    I got a good picture tonight of Cotton. He is the sweetest thing. He always, every single time, gets on the lawnmower while I am making rounds of the various cat feeding stations, and he wants me...

    Yesterday at church, a woman came up to me so excited. She had a present for me. She had found this sweater and just KNEW that I had to have it. I guess I am forever known now among my friends and...

    The near collision.

    I just got home from my long Sunday round, pulled into the driveway, switched off the car, opened the door, and stepped out - onto Bagheera. Fortunately, I registered the...

    The Razor Baby - Pilgrim. He prefers the baby style of upside down in arms, but there absolutely must be a prelude of painfully vigorous kneading right-side-up in the lap. This cannot be aborted by...

    Melody is a bit skittish, actually. She's settling in, and I'm happy to see her looking more composed lately, but she is quick to disappear with visitors.

    And Sarge is looking more composed...

    Some of the cats on a sunny afternoon.

    A very careful trip down the steps (for me. Doesn't bother them at all)

    I wish I'd had a video of me getting home just now from an aide shift. It was very cold last night and still when I left this morning but has warmed up quite a bit and is brightly sunny now. All...

    Tina hasn't been seen in weeks. Given her personality, she is a prime candidate to be living on the fringes and never be seen, but I think probably something happened to her. I will wear her fang...

    The calico was L'Chaim. She was gorgeous, looked like a coral snake. I have never seen a prettier patched one myself. She died about two years ago, sigh. She was from the shelter. One of my...

    Love the commercial!

    Teaching them about the keyboard is more complicated than the Second Commandment just because the keyboard has four permissible sides as long as they stay off the keyboard...
  11. Commandment #1: "Thou shalt not step upon the...

    Commandment #1: "Thou shalt not step upon the keyboard." I am hooked in live to hospital databases on my job. A kitty prance across the keys could be a lot more than an inconvenient oops.

  12. Lap Turnovers and the Third Feline Commandment

    Boy, does Tenuto know the three Household Feline Commandments, the third of which states, "Thou shalt not covet the lap upon which a previous cat is already installed." In other words, limit of one...
  13. Coda does not knead. She came from a good...

    Coda does not knead. She came from a good breeder, well raised, definitely not separated too early. Her some-degree-of-aunt, Tenuto, from said same breeder a few years earlier and identical raising...

    Client on an aide shift today: "How many cats extra now?"

    Me: "There are seven of Cat Lady's cats left outside on my farm, and then there's the one who ran inside several weeks ago."

    Client:...

    By the way, the park bench has arrived and is awaiting assembly. Hopefully this weekend. I put polyurethane protectant on all the wood pieces yesterday, which I figured would be safer before...

    Water has thawed. :)

    The cats thought my self-rescue was even more interesting than my going in there in the first place. They were very helpful in swiping at my finger as I tried to wedge it...

    New experience - being shut in the well house by the cats.

    No water this morning. I have been turning on heat lamp below a level overnight forecast, but last night got down to 20, lower than...

    I have a friend who had a cat who liked guacamole. She posted a picture of the cat happily scarfing it down straight out of the container as proof.

    Not as weird, but I have one aide client whose...

    RIP, Arch. I saw him in 2010 at Claiborne. He was gorgeous.

    Freeze-Proof Hydrant Dripping

    My freeze proof hydrant has suddenly sprung a leak the last day. Fairly constant splatter, much more than a drip, drip. It has been quite cold and also has iced the last few days, worst stretch of...

    Podhajsky's My Horses, My Teachers.

    And Black Beauty. Even though it is fiction, one line in it had a very profound effect on me as a child, made me really think about that in relation to...

    Beryl has finally made it into the cat tree. That's 5/5 indoor cats who have used it. :)

    Rascal tonight in the front yard tree watching me work.

    http://i276.photobucket.com/albums/kk8/dressagetraks/Rascal%20011816_zps5bwr4cou.jpg

    She is at home here now. No more questions.

    I'm really getting to enjoy Rascal more the more I see of her.

    She's opinionated, but she's not a bully. She thinks about things; you can see her do it. Nothing on impulse. She considers...
