Nan's picture of bird houses hanging from the overhang at her parents' house inspired me to take a picture of the bird house i've got hanging from my very similar overhang...it was a large gourd that was hollowed out and made into a bird house resembling...hmmm...resembling a kitty! I usually have at least one family of wrens there each year (as you can see from the "white wash" on the bricks).
I've been doing some much needed house straightening stuff, also sending out get well cards to the three (!) friends who are all having surgery this week. Meanwhile the cats are engaged in their usual occupations:
Fuzzy and Louie snuggling on the couch. I had a chance to watch Louie's technique but couldn't take too many pictures because he might stop and hop down from the couch. It appears that step one is to hop up and lick Fuzzy very thoroughly...sometimes this works to dislodge the purrson being licked. This time Fuzzy kept sleeping. Next Louie hopped up and turned himself around and around and around, trying to fit into the space on the couch (and maybe hoping his trompling would disrupt Fuzzy!). At last he got more or less comfortable, resting his head on Fuzzy's rump.
