(Almost) Wordless Wednesday: The Lineup

Sometimes serendipity (with a little assistance from open window weather) brings together all the furbabies in the house:


Far from a professional photographer, I lost the battle of lighting in this photo. So, in case it's hard to tell, there are indeed five furbabies present in this picture:


Can anybuddy tell which furbaby is which?

And, this seems like an apt enough post to share these window view drawings I created for the upcoming French Market art fair benefiting the local Hospice Hearts animal rescue group:



Happy Wednesday to all of our furiends!

Our Tip of the Day:
Aloe vera is a common plant that many humans grow and use, such as for its healing and soothing properties. However, it can be toxic to cats and dogs if ingested, often causing vomiting and diarrhea, among other symptoms. If you keep an aloe vera plant around, such as for those kitchen burns or even just decoratively, be sure to keep it out of reach of your furbabies.

Easy, they are 1, 2, 3, 4, an 5! Says so right on the picture...

Marg said...

It is really hard to take a picture into a window. But that is a great picture of all of them together. We know who 3 and 4 are but aren't sure about the others. Is #1 Eddy??
Have a great day

Annie Bear said...

Oh, how cute! All together in the window! This is a challenge.
1-Eddy, 2-Thimble, 3-Evan, 4-Astrid, 5-Toby

I love this picture! They look so intent except for Eddy (I think).

I love to see them all gathering together like this! Great picture. And I like your paintings too. There's something about a cat or dog looking out the window . . .

That is too cute that they are all lined up in the window. The most I ever get is 2 in a window. Your drawings are great, I am sure they are going to raise a lot of money. Good tip about the aloe, I know many people that have that in the house, it is one thing I could never grow.

We love your picture of gang all looking out the window.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Great picture! We know #4 is Astrid. MOL!

That's a great photo of all of you in the window! We very much like the drawings!

Kitties Blue said...

We'll never guess correctly so just want to ask: How come there are four cats in the window but only three on your header? The Eiffel Tower and cat are lovely. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

The Menagerie Mom said...

Good question! I myself have three cats, and my sister and her cat Toby live with me (and we are more or less co-owners of pup Astrid). I usually just stick with drawing my three cats and Astrid for my headers, primarily because if I included Toby then I would also feel compelled to include all of my parents cats, with whom I'm very close and who sometimes visit my house as well. Since they have four cats, that would mean I would be trying to squeeze a total of nine furbabies into the drawings. So, for the sake of ease and fairness, my headers typically include just my three kitties and Astrid. (I am in the process of finishing drawings of all nine furbabies in my family, though. I've shared the already completed ones on my blog, and I'll very soon be sharing the final ones as well!)

Thank you for visiting and commenting, as always! Purrs!

It's always wonderful when the kitties hang out together and are getting along. :) And those are really beautiful drawings - I hope they help raise lots of funds for the rescue.

What a fun photo. I bet you'll cherish it forever. :) L to R, we're guessing Eddy, Thimble, Evan, Astrid and Toby!

The Daily Pip said...

Oh my gosh, this is an amazing shot. I know all too well how challenging it is to get everyone in one spot. Actually, don't think I've every managed it!
