Cat love

This is my fur baby. Her name is Callie and she absolutely loves to be scratched. She is not one to sit on your lap but she is very affectionate. I love my Callie-cat.

Pressed up against my leg enjoying her favorite activity
Yup, loves to be scratched
Such a hard life – I wish I were a cat (well, at least a cat who gets spoiled as this one does)

She’s a strange animal: feline feast

Callie has a personality all her own. She’s quite an individual! My daughter took these photos out on the balcony (where Callie likes to hunt spiders and anything else that moves). She has an appetite for spider’s webs. We call it candy floss for cats (well for this one anyway). So, I thought I’d share them, and hopefully bring a bit of joy. I hope they make you smile and/or laugh out loud.

“What is this?”
“oh boy, is that what I think it is?”
“Hmmm let me have a taste . . .”
“Yum, yum, yum”
“I will bite it! Ooooh so fresh!”

Nothing like a snack of silky web in the morning!

Bewitched by Callie-cat

Ready to play? Callie is pretty much always ready…

Here it comes: another Callie tale. Yes, another little story about life with Callie-cat. First let me tell you about one of her most favorite games. It involves me chasing her around the house calling out, “I’m gonna get you”. She initiates this game first of all by a wild race through the house bounding over furniture at break-neck speed. It’s also a sort of hide and seek kind of thing because she hides and waits for me to find her. Once I do, I say, “I see you”, and she’s off and running again. I call it the chase me game. Without fail she wants to play this the minute I get home from work and mostly I try to humour her by going along with her mad cap antics. But some days I arrive home totally exhausted and cannot stay on my feet another moment. That’s okay – Callie has her back up plan for attention: she leaps up onto my bed as soon as I enter my bedroom to change into comfy clothes. She meows and bids me come lay down with her. (At least that’s how it seems to me). Once I lay on the bed with her, she immediately rolls over on her back for another favorite activity: belly scratches. It is always a mystery to me how much better this little fur baby can make me feel, especially if my day has not gone all that well. I get how the term “fur baby” was coined. Callie is very much like a human toddler and has me completely enthralled. Perhaps she was a witch’s familiar in a previous life? I say that because it seems I am bewitched. Seriously. But I’m not complaining.

Cats and more cats

“I have studied many philosophers and many cats. The wisdom of cats is infinitely superior.” – Hippolyte Taine –


I have always been a great lover of cats; Cats of all colours and breeds. I find them incredibly interesting as well as entertaining. I agree wholeheartedly with the above quote because I have known many cats, my own and those  of family members. Here are a few of my favourite photos that I have taken over the years celebrating our feline friends.
