Seabright cats, a warm day, and remembering those in harms way

This was an amazingly warm and clear day here on the California coast.

The early part of the day was in the Seabright neighborhood of Santa Cruz, mostly reading and working, but also enjoying wandering the streets and the area by the beach. I got a glimpse of this cat in one of the apartment complexes near the beach.

This photo is actually from a previous encounter with the “Seabright Kitty”, he/she wasn't in the mood to be photographed today…

Someone else, on the other hand, was quite photogenic:

This is Bella, who resides with my friend and colleague Synthia Payne, whom readers may remember from the UCSC DANM exhibition and Ninjam performances.

Luna of course continues to enjoy her favorite indoor activites:

I actually did take Luna outside briefly yesterday on her harness, and all she wanted to do was head back to the door and go inside. I'm not going to argue.

Like I said, it was exceptionally warm today:

Great for us here in Santa Cruz, but it part of the same warm, dry weather in which the fires in Southern California continue to burn out of control. This years fires in San Diego and the areas in and around Los Angeles might be even worse than the devastiing fires in 2003, with so many people and animals evacuating (over half a million so far) and so many more in harms way.

We at CatSynth want to take a few minutes on this Tuesday to send out thoughts to all the humans, cats, and other animals threatened by this disaster, and hope they make it through safely.

  1. Luna prefers to stay inside and not to visit these nice black cats ?
    I didn't know that the fires were so important ! I have seen a bit on TV but didn't know that so many people were involved. How awful !

  2. My uncle (my Mommie's twin brother) and his family live in Orange County and they are watching hour by hour to see if they will have to evacuate. I am very worried about them.

  3. You take exceptional photos of cats: there is a quality about them that I especially enjoy. The heat there would be unbearable for me (and my cats), whether dry or not. I have been watching the fires on TV and satellite in horror. I hope there is a way to live with nature and not against it so that people and animals don't suffer like this again.
