Note: I'm taking part in Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-thon this Saturday, October 18th, but I will not be posting any updates here.
When I'm not reading or cheering, I'll be hanging out on Twitter and Instagram. Come say hi!

keeping watch


  1. What a gorgeous cat! What would life be without a window?!

  2. Wouldn't it be nice to be a well cared for cat with a place to sprawl by the window. I think I'll pretend to be that today.

  3. Aww... I love cats. I´m allergic... but still loving. Interesting tittle. I really admire the loyalty and the persistence of the animals. Know... I heard about a dog that became legend there in japan. He was always waiting for "his human". And when the human died, he stood there, waiting... and died months ago. They made a statue of the dog or something.

  4. Your kitty is just beautiful, and is obviously watching something quite interesting...

  5. Thank you Danielle and Laura! We think he's pretty adorable, but then we're rather partial!

    booklogged, I hope you did have a day sprawled by the window, with a good book at hand. :)

    Lone Wolf, yes, it was in the 1920s and the dog was called 'Hachiko'. Now there is a statue and it's become a popular meeting place- people say let's meet at Hachiko. Click here for more info.

  6. Oh, so pretty. Your kitty has really grown! I love the way they're drawn to windows; everything seems to fascinate cats. Did I tell you about the day our black kitty, Spooky, startled a little and I saw a glimpse of yellow? I assumed she'd seen a butterfly and looked up without any great expectation . . . and a gorgeous hawk with golden breast feathers swooped into the tree outside our kitchen window. I told her she earned her keep for noticing the hawk and drawing my attention to the window, that day!

  7. Oh he's getting big!!! And beautiful too.

    I so miss having a cat.
