I see that now. It worked last night when I did the preview/post, and now it doesn't. Sigh.

Here we go again - this is our oldest - she was a rescue that was almost feral when we got her. She hangs around with us when it is just the two of us - if we have any company over then she runs and hides.


This is our bonus cat. We had originally intended to get her brother (below), and when we went there to pick him up, the adoption people said "he has a sister, and we don't want to break them up". So we came home with 2 that day. Apparently this is a pretty common trick. She has the sweetest personality, and is what I would call a "heat-seeking cat".



And this is George. A bit neurotic, with too much appetite for food than is appropriate for his body. So we have to restrict his food intake a bit to keep him from becoming a blimp cat, and that makes him even more neurotic.

It's safe, though I admit in this pic it does look it could potentially get all explody.. Actually very cool where it is though usually I store it in the corner of the room. I've found there's nothing quite like MAPP gas for easily getting a fire going. That and sweating pipes of course...

Wadsworth is, in fact, a Maine Coon. He’s named after Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, the Maine poet. He chases and tries to beat up on our Cairn Terrier - they’re about the same size

Having to do battle with the vacuum cleaner all afternoon (guests coming tomorrow) is very tiring. Usually I don't get a chance at a shot like this:

Saw this button in my daughter's car today. For portability and ease of transport, perhaps? Haven't tried it …
