Daily Photo: A Puzzling Puzzle

There are three cats on this chair, but it’s hard to tell at first which body parts make up which cat. They have actually managed to fit four cats onto this chair at other times, but you can see that even three makes for a tight fit. This is brothers Jelly Bean and Mr. Sunshine, and Bella, who loves Mr. Sunshine and always tries to be near him. Well, she’s smashed in there against the arm of the chair, but she doesn’t seem in any discomfort.

Time to catch up with the photos you’ve been missing! This photo is from November 1. I hope to be able to keep up with things from here!

Big and little, no longer camouflaged in summer grass. The trees are dropping leaves by the bucket today.

For the women who fought and even died for my right to do this, I vote. For all those who fought to create and maintain this democracy, I vote. For all those who even today fight to get democracy, I vote. For my immigrant grandparents who couldn’t even imagine what democracy was coming from a life so different, I vote, and I thank them for their courage to come here so that I can enjoy this basic privilege of democracy. Do it! Not just for you but for so many others!

I voted.

“We are not amused.”
Not Mewsette nor Mimi nor Giuseppe nor Sienna thought it was funny when I offered some of my soup for lunch.

They don't like my lunch.

It’s blurry, but I couldn’t pass up the serious instruction by Mimi so that Mariposa would know the importance of immediately getting into an open dresser drawer with nice cushy sweaters by whatever means necessary.

“Hi. Whatcha doin? Do you see my big white mittens?”
Mariposa is eager to help no matter what I’m doing.

Big cuddle puddle behind the door. It’s like they’re crawling back into the womb. Mimi is glad that’s just a metaphor, though.

Basil and Mimi enjoyed a wonderful sunny morning yesterday. This doesn’t happen until nearly all the leaves fall, and we miss the leaves but we love the sun.

A great spot for a cozy nap on a cold rainy day. Guess I’ll put the towels away another time. Mimi had a little urinary issue late last week, similar to last year at the same time. I called my vet and Dr. Michelle and treated her symptoms. She cleared up quickly and in the evening was well enough to come out from her warm spot to run and hop into the wardrobe just as I was about to put the towels away. “Me, sick? Surely you mean some other cat. I’m fine.” She does need to have her senior exam soon though.

Three rescued cats inside a warm kitchen on a cold, cold, rainy day. Keeping an eye on my lunch. Sienna, Hamlet and Basil.

So Bella is an avid birdwatcher. She spends long hours by the big north window watching the birds at the feeder. I spend long hours studying her profile while she does so. I decided to finally sketch her and thought of the toned paper with white and black charcoal, and I also added a bit of pale yellow green in her eye. Read more and purchase.
