Window Work

It's Twozday!

Windows are where we can alway find Da Boyz.

Sometimes they watch Critter TV, but more often, they laze around like living statues.

Not a great video, but I marvel at how the groundhog disappears into the plants.
We pull down the window shade; the sunshine can be brutal.
Or, Da Boyz bask in the heat, and no human can resist petting a sun-warmed black cat!

A Cling-on

It's PO'Monday!
Celestial Paddy liked to be my body kitty:
On my lap
On my stomach

But, sometimes...he allowed lovin' from someone else!
Yep, that's The Hubby giving PO'M some pats!
Notice how Paddy's paws are pressed against The Hubby's body.

Today is Memorial Day in America.
We are conscious of the ultimate sacrifice others have made for our freedoms.
Let peace be our way forward.

It's Caturday!

I ran a recent photo of Sly, the neighbor's cat, through my Prisma app, and used the Seahorse filter.

Doesn't he appear to have a wicked smile and maybe a gleam in his eye?

Cat Art History: Alexander Calder

Alexander Calder, July 22, 1898 - November 11, 1976, was an Modern, Abstract, and Surrealist artist, innovating with his three-dimensional kinetic sculptures powered by motors or air currents, and his monumental public sculptures.

The artist undoubtedly studied cats, sculpting them as whimsical and playful.

125 Years Ago

On May 26, 1897, Bram Stoker's book, "Dracula" was published.

I've watched many Dracula and vampire movies, but the book is better!

Here are some cat vampire memes for your viewing pleasure, all scrounged from the interwebs.

It's Sweetnesday!

That Sweetie; such a snoozer!
She takes over the warm spot when a human gets up.
She sleeps in the window, curled up like a shrimp.
She can give an evil look if you interrupt her nap!

It's Twozday!

Da Boyz enjoy the increased critter activity outside.
Backdoor viewing.
Synchronized ear front window viewing.
Once the sunshine heats up their fur, they change location to a shadier spot.
Note the wooly sock; a leftover from Celestial Chuck.

❤️ Cat

It's PO'Monday!

Celestial Paddy O'Malley was my πŸ’– cat.

These images were taken in May, 2019, and we just couldn't get enough of each other.
Being cute.
Not on the level.
Happy Victoria Day, Canada!

World Bee Day

 May 20 is World Bee Day!

The observance of World Bee Day worldwide aims to: 

  • Draw the attention of the world’s public and political decision-makers to the importance of protecting bees.
  • Remind us that we depend on bees and other pollinators.
  • Protect bees and other pollinators, which would significantly contribute to solving problems related to the global food supply and eliminate hunger in developing countries. 
  • Halt the further loss of biodiversity and degradation of ecosystems, and thereby contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.

Our native bee house is busy.
Bats are also great pollinators; look at those wings.

There are more than 450 kinds of bees in Michigan, 3,600 types of bees in the USA, and 20,000 bee species around the world.

Be nice to bees, birds, butterflies, and bats.

He'll be up for adoption once he's lost some weight.
Gus is popular on Tiktok.

What a delightful hour spent with wonderful kitties!

Am beyond thankful that we have such a terrific resource in my town!

Small and Spicy

It's Sweetnesday!

A usual day in Sweetie's Apartment, while I continue to work remotely:

Napping in her Sweetie Spa.
Enjoying the Spring sunshine from the front window.
Voicing her displeasure at...well, am not sure what she was displeased about!

Maybe my Zoom meeting?
Sweetie is about 1/2 the size of either of Da Boyz, and she doesn't like being picked up.

She gets very spicy whenever I try, and those murder mitts snick out.

Yet, she bears no grudges; once she's been released...and my clothes are full of holes from her nails...she purrs and pretends like her catness was never grabbed.

I mean, she's so wee and cute...and feisty.

It's Twozday!

Manny and Chili Bruce do manage to go off on solo adventures...
In the front window
Up on the overhead catwalk
Curled in a beddy
...just don't ask me which one is which.

And then, they do this:

The Hubby and I are very happy to have Da Boyz in our home.

Non-springy PO'M

It's PO'Monday!

As diligent as Celestial Paddy was at monitoring activities in the yard, he was always ready to be a sloth.

With Spring in full swing, birdies cheeping, and bees a'buzzing...
...The PO'M was chill.

Photos taken on May 22, 2016.
