brother cuddles


Littermates aren’t the only siblings in my household. Dalek makes sure to spend a lot of time cuddling with his big brother Corexit. When Dalek’s litter was little, Corexit taught them how to take turns while sharing toys.

kitten cuddles

Dalek and Heqat love each other. they spend a lot of time cuddling. they’re brothers from the same litter. sometimes i wonder if sibling-cats who live together develop a bigger cat-language vocabulary than unrelated cats who live together, because i notice that the brothers are way closer with each other than they have been with any of the unrelated cats who have lived in my house. they shared each other’s dreams before they opened their eyes or learned how to tell themselves apart from their wombmates…

flowers from winter

one of my aloe plants flowered at the end of the winter. this is the third time that one of my aloes has flowered. i have aloe plants in every room of my house that has a window. they are mostly related to each other, but i never turn down rescues or adoptions. the oldest of my aloes is probably 9 years old, just maybe barely 10 years old. the one in the pictures below is probably between 5 and 7 years old.

spring always comes

last year’s roses inspire this year’s growth and creativity. since the spring is taking so long to arrive, looking at last year’s pictures gives me hope and joy. Qiuniu keeps telling me that it will be winter forever, but i don’t believe him. do you see the bee in the bottom picture?

dalek loves orion

Orion is the most neurotic of my cats. He is skittish and timid and anxious, and never really bonded with any of the other cats except for Bungalow for a long time. Lately he has been much happier and growing more and more social. He and Dalek have become great friends, and they sleep together on Quiniu’s side of the bed for much of the day.

Rest in Peace, Hathor, and Best Wishes On Your Continued Adventures Through the Universe.

When the Gods assume flesh and blood, we never know their agenda, or how long they will stay. But Hathor walked among us, loved us, and we love him. His time with us was a small adventure in a greater context that we will never understand. We were the lucky ones Hathor chose to grace with his presence, and we will remember him and miss him always. When the Gods walk on Earth, they are like shooting stars, lighting up the whole sky briefly and brilliantly.

Hathor, 10 March 2011 – 24 December 2011
