Susie, Queen of the Backyard

I just think Sue looks very regal here. It’s amazing how easy it is to improve pictures with Picasa. Just cropping is always a big help. Posted by Picasa


Oh Wicked Zoot!

Got to sleep at an indecent hour this morning for undisclosed reasons. Sometime around five AM I was jerked awake by the unmistakeable sound of a cat coughing up a bellyful of something nasty. This not infrequent occurence usually provokes a groan, a turn, and a new dream. However, on this morning, I vaulted from unconsciousness to full blown terror as I perceived that the vomiting noises were eminating from a spot approximately six inches to my right, on the bed. My brain decided that opening my eyes was a lower priority than getting the offender as far away from me as possible. My franctic kicking and pushing dislodged the perpetrator from her perch near my right armpit; she terminated her desecration of the hallway floor shortly thereafter. H reassured me that she had only puked a little on her side so I did my best to put the nightmare out of my head and go back to sleep.

Two minutes later I hear Sue-dog, cunning burgler that she is, tiptoeing out of her cage and onto the trail of the puker. Tick tick tick: her claws; Slurp slurp slurp: her tongue; Shuddering and smothering his head with a pillow: me.

The final, most disgusting twist didn’t raise it’s head until later that morning. I will forgoe the details as, starting now, I plan to pretend it never happened.

When I got my camera phone home for the first time, I tested it out with some snaps around the house. This was the first shot I took with it—came out surprisingly well. That bone is the only toy she had for this long without killing it. Posted by Picasa
