FRIDAY CAT BLOGGING….I didn’t let the cats outside for a few days because of the smoke and ash from the fires, so they were especially thrilled when I finally let them out yesterday. Jasmine immediately crawled up the wall to the patio cover and spent the morning rolling around and demanding attention from on high whenever I went outside. Earlier in the week, Inkblot amused himself as an indoor cat by jumping in and out of a handy cardboard box before figuring out that it really wasn’t quite big enough for a cat of his magnificence.

BONUS CATS: Over at Mona Charen Watch, aside from watching Mona Charen, they’re also showing off their cats, Smokey and Tiger. Check ’em out.
