Daily Sketch Reprise: Their Faces in the Sun, 2013

Mimi and Mewsette settled in the sun from the window on the landing, both of them enjoying the wash of the warm light on their faces as the shadows crept up over their backs. Often, big soft Mewsette settles somewhere and soon I see little Mimi tucked up against her,

Daily Photo: A Sunny Window

Mewsette enjoyed a nice long sunbath at the dining room window this afternoon. It’s a purr-fect spot when the sun comes in, toasty warm and a great view of the birds and squirrels and chipmunks at the feeder right outside the window. Sometimes I get these inscrutable looks from Mewsette

Daily Sketch Reprise: Milling, 2013

I watched them milling around my legs like koi in a pond, waiting for some action on a day when I was up and down and all over the house and they followed me, anticipating my next move. I pictured them, colorful, on a dark background, loose and active, a

Daily Photo Reprise: Catnip Tea?! 2013

You made tea out of perfectly good catnip? And what’s worse: YOU HAVE YOUR OWN PERSONAL STASH OF CATNIP? I can’t believe you would betray us this way—a jar full of the best leaf in the house, and you keep it to yourself, and you make TEA?! . . .

Purr Therapy

During the week before last, three days after Mimi quit eating, she followed me to the studio in the evening and settled on a box on my work table. Nothing strange about that, except that she bypassed her favorite water bowl and did not groom and prepare herself for a

Daily Photo Reprise: Catnip Party, 2011

Three of the girls organize an impromptu catnip party on the sunny landing. Cookie was enjoying the catnip candy cane first, and invited Mimi and Mewsette to take turns biting, licking and rubbing their faces on the upstairs catnip candy cane. Cookie gets her turn. Then it’s time for Mewsette

Daily Photo: Find Your Own Bed

I stripped the bed to change it and it was suddenly irresistible. The only place to sleep was on the clean bedspread that hadn’t even been spread on the bed yet. Would you brave these four expressions to not only move them but completely undo their little world? They are

Daily Sketch Reprise: Sitting in the Dark, 2014

I turned around from my drafting table and there as Mewsette, quietly sitting in the corner behind the door where it had grown quite dark. All I could see of her was a highlight here and there made by my worklight and, of course, her eyes. The furnace was running

Poem for Spring: Mewsette Ponders Green

The world alight in green shades more than I have brilliant life given giving and glows in spring showers on all I love. A little abstract ode to spring to accompany a little sort of abstract photo of Mewsette pondering the green plate, showers on her nose, and it does

Daily Sketch(es) Reprise: Indigo Nap and Bath, and Mewsette and Giuseppe’s Reviews

This is Mewsette going about being Mewsette on my bed. I actually started four paintings of her, but just after beginning two of them certain brothers decided they would rather I paint a wrestling match, though Mewsette was not in the mood for that. Finally I distracted them and painted
