|This is Abi from a few years ago. He was born August 30, 1996.|
|Amidala was probably born in 1997.|
In addition to being the "lovebug" and always wanting to hang out on my lap, Amidala seems to love sitting on any piece of paper or book she runs across. If there's a single piece of paper on the floor or a chair, she will go out of her way to sit on it.
Eric made a picture of Amidala sitting on his Biology textbook into a meme to amuse a friend. That meme still gets used from time to time.
|In April 2001, Penny came to live with us as a kitten|
|Penny has always been an active and curious cat, and likes to be near us. |
Here, Eric is showing Penny's paw. She decided walk across a dropcloth where we had been using wood stain.
Her paw was a lovely reddish brown, which you can see near her claw.
Our cats drive me bonkers when they crowd me in bed--they don't seem to sleep on Eric as often as they do on me. My lap becomes a territorial dispute from time to time, too.
|Penny lays claim to the lap as I catch up on my DVRed shows.|
|Abi and Amidala jockey for lap space.|
All three cats are all getting to be "of a certain age," and I expect they will be gone soon.
Right now, we're not planning on bringing in more cats or pets for a while. I wonder what life will be like without cat hair on my black clothes or dust bunnies chasing one another under the bookshelves.Though I won't miss cleaning up after them, I will miss them
I admit it. It makes me laugh when cats forget their tongues are sticking out. I tried to pictures of it for years before I caught these two in the act. I've never caught Penny with her tongue out on camera, though.
I'm easily amused.
