I love this kitty! You can see all of Nora’s video on YouTube or visit her site.

Whenever I need a lift, I’m sure to wander over to icanhascheezburger for some fun with LOL cats. How can you resist them?

This picture illustrates exactly why I don’t dress up Sumi for the holidays. I’m certain she would kill me in my sleep as punishment.

This is cherry blossom tree (American not Japanese) in my front yard which began to bloom yesterday. It’s been a great spring; cold and wet but lasting. Yesterday it was 76 degrees but today it’s 55 degrees. This lets the flowers last larger.

Even the cat is glad to be outside.

Ask any cat owner if this isn’t familiar. Got the link from YouTube via the Cute Overload website.

Just when you thought cats hated water


I love my Sumi-e but if I didn’t have her, I’d want one of these. I’m not really into purebred cats but these are really special.

I haven’t made cut-out cookies in years but when I saw the bags and cutters at Target, I couldn’t resist. It took me half the day but they are delicious if a little sloppy looking. Besides, they look a little like Sumi! I’ll be giving these to my co-workers on Tuesday. I can’t be trusted to have these stay too long in my house.

Sunday morning, Sumi-e was chased around the courtyard by the neighbor’s dog. She tried to climb a brick wall to escape to a window sill only to fall into a bush. She finally ran under a parked car and up into the engine area. After many minutes she came out and was limping badly and all of her claws were torn or missing.

We took her to the emergency animal hospital and the attending vet said that no bones were broken but she probably sprained the knee joint or, at worst, torn the ligament. We were given pain meds for 5 days and told to watch her for 3 days and if there was no improvement to take her to her usual doctor for a further exam.

Today, she’s markedly better and we think it’s just a sprain – whew!

She been avoiding us for the most part but yesterday she did come out to lay in a strong sunbeam. Weird thing is that she’s lying on the injured leg. Perhaps to protect it?
