i had plucked the viola that bloomed in the potted plants' indoor winter quarters and brought it to the dining room so i could sit at the table where the soft light would illuminate all her fine features.
As i readied the camera for a second exposure
Lucy suddenly leaped onto the table
This is certainly not acceptable behavior in this household!
i shoo her away
get ready, again, to snap
when, without a sound
intent on tasting the sweet little thing
i snatch it away
but not before her sharp little teeth
snatch a bite
i am a forceful disciplinarian when it comes
to cats on the table
and i do admit it
of Lucy's cross eyed concentration
did make me laugh
