Fenris Friday

What???? I rather like what Mom did with the light in this picture. The original was too dark to show off my eyes.

Oh, what am I doing. Why I am sitting in the shade, it's too hot to do anything else. While the cats and Tuiren love sun puddles I like Mommy much prefer the shade. ~Fenris, reporting for ATCAD

Thankful Thursday with Chimera and Yin

We are both thankful for the back porch, it is a nice spot to hang out with the Mom.

Chimera is  thankful for doors that open to let her inside when she is sleepy.

Chimera is also thankful for her tail, she says it is great fun to play with.

Yinny is thankful for the fence that keeps her safe.

Chimera is NOT thankful for the fence and ...

escapes over it whenever she pleases. ~Chimera & Yin, reporting for ATCAD

Wemembering Wednesday with Angel Socks

Toward the end I spent a lot of time sleeping but I liked being near my family so I would move around to be near them. Mommy's chair was a favorite spot as I could keep an eye on her in the kitchen and she sometimes came sat in the chair with me. She often turned the heating pad on for me and left it in the bottom of the chair for me. She was using it for her shoulder when she took this picture.

I was always spry enough to get into mischief. Yep Mommy caught me breaking the "DON'T GET ON THE KITCHEN COUNTERS" rule. Does your humans have that rule?

You have to admit she made it really easy to break that rule.

We won this cat bed in a contest long ago and it has always been my favorite cat bed. It was the purrfect size for me and complemented my coloring to purrfection.

I so wish I could have stayed with my family longer.

This was my nest in the garage that big blue thing wasn't usually on the floor though. Scylla knocked it off the shelf when she was stomping around above me, that girl is the clumsiest cat I have ever meet. My nest consisted of the navy blanket and the pillow placed next to the heater Daddy got us cats and the freezer. I stayed nice and warm there. ~Socks, reporting for ATCAD

Tuiren Tuesday

Does this picture look weird to you? it was taken in the fog. Fog is like walking in a cloud, it does interesting things with your ability to see, smell and hear.  Mommy doesn't usually come out in the fog but after days and days of storms Mommy said a foggy day was an improvement and out she and the kittens came. I made sure no rabbits attacked them.

Once the fog burnt off (what a funny expression as fog doesn't burn) you could see the Geese down at the pond really well. I enjoy watching them.

Mancat Monday Memories with Angel Socks

This was one of my favorite sleeping spots in winter. In the summer she has the comforter stuck under here and there is no room.

I liked having my siblings near me. I liked it even better when Mommy was in the bed with us.

Yinny is especially close with her brother Yang. She often gives him a bath.

She is a very gentle bath giver, she sometimes gave me a bath and occasionally she baths Scylla and Chimera.

Sometimes Yin and Yang start wrestling so it's best to keep your distance from the two of them when they are together. Scylla tolerates the youngsters antics pretty well.

They were always considerate enough not to disturb me.

Yin is very good about posing for pictures when Mom ask her too.

As you can see the rest of us aren't that cooperative with the picture taking deal.

And apparently I failed to teach Yang not to fall out of beds. He is a silly boy, but we all love him anyway. ~Socks, reporting for ATCAD

Scylla Sunday

Being in the Jungle Gym is a special treat for me. I hardly ever come in the backyard now that it is fenced for Fenris & Tuiren, but when I was a wee kitten me and Charybdis had a ball hanging out here.

You can see a long way from the top floor.

Mommy says I look very pretty today.

Hold on a minute and I will snap a selfie, got it.

Would you like to jon me laying in the sun beams?

I spy a Chimera Cat.

Yep, she is on the roof again!!!! Chimera is very hard to keep up with, she bounces over the fence with the greatest ease, she scales Jungle Gyms in the blink of an eye and she treats trees like speedways. ~Scylla, reporting for ATCAD

Caturday Art

Chimera kicks things off by walking through an out of this world landscape, she looks pretty alien herself if you ask us.

Scylla and Yang duke it out while Chimera looks on in this alternate universe.

Aged newspaper gives Tuiren an art noir look when paired with this frame.

 The Hummingbird Cottage

 Mommy created this scrapbook page to Celebrate Hot Air Balloon Day.

 And we colored some things for your enjoyment

Including this odd looking cat. ~ATCAD
