Friday Cat Blogging – 27 May 2011

My sister headed off to England for a vacation yesterday, and before she left she insisted that I post some extra special catblogging today so that she’d have something good to look at while staving off jet lag on her first evening in town. We always do our best on that front, but it really all depends on the cats, doesn’t it?

So how’s this? On the left, Inkblot is camped out on our new sofa, which Karen hasn’t yet been over to see. So this is her first look at it. Inkblot’s bright-eyed expression is due to timing: I took this picture last night just as Marian was shuttling food around for dinnertime, and that perked him up. On the right, Domino is basking (as usual) in the sun this morning. However, this picture’s extra specialness was probably dimmed a bit because she kept batting the camera strap around instead of holding still in some kind of extra specially cute pose. Still, I hope this does the job.

Have a good Memorial Day weekend, everyone. There will probably be a light bit of posting this weekend, but normal blogging will resume on Tuesday.
