So named because one eye took a long time to open when he was born, Pirate is also affectionately known alternately as Frat Boy or Mike Tyson. He’s a big beefy cat with a tiny little voice, who likes to bite the hands that feed him. A few days after we got him, when still a tiny kitten, he sailed off the upstairs landing and broke his leg. He spent several days at the vet, gnawing off his little cast and getting an extra round of antibiotics. Now that he’s grown up, he’s an excellent lounger, and is entertained for hours by the birds outside. One catbird in particular loves to taunt him at the front window.

Loves cuddling up to shoes. Loves soaking up the sun and casting Batman shadows. Loves perching on a chair arm or windowsill and watching the world pass by. Adores boxes. Loves joining the humans in the bathroom (prefers running water to still). Enjoys heads-butts and cuddling up to his daddy at bedtime.

Posted Plants and Flowersin
This day began with me donning gloves and cleaning the bathroom at work after a young boy spent some time in there, but failed to use the toilet –for any of his needs. Enough said. My next work debacle included several hours spent gathering data on a spreadsheet to supply to our auditors, only to lose the document in the bowels of the computer, never to be seen again. Such is the life of a non-profit executive. Glamorous, it is not.
But speaking of glamour, and on a much happier note, it’s Flowers In The House over at Jane’s. So I headed out to my fading yard after dark, to see what I could collect for an early autumn bouquet to bring to the party. I tucked some sedum, dogwood leaves, caladium and red fountain grass fronds into a tall marbly vase that was a wedding gift.
Felix the Cat stopped by to take a sniff.
More sedum, hydrangea, lavender stalks, a few stragglers from the asters, and some wintercreeper clippings went into a pottery vase that I rescued many years ago from a discard pile outside the ceramics lab at college. I rather like the scorch marks.
Pirate rather likes the flowers!
Be sure to stop on over to Jane’s at SmallButCharming and check out the lovely flowers from around the world!
