The Caracita and some of her favorite cats

I get a lot of emails asking me what or who Caracita is.
Caracita is the silly name I call my absolutely wonderful rescue dog, Cara, and Cara is my blog mascot! (Don't tell her - she might start demanding premium dog food in return!)

This is her favorite place to nap.  She likes to keep an eye on what's going on outside (and then growl at every chipmunk, dog, and tricycle-riding child that goes by.  Like me, she could benefit from a good pair of glasses).

When we visit my parents, her favorite resting spot is Paco the Chihuahua's bed.
Paco does not appreciate Cara's bed-stealing ways.

And just for fun, a few kitties.
This is my little Delilah making a weird face sitting in my work bag.  
Cats love all boxes and bags! (And heels too, apparently!  Did you see the picture I posted on Twitter of Heidi sitting in my shoes?)

My parent's cat, Halo, watching bugs and frogs in their pond.  Isn't he adorable?

Hope everyone had a great Wednesday!  It is starting to cool down around here and it was just beautiful outside today.  Tomorrow is my very last day of class - I am going to miss my students so much!!  I am looking forward to having lots of free time (which means more polishing - plus I just found my Konad stuff!), but I will really miss this great group of students.  I've enjoyed teaching this course so much.

Have a great Thursday (I have a fun patriotic manicure to show you all tomorrow)!

The pic of Halo is priceless. Very beautiful cat's life shot (color, composition and attitude!).

Cara has incredible eyes. I love her face on the first picture. She looks so quiet, present and trustful. I so miss having a pet I am complice with! (By the way, the Chihuahua bed is a tad too small for her, did she ever notice? She looks compact when she's on it. :D)

Awww they are all adorable.
We have a new puppy in our house and everyone is going nuts over it.

They are all gorgeous, Cara especially (I'm more of a dog person, that's all).
Next time she steals Paco's bed you might want to subtly let her know that it's not the most slimming accessory for her :D
