Daily Photo Reprise: Those Luminous Eyes, 2010

Those Luminous Eyes

We’ve all used this quote, but living in a house with five black cats it’s abundantly clear. Mewsette and Giuseppe give you the full force of their green and gold eyes.

Who can believe there is no soul behind those luminous eyes? ~Théophile Gautier

Gautier also had several black cats as well as white Turkish Angoras and an array of tabbies. I’ll have to do a literary profile of him as another cat lover some time, but suffice it to say he loved cats and wrote extensively, poetically, about the ones in his life. My French is not what it used to be, but I’ll look up La Ménagerie Intime where he writes about daily life including many of the famous quotes about cats which are attributed to him.

    So lovely. Mom met two young black male cats yesterday when we delivered our goodies for the Santa Kitty Toy Hop. She said she would have loved to bring them home. We love black kitties at our house. Happy Holidays! Hope you will join us tomorrow for our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. Ho, ho, ho, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
