and, of course, some cat photos

There was an article recently written how cats love their squares (see https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/if-i-fits-i-sits-experiment-shows-felines-also-sit-illusory-boxes-180977681/ , for example). Beau and the rest of our cats are no exception to this observation (‘If I fits, I sits’). In this specific example Beau is inside one of the outdoor tables, busily looking around.

Taken outside in the warm Florida day, Joan Jett is underneath one of the whicker furniture seats to get out of the direct sun. Our cats love the warmth, but not the direct sunshine.

This photo shows how much Lil’ Danï has grown in a little more than one year. She’s still small sitting next to one of the Gingersnaps, but not that much smaller. She’s growing into her many, many extra toes.

A Saturday without cats is an empty day; I suppose I could say that about every day. The two top photos are of Zoë and momma Joan Jett. They’re dilute Torties, a variant of Calico. If you look closely you can see black, white, gray and touches of ginger in their coats. They both share the same green eye color, but Zoë’s is more intense than mom’s. Of course Lil’ Danï is also Joan’s offspring, and she’s all Ginger. And everybody in this group is polydactyl. It would have been interesting to know who the male was that sired them.

The last two are Luke and Beau in various napping positions. Although the last photo might be of Luke as well; who can tell all curled up like that.

Cameras were all Olympus; Pen F with the Leica 25mm for all except Joan, OM-D E-M1.2 with the 2.8/12-40mm PRO for her’s.
