Sunny Snowy Spring

It is a spring day in Calgary – which means the sun is shining… but only a little while ago the snow was pouring down outside (which explains why spring cleaning hasn’t made it to that window yet!)

Princess has snagged THE best perch.  The window sill in the office on the sunny side of the house.

However… someone else has awoken to discover he is no longer in a warm spot and he has come hunting.

He is talking to her right now.  He’d like to get up on that window sill.  He thinks she should move.  I don’t think she believes that is something she will do.  What do you think – will she move, or stay?


The demands of the other’s in the house can be SO tiring…

Just as a point – the BEST perch in the house is on the balcony… but this is the picture of it about an hour earlier


(They didn’t want to go out on the balcony – I have NO IDEA why not 😉 )


I’ve been HAD!

Today I realized that my “Sweet Rusty” does to me what I have seen him do to Princess.

He cuddled me out of my office chair!

So don’t think he’s as innocent as he appears in this photo:


I was sitting on THIS chair a few minutes ago working on the computer.  Rusty jumped up behind me and leaned against me purring.

A few minutes later he sat down, taking up a bit more space and moving me towards the front of the chair.

Then a few minutes more and he “got bigger”.  I got up, moved this chair to the side and got another office chair.

When I did that he looked at me like “you are going?” big halo around his saintly head.

Moments after that he snuggled comfortably and without guilt on HIS chair.

(but I am not a slave to my cats)

Technology Upgrade Benefit

Rusty is happy to gaze at me, not the camera, and purr and chirp asking to be petted.

I recently upgraded my iPhone and the new case is silver – I’ve noted the kitties do not HATE this phone as much as the black one or the big black camera.  So there are good things that come with the “joys” of upgrades.

I will try to focus on those good things rather than the amount of time it took me to get the photos to upload onto the computer so I could get access… grrrr


Yes, the kitties basically ignoring this phone is a GOOD thing.  As is the warm spring sunbeam that Rusty is enjoying from his perch near the ceiling.  The perch that gives him full surveillance of the back yard.  Life is good.

Spring Sunshine

The spring sunshine pours in through the bedroom window in the early afternoon predictably bringing the kitties (who know to the second where it beams in) to worship the heat. 

Princess is looking as regal as her name suggests, the backlighting enhancing every whisker making them glow like molten silver. 

Her eyes, as always, fascinate me with their various hues and their changeability depending upon the light.


She is so happy in the sunshine that she isn’t even “ticked” with me for taking this photo.  Of course it could be because she looks so beautiful and she KNOWS it.

 In case you can not tell…she IS purring.

Asleep at the Keyboard?

It appears as if I have been as relaxed as my kitties. Here we see Rusty and Princess relaxed on the heating pad near the office.


They, like me, appear to be as unaware of the calendar, the clock, basically of the passage of time.

And so the week whisks by…

And nine days later I am posting this photo of them.  We are, obviously, all good 🙂  Hope everyone here is too.
