First Painting of Josie

Josie has inspired me…here's my first ink & watercolor painting of her.
She has taken to hiding under a tiny table covered with a patchwork
  table cloth beside the bed.
It's like a tent and I placed  a pillow underneath  to make it comfy.

September afternoon

A beautiful, clear cool day...
and I spotted this dragonfly who paused long enough
to capture its delicate beauty with my camera.

bees and sunchokes

End of August

A lovely surprise in the marsh, a juvenile Night Heron
appeared briefly and vanished into the reeds.

In the evening, Josie ran to the window to stalk something.
I thought it was probably an insect the way she cautiously
crept up upon it. From my vantage point I couldn't see what it was
so I quietly went over to investigate.
Sitting on the outside of the window sill was a tiny frog.
It eventually climbed all over the outside of the window
and it was amazing to see how it stuck with suction as it 
traveled and we got a view of the underside.

This and That

This morning Josie was in her heart shaped basket.
She is so very sweet...

Down by the ocean we love to observe the 
baby eider ducks with their mom.

Josie May

Josie's first day home...27 May.
She stayed in the basket for the longest time
watching the birds and chipmunks.

Day two and she seemed very comfy. Getting her used to
one room at a time.
(she was recovering from surgery)

We opened the couch so we could spend the nights
with her.

She loves all kinds of baskets...and we have plenty of them
which our other cats had enjoyed.

First day upstairs, June 1st...and she slept on our bed.

Josie jumped down into the stair window...

In the early morning she had jumped up to the bedroom
window to watch birds fly by...

D was delighted that she snuggled up on a pillow on his lap.

Here she is among the others adopted around the same time
from the Animal Shelter:

After we made the decision to adopt her, a staff member
 placed a red collar on her.
She had to stay at the shelter few days before
we could bring her home.
Though she's only been here nearly
2 weeks we feel like we've known her
so much longer.  She continues to surprise us
with her sweet and unique personality.

So lovely....
