#Feline Friday--Karen Rose Smith's #Cats This Week 6/5

The first week in June has been a relatively quiet feline time in the Smith household. Aside from Miss Paddington's obsession with plastic bags--she will grab one right out of our hands, regardless of its contents and take off through the house with it--there have been no new crises or needed interventions this week. Although it is becoming apparent that the feline population is not respecting the "for humans only" rule regarding kitchen surfaces. Could some feline behavioral therapy be needed to remedy the problem?  

London sneaks a counter-top snack
when Paddy is otherwise distracted.
Zoie watches from the kitchen counter as
Paddington and Halo race through the kitchen.

Paddy decides she likes my serving tray before
I can find a place to store it in the kitchen.

Paddy's favorite spot--on top of the refrigerator--gives
her a panoramic view of the kitchen.

Paddy takes a rare moment from one of her energetic
escapades to quietly reflect...probably on which
of her furry sisters she wants to bother next.

Sunny stops in the vegetable garden to see if any
of the tomatoes have blossoms yet before he heads
out for the evening.

Sunnybud enjoys some of the garden
scenery while he waits for his
morning meal.

And Halo sleeps quietly...dreaming of how lucky she is
to have finally found a forever home.

Until next week...



In my Caprice De Luca Home Staging mystery series, my sleuth Caprice takes in stray cats and dogs and finds them forever loving homes!

USA TODAY Bestselling Author Karen Rose Smith is an only child who delved into books at an early age. She learned about kindred spirits from Anne of Green Gables, solved mysteries with Nancy Drew and wished she could have been the rider on The Black Stallion. Yet even though she escaped often into story worlds, she had many aunts, uncles and cousins around her on weekends. Her sense of family and relationships began there. Maybe that's why families are a strong theme in her novels, whether mysteries or romances. Her 87th novel will be released in 2015.

Readers often ask her about her pastimes. She has herb, flowers and vegetable gardens that help her relax. In the winter, she cooks rather than gardens. And year round she spends most of her time with her husband, as well as her four rescued cats who are her constant companions. They chase rainbows from sun catchers, reminding her life isn't all about work, awards and bestseller lists. Everyone needs that rainbow to chase.

Karen looks forward to interacting with readers. They can find her at the links below.
