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!

Don’t you think it is funny when pets do things different than normal?

Another Photo Of A Cat In A Box

Posted by terrepruitt on October 23, 2020

This is Teagan in a box.  Originally this box was slated for another purpose, but Nessa took it over.  It was primarily her box for a while, but then Teagan started using it.  They have several boxes around the house that they share.  Teagan for a Friday Photo.

Hawk On The Bath

I took the pictures and videos with the intent of posting about it. Well, three years later here ya go. I noticed him then watched him for about 10 minutes. It was odd. Hawks are very big birds and the funny thing is this is a small hawk. This guy had upset the blue jays. You can hear them in the videos squawking. It took our cats a bit to notice. I believe when I wasn’t recording the bird I was talking to my cats trying to get them to notice. I didn’t want to get up because I didn’t want to disturb the bird. The birdbath is not that far away and often times we frighten birds off of it by moving to get a better look. I didn’t want to move. I was in awe.

The pictures and the videos are not great. I was using my iPhone 5. But, to me, they are still cool. I have two videos of Teagan that me laugh because they remind me that she was walking toward the window then saw the bird and froze. I have never seen her so still. She was in midstride and STOPPED, her head low, and she just froze with only her tail moving back and forth. She was like that for at least 5 mins. I didn’t post them because I was laughing and talking while filming and the best I can figure is I had my fingers over the mic and then I moved them and the sound is too inconsistent and annoying. Plus it is just a recording of a cat standing completely still, I do pan over to the bird who seems to be watching the cat, but only the mom (or dad) wants to watch a (their) cat standing still for a minute and a half.

The hawk doesn’t do anything, but move his head, drink some water, and fluffy up a bit. I just wanted to say that so you weren’t disappointed if you watch the videos. And . . . I am not best videographer and I can bet you that I was trying to move while not moving a lot to get closer so they are not the smoothest of recordings. They, along with the pictures are just to document that THERE WAS A HAWK IN OUR YARD!

I believe this is a Cooper’s hawk. As he was large, but not very large.

It was cool. This is the second time I’ve seen a hawk in our yard.

Green-Eyed Girl

Posted by terrepruitt on August 28, 2020

This one hates the camera . . . especially when I have it up in her face like that. It probably wouldn’t surprise you that I took about 20 picture and most of them were blurry and her trying to move away from me. Poor girl. I really wanted to get her gorgeous eyes and share them with you for today’s Friday Photo.

August 2020 Nessa And Teagan

Posted by terrepruitt on August 21, 2020

Just a sweet pictures of my girls. We have been pretty hot here, the temps are high and the air quality is low. We keep the windows shut. This was a hot evening.

Nessa is in the box and Teagan is next to her for this Friday Photo.

Nessa In The Ripple Rug

Posted by terrepruitt on July 31, 2020

Such a silly kitty. She had just finished attacking her sister, she had dived into the hole and crouched there waiting for Teagan to come. Teagan ran up and swatted and Nessa popped her head out for the attack. They really love their Ripple Rug. I thought I would share for today’s Friday Photo.

So which do you prefer “dived” or “dove”?  (I went back and forth!)

Cats’ Ripple Rug Play

Posted by terrepruitt on June 3, 2020

I wanted to add these videos to my Ripple Rug post, but I was having trouble signing into YouTube.  So I am making them a separate post all their own.

This first video is just Nessa seeing the Ripple Rug for the first time.  It is a “long” (1:26) video as she just walks around it.  Eventually she gets in (about :55).  It is fun to watch pets with a new toy (thing).  This is also when my husband was working in the dining area so if you have the volume up (not recommended) you will hear loud clacking.   He types FAST and he was using a noisy keyboard.

The next video is quick.  Just a quick look at the two girls and the rug.

The last video is of Nessa’s current FAVORITE game.  We spend a lot of time doing this.  She loves to attack the stick.

Well, as I said, I wanted these to be a part of the Ripple Rug post, but they didn’t make it.  And now they have given me something to post.  It is sometimes difficult to come up with things that are a step away from all that is going on.  There is so much going on and so many things (articles, videos, posts, tweets, etc.) already out there about what is going on, I don’t feel I need to add to it.  I honestly get overwhelmed and need to step away.  And I need distractions, if you do too, here you go.

Thank you for being here.

Teagan Transfixed

Posted by terrepruitt on February 7, 2020

This was so fascinating – to me – because she sat like that – unmoving for at least 5 minutes. She was as still as a statue. And I couldn’t see what she was looking at. Although, if you know a cat you may have experienced the phenomenon where THEY see SOMETHING, but you don’t.

I love their (cats’) concentration and the way they can sit so still. Of course, I have a whole series of these, I just kept taking them as she sat stock-still.

Teagan is my Friday Photo today.
