Daily Photos: From November 1

Organizing your cats.

How to keep your cats organized while working in the kitchen. Mimi, Mr. Sunshine, Giuseppe, Basil.

Time to catch up with the photos you’ve been missing! This photo is from November 1. I hope to be able to keep up with things from here!

November 5

Big and little, no longer camouflaged in summer grass. The trees are dropping leaves by the bucket today.

For the women who fought and even died for my right to do this, I vote. For all those who fought to create and maintain this democracy, I vote. For all those who even today fight to get democracy, I vote. For my immigrant grandparents who couldn’t even imagine what democracy was coming from a life so different, I vote, and I thank them for their courage to come here so that I can enjoy this basic privilege of democracy. Do it! Not just for you but for so many others!

I voted.

“We are not amused.”
Not Mewsette nor Mimi nor Giuseppe nor Sienna thought it was funny when I offered some of my soup for lunch.

They don't like my lunch.

It’s blurry, but I couldn’t pass up the serious instruction by Mimi so that Mariposa would know the importance of immediately getting into an open dresser drawer with nice cushy sweaters by whatever means necessary.

“Hi. Whatcha doin? Do you see my big white mittens?”
Mariposa is eager to help no matter what I’m doing.

Big cuddle puddle behind the door. It’s like they’re crawling back into the womb. Mimi is glad that’s just a metaphor, though.

Basil and Mimi enjoyed a wonderful sunny morning yesterday. This doesn’t happen until nearly all the leaves fall, and we miss the leaves but we love the sun.

A great spot for a cozy nap on a cold rainy day. Guess I’ll put the towels away another time. Mimi had a little urinary issue late last week, similar to last year at the same time. I called my vet and Dr. Michelle and treated her symptoms. She cleared up quickly and in the evening was well enough to come out from her warm spot to run and hop into the wardrobe just as I was about to put the towels away. “Me, sick? Surely you mean some other cat. I’m fine.” She does need to have her senior exam soon though.

Three rescued cats inside a warm kitchen on a cold, cold, rainy day. Keeping an eye on my lunch. Sienna, Hamlet and Basil.

Read about other cats for adoption, and my foster cats.

Donate for a Discount

Many of my readers have often been generous in helping with the costs associated with rescues and other issues needing funding. Long ago I began a program I called “Donate For a Discount”. I will give you a gift certificate toward shopping on my website in thanks—for every $25.00 you donate in goods or cash I’ll give you a gift certificate for $5.00 off a minimum $25.00 purchase. You can read more about it on this page on Portraits of Animals.

Or Buy Something for My Fosters!

Mariposa and Sienna are fosters, and even though I am not fostering other cats I am assisting and supporting one other litter right now, as well as answering a lot of questions for those who are trapping and socializing and those who are planning to trap—honestly, one of the reasons I run out of time to post during the day.

I am an Amazon affiliate and get a few cents for each purchase on the link below which includes food for the household  and for Mariposa, who is still eating by herself in the bathroom, and calming collars. I feed four tall cans of food a day to the nine adult cats and two or three cans of Fancy Feast to Mariposa. She was doing very well with her calming collar, but stopped venturing downstairs when it kind of “ran out” after more than a month. Hamlet was really doing well with the collar, but he doesn’t like to wear the Sentry brand that is scented with lavender, and he really needs to wear the collar, not just have me rub it on him.

AND if you shop using Amazon Smile you can choose the Homeless Cat Management Team as your charity and send a little bit to them too!
