Cats in the Kitchen

In attempt to follow up my previous post on "Do you allow your cats on the table?" topic.

As some of you probably know, I have a cooking site - EnjoyYourCooking. I post a new recipe there pretty much every saturday for 4+ years now...

To make recipes more descriptive and easier to follow, I include photos to each step. The process of setting up scenery, light, background and making photos would probably be long and boring if I didn't have helpers. Cat helpers that is.

They make sure that all ingredients are up to high standards of EYC, everything is in order and such... I honestly couldn't do this without them. See for yourself:

Shiva decided that Fried Rice with Shrimps needs one shrimp less for better results:

So this is the secret ingredient of EYC recipes, now you know it...

Coons, Tabletop Position

Do you allow your cats on the table? Ha-ha. I think that the right question to ask here (when it gets to cats) is: Do your cats allow you to the table?..

And answers will vary...

We may need to think on getting a bigger table if cats plan to grow any bigger...

Happy Friday Everyone!

Stalone, The Mebius Cat

By Stalone, the maine coon

Stalone, as many other cats besides him, loves to lay in various spine challenging poses. Or at least that is what I think every time I look at him doing something like following:

Back paw fists are optional, but still are so cute.

By the way, this ledge is on a second floor level, along the main hallway, with no rails, or such... Cats love it, of course...

Mastering Art of Window Climbing

By Shiva, the maine coon

Since a time she was little, Shiva doesn't seem to be not very graceful in her movements. She slips, she falls, she always some how manages to trip over her own legs (and she has 4!)...

Yuriy says that it is probably because she is pretty long, so sometimes she is like a furry centipede one side legs of which don't always coordinate right with legs on another side. Mostly when she is in on a hunt to catch a toy.

But then this clumsy fur ball does something like this:

It remains unknown what motivated her to go on that window climbing adventure. Knowing her skills of gracefulness I was afraid that it may end up badly, but it didn't. And now we have this funny photo and a video somewhere on a phone to go along with it.

To Be a Cat

With all things going on in the world, the only thing I want to do is to step back and focus on simple things...

Today I was looking through photos and found this one:

Cats somehow always make me think of calmness and serenity, no mater what goes on around them. Sometimes I want to be a cat...
