Free to Be

Taco, our 9 month old mixed breed cat, is an indoor cat. She came into our lives last year when I worked as a controller for a golf cart manufacturer & sales distributor here in the Coachella Valley. She was adorable and I could not refuse my co-worker when he brought her to my office and asked if I wanted a cat. We already had quite a zoo at our place, two bunnies, a turtle, two cats and a pug named Jenny. She was so tiny. I still remember her crawling across my desk before my husband took her home. I remember thinking that Jenny needed a friend since the other two cats in the house didn't hang out with her. Well, I was right. Taco has magically brought the animals in the house together in the past seven months. All animals seem to get along together quite well. Taco regularly grooms Jenny and the other two cats, Duke and Nora. She has also, self appointed herself the Nights Watch of the Downstairs Bathroom. I am sure that no Soapwalkers of the bathroom will be a match for the mighty Taco.

Yesterday, I let her out and did an impromptu shoot of her in our front yard. She has become quite the model. We still have not figured out what breed she is as I am sure she is of a several varieties. She does seem to look like she may have a bit of Maine Coon and from what I have read about them she has some of the personality traits too.

Have a great weekend invisible eyes that is reading this! May the good light find you.

Such a curious girl.

She is such a poser.

She poses like a pro!

You would think that I don't have children.  I make "yearbook-y" sorta-kinda scrapbook type of book as gifts and this year I made one for Valentine's Day.  The above picture is from the morning of Taco's spaying.  You can definitely see the look of concern in Jenny's eyes.

I am slow like a tortoise too.  Much too many things going on around here in the desert now that we have cooler temperatures!  Yeah, I am really digging this site and the cool mix of people and the different cultures.  The photography is everyone has been sharing is has been outstanding!  I thought instagram was a good place but this has so much more to offer.  I do wish there weren't so many glitches but I get that this site is a work in progress :)
