Tuesday Time Machine

Just a quick post. Years ago, Mom took some photography classes using "gasp!" black and white film! Q, who came before, was one of her favorite subjects, of course. The assignment was to do a 1 second exposure portrait. So, Mom set up a tripod, set the camera up for auto shoot, picked up Q, squished him for 1 second. She did a couple of shots and then in the dark room, merged her two favorite images.

Mom has been squishing kitties forever, hasn't she!

As for pottery, if anyone is in the Bay Area of California this weekend, and if you feel like meeting Mom in person, please visit her at the Blossom Hill Crafts Annual Spring Sale!

Tuesday Tidings

Hear ye! Hear ye! I, 9, the most magnificent, have an announcement.

Mom is very busy these days. She has a pottery sale at the end of this month and she seems to be suffering from an overabundance of creativity. She is sketching and coloring and being all artsy fartsy. She does take a break on occasion to give us lots of love (involving far too many squishes!), but, it is far from enough.

So, she will be taking a mini-blogcation until after the sale. Please forgive her. We will be sure to present her with many photo opportunities by being utterly adorable and sweet and cute, but who knows if she will pick up the camera. Sigh...

Until May, dear friends!

Squishes on a Saturday

The cool temperature in our condo means both Blankies of Doom are in full use. Mom lies under them and then we lie on top of Mom. Unfortunately, it means that there are many opportunities for squishing. Sigh...

9 gets squished too.

And kisses... lots of kisses. Poor 9. Heheh...

Unfortunately, after 9 gets squished, his dander is up and he attacks me. Mom does break it up, but it gets annoying. Oh well... at least we get cuddles too.

Happy Saturday all!

Princess Chani

Princess Chani wishes you all will have a lovely weekend. Although the weather is warming up and it is bright and sunny, it's still cool in our condo. So, the Pink Blankie of Doom is still getting a lot of use. No complaining from us here.

Friend's foster kittens

Mom went to visit a friend who is fostering kittens. Do you remember the last batch of kittens she visited? Well, those babies got adopted (though Mama kitty succumbed to an illness right after weaning the babies :( ). Now, our friend is fostering two more. Above you see the grey girl.

Here's a portrait. She's very spunky!

Mom held the black cow kitty boy who is much more mellow than his sister. He's so tiny! He fit in Mom's hand and dozed a bit.

Here they are with a feather toy (Ikea kitty tent in the background).

And here they are eating. The girl was quite 'pushy' but the boy made sure to get some of his own too.

No, we won't be getting a new sibling. Mom is worried that 9's personality might change if he's no longer the center of attention. But, she does love to see new babies!
