Daily Photo Reprise: Mewsette the Big Little Sister, 2011

Cookie and Mewsette

A sweet one from 2011…

Mewsette always makes these little overtures to Cookie, and you can see by Cookie’s reaction that it’s not entirely well-received. You can also see that Mewsette is easily twice as big as Cookie and can take a beating from a senior tortie girl who acts as if she doesn’t need anything. Mewsette apparently loves her little big sister, and knows it’s all just an act.

Cookie doesn’t know, but Mewsette curls up next to her on the bed after Cookie has fallen asleep, and Cookie certainly appreciates Mewsette’s warmth, even if she’s not awake to know it.

Here are a few images of Mewsette keeping watch over Cookie as she slept: Big and Little Sisters and Copy Cats, and cuddling with her when she wasn’t feeling well: A Loyal Sister and Cookie Says Thank You. Cookie did grow to appreciate big, warm, soft Mewsette, as seen in Cookie’s Blessing.

    That happens around here all the time. Kitties will be curled next to another they don’t get along with and never the difference. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

      Janet, Cookie was the “big sister” all her life and it was a little hard for her to accept another cat doing something for her. Mewsette adored her, and watched over her, though Cookie never thought she needed it. And Mewsette is so big!
