Moses the cat and Matilda the dog may be of different species, but they have something in common: both of them were rescued by amanuensis' niece. They now live happily together in the Ohio countryside. Apparently no one told Moses that he's supposed to dislike dogs, because he really seems to want to cuddle up to Matilda.
They'll be boarding Modulator's Friday Ark today. On Sunday, the Carnival of the Cats is at Kashim & Othello and Salome.

ManCat Monday: a nap after birding
Some of my friends have stopped by and asked what's up with me, because it's been quite a while since I posted anything. Well, I've just been hanging around like any cat would, indulging in my favorite hobbies--birding and napping. Yes, it's finally spring here. The snow's been gone for some time, and there are birds singing constantly. That's one reason why I'm napping now. Every day I get up before dawn and station myself by the window so that I can listen to the birds. The cardinals are particularly loud; I like to imagine them filling their nests with tasty little baby cardinals right now.
After I've been bird watching for a few hours, my humans finally wake up and give me my morning meal. Then I go outside and sit in my backyard for a while, but before long I need to take my midday nap. I am a mature cat, and I need my rest! I usually go out again in the afternoon and watch for the chipmunks that live under the back steps. It's a pretty good life.
So hello to all you cats and catted ones. I promise to write more often and visit your blogs.
