It is traditional for a bishop to have a cathedra, or chair/throne, in which to sit when s/he exercises episcopal ministry. I don't really have one, but I am happy to announce that the bishop's cat now has a CAThedra. I helped a friend move in with his significant other today, and they were giving away some items, and talked me into taking a trunk. Charles has decided to make it his throne:

Friday Cat Blogging

Today, I thought I would post pictures of the cats as they frequently appear. Here is Charles, on his hind legs guiding my fingers holding a cat treat to his mouth with his front paws:

I hope his end is not destruction, and I don't think his glory is his shame, but another part of Philippians 3:19 certainly applies to Charles!

Allie loves to sit on the chairs in the chapel:
In the morning, I sometimes have to have my breviary in one hand, and my other petting her!

Friday the 13th Cat Blogging

Chris Tessone posted a picture of Mahler blocking access to the Anglican Breviary. Allie, in contrast, reads a section from it and then meditates on it:

Charles saw me taking a picture of Allie and was jealous, so I took a picture of him as well:

Friday Cat Blogging a couple of days late

First, a friend who was moving ended up leaving most of his books with me. One of the books is "The Life and Times of St. Francis", and both Charles and Allie seem to know that St. Francis is the patron saint of animals, because each of them at different times today took a nap lying on top of it.

Second, the dish that Charles has his head in contained catnip. Allie was actually roughly where he was (there was another dish on the floor with Charles' catnip), but Charles chased her away to take her catnip. I can only assume that the wild party held by the potsmokers across the hall influenced him to behave this way. I'm glad to see that Allie did come back to sleep on the arm of the couch.
