Mewsette, 2018

Big fluffy Mewsette enjoys a sunbath on the table. I didn’t know whether to pet her plushy fur or stand back and photograph her, so I did both. She looks a little annoyed because I’d stopped petting her to take another photo. So I went back to pet her some more.

We Are Not Amused, 2017

We are not amused.

Mimi has found the old park bench to be an appropriate place from which to view her domain. I think she felt Mewsette was just a little too silly with her antics in the back yard when she joined us again, below. Isn’t she beautiful?

But she started out making funny faces while downloading her pee mail.

That's some message!

And then, most horrifying of all, she engaged in her pole dance routine. Somehow she always manages to find her way to the clothes pole in the patio by the basement door.

In the meantime, Mimi found another use for her bench. What a great scratcher!

And I had posted these photos on Instagram first because the server at my internet host has been having issues for the past few weeks and is being replaced, so sometimes when I have the time to post the server is interminably slow and I just have to give up. But I visualize some of the photos I’ve taken even with my DSLR with Instagram filters. I liked the one of Mimi on the bench filtered but often Instagram reduces the resolution so I worked out how to achieve the same effect in Photoshop. That’s the photo at the top, below is the original photo where I think she stand out more. I like them both! Maybe it’s just because I like Mimi.

We are not amused without the "filter".

Pewter Kitty, 2016

This photo of Ophelia just happened to work out cropped this way. She looks almost abstract, so I removed the color from all but her amber eye.I see some designs coming from this.

Good Morning! 2015
Good Morning!
Good Morning!

The light is great on these early spring mornings before the sun angles upward and the trees sprout their leaves. Poor felines have to wait for their breakfast until I’m done taking pictures! Well, thy just have to work for their food. I know that goes against all felines stand for, but I really think they enjoy the attention they get from it!

From the left, Mr. Sunshine is turned around and bathing himself behind Giuseppe, then Mimi and Bean are in some sort of a little conversation, Bella is next to Bean and Mewsette is washing the top of her head. Bella and Mewsette have been spending some girl time together with little naps and grooming and also wrestling and wild chases around the house.

The fun part for me at mealtime, though, is trying to get a photo with all seven, which is usually not possible because not only is the cabinet a little too small, but they are very busy while they wait—the conditions outside the doors and windows must be monitored and all corners, nooks and crannies of the kitchen must be inspected, so there’s a lot of coming and going and jumping up and down. One of these days I’ll get a video, but having only two hands it’s difficult. They watch me from the cabinet because I am rinsing their dishes in hot water to warm them. Their food comes from the refrigerator and the warm dish helps to bring it to room temperature more quickly, helps the scent of it rise up to their noses, and just makes the meal more enjoyable for them. Then, most exciting, I am putting their food in the bowls and adding things like a probiotic or a supplement depending on the food, and always a little extra warm water, and it smells really good. It takes all their good manners to keep from jumping into the sink and onto the counter and onto me, but they are very, very good kitties.

    Mariposa’s eye look so huge! And I want five or six housepanthers someday; we only have two inside, and one friendly feral. For now. Don’t you think petting a black cat, whose fur is warmed by a sunpuddle, one of the bestest things in the whole wide world?!?

      Mariposa’s eyes are huge! She is very tiny too, though she is about two years old–but she is still bigger than Mimi. The cat we presumed was her mother gave birth to two kittens the day after I trapped her last year, one died the next day, and the other lived nine weeks but had the same huge eyes as Mariposa. There was so much illness and inbreeding there that I’m surprised Mariposa survived. But she did survive, in a big way!

      I do love petting black cats! Can you imagine petting five at one time? Or more?!
