Friday Instagram Roundup

So far, home ownership has turned out to be all-consuming. (This may be because the home in question is getting gutted and renovated in less than a month. Egads.) My sporadic posting is likely to become even more sporadic until the end of the year, but I'll try to update you all periodically!

It's hard to tell where the bed ends and the cat begins.

Just chillin' on the edge of the bed.

Big News!

I bought a house! It needs some work so it'll be a while before we move, but I've started packing now, before things get too crazy.

Melly is enjoying the packing process.

Beautiful Scarlett

"Here I sit, dramatically lit and pensive.
You may photograph me."

"Ok, now pet me!"

Linus and the Leash

Recently, inspired by this video, Sierra decided to try putting a leash on Linus. I had a couple of harnesses from previous attempts to walk Scarlett and Melly, so I gave them to her to try on Linus. Surprisingly, he didn't object!

Melly and the Laundry

Melly loves laundry day. She burrows in the piles of warm clothes and purrs her fuzzy little head off. Can you spot her in these pictures?

Friday Instagram Roundup

"Ok, I'm in the box. Now what?"

Life goal: learn to nap like a cat.

Look who I found on my window!

Window Kitties

Like most cats, Scarlett and Melly spend quite a bit of time looking out the window. When I'm outside my building, I often see them perched on the sills. They don't usually seem all that interested in me, preferring to focus on the dogs and outdoor cats passing by.

Friday Instagram Roundup

We're now all caught up on Instagram photos!

Melanie Hamilton Wilkes, bringing ridiculousness to a whole new level since 2010.

12th Kitty returns

...and promptly starts sulking.

(Note: this picture and the three below were taken within about 3 hours of each other.)

The chair is equally enjoyable upside down, apparently.

Ok, this is just ridiculous.

I promise to stop taking pictures of my cat. Eventually.

Ruel & the Kitties

Ruel and I work very different schedules, so he often ends up hanging out at my apartment by himself with the cats. Sometimes, he sends me updates. He texted these pictures to me the other day; the captions are his.

"I knew she was a demon cat!"

"'Hi mom, I'm bored...'"

"'I don't understand why everyone hates the close seats in the movie theater...'"

Catch-up Instagram Roundup, Part 4

My view right now.

A paper bag never stays empty for long around here.

The surprising proximity is due to the cats' exhaustion from mounting a vigorous defense of the apartment against a tiny tortie cat on the sidewalk outside. Their main strategy involved meowing loudly.

Morning snuggles with Melly.

Catch-up Instagram Roundup, Part 3

Early morning cat attack.

People and creatures are sleepy at chez Natalie.

My view right now.

There are two adorable videos of Scarlett drinking a glass of Lactaid milk on Instagram, but I can't figure out how to put them into Blogger. If you're interested, you can watch them here and here.

Catch-up Instagram Roundup, Part 2

It's ok, I can just squeeze between them. Sigh.

I have interrupted nap time.
