The Truth About Ash & Beauty

I love this photo because our cat Beauty has folded herself into a tiny shoe box. Her brother Ash, because he can't bear to be away from her but can't quite fit himself in the shoe box with her, has his front leg draped along her back.

Until a few days ago Ash's name was Ashlily. Then my aunt came to visit, took one look at his nether regions and told us the undeniable truth.

Ash whispering in my aunt's ear: "Please tell them I'm not a girl!"
Ashlily's name needed to be quickly and irrevocably shortened to Ash.

And I will be calling the vet immediately to make arrangements for these two so that we don't end up with a lot of extra cats running around the house!

Life is full of surprises, isn't it? Have you had any surprises lately, pleasant or otherwise?


  1. lol! Cute photo!
    Life is indeed full of surprises Amy.
    My pleasant surprise last week was discovering that we're back to school on 28th of this month, not 27th as I thought!
    Yay! teachers like an extra day off too!!

  2. I'm not even a cat person and you got me with those photos.

    Surprises...not really, just a real season of testing and refining.
