Daily Photo: Visitors

Giuseppe gives Judi some tech support.

We’ve had several important visitors recently, and the Five have discharged their duties as guardians of the household and supervisors of all activity with absolute excellence. Above, Giuseppe assists Aunt Judi with some laptop issues. Below, Judi greets Mimi and Bean on the rocker as soon as she enters, and Mr. Sunshine gives his approval of her by leaning on her shins and ceremoniously placing one of his hind paws on top of one her feet—and I thought I was the only one who had earned that distinction!

After a job well done Giuseppe tucks his large self into the crook of Judi’s arm; it was meant for him.

“We like visitors,” Giuseppe says just before he falls asleep. Judi is Judi Stadler, owner of Carnegie Antiques and human to Holly of “Holly on the Rocker” and a number of other rescued cats as well; we were working on her website.

Dr. Michelle stopped by to visit the Five, and to purchase a print. She was greeted by everyone, and even brought a gift which was immediately put to use along with the quality organic catnip—imagine, a catnip party in the middle of the afternoon!

Then first she made a nice soft bed for Mr. Sunshine…

…and when a nap with his brothers called him away, Mimi announced that Dr. Michelle’s lap now belonged to her…

…just right for a thorough bath and a good nap. Dr. Michelle Elgersma is the mobile veterinary acupuncturist who visited Emeraude and Lakota.

And the Five are not happy that their human forgot to document a visit from Aunt Amby a while back—and this woman is important! She lives with Angus and Donal, two of Mimi’s other sons, Lucy’s brothers and half-brothers to the Fantastic Four!

      Judi, they still want to meet your llama. Thanks for amusing my cats for a while!

      Years ago I had customers come to my house to drop off design and typesetting work and my cats were in heaven–they waited by the door! Now it’s unusual so they shove each other out of the way to get the person. I love sharing them, Georgia and Julie!
