Snapping photos of cats can be a daunting task at times.
Before EJ could sit comfortably on the floor to try to snap a photo of any cat in the MeowYard, inquisitive Kenggy waddled near.
The compact camera wrist strap was dangling.
Standing upright using both her stumps, Kenggy caught the strap unceremoniously and stuff it in her mouth.
You may ask why was EJ slow in preventing it? Well, EJ was off-balanced though seated and Kenggy placed both her stumps on EJ. Her stumps are just skin covering bones. It hurt and EJ dared not move for fear that Kenggy may fall.
Slowly, very slowly the strap was removed. Tanya came to check out what the commotion was about. That marked the end of photo session for the day.
EJ was tired out.

They were caught in this position. No, they did not fight.
Soon the rest joined in this weird silent gathering. Our human is still perplexed as to what this is about. Perhaps they all were trying to sit in the best sunbeam spot possible.
Or are they brewing something for or against their human?

Rather than throwing an old litter tray with a cover, EJ found another use for it. The cover was reused to double as a step up to the hardwood podium lounge as well as a mini one-cat den.
The weight of the cats constantly using it as stepping stool caused some of the ventilation strips to break off.
Captain Jack Sparrow HAWK found another use for that breakage – as a peeping hole!

Living together harmoniously in the same house, our human put importance on warmth and love, give and take, at rest, in play as well as meal times.
For breakfast, each cat has their own share of kibbles in their own bowls. 'Tea' is wet food, either chicken or fish, in the evening, also in their own bowls.
A short while later would be dinner. Dinner is different. The cats share eating out from two bowls, at times from one bowl. From this, they learn patience and tolerance.
The hierarchical structure here is noticeable. The oldest, Tanya, the matriarch, eats first while the rest wait patiently for their turn.
And EJ loves them all for their patience, tolerance and love.
