Felines and flowers

Kitska, our friendly and sociable male American Shorthair tabby, about nine years old.

Sophia, our female American Shorthair tabby cross, almost ten months old. Her eyes remind me of The Brain in the American animated television series (1995–1998), “Pinky and the Brain” (they first appeared on “Animaniacs” in 1993). Remember their infamous words? Pinky: “Gee Brain, what do you want to do tonight?” The Brain: “The same thing we do every night, Pinky—try to take over the world.”

The male moggie and me: Kitska and a cup of coffee (note the design of the cup: ceramic American Shorthair on the handle and portrayed on the cup. It is captioned in German as Amerikanischen Kurzhaar).

Pink tulips in the kitchen, South Vancouver, B.C., Canada in early May 2009.
