Hummingbird Card From Girls

Posted by terrepruitt on September 17, 2021

I was doing some yoga or stretching and I notice a sparkle behind something.  This card had fallen behind some furniture.  I think it is lovely and a way for me to document some of the lovely cards I have received is to put them on my blog.  To me, they make a good Friday Photo.

Teagan Keeps The Toy

Posted by terrepruitt on September 3, 2021

I was playing with the cats one day and Teagan decided to just stop with it in her mouth. She said like that for so long, I gave up. Silly cat.

Teagan and Nessa for today’s Friday Photo.

Cats At Play

Posted by terrepruitt on July 12, 2021

Since my job is that of a movement instructor I don’t get up and get ready with showering and make-up. When I first started teaching I tried that because I didn’t like to face people without make-up but it just ended up smudged all over my face and so I had to give that up. It made it quick to get ready in the morning. I could basically get up twenty minutes before I had to leave.  But I feel that I have an additional job that requires I wake up at least an hour before I need to start getting ready (even though I (currently) teach from home via Zoom, there is still some getting ready that is required). The hour before I need to start getting ready is used for playing with our cats. For those of you that know cats, you know that the entire time playing with cats isn’t necessarily spent actually PLAYING, but I try.

I have learned that sometimes it is not about the action or the toy. I believe that sometimes they just like to do the waiting game together. You know the one where someone just swings the flyer back and forth (or up and down) and they just sit there watching and waiting? They seem content to just let me play with the toy. And while I sometimes get bored and frustrated I really do believe that is part of the play for them and they enjoy it. We are together.

Recently it occurred to me that I am dang fortunate that waiving a toy around or using one to poke under the Ripple Rug is entertainment to them. I remember thinking one morning how funny it was that something so simple brings them so much joy. Then my “oh, how funny” turned into “Thank God!” What if they required something more complicated? What if I had to come up with challenging things above and beyond a change of toy or an occasional “adventure” here or there? Egads I would be in trouble.

I do feel that indoor cats can become bored and that is why I get up every day with the sole purpose of playing with them, and I do think they need a change of pace every once in a while, but I grateful for the most part that they find so much joy in the simple things.

What is your cat’s favorite toy?

Two For One

Posted by terrepruitt on June 4, 2021

Sometimes these two share the tower.  I was able to get some quick shots before one got down.

This is Nessa and Teagan for today’s Friday Photo.

Under The Christmas Tree Is Where I Will Be

Posted by terrepruitt on January 15, 2021

Hundreds of pictures of the cats. Here they are under the Christmas tree again. I have found that a tree on a table seems to work well for all of us. It is off the ground out of the cats on-all-fours-eyesight, it allows them their treasured spot in the sun, it allows room for a lot of presents, it just works for us.

They will be happy tomorrow when the tree is gone and their tower is back in its place.

Under The Christmas Tree

Posted by terrepruitt on January 1, 2021

While I am excited to leave the Christmas tree and decorations up for another week, I don’t think our cats are. But maybe. The tree is in the spot that their cat tower normally resides, but it is on a table so that they can still have access to the spot where the sun shines. Here is Teagan and Nessa for the first Friday Photo of 2021.

Happy New Year!

Two Pretty Girls In One Shot

Posted by terrepruitt on November 20, 2020

I have never seen this before. I thought it was unusual and cute. Nessa often sits on the lower portion. It is a great sun spot. I have never seen Teagan sit on the shelf above. I am not sure, but I think it was Teagan wanting to be close to be able to take advantage once Nessa moved because shortly after this was taken Teagan was on the lower portion in the sun and Nessa was a little put out.

Here are my beautiful girls to today’s Friday Photo!

No Green Eyes Here

Posted by terrepruitt on November 13, 2020

Even though I do have a ton of photos I could post, I still feel like I could benefit from getting out of the house to maybe take some other photos. 🙂 For now . . . here is another one of Nessa for today’s Friday Photo. There is an entire “series” of these I could post.  Usually I like to show her green eyes, but this is too cute!
