Daily Photo: Sienna Takes Over My Desk

Sienna is pretty pleased with herself.

Sienna has stolen all my pens and trashed my desk, and now she’s going to have a nap on top of all of it. You can see by her tail that she is very pleased with herself.

 

Photos from years past.

Overfloweth, 2018

My cats runneth over.
My cats runneth over.

They started out curled up on the pillows, but as the day warmed and the sun came around to that window my cats runneth over with relaxation.

Before that, however, they were sleeping on the pillows with their paws all tangled. I was a little surprised—this is Sienna’s safe place and she spends most of the day on the pillows. Basil always liked it too, though, and as you’ll see below she was also joined by several others. Sienna likes Basil, for the most part, and Basil likes everyone.

Tangled paws.

Then even more tangled.

Mostly paws.

Then a sleepy double high-five.

Three Heads Together…2017
When these three put their heads together, I worry.
When these three put their heads together, I worry.

Sunshine, Giuseppe and Jelly Bean can get themselves in a lot of trouble putting their heads together and trying to think out some plan.

And sometimes they just fall asleep.

What it looked like from behind, though.

Not Camouflaged, 2015
Mimi is not well camouflaged.

Mimi may think she’s camouflaged behind this rusted flower pot, and I’ll let her think that

We had our “time out” and I photographed yet more flowers while Mimi explored under the deck, which did not make for good photos since it’s dark and so is she, but she enjoyed herself and apparently read all the latest news that’s not published in public on the forsythia, if you get what I mean.

Below she bears that same expression she had on the upstairs window a few weeks ago, typical of Mimi when someone is bothering her sunshine.

Then Boo, it started raining! So I’m sharing a few more pretty photos from yesterday. Everything is suddenly so colorful!

I promise I’ll share photos of the other house panthers too! Below, from last year, Mimi has a heart to heart with Giuseppe.

Feline Conversation, 2014
two black cats
Much being said between.

I was enchanted by this little exchange between Mimi and Giuseppe. Often we watch them and think they are cute and affectionate with each other, but I know that each move, each touch, each gesture, eye movement, whisker swish, like a ballet, nothing is wasted, each has meaning in the exchange between the two. This conversation was so direct, Mimi sitting atop her box like the queen visited by her son the prince, or like the goddess visited by her worshipper, but face to face, a look, then a touch from Giuseppe to Mimi, then a glance, then a touch by Mimi for Giuseppe, then a pause, and on. At the end they looked at me as if they had no idea I was there, as they may not have.

Perhaps I’ve been reading a little too much Rumi lately, but I pulled my copy of Coleman Barks’s translations of Rumi’s poems entitled The Glance: Songs of Soul Meeting, “the glance,” this mystical experience that occurs in the meeting of the eyes of the lover and the beloved, parent and child, friend and soul mate, a little explored theme in Rumi’s poetry. From The Glance, a portion of the poem “What is the Heart”:

What is the heart? It is not human
and it is not imaginary. I call it

you…

Below I have a slideshow of nine photos from their exchange.

      Then Sienna can scare the Secret Service by putting her tail straight in the air and suddenly racing off in a different direction, like Socks did.
