Sometimes What Fixes Everything is a Kitten!

Even if it’s just in a photograph! I thought it was about time I shared another photo of the alert kitten who was the boldest in the place we were staying in during our trip to Quebec this Spring. I had only a very little light in that basement room they were in, so was glad when a bit came in the window right onto this little cutie’s eyes. He seemed to be the most awake and curious of the litter. And we all know what curiosity does to cats….

Enjoy the rest of the week, everyone! (Gallery is below or if you click on the ‘continue reading’ bit)

Lost Baby Raccoons

A few weeks ago one night we heard Joni making a terrible racket, barking. When Steven went out to investigate he found that she had discovered these babies who were huddled by the door to his workshop. Once Joni was safely in the house we both went outside with our cameras to see if they were still there. Then we took turns holding the flashlight while the other took photos of the cute little things. Then we went to bed hoping that the mother would have come to rescue them by the morning.

The next day I saw the two of them wandering around, but after that they were nowhere to be seen, so I assume that they went off somewhere where they weren’t likely to run into an excited border collie. This is the one I took of them. (Steven posted his photo at the time. You can see his here )

Enjoy your weekend everyone!

This little fellow seemed to relish the idea of walking on the edge – and such a delicate edge, at that! The contrast of the pink petal that is almost like a swirling, silken dress with the yellow and black textured caterpillar body really appealed to me.

Have a wonderful week everyone!

You didn’t know it was International Kitten Day? Well when you have a cute pile of kittens like this, every day is International Kitten Day. And when the kittens are just next to your bedroom in a bed and breakfast, your holiday just doesn’t get any better!

I’m back from my vacation time and have lots of photos of our trip to share as well as stories waiting to be told. I also have a new project I’m planning to share with you all very soon. What does this have to do with kittens? Not a thing, but who needs an excuse to share photo of cute kittens? Not me.
