Jackson on Smith Street

Months ago, I spied this wee baby peeking at me as I strolled by.

In time, his people introduced me to Jackson, who was found in a parking lot, taken to the vet, and adopted.

They are beyond in love with their housepanther, and as I walk by daily, I wave and yell, "Hello, Jackson!"

This kind couple have had other cats in their lives, but Jackson has been so friendly, adorable, and his addition to their family seemed almost pre-destined.

I am thankful to have been granted friendship to this remarkable family, and to their Jackson.

Once again, my neighborhood is so feline-friendly, and there I am...a bonafide cat the middle of such bounty.

Jigsaw Puzzle!

Playing with my earbuds...

Sweetie's behavior has changed since the temperatures went up, and the windows are open.

She meows, and goes from window to window.

All.  Night.  Long.

She jumps on the bed, and walks across my body, especially when I'm asleep.

I presume that she was happily settled down inside, until the open windows reminded her of life on her own terms, observing her own territory.

One step at a time; we'll figure it out.

You can see by the two videos that she is comfortable with me, and that's like bricks of gold bullion in the bank to me!

Enjoy today's jigsaw puzzle!

Catch Up

Our Monday O'Malley and Two-zday posts have run together!

The PO'M had a visitor yesterday:

Cheryl was delighted to have Paddy's love!
The PO'M is a bit of a tart...
but he knows a cat lover when he meets one!

A jigsaw puzzle of his belly fur...
It's not easy!
Da Boyz are enjoying Bird TV!

Yes, I know it's Manny!
Manny, chillin' like a villain
Yes, I know for sure that it's CB!
Chili is always on guard
And a jigsaw puzzle of Da Boyz in another cuddlefest!
This one is much easier than The PO'M's belly fur one above...

As we plant more native Michigan/Midwest flowers, bushes, and milkweed, we are experiencing an increase in pollinators!

We have a long way to go yet, as I'd like to replace every inch of lawn.

Here are a few images of what's coming up:

Raindrops on clover


Wild Ginger bloom
They flower right at the base of the plant, on the ground!
