When I headed out to the hardware store, I very carefully, very quietly, skirted around this little scene of motherly bliss!
Yeah, I was zooming in. The mother normally would have run off, but the little calico was asleep while attached to a nip, and she didn’t want to move.
Interesting thing to note: this is NOT Bradiccus.
I’ve seen Bradiccus nursing this little calico and two others.
I have no idea which cat is the actual mother, now. It seems they are sharing parenting duties.
Then, while heading to the garage, I was actually able to get quite close to these two!
The little black and white one kept staring at me, while the other climbed up next to it, but neither ran away. They are at that clumsy movement stage, and running away isn’t something they can do very well just yet. 😀
Oh, those blue, blue eyes!
Oh, that big a$$ mosquito on the one kitten!
After picking up the parts needed to fix the kitchen sink and heading home, I just had to pull over to get this picture.
Using the wide angle setting actually picked up more detail than I could see from inside the car. Mostly, I was seeing those very smooth layers of clouds in the distance.
Not long after I got home, the storm reached us. I’m glad I remembered to shut down my computer! We had power fluctuations long enough to reset some clocks. My husband was asleep at the time, which means that every time the power went out, so did his CPAP, which meant he suddenly couldn’t breathe anymore.
Thankfully, it didn’t happen too often, and the power never went out completely for more than a few seconds. Internet connectivity was interrupted more, though. I didn’t turn my computer back on until just before uploading pictures for this post, but I did try to watch some TV with Roku. Original Star Trek series. 😀 At one point, we were loosing signal for longer than we were getting it. We weren’t losing our internet completely, though. According to the StarLink app, we lost connection twice – once for 1 minute, 3 seconds, and one for 41 seconds, and neither of those were at times while I was trying to watch the show. I had my phone with me, and could still access the internet, so whatever the interruption was for the streaming service, it was not at our end.
Right now, however, it’s looking bright and sunny again. Time to head out and check if there was any storm damage.
And see if the kitties are out again… 🙂
