Portrait of a cat resting after a well deserved breakfast.


Julchen’s comment: “Of course it is well deserved.  Why do you think my humans can sleep so well and carefree at night? Because I am prowling the house, taking care that no pesky invaders disturb their sleep. See? I am a working cat. And don’t get me started on that lazy Siamese. Sleeps all night and still gets fed in the morning. Life is cruel and unfair.”

    Thank you. Julchen is so beautiful. Both your cats are.

  2. Petra Says:

    All cats are beautiful. And I love your cats, so big and fluffy.

    I assume that they are all wearing their summer haircuts right now.

    Beautiful black cat!

    I like those houses, too.

    Yes, Julchen is quite the cat – pitch black with just one small white spot on her tummy. We sometimes jokingly say that this white spot got her disqualified from cauldron stirring school; this refers to a shop we have here, only a short distance away, selling all kinds of potions, oils and other stuff for “white magic.” (Okay, don’t raise your eyebrows, this is delightfully wacky SoCal. But if you should need a wand, let me know – I’ll tell you where to go.)

    The logo of this shop shows a black cat stirring a cauldron. On the website one can read this:

    “Black cats are considered very lucky to witches. This oil is made here at our store, the cat hair donated by a beloved familiar of our staff.”

    And the houses – yes, I only put up two, but there are more. But more would be a bit of an overload, I am afraid.

    Ha, I love wacky witchy and voodoo stuff. My daughter had a voodoo doll for good luck when she was playing soccer. She would stick it in the goal net (she was keeper). I have 3 authentic voodoo dolls, made by a 3rd generation high-priestess in New Orleans. They sit and look at me from the bookshelf to the right of my desk.

    A voodoo doll at soccer games. 🙂

    I like your daughter!
