I was telling Kathy (Trekcapri) about how Maria has claimed an empty basket on my desk as one of her places to snooze. Kathy is seriously thinking about adopting a kitten or two after she returns from Spain this fall, so I think I need to keep posting cute photos for her! I'm really looking forward to reading all about her trip and about her kitten(s) when she gets them.
And if you want to read a very fun and informative Venice Trip Report, check out Kathy's report from her trip last year - "Venice Re-Discovered." Great job, Kathy (and the photos are wonderful too).
So when I first got Maria the kitten, she had blue eyes. I've since learned that many kittens start with blue eyes that later change colors, like hers have.
More cat photos below...
Another thing I've learned is how challenging pet photography is. Not only is it hard to catch the kitten being still, it's hard to keep their eyes from looking all weird. I've been taking A LOT of photos and only a few have come out okay.
Okay, I'm getting ready to show you some very sweet photos of the girls grooming each other. But I have to say that it's not all sweetness and light around the house - there's LOTS of chasing and play-fighting and knocking things over happening too! But it's very heart-warming to see LuLu grooming the kitten:
And here's a couple of Maria grooming LuLu. I love the way she wraps her paws around LuLu's neck.
And here's a couple more of Maria in the basket:
So we are all in a state of hurricane prep here in NC. The governor got on TV last night and told us not only to get ready for Hanna, but keep an eye on Ike and Josephine too. Right now, the forecast for Hanna doesn't look too bad. But anyway, I went to the store and along with the usual supplies (batteries and water and non-perishable food), I bought a bunch of kitty litter. Don't want to run out of that! Today after work, I need to go get some cash (in case the ATMs don't work) and fill up the car with gas (I learned the hard way after a previous storm, it can be hard to find a gas station with power). But I'm hoping that Hanna won't be too bad.
