Cat-sitter tales

It's gorgeous today, bright and sunny. I have 2 bunnies and 11 cats to care for in their homes. Quite a display of colours, these felines are.  Brown tabbies, grey tabbies, a pastel calico & 2 vibrant calicos, an orange& white senior, an Abyssinian & 2 pure black cats. Have you ever seen an Abyssinian? Oh please, let me indulge myself. I can't get enough of this guy. Meet my little man, Simba.
Funniest darn cat you'd ever want to meet. 
He lives with 2 black beauties.
Midnight & Albert

& here's Joe
He wants out! The birds are calling and he is fit to be tied. Even cat treats don't interest him. He has other plans.
Then add my 6 to the total and that will be a lot of can-opening and cuddles to give. All sounds great to me. I met two new boys today and will show them to you next week along with a few others.

I'm playing around again with the table to make it pretty but fun for my grand-daughter. Flowers and bunnies will do the trick, I think.
A bobble-head lamb will grab her attention.
and there's nothing better than milk chocolate eggs 

Now, the trick is to keep the lid on and no snackin' & shut the dining-room doors to a quick-witted kitten.

hugs, Deb

  7. Happy Easter to you from all if us.
    Your photos of Midnight and Albert are just amazing! Black cats tend to be more difficult to photograph. Excellent job. We bet M&A's owners would love copies of your pix.

  8. HAPPY EASTER !!!!!

  9. Happy Easter. I had two Abby's, Krissie & Moochie. Those two sisters were total love bugs. They loved to play fetch and would run around like their tails were on fire. At eleven at night they would go to bed and holler for me to come to bed. They are missed but I'm so thankful they were in my life.

  10. Deb, you surely must have THE most pleasurable job on earth! Simba is mighty handsome - what colors and what a face!! And just on the note of catching up a bit on your posts - I'm always so pleased to see pics of Annie and Audrey - they're gorgeous together!
    Thanks so much for your kind words Deb - the cats do very naturally make their way into my art! My intention is to turn some of my art into printed cards for the sake of fundraising for the cats.
    Have a lovely week ahead
    - thanks as always for stopping by,
    hugs and cuddles to your lovely little crew
