it's turned cold down here in the southern hemisphere. Here's a photo of a pair of jeans drying under the fan heater on the wall. You will notice that two cats have found a warm place to sit, one on each jean. I like the way cats' brains work.

Here's a cat in After the Snooter. It has been caught short, on the wrong side of the door.

Knowing the wrongness of fouling the carpet, it manages to stack its poo vertically against the door.

I like the way a cat presents its work for view:

The electric light in the bathroom failed over the weekend. The wife of my bosom gets up so early that she's been showering in the dark at both ends of the day, and it's not something easily done by candlelight. She says she hasn't seen herself for three days.

If she fails to see herself, does she cease to exist?

Hi Eddie:
Thta's why I'm weak in the presence of she-cats on high-heels shoes: I like the way their feline sensuality works!
But, do you think it's right mixing cats and water in the same article?
Take care

Our cat is very particular where she poos, but doesn't give a damn where she vomits.

Whenever I used to shower by candlelight it was always a toss up between dropping the soap or dropping the candle, but the elegant solution to that was my own little invention, the soap candle. My underarm hair still hasn't grown back.

When our cat was just a kitten, she had some issues with bowel control. The funniest was the instance where she didn't have enough time to make it all the way to the litter box - she found the next best thing which was a large tupperware bowl sitting on the floor of the art studio. We discovered it some time later and were stunned at her thoughtfulness.

Tita, yes I saw that.
I blogged about that drawing and the finished cover here.
Interestingly, I lifted the middle image from a newsprint source, perhaps my letter page, as I no longer had the original.

That brighten my day, reminded me whenever I took the clothes out of the dyer my cat Pandora would love to climb into the warm clothes. Yes, cats know how to seek comfort, thanks for the smile, just found out I have skin cancer, and you blog brighten my day! Bless you!
