Elektra: Will you be my cat?

Carl: No, but we can be friends.

Here’s a little bit of morning sun in the garden, where we went to celebrate Zephyr’s birthday (7) and Elektra’s (5). Zephyr’s is accurate because we adopted him from a rescue group (Anjellicle Cats, which I highly recommend if you’re ever looking in New York City) while Elektra’s is an estimate, because she just wandered into the garden one day. 

Tonight I’m going out for dinner, which means I’ll miss my usual evening walk through the garden with the cats. This was not a decision I made lightly!  

I call this pose my ‘Orange Lily.’
