Daily Photo: Black and Red

Who is that mysterious black kitty behind the red fringe?

Hmmm, who is that mysterious kitty peeking out from under that elegant red fringe? We may have to guess because this kitty apparently isn’t talking!

We’ll just have to guess.

It is actually Mewsette, who decided to see what she would look like with a touch of rich red, which is actually the fringe on one of my skirts hanging on the door. I think she looks pretty sweet!

What other photos did I post on or around this date?


Morning Watch, 2013

Emeraude enjoys the leafy view out the window on a mild October morning. She loves her windowsill. If you look closely you can just see her whiskers.

Sometimes the window screen annoys me, but in this case I really like the effect of the dapples of light with the screen pattern!

Preoccupied, 2013

Do you see the little bird on the edge of the barrel? That’s all it took to assemble the entire family and keep them occupied for whole minutes this morning—both the actual bird and the possibility of that bird returning after it left.

If the photo was a little more clear, you might see the bird sticking its little tongue out at this eager group of cats.

After this strenuous and emotional workout to start the day, they were back on the rocker.

Sunday Cat Blogging, 2012

I am losing this one.

I have an old computer in my kitchen, tucked into the shelves along one wall, so now I can spend even more time on the computer, and so can the kids. Actually, I do a good bit of work on it in addition to reading e-mail, posting blog entries and listening to YouTube, but this is the result of a Sunday morning trying to write a blog post. The computer is off to the right and I have the keyboard and mouse on the cabinet. I started out with the cabinet all to myself, but one by one everyone joined me—there are four here, but when I tiptoed off to get my camera Mr. Sunshine followed and I couldn’t convince him to get back into position in the only empty spot at the top right. The others weren’t affected at all by my activity, and you can see my keyboard is hanging perilously on the edge. It’s Mimi, Mewsette, Giuseppe’s butt, and Jelly Bean. Blame them for me not finishing my post today. I should have just posted their photos as soon as I them.

Below, Giuseppe and Jelly Bean try to use mind control to make the keyboard work so they can send a message to you.

This Way and That Way, 2011

Three black cats, one tortie, different interests.

Black cats look one way, tortie cat looks the other.

Block watch kitties. Mr. Sunshine, Mimi and Jelly Bean are watching something on the front sidewalk while Kelly watches something in the front yard.

Black cats leave their tails hanging down from the shelf, Kelly keeps hers in a neat corkscrew against her hip.

Oops, Mimi is tempted by a glance in the opposite direction. Boys look left, girls look right.

Such is my day.

Kitten on the Keyboard, 2010

Kitten on the Keyboard

Kelly demonstrates how well the keyboard shelf suits her needs for a nap, just the right size and the nice, soft thingies covering the laminated wood make it really comfortable.

And there’s still room for the keyboard—you can see it in the darkness behind Kelly—so I really shouldn’t complain about multi-purposing my desk.

Kelly is hardly a kitten at 16, but she’s always had a bright and active personality and has never lost her girlish figure. She came to me when she was about four, and except for a certain angularity about her face today she looks the same as when she arrived.

She and Cookie take turns tormenting me—well, I think it’s torment because I’d like to get my work done—by finding their comfort spots in my workspace. These spots are rarely convenient for me, and on top of that I then need to photograph them in action, so I get even less done at that moment. And, of course, they aren’t the only ones to perpetrate this torment on me.

But I can’t imagine my desk without generations of cats all over it. It’s one of the reasons I have a cordless mouse and keyboard…when they take over, I can move and still work…sort of.
