Daily Photo: Lazy Office Supurrvisors

Lazy office supurrvisors.

Today’s office supurrvisors. Looks like I’ll be able to get away with anything I want. Sunshine’s belly is as soft and pettable as it looks. Mariposa is making little happy noises each time she stretches and changes position. She is actually air kneading upside down with those big white mittens. I’m about to faint from the cuteness.

This was actually from one day last week. I’ve been boring the felines again with working—I’m getting ready for my upcoming Panhandle Trail exhibit. And if that was a lot of work already, it’s even more time-consuming with a bad hip! I can’t believe how long it takes me to get things done. So I owe everyone an apology—the kitties for late meals and less attention, and you for posting when it seems I darned well please. I’ve also been continuing to work on my basement as I clean it and convert it back to my printing studio, and keeping up with the rest of the house. I used to fly around and not even remember doing these things! Not so right now. Things will be back to normal next week, especially since I’m preparing for Pet Memorial Sunday. Wow, where has the time gone?!

So all the current photos in this post are from Instagram because, when it’s just too much work to get to my computer to post here, I can at least post a photo on Instagram and Photoshop to let the world know I’m still here.

Some deep feline existential considerations filling the kitchen this morning.

Thanks to Deana for the care package from your garden! One can never have too many fresh vegetables. Unless one is a cat who is wondering why there is never any catnip or mice in these loads of useless vegetables.

Cats are still wondering about this vegetable thing.

Good thing I removed that casserole so Mariposa could have a cozy spot to cuddle and wash her big white paws. Because those big white paws must be kept sparkling white.

An interesting heart-shaped nap with little grasshopper Basil all grown up and his big ninja sensei Giuseppe, curled up in the kitchen while I make a pot of soup, just like the old days when Basil was a frightened little kitten and Giuseppe showed him the world. There’s even a sort of little heart inside the heart.

Mimi’s favorite scratching post. The bark on the river birches is irresistible, she says. I’ll take her word for it. In the meantime, thunder is rolling in from the southwest, so our outdoor time is limited.

Mimi lured me over to the wicker loveseat so she could steal my rocker. She has no regrets.

Daily Photo: Cats and Tomatoes, 2018

“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.

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!

Independence Day

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!

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.
