From the Archives: Another Winter Afternoon

Another Winter Afternoon

An afternoon in early February 2008 featuring my tortie girls, both having experienced at least part of a winter on the streets, curl up on on a nice soft, warm bed, nestling among the pillows. Kelly is curled in her preliminary ball, immediately post-bath, and will curl tighter and tighter as she settles deeper into sleep. Cookie lounges between my bed pillows, watching the snow fall.

Years ago I saw a small print of a painting of two calico cats curled back to back on a bed, a fairly realistic watercolor, the cat on the right with her head down, sleeping, the cat on the left with her head up but squinty, sleepy. The bed was covered with a faded antique quilt, the room spare. I have remembered that for over 20 years, and it continues to be an inspiration. This, in a way, reminds me of it.

Looks like a painting to me.

      Janet, also very sweet to me. I lost Cookie a year ago Sunday, and Kelly in August, but I remember them like this.
