OK STOP! Just hold it right there!!!

Penny Hold it SwittersBPenny the Cat really doesn’t have many facial expressions while her eyes are open. She makes plenty of displeased sounds and gestures. But her countenance is pretty uniform…one of impatience perhaps, even annoyance? Somehow we are kindred spirits…its odd me being so nice and all.

Ninnie the Cat: Caught with Fur & Feathers!!!

At an ungodly hour this morning, Emma the Dog was very persistent in trying to get me up. Emma has an internal alarm clock for morning chow that is unsettling in its accuracy. This was too early, plus Ninnie the Cat has taken to assisting Emma the Dog in getting me up for morning food by standing on my chest and turning in circles. Ninnie was no where to be seen.

Emma persisted. She must have to go outside. Ugh. Ok, I got up and sleepily wandered downstairs. A rustling sound. Emma stopped and sat. Odd. More rustling sounds. I peered around the corner into the living room where my ‘temporary’ fly tying’ station is arranged.

Whoa!!!! There was Ninnie the Cat knee deep in fur, feathers and tying thread!!! That little @#$&!

Ninnie Tugging Feathers SBThese particular materials had been strewn about yesterday afternoon when I came home from work. I could not identify the culprit at the time (Ninnie or Penny). I stuffed the materials into a bag and stuffed that bag well beneath a heavier object at the bottom of a cardboard box. Well determination and predatory instincts prevailed it appears.

Maybe Emma the Dog was snitching on Ninnie the Cat. Paybacks for her nagging habit of attacking Emma’s always wagging tail?

Photography: Effectively Using Props……..

doggles1On a recent outing to Seaside, Oregon, we came upon a young man with a bicycle and basket mounted on front. Inside the basket was this little guy. The pup was calm and adept at posing as a stream of adoring young women made their way to ooooh and aaaah at the little guy. Not surprisingly, the young man enjoyed the attention. No he wasn’t selling the Doggles or the little Helmet. He just took in the attention having effectively used his props.

The Disgruntled Cat & The Intruder

Penny the Cat SwittersB SwittersB SwittersBAlpha Kitty, Penny the Cat, stares at me each morning this way. An earnest gaze  and persistent stance upon my chest, her eighteen18 pounds atop her paws presses downward as she kneads my  chest. Food. She is the designated pest for the other cat and the two dogs. Wake up.

She has been out of sorts lately since a new kitten entered our home, a rescue, with great energy and a total lack of respect for Penny. Eventually, Penny has come around week by week.

The kitten is now found sleeping near Penny and staring out the same window at the visiting hummingbirds. They are working out the place of things. Less piddling in odd places. Less hissing and smacking with paws. Surprisingly, most patient have been the two dogs…giving a wide birth to the two felines figuring out turf.

Yellow Labs & Shedding

If you have ever had certain breeds of dogs (even cats) you know what shedding is like. I do not wear a stitch of clothing that does not contain at least a few Emma hairs. The cars carry signs of her ride alongs. Guaranteed there will be shedded hair visible on the carpet, wooden floors and tiles a few hours after intense vacuuming. Lately, Emma has been shedding in clumps. She does this in the Fall, before putting on her Winter coat and again in the late Spring. For 10+ years we have put up with this and it is what it is…I wouldn’t trade it.

Emma CollageThis week, my wife decided she had to do something besides the ‘normal’ brushing. So she took Emma out back and sat down to brush out some of that hair. Pretty ghastly isn’t it. And, it leaves no doubt that brushings, vacuumings and lint brushes will never fully conquer the hairs of a Yellow Lab.

Was this the scene of a shearing or a brushing?
