Earth Hour 2009

Nicki & Sandi thought Earth Hour 2009 was great fun! Next year everyone is invited over to nap, eat and play with all of their cat toys. Be there or be square!

A. M. bird watch

Now that spring is TECHNICALLY "here" (it has been freezing at night & almost as cold during the day due to wind chill!) Nicki begins each day in her window side bed on the watch for BIRDS.

Not now.

Sandi decided she did not want to play today. So her bouncie ball sat there until she gave it a good swat onto the floor. I think she was trying to prove a point.  


How to play fetch:
find a toy the cat  favors.
Toss it.
They pick it up and bring it back to you.
Or at least bring it to the same room as you are in.
Always praise your cat: we say"good girl" and pet their heads.
Repeat until cat tires and sits down for the count. 
(Sandi actually sits on her toy when she has had enough)
(Nicki "loses" her toy under something when she is done)

One cat's mantra

We are bored.
We are tired.
We are sleeping now.
We are ready to play.
We want food
We want that other food that tastes better!
Scratch me here
No! Not there! Here
No! No! Stop clipping my sharp nails!
Sun. Sleep. HappyHappyHappy

Cat condo

Our cats have the most creative living & sleeping arrangements. This is their idea of a split level cat condo. Or a bunk bed.

snow & card board

Nicki & Sandi have had an exciting past few days : they got a new cardboard box ! Never mind that it is so small that neither  one can fit into it ! That has not stopped both from trying various contortions  so as to somehow fit. It would be funny if it did not look so awfully uncomfortable! 
And then there was snow! Both cats took turns gazing out the window at the flakes and wind gusts. 
By the end of today, as things began to get chilly, Nicki took refuge in the dresser amid the insulation of laundry.

Candid images of N. & S.

Here Sandi sits on one of her favorite perches-atop my boxes of smaller silkscreened images and below my current collection of inspiration. 
And here Sandi shows off just how pretty she looks in a sea of magenta.
