Caturday Art: Coincidence of Color

Coincidence of Color

Mewsette carefully watches my green apples, and I carefully watch the coincidence of color between the apples and her eyes.

True, I did desaturate everything else in the image to be certain it was glowingly obvious.

What other photos did I feature around this date?


Pointing the Way, 2013

The boys point the way, as they sleep through the afternoon.

Not the best photo, but an interesting shape the three make. They settled here in the studio first thing this morning, and basically stayed there for the next five hours. This was the most interesting position they settled into, Bean stretched out in the center, Sunshine and Giuseppe curled on either side, kind of in support. I couldn’t get a better photo because Mimi was on my lap and I couldn’t stand up, and if I had and moved the door a bit, they would have gotten up.

Later, I placed a box in the bathroom to pack things into and Bean packed himself into it. Emeraude looked at him—I think she had the idea to get herself into the box—and they had a little silent conversation.

Then she decided to walk all around the box and rub her face all over it while Bean purred loudly and squinted at her. She’s getting along just fine with them all, no more hissing, lots of nose-touching. Bean is so excessively charming I find it hard to keep my hand off him, but let him work on the lady.

Last night in the studio we had a visitor—Emeraude! Normally she stays in the bathroom even when the door is open for hours, but last night I saw a black cat walk in out of the corner of my eye, then realized all five were already in the room. She busied herself investigating everything then she found me.

Emeraude wants attention.

Up on her paws she asked for attention, literally and loudly, but learned the indignant head turn quickly so I’d be sure to get a bad photo of her. I had the feeling she’d improve this week, but I’m both surprised and pleased she’s feeling so well. I still see traces of her conditions but the constant vigilance of both of us is keeping problems to a minimum. She is more vocal, more social, and more friendly with the other cats. I guess a near-death experience will do that. Perhaps sometime soon I’ll see her curled up with them in the studio.

Don’t take my picture, pay attention to me!

Kelly On a Rainy Day, 2011

Kelly on a rainy day.

Many years ago Kelly lived with a stray and feral colony of cats in a neighborhood in Pittsburgh, and I sometimes wonder if that’s what she ponders when she looks out the window as she does here. She seems to have carried a lot of trauma with her, and while she loves to look outside and sit by open doors and windows, she has absolutely no interest at all in going out there. Not that she needs to worry about that. I love to let my rescues know they are inside now. Someday I’ll have to get her to tell her story.
