Our Cats

We got two kittens in the beginning of summer, but  they are teenager-cats now.

This is Shadow, who is a very good hunter.  She only likes to go to places her sister has already explored.

This is Shadow holding a chipmunk that she caught!


This is Patches, she is the explorer. When we first got the kittens, Patches explored the house. I guess that after a while Patches must have told Shadow that it was safe because Shadow started going with her everywhere.

This is Patches exploring our brush pile.


That’s all for now!

We found a big spider

Here is a big spider that we found while raking leaves today.


Spiders are air-breathing arthropods.  They are found in every continent except Antarctica.

Spiders mostly prey on bugs, but few large species prey on large birds and lizards.  Argh, that is scary!

That’s all for now.
