Daily Photo: Socks

Smokie sorts the socks.

Smokie helps me with the laundry, sorting the socks. Who says cats can’t see color? Looking at his display, well…

I had a great time rolling them up in a ball and tossing them at him to catch. He was up to the task, and he’s ready for more!

What other photos have I posted on or around this date?


Mimi Gives the Snow Another Try, 2013

“Okay, so I’m here! Now will you make it stop?”

After initially turning right around and heading for the furnace vent as soon as I opened the back door, Mimi did eventually agree to come outside with me as I filled the bird feeders. She wants everyone to know she is a tough former street cat and is not at all bothered by snow or ice or anything, it’s just that some days she’s not in the mood.

Today, however, I stopped back between transports and she just wanted to be with me. I didn’t have to coax her to come back in as usual though.

The snow was falling so heavily we had a hard time seeing each other.

Jelly Bean’s Spa Day, 2012

Jelly Bean’s Spay Day.

Mr. Sunshine gives Bean a thorough massage while brother Giuseppe gives him a thorough bath. All Bean wants to do is sleep. I covered him with my dishtowel hoping he’d get some peace and quiet, but how much peace and quiet can you get in the middle of the kitchen? It seemed to turn out well, though, at least I didn’t hear any disagreements and later they were all sleeping. Seems like a good Saturday to me!

I Knight Thee…2011

Sir Giuseppe knights Jelly of Bean.

“In the name of My Most Royal Majesty, the Queen Mother Bernadette, I knight thee. Arise, Sir Jelly of Bean.”

“Who died and left you Knight of the Realm?”

“Shut up, you little twit, act dignified.”

“You’re having delusions of grandeur.”

“You don’t even know what that means!”

“Get your filthy paw off my head or you’ll be having delusions of a lot of other things too.”

“You’re lucky I don’t take your ear off.”

“If I have to call you ‘Sir Giuseppe’ I’m going to puke.”

“Let’s get back to our regularly scheduled wrestling match.”


Giuseppe and Jelly Bean really do wrestle in front of this window just about every morning. I love it when there’s a pawse in the action.
