Photo(s) of the Day: Sunday Mornings

Sunday mornings with Baby K are the best. She has been sleeping until about 9 a.m., so on Sundays I get to wake her up for a change – to get ready for church. I love opening her curtains, singing to her, and watching her stretch, squeak, and squirm, as if to say, “I’m not ready to wake up yet, Mom!” Once her eyes open she’s full of smiles. This weekend my sister and nephew got to witness this highlight of my week.

And by the way, Baby K is featured on my friend Mandy’s blog today – check it out!

Photo of the Day: Crazy Cat

After spending way too much money in vet bills, I think we’ve officially adopted the black cat we rescued a couple of months ago. It just occurred to me that I’d only taken one picture of him. After trying for quite a while yesterday, I realize why. He doesn’t sit still for one. single. second. He’s the most affectionate cat you’ll ever meet, but he still doesn’t get along great with our other cat. He chases her in what seems to be an assertion of dominance. Any tips out there?

Photo of the Day: Lost Kitty

I decided to continue with the cat trend today. Two nights ago we found a cat outside our local community center. Now, I wouldn’t normally bring home a stray cat. But this guy came right up to me and let me pet him, he rubbed up against me, and he followed me all the way to the car. He was declawed and looked like he belonged to someone, but he had no collar, and the closest houses were across a busy intersection. So we (this was a mutual decision between my husband and I) decided to bring him home. He’s been living in our garage for two days, but I can tell by his constant meowing that he’s ready to come inside. If the owner doesn’t respond to our fliers quickly, we may just have a second kitty!

Here are Tuesday and Wednesday’s cat photos, if you missed them.
