OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis pic was taken on August 21, the day my cats received their new scratching post.  They had totally destroyed their first one.

Now, for Caturday, I present Stripey, resting in the window:

She will not like it when she realizes I’ve shared pics of her as she washes her toes.  Oh, well.  It’s my job as a mom to embarrass my children.  The four-legged ones as well as the two-legged one.

I missed last week’s Caturday.  My apologies to my cats and to my readers.  Last week (and the previous two, or was it three?) were absolutely crazy with my husband being sick.

I only caught the cats twice for Caturday…they are becoming sneaky like my teenager and don’t want to be on my blog.  Alas, I shall have to stoop to bribery.

Wait until next week, you two, I’ll have some type of bribe that will get you out of hiding and in front of my camera!

I think they were jealous that Shadow got a whole page yesterday for Wordless Wednesday and decided to be acrobats, so that I could click pics and add them to today.

Both cats will walk along the stair rail.  The top of the steps is where they are in each picture but as the stairs go down, the further it is to the floor.  The rail next to the French doors at the back of the house is open all the way to our finished basement….and yes, they will jump up to that rail and walk all the way to where they perch.

It was a busy Caturday morning.  I had a difficult time editing out which pictures to post.  There were just a few that were blurry and those were deleted.  The rest will be posted for your viewing enjoyment.

Well, Stripey pushed back and Boots got mad and got off the perch.

Suppertime at the Burke household.  Ron went out and got Chinese.  Boots thought she needed some shrimp fried rice, so she was circling the table and when Ron got up to get his fork, she thought it was her turn to eat.

And then there’s Stripey.  He doesn’t beg for food like Boots does.  Instead, he was playing in the box that my new kitchen gadget came in (see Wordless Wednesday).

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is Boots Tallulah, watching me check my email.  She loves to sit on the left side of my laptop.  It’s nice and warm there.  Sometimes she watches the screen and sometimes she’ll stare out the window (can you see it to the left?) and sometimes she turns her back to me.
