Inside Sun .




Leo , " I've been out on the cat balcony all morning long. It's small but I have quite a few tasty smells and sights that I can experience out there . Not to mention my strong need to keep a watchful eye out for those intruders I told you about ! I've discovered  that one intruder is Grey Cat-you met her last summer. And the other intruder is a tough looking orange tabby who has seen better days. Don't worry ,  he has a collar so he has somewhere to go after he thieves my catnip ! "








Leo , "I'll have to set a trap for them sometime ,  somehow , somewhere. I was thinking of coming in for now though. "








Leo, " It's a tough decision outside or in. Three quarters of me is out right now but my head and arms are in."







Leo , " Alright  then , I'll get up and start moving in ."









Leo ,  " I'm ALL in now ."









Leo , " It's sunny inside too . Just perfect for a sun puddle nap ."









Have a Marvelous Monday!
See you soon.

Thursday in the Garden with Leo and Tulip.





Tulip, " Hi ! It's me . Tulip Bunny Blossom Sweet Heart .  Here I am on the throne in the garden . You may remember that last year LP had some really pretty ,  plush ,  pink cushions on the garden throne . She still has the cushions but doesn't want to put them out yet since we will be getting many more rainy days before the sun is here full time. She said for this Thursday ,  a blanket will do."








Tulip ,  " I don't mean to alarm you but as soon as I stepped into the garden I smelled something fishy ! "






Leo , " I smelled it too ! "







Leo , " All around the catnip barrel ! "







Tulip , " That fishy smell was also lingering around the old garden bench . "







Tulip and Leo ,  " We smell intruders !! "















Leo , " And they have been thieving from the catnip barrel ! "






Tulip and Leo , " But they haven't touched these pretty flowers ."






Tulip and Leo , " Or the rhododendron which has begun to bloom ."






Leo , " I need to go under cover now in order to catch those catnip seeking intruders. Join us next week when we will give you another tour of our lovely garden . "






 Tulip , " I'll be on my throne listening to birdsong , waiting for you :) "








Have a great day!
See you soon.

Savant Syndrome .




Mitalee , " Whoopsies! You caught me stretching in between sorting through my books. Yup. That's right. That's my library above me. I've been learning quite a bit lately."







Mitalee, " I mean I'm not exactly a polymath , or a genius savant or a brain or anything like that . But I do sort of understand one of the theories the wild , fur headed physicist came up with .  The one where the speed of light is discovered to be the same in all frames of reference . . . "







Mitalee , " And I understand that I can fall asleep faster than the speed of light which means I could possibly have savant syndrome . . . "








Mitalee , " Or just be a really good sleeper ! ZZZzzzzzzzzzzzz. "









Have a Terrific Tuesday!
See you soon.

Grey Skies Sunny




Tulip ,  " It's a long weekend here in Canada. We have been experiencing grey skies and rain but guess what? It's still sunny here in the foster room ."








Tulip , " Here I am playing with the reason my skies aren't really grey. Peek-a-boo , I see you sings K. "









Tulip , " Uh huh. You guessed it ! K is visiting over the long weekend ! "








Tulip , " And she is sleeping overnight with me in the foster room !









Tulip , " Sometimes , being with the person you love the most in the whole , wide world , can make grey skies sunny ! "









Have a Marvelous Monday!
See you soon.

Portrait of an Esme as a young cat .





Esme , " LP keeps saying it is far too difficult to get a picture of me so I thought I would indulge her today (largely so she will stop following me around like a stalker . . .). "









Esme , " Here I am looking near angelic ."








Esme , " Looking coyly away ."








Esme , " I changed location for my full frontal. And that's a wrap! I hope LP aka Stalker lets me relax for the rest of the day and weekend. A young artist like me needs her space ! "








Have a Fabulous Friday.
Have a great long weekend fellow Canadians!
See you  Monday.
