Smitten with Kitten

Over the weekend, a trip to a local jeweler to replace a watch battery introduced me to Rocky, a ferociously frisky feline.Rocky the kitten
Rocky’s cat mom had abandoned him and he was adopted by his human “mom” Kate who was feeding at the family-run jewelry store where she works — easy to do as Kate’s mom owns the store.

After lunch, Rocky posed (very) briefly for some close-ups.Rocky closeupsBut preferred to scamper around the store. stopping to play IMG_0757with “grandma’s” dog, after all, it’s a family business with pets allowed.
This encounter came soon after fellow blogger John (Don’t unplug your hub) had an encounter with a BIG cat which he luckily caught on video. Multi-talented John paints, sings, plays guitar and is planning to write a book which he gladly “talks” about on his blog. And, John cautions “there will be bad language” so readers are forewarned.
Blue is a very cute kitten who can be seen at fellow blogger Mildred’s Maple Lane site.

Carrying a camera along is always a great thing as Sandra, proudly known as the MadSnapper agrees. You never know when a photo op will happen, even if it’s not an award-winning shot. it’s ALL about having FUN !

The camera used was a Canon IMG_0776PowerShot SD1300IS digital Elph, one of many Canon Elph models. This one has a 12.1 MP, 4X zoom canon elph (3)with a 28mm wide angle lens. It’s not great for action shots (Rocky was moving in this one on the right) or long-distance zooming, but VERY compact, fun and easy to use.  And it’s almost always taken along with me, cause you never know.
COMING UP this weekend (Sunday) is Grenville’s birthday; the following week is granddaughter Elizabeth’s 1st. We will be celebrating with family in PA and then RI. That’s right, it's Another road trip coming up.

Sorry I missed your calls. Maybe this week we can catch up.

Love this sweet baby and know he will be spoiled rotten.

Have a safe trip and early birthday wishes to Grenville.

You know I love the kitten! Reminds me of Blue. I hate when I forget to take my camera with me when I leave home! Happy Birthday to Grenville and little Elizabeth. Have fun and safe travel.

Another road trip for two very special occasions. Loved reading this post. I know John but do not know the others, and will enjoy checking out their links. Lovely post, lovely kitties, lovely camera.
And a Happy Birthday to Grenville and to Elizabeth.

What a cute kitten :-)

Those small cameras are perfect to bring anywhere. The one I bought at an auction is slightly to big I'm afraid. It doesn't fit in a pocket so I always have to carry it in my hand :-)

Have a great day!

Makes me want to get another kitten, but I don't think that C.B. (my Siamese) would like the idea!

Happy Birthday to Grenville and Elizabeth!

Safe journey!

AHHHHhhhhhhhh. So CUTE!
But then I am easily kitten smitten as my 4 guys will tell you. That little guy isn't the only sucker in town!
But he is probably the cutest one!
