Oy vey. It's past midnight as I write this, and it has suddenly become a rather unpleasant night! I was returning from the bathroom when, while walking past the old basement door, I heard a splashing sound I should not have been hearing, so I went down to take a look. The septic backed up … Continue reading Well, it’s a good thing we cleaned up the outhouse
Whenever I head out to feed the yard cats these days, I do a head count! 😀 There are "only" eight kittens in the photo, with Nosencrantz and Toesencrantz eating at the kibble tray under the shrine. I was happy to see Nutmeg still around. He's the one Rolando Moon is hissing at. 😀 There … Continue reading Morning fur babies
This is an "almost" first for me. I've made a few little videos now and then, with minimal editing, to post here on the blog. Years ago, I used to make videos on DVDs of photos for my parents, set to music and with chapters, etc. Since we were so far away, I thought it … Continue reading Our 2021 Garden, fall tour video
Look who was willing to come an eat, while I was still close by! Little Toesencrantz normally won't come to the food until I've moved away. Nosencrantz was letting me pet her and was purring, so that might be helping. This evening, my daughter was thrilled to let me know that when the topped up … Continue reading Morning kitties
When I start my morning rounds by putting kibble out for the outside cats is when we see the most cats and kittens all at once. I made a point of trying to count all the kittens this morning. Yesterday, I counted twelve. This morning, I counted eleven. I caught a baby, over on the … Continue reading Counting kittens, and bonus Cabbages
After realizing we had an extra kitten yesterday, I made a point of doing a head count this morning. I had to be careful not to move too much, or I'd scare them away, so I only got this one photo. I have an arrow pointing to all the kittens in the photo, plus the … Continue reading Twelve??
Sometimes, when I am awakened by cats using me as a bed, the only way I can tell which cat has trapped me is by taking a picture! Especially when I've got one or two more of the on my chest. 😀 Apparently, Tissue finds my legs make a perfect hammock. 😀 While I was … Continue reading Morning kitties; trapped! Also… who is that?
There's nothing like heading outside to do my morning rounds, and being greeted by so many kitties! It's going to be hard to tell those tabbies apart. 😀 Ghost Baby even made an appearance this morning. She is very shy and skittish, so I didn't try to move any closer to get a photo. My … Continue reading Ghost Baby appears, and that’s a LOT of dill!
Would you look at this adorable face! Yes, Nosencrantz allowed me to pet her again this morning! She still won't let me walk up to her to pet her, but only lets me pet her at the food tray, but she doesn't quite run away, either. Elevator butt. 😀 Gosh, she looks so much like … Continue reading Kitty noses
I got to give Nosencrantz full body pets this morning! She hadn't even started eating yet when she let me pet her - and she was purring! Then she joined her Grandma Butterscotch for breakfast. 🙂 Do you see that orange over on the far right? That's Rolando Moon. She's still around! It looks like … Continue reading Morning kitties and morning harvest
