Do better with closing the damn doors
Not really an option in this heat. I was more thinking along the lines of: what can be done to educate the butterflies?

After all, both cats and I are above insects in the food chain. We have a God-given right to end the life of lesser creatures, much as God has taken the right to himself to end our lives arbitrarily.

And you can call me an insectist, if you will, for not treating all insects the same...

Sorry. You're still a co-conspirator.

@Erich_H Erik, who is this 'god' person you speak of ... ;) :rofl:
Well, I'm of course speaking in simplified terms here. If you like, you can embrace the Buddhist way of looking at things. As do I.

Aiming to continue in this wheel of incarnations. I'm not finished with this playground just yet. Buying more ice cream later today.

After all, we are all part of the same grand entity, in a way. Splinters of the same consciousness.

As in, hooman bed is cat bed. Cat bed is much too small for hooman.

Btw, hooman thinking about going back to hooman bed now. It's been temporarily vacated by the in-house Grand Inquisitioners. Right now they're all milling around in the kitchen, hoping, in vain, for their first brekkie.
Best lie down while the going's good.

Our household gods are happily asleep on top of each other, and a couple of warm wheat bags ... e.g. from a little time ago

Bounce flash off our sloping, stained cathedral ceiling. At ISO 3,200, its quite remarkable what can be achieved with the FL-LM3.

The cats last night:

It's easy to see how dilated Lizzie's pupils are compared with Rosa's. Lizzie is almost blind in low light now, but she seems to manage OK.

Honorio (4 years yellow male) and Diana ( 1 year white female), get along surprisingly well.

Ha ok. I don’t know what to say other than if you can somehow manage to figure out how to train butterflies, call up National Geographic for your documentary.
In terms of God, isn’t it odd that the world operates exactly as you would expect if there was no God?

That flash is a great upgrade over the old ones that couldn’t bounce or twist
Those cats remind me of stocky Russian Blues
Very handsome

Blue Burmese have either or both British Blue or Russian Blue in their genetic lineage.

Brown Burmese are a cross between seal point Siamese and Havana Brown.

Ours get the agouti gene for red, black and white fur colours and the tortoiseshell bilateral asymmetry from outcrossing a Blue Burmese to a tortoiseshell (experimental sub-register), then breeding back to full register status.

And thank you. They are certainly fine healthy specimens, having survived (so far) to over 20 y.o.

The photo is best viewed at its largest size on mobile devices, otherwise it looks too dark.

That's exactly like it is meant to operate.
The rules of the game are being willfully obfuscated. And will change as needed.

As the game is played out on innumerable parallel levels simultaneously, only adds to the complexity of the thing. And makes it so much more interesting.

Also, I'm thinking about the butterfly thing. Something Pavlovian leaps into mind.

But the cats are blameless. They are only operating in defence of what is their territory.
At least they are certain about the rules of their game.

You know your cats certainly! Amazing that they are over 20! Good job on your part!
