Ms Kitty enjoyed

a few days of sunshine and

basked in semi-shade



on the patio
void of chairs since windy rains

have been predicted

The rains arrived here in Southern California around 2am Friday morning. It drizzled most of yesterday then in the late afternoon thunder & lightning accompanied heavier rains that continued throughout the night. It's very wet out this morning & this weather system is expected to continue through the day and overnight ... clearing tomorrow. I'm hoping my pansies survive.

Now that I've created a second account for Happily Retired Gal here at Blogger, I'm considering consolidating my ID when visiting (rather than maintaining a virtual 'split' personality) so I'm going to experiment with that today. Hope you like my 'new look' ...

Great shots of your critters, shadowsna dn reflections.

Carletta's Captures said...

Love the exclusion shot of Ms.Kitty!
Wonderful reflections!

Serendipity said...

I also really like the exclusion shot!

Ralph said...

The fur on Kitty is an almost iridescent black. So the shadows overhead this handsome feline do not alter the color - they enhance it! Molly looks as pretty as ever as she trots into the shadowy alley.

I like the edit on the retailer - the artistic look of color and shadow is wonderful...

Dimple said...

Nice shots all! I like the exclusion effect, and the tiny bits of shade on Ms Kitty.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Great pictures of your babies, Virginia... I am sorry to hear that the rains are coming back to your area.

We had rain here for two days and then a dusting of snow last night... I'm ready for some sunshine.
Hugs,
Betsy

Nice shots! I love the exclusion effect, really nice. And the reflections in the REI window are wonderful, I like the way the tree reflection mimics the logo. Great catch! Kathy

Tricia said...

Ms Kitty sure is a beauty, very beautiful! Sorry about the rains there. They were calling for snow here yesterday, but it didn't... THANK GOD! There's still a little bit of snow on the ground from the snow storm we had last week.

Nothing beats pets for companionship. Loyal to the bone! Humans are pretty good too! You've been busy getting lots of great photos! Keep 'em coming!

Ms. Kitty certainly seems content. She has a good home and she knows it. :-)

Do she and Molly get along well?

Interesting exclusion effect... makes her look rather spooky.

Happy Shadow Hunting this week!

Richie's 2ts Inspires said...

A wonderful parade of perfect shadows.

Happy SS...

Ginny said...

I hope your pansies don't get drowned! I wish I knew how to do all this computer stuff that you do! Love the pictures of the rear view mirror!!!

Carver said...

Great shots of your cat and also dog. Looks as wet there as here.

jabblog said...

Wonderful stuff, as usual! There is so much variety in your posts and it's always a pleasure to visit. As for animal siblings, that's just an reason we give ourselves for having more than one cat and dog;-) - your babies are very happy having your undivided attention :-)

Stine in Ontario said...

Love your kitty shots! Cool shadows too.

Sweet Repose said...

I once had a beautiful black cat like yours, his name was Wienie...he was a riot to have around, never a dull moment!!!

Dianne said...

Miss Kitty looks regal :)
and Molly looks like a good watchdog

rinzo said...

Great Entry! God Bless!

SquirrelQueen said...

Aw, Ms Kitty is a beauty and an expert with the relaxation technique. I love the exclusion shot. All of your reflection are great. Sorry to hear about all your rain, we have had fog for what seems like forever.

Hey Harriet said...

What a wonderful selection of photos you shared today! I love your Ms Kitty. Kitty became a little shy by the second pic. Sweet! Have a great week!

Ms. Kitty looks like she is enjoying the sun.

LadyFi said...

Great pictures... your cat looks very comfortable basking in the sun!

Cassie said...

Enjoyed seeing all your terrific shadows. S.California is the perfect place for shadow shots!

Diane AZ said...

Lovely Ms Kitty in the shadows. I like Exclusion effect. I see you got some rain. We're having a lot of rain and fog in Tucson this morning.

wanderlust said...

Looks like a nice relaxing day for Miss Kitty!

Paz said...

Perfect shots! Yes, I hear it's been raining in your neck of the woods. Keep warm and dry. ;-)

Great shots m'dear. Miss Kitty is very sleek. :)

Crafty Green Poet said...

your kitty is beautiful...

awarewriter said...

Nice series. Shows you are having fun and that's the main thing.

ilanadavita said...

A lovely series, especially the photo of your cat behind the door.

James said...

Good reflections and I like the Exclusion effect it's cool. The poster edges work for me sometimes but other times it can be too much. It worked very well for your rainy mirror shot.

Melissa B. said...

Miss Kitty reminds me of a big black cat I had as a kid. What a good lookin' gal she is!

Janie said...

Ms. Kitty looks like she's enjoying her relaxation in the sun. Poor Molly. She really wanted to go on the outing!
Daisy will wait around by the car, too, hoping she won't miss out. She's very disappointed if she doesn't get to go along.
Fun critter photos!

Pam said...

Your photos and thoughts for today are wonderful, thanks for sharing the beauty.
