I walk past this kitten every morning on my way to work, along with another (a sibling, presumably?) with whom he or she shares an Upper East Side pet store window.

This is how we spend Valentine’s Day here. I didn’t get a chance to photograph the chocolates because Liz and I ate them too fast. Pizza is on its way now.

Hope you’re having a good one.

Liz and I went to visit our parents in the Philly suburbs for Easter, which also gave us a chance to check in with Buffy, who move in with my folks since January.

What was initially intended as a cat-sitting visit turned into long-term residence because she seemed so much happier there. I think at her age (we think around 14) and temperament, the quieter surroundings suit her. She also never got along with Max, who is nine years younger and can be kind of a bully.

As you can see, Buffy’s favorite activities include lounging on sofas, lounging on the rocking chair, and lounging in sunbeams. It’s nice to see she’s doing well.

Also great, of course, to see my family and a couple of friends. My aunt was in town as well, and she and Liz and I had the ride back to NYC on New Jersey Transit to catch up. Pretty good way to salvage a weekend that began with an epic stomach virus on Thursday night. Happy Easter, everybody.

I realized last night that this blog features a dearth of cat photos. I don’t want to lose my Internet license, so here’s one.

I swear I woke up with him in this position next to me.  No one posed him this way.
