Happy Leap Day!

Leap Day is supposed to be a day where you do something you normally don't do...

Double-decker cats
As Evidence, here's Josie and Maggie almost sharing the same space ... double-decker cats!

(Please ignore the box wine -- a joke from a friend -- and the diet drinks -- leftover from company. None are for Mom and Dad...)

Back porch visitor

Visitor on the back porch
We had a visitor out back. We knew a black kitten had been visiting our neighbor. Well, looks like he made it over our fence and onto our deck. He curled up and napped for a little while, then headed off. We're hoping he has a home, and is just visiting and checking out the surroundings.

Photo shoot

We had a good photo shoot this weekend, but then Mom and Dad also had to go take photos of the actors for Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. (People playing cats, I guess ... but why would they be on a hot tin roof. That just doesn't sound comfortable at all.) So the people pictures got a little more attention last night. Something about having to finish a newsletter. But there are new pictures coming! Dad says he's having one of those days where he wishes he could just stay home with us (isn't that every day?) ... too bad he has to work so he can buy us cat food. Did I mention we are out of cat food. Yeah, it was that kind of weekend. We got real low late last night, so we'll get new food tonight. But we're extra floofy, so we can go an afternoon without snacking.

Not quite napping together

Not quite napping together
Yeah, this is about as close as it gets to us napping together, so you can imagine how quick Mom and Dad were to try to snap this picture. The weather was so nice on Thursday that we got to have our windows open, and better yet, Mom worked from home for part of the day so we got to snoopervise, too!

Lio's cat

Lio's cat is at it again... this is one of our favorite comic strips to start the morning. And Mutts is great today too.

Life-saving cat

Dad read me this article today. Amazing, although I'm not surprised it was an orange cat ... just saying.

It's been a hectic week for both Mom and Dad. Mom is working on some grants for the theatre. Dad is getting new electronic records software at his office (moving away from wasteful paper). That has kept them very distracted and not there to help us visit friends and blog. Here's hoping for a return to a routine soon.

The cat's in the bag

The cat's in the bag...
Mom and Dad are constantly amazed by the places we manage to nap. I'm a little embarrassed by the clutter in this picture, but it was such a great napping spot for me. There was a bag that had clothes in it that was still in the closet, some shoes, and a hand towel. This may appear to be a lumpy uncomfortable pile to sleep on if you are a person, but for me this is just perfect.

I've also made a very subtle change to the blog ... after blogging for over seven years, I finally have my own user name. I had always borrowed Mom and Dad's account to visit blogs. But with Google+ and Mom using the gmail account more, I decided I needed my own. So now it actually says "Jasper McKitten-Cat" instead of "jenianddean" and I'm very excited about that!

Huggy Bear's got his eyes on you
Happy Valentine's Day! Here's Huggy Bear getting some love from Mom this weekend -- a lazy Sunday morning early Valentine's Day snuggles.

Huggy Bear likes to hike his leg up when he's getting belly runs.

I hope you all get extra treats today for Valentine's Day!

Famous cat videos

I saw this list of famous cat YouTube videos from the Free Kibble site. If you missed it, there are some classics here. Surprise Kitty is still Mom's favorite.
