[Marisol, a very small longhaired calico, is standing in a low box on a set of wooden shelves. She’s looking up and to the right, and one little white forepaw is raised. Her ears and whiskers are both perked forward, interested, and she is slightly blurry with motion.]
Is she climbing up? Continue reading cats: where is Marisol going edition
[Major Tom, a big grey tabby, is meatloafed ona bright quilt, right next to a wood-paneled wall. His eyes are half-closed and he looks very content.]
All the humans here have been working our butts off, but the cats are mostly still serene. It turns out that having one cat who actually LIKES moving (that’d be Loiosh) helps the rest of the cats in the house deal with the usually-traumatic process.
You can see above how traumatized Tom is not. Continue reading cats: tomcat cuddles edition
[A somewhat blurry shot of the inside of the van, from the front seats. It’s moderately full of boxes. You can still see out the back, though.]
Yesterday was Schlepping Trip #2, feat. me hauling Yet More Stuff down to Alamosa, also Extremely Bored Loiosh. Continue reading SPOON: more schlepping
[Major Tom, a big grey tabby wearing a purple harness, sits in a blue cat stroller, looking out to the right of the camera.]
Tom’s been wiggly with spring coming in, so Jasper & I decided to take him along to run errands.
He was … not entirely sure about this, but it did get him out of the house, & he got a pup cup from the local coffeeshop, so he was pretty good with that.

[The road stretches out through the center of this wide shot; at the distant horizon, a hint of snow-covered mountains blends into the low clouds. The road is tree-lined on the left side; snowy fields on the right lead up to a snow-roofed barn.]
I haven’t been talking about it much, mostly because STRESS & I dunwanna, but we’re coming up on the end of our time in our winter haven. It’s time to move. Also the van registration was due, for which I needed the title, which was in Alamosa, so I decided to work on two problems at once by loading up the van & driving south. Continue reading SPOON: first load edition
[Major Tom, a big grey tabby with a pale belly, is rolling in the dirt. He’s mostly on his back, one forepaw tucked, head flung back to display his white chin.]
Look, Tom just really likes rolling in the dirt, is what. It’s nicely scratchy, it’s a good stretch, & especially this time of year, it’s his best way of getting rid of his winter coat.
… other than letting his humans brush him, anyways, but why would he DO that.

[Sigdis, a plump black cat, is laying on her side on a striped quilt. An orange beanie baby kitten is nuzzled up to her belly.]
It’s spring, & Sigdis is pretty sure that means kittens. Continue reading cats: Sigdis needs a kitten edition
[Major Tom, a big grey tabby, is curled up in a cat bed; Loiosh, an orange tabby, is hunkered up at the edge of the bed, trying to work his way in. Tom looks underwhelmed by this.]
It was chilly that night, is what. & every once in a while Loiosh attempts to make use of this. Continue reading cats: NOT CUDDLING edition
[Loiosh, an orange tabby, is hunkered up in the front seat of the car, butt in the air, forepaws tucked close to his hindpaws, face shoved into the seat. He looks extremely awkward.]
I don’t know what he was doing here, I really don’t. Continue reading cats: long drive home edition
[Loiosh, an orange tabby, is face-to-face with a torn-open packet of gooshy cat food.]
Yes, this IS an entire post of the boys eating churu at the vet. Continue reading cats: churu edition
