Vigilant Duo

Whatever is hiding behind the cement step does not have a chance! Boots and Rosebud are quite patient. I see determination in Boot’s eyes. What attracted me to this shot is the contrast of textures–soft cat fur, stiff whiskers, a cracked step, sprawling plants and algae. The cats exhibit stillness, yet there is a feeling that at any moment there will be pouncing action.

The soft subdued colors of the algae growth allows the vividness of the cats’ coloring to stand out.

Blessings!

A Little History

 

On August 29, 2010, the three of us flew from St. Louis to West Palm Beach. These two kittens were part of a litter of six adorable fur babies that Rose delivered on June 13, 2010. The nameless kitties were itty bitty and fit in one small carrier. What an adventurous journey we have had the past nine years! Grace and Chauncey bring Joe and me incredible joy and make us laugh everyday. They are inseparable. When they are not lazing about in the pink guest bedroom tormenting Maggie Mae, my tortie stray, they are in my office playing their Muse role.

I know my brother is giving their sister Rosebud and brothers Angus, Tigger and Bootsie extra special treats today. We miss all of you and Mom Rose bunches.

Bountiful Blessings!
Linda

All black cats deserve
Endless favorable guardians

Hated, idolized, jinxed, killed
Loving, mysterious

On one of my farm vacations, I watched Boots explore a hay field during mid morning. He was hunting for field mice, playing with the other kitties and poking around at the bottom of a hay bale. All of a sudden he leaped on top of it. I was fortunate to snap this action shot. I never knew what captured his attention. Later I created a haiku and discovered the joy of a photograph prompt.

Captivating Chauncey

A camera at the breakfast table got this morning Chauncey shot! Mirror images, glass, reflections, and water colors intrigue me.
