Bookends of the day

My Friday started with dropping Suzi off at her work and hopping on MAX. After getting home, I sat down and Hazel and Gilligan immediately joined me.

In between, I spent my day in a large, complex spreadsheet and a nearly 5-mile 1:1.1Sorry, no pics from either. ;-)

All in all, not a bad day. :-)

Can we all get along?

With apologies to Rodney King, can we all just get along?

Shadow Cat

We awoke this morning to the sun streaming in the windows and a cat sitting on the window sill. This was the shadow on the bedroom wall.

Cat in a Pup Tent

Hazel enjoys being where she thinks she shouldn’t be.1I’m doing my part to increase the cattitude of the Internet … and it’s not even Friday. ;-)

Our Christmas Tree is Getting Dressed

Our tree has lights, ribbons, and a skirt. Tomorrow, it will get ornaments.

Of greater interest to our cats Hazel and Ginger is the train that circles its base. Whap! Derailed, again…

Update. It’s done!

Birdwatching Cats

I’m not sure who’s having more fun with the feeders: the birds, us, or the cats. Whenever we open the windows, the cars sit on the sills and study the birds.

Cats and Kids

We have two cats.

They have every reason to be the same. They are from the same litter, have the same parents. They were raised together, by their mother and family, and then by our family.

But they aren’t the same. Ginger is black and Hazel is gray.

More importantly, Ginger knows how to get my attention. She follows me through the house. She jumps up on the bed in the morning and kneads me. She paws me when I’m at the computer. When I pick her up and scratch behind her ears, she purrs immediately. Ginger loves my attention.

Hazel, well Hazel is a cat. She doesn’t ask for attention. She watches me from a “safe” distance. She doesn’t jump up on my bed. She doesn’t paw me. When I pick her up and scratch behind her ears, she is slow to purr. Yet, Hazel loves my attention.

We have four kids.

Cats in the Sink

Our cats, Hazel and Ginger, cuddle in the sink. They’re making the best of being locked in the bathroom while I clean the aquarium.


Yeah, I’m catblogging and it’s not even Friday. Such are the joys of being owned by a cat.
