Daily Photo: Mariposa Exploring Downstairs

Yesterday was bight and sunny and Mariposa finally decided to come all the way down the stairs and explore. It’s a whole new world!

Below, the photo is a little blurry, but she is still so pretty.

Mariposa really wants to play! Hamlet didn’t realize he was in her target area. More from Mariposa’s adventures yesterday.

Hamlet wasn't aware he was in Mariposa's swing area.

Then she made her way over to the shop area.

Later, she joined Mimi and me in the studio, Mimi on one thigh and Mariposa on the other.

How it started out.

Donate for a Discount

Many of my readers have often been generous in helping with the costs associated with rescues and other issues needing funding. Long ago I began a program I called “Donate For a Discount”. I will give you a gift certificate toward shopping on my website in thanks—for every $25.00 you donate in goods or cash I’ll give you a gift certificate for $5.00 off a minimum $25.00 purchase. You can read more about it on this page on Portraits of Animals.

Or Buy Something for Mariposa!

Or purchase Mariposa her current favorite food on! I am an Amazon affiliate and get a few cents for each purchase on the link below. AND if you shop using Amazon Smile you can choose the Homeless Cat Management Team as your charity and send a little bit to them too!
