Today is my birthday so I thought I’d take a break from food writing and just do a little “fluff piece” with photos of my amazing felines. That’s Gary and Mitzi on the stairs, with Gary looking a little miffed and suspicious at having his photo taken.
The second photo shows them having their morning tete-a-tete at the back door with Jason, obviously planning some sort of birthday surprise for me. Jason is the outdoor kitty who “came with the house.” The former owner of the house, who called him “Kitty Brother,” told us that Jason has been a fixture on the property for about seven years, but he won’t let anyone near him or reveal his age. As much as I’d like him to be an indoor kitty, I don’t think he will ever cross that threshold. He does let me feed him every day, and I can now pet him, if I don’t make sudden movements. Jon built him a great little house on our deck where he enjoys napping.
