A Little Bit of Belly

Melly was showing off her delectable belly floof the other day, but unfortunately she rolled partially over before I could get the camera. Even a partial belly shot is pretty cute, though.

Naturally, I had to pet the belly.

Silly Scarlett

Scarlett was napping adorably so I snuck up on her with the camera. Unfortunately, the flash tipped her off and she kept changing position and blinking.

Eventually she got annoyed. Note the thrashing tail:

Silly Scarlett

I got out of the shower yesterday morning to find that the sink had been invaded. Fortunately, Scarlett held her position long enough for me to grab my cell and snap some pictures. I love her sweet little face.

In which Melly is irked

"You cleaned all the fur off my usual corner of the couch and fluffed the cushion.
How dare you! 
I shall start my destructive efforts over again on a different cushion.

In which Geoff is accosted

Accosted is his word, mind you; I would use words like snuggled or loved. Geoff is a little bit dramatic sometimes.

Anyway, Geoff was laying on the couch when he was joined by Scarlett. Then, Melly hopped up onto his legs and made herself at home. 

"You were right, Scarlett. The big human does make a good couch."

"Thanks, Melly. I don't have the coordination to manage a high-five, so let's bonk noses instead."

Melly Sounds Off

"I notice that you have put sticky tape on the part of the stereo that gets warm so that I can't sit there and toast my derriere.
That was awfully inconsiderate, don't you think?"

The Kitties' New Accessories

Over the weekend, Geoff and I went to the Olympic Peninsula, which is famous for its lavender. It's not in season now, but you can still find lavender everything in the local stores. You can even find lavender-filled pet neckerchiefs:

It says on the label, "Reversible stylish patterns for day and evening wear." 

I couldn't resist.

Here are the cats, modeling their snazzy new garb:

Aside from the adorable factor, the best part is that the cats are now walking lavender sachets! They smell delightful.

In which Melly is naughty

"Oh, hi. Don't mind me. I just pushed your hoodie from the chair onto the table and then sat on it. 
So, really, you should appreciate the fact that I'm not on the table."

Scarlett attempts to enjoy the trampoline

"Well, this is a fun spot. Oddly bouncy."

"Oh dear. The Tuxie of Doom approaches."

[Pouncing, hissing, growling]

"Hrmph. Now I have to get comfy again."

In which Melly stakes her claim

"I notice this box is from Chewy, purveyor of delicious victuals for we feline types. 
That means this box is mine."

"I don't want you to forget that it's my box, so I'm just going to lay here until you unpack it. 
At which point I shall lay in the box and wait for you to serve its contents to me."

Beautiful Scarlett

I got right up in Scarlett's face with the camera to take these pictures, but she didn't seem to mind as much as she usually does. Maybe Melly has been giving her tips on how to be a good kitty model.

Melly and the Heater

Scarlett is usually the one glued to the heater, pressed up against it so closely that it's a wonder she doesn't catch herself on fire. Melly has lately been spending a lot of time with the heater, although she keeps a more respectful distance.

Melly and the Trampoline

Since I sit all day for work, my doctor recommended I get a small trampoline for exercise and to stimulate my lymph system.  I have been keeping it in the living room, and the cats have been fascinated by it, Melly especially. She particularly enjoys playing with the silver elastic fabric around the edge.

Scarlett Being Scarlett

I didn't have any pictures for today's post, but while I was on the computer, Scarlett jumped into my lap. She was being her usual sweet self, so I switched on the webcam and recorded her.
