#Feline Friday--Karen Rose Smith's #Cats This Week 6/19

This was a "lazy" week in the Smith household as the furry inhabitants seemed to settle in their favorite spots for the "hazy-lazy" days of summer. As you can see above, Miss Paddington was ever-vigilant from her favorite resting spot--on top of the refrigerator. The rest of the crew seems to have fallen into a summertime routine of eating and sleeping...eating and sleeping...until Paddington decides it's play time!  

Zoie Joy cools off with an on-her-back
pose that says, "Please rub my tummy!"
Paddy strikes the same
pose while resting with
Halo as if to say, "Turn
up the air conditioning,

Halo sleeps soundly
regardless of the time or
London waits for hubby to settle on the
bed for an afternoon snooze. 
Mason's (Paddy's brother)
adopted parents even shared a
snapshot of him waking from
a snooze on his favorite condo. 
Sunnybud takes refuge in the cat shelter during
an afternoon thunderstorm.

Father suspects?

Could either of these two visitors to our backyard be the father of Halo's kittens?  Regardless of who their father is the kittens have the regal demeanor of Arthur, the independence of Sunnybud and the quiet gentleness of Halo.


Happy Father's Day to all fathers who have instilled their best qualities in their children.


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.
