The Four Housecats of the Apocalypse will surely come to take your soul if you abuse animals at any time. If you happen to see four dark purple cats riding on a storm of purple haze…despite the fact that I’m mixing metaphors and classic rock songs, it’s a bad thing to abuse animals. Should be a no-brainer, and I can’t imagine how individuals of the same species as me perpetrate abuse and even enjoy it, but some people just don’t understand this is wrong. We really have to speak up when we hear about it and speak out against it. And we’ll let Mr. Sunshine, Giuseppe, Mewsette and Jelly Bean set you straight.
Below is the original photo and text for Basement Cats Have Come for My Soul.
I always knew the day would come. You can’t live with five black cats and not know there is a reason they’ve chosen you. Don’t they look a little somber? At least their little mom was not involved in the action.
Mimi was there, just on a different table top, and not at all concerned with what her children were doing.
Actually, they’ve come to observe me working, again. They are on the worktable/drafting table in the corner of my newly restored/renovated/cleaned/organized studio, which I have apparently placed there with no obstructions just for their benefit. In fact, I’ve carried out the entire month-long activity for their amusement and benefit. I’m glad I could be of service to them.
This room was always the “spare cat room” until it just got too crowded, the reason for the newness; in fact, I carried the Big Four and Mimi into this room in a box almost four years ago, and the drafting table where I had their big cage was in the same place it is now. Perhaps they remember it, but I doubt that. I think that’s just my human sentimentality!
I was a disappointed the photo was somewhat blurry, so I adjusted contrast, enhanced colors, ran it through a few fun filters in Photoshop and came up with something that used the soft edges and luridly described the situation.
