Feeding Darcy

My friend Mary had to go out of town and a bunch of us are taking turns feeding her cat Darcy. This morning was my turn. I thought Mary might like to see pictures of him, and know that he’s okay. I don’t know how to fix that reflecting eye thing, alas. But aside from the obvious “I miss mom” look, he is alive and well!

In the first shot he’s sitting with the pile of toys I tried to tempt him with. No go. He was more like, “We barely know each other and you expect me to play with you? No. I’m going to sit right here and stare at you, thank you very much.” In the second shot he’s staring at me from the TV. (Actually, we got close, and I had him purring away. No cat can resist me.) I wanna get me a siamese cat.
