Me, Cradling Mikey After His Last Bath

T made this photo with her Blackberry on 11 April 2010. Mikey-cat was quite content to remain wrapped up in those towels as I cradled him in my arms. He peacefully died in his sleep the next day (this morning) aged 17 years, 11 days. We'd been together since he was 8 weeks old.

Marcy, late July
25 July 2009

This is the last photo I made of Marcy. My bed will never be the same without her on it. She was a good kitty. I'm glad I knew her.

Today is a slow day. Thoughts are percolating in my brain, and I've had to take a day off from work to let them process. In the meantime, I'm off to school for a couple of hours of study. I may catch a musical performance in Bryant Park afterwards, weather permitting. Just in case, I've put my DSLR in my knapsack. Of course, I could use it to annoy make photos of T. We'll see what opportunities arise. :-)

Mikey is bonding with his Auntie T. I would normally throw away this photo, as I had not intended to expose it this way. However, keeping everything outside of Mikey's head in zones 7-9 forces the viewer's eye to Mikey, who is the subject of the photo.

Sometimes even our so-called mistakes turn out to be valuable and not mistakes after all.

This pup was quiet the whole ride, content to people-watch as the train sped towards its destination.

Happy sixth birthday, Marcy!

Enrique At Nine Months

He's grown quite a bit since he first came home with [livejournal.com profile] labyrinthnight.

Let's compare, shall we? )

"Helping" Mommy with her work wore him out!

He is huge. He has real weight to him when we pick him up. If left to his own devices, he would eat us out of house and home. Maybe [livejournal.com profile] labyrinthnight brought home a baby tiger, after all!

I wanted to take some shots of Twyla's freshly-cleaned drivetrain. Enrique decided to check out the setup to make sure everything was alright. Whatever would I do without him?

He is the same size as Marcy, now, and nearly as big as Freddie.
