From July 3, 2011, Mr. Sunshine isn’t really watching fireworks, he’s watching a moth inside the swag lamp, but it’s cute to think so.
Actually all five black cats disappeared as the neighbors lit firecrackers now and then, and later Carnegie’s fireworks lit up the sky a distance away (on July 3). Kelly hid in the entertainment center, but Cookie, who is pretty deaf, stayed on her cabinet in the kitchen.
I have a bi-fold door to the basement, and a small rectangle cut out of one lower corner for them to access the basement. I walked into the kitchen after the fireworks were over and suddenly basement cats where flowing out of the hole in the door—all five of them came up one after another with big round eyes, ready to run back down at the slightest “bang”. I gave everyone treats and catnip.

You’ve seen me use daily sketches for new designs for merchandise, but I’ve also used daily photos. The back story to this one is that I used Mr. Sunshine’s silhouette to create the feline silhouette in my holiday card entitled “Star of Wonder”.
Yes, it was very fun to isolate all those furs and whiskers to that his silhouette would look authentic!
