Friday Instagram Roundup

I'm a bit behind with the roundups, so there are a bunch of pictures this week!

She was just sitting quietly, politely waiting to be noticed.

Diva moment: refusing to look at the camera.

There is nothing out there, but she is So Fascinated.


Sometimes Melly likes to burrow under the covers and make herself a little fort.

Captain Melly Returns

I put Melly in her favorite t-shirt when Anna arrived, because it's just too funny not to share. Melly dutifully endured our laughter for a few minutes before going off to the bedroom to sulk.

Later, I lay down on the bed to read, and Melly promptly put herself between me and the book. She refused to move until I took her t-shirt off.

An interrupted nap, animated

As is my wont, I stuck the camera in Melly's face while she was napping and began snapping pictures. When I looked at them later, it was clear that they had to be made into a gif. So, without further ado, I bring you...

And here are the separate photos, if you're curious:

Maker of Mischief

"Hmm, this wire looks delicious!"

"Oh, did you think I was looking at wires to chew?
I wasn't even looking in that direction."

[Whistles casually]

"See, I'm the picture of innocence."

Updates, and Melly's New Friend

Things have been a bit crazy around these parts recently. First there was the breakup, which was about as unpleasant as you'd expect. (Thank you all so much for your kind comments on Facebook. I am so grateful.) Then, there was my coping mechanism of organizing every closet, drawer, and cupboard in my apartment, eating all the chocolate I could lay hands on, and watching Under the Tuscan Sun repeatedly. 

Fortunately, I soon had a distraction. My cousin Anna has been traveling around working on organic farms, and she found her way up to Tacoma a couple weeks ago. She stayed with me for a few days before heading off to another farm, and Melly was thrilled to pieces to make a new friend. Anna will be staying around Washington for a while, so hopefully she'll have another opportunity to lavish Melly with attention. And I'm rather enjoying having another family member nearby (I have an aunt and uncle in Seattle; the rest of the family is spread out east of the Rockies.)

And then I traveled to Houston for my sister's college graduation this weekend. 


So, now you're up to speed. Unfortunately, I had to delete some cat photos off my camera to make room for more graduation photos, but I do have some phone pictures of the last week or so that I can share.  Here are a few of Melly and her buddy Anna:

Have I mentioned that Melly has a thing for sniffing armpits? It's odd.

All together now: awwwwww.

Friday Instagram Roundup

Nothing like a death glare from a 12lb ball of floof.

The many morning faces of Melly.

Avoiding Monday

"If I stay asleep, it's not Monday.
Right? Right??"

Friday Instagram Roundup

Such a little show-off.

So ladylike.

Um, hi there.

This is the face of a hungry cat.
