cats: fighter practice edition

After FAR too long, Loiosh got to go to fighter practice again! & this is how he felt about it.


[ Loiosh, an orange tabby wearing a green harness, is meatloafed up on a green picnic table. His ears are stuck out at a variety of angles and he’s giving the camera some pretty epic side-eye. ]

… okay, look, no, he WAS really happy to be seeing people again, I just maybe didn’t get the best pics of the process. Continue reading cats: fighter practice edition

cats: bored on the dash edition

Tom didn’t wind up with much time for adventuring on our trip to Colorado, alas. Partly due to most of our stops being at fighter practice, which involves PEOPLE, but also cos we didn’t wind up with time to stop anywhere he’d be able to get a good ramble.

I’ll have to make it up to him, but in the meantime, he spent a lot of time flopped on the dashboard.


[ Major Tom, a big grey tabby, is half-curled on the van’s dashboard, staring off to the right. His head is resting on one forepaw. The windshield behind him is pretty dirty. ]

cats: extreme patience edition

We spent the weekend in Colorado again, mostly for the purpose of moving stuff to the storage place, but we did manage to hit TWO fighter practices on Sunday, in Aarquelle & Dragonsspine.

Given the time gap in between, we had about an hour to wander around a park in Colorado Springs before anyone else showed up. There was a playground, so naturally I stuck Loiosh in a baby swing.

Y’all. This cat.

cats: toes & washing edition

Hey y’all! Sorry for the lack of a second cat post last week, the housing situation is being really uncertain & stress made my guts hate me for a couple days, but I’m semi-functional again, at least for the moment.

In the meantime, here’s a boy!


[ Loiosh, an orange tabby, is seen in close up, looking pensive. He’s laying in a cat bed covered in red and blue batik fabric. ]

cats: extreme patience edition

This is Sigdis, one of new roommate Morgyn’s cats, & she thought she was the Most Elegant with her lovely earring. Bast wears earrings, too, right?


[ Sigdis, a black cat with a white spot on her chest, is seen in close-up, gazing grandly off to the left. She is proudly wearing a bright yellow silicone ring, the kind you put around a house key, around her right ear. ]

cats: flopping edition

It’s mostly been too HOT for Woods Day, & anyway I need to make a BUNCH of soap, so we’ve been sticking close to home. Which is fine; the boys are getting a chance to get used to new roommates. Mostly Jasper, who also took all these pics.


[ There’s a cat bed stuffed into the bottom shelf on a wooden desk. Major Tom, a big grey tabby, has stuffed himself into it, and he looks inordinately pleased about this. ] Continue reading cats: flopping edition

cats: st0ner edition

okay STRICTLY SPEAKING spider plants are a mild hallucinogen for cats, so it’s not QUITE the same as being st0ned, but close enough

Loiosh really loves being st0ned. It’s totally worth the really precarious perch.


[ A really terrible photo of Loiosh, an orange tabby, perched on the edges of a wooden box on a shelf and nomming on a baby spider plant hanging from the big spider plant above. ] Continue reading cats: st0ner edition

cats: everything but the alpacas edition

Loiosh also got to visit the lambs, who were VERY curious but VERY loud about it, which he really didn’t love.


[ Loiosh, an orange tabby wearing a green harness, is in the foreground of the shot; his stroller is facing a paddock full of fluffy white lambs, but he has turned away. Most of the lambs are looking at him, ears perked forwards. ] Continue reading cats: everything but the alpacas edition
