Daily Photo: Finally Clean Dishtowels

Today’s catpile.

We had a massive cat pileup in the kitchen today, hard to tell what happened, all that fur.

It was a warm kitchen on a cold winter morning as I did some baking and all five gathered in the sun until it disappeared and at the windows to watch the birds. I brought up a pile of dishtowels to fold—they weren’t even out of the dryer and warm but it didn’t matter, they were today’s cat magnet. Mr. Sunshine was the last to join and just didn’t fit, but found the basket with its newly-washed lining to be more than acceptable.

They were clumped together so tightly I could hardly tell them apart.

Later, even after Mimi and I had gone outdoors again and I’d done more laundry, they persisted in the middle of the kitchen, watching birds on the deck.

  • Bernadette, sorry I’ve been MIA:

    Happy Nu Yr!
    May 2014 be a sparkler for all of you guys. Be well and stay fluffy.

    P.S. To whom did Santa bring the darling yellow and pink polka-dotted necklace?

    • Maureen Chatwin

      It is Mama Mimi. She went outside with Bernadette .

          I saw her again today in ‘Not enough baskets’ with her pretty necklace.

    • Meg, Santa Mama bought it for her at the Pittsburgh Pet Expo when I was a vendor there in November. It’s hand made by a local small family business and we decided we’d try it out and let everyone know what we thought. We love it! I’ll be visiting the “manufacturing” studio in the next couple of months to review how they make them.
