Weekend Cat Blogging with Luna

There are times when I envy Luna’s ability to just relax.

After several weeks of hyper-activity and a bit of tumult, we are enjoying a quiet weekend at home, with plenty of sun puddles.

I of course have quite a few things to do – preparing for my annual New York trip and getting out a couple of gig reports for this site – but time with Luna is definitely a priority.

Weekend Cat Blogging with Luna: Day of Rest

Luna resting

It’s not unusual for Luna to spend most of her day napping in sun puddles, but it’s a rare occasion when I get do so as well.  This month has been rewarding but also exhausting, with work, the Portland trip, multiple shows and sundry other events and obligations.  Fortunately, this weekend is largely free and thus a good time to rest as well as attend to health and home.    And of course to spend time with Luna.


The Carnival of the Cats will be up this Sunday at Mind of Mog.

We at CatSynth are looking forward to a quiet and sunny weekend. Here we see Luna enjoying her morning sunshine patches:

The crispness of the filter and the lines and tones around Luna make for a particularly elegant and sophisticated image.

Our primary agenda for this weekend is to relax. And while that involves a fair amount of lying around (especially for Luna), it also includes some time outside, going to see art and making music without any particular agenda in mind.


The Carnival of the Cats will be hosted this Sunday by Samantha, Clementine and Maverick.

Weekend Cat Blogging: Luna in Sunshine

Luna can usually be found in the morning enjoying the sunshine on one of the dining-area chairs, often underneath the glass surface of the table. It does look warm and relaxing.

If only we could all have mornings like this.

The blog has been even more cat-centric than usual this week, but I notice no one is complaining. Nonetheless, we have some music and art reviews coming up soon.

Weekend Cat Blogging: Modernist Sunshine

Luna always loves the patches of sunshine that pour into CatSynth HQ in the morning. On this particular morning we see her posing regally in an Art-Deco-patterned sunshine spot. The shadow is cast by the table just behind her, a piece that dates back to my graduate-student days in Berkeley but still fits the overall style of our current pad in the city.


On a sad note, we learned that our friend and fellow cat-blogger has passed away. We send her family our thoughts.

Weekend Cat Blogging #296

It looks like it’s going to be another beautiful morning here.  Luna maintains her routine on sunny mornings of bedding down on a dining room chair.  And while I am busy working, she is dreaming:

Like many, we have been hungrily following the events in Egypt (if by some chance, you are not following this, you should be) – and excited to see hopeful changes for the people there. While the focus is of course on the major political changes and peoples’ safety, I did look into stories about animals in the land that once worshipped cats as gods. Through this article, we did read about Egyptian Mau Rescue, and browsed the Facebook page for the Egyptian Society for Mercy to Animals. Ultimately, these visits ended up being a narrative about people and the challenges they face caring for animals amidst major upheaval.

On this rather busy weekend, we take a moment to enjoy the sunshine:

I have heard several people refer to Luna as “sunshine.”

Weekend Cat Blogging: Sunshine

A very busy weekend, in the midst of a very busy and tumultuous couple of weeks. But we take a few minutes to relax in the sunshine that comes in the studio window:

And what is even better than relaxing in the sun? Getting pets and scritches at the same time!
