Contained (January 9, 2009)

I told The Kitties a secret over the weekend. They are containing themselves surprisingly well so far.

Resolute (January 1, 2009)
(Illustration Friday: January 2, 2009)

With the new year, The Kitties have resolved to conquer The Ribbon. (They make the same resolution every year, of course, but don't discourage them!)


Clandestine (December 26, 2008)

My sister moved into a new condo, in which Comet and the other kitties are fascinated with a particular downstairs closet. We can only guess what clandestine plans they have been making in there. Should we be worried?


Voices (December 19, 2008)

As you know, The Kitties love to sing! While on vacation, they were nonstop with Christmas songs. They sounded pretty good--with only a couple of mix-ups.


Rambunctious (December 12, 2008)

Norman is named Norman for a reason: he was one rambunctious kitten! As a grown-up, you may still catch a glimpse of that PsychoKitty inside. It leaps out every once in a while to keep us on our toes.


Similar (December 5, 2008)

Beneath a sunny window, all kitties have similar ideas....

B.J. (1999?-November 24, 2008)

B.J. (1999?- November 24, 2008)

Sadly, B.J. (Bob, Jr.), passed away in November after his brave battle with cancer. Originally found in Cincinnati amid his worldwide travels, B.J. lived among several other alley cats in the area until he met my sister. The third cat to be welcomed into her family, B.J. decided to move indoors and live out the rest of his days with them in Columbus. B.J. was a large bear of a cat. While I didn't see him as often as the other kitties, it was clear that he loved to chat and play with anyone willing. I have lasting memories of being greeted by his loud hellos and enjoying his long conversations. The group will be a bit quieter and little less bright now, but I'll keep him going here. So long, beloved B.J.! We miss you!
