Socks was not impressed with my photographic ambitions last week.  She wanted me to ignore the flowers in the ditch and pay attention to her, darn it.

Don’t believe me?

Put down the camera and pet me dammit!

Serious Socks is serious (and much more social than before we left on vacation).  That look means business, yo.

Behold, the Shadow Cat:

I had been trying to take some macro shots of the flowers on this side of our house when all of a sudden I heard a threatening growl from near my feet.  I looked down and Buddy was sniffing at Shadow, who evidently wasn’t feeling overly friendly at that particular moment.

At least not to Buddy – when I bent down to pet him, he started purring.

Cats are weird, yo. 😀

Cricket sat down to keep Buddy company this morning on our way to the car. I tried to snap a picture quick, but he got up and moved before I could get my phone out of my purse.


Luckily, Buddy wouldn’t leave him alone, so he sat back down and I was able to capture this shot. I’m not sure which I love more, the look on Buddy’s face or Thumper sticking up between the two. (Thumper goes everywhere with us lately.)

Happy Friday, everybody! 🙂

White coral bells, upon a slender stalk...

White coral bells, upon a slender stalk…

Despite the forecast, it’s a lovely day outside.  After running some errands this noon, the boys and I came back home and spent some time in the yard playing.  They played with each other, and I played with my camera. 🙂

We’ve got some beautiful lily of the valley coming up along the north side of our house and as I stretched out in the grass to capture it, Shadow and Opal stopped by to keep me company.  Turns out Shadow just wanted to laze about on my lap in the sun.  If I hadn’t had other things to do (and others to keep track of), that would have been a lovely way to spend the afternoon.

Cricket finally tired of the wind and decided he was ready to go back inside.  “Do you have just one more picture to take, Mom?” he asked me.  I assured him that I only had just one more, but after about ten just-one-mores, there was no more putting off the inevitable and we all headed inside.


Except Buddy.  Despite the puppy-dog eyes, he stayed parked outside in the shade. 😉

Do your cats demand your attention while you’re trying to work?  How do you handle it?

It was an exhausting (but fun) weekend, so this is me today:


Also, this:


Hopefully tomorrow I’ll be more rested and can tell you all about the weekend (with pictures!).  Till then, have a great one, and may the fourth be with you. 😀

My cats like to swarm when we leave the house.  I think they’re laboring under the impression that if they swarm us enough times, we’ll give in to their demands to be let inside permanently, and if Seymour weren’t so horribly allergic, maybe we would.

They don’t play fair – there’s nothing more tempting than an adorable kitty cat.  But I stayed strong in the face of such manipulation.  They won’t stay mad at me for long, right? 😀

Bonus picture!

Because apparently yesterday’s banana shot went up a month ago, have a bonus picture of some kitties:


My memory kinda sucks.  Apologies.  On the bright side, you get an pretty awesome cat picture, and who doesn’t love cat pictures?  No one, that’s who.  Everyone loves cats.

Everyone. 🙂
