Daily Photo: Thinking About Staying Home For Once?

The boys are getting a good look at me.

The boys are getting a good look at me before I leave the house once again lest they forget what I look like. At least I know they miss me.

That Darned Catbird! 2016

Mimi is just about over that catbird and all her chatter! She stopped her bath to glare in the direction of all the noise. And then the darned catbird had the gall to start meowing!

Daily Photo Reprise: Time Out for Charm, 2015

I posted a few photos on Facebook today and forgot to add them to today’s daily photo post! But here they are…

Chipmunk! But wait–one of those cats is distinctly NOT a sleek black housepanther! No, it’s Charm, enjoying a little kitten-free time. She’s been locked in a 6′ x 6′ bathroom with five kittens for four weeks and she is over that. She tested negative for everything when she was spayed and really needs to gain some weight so we are all about relieving some of her stress and she has had some time out each day.

Mimi fully understands this exact issue.

And Charm is self-medicating…

Charm also has an interested adopter! Even though she’s a little underweight this particular adopter would understand, and she was also interested in adopting Zorro. Speaking of Zorro, I caught the sweetest photo of her today when I opened the bathroom door and posted it on Facebook…

Just now. Don't you just love Zorro? She'll be ready to go this Sunday!

And I posted this one on Wednesday just to be silly. It looks like all the extra photos and a little video worked because we have several applications on little Zee.

Ha ha! I am Zorro and I took a selfie!

And I have been posting photos of the others to help them be adopted and not posting photos of the little bit, but here she is, crazy in the sink, little Splash!

Daily Photo: Watching the Sky Change

Basil watched me work outside the window in the early evening, and also watched the birds in the trees and the clouds going by. Always have the camera ready, you never know when you’ll get an interesting shot. Even though the screen shows as a pattern it’s still interesting. The colors in the background are the opposite hill in full evening sun seen through my back door on the other side of the kitchen.

A neat desk is a sign that you don’t have enough cats. On the flipside, they also give you an excuse for a messy desk. The boys made the most of their supervisory shift yesterday. I don’t think they will ever outgrow cuddling.

The Magic Shopping Bag, 2012

Same boys, three years ago.

I unpacked my groceries when I got home, and just as I thought I had emptied the bag I turned around and there was a black kitty in there! Where did he come from?! I didn’t go to the store where they have kitties for adoption, so how could a kitty have gotten into my bag, and under all my groceries?

Then I saw the white brushes in the kitty’s ears—it was Jelly Bean! And he had neatly hopped into my really big and tall shopping bag without touching the sides. What a kitty! Then he jumped back out without touching the sides.

Not to be outdone, Mr. Sunshine was next. “Take my picture please,” said the confident Mr. Sunshine, waiting patiently while I focused on his nose.

And then Giuseppe saw what was up, and you know that all three boys have to do the same things together. Giuseppe hadn’t been in on the beginning so he wasn’t sure what to do. Still, when Mr. Sunshine jumped out of the bag, Giuseppe jumped in and sat down to look at me. “Is this what I’m supposed to do? Am I just supposed to sit here?” he asked. Giuseppe is a little bit of a worrier.

“That’s perfect, Giuseppe,” I told him. “Just stay exactly as you are while I take your photo…and in fact, you can stay just exactly as you are forever, all of you, because you’re all such perfectly nice kitties!”

So that’s the story of the Magic Shopping Bag, silly but true.

These three really have to stop this sort of thing. I have work to do and I can’t be distracted by such serious cuteness. Mimi, Sunshine, Jelly Bean.

Mimi looks miffed, possibly because of the snow (see below), Mr. Sunshine looks like he’s making a face by sticking out his tongue (he and Bean had been giving Mimi a big bath), and Bean just looks like he’s there and he’s cute and nothing more is needed.
