them and they’ll recover, but not in enough time for me to get my summer’s worth of tomatoes. But they really couldn’t figure out what I was so excited about.

And because I’ve had some errands the past few days Mimi has not had her outdoor time. Rain and then storms moved in today but she was in no mood to wait for them to pass, or be patient until tomorrow. We went out in the rain, with me running behind her.

Mimi in the rain.

Mewsette chills in the shade under one of my dresses this morning as I hang out the laundry and she and her mom enjoy some fresh air. She fits purr-fectly in the shade.

Celebrating Independent Thought on Independence Day, 2016

I completely forgot to share this at the beginning of this month!

Four black cats and a watermelon. Each cat has his own independent opinion. It is, after all, Independence Day.

I set the watermelon on the cabinet just to see what would happen. This.

All About the Kids, 2015

Somehow Charm ended up tucked into Basil’s tail and a fold in the rug on the top of the cabinet. They were all very busy today, before the fireworks started, official and otherwise, mostly keeping track of the wildlife outside the windows. The squirrel was trying to raid this feeder all day long, and if you ask Basil and Bella and Charm they came darned close to getting that pest! But I guess it was Basil’s turn to keep a lookout at the side window and Charm was watching the front window. Or she was just being cute as she is so good at being.

Below, a couple of photos posted on Facebook today of Bella and Basil and Charm.

Ssshhhh…..nobody move or even breathe…the squirrel is RIGHT THERE.

The squirrel is RIGHT THERE!
The squirrel is RIGHT THERE!

Charm just successfully stalked and captured a bread crust, carried it to me from the kitchen loudly announcing her arrival, and proceeded to drop it on the floor by my chair and demonstrate the best way to kill and eat it, glancing up at me to see if I was paying attention and making encouraging chirps. Once a mom, always a mom, I guess. Mimi still does that now and then. Seems I’m a little deficient in that area.

Charm brings me her kill.

“I have vanquished the blue fuzzy!”

Mewsette emerges into the sun with the blue fuzzy she has chased around and around and around my room until finally she captured it and presents it to me.

I am honored.

Her triumphal stance is priceless.
