Daily Sketch: Pink Towel

Mr. Sunshine quietly watches out the door from the vantage point of the stool where I sit to put my shoes on (when there’s not a cat sleeping there), and where felines greet humans at the door. The pink towel is, well, a temporary air-block for really cold nights which I hang over the area of the door frame where the cold air seeps in…and someday I will replace the doorframe, but for now, the pink towel gets tossed on the stool by the door, providing a wonderful place for kitties to sleep. And model.

Kelly balances on three legs while she stretches to wash the fourth leg, all the way out to her toes.

    This is just beautiful! We love the contrast between the black cat and the pink towel.

      Thanks, Christine! Mr. Sunshine surely knows how to make a statement.
