Daily Photo: Addition to the Cat Collection

Two new additions to my cat collection.

Now Giuseppe, why would you want to be one of those kitties who just sits in the case all day every day? Or did you want to set them free?

I still don’t know which was the motive, though the original idea was Mr. Sunshine’s—I missed the photo of him crouching in the same spot and looking extremely proud. Whoever it was, someone managed to open the door, perhaps Bean when jumping up to the top of the wardrobe, pressing his foot on the glass door which has a pressure-release magnet: push on it and let go and it pops open, press to shut it again. Or Mr. Sunshine may have figured it out and that was why he was so proud. I typically have a strip of tape across the bottoms of both doors to hold them shut, but apparently I took it off the last time I changed the bulb and didn’t replace it.

Mr. Sunshine jumped down when I got my camera because he likes to watch what I do with it. Giuseppe took his place. Bean watched it all from above.

That shelf holds about one-quarter of all the little cat figurines I have, and because many have sentimental ties and most were gifts, I like to keep them in a safe place. This was for years packed away in a box after a few had been broken by my banshees after I’d moved here. My sister passed this huge entertainment unit on to me (this end unit is about one-quarter of the whole thing) and I finally had a safe place for display, and a little extra light in the room on a dark day or at night.

Because of the light, it’s quite cozy in there. You can imagine it’s a prize place to find one’s self on a winter afternoon. But I think I prefer my real cats out here with me.
