The cat's comfy couch
The sitting room couch, and all the comfy blankets, really belong to the three cats. Molly (on the right) goes so far as to give us a swat if we try to sit there. So we have to sit on the rickety chair!

Tinkerbelle steals my chair
Tinkerbelle, the neighbor's cat has taken over my studio chair. When I need to sit there to do some work, she gets all upset, and looks at me with big sad eyes.
Cats in the sunshine
Looks like Molly has found the only sunny spot by the back door. Doesn't Pippin look slightly annoyed? He leaves her be, she loves the warmth.
Beware of the Cat!
One of Pippin's favorite sleeping spots is inside my desk.
Glowing eyes and unseeing eyes.
Tas with his glowing eyes, spots Molly walking by. Molly sees nothing, she has gone completely blind, we think. Her whiskers have grown so they point forward, and she gets around fairly well.
Shed in heaven
I found out on Halloween night, that Shed passed away several days ago. She was the neighbor's cat, and a real sweetie. I was missing her visits, she would come say hello when I was outside gardening, and sometimes even come inside through the cat door to greet me. Poor little darling, she got sick, and just got worse.
I'm still missing her.., her lovely little purr.., the way she would want you to pet her belly, but she would roll around just out of reach..., and the way she came trotting up to greet you, miowing the whole way.
