Whiskey and Squirt meow for first-of-fall pansies!
From our family to yours…Merry Christmas!!
It was the most wonderful day of the year! Our cats got their first taste of pansies this fall…
I didn’t really intend to feed the squirrels at my bird feeders…at least my cats are enjoying their new playmates at the window!
While stuck inside over Thanksgiving break during that annoying series of cold fronts, Whiskey and I played with my flashes. We set up my softbox and reflector and experimented with key lights and fill lights. We tried manual mode and ETTL mode. The hardest part was getting Whiskey to sit still! I had to break […]
Whiskey says that we’re overdue for a post about cats – after all, this blog was inspired by cats and turtles! He asked me to share some pictures that we took this afternoon. Rich and I joke that Whiskey is black and white and pink all over because his skin is pink underneath his fur. […]
It’s the most wonderful day in Squirt’s year! Pansies-R-Us (a.k.a. Lowe’s) has fresh six-packs of pansies. Squirt has waited six months to devour his favorite flower! Squirt loves his six-packs. As soon as we walk out onto the porch carrying one, Squirt comes running up to his, meowing his head off. Then the leg-rubs and […]
Happy Birthday to one of my favorite people in the world! Our cats wanted to share their birthday wishes and advice… Don’t wear your cat grass or your birthday cake on your chin. Look for something unexpected, whether it be a lizard, hummingbird, or Mr. Warbles! Good things come to those who are patient. Note: […]
Move over, Filter Boy – I have a new camera assistant! He’s black and white and pink all over. I think he’s the most adorable little boy in the whole world. :) Regular readers of my blog may remember when Whiskey fit into my Beast’s lens hood. Whiskey is two years old now, and he’s […]
It’s hard to believe, but our “kitten” Whiskey turned two today! Happy birthday, Whiskey Loopy! You’ve come a long way since we first adopted you… This is a recent snapshot of the birthday cat in one of his favorite poses – sitting at the window! Our neighbors remark that they always look for the cats […]
I took soooo many pictures this weekend! I filled my cards with the Sandhill Cranes at Circle B, then again with the Ospreys at Blue Cypress Lake. It was awesome! It feels so good to get back out with my camera. Just in time for my favorite time of the year, bird nesting season! I […]
Squirt is hereby charged with aiding and abetting a hoodlum! On Monday morning at 6 a.m. the hoodlum, one Whiskey Loopy, was apprehended in the hallway without his bell collar. Kittens in “stealth mode” are prohibited from wandering the house, by order of Goldilocks. Goldy hereby accuses Squirt of romping with his brother and releasing […]
Whiskey Loopy is proud to announce that his kitten story is now available along with Goldy’s and Squirt’s! If you haven’t noticed these links on my site before, let me give you a little bit of background information. When I was a little girl, my parents used to read to me the story I am […]
Whiskey Loopy wants to wish everyone a happy Valentine’s Day! The picture below is Loopy’s favorite new hangout – the back of the couch. It’s right next to where we keep the cat treats. Whiskey jumps up and looks cute every time he wants a treat…many, many times a day!
I was able to catch Whiskey Loopy in action yesterday. He likes to chase his “loopies” (his little spring toys) around the house, but he buries them under furniture and then can’t play anymore. Usually he waits for Mom to come and fish them out, but sometimes bored cats sometimes have to take matters into […]
All throughout this Christmas season we’ve had ornaments mysteriously coming off the Christmas tree. We’ll walk in and find them scattered on the floor in the general vicinity of the tree. The cats, of course, deny all knowledge. But today I think I might have found one of the culprits red-pawed… Of course Whiskey can’t […]
Merry Christmas! This year Rich has been having fun with his Santa iPhone apps. One of them is a naughty or nice scanner. You take someone’s picture, and it analyzes the person and determines whether he is on the naughty list. We tried it out on the cats and it was pretty accurate. ¡Feliz […]
‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house not a creature was stirring except for Whiskey Loopy! The stockings were hung on the staircase with care in hopes that St. Nicolas soon would be there and Goldy in her cat-bed and Squirt in his box had settled down to dream of birdie flocks […]
If you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, you also can’t keep a young cat from discovering some! Whiskey’s latest trick is to turn lights on and off. We started to be suspicious when random lights started coming on around the house. Then we started to notice him jumping up to paw at the […]
I needed something to cheer me up today. What could be better than our loopy kitten? This one was taken as he peered through the banisters at me. You know how it is with kittens, they go from tearing around the house in one second to falling asleep in the next… This video was taken […]
