Yesterday, Facebook reminded me of the time we got bored at a cat show and put some of the hair I had groomed off Jacoby and put it on his head.
After I did that, we noticed that the pile of hair on Jake’s bore a striking resemblance to a certain American president.
Especially from the side.
Jake was always such a good sport…
…and he really could rock anything he wore, too. I miss that.
When the cats go outside, one thing they love to do is take a dust bath.
Look at Alfred luxuriating in the warm dust at the base of this tree.
Lorelai found a different tree…but the same lovely warm dust.
And finally….here we have Izaak, also rolling in the wonderful warm dust. They are so much fun to watch outside.
Last week, my friend Sanna-Leena posted this awesome photo of Kiipi and her kitten on the Facebook group This IS an airport, please announce your departure: Aeroplane ear posting. I love Kiipi, and I have drawn her before. When I saw this photo, I wanted to draw it.
I tilted the photo a little, so I could add in their tails. This is my preliminary sketch.
I decided I wanted each cat on its own layer. This is my second sketch of Kiipi.
And this is the second sketch of the kitten.
And here they are together. The next step is ink, and then after that colour and texture. Stay tuned!
Dashiell and Izaak eat together in our bedroom. Breakfast, chicken neck snacktime, and dinner, those two always dine together. This is because, for whatever reason, Dash doesn’t try to steal Zak’s food (the way Alfred or Lorelai would), and since Zak only eats raw, he won’t try to eat Dash’s meal.
This is one of the reasons this pair are such fast friends. When the other three cats are done eating, and I open the bedroom up, I often find them cuddling together, sometimes on our bed, and sometimes in this fuzzy pink cat bed we won at a cat show.
It’s pretty girly. We thought it might be good for Rory, but she never sleeps in there. Angel does sometimes, but it’s mainly Zak and Dash who nap in that bed. The bed also has the white blanket that was in Zak’s crate when he came here from Poland, so that may be part of the attraction.
Who says boys can’t rock the pink?
I fall asleep watching television pretty much every night. I never see the end of movies we watch.
I guess Angel decided I needed some company and settled herself on top of the big sofa cushion and joined me in my little nap.
When Izaak decides he wants to nap somewhere…
…He naps there.
Regardless of whether or not someone else is already napping there.
There’s this one old cat tree is especially popular for some reason.
Dashiell has taken a liking to sleeping in the cat bed in that tree.
And because Dash wants to sleep there…so does Zak.
And when Izaak wants something…he usually gets it.
Whether you want it or not…if a Singapura wants to cuddle with you, you CUDDLE!
