Caturday

Stella (and Shadow) Incognito

It’s Caturday Saturday! Hope you all are enjoying a nice relaxing day. I know I amย am trying to.

We’ve had some changes and busyness in my household due to the new school year and subsequent colds that happen when you have about a million kids 5 and under all mixed in to a little classroom germ factory.

So it’s been a bit less relaxing and a bit more snot taming. But you know. Whatever.

So due to the above mentioned reasons I thought I’d just do a Caturday post this week.

It’s been a few months since I shared anything about Stella or Shadow. So here we go….

 

What has Stella been up to?

Well, she has been supervising my sewing projects, as long as the kids aren’t about.

Sometimes she visits with Shadow, taunting the fact that she lives the life of luxury. But Shadow knows that outside kitty freedom is awesome. Life may not be as easy but at least he’s living a life of risk and intrigue!

Shadow

Shadow has been doing very well. He survived the winter and is as fat and happy as ever. Very loving and friendly, that one.

Here he is with his “prize” last winter. So far he and Stella are 2-2 with the mouse catching. He has probably caught way more though. Sorry Stella.

The kitties have been hanging about the shadows of this blog but I like to talk about them every now and again. Who doesn’t love seeing cute kitties right?

Next week on the blog I hope to do some new posts…dessert and books! Can never have too much of either.

Well…one might give you diabetes. But you know. Viva la vida.

Haha jk.

Caturday

Stella in the Sunshine

Ah sweet sunshine. We have had more of it lately. I love to chill out and spend awhile in the afternoons soaking up the sun.

Stella decided it was safe to come out (the kids were distracted playing a game) and she decided that sunbeams are wonderful too.

In fact, she probably knows that better than I do.

Cats love sunshine. And somehow, cats and knitting always go together.

I’m knitting another dishcloth here..my 3rd one so far. It’s covered in cat hair by now but of course I’ll wash it first when it’s finished. ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿˆ๐Ÿˆ๐Ÿพ

Happy Caturday! Tuck into a bit of a sunbeam, if you can find one today๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Caturday

Eater of tape and other things…

**11/26/17-This post has been edited. I was super busy cooking a Thanksgiving dinner (yesterday) and that contributed to the quality of the post. So here is the edited version ๐Ÿ™‚

I like boxes,

I like tape.

Lick, raspy lick.

Crinkle, crackle crink

In the middle ofย 

The night.

Stella has this lovely habit of eating random things at night. Not completely random, I suppose. Said thing must be box-like, or tape-like, or string-like for her to be interested.

I have no idea what you’re talking about. I’m shocked you would even think such a thing of me.
  • Licking boxes=fun!
  • Chewing tape=super fun!
  • Eating a long peice of string and freaking me out=the best!

I do not know. Why she does it. It’s not like we have tons of boxes lying around. But if she finds one and fancies she needs fed or fresh water…she will definitely let me know. This is one of her quirks. I still love her for it.

But I wish she wouldn’t do it at night. Ah well. Who needs sleep anyway? (Says the tired Mom, who dearly loves her sleep.)

I still love you Stella, in spite of your quirks ๐Ÿ˜Šโค๐Ÿฑ

Happy Caturday!

In other news…

Can I just be real? Good. Well a lot of the time I’m like, “I don’t know what to write about for Caturday. Stella isn’t all that interesting. She’s kindof a boring cat.”

Sorry Stella. I love you and it’s not your fault housecat life is a tad dull.

It’s just been a regular week for our beloved kitty.

But in other news…

Our outside cat (Yes our. I have claimed the cat ๐Ÿ™‚ ) is actually not a “she” as I originally thought. Shadow is in fact a neutered male. No idea on his age or where he came from but he definitely has had some contact with humans at some point.

Inside cat=boring but sweet. Outside cat=mysterious origins, needy but grateful and loving. Both have been rescued. Both need our love, our care and our kindness.

Such a small thing to do, caring for a pet, an animal that needs you. But it’s a small way to make the world a better, kinder place. One small step ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy Caturday!
