Daily Sketch Reprise: Love Cats, 2012

Daily Photo: Easy Sunday With Giuseppe As Pillow

Mewsette and Bean use their brother as a pillow for a long afternoon nap after a very tiring weekend, for me at least. Kitty bellies do make good pillows, I’ll agree with that. If it’s your purring sibling it must be like heaven. . . . . . . .

Published on August 22, 2014 in daily sketch

They had to work for their dinner tonight! I went into the kitchen—some time before dinner—and this huge mass of black cats moving around on the cabinet just had to be expressed. It’s a difficult angle because there is little room on either side of the cabinet and they were

Daily Photo: Am I Cute Enough?

Bean practices his utter cuteness by stopping me in my tracks as I walk through a doorway. A great way to enter the weekend! . . . . . . . What other photos did I feature around this date? Maximum Capacity One-and-one-half Cats, 2013 In terms of actual physics,
