I am drawn to colorful things.

Multi-colored, swirls of color, rainbows of color!

Lucky for me, my Prisma phone app never lets me down.

Today, I offer two images: the first, of Paddy O'Malley in glorious color.

 A dear friend, however, has mentioned that she prefers artified nature scenes.

Therefore, I also offer this fern image, taken when on a native-to-Michigan fern walk at Tenhave Woods, in Royal Oak, Michigan last week.  

Honestly, I only stayed for about half of the instructional walk, because the mosquitoes were too much for me.

And More 'Hood Cats!

Folks, I cannot make this stuff up!

I find new cats in my neighborhood often.

Getting to know their names is a challenge, but I'm crazy enough to walk up to folks, introduce myself, then ask for the name of their cat.
Jackson is the black cat, and I've posted about him before.
His new sisfur is Sweet Pea, and she's just learning the "watching out the window" ropes.
This is Miss Annie, and while I've met her before, I hadn't posted about her.
Sightings of her a few and far between, and she's very friendly!
This fraidy cat sat watching Miss Annie and me, but wouldn't come any closer.
I'll have to put on my detective hat and find out more about him.
Spied this kitty enjoying someone's vegetable garden.

 Many of you know that community cats go unseen by the general public.

But we feline aficionados have 'cat radar' and see cats everywhere!

A Rare Sneakers Sighting

I see Sly often on my 'hood walks, yet his brofur Sneakers is elusive.

Imagine how happy I was to get this greeting the other day!
Sly, however, is always ready to show off his handsomeness...enjoy!

So very thankful to have these floofies as my neighborhood cat friends.

Too Fine!

Image grabbed from the interwebs.

Today is the anniversary of the first Lunar Landing: July 20, 1969.

I remember watching the TV, seeing the grainy black and grey images.

Humankind can be so amazingly smart, and so stupid.

Hoping that the human race can make amends for the disasters that they've caused to Mother Earth and her children.

Going to the Moon shouldn't be about looking for the next place to build houses for humans, but about learning that our planet is the best one we'll ever have, and that we need to take care of it.

I lubs himb!

 Paddy O'Malley doesn't expend ANY extra energy, when he's got my lap as his throne.

I love him so!

Today, I played with an image of Sweetie, with her head tucked under but all of her paws and tailio out!

Created with Prisma, I like the rainbow of colors.

No pounding, no saws buzzing, no men walking past the windows.

Below is an image of what our new roof looks like; I think it's pretty nifty!

Almost like the Canadian flag, no?

Too bad the don't make cat-head shingles.

Needless to say, we are all thankful for being able to hear ourselves think again!

Da Boyz, being adorable and snoozing together, without roofing noise.

Sweetie and I Endure the Roofers

Seriously, those guys are making a ton of noise!
Sweetie naps
Sweetie ALWAYS takes my spot when I get out of bed!

Mellow Fellows

Da Boyz don't care a fig if the roofing crew is making a racket, while throwing stuff around and clanging ladders.

As long as they have each other, life is grand!

Don't bother me, I'm trying to sleep!


Paddy O'Malley isn't amused by the roofers, who've scattered tools and electric wires all over his deck!

We snuggle together in solace, since while I'm working inside, the banging, pounding, and yelling are right over my head.

National Kitten Day

Eastside Cats has been blessed with two kittens: Angel and Chuck.

When we adopted them in 2004, I didn't have a camera, so I borrowed the rickety one from my office.

Still managed a few cute shots...

Hard to believe that Celestial Chuck was ever this small!
A blurry pic of Angel that I've always loved; I ran it through Lunapic using the Rembrandt filter.

Jury Duty

 I report for jury duty selection this afternoon!

To look professional, I will not wear one of my new cat t-shirts, but will wear some tasteful cat items:

My favorite earrings!
The white scarf in the middle.
This haul was what I brought back from my trip to England a few years ago.

Cats Books Tea


Don't tell The Hubby, but I've found some terrific shirts online recently!

Am thankful to be able to reflect my passions: cats, books, and tea.

We'll discuss inflatable T-Rex costumes some other time.😹
Disclaimer: I purchased the items featured today for my own use and amusement, and will forward the ordering information as a courtesy to anyone who asks for it.  I only post about items that I think you all may enjoy, and receive no financial gain for myself.

I want to be a cat!


While I work over a hot keyboard, Sweetie naps.

Oops, I woke her up!
Now, she's purring and kneading.
This is the view from my desk; Sweetie has it made in the shade!

 On Monday, since it was a day off from work, I pretended to be a cat, and napped in the late morning, then again in the afternoon.

It was hot outside, and muggy, so other than avoiding chores, why not be a cat for a day?

Two Peas... a pod!

Waiting to be allowed into the kitchen, to create havoc!
Note the innocent faces.
Manny is sprawled every which way (showing off his underwear), while Chili Bruce is more circumspect.
Now Manny has curled up!
