Dark Magic

Also called Procrastination.

Darkie is a beautiful cat. With his eyes photographing yellow that way, he looks like he's in a Halloween advertisement. How do you get the image simultaneously on the screen like that? Did you just store it and retrieve it while he was still in that position?

Seeing him lounging on your paperwork is so classic. After having raised a cat for many years myself, I'm pretty sure their favorite place to relax is on top of the paperwork of the humans they reside with -- especially at the moment they see us reading it or writing on it.

I think it's their way of reminding us not to forget about them -- to focus our attention upon them, instead of on inanimate objects. I don't know how cats ever got a reputation for being aloof -- they seem to love lots of attention.

They just sorta put themselves where they want and that's that! So I did a photo shoot.

Holy jebus. I know you are in Hawaii so that can't be my boy Alex, but those golden eyes and that fine dark chocolate fur are exactly the same.

Alex is 15 pounds of pure loving deviltry, and he takes the same "mine, all mine" position on the granite top of the portable island we recently put in the kitchen. I don't think we've been able to actually use it for its intended purpose once yet!

Darkie is a hefty boy at thirteen pounds. He only seems able to get to the lower shelf of the kitchen butcher block island directly above his food bowl on the floor below. Protecting it from intruders I think.
