I rather like this photo of my husband speaking to Fizz the cat.  But I agree with my son that the picture is blurry.  He maintains that I should use my phone for picture taking.  But the trouble with that I found was that I somehow ended up with short videos.  Modern technology, grr.

9 Years Old – A Birthday Party To Remember April 23, 2018

Filed under: Cats,Family,Fizz — Janet @ 1:09 am

IMG_1414  lining up to form teams – I think this was Team Indecisive -i.e. they couldn’t decide on a name

IMG_1422  lined up ready for the first question in the X-Box Quiz, or was it Minecraft?  I wouldn’t have been an asset to any of the teams!

IMG_1423  looks like someone has broken ranks and is headed for the food – that’s the host kneeling on the table – hmm a bit of chaos developing

IMG_1406  Fizz the Cat knew all the answers

IMG_1424  hmm, are they paying attention to the quizmaster?

And so it went on but I left.  Too chaotic for Grandma.  But I checked this morning and there were no injuries etc and a good time was had by all.  Happy Times.

Slinky Malinki April 2, 2018

2018_04_02_10_05_56.pdf000Years ago in Dublin we had a black cat that we named Slinky Malinki.  Here he is atop a fence and scratching and digging his claws in, just like our current cat Katerina.  Tops of fences are excellent surveillance posts.  That aside, I liked the morning shadow of the cat on the wall behind.  Memories.
