Daily Photo: Thinking About Fishes

Bella thinking about fishes.

Bella notices everything, so don’t think she doesn’t know there’s a Pisces medallion behind her ear. She’s aware of composition and hidden meanings, and I suspect she’s a Pisces like me, judging from her rescue timeline. But she was also a champ at the cat fishing game on my tablet, until I dunked it into the dishwater. Someday I’ll have to make that up to her, but in the meantime she is sending me a very clear and colorful message.

Catching Some Sun, 2019

Basil was racing around the kitchen, excited because it was about to be breakfast, when he ran into a patch of sunlight and stopped. What is this stuff? It’s nice and warm! I think I’ll just stand here and cast an interesting shadow for a while…

How Formerly Feral Cats Enjoy Cold Weather, 2018

These three often get together to enjoy some CatTV. If they hadn’t been rescued, though, they wouldn’t be enjoying it through a window, they’d be out there. Not one of them has ever expressed an interest in getting the “real” experience. I enjoy watching them.

Before the tree fell down in 2016 it was in the background along with all its branches, and there was a lilac in front of the window that I let grow and kept trimmed so I could open the window, but it would still provide cover for the birds at this feeder. The birds avoided these feeders almost entirely for over a year, but finally they are showing up here again. Of course the bird populations on the feeder change every moment, and that’s part of the fun. Here is what they were watching.

And Yet More Photos of Jack and Diane

These two!
These two!

At one point while they were doing their thing on the windowsill I just stood there and snapped figuring a few of the had to be good. Well more than a few of them were good, just because kittens are cute. They are at an angle that would make Jack appear larger, but really he’s growing so fast and is noticeably bigger than his sister. Their expressions and posture in the one above just make me smile! My caption was, “These two. Stick a fork in me, I’m done.”

After this the two of them settled themselves into the corner of the windowsill for some intensive birdwatching, but it’s clear Jack doesn’t take it quite as seriously as his sister.

This is my favorite photo out of the whole set.

Below, there is no better toy than a sibling’s tail. They were busy chasing each others’ tails on the windowsill. Jack told Diane, “You bite my tail, and I’m going to bite yours!”
