|Hmm - what shall we do in this lovely sun-puddle?|
May I share? Looks like you have the whole thing!
|Hey you - Manitou - wanna play?|
|Let him think on that for a bit....|
|I see some tempting toes!|
|Come on - shake a paw!!|
I'll roll over for ya....
Alone in my sun-puddle.
Yes! Mission accomplished :)

|Our Zena loves the outdoors,|
despite her history of being a street cat.
So we put a nice warm kitty hut on the porch,
Shelter from the nasty wind....
|But what's that?|
The door opening?
|OK then, enough fresh air,|
time for snacks and a warm lap!
|Where do the humans sit?|
|Ginja Ninja snuggles with spotty,|
in a rare moment of calm.
|And speaking of warmth,|
here is the spicy Merengue,
a cybister type of Amaryllis - an unusual and beautiful form.

|Welcome to my world!|
|Can you spot the festive visitors?|
|Santa makes himself comfy on my desk...|
|Green glass kitty hangs around all year |
- she matches the lamp!
|She insisted on being included,|
as this is Cat Whisperer's blog after all!
|And of course, the little tree, |
bedecked with ornaments new and old...
|Vintage publications grace the table|
on which the tree sits...
Representing Britain, The Illustrated London News...
|And of course, French Canada - this is Quebec after all!|
|There is something so lovely about vintage decorations.|
|Over at the main library,|
my colleagues got busy with a new twist
on a Christmas tree,
|The tree is complemented by a paper star,|
fashioned from discarded magazines,
a trick learned from YouTube of course!

|What a sweetie huh?|
|We have a feeling that this little guy was never socialized by mummy - so sad - God knows what these little ones have gone through by the time they find "sanctuary".|
For the time being he is being isolated at night, due to his tendency to ambush and "play" a little too roughly, and a little too long.
Zena too must be isolated, due to her "hunting" our poor gentle Manitou - such a mystery, and very difficult when one has few rooms and we have the others to accommodate as well.
It was bound to happen one, that integration would not be an easy thing. For well over 25 years we have been lucky, and mostly everyone has learned to get along - most of the time.
Oh well - one day, and night, at a time.
(Btw, apologies to Willowhousechronicles for not approving her comments before now.)
|Meanwhile, little LV has grown up, and lost most of her kittenish ways, which is a bit sad, but her size has not increased by much - still very small, and kitten-sized.|
Such an adorable little girl.
