  1. Violet still looks like she’s a kitten at heart, and I suspect she got up to some kind of ruckus right after you put the camera down.

    And doesn’t Penny look happy with her newly shorn coat! Looks like she’s saying “Thanks” from her eyes to her tail…

    Beautiful animals, thanks for sharing them, and thanks for the posting, Lady C. Always grateful for the breath of fresh air in the political miasma.

    God Bless,

  2. Thanks Claudia!

    Most folks here aren’t aware of Penny’s significance for me. My last companion, Peanut passed away in January, 2015 and within a couple weeks, I felt depression setting in. Well, the best antidepressant in the world is a puppy and by mid February, I was able to adopt Penny. Disaster averted!

    @SNS, Penny appears to look happy because of a shorter “DO” but also, the Sun was bearing down on us and she was panting, just a little bit.

    “The cat’s eyes changed from gray to green?”

    She’s a cat.

    They do whatever they WANT.
