That Darn Squirrel...

You've probably seen that now famous photo with the squirrel who popped up in front of a camera just as it was taking a photo of a couple of hikers. Well, now squirrels everywhere are doing it (or else that one squirrel is really getting around). For the last few days, every single photo I've taken has that darn squirrel in it. I submit just a couple of examples for you, the self portrait above, and a photo of Boo out on the back porch below:

He's Baaaaaack....

I've written about Simba, my neighbor's cat, in other posts. I wouldn't mind him coming into my house if he didn't pee on things. But he does pee, so he is not a welcome visitor. And he seems to be getting bolder. A couple of days ago, while sitting at my computer, I looked over into the kitchen and saw Simba sitting on the kitchen counter by the sink!

I started talking to him, while reaching for my camera, and he jumped down from the counter and casually began making his way to the open front door. I snapped a few photos as he exited. They all came out blurry. Apparently I'm not able to talk and take photos at the same time- it's slightly more challenging than walking and chewing bubble gum at the same time. We all have our limits, I suppose.

But one of the photos I took reveals new information about Simba. Look at it below and then tell me what you think- could Simba be possessed by a demon? Maybe Simba is actually a sweet, good kitty, and it is the demon that is making him pee all over my house?

While Simba was exiting from my kitchen, he walked right by one of my cats, LaLa. She totally ignored him. I found that a little disturbing, as it might indicate that he is here a lot more than I realized, and my cats have just accepted it. If that keeps up, I may wake up one day and find him in bed with me! The other possibility is that Simba isn't actually here at all, and I'm just hallucinating him. That would also explain why LaLa ignored him. But, can hallucinations be photographed?

LaLa Plant

A couple of days ago, just around dusk, I stepped outside for something, and found little LaLa lying in one of the planter pots I have sitting right outside my front door. I've never seen her do that before. I was utterly charmed, so I thought I should take some photos and show you how cute she looked.
