A Black Cat Takes a Jaunt in the Spring

19 Apr

Some of you may have already seen this in an email, but I decided to put it in a blog to commemorate that fact that B.C. will be 21 in people years (approximately 147 in cat years…no, it’s not a record) next month.  Who would have thought that she would still be going strong at this age.  She seems to be pretty healthy other than being deaf and VERY persnickety.  Jerri says I should put her in my will in case she outlives me.  Happy Spring to those of you in the East.  You might even be seeing some hints of the season by now!  (Don’t forget to click on the photos to enlarge them)

I may not be a spring chicken but I know a good day when I see it.  Here I am striding toward the camera, just like any other diva.

I  stop for a sniff at a lady bug.  No response, so I move on.

A stop by the daffodils but they aren't what I'm really looking for.

HERE IT IS!  Some catnip coming up from Mom's last year's garden.  YEA!!!  This stuff gets me going!

Well, on second thought, I think I'll go back into the house to take a bit of a snooze.

I felt pretty good until I sat down.  Now I feel sort of spacey.  Watch out for my claws.  I might accidentally stab you in my drugged state.  Cat nip is still the best.  I'm glad that Mom lets it grow in a protected fence so the squirrels don't eat it.  :-)
