The little polydactyl kitten that my sister rescued from a grocery parking lot has been enjoying its new life. When she’s not too busy chasing Charlie (the other cat) around the house, she likes to lounge around on the sofas with her long, wispy tail, swinging ever so delicately about.
The winter is slowly showing signs of it’s departure down here in the South. On good occasions, like this past week, the only remnants of its presence comes to us in chilly breezes, accompanied by those blazing orange sunsets around 6 o’clock in the evenings.

A Caturday post: I’ve been feeding this stray cat for a while now and its been coming by the house more often lately.

Well, the weather cleared up beautifully by the time I came home from work so I immediately took the opportunity to finally take Mikey out for a ride through the neighborhood. I had my iPhone in hand for some spontaneous photo shoots […]
Well, not really. This is Houston after all. But the temperature is below the sanity level for Houstonians, so grab your cats and hug ’em tight! burrrr. I told Maggie, it’s cold outside and she responded in subtitles before my very eyes, “I’m pretty hairy, so I think I’ll be ok.” Good luck humans.
