Sienna thinks she might like to try her paw at painting.
Judging my shipping #supurrvisor #siennafostertortie ‘s tail activity my performance is not meeting expectations.
WHAT A PURRFECT MORNING! The sun is shining, it’s clear and low humidity, everything is blooming, Mimi feels great, I’m seriously having trouble focusing!
Mimi had a little bee visitor! She was napping on the step–sleeping on the job watching me in the garden–and the bee circled around me and then buzzed up to Mimi and circled around her. Of course I caught the moment before she woke up from her nap and opened her eyes, though she followed it insistently around as it circled her, I couldn’t catch a picture of that.
Basil is known for his dramatic solutions to everyday cat problems. Here he literally goes to great lengths to sweep up the last morsels left on Sienna’s breakfast dish. The span between Basil’s back toes and front toes is 24″, from his back toes to his nose is 30″.

Mariposa Cute and Bunny Cute, 2020
Mariposa is cute no matter what she does, especially when she’s watching a baby bunny who is inching onto the patio from the garden. I call Mariposa my little bunny because sometimes she hops like a bunny.
Here’s the little bunny she was watching, a young cottontail learning its way around the yard. I took the photo through the screen door so it has an interesting softened pattern to it.
Mariposa wears her eartip proudly!

Interesting Formations, 2019
Sometimes I just don’t know what to do when Mimi and her kids go into a mode of patterns and formations, sometimes adding other feline household members too. The best I can do is just take a lot of pictures.
Yesterday first the four got themselves into a rather meditative formation, then Mimi came and sat near them with some intention.
After a while, they all got up and shuffled around and ended up in some disarray, but a nice disarray.
Then I looked again and they had all turned their backs on me, four in the back and one in front.
So I got my camera and walked all around them. They were roughly facing the front door.
Then Mariposa saw them and came to sit on the stool.
And they all stayed like that.
It never ceases to amaze me how they act together as a group. But setting themselves up in a row sitting with one crouching in front? I just don’t know. I just know I love them.

Exciting New Grocery Boxes, 2017
Maximum capacity of this box is one Jelly Bean and one Mr. Sunshine less Sunshine’s tail which apparently doesn’t fit.
Below, Basil has his very own grocery box. I can see I should get bigger boxes.
Glad to be home and off my feet for a while.
You may see a few extra photo posts for a few days. I’ve been getting so behind in posting the ones from Instagram. My plan is to share them here when I share them on IG so you get to see them somewhere near the day I took them.
This will all even out eventually! Shows and studio time make it difficult but we are adjusting.
