I was reorganizing my office/shop room, but someone was napping on the edge of a stack of boxes so I had to work around her. Bella gets herself into some of the most interesting poses, legs everywhere.
Today’s studiosupurrvisor is sending me a subtle message. Mimi sleeps behind the monitor on the nice warm computer. But that doesn’t mean she’s not keeping me under control.
Photos from years past
Daily Photo: You’re So Funny!, 2018
Continuing Basil’s basket bizarrity, he apparently has a good laugh on my behalf after giving him a belly rub. Actually, I don’t know when I’ve ever photographed such a purrfect cat yawn, whiskers and all. He was having so much fun in the basket I found it hard to stop. Then he got all innocent on me. He really knows how to pull my strings.

Boxes and Baskets and Birdwatching
Basil on a pile of papers, Giuseppe in a box, Hamlet in his favorite basket, lots of sunshine, breezes, and a great station on Cat TV. Cats don’t need fancy things to celebrate World Cat Day, just as long as they have things they like EVERY day. Or else.
When the kids grow up but don’t leave.
This is what happens when the kids grow up but don’t move away, 10 years old and still playing with mom’s tail.
Mimi is downloading her pee-mail, apparently there’s been quite the discussion about something.

What other photos have I shared on or around this date?
Wordless Wednesday: Basil’s Afternoon Nap, Position 4, 2015
I Heard There Was A Meeting…
“Did someone call a meeting, about…kittens?” Giuseppe asks, joining Mr. Sunshine and Mewsette. The little ones have been permitted an hour or two in the first and second floors of the house. The door to the basement is blocked, and whoever is down there looking out the basement door is kind of stuck, as is whoever is upstairs with…the kittens. Actually, it’s gone really well. Each kitten has a favorite spot and spends lots of time looking out the windows and doors in ones, twos and threes. The big cats might complain, but they also herd the kittens around and give them little licks. This scene happened after the kittens had invaded a really good nap on my work table.
Below, however, Giuseppe and Bean stuff themselves into a small peach box. It seems they are invisible to kittens when they are in the box. Well, they make the rules around here.

Today’s photos from Instagram and Facebook
And three kittens held perfectly still for a record 18 seconds. Cat TV taken to a whole new level.
Alvina found it first, but the others soon joined her. They seem to have an unspoken communication where they all come together when it’s something important. Like a bright red bird, right there, on the feeder!
