We let her out yesterday and she was gone ALL DAY. ALL DAY. We are guarding her very closely today. ~Mimi, Giuseppe, Sunshine, Mariposa, Jelly Bean, Mewsette, Sienna. (They failed to mention I came home with their favorite food and litter. I owe it to my muses when I share them in my art.)
I gave them that, “If you like to eat…” expression. That really does not compute. They were mad, but they did enjoy their special food that I always get for them after an animal event, and favorite wood pellet litter, which hadn’t been available when I went to get it last week.
That was Sunday, and not only had I been away ALL DAY for my vendor event and then the aforementioned shopping, but I had spent most of last week making things and all were pretty severely neglected, at least compared to the usual level of attention they get. It was in response to the previous Thursday when eight cats happily greeted me and followed me around.
“What a nice greeting. I came back from a meeting and everyone greeted me at the door and followed me into the kitchen. Eight are in this photo, but you can barely see Mariposa, all 10 are in the room. I’m happy to be home.”
And I was really looking forward to sitting at my computer with my feet up and posting on Sunday because I had a special memory to share from around that date. I was also eager to share all the photos of my new display and all the things I had made last week, and then just getting back to all the photos of them I’ve taken around the house and not had the chance to share. I really do miss posting for you! I start composing my posts in my mind long before I get to my computer, and all last week and Saturday I had things all planned. And after 10 years of The Creative Cat I almost don’t know what day of the week it is if I don’t post.
“Late night, but productive.”
Instead, I spent Sunday fixing the minutiae of my in-home network which hasn’t been right since a power outage week before last, and downloading and editing photos when that was done. And resting my hip, which was mighty sore and angry. Seeing the doctor about that soon. And the network update will help getting posts written much more easily when I can access all my digital devices for images and programs.
Then Monday morning…
A set of three black cats sleeping on the job — wait, their job was sleeping. Mimi, Jelly Bean and Bella were still making sure I don’t run off again.
In the meantime, my niece in Savannah has been doing some TNR and rescue at her workplace in Savannah, others I’d been coaching in TNR and rescue were successful, a dear friend lost both of her dogs just a month apart, and always there are sweet memories of my own feline family.
I will get back to my schedule for tomorrow. For today just “hello” and I’m glad you’re here. I’m also going to share my post on Portraits of Animals that shows my new display and a lot of the new handmade things so you can see what I’ve been up to.
