Daily Photo: Point of View

Point of View
Point of View

So we have three cats all looking in different directions…no, we have two, one is a reflection. Is Mariposa’s reflection a part of reality, or just a reflection of the moment? So whose point of view prevails here? I put the focus on Mariposa reflected in the mirror. In the meantime, Basil and I will continue on with our existential crisis.

Fancy boys enjoying their morning nap.  Basil, Hamlet.

Ah, fresh air and warm sunshine and the sounds of little critters right outside the door. Bella, Mimi, Jelly Bean, Mewsette, Mariposa.

Five at the door.

Artful Considerations, 2018

Is Mewsette having creative thoughts? Well, she is a Creative Cat! I love using the window and the vase of brushes as a backdrop. The sun is streaming in and reflects off my white drafting table so Mewsette is well illuminated. What an inspiration.

Hamlet is VERY long and slender, especially when it’s hot.

Out in the Yard With Mom, 2017

The two girls headed for the lush and dewy back yard.

Later, Mimi found the picnic bench for a sunbath…

Later still, Mewsette simply looked absolutely beautiful…

Yesterday, when I ran out of time to post, I shared a buttercups photo of Mimi, “The sun came out.”

Later in the day when the sun moved over the house it came flooding the dining room window, causing a group sunbath.

The gathering.

Also, looks like our home decorating squirrel has been at it again. Pillow stuffing is gone, pillow cover tangled in the tree. Squirreled again.

Bella Just Can’t Be Any Cuter!, 2016

The feet in the air and...no head.
The feet in the air and…no head.

I just can’t figure out which photo is cuter! I decided to post all four.

Bella was totally enjoying herself in the grapes box with her new favorite mousie, the tiger stripe, now that she has banished the violet mousie for some infraction (I keep finding it stuffed behind the cat tree).

First it was the paws in the air that I saw from the corner of my eye and quickly got a photo—hind paws in the air, front paws in the air, and the mousie where her face should be! She was tossing it in the air and catching it!

Then she got distracted by a bird outside the window…

Looking around a bit.

And then she saw me stand up and look into the box, and that was even funnier!

One green eye.
One green eye.

Once she realized I’d seen her she was all about putting herself back together, but I saw her in action!

Time to get out of here!
Time to get out of here!

I’ve been off of posting for a week again, but I’ll be starting up again this weekend. I had two huge design jobs in here at one time, and while I usually schedule around that I had no way of reorganizing things this time. My library will be 115 years old on May 1, and that’s been a pretty big deal to prepare for and to celebrate this weekend, one of the big projects.

Also, Hamlet and Ophelia are finally really exploring and getting accustomed to the household instead of hiding most of the time they are out, which is most of the day, and are no longer frightened of me with my camera. They needed some supervision since I didn’t want them to revert to being traumatized by things like loud noises or unexpected encounters with the other cats. I’ll update on that this weekend!

"Did I miss the Easter Bunny? I wanted to play with him!" Basil is very disappointed! Can't pass up an opportunity for a good cat-in-a-yellow-basket photo.
“Did I miss the Easter Bunny? I wanted to play with him!” Basil is very disappointed! Can’t pass up an opportunity for a good cat-in-a-yellow-basket photo.

Basil must have thought the yellow basket was a gift for him because he owned it from the day it came into the house, which was the day I was running errands and saw it…atop someone’s trash pile. I sprayed it down and rinsed it in the basement and let it air dry, then brought it up to the magic basket spot, and Basil was immediately IN THE BASKET, looking totally cute, big, long, white whisker and all.
