  • The obligatory cat sitting inside and thinking outside the box, ogling for mischief.

  • To speed things up, I rushed through the tutorial and quickly sketched a portrait of a beautiful cat. Maybe not the best way to learn how to draw, but it is, after all, a challenge.

  • I got this double cat hammock for Christmas. The cats seem to enjoy it.

  • One person’s trash is supposedly another person’s Xmas treasure. They were bought on a whim, yet never used. I hope I’ll put them to good use.

  • On caturday we eat together, yet separated because of dietary differences. Still seeing the other eat improves the appetite 🐱🍽️

  • Caturday means day of tolerance and love. 🐱

  • I always wondered why my cats are so strong…

  • Not yet caturday, yet so close 🐱😻

  • I went away for quite some hours today, and my cats wanted to hang out with me, on my lap, to show their love. Unfortunately, they’re big cats and my lap has limited space available. I guess I should lie down to offer more “human surface” for them 🐱

  • So perhaps I should do some urban sketching with a notebook and a pen. Here’s two sketches of my two Bengal cats in low-low resolution (16x16) 🎨🐱Perhaps the resolution should be more like 64x64 pixels for better recognizability, or even higher, 160x144. So more experiments…

  • I don’t have a front garden, so I made one. I call it a micro garden. My cat Maahir seems to enjoy it 🌸🐱🏠

  • One of my cats had to be vaccinated. He never leaves the house, so this is a big deal to him. The vet was nice to him and he got a clean bill of health, including his teeth. Now, back home, he seems himself again, busy grooming🐱

  • When I picked the first names—both adjectives—of my cats I didn’t put much effort in it, yet in hindsight their meanings turned out fine. Aziz means mighty, and Maahir competent. Bengal cats are closer to nature than most breeds, and are prone to 😱 mischief and destruction🐱

  • Day 8 of the micro∙blog May challenge, “union.” 👯‍♂️🐱📷🎨

  • Tomorrow the micro∙blog photo blogging challenge starts. I like to hide some extra info in the alt tag, accessible via right-click on desktop or voiceover on mobile devices. It’s both civil to a certain part of the readership that has low vision, and an easter egg for others.

  • Social bonding through grooming. One grooms, the other purrs, softly, because it’s for the other cat, not for a (in feline perspective) deaf human. 🐱

  • Photo of Aziz (means sweatheart). As the true sunbather 😎 he is, he jumped right up once I opened the sunshades. The other, Maahir (means the excellent, distinguished), jumped right next to him, but found it too cramped a space, so he left the spot in the sun🐱

  • Photo. Sun ☀️ lover 😻 even if the available sunlight is in a cage.

    Note. The cage is for feeding, because both my cats have different dietary needs and eating each other’s food is either bad or wasteful. Not that they know nor care. 🐱

  • Photo. No one told them that plateau has room for only one cat 🐱
