Anna: The cat sometimes likes to sit with her front paws together oh-so-precisely. I decided to see how co-operative she would be with the super macro setting on the camera. This is the only photo that turned out. *L* I even tried a few of her face, which she's let me do before, but today she kept rubbing her cheeks on the camera and moving around. So, I had to be satisfied with my one good picture. And clean my lens of cat smears. ;-)
Today, I also got a special crock pot, just for the sourdough. Actually, it's a pottery cannister. I needed something small enough not to take up too much space in the kitchen, with a wide open mouth big enough for us to scoop in with a 1 cup measuring cup, and a lid that doesn't seal air tight (wouldn't want it to explode...). So now my baby sourdough is an adolescent sourdough, with a very thorough feeding. A few more days, and we'll test it out. :-D
Philippe: Well, since we're doing kitty shots, I'd like to say that, for *this cat*, being spoiled rotten would be a major step down for her. We are *all* private nap areas, nose wipe (she calls it nuzzling) areas, and climbing posts.. and she will *not* be dissuaded when she wants someone for one of those roles.. She's jumped up on Anna when she was putting on shoes, she's jumped on my shoulder *as soon as* I've put on my shirt in the morning (she tried once without the shirt and won't do that again, I d0n't think.. Too noisy).
