Talking Possum

This cat has lost her marbles lately.  After  wakening me  from deep sleeps last night because she figured she wanted to be out rather than in, she then spent the day imposing her will upon me as well! When I try to ignore her, this beseeching look along with loud plaintive wails, soon have me hustling to do her bidding.  Not sure when she stopped being my cat and I started being her bell hop.

Let Me In!!

The weather has warmed up, so this pesky cat is in & out 14 times a day.  If I ignore her, this is the sight at the kitchen window.  Who can evade the intensity of that glare!?
I count my blessings though because it could be worse; my sister had a cat once who would jump straight up in the air and hit the doorbell when she wanted in. That was alright except that she mostly did it around 3 in the morning! At 3 a.m. this one is a snug in bed. Like I say, it could be worse.

Stare Down at Breakfast

This crazy cat has cabin fever! Her first trip into our new winter season was this morning, and she freaked! If I hadn’t opened the door, she’d have left a Wily Coyote style hole in it on her way through!  So she stalks me, she spends time glaring out the window. . She chases her toys, and then when she goes missing, I’ll find a big lump under the covers in my bed!! This is the stare down I got while making breakfast this morning. It might be a long winter.

Over the Moon Kitty

Last night this crazy cat came in and sprawled on the rug at my feet in what I call her “Aren’t I pretty?” pose.  She looks like she’s flying, complete with a kink in her tail.  So I did a pen & ink sketch of her right then, and took a photo.  Today I re-did the sketch on watercolour paper and made her jump over the moon. That’s the great thing about being an artist…you can even make your cat do things she has no intention of doing!   SOLD

Mad Possum

Can you see that p.o’d look in her eyes, and the one cocked ear?  She was camped out on top of the barbecue, one of her favourite roosts, and the magpies proceeded to harass her. It’s on-going around here, and so far the magpies win, hands down….or should I say wing tips down?

Magpie Drama

There’s a lot of Magpie Drama around here these days.  They’re causing trouble with the robins and the blackbirds, probably raiding their nests.  And when they’re between jobs like that, they harass poor Possum. 
You can tell that I caught him here scolding furiously, with his hands on both hips!

The Varmint

It’s time you had the full benefit of the stare that I get on a regular basis around here.  Possum sends her best wishes & so do I.

Wesley

Here’s an “almost daily” for you. This is Wesley, who a neighbour brought to me; he’d been wandering the hood for several days, apparently lost.  I kept him for a day, then quickly off to the SPCA….another day with him & I’da been a goner!  He loved to gaze into my face with this slightly daft expression, and his eyes are “off”, which only endeared him further!  Absolutely adorable.  However, Possum was outraged and there were some pretty explosive kitty fisticuffs happening.  I will be checking in to be sure he gets a home….if not, I promised I’d come back for him.

Heart Throb Kitty

You’re getting more critters from my house.  This December series has made me aware of all the “toys” I have here.  I truly enjoy all these treasures, and notice them every day.  I think the creativity that made them gives me a boost, and it’s fun to honour that by painting them.

This is a tree ornament that I leave out all year because it’s so funky and adorable. It’s about 3″ high, and  is 3 dimensional, made of tin. Stay tuned; there’s lots more where this came from.
