Greetings 2018

It’s officially the first day of 2018. Happy New Year everyone!

So, the past week hasn’t been very kind in terms of weather in my little corner of Maine. For a few days around Christmas it snowed, and when it stopped snowing, it was so cold it was pretty much impossible to enjoy the outdoors without being bundled up in so many layers you couldn‘t even move. So, I’ve basically been stuck inside.

For that reason, I have no pretty nature photos to share with you folks on this first day of the new year. Instead, I’ll share a shot I took a while ago of one of my cats being cute. Her cuteness is nothing new around here. In this shot, she was investigating an open bin that was left in the living room. As everyone with cats knows, whenever you move something or bring something new into the house, the cat(s) must investigate.

 

 

Here’s to hoping I can get back outside soon. Maybe I’ll actually be able to utilize my snowshoes this winter, unlike last winter…and the winter before that…and the winter before that…

 

 

Until next time…

My Domo! MINE!

 

 

Not only is my youngest cat spoiled rotten (she even has me trained now that when she’s ready to take a nap, she wants me to follow her and tuck her in like a child [^_^]), but she’s a bit of a thief…

 

She’s:
* A spot thief (which I established before, both my cats steal my seat whenever I get up).
* A food thief (if I let her, or don’t catch her in time, she’ll eat the canned cat food my older cat doesn’t finish).
* A blanket hog (self explanatory).
* And she even steals stuffed animals to cuddle…

 

 

Why do I let her get away with all of it?  Well, she’s just way too cute!

 

 

Proof…

 

My Domo! MINE!

Apparently that’s no longer my Domo doll…

 

 

 

 

Until next time…

Spoiled Kitties

 

 

I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this before, but my cats are incredibly spoiled.  Those of you who love cats probably know exactly what I’m talking about.

 

 

Anyway, my cats are so spoiled, they have numerous beds of their own to choose from yet they always seem to end up in a chair or on the couch where my seat was vacated for less than a minute.  They always give me the same look when I come back to my seat too…  “What?  You got up.  Your loss.”  And to show how spoiled they are, I don’t even bother moving them from my seat, I simply find another place to sit.  Sad?  Maybe.  I prefer to say it’s out of love, not that they own the place and simply allow me to live here to feed them and clean their litter box.  [-_^]  I heard a saying once that’s spot on, “Dogs have owners, Cats have staff.”

 

 

But, here’s proof…

 

 

Lazy Spoiled Kitties

 

I was ejected from not one, but two seats by both cats.  And what did I do when I returned to said seats to find they‘d been shanghaied?  I tucked in the napping fur babies and found another place to sit.

 

 

I’m weak, I know.

 

 

 

 

Until next time…

Too Cute

 

 

Hello again folks!  Now, seeing as this is technically a photography blog and seeing as I failed to post a photo last time, I figured I’d share a cute little snapshot of my youngest cat, Kenzi.

 

 

This was among the first shots I took this year of my cats.

 

 

Kenzi Lounging

 

Both of my cats are super photogenic, unlike me.  [-_^]  But Kenzi’s always doing cute poses, usually when my camera isn’t in reach so I’m always happy when I can catch a good image.

 

 

Cat lovers, hug your feline friends (or feline friends of your friends if you don’t have any fur babies yourself)!

 

 

 

Until next time…

Silly Cat!

 

My cats are a constant source of entertainment, yet ninety percent of the time they’re not trying and are just doing what cats do.  Be it running aimlessly through the house like they’re chasing something (or being chased), playing with a paper ball instead of the numerous toys that have been bought for them, just rolling around on the floor lookin’ all cute, or whatever the case may be.

 

For example, my cat Abby in addicted to treats.  I joke that she needs rehab as she tries to scam a treat from everyone and every room in the house.  But she goes a step further where her dry cat food is involved.  She greatly enjoys the “tender middle” type cat food and has a strict “No Kernel Left Behind” policy.

 

 

No Kernel Left Behind

 

You go get ‘em, Abby!

 

 

 

Until next time…
