Today's picture/chowin' down

Raya and Soot at the cat chow bowl (which says, 'chat' - French for cat).


  1. Aww, poor little starving things. I can see they rarely see a full bowl.

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Glad you enjoyed the family connections between all our great British actors!
    I've been reading back through your blog - loving your book reviews and recipes.
    We visited the USA in 2004 for our silver wedding anniversary - stayed in Washington [and discovered IHOP] and then went on to Boston and finally Vermont. We LOVED New England - and one day I hope to return!
    Blessings- angela x

  3. Your comment made me smile, Joyce!
    Angela, Thank you for your kind words. What a nice trip you must have had.

  4. Nan, those kitties look like you are starving them-LOL!!! Soot looks just like a cat my oldest daughter had when she in college (Beverly, Mass). Her name is Bella and she still has her.

  5. I LOVE your new header pic. Funnily enough I rearranged a bookshelf at home this morning, the one with all 'old' hardbacks, similar to yours.

  6. Sherri, our Sooty is now 15+ and seems to be having a good old age. I worry because he is so skinny, but he eats well, climbs stairs, wrestles with Raya, and enjoys his catnip so I guess he's doing fine.

    Cait, I'd love to see that shelf - might you put a picture on your blog?

  7. Both cats looked beautiful and so well groomed. Lucky animals, I bet they have a cushy life with you.
    My dear cat died last year, I still get terribly sad at times and miss her presence and funny little ways. She was 17, so I was lucky to have her for so long.


  8. Are they usually so round or is it just that they have a lot of fur? :-)

  9. Carole, any thoughts of a kitten, or maybe an older cat? I have a friend who is homebound with Parkinson's and other problems, and her cat is the light of her life.

    Pamela, thanks! They thought they needed more time on the blog. :<)

    Kay, they do have a lot of fur. Raya is quite round, but Sooty has lost a lot of weight as he's gotten older, but as I wrote in my comment to Sherri, he seems to be doing fine.


I am really going to try and respond to your comments as soon as they come in! I'm so grateful for your notes.
Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
