a/k/a "the leaner cat." Well, that's just one of his many nicknames. As this post relates to the last one in the category of Sleeping Places & Poses, that's the applicable nickname.

Xander likes to lean against things (i.e. walls, pieces of furniture) and then gradually slide down..that's how these poses came about.

I know, Polly (sweet greyhound friend) want dogs, not kittehs on the blog. But, can I resist sharing this:
 Or this. Which isn't the best shot, but is meant to illustrate a point. Spike doesn't have bones in his spine. It must only be cartilage. In this picture he has his front paws pointing to one side and his back feet pointing straight up. Often, though, he rolls farther over so that the back feet are pointing completely the other way! The cuteness is almost unbearable!

 I thoroughly enjoyed watching the lunar eclipse the other day. Tried to capture a few pix of that beautiful blood moon, but wasn't particularly happy with any of them. This is the best one...and it's admittedly not all that great.

On a different note, here's 'Mo's fall shot:

I love fall. (And, actually spring...and summer...and winter....well, maybe not so much winter. I dislike being really cold and the short days. So, I'm going with no on winter. But I digress.)
 I like fall. I like it when the days are still not terribly short and it's not cold yet, but a tiny bit crisper. And I like the colors of fall.
 We went to Virginia a couple of weeks ago to spend some time with friends. We visited and relaxed; we spent some time just walking around the town. There's a beautiful cemetery that has a lot of civil war-era graves.

Tin roof...rusted! (My nod to the B-52's song...)
