Black and White Sunday: Nine & The Fly

K8 took this photo a couple of years ago of Mr. Nine and a bug on the backdoor screen.

Isn’t it so spring? What’s your favorite bug?

Wonderful Wednesday: Why Cats Nap

Did you know that cats sleep an estimated 18 – 20 hours a day? If you own a cat you know that they are most active when it is dark out and especially at dusk and dawn. You want to sleep and they want to play. Then, when you get up in the morning they have breakfast and go to sleep. If you have ever brought home a kitten, this can drive you crazy.

Well, domestic cat behavior is not that removed from their ancestors, the large cats like lions and tigers, who hunt at night. They lay low at the darker night-time and warmer day-time hours, when other predators may be out and about. Have you seen your kitty play like she is stalking and capturing her prey, just like a big cat would? All of that is just inherited cat instinct, like when to sleep.

Your indoor domesticated cat will adjust its sleeping schedule to be with you during the day more, especially around its feeding schedule, but outdoor cats tend to stay on their instinctual night schedule. I figure if we understand that our cat is just being, well a cat, it might help us understand why they do what they do. Sweet dreams, Kitty!

Monday Mischief: Nice 2 Come Home 2 You

After a walk, it is nice to come home to cats waiting for you at the front door. It is so welcoming. Especially, if it was raining on you. Louise hates the rain, but she loves a walk. Sometimes it is a hard choice. But, it always nice to come home to your friends.

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Black and White Sunday: We Love Mommy

We just love our Mommy so much. Who else would put up with all our whining and antics? She has the best lap in the Mom business, especially when there is a blanket on it. And, she gives us the best treats.

Happy Mommy’s Day to all the caretakers out there. You deserve more than just one day!

Monday Mischief: Box Wars

I am not sure that I need to tell you the story, because the story kind of tells itself. Just so you know, Noel retained possession of the box for most of the evening. Enough said?

Wonderful Wednesday: De’tente

Charles here. Nine and I shared a moment at the back door screen so we could watch the birds. At least he did not try to kill me like Noel would. Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Monday Mischief: Don’t Mess With My Throne

Noel does not like that Charles is so close to her pillow throne.

(Roll over the pictures to see the conversation.)

Black and White Sunday: Favorites

This is one of my favorite pictures of Noel from May 2015. It is hard to believe that was 6 years ago. We used to have this bench seat in the kitchen and she loved to sit under the table and look out. Have a wonderful Black and White Sunday.

Black and White Sunday: Getting Along

Mini Cooper has been lying with Noel on the bed lately, when she is not chasing her down the hall. I am not sure why Mini and Nine have been picking on the old lady so much, but sometimes they even attack her when she is in the litter box (that is a low blow). When things are quiet, like in the picture above, they are so sweet.

Have a wonderful Black and White Sunday! Happy Easter to those who celebrate.
