Lisa Playing

Any time the sun is shining brightly through our windows Lisa get very excited and wants to play. I’m not sure how this game of hers got started but she sure does get vocal when chasing the sunlight!

I use a double sided mirror to reflect the sun’s light, the HUGE sunbeam is the magnification side of the mirror.

Please, if you are going to try playing with your cat in this way remember:

Keep the light off from the cat’s face and eyes. Just like we aren’t supposed to stare into the sun, the same precaution goes with this reflected sunlight.

Before you try this you may want to practice directing the reflection of light without your cat present at first. Just to make sure you have good control of this powerful fun beam!

Look! I actually colored something!
Who knows where this Vulpix is running off to? Perhaps its about to rain and she is running for cover.

I call it a wildcat, but its really just a made up cartoon kitty with spots and stripes, as you can see it has a collar on so its not WILD… but you get the point.

There are hummingbirds in my neighborhood and I keep on hearing their little chirps! They are so quick and small that it was a real chore to capture them on film.

I finally got some decent footage of them stretching their wings, scratching their head and taking off into flight. Complete with instant replay in slow motion. There is even a neat shot of the sun reflecting off from their iridescent feathers.

This year in growing catnip from seed, it looks like it is doing well. So I decided to prune off the tops of each stem to promote branching out.

Purr Purr!

I knew that a certain someone would enjoy eating that bunch of nip clippings.

She means me, right?

No! Not you, Lisa.

He likes those fresh leaves.

As I began feeding him the leaves and playing with him Lisa sat about a foot away.. giving us such an unimpressed look.

Really, Nice Guy? Aren’t you too old to be playing like that.

Of course I was planning on giving her some of the catnip all along. But when I did this is what happened:

*Awkward Silence*

Oh come on Lisa! Nice Guy isn’t some sort of toxic chemical plant. You can share…

No, no, no. I couldn't possibly eat that. Nice Guy breathed on it.

No, no, no. I couldn’t possibly eat that. Nice Guy breathed on it.

My daughter and myself were doing some laundry when we found this super cute moth hanging out on the door! So of course, I had to take a video of it because its SO CUTE!! It looks like it is newly emerged because its wings aren’t that big yet.

Don’t worry we were really careful with it and put it in a safe place after filming!

Firstly, this video is LOUD so don’t wear headphones or have your volume up too much.

I just made this video to document the weather. A sudden dark cloud was passing over when I was doing some gardening and lo and behold… HAIL came raining down from the sky. Wow.

Then there was even some really loud BOOMs! I thought it was thunder, but it just looked like a couple streaks going horizontally across the sky.
Confused, I went and got my better video camera to make sure that it wasn’t some cell phone abnormality.

But it happened again. Oh well, neat anyways!
Just thought I’d share : )

We were looking for Kyoko and just when we were about to give up we found him laying in the back of the dresser drawer. Comfy as a king, but slightly concerned that we found his hiding spot.

“Well that was fun while it lasted, I had better get out now…”

The picture below is his reaction when I told him that it is OK for him to be in the drawer. “So, I can lay here?”

I’m REALLY not in trouble?

He looked like he understood that I wasn’t upset, but it would have been more fun for him to be in the drawer without us knowing.

Yay, I’m pretty happy with how this one turned out! I’d say its one of my better ‘speed drawings’ on my channel. -Feel free to share if you are so moved 😀

I’m really getting into gardening this spring, even though I only have a “patio garden” and have to grow all of my plants in containers.
Here is a video I did about propagating Rex Begonias from a leaf cutting.
