  • This photo is from several weeks ago. There was a heat wave, and I took my fans out of storage way early. The cats love plastic bags - love to play in them, love to fight in them, love to lie down in them. This time was no exception.

    (And no, I never allow them to play with plastic bags unsupervised. And yes, I removed this guy from this bag right after I took the photo. Accompanied by bitter objections from him.)
