Our Cats

We had lots of Cats. Originally four, but sadly, as of October 2020, we are catless. You’ll find all of them here though.

Blue Kitty on my desk (again) – Hopefully I don’t need to write any notes this morning.

Watching my work companion I’m thinking it might be worth my while switching allegiances to Buddhism. After all, from what I’ve seen, the possibility of being reincarnated as an in-door domestic cat seems to be a pretty good option.

Ever since Tubby was introduced to cat videos on YouTube he has become obsessed with screens and anything vaguely screen shaped. This is not always conducive to my work. He sits on my desk for ages staring at the screen following the mouse pointer.

Cats Watching TV – We’ve created a monster. Tubby now thinks any rectangular object is fair game to stare at. Picture frames for example. He also sits next to our monitors waiting for something to move. Worse he sits right in the middle of the screen while we are watching movies and shows on Netflix.

It’s hard work, but someone has to do it

There is a cat in a Santa suit sitting on my desk…Which explains why Ginger and Lanie took so long on the school run this afternoon.

Lanie and Getzger asleep on our bed.

Lanie fell asleep on our bed while cuddling Tubby – It seems a certain young lady is rather tired.

Blue Kitty – Filed – Blue Kitty was just reminding me I can’t leave any cupboard, or the filing cabinet open nor any bag or container out.

Mr. Getzger Cat does it again – I’m not sure if it looks like Getzger is a contortionist or if it looks like he’s in the act of smothering another cat…

Tubby finds a use for Getzger’s ‘Udder’ – I’ve said it before. The cats are an endless source of amusement.

Pre-shoot equipment test, and I asked Ginger to be my stand-in model… 5 pictures

Part 2 in which Getzger is Blessed, has a falling out with his friend Fara, and meets a bunny.

Part 1 – my favorite pictures from this afternoon’s Blessing of the Animals.

Gary and Tubby (365:363) – I was taking some family portraits and I forgot to include myself, so here I am with Tubby. One-minute read, 5 pictures

Cat and mouse (365:353) – Sprinky decided to fall asleep on my EfM lesson notes.

Gary, Tubby and Sprinky (365:344) – Half past eleven and I’m still at my desk.

Gary and Ginger indulge in the ancient art of kitty aggravating (365:318) – it’s a popular pastime around here.

Tomorrow at 7.30 am I leave for Chicago for the week
