Raising a Paw to You

“The cat lives alone, has no need of society, obey only when she pleases, pretends to sleep that she may see more clearly, and scratches everything upon which she can lay her claws.” Francois R. Chateaubriand

“The cat is the animal to whom the Creator gave the biggest eyes, the softest fur, the most supremely delicate nostrils, a mobile ear and an unrivaled paws with curved claws borrowed from the rose tree.”  Sidonie Gabrielle

Penny-Tabby Cat-Cat Photography-reaching-Family Pets- SwittersBMore often than not, Penny the Cat is invisible. Since she came to us almost fours years ago this week, she has rarely parcelled out much affection to anyone but me now and then. I can occasionally feel her wedged in beside me at night in bed. I will place my hand on her side and she does not stir. Try that in the daytime and you may receive teeth or claws in response for violating her space.

Since Ninnie the Cat (Tortoise Shell Calico) came into our lives a year ago, she has been a paw full for Penny to contend with. This makes Penny the Cat all the more cantankerous to deal with. Many mornings, I am awakened by Penny brushing her paw against my face or neck to alert me it is time to get up and feed the critters. I only receive a faint hint of the retracted claws drawn down against my skin.


Ever notice my banner?

My son, Tony, then 17 y/0, perched this Adams Dry Fly atop his thumb and snapped the shot with the sun setting in the distance behind the fly. Always a creative eye. I adopted the image for SwittersB’s blog banner. A perfect combination of photography, fly fishing, nature, imagination and creativity.

Camping: Early Morning

camping-morning light-photography-woods-SwittersBCamping and early morning: I am up before anyone else. There is a chill in the shadows, so I seek the emerging sunshine and it offers that hint of warmth to the face. The air at higher altitude is refreshing and crisp. A few sounds carry through the woods…someone else is up early. A waft of smoke in the distance from a campfire. The birds are chirping. A few chipmunks scurry about. It is time to sit, to retain the morning calm and enjoy the solitude.
