It was a hot one yesterday – they kind of weather that prompts people to say “wow is it hot” every 45 minutes or so. We took advantage of the newly acquired cots from our car camping rig to sleep out on the deck last night, as it stayed warm inside the house for quite […]Read more "Cat Day Afternoon"
As seen in the shadow cast from our neighbor’s satellite dish on the side of our house. The kitty stares accusingly. The light was weirdly thin and metallic during the eclipse. The trusty Lumix picked up an image of the eclipse in the lens flare.Read more "Eclipse light"
The Mellowcat team has been on the road for a week or so, touring the Four Corners region. We spotted only three free-roaming cats during this time; one was at the Case de Fruta complex, and we had just barely started the trip at that point so it hardly even counts. And we saw a […]Read more "When the cat’s away"
Hey, what’s with all the bird-related information? I thought this was supposed to be a cat blog. The kitty decided it would be for the best to convert the thriving catmint plants into a cat sofa bed. While I’m here, I’ll sneak in a few pictures from the front yard. Looking good out there. Here […]Read more "Return to Normalcy"
See what I mean by that:Read more "Owls are flying cats"
Here’s a tip for the runners out there – if you’d prefer that your mid afternoon run on Sunday features fewer cars on the neighborhood streets, then I suggest starting at kickoff time on Superbowl Sunday. I’m talking ghost town. Except for the pizza delivery guys. Don’t worry about missing any of the action – […]Read more "super sunday"

What is especially helpful is that the kitty saunters in to the den to show me how to do the stretching right. Now, open carpet is at a premium in […]Read more "coach cat"
I see that The Letter went out for a moonlight run and didn’t tell me. As compensation, I will steal one of his pictures to decorate my blog. I did take advantage of the full moon to plant some crops – a half dozen spinach starts went in just as the moon was rising. The […]Read more "full moon fever"
I stopped by Wegman’s this morning to get some greenery for the mantle, and the shop cat Convict was there to assist me with my selections. He was going to town on one of the wreaths; it had round, red objects attached to it, and he was pulling them off and batting them around. My […]Read more "’tis the season"
Every once in a while you’ll see the cat tuning in to some random song going by on the Pandora; this evening it happened to be Susan Tedeschi’s version of “Don’t Think Twice (It’s All Right)”. This song includes many of the sonic components favored by the cat: a lady singer, clever guitar work, and […]Read more "today’s sounds"
