Bella stops by the blog for a visit

My friend's cat, Bella, loves the camera.  Fortunately for Bella, her owner is a Visual Presentation Manager who has a good eye for composition and who loves taking photos! 

In the first shot, Bella has found an empty lunchbox :-( but then realized that the lid would make a comfortable resting spot :-)

In the second shot, she has a prime observation perch, curiously looking down to see what her 
owner is doing,

Spike and the new box

The other week a large box containing hubby's mail order hard drive showed up and he put it on the dining room table for just a few minutes before heading back to open it. He came in to find Spike comfortably sitting on the top of the box, surveying his territory from a higher vantage point.

Once Spike moved off the box, hubby quickly opened his new toy (ummm...I piece of valuable computer equipment) and left the empty box and wrappings right where they lay as he headed off to his office.  After hearing some rustling in the background, I came in from the living room to see what was going on and found him curled up in the box, getting ready to settle in for a snooze.

The last shot is the somewhat annoyed look when all that is left on the table is the packaging (box on floor behind him).

Two deaf kitties warming up the coffee table has been many weeks since the last post.  January and February are usually quite busy for me but this year has been a "perfect storm" of cascading deadlines in various areas, an additional workload in the day job that was not expected and a severe lack of sleep trying to fit everything in. At this time of year I work within a small margin of error of time which means there really isn't much flexibility if something unexpected happens. is back to the normal workload..and enough about me..since I know those who come to visit the blog are more interested in the kitties that have the starring roles!

The two photos above are taken two months apart - the first was just a week ago and the second was back in January.  I was so surprised to see Spike and Sadie sitting side by side in relative peace on the coffee table so I yelled to hubby to take a photo.  Usually when these two are side by side either Spike is tapping Sadie on her backside with his front paw or Sadie is turning around with a loud hiss when she feels Spike's hot breath behind her.  

Two months pass...and the scene is repeated. Spike still holds the position at the north end of the table and Sadie is within breathing distance....but nary a hiss or any sign of discontent. I realize that in many other cat households it isn't unusual to actually see cats curled up in close proximity..but here it is a rare event so we have to make sure we get a photo!
