This is a special guest post by our cat Goldilocks. We call Goldy our resident ornithologist. She spends most of her days at our windows, watching outside to see the birds there. When she was younger, a call of “bird bird bird!” from anywhere in the house would bring her running. Now she is training […]
For years, Squirt has liked his pink mice best of all his toys. Rich reminds him that little boys are not supposed to like pink, but Squirt didn’t care. Now Whiskey’s toys are the springy-thingees, and Whiskey also prefers the pink ones. But a funny thing has been happening. Every time we get out a […]
Whiskey decided that we should celebrate my birthday by giving him toys. He’s been having a blast with these little springy toys that Rich found on Amazon. He chases them all over the house for hours on end. He’s particularly adorable when he carries them around in his mouth. Whiskey is starting to take an […]
Squirt was dismayed when I took his potted catnip plant outside a few weeks ago. But after a few good rains, the plant has quadrupled in size. Now Squirt gets to teach Whiskey the joys of playing with catnip… Now this is cool…this post was brought to you via my iPhone. I took the picture […]
The rain and heat have been keeping Rich and me from taking our afternoon walks. Indoors, my best photographic subjects tend to be our cats. We’ve had Whiskey for three weeks now, and he’s grown so much!! Check out the highlights from playtime below…
So some proud photographer parents pose their two or three year olds with super-telephoto lenses, showing how the lens is taller than the kid. I thought it’d be fun to pose our new kitten in the Beast’s lens hood. I figured he’d be so cute sitting inside it, and I’d look back in a few […]
I’ll digress from my usual nature photography posts to show you some pictures of the newest member of our family. We adopted a little kitten today. Meet Whiskey Lou, which we will likely shorten to just “Whiskey”. Goldilocks and Squirt are adapting surprisingly well to the new little intruder. It’s fun to have a kitten […]
Squirt thinks it unfair that feline study-buddies are not allowed to attend graduations. He spent long hours helping Aaron with calculus! He worked so hard that he put himself to sleep. Look at that big yawn! So Squirt wants to join in and congratulate Aaron on his accomplishments…
Goldilocks had a great time watching a little frog that hopped onto her window. Then she got bored and gave a big yawn. Sometimes the camera doesn’t always catch her most dignified moments!! :)
Rich gave me the most awesome lens ever for Christmas! The weather has been gross (cold front = cold + wind) and so I haven’t been out to Circle B with the lens yet. But here are a few pictures from around the house… Every time I get a new lens or piece of camera […]
Missy let me take a picture of her this weekend. She didn’t even hiss!
It’s hard to do much photography at night when it’s already dark when you get home…so Rich and I resort to making up holiday parodies of songs. This one is in honor of our cats Goldilocks and Squirt, intended to be sung to the tune of “Santa got Lost in Texas” (with our apologies to […]
We put up our Christmas decorations today. Squirt helped!
…a fresh pansy for a twerpy cat! (A pansy a day keeps the doctor away!)
It’s the most wonderful day of the year! Squirt has been dreaming of this day for the past six months, ever since he took his last bite of pansy back in the early spring. He’s been getting pretty desperate, too. I found this note in my car after work this afternoon: So we stopped at […]
We had “Squirt’s Delight” (a.k.a. ham) for dinner. Squirt was ecstatic. Then he had to take a very long bath!
Rich made Goldy and Squirt a cat house out of a big box. Goldy approves!
We have a little tradition at our house that the first picture taken with any new piece of camera equipment must be a picture of Miss Clock. So we followed tradition today when Rich broke down and gave me my Canon 7D one day early. Squirt didn’t want to be left out, so he posed […]
We promised to look after Pickles this weekend. Squirt took us very literally and kept a very close eye on him! I had a lot of fun with Photoshop, and Rich and Mum-mum had fun egging me on. First we added Zach and Cody to the party, then Goldilocks (asleep, like usual!), then Beaky, then […]
It’s time for our favorite window-cat birdwatchers to wake up and start thinking about birds again! This morning a cardinal father and baby spent the whole morning chasing each other around the yard (including several stops on the porch roof, where they made lots of noise that intrigued the gatitos!) Mum-mum reported hearing a Blue-Gray […]
