Sunday Afternoon Nap

Give me a warm place
where I can curl up
and close my eyes,
a soft cushion,
a secluded place
where That Other Cat
won’t bother me,
and just

April Poetry ~ from The Cat

because i’m your cat
i shall sit here
with my pretty little white paws
my tail delicately curved
and my full belly expanding
and stare at you 
you give in
and if that does not work
i will chase follow you
throughout the house
and meow at you
in my cutest voice
until you see
that i want you
to pay attention only to me
while you pet me
scratch under my chin
and make all those
loving silly sounds
and, of course,
feed me
in return
i will purr my loudest
making you think
that you are the cause of it all
you humans
take a while to catch on
but i am patient
and will continue 
this same routine
so i can get 
what i want
which is
your total

Even the cat who owns me likes poetry. Who knew?

On a lighter note

Yeller and Rossfeld

It’s been one of those weeks. 
A bit stressful here and there, a lot of digging deep and growing. 

So it’s time to let my furry friends appear and send us off for the weekend.

I was trying to get a close up of the leaves you see in the foreground, and what should pop up through all that green but an orange cat!  Not until I downloaded this to the computer did I see the other cat in the background.  Judging by the slant of their ears I think a chase was about to happen.  

Oh well.  Just one of the hazards of being a photographer….

Have a fabulous weekend!


Snowy morning

 There is a bit of snow here today, filling spaces both large and small.
How much snow? About this much.
And it is lovely, even if it is a heavy snow.
Yeller wants to go play in it, but the scraping sound of the shovel scares him.
And Rossfeld just finds a warm register to sit by, while keeping an eye on that Other Cat.
