Default Setting = Cats

First night of Chanukah 2019

Happy Chanukah! We got our chanukiah up and lit and placed in front of the window. I probably should have wiped down the soil there after I moved the plant from that spot. I was more concerned with making sure that the cords for the blinds were out of the way. Please forgive the dirt.

Cat on a Winter’s Day

I was looking forward to Christmas, too, because I have that day off. I had planned to bake and cook and read. Unfortunately for me, I woke up Sunday and thought “gee, I don’t feel all that well”. I was worse on Monday and really worse today. 😦 I don’t anticipate much baking or cooking in the near future. My day revolves around heating hot water for tea and filling a tall glass of iced water. As my mother would have said, I’ve drunk enough clear liquids to float a battleship.

It’s VERY difficult to get good pictures of monochromatic cats in bright sunshine

I have lots of role models, however, to help me figure out how to spend my time. I made a little nest for GC on the couch. I took the fleecy liner from the cat carrier and an unused door-draft-blocker and made her a spot. I appear to have been successful in pleasing her as she has been curled up there since its creation. WC even left her red couch to join in for an afternoon cuddle. BC loves the box on the radiator. It’s been there for years now. GC likes it too. I don’t think I’ve ever seen WC in that box. She definitely likes cushioned comfort.

Another adorable monochromatic cat in sunshine

A blog is a piece of the internet, and we all know that the internet is all about cats. From all of us being relaxed and slow. Wishing you and yours a joyous holiday season!

    Oh no!!! I’m so sorry that you’re sick! That sucks.

    I’ve never seen a white cat with a striped tail before! All the kitties look comfy-cozy.

    I had to put the neighbor’s cat back outside because I thought she was going to jump up into the enchilada pan when I was trying to serve up dinner! They must’ve smelled REALLY good. She forgot whatever manners she has.

    Happy Chanukah and hope you feel better soon!

    Thank you! Does WC’s tail look striped? If so – it’s from shadows. She is all white. GC is all gray. BC is all black except for 7 white hairs on her belly. 🙂 Our dog was also white & black. Heaven help me when I fall in love with a non-monochromatic pet!

    oh – I see now why you think her tail is striped – just ruffled fur. 🙂 no stripes.

    I had an all gray cat once and was surprised when they shaved her tummy to spay her and her skin was gray, too.
