Little Ella at 4 months old! My dear friends Karen and Bryan live in Kentucky and I was happy to finally meet their little girl!

so cute with dad!

I can’t forget their furballs!

Euphrates was sitting in such pretty light; I played with this scene for quite a while until he got bored with me and ran away

I love the look of intent she’s giving me

Kitty time!

Jasper and Cleo

I am pleased to introduce everyone to the newest members of my household: Jasper and Cleo! I adopted these two sweet 11 year old kitties from the Anti-Cruelty Society in downtown Chicago two weeks ago, and they’ve adapted quite well to my house. They had become such good friends at the shelter that the staff determined one would not be adopted without the other. Perfect for me, as I was looking for 2 cats to adopt at once. They’re super friendly and are both lap cats (though Jasper is rather large to fit on my lap – he often falls off). Now if only I could cure Jasper of his obsession with eating toilet paper…
