My photo
Having a large Scottish heritage that migrated from England into Canada to Maine and other states. I am from a family of 9. Six girls and 3 boys. My dad died young when I was about 8 years old. I have 4 children and 3 step children with the great joy of 20 grandchildren. I worked in financial institutions and accounting for many years. Now I sew and make lots of stuffed animals and many other things. I'm a grandmother that has years of sewing in a wide variety of catagories. Photography has become one of my passions over the years. Nature that God has presented us is one of the greatest to photograph. My family and pets hate to see me with a camera in my hands. The bug took hold at Christmas time taking photos of my children in front of the tree. That became a tradition. Then you have family gatherings, vacations, grandchildren and the list could go on.

Our Cat Shadows Behavior

Anyone owning a cat know that sometime their behavior can be very weird at times. Our cat Shadow has been like that lately. Going into places she doesn't belong as well as seemingly unlikely to accomplish.

She has jumped from an end stand in the family room to the top of the china cabinet which is a good almost five foot jump. Watching her do it was incredulous, if we hadn't seen it happen we wouldn't know she could do it.

One evening we kept hearing a banging sound. Similar to a door trying to be opened and it closing first, then nothing. I got up to check what it might be and a cabinet door in the kitchen was partially open. When I opened it guess what I found sleeping in the back...yup...Shadow.

I heard another strange sound one day and went searching to see where in was coming from and discovered her curled up in the printer opening. I removed her four read right..four times! She kept coming back. The last time she got mad and wanted to go outside. She does that when we have a disagreement. Yes, I have three printers. They all only do something different that the other won't, because mine died and each was given to me. Thankfully, all use the same USB cable and I just rotate to the one needed at the time.

Recently, I couldn't find her so went looking for her again knowing how well she likes to irritate me. Went walking through the house. Happened to glance into the bathroom and see the door under the sink partially open. Yup..there she was sleeping in the back corner. Went and got the camera just to prove she opened the door.

There are times when we have found her on top of the kitchen cabinets that is a four foot jump. Over the past going on five years I have taken hundres of pictures of the crazy things she does. Our neighbor gave us a sign that Dogs have masters, cats have staff. With them we totally belive it! My husband has decided that they came into our lives exclusively to irritate us. They came to us when they were older kittens about 12 weeks old as feral. The other one is Black Beauty which she is, but extremely irritating with her behavior. She is another total story by herself.
