Yesterday, I got started on making covers for our big fish tank, to keep the cats out. Today, I assembled the first one. Of course, things did not go to plan. Does anything ever? 😀 One of the things I needed to figure out was how to secure the hardware cloth to the frame pieces, … Continue reading Converting the fish tank to a cat proof greenhouse, part 2: changed plans
What an intense gaze in the beady black eye!

We brought him indoors to better treat his eyes; they were never as bad as his brother David's, … Continue reading Oh, to have the life of our cats
The way this blue jay's head is set, it looks like he has big, fluffy eyebrows!
I just had to pause for a picture when I saw these guys, watching me when I came outside this morning. These guys know well enough to stay out of the wind, even if they can see fresh food and water is about to be dispensed! 😀 Except this little Spice Boy, who has a … Continue reading Morning kitties, and apparently we had a storm
