This word sparked the thought of grade school kids on field trips: Everyone has a buddy, and entire classrooms were linked hand-to-hand, as they weaved down a street or through a museum. Years ago, The Mother Kitty and her kittens took in some culture one afternoon, just like us humans do. She's cool like that.

Simon got all the mud off of his paws, but he's still walking. Some may say he's adrift (or a drift), but he walks with purpose. Even if sometimes only he knows the destination.

Mom loves these mornings.

Most mornings, after I'm fully awake and out of bed, Lily waits for me to come out of the bedroom. Unlike normal cats, she's not waiting in the kitchen because she's hungry. Instead, she is focused on today's chases.

Lily may be one of the prettiest cats, but she's not the most graceful. For this week, I could have chosen to depict the day she slipped off her cat climber and fell more than 5 feet to the hardwood floor. Or, I could have picked one of the many times she did summersaults and bellyflops in an effort to grab one of her toys. Instead, I selected the time she was so content with her purring and rolling that she forgot the size of the sofa and went too far. Here, she lands on her feet. The claw marks on my couch lean toward a different story. I won't tell if you won't.
