Monday is Cat Week: Top Shelf

Sometime next year, this bookcase that Helena’s crouching on will probably be replaced by cat shelves. I have a feeling she can’t wait.

Monday is Cat Week: Splendor

It’s week three (or maybe four) of Helena’s first-ever indoor grass patch. I’ve yet to catch her chillaxing on the turf, but the cat-shaped imprint there tells me all I need to know.

She’s only been here five months, but Helena pretty much owns the place now. Nobody’s complaining.

Monday is Cat Week: Cold But Cool

http://www.flickr.com/photos/jpchan/4321550132/
It was 25F outside, but that didn’t stop this cat from having a grand old time on the hood of this parked car. He would lick the hood, then tumble around.I don’t know what he was tasting, but it must have been delicious. I’m just glad his tounge didn’t stick to the metal.

The cat inside the Prius is not nearly as amused by the roadside photo op as I am, even though I’m the one braving 20 degree weather to get the shot.

Marla hasn’t come this close to another cat in years, and judging by her reaction to her uninvited visitor, I don’t think she’s missed the feeling.

Monday Is Cat Week: Sleeping On Your Dime

http://www.flickr.com/photos/jpchan/3075458610/

It’s a fact: you’re slaving away at your day job while your cat stays home, mostly sleeping. And if they didn’t look so darn cute doing it, you might actually do something about it.

Monday Is Cat Week: Last Looks

http://www.flickr.com/photos/jpchan/3039364796/

Moving can be a pretty emotional experience. (Not for me, of course, because I am a bad-ass. I refer here to others.) After you’ve packed and emptied the place you called home, it’s hard not to be reminded of your mortality when you see all that empty space. Soon, someone else’s stuff will fill that void. Soon, someone else will call that place home.After ten years in Brooklyn, I sure will miss the place. My new home in Manhattan is a big step up in just about every way, but I’ll always have a soft spot for the people and places on the Q train. Do cats get wistful, too? Or is Marla just wondering where her litterbox went?

Monday Is Cat Week: 3 Speed

http://www.flickr.com/photos/jpchan/2504659773/

Not unlike an old bike, my cat has exactly three speeds:
1. Begging for food whenever I walk into the kitchen.
2. Hopping on the table and trying to eat whatever I happen to be eating.
3. Looking all cute and whatnot when sleeping.
