Queen of the Island

The other day, my daughter was arranging cat mint (catnip) on the kitchen island to dry. Storm thought it smelled so wonderful that she climbed up onto the island and rolled in the remaining bits and pieces.  Ever since then, she has taken to lounging, where else, but on the center island in our kitchen.  (We also seem to have cured her of her resistance to jumping as she now jumps up there all the time.)  Here is where I found her this morning.  I think she has a new perch.

Resting Comfortably...

On Friday last, Merlin finally passed his bill of health, got his boosters and could be let out of his quarantine area.  We were going to keep him in his room until he could get himself out and therefore put him back behind the fence, but he made such pitiful noises, we broke down and gave him the run of the house.  As you can see, he is making himself quite at home in his expanded surroundings. I took this picture on July 7th.
