Daily Photo: One Basket

One basket.

Smokie was in the basket learning to be a supervisor of humans and also watching out the window.

But that basket is Mr. Sunshine’s basket. That’s just how it is. Smokie would not leave the basket and got to one of the other two fine feline containers nearby, so Mr. Sunshine just stepped in, turned around, and laid down on top of Smokie.

Smokie was very honored by this. After a while, though, it became difficult to breathe.

2012: I Feel I’m Being Watched

Someone is watching me.

No, I’m not paranoid, I really am being watched by four cats who just can’t understand why I am still hopelessly ignoring their deprivation in the interests of my silly preoccupation. Because it has to be silly, nothing is more important than dinner on time.

“But you must understand our Mama Bernadette,” they say, shaking their heads in disappointment, “she lives by her own clock, and that clock has nothing to do with everyday reality or with our needs. We must alert her to timely things or we’d never be fed.”

It’s true, I was born without an internal clock and generally know what season it is and possibly what day of the week, but what hour of the day it is rarely crosses my mind. My human family shake their heads as well, since they are on time to the absolute second. I am the youngest, the timeliness gene must have worn itself out by the time it got to me.

While I have been diligently working through a good bit of a holiday weekend, below is what my fine felines have been doing for most of it.

Back to my starving felines, I can’t push them too far, I am outnumbered and must attend to their needs. It is feeding time at the zoo, raw meat for the house panthers!

The Perfect Curve, 2010

Kelly Curved

Kelly enjoys a sunbath on an upstairs windowsill, watching the birds, her tail curled in quiet bliss shaping her into a lovely, graceful curve. Too bad you can’t hear her purring.
