October Surprise

Have you ever noticed that some of the craziest changes, the ones that really affect your daily life, come completely out of the blue?

We've had a beautiful warm fall. The leaves just started changing last week. I love the complementary colors of the orangey leaves against that blue blue sky.

I had one of those big crazy changes drop in my lap on one of those impossibly warm beautiful days a few weeks ago. My quiet, comfortable one-cat home expanded in a completely unexpected way. Someone dropped these sweet little boys out by my parents house, and though I agonized over the decision, in the end I couldn't turn them away.

I don't have many good pictures because they don't stay still for long. Here is Sark in a rare quiet moment. A friend told me the other day that a person and a cat are one thing, but 3 cats are a family. And what a difference that is!  Our transition has been complicated by the fact that this is the first day I've spent at home since they came to live here. But we're all adjusting to the big changes and today we're having a lovely lazy nap-filled day.

Here's Bobby crashed out in a sunny spot. So for the record: I now live with three black male cats. Pistol is 10 and named for Pistol Pete Maravich. Bobby is 6-8 months and named for Roberto Clemente. And Sark is 6-8 months and named for Husky football coach Steve Sarkisian. 'Cause we like sports names around here. Also, Pistol is huge and Bobby and Sark are catching up FAST.

Hmmm, everyone's napping...momma's gonna go make some art!
