Daily Photo Reprise: Five for Dinner, Please
five black cats eating
Giuseppe, Mewsette, Sunshine, Bean and Mimi have dinner!

Someone was glad to see me come home after a long day! Mostly because they wanted dinner, but they performed so nicely for their food.

They rarely line up on the cabinet anymore, but when they do they neatly line up in order of size while they eat. And they are all eating standing up, possibly because there isn’t a whole lot of room up there.

I’m glad I always have my camera handy because I never would have gotten this if I’d had to go and get it! Their birthday, July 26, is coming soon as well as Mimi’s Homecoming Day and they day they all arrived here, July 29, so you’ll be seeing more of them through the rest of July, including lots of baby pictures. Whatever they do, I think they are the five most beautiful black cats in all the world. Read more about this wonderful family of black cats.

Window Kitty: An Evening Nap
Camouflaged!
Camouflaged!

This spotted kitty is pretty well camouflaged against this lace curtain. I walked to the library for a performance in the music hall the other night and I always see interesting things on my way there and back. And what a bonus—a kitty napping in a window, and one with a pretty lace curtain and a peeling sash for extra interest! That’s the sort of thing, all the details, the different patterns, that make me think in black and white, so here she is.

Then she stretched out on her side and laid down, and you’d barely know there’s a kitty there, except all the flowers in the curtain are celebrating!

Where did kitty go?

Here is what she looked like as I walked past the house. I think this will make a nice painting some day.

Kelly With a Head Full of Numbers, 2011

Kelly naps on my desk using my calculator for a pillow. I don’t ask.

Perhaps that is what caused her to fall asleep on the job last night as I worked late at my desk. A head full of numbers works that way for me.

Do you see some similarity with her sleeping position and that of the cat on the mug where I keep my pens? It’s a 1991 Suzy Becker cartoon of a cat sleeping on a desk next to a computer and says “Make Your Own Hours”. Well, I guess we do, but I never realized purchasing that mug might be prophetic!

Kelly’s been spending time upstairs in the studio where it’s cooler and quieter, two things she prefers, and she can always supervise my work and drink my paint water, two of her favorite activities. But I had some projects for my computer downstairs and she got lonely up there on her cool marble windowsill and decided to join us down in the hot office on the messy desk. I was glad to see her come down and spend some time with us here.

Later, Mr. Sunshine joined her, and they were ear to ear for a while. I’m always certain they are planning something, any two or more cats, when they do this, but Kelly? Well, perhaps she’ll learn some new games and grow a little more comfortable with the kids. They really do try with Kelly, and when she’s feeling relaxed, or when she’s fast asleep, things are fine between her and the kids.

All six are on my desk or the adjoining windowsills right now.

    Such a cute photo! That fur looks so soft. I can see why that is a popular photo – it expresses the peace that cats can bring to a home.

      Robin, it’s especially sweet because Ophelia was once considered feral and could not be returned to her neighborhood so she came here as a “last chance”. It took some time but she’s done very well!

      Now that I have fosters mingling with them they don’t line up like that for meals, but it amazes me how they do when they get the chance.

    “Oh my goodness” is just that! I like the synchronized eating program you have going on there … same “costumes” and everything 🙂

      I think I’ll changer her name to “Oh My Goodness” because that’s what I always say when I see her. Those black cats are a family–and soon it will be their birthday!
