Bailey's Cousins in Boise

Owen and Deborah's cats in Boise. Great fun to be with and I didn't feel so lonely for Bailey.

This is Simba. The only male. Deborah didn't want to call him Simba, but because he looks so much like a 'Simba' she had to give in. He is so sweet natured and has such a pretty face. He is the youngest of the three.

This is Sosie. Definitely the matriarch. Very cool, contained and knows she's the boss. Also very sweet natured and very intelligent. Look at those eyes. She knows exactly what's going on. She is also the oldest.

This is Phoebe, the most active of the three. She has one over-riding passion in life. You will see what it is in the next picture...

See that red dot on the back of the sofa? Then look at Barry's hand. The laser beam!! It had been mislaid for several months and we suggested looking down the sides of the sofa -- and there it was. No-one was happier than Phoebe!

Deborah's violas in her window box. Such unusual colors. They fascinated me.

One lonely periwinkle. Probably the first out this year. Such a beautiful, delicate flower.

(Just can't seem to get rid of those large spaces between my pictures.)

There is something so familiar about seeing the cats draped over the sofa like that!
Love the drawing of the lion above.
Love from Jackie and the Gingercats
