Another Instagram update! This batch is from April – May as we settled into our new apartment and I started my job. Time flies!
Cora and Tali are expert cat nappers. They could be professional nappers.
This weekend I started on the August block of the Once Upon a Time sampler. I was surrounded by cats when I took this pic…
But within a couple more moments, Tali moved over for more snuggles. Cora must have been in a good mood (or just sleepy) because she tolerated the snuggling and even moved in closer.
It’s pretty rare that the two of them nap together, so it was obviously worth snapping a few more pics. I just can’t help it, I had to document the historic moment.
Here’s a blast from the past… I dug up this video clip from deep in my drafts folder… and I have no idea why it was sitting there all by its lonesome!
I wrote this in 2012 when we were still in San Francisco:
Cora has mellowed quite a bit over the past couple years, but she’s not always very affectionate. She doesn’t like a lot of touching, and she’s only recently (within the past couple months) started purring. She rarely starts kneading and preparing to nap beside us, so… that’s why I felt it was worthy of video. Yep, I’m that kind of cat lady.
She tenses up in the first few seconds because Tali comes into the room. Don’t worry, Tali gets a cameo!
I love how big Cora’s paws get when she flexes her nails! I think it’s so cute!
And here’s Tali getting cozy and kneady, too.
The cats had a pretty lazy weekend. While my parents visited and the humans visited the farmer’s market, browsed antiques at The Factory, hiked around Radnor Lake, and listened to music at Third and Lindsley, the cats mostly sat around.
In exciting cat news, Tali has a new bed:
And Cora likes to watch us leave for work from the window each morning.
There wasn’t much time for taking pictures of the cats, but I have plenty to share of our weekend adventures… coming tomorrow!
I’m at the beach for a few blissful days, so blogging lite will commence this week. Here’s another batch on Instagram pics – I’m finally catching up, bit by bit! I was mostly unpacked by the time the cats joined us in March, so we all settled into our new routine together.
Nothing new to report on the cat front, so here’s another batch of Instagram pics! These go back a few months to our move, when we shipped the cats by airplane to MS and brought them to our new home a couple weeks later. It’s crazy how time flies!
We had a nice lazy weekend… the humans kept themselves busy with fun errands to a variety of stores… the farmers market, antique store, book store, grocery store, and a healthy dose of cleaning and laundry.
The cats… lounged.
On the window sill.
On the couch in the living room.
On the bed (or in the laundry basket).
In the guest room.
On the window sill again.
