This little owl just dropped by for an unexpected visit! He flew into the window (it was dark, so not sure why) and had to lay on his back taking deep breaths to recover. But he eventually got up and flew away! #owl #wildlife #bird #birds #hoot #aww #cute

It's Didi's gotchaday! One year ago today, Charlie got a little sister. Now we can't imagine not having this little cuddle bug who tries to pack herself in my bags and still climbs all over us regardless of what we're (trying to be) doing. #cats #kittens #adoption #pets #happygotchaday

Got my hands on some more gems from my grandmother's collection...more to come! The story behind this, one of my favorites, is pretty interesting. USS Le Jeune - The back reads: "The ship Cliff [my grandfather] was on when I [my grandmother] met him - Came back to port after being hit with a suicide bomber." I grew up hearing the story of the kamikaze attack but I don't ever remember seeing a photo of the actual ship. ...And as I'm writing this it turns out the caption is incorrect and that was a different ship. However I do have a photo of that one somewhere too and I'll be sure to post it later. BUT this ship has a really cool story too! According to Wikipedia, this ship was originally German and named "Windhuk,” and was sabotaged (like crazy severely sabotaged) by her crew when they learned she was to be interned after Brazil cut ties with Germany. The US government bought the ship from Brazil in 1942 and renamed her "Lejeune (AP-74)" after USMC General John Archer Lejeune. #wwii #history #usslejeune #worldwar2 #navy #ships #ship #ocean #war #german #windhuk #brazil #kamikaze

These photos were taken by my grandfather from his ship (an aircraft carrier) during WWII. In a harbor somewhere in Shanghai, merchants lined up to trade with American sailors. The disreputable ones got driven away with a fire hose. #wwii #wwiihistory #shanghai #navy #boats #blackandwhite #history

They're both so dang cute! 😍 Ellie took a quick break in the middle of all her hard work for @miscdelightsco to give in to Didi's cuddly wiles. #cat #momma #catmomma #catsofinstagram #didithesteltz

And then there's this one, with her quiet elegance and contentment. I never thought I'd become this much of a cat person, reading into their personalities, but it's pretty fascinating! #cat #catsofinstagram #sircharlesthesteltz #actuallyqueencharlie #contentment #elegance
