Placeholder Cats

I have various sets of photos edited to put in posts and keep forgetting the actual posting part.  As it’s quite late and I need to clean litterboxes before I go to bed, they’ll have to continue to wait, but here are a few standalone cat pics so I don’t entirely forget how to do this.

Return of the Catio

It’s a really beautiful day today, and spouse pried open the human-sized door to the catio. (It’s been sticking since winter.) Instant swarm of cats who had apparently never figured out the cat-sized door that’s been there since fall.

I do a few of them an injustice; Praline, Rhombus, and Quot had all gone out a few times. But they might not have realized how much the weather had changed.

Find The Moth

Quot was intently tracking a moth when it flew to the side and he lost sight of it.

I know it went in this direction.
find-the-moth-2-2017-01-20-142621
Maybe over here?

You’d think all these mirrors would help, but they don’t.
find-the-moth-4-2017-01-20-142656
This smells interesting, but not at all mothlike.
find-the-moth-5-2017-01-20-142707
Wow, I’m handsome.  Hello, me!
find-the-moth-6-2017-01-20-142729
Maybe it went back this way.
find-the-moth-7-2017-01-20-142735
When all else fails, go back to the beginning and start over.
find-the-moth-8-2017-01-20-143019
Phooey.  This just isn’t working.  I give up.
find-the-moth-9-2017-01-20-143052
But I’m SURE it went that way…

He never did find it. Did you?

Count the Cats – Expanded Edition

I hope you already did your counting, because I can’t help but spoil it with my delight at achieving this: I got ALL the cats in one photo!  Lifetime achievement unlocked!

(My joy was somewhat inhibited by the horrid “update” to Photos that happened in the last couple of days, removing most of the useful features and replacing them with crummy filters, but I’m still happy about it.)

As you might imagine, treats were involved.
