Cat & Mouse

“When my cats aren’t happy, I’m not happy. Not because I care about their mood but because I know they’re just sitting there thinking up ways to get even.”
-Percy Bysshe Shelley

Cooper daydreams about the day he finally kills Shredrick, his nearly-destroyed mouse, who’s literally been hanging on by a thread these last few weeks.

“And how do you know that you’re mad?”
“To begin with,” said the Cat, “a dog’s not mad. You grant that?”
“I suppose so,” said Alice.
“Well then,” the Cat went on, “you see a dog growls when it’s angry, and wags its tail when it’s pleased. Now I growl when I’m pleased, and wag my tail when I’m angry. Therefore I’m mad.”
― Lewis Carroll,
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass

Happy New Year!

“A cat’s New Year dream is mostly a bird! Don’t be like a cat; in the New Year, dream something that you have never dreamed! Target for new things!”
― Mehmet Murat ildan

I’d like to wish all my readers a happy new year and much success in 2016!

Being the cat fanatic I am, I thought it only appropriate to start the year off with a cat-featuring blog post. Cali and Waffles are rescues that are grateful for better lives off the street and in forever homes in 2016.

Rescued

The cat is the animal to whom the Creator gave the biggest eye, the softest fur, the most supremely delicate nostrils, a mobile ear, an unrivaled paw and a curved claw borrowed from the rose-tree.
–Colette

This little cutie is Cali; we rescued each other back in May. Cali spent the last several years living on the roof of an abandoned Mexican restaurant on the side of a busy highway. She has abrasions on her corneas of unknown origin, but it doesn’t seem to have impacted her vision too badly. She’s a munchkin calico; she has a normal sized body with short little legs. She hasn’t quite gotten used to the thing that clicks and makes a bright flash of light, but she’s learning…

Ninja

“When the tea is brought at five o’clock
And all the neat curtains are drawn with care,
The little black cat with bright green eyes
Is suddenly purring there”
— Harold Monro

Happy Caturday!

“We…we could be friends.’

We COULD be rare specimens of an exotic breed of dancing African elephants, but we’re not. At least, I’M not.”
― Neil Gaiman, Coraline

Some of you may have already seen this photo on my Facebook page, but as it’s Saturday — or “Caturday”, according to your preference — I thought I’d share it here, too. I had a few minutes to get to know Charley while shooting an in-home client portrait last week, and she kindly agreed to let me take her photo.

What’s this?

Curiosity is the very basis of education and if you tell me that curiosity killed the cat, I say only the cat died nobly.
