Zoë
Zoë’s big smile

It’s been a while since I posted a Caturday entry. Today we are entertained by Danï and Zoë. Zoë’s photo came from a series taken outside in out screened-in area. She decided to do a series of poses on top of a towel we’d drapped across one of the wicker lounges. She was full of playfulness (as they all are), stretching and rolling from side to side. This particular photo appeals to me because it brings out the green in her eyes, and it shows he big smile. The subtle dilute tortie colors are also clearly delineated, especially the little splashes of ginger.

Danï Watching
Danï watching the mysterious sink

Danï has the highest curiosity quotient of all the cats. Here she’s carefully watching the sink as the disk washer off to the left and beneath is is working. The disk washer is an extremely quiet KitchenAid. You can’t hear it working unless you’re right on top of it. The dishwasher is physically connected to the right sink where the food disposal is located, so that if you’re right at the edge like Danï is you can hear the dishwasher working. That’s what’s happening here. Little Danï sat there for nearly an hour before she decided nothing was going to come out, at which point she jumped down to play with her clowder mates.

Both photos were taken with the iPhone 11 Pro Max, as that’s all I had with me at the time. Both are straight out of the camera, with the exception of Zoë’s photo, which I cropped square. And Zoë’s photo was also taken in portrait mode, which is why the ear tips are blurred. At this point in my life I don’t care anymore. It’s a trivial defect at best.

caturday

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve added a Caturday entry. Today’s entry is all about Beau. Beau has taken to sitting beside me on the arm of my chair whenever I do a bit of work, which fills my lap. On this day he walked up, across the Chromebook on my lap, and settled down right next to me on the sofa arm in his turkey position. I grabbed my iPhone and grabbed the photo. Then I got back to work on my Chromebook. He stayed in that spot until I finished and closed up my Chromebook and put it away. That was the signal for him to settle across my lap and for me to give him some back rubs.

The whole time he was on the sofa arm he gave me his undivided attention, which meant the stare.

They are all little characters.
