can’t you tell it’s snowing out here?

naptime for buttercup

You can find Buttercup under the bubble light tree every afternoon, where she enjoys a long nap before DD gets home from school. She doesn’t bother the ornaments…just makes a little nest and snuggles in. And if DD is late, Buttercup prowls the front hall, crying until she gets home. ~~Rhonda

one relaxed cat

Buttercup’s favorite winter napping spot is on the heating vent in the kitchen. She was totally asleep when I took the picture. ~~Rhonda

DD tried all the toys… A few days later, Niko joined her as she practiced guitar. Niko picks his own cuddle time. Sometimes he’s in the mood, sometimes he’s not. Tonight, […]
