Daily Photo: A Sure Sign of Autumn

five black cats on bed
An empty desk downstairs and all five cats on my bed in the sun,

No, it’s not migrating birds or leaves turning color or the first chill nights when I have to close all the windows. It’s when I’m working at my desk in my office downstairs and realize I am completely alone. There are no cats at all on my desk.

I tiptoe upstairs and turn the corner on the landing to look in my bedroom, filling with sun through the window, and I find what my cats have deserted me for. You know how it is when you see your cats happy and warm. I smile, add a few more photos of them to the pile of photos I already have from years gone by, and go back to work. It’s tradition—even before they were all related the bed on a sunny autumn or winter afternoon was always the place to nap. Now until spring, this is where I can find them on sunny days. Yes, autumn is truly here. For now, no more torture by cuteness.

From the top, clockwise, it’s Mr. Sunshine, Bean and Mewsette, Giuseppe and Mimi.

    Here in our house the sign is that the cats starts napping in the bathroom because of the warm floor. And yes, having any time at all in the bathroom all alone ended a few days ago:)
    Have a great day today,

      So do I, Tabbies. Sometimes I know they’re up there, and I sneak up once or twice just to look.
