The morning rounds, as usual, started with a visit to the kitties.
I fully expected to find a couple at the top of the stairs, as has been the usual thing lately.
Nope. Just Beep Beep.
The other usual thing is to go down the stairs and find the kittens not already on the stairs, coming sleepily out from under the platform bed frame, where they’ve created a nest.
Not this morning!
Beep Beep jumped into the pile faster than I could get my phone out for a picture, but all the kittens had been on the chair, curled up in a furry mass, sleeping!
The outdoor part of my morning rounds went rather quickly, because I was being eaten by mosquitoes! Every time I paused to take a picture, I would be attached by clouds of them!
The first of my mother’s poppies has opened up.
The dwarf lilac by the house is just a riot of flowers!
This other variety of lilac, planted by the chain link fence, doesn’t have a lot of flowers, but the few clusters is does have are starting to open.
When feeding the outside cats, I saw some faces that have not been around as much, lately.
Junk Pile cat has been hanging around, even if I only see him in passing, but it’s been a while since I’ve seen Butterscotch. I was happy to see Rosencrantz show up.
While checking the garden plots and switching memory cards on the trail cams, I got some company.
Creamsicle came to join me and wanted attention. 🙂
Butterscotch came along this time, too.
Then this happened!!!
Her boy went into a full-on attack! I couldn’t believe it! He wouldn’t stop, either. I broke them up several times, until I just couldn’t catch up with them. Each time, Butterscotch would run off, and Creamsicle would run right after her and attack as soon as he reached her!
What a terrible son!
I am not impressed.
