Daily Sketch Reprise: Quiet Sunday

A dark and quiet Sunday afternoon led to long, still naps in the shadows of the afternoon bedroom. Jelly Bean uses Giuseppe as a pillow, which Sunshine curls in a tight ball by the pillows. Needless to say, I didn’t really have to hurry to catch this one—they really weren’t

Things I Found in the Woods, Poetry and Memories

Every year the winter opens up to a few days of warm intoxicating sun and mud in January or February, and I’ve run outside to celebrate the day. In 2012 it was February 5, two days after Cookie died, and as I enjoyed the warm day without her and remembered

Daily Photo: Bella in Blues and Purples

Photographing black cats is a challenge, and in many areas in my house the lighting is a challenge as well, which makes for a lot of neat photos that aren’t quite in focus, just a little soft. Even when I manually set my DSLR, the shutter speed is still fairly

Daily Photo: Two Cats Bath Sequence

Daily Photo: Choices, Choices

First world kitten dilemmas. What to do? All the toys look enticing in the sun, even to the human, and Smokie just can’t choose which one to start with—because you can be sure he’s going to play with all of them before the morning is done! He chooses the green

Daily Photo: Mademoiselle, I Tried My Best

My dearest lady Mlle. Daisy Emerald Marguerite, I must sadly report that I will not gaze into your most emerald eyes nor share the purple fancies in your red brocade bed to celebrate this holiday of love. I tried my best once again, and even that was not good enough

Daily Photo: A Few More of Bert–oops, Simon!

Yes, Bert’s name is now Simon, and it’s such a natural for him that I took to it right away and forgot he was called Bert for quite some time! I have a few of my favorites here along with a few from his adopter, Christy, who has been sharing

Daily Photo: A Few of Ernie

Ernie liked to let one paw dangle as far as it would go, so of course I had to lie on the floor and photograph him like that! Usually, by the time I got the camera in place Ernie was up and trying to help me. This time, I just
