Daily Photo: Disgruntled Supervisors

Bella and Mr. Sunshine.

Supervisor cats are highly displeased. They want to nap, but still have to snoopervise me. Not sure what to do.

 Oh, the catching up…

I have so many photos that I shared on Instagram while I was working on my website and making stuff, and I don’t want to add some of them into a post, so I may do an extra photo post for a while. That way I can catch up on photos I’ve missed from previous years too. But, I’m pretty sure I’m back on the ball here. I made myself stop making things!

The Purrfect Box

The purr-fect cardboard box makes for some interesting sleeping arrangements on a chilly afternoon. Giuseppe is sleeping on top of Sunshine and they are both sleeping on top of Basil, whose nose and tail you can see under Giuseppe’s chin.From December 4.

We Don’t Know What Happened to the Kittens, 2014

We don’t know what happened to the kittens.

“We don’t know what happened to the kittens,” say two black cats with, I clearly think, guilty expressions.

Smokie and Bella look as if someone deflated them and laid them on the cabinet. What am I to think with two robust-looking adult ninjas sitting right there?

Likely, the kittens played a little too hard, and fell down for a nap where they stood. In a few minutes they’ll be back up and ready to wrestle, chase fleecy mousies and packing peanuts and carefully observe the birds and squirrels.

“They were like this when we got here!” say Sunshine and Mewsette.

They were like this when we got here.

Three Loaves, and the Sister Who Arranged Them, 2013

The boys are organized and very presentable. But that wasn’t how they started out. They were, as the brothers tend to be after their morning romp, wrestling matches and baths, rather carelessly strewn about on their blanket.

The boys are a little disorganized.

Mewsette entered the room and tried to enjoy a good scratch on some pieces of cardboard, but their presentation was too distracting. Over she came and shuffled them around until they suited her idea of presentable.

Now look at the first photo again, and see what a good job Mewsette did.

And December 3 must be a day for loafing—see the photo I posted on this day in 2012, below.

Four Loaves, 2012

Four Loaves.

As you’ve seen, they typically cuddle, but here they are looking perhaps a little dissatisfied with their lot. They have a nice soft, warm bed on a rainy December day, what more could they want? I never figured it out, but later they were cuddled quite sweetly; you’ll see that sometime soon in a Wordless Wednesday, perhaps.

I decided to have a little fun with them in Photoshop, so I applied the cutout filter which makes it appear with a Sunday comics kind of look. They blend together, but keep some of the highlights, and you can see a few eyes looking at you.

And then yet a little more simplified. By the way, it’s Mewsette, Giuseppe, Bean and Sunshine.

2011: Watching the Kids Go to School

Waiting for the next kids to walk down the street.

Giuseppe and Jelly Bean were this week’s Block Watch Cats. Not only kids going to school, but neighbors going to work, then people who park on the street to catch the bus, are all carefully observed and remarked upon by whomever is on Block Watch Cat duty. On the weekend, they wait in vain.

Bright red male cardinals usually stand out in any landscape, but this guy is clever, landing on a bed of leaves including bright crimson leaves from the burning bush.

Holiday Gift Bags from Portraits of Animals!

Holiday Gift Bags from Portraits of Animals!

From the first time I received a gift bag with feline artwork on it, I could picture my art on a gift bag. I’ve tried a few different methods and finally found one that works well: printing my art to size on a commercial-grade label and buffing it permanently onto the bag. The art can only be on the front because of the way the bag folds, but so many bag colors and styles exist and that keeps them lively. Read more and order.
