A Day in the Life (July 2007)

(hosted by Ms. Cocoa Puff:)

Every morning Summer and the Jets are out by 7 a.m. Their first task of the day is to reconnoitre with the skunk who lives in the grove. In this picture, looking counter-clockwise from Skunk, you can see Hershey; Summer, who blends into the shadows; Cocoa, with tail held high; and Tootsie:

Cocoa, Tootsie and Taffy move forward:

Tootsie gets up close and personal:

In early afternoon, it's time for a nap. The Jets often settle down with Farah on their collection of furniture. Hershey insists on being highest. Tootsie likes to stretch out on the top of the condo, even though it's too small for her:


Taffy still loves her chair. Compare this photo to the one taken in September 2006

Of course, there are plenty of other good spots for napping - just ask Cocoa:

And - "Did I mention this is MY flowerbox?" - Summer Cat:

In late afternoon, everyone goes out for more fun and games (see "Question of the Day: What are your favorite things to do outdoors on a hot summer afternoon?")

But by 6 pm, everyone is back inside for the night. After eating, they hurry down to the basement to play indoor games like "tag, you're it" and "ambush." Because there is a separate staircase from the basement to the garage, anybody who gets tired of playing games, can run upstairs, climb through the open car windows, and cuddle up on the car upholstery.
