"I went into my little house for a break, yet here you are, shoving a camera in my face. 
Buzz off, lady."

I'm disappointed at how blurry these photos turned out. Scarlett was being so cute and purry!

Close, Closer, Closest

Sometimes I like to see how close Melly will let me get with the camera. The answer is... very. She didn't so much as twitch a whisker in the taking of these photos.

Sister Time

My sister came for 4th of July weekend and spent a substantial portion of her time here snuggling Melly. Melly, of course, was thrilled to have so much attention from her favorite person.

Happy Independence Day!

Happy Independence Day to all in the USA!

And, as I have no patriotic kitty pictures, I bring you the usual Friday Instagram roundup:

Ridiculous fuzzball.

It's exhausting being so cute.

Cat Dreams

As I'm typing this, Melly is out cold and belly-up at the foot of my bed. At odd intervals, she is squirming, kicking, and violently thrashing her tail. I'm no expert on the subject, but I've never seen a cat as active in her sleep as Melly; she routinely engages in what appears to be a sort of somnolent feline karate. I wish I could provide video, but getting up to retrieve my phone or camera would disturb our fuzzy little martial artist.

Do your cats do this? What do you suppose they dream about?

Melly Sounds Off

"Mom, I am not pleased that you have put us on a diet.
Scarlett is the piggy, not me."

"Observe my trim silhouette. Clearly I do not need to diet."
