    Something shiny on the catio. This screened-in porch allows prime backyard bird watching for both felines and people. (Household cats, indoors only. Household people occasionally go outside.)

  • Our cat Posey started joining us for morning yoga. She sprawls on the middle of my mat, and then rolls around, while meowing a LOT. It’s not very meditative with her there, nor is it easy to move around her; but I never tire of her antics.

    Happy Microblogvember.

  • Look! No one is biting anyone’s ears. No one is swatting anyone’s face. No one is hissing or using bad language. We are being VERY GOOD sitting nicely together. It only took two years. 🐈

  • "You like cats," she said.

    A statement, not a question: we were both wearing face masks with cat pictures, in the check-out line. I nodded.

    “I got eleven of them, twelve if you count the one buried in the yard.” Seeing my interest, she added, “And I got two possums, three raccoons, and a couple of rats.”

    She told me that one of the raccoons comes up to the sliding door because she feeds it hot dogs.

    I said, “If I were a raccoon, I would show up for hot dogs.”

    We nodded together about hot dogs. And then I had to pay, and go.

  • The Office Cats are in. They love these cat ball beds. Especially because I put them next to the radiator.

  • New Year’s Day began with a moment of peace, before the black and white one realized she was being snuggled, and left in a huff.

  • Year in Review, March 2020: the Catio

    For the first time, I’m doing a yearly review using this template from Ness Labs. However, I’d like to do a photographic year in review, right here. Let’s start with Posey, who is on our screened-in porch, now known as the “catio.” This is early spring, 2020, ten days before our state issued a stay-at-home order for the pandemic.
