Break Time

Kitty hiding in blankets from
TheJigsawPuzzles.com

When I get a couple of minutes to breathe, I've found that working online jigsaw puzzles is a great stress reliever.  All because of Colehaus Cats!  Every once in awhile, Colehaus Cats posts a custom puzzle made from their own photos, and I have gotten hooked on those images.

Of course, I like jigsaw puzzles with a kitty in it, or a famous work of art. Sometimes, there are beautiful photographs of birds, or lions, or a water buffalo! You can change how many pieces your puzzle will have, or the style of the jigsaw, and there is a timer so you can have a competition.  But I simply like testing my skills as a way to 'zone out' for 10 or 15 minutes at a time.

Try it; you might like it!

8/17/17: Black Cat Appreciation Day

Of course I honor Chucky, our resident black cat, for today's Black Cat Appreciation Day.

Have camera, zeroing in on target:

Um...rats, let's try again...

...Eek!  No good...c'mon, Chuck...

...seriously?  What the hey....?

...try from above...
DRAT!
What shall I do....?
...Use a photo taken last week!
Handsome Chuck
Of course, we mustn't forget our friendly feral, Sweetie!

Sweetie, The 'O' Cat
Black furred cats are so silky, so gorgeous!  Everyone ought to get one of their own, methinks.  Yes?

My 'Hood Boycatfriends

Sneakers, putting it out there!
Storm up close
He's got a cool racing stripe
on his back
Sly is gorgeous!
 SHHH!!!

Remember how I asked you yesterday to keep quiet about my purchase of a new book?  Well, today...don't tell Patty O'Malley about Sneakers, Storm or Sly!  He doesn't know about my other boycatfriends, who purr for me, roll over for belly rubs, and give me head bunts!  Sly even follows me down the street.  Patty thinks he's the only outside cat that I love. These guys all have owners, but they wait for me daily, and then seriously love on me when I stop by!  And who am I to turn down a bit of boykitty snuggle?  πŸ˜½πŸ˜»πŸ˜Έ

Hot Off The Presses!

Cat Shining Bright by Shirley Rousseau Murphy came out today, and I drove to the local bookstore to purchase a copy on my lunch break. Even managed to read a couple of chapters...

Has that new book smell!
I wore my Hula Cats socks in honor
of the new book
Close Up of Hula Cat!
I started reading The Joey Grey Mysteries in 2009, when I discovered the series while kicking around the public library.  Went out and purchased every book already published, and read them in order. Now as new books appear, I drive to the bookstore and buy!  Yes, they are cheaper if pre-ordered, but the act of picking it off the shelf is now a thrill that I relish.  A routine, if you will...and we all know how much cats LOVE routine!

Shhh...don't tell The Hubby; he thinks I only pick up books at the resale shops.

Close Encounter

Angel let her curiosity get the better of her!  My iPhone was the object of her sniffing...

"Hey Mama, what's dat?"

"?!?"

"Up Close and Personal!"


So, I played with my Prisma app, and love the result!
"Whoa, Dude!"
