SoCS: If He Could Talk

“Oh boy…” “What is it Gibbs?” “Why don’t you ever stay home?” “I am home, sitting here in my pajamas.” “I mean all day.” “Oh…” “It’s one of those two days when you don’t have to earn money for kibble.” “Yes it is.” “Then why don’t you stay home?” “Because I have other things to do.” “Like what?” “Like shopping for food, my own kibble if you will.

Lately, Today

Not sure what to say today Lately, it’s like this most often rainy, dreary, no sun blah missing Vitamin D One day last week it appeared blue sky crispy crunchy air fading greens, bright yellows I walked the autumn path The morning sky soulful breathtaking at peace when there is sun The morning rain dark and inky gloomy moisturizing mottling traffic lights On a bright day the sandhills visit trumpet their song of migration then fly away She barely escapedRead more

My resolution is true. Just want to be a stay-at-home cat mom. Bang on the food dish all day, nap with my head upside down and feet in the air. A stay-at-home cat mom.

What’s a Girl to Do?

It’s been a cold, gray and rainy Sunday. Temps are hovering at 34 F with a sturdy 20 mph SSW wind. So, what’s a girl to do with a dreary, lazy, no-reason-to-play day? The answer is clear. Snuggle under the covers and take a long nap. After the human stops taking photos, of course. And after the girl takes a whiff of the boy and urges him to leave her alone. Any other questions?Read more

Too Many?

Q: Can one human ever take too many photos of the “kids,” the furry beasts? Gibbs answers with, “What? Of course not! I AM Mr. Photogenic…take as many as your rectangular box will hold. Ziva responds with, “What? Again? Go away, I’m trying to nap! One more photo, human, and I’ll extend my claws. A:  Yes, but proceed with caution.Read more

Textural Shades of Gray

One can find texture in many places. While contemplating a nap before dinner with family, I found it in a sleeping cat’s belly. Soft, silky, furry, going-every-which-way textural shades of gray. Move over, Ziva darling, I want to nap too. ZZzzzzzzz…Read more
