This Sink Matches My Eyes

Mewsette discovers the perfect accessory for herself—that mint green bathroom sink! Of all the Fantastic Four, her eyes are the greenest, with very little of the yellow characteristic of their mom. The others’ eyes look distinctly amber when they are in the sink, but Mousse models her new-found accessory with her usual quiet happiness.

Typically playing the role of Basement Cat, Mewsette drinks out of the sink with the rest of them but doesn’t usually hang out there. When I go down into the basement, she usually drops out of some overhead hangout or pops out of one of my boxes of stuff and hurries over to greet me—”Welcome to my basement, isn’t it nice?”

This may be because she thinks her brothers are just plain stupid, judging by some of her expressions; well, you know how boys can be when they get together. But she cuddles and plays with them often enough that it’s probably not that she doesn’t prefer their company, just that she waits in the basement for the next silly mouse to enter.

But I’m glad she’s found a happy spot upstairs where I can see her round green eyes and plushy rich black fur all the more often.

And I am glad to report that after spending much of her first three years as Basement Cat, Mewsette now happily hangs with the rest of us upstairs for a good part of the day. It’s funny how their habits change as their first few years.

      Teri, I had no idea when I got that vintage green sink how well it would work for my kitties–and Mewsette has the greenest eyes of all of them.

    Chris, Mousse is extra special beautiful! The boys really get more attention, but Mewsette has always had the most beautiful face.

    Tamar, don’t worry, keep it for the ones you really like–and thanks for reposting “Cat Ears”. I have more photos than I know what to do with, and more every day. I have a big festival here the weekend of BlogPaws, so I’ll have to pass. Let us know what happens there!

    Marg, perhaps if I lounge in the sink and totally captivate my human she’ll go back to your blog and copy out that cat treat recipe! Looked yummy to me!

    Amby, there must be a gene in this family line for bathroom sink rest & recreation. I did notice your boys have those wonderful warm amber eyes like Mr. Sunshine, and in fact they must also have the same father (Mimi was at least a little discriminating).

    That sink does match your eyes. The color of the sink is terrific an so are your eyes. That basement sounds like a great place to stay to get a little privacy. Great picture.
    Have a super day
