The West Orange Observer today had an article that featured a photo of downtown (Plant Street looking west) from 70 years ago; technology now (Google Street View) lets me sit here and capture almost the same view!
Margaret recently decided it had been long enough with no cat in our home, and arranged to visit two “rescue” cats nearby (through Candy Cats); there was a pair who had to be adopted together … we then learned that the pair had been outdoor strays and had had a litter of kittens, with just one now left un-adopted … of course it ended up that we adopted all three! Here they are being collected:
Top left is the boy “Jack Jack”; top right is the easily scared and very fluffy girl “Jenny” (called “Jill” when we picked them up, but Margaret renamed her) … bottom left is the kitten “Flora”.
Here are the three a week later, when they were settled enough to be out and about – very much favoring Margaret (maybe because she feeds them?!):
And here’s an assortment of all three of them, over the last month …
By now, some five weeks since we picked them up, Jenny is still scared of many things (including standing up, and shoes!) while Jack Jack and Flora are bothered by very little … no doubt they will be keeping us busy for a long time.
Our drive today spotted a number of Alligators, but mostly only heads in water; there were a few better views – including a pair together where one swam a circle around the other while we watched!
And a couple photos of flowers and birds:
