I “gave” all the cats a Christmas present of cardboard covers on top of the wet food I purchase for my two dogs from Chewy. Chewy sends out the 12-can cases covered with a special cardboard cover to better protect them in shipment. I dropped four of the cardboard tops on the kitchen floor for all to play with. Luke decided to try this one out, with his brother Bo checking out what Luke was doing.
Sometimes Luke tries different ways to fit into the box. In this case, he’s just a bit too chonky to fit in, pushing out the sides.
I decided to go black and white because color wouldn’t help tell the story any better, and there are times I like black and white photography.
New Years Eve was another traumatic event for all my little guys. As usual the neighbors set off their purchased fireworks, starting almost as soon as it got dark, and continued past midnight. I have a lot of little visitors snuggling in next to me while all the booms echoed through the neighborhood. When the festivities ended they slowly moved off to their regular sleeping spots for the rest of the evening.
The morning and the day were spent with everyone in the household napping and resting in general. They were all happy for the quiet of the day as well as the very pleasant sunny day. It hit 80°F today, not bad for the first of January. Everyone was outside of the house and around our screen-enclosed lanai (patio). I have discovered that the cats in particular are quite content to stay within the enclosed area, as long as they can go out and watch what’s happening on the outside of the screen. And that’s fine by me, as it keeps the cats from roaming around the neighborhood and considerably reduces their chances to pick up parasites such as heartworm.
Finally one from the garden. The hibiscuses have been blooming again, along with my azaleas and some other flowing plants. That means getting out in the garden pronto to get things weeded and replanted.
