It’s been a little while since we visited with Sam Sam.
She is quite active, constantly running around and reminding us that she is nearby and needs attention.
In this upside-down pose one can see her “goatee” more fully. It’s part of her distinctive face markings.
We are quite enjoying her many antics. Here we see Sam Sam walking the ledge in the studio, looking for attention of course.
Sam Sam continues to come into her own at CatSynth HQ, even claiming the “throne” pillow in the main room.
In this portrait, one can see that she has not just the distinctive smudge on her nose, but also a little spot of black on her chin. A goatee of a sort.
She has also become quite talkative, often letting us know when she wants attention or has an opinion to share.
And she does want a lot of attention. Samantha has taken to frequently rolling around on the rug and exhorting us to play.
We at CatSynth are happy to oblige.
Sam Sam is getting a bit more comfortable in her new home. She was out and about this morning, and quite talkative.
These photos show her very expressive eyes.
I really should take the tags out of that shoe. And yes, there are shoes all over CatSynth HQ.
Luna posed quite elegantly for this impromptu portrait. As always, she seems to match the interior design. The quintessential modern city cat.
If I can wrangle Photoshop, we might also be able to use this as Luna’s official logo portrait for our new app-development house, the CatSynth Appwerx! So far we just have CatSynth: The App, and that is all we can say at this time for a great many reasons.
We have a lot going on at CatSynth HQ this extended holiday weekend. Here we see Luna supervising the process of documenting artwork.
It’s actually not my artwork, or Luna’s; but it is a series of great cartoons by a very close friend of ours, many of which are part of a series called the Mensa Cats. I am using both a portrait (fixed) lens and a zoom lens to get the best photos possible. This impromptu photo featuring Luna was done with the portrait lens, which sometimes blurs a bit.
It’s been a while since Luna has made an appearance on CatSynth, a situation that is entirely my fault. But today we start to correct that with some photos of Luna over the past month.
I am happy to report that Luna is doing fine. The same busy-ness that has limited my posts here has sometimes meant less time to spend with her. And Luna does her part to make sure I feel solidly guilty about this.
When I am home, we do spend as much time together as we can, including relaxing together. This usually features copious amounts of cuddling and purring.
She can sometimes make it difficult for me to get up and do other things.
And of course, there is napping and sleeping. She is a cat after all. One recent day when she was exceptionally sleepy, I was able to tuck her into the covers for this cute picture.
I do hope to make this visits with Luna a regular feature again, along with the backlog of reviews and other posts in the queue. Such is life at this moment.
Luna is enjoying a respite from the rain and play-hunting the birds outside on the patio. The stretch of rain is actually a good thing for us, considering that 2013 was the driest year on record for California. It also gives me a chance to concentrate on reorganizing CatSynth HQ, a project that has dragged on for a long time and left things here in a bit of disorder. You can still see a bit of it around Luna in the photo above.
Sometimes Luna makes it hard for me to move and get on with things when she settles in on my lap. It’s all calm, cuddles and purrs.
I caught Luna this morning, doing the adorable thing where she rolls onto her back and has her paws curled up. It’s a pose that screams “Play with me!” And I am happy to oblige.
This has been a quiet weekend after another few weeks of both excitement and tumult, and I think we are enjoying having the extra time to spend together.
As per usual, Luna is enjoying morning sunshine by sitting underneath one of our many glass tables at CatSynth HQ. Unfortunately, her favorite one is completely covered with piles of clothing right now, but that doesn’t stop her from claiming her usual spot.
The glass dining table has become a staging area for a major clothing purge. Here things are separated into items to be sold, donated or given to friends. After a zealous start, I have been busy with work and rehearsals for upcoming shows (including a performance tonight), so the piles remain for now. But Luna and I will both be happy when they disappear.
