Have a purrfectly lovely day

"what humans are for"
"Why humans do the laundry"


This is Snuggles.
Clearly this is a cat who has trained her staff very well.

This is one of the wonderful things about cats -- how they always manage to find the perfect spot to curl up. Snuggles is adorable.

Snuggly. Makes me want some hot cocoa for reasons I can't explain.

Oddly, in the second photo he kinda looks like a basket case.

But we all know that's how they get us, the old..."I'm just an innocent little soul." Then they have you, and your servitude is guaranteed.

Janet, G-TEC was pleased yesterday when he found that blanket he likes to burrito in. He started in on a good old kneading session, and somehow ended up with it swirled around himself. I have seen Penelope wrap herself in a blanket a hundred times, but never Gossamer. I gave it a little tuck, he stopped kneading and curled into a nap. Life was good.

Right now, he's commandeered the living room sunbeam, and is nose-to-tail cozy and quiet.

I LOVE nestling season. He keeps warm at my hip pretty much every day when the sunbeams go away.

Love the cats! I spent yesterday with family, which meant I got some time with my son's two cats. It was nice to be around furry four-legged creatures again. My house has been so quiet since the unexpected death of the basset, Hugo, just after Halloween.

Snuggles sure looks like she has a good life :)

Our cat spurs us to fold our laundry - if we leave it in a pile on the couch, she sits on it and somehow manages to get fur on every single piece. I'm sure she considers it her contribution to the housework!

Love these thoughts for a Monday morning :)

OT: that earthquake in New Zealand late last night was massive - hoping all Reiders on that side of the water are safe...?

Looks idyllic… I kind of feel like I need to curl up and sleep in a laundry basket right now after being up all night after the big earthquake. We are all fine here in Wellington, just exhausted after spending several hours parked in the car up a hill because of tsunami warnings. Schools are closed and we've been told not to venture into the CBD today, so I'm working (and yawning a lot) from home.

Amazingly, the only damage to my house was a rack of of CDs that got thrown onto the floor. Only two cases were cracked. It could have been so much worse!

Any Reiders in the worse-hit South Island?

No outfit is complete without a few cat hairs.

Snuggles looks like she has settled from her election jitters. Let us pray that the rest of us also find a way to make it through the next few years.

Ah yes, laundry. I was carrying the hamper from upstairs to the basement this morning. Keet, my cat, tripped me on my way through the living room. As I picked up the clothes that had fallen out of the hamper, Keet pushed "his" blanket off the couch onto the floor, and meowed at me. Apparently he wanted his laundry done too.

His blanket is washed and dried, back on the couch, and he's happily napping on it. I get a gold star today!

Oh, I thought I commented...my browser was all screwy today.

Snuggles seems perfectly named. That was the crucial part of my comment!

Kae Ridwyn said...

Good to hear from you Kate, and I'm glad everything (well, apart from the CD cases) was fine with you. Some of the images we've seen here - of the airport, and road damage - looked pretty bad!

Claire Bobrow said...

Kate: so glad to know you're okay. Stay safe!

Snuggles, you are a tonic for the soul. Ah, the chin scratch. Pure bliss!
And, Snuggles, I can relate: doing the laundry make ME want to fall asleep, too. :-)

Kate, earthquakes are scary, I'm glad you are alright. I hope NZ quakes are done for awhile.

I live in the the Seattle area of Pacific Northwest coast where we have little earthquakes every week that we hardly feel... I think all the resident volcanoes have something to do with it. But the bigger ones are anxiety makers; you wonder if they will come back, are they done, where will I be when the next one hits and what about all that water out there. My advice is try not to think about it too much and keep all of us posted. Of course, the Seattle area is vulnerable too and expects a big one sooner than later – I hope it's later.

As another Pacific Northwesterner, I know we are due for the big one. I have not noticed all the small ones of late, for which I am thankful. Perhaps with the feared changes in the healthcare laws, a catastrophic earthquake is my best option.
Sorry to be morbid. The glow from a weekend kid lit illustrators retreat has already worn off, and now I am just worried.

Hope everyone is alright in NZ. Gald to have a report from at least one of you.
