Dreams of Cats

Er.. Cats on Wednesday? Sorry, been quite busy!

While the two old cats, Molly and Tas, slumber in my art nook...

Tinkerbelle climbs a tree, and balances on the little twigs.

She walks along walls with shadows of tree branches.

Tinkerbelle and Smudge play in the garden.

Pippin guards the tulips and daffodils.

Tinkerbelle poses in front of a stained glass lion.

And Molly and Tas are still sleeping and dreaming...

Killer Tinkerbelle

Tinkerbelle, a sweet cute adorable little pixie-cat, yes?
But also a killer! She's even got herself a little salad to go with the meat.
I remember though, the faerie-tale Tinkerbelle wasn't all sweetness either, was she?

The meeting of cats

Meow all!

One fine sunny day, Molly was asleep just inside our back door.

A few minutes later, as all cats can do, she had teleported to outside the back door.

Soon, along came a curious Smudge, the cat next door. I don't think she had met my cats yet.

Smudge comes in for a closer look.

Molly wakes up.. she can't see, being blind, but somehow knows there is a visitor nearby.

Tas notices a new cat in the garden, and comes outside for a better look. Molly feels Tas nearby and gives him a quick wash.

Tas pretends to ignore the visiting Smudge.

But curiosity gets the better of him, and he begins to approach Smudge.
Smudge is terrified and quickly rushes to hide behind my lavender.

Pippin sees for miles

"Look how tall I am! Me bigger than you, human! Me can see for miles all around me."
"Read about others like me, us smarter, taller and stronger than all you humans! Meow!"
