Photography: I was lost in thought, when I turned my head to the right. And, there perched nearby was Ninnie the Cat. I hadn’t noticed her arrival. The sentinel, ever alert, she reminds me of an owl. Her countenance never changes. It is hard to tell by her eyes what is happening with her except they dart here and there at all times. No sleepy looks or half closed lids. Ever vigilant. She kind of freaks me out sometimes (no, not like the guy hiding in the bedroom from the family cat!). Except she is my gentle, sit on my chest, tap my face with her paw, alarm clock each morning without fail. “Time to eat!”
