Daily Photo: Five for Dinner, Please

five black cats eating
Giuseppe, Mewsette, Sunshine, Bean and Mimi have dinner!

Someone was glad to see me come home after a long day! Mostly because they wanted dinner, but they performed so nicely for their food.

They rarely line up on the cabinet anymore, but when they do they neatly line up in order of size while they eat. And they are all eating standing up, possibly because there isn’t a whole lot of room up there.

I’m glad I always have my camera handy because I never would have gotten this if I’d had to go and get it! Their birthday, July 26, is coming soon as well as Mimi’s Homecoming Day and they day they all arrived here, July 29, so you’ll be seeing more of them through the rest of July, including lots of baby pictures. Whatever they do, I think they are the five most beautiful black cats in all the world. Read more about this wonderful family of black cats.

  • We know we are a week late in commenting on this post but had to anyway. Mom would drop dead in her tracks if we were ever that well-behaved at meal time. Four of us eat on the floor in close proximity to each other, but the other four of us are all spread out. Mom loves to come visiting so she can get her black cat fix, and this was a whopper one.

    • Kitties Blue, They’re all related so it’s a little different, but even when my household was not related at all they didn’t mind at least being in the same room with each other. One of these days I’ll scan those photos and post them too!

  • This is a wonderful picture!!!! I managed to catch all five of my boys together the other day at the window but the were randomly placed. There is something so lovely about seeing them lined up together for their meal 🙂

    • Sparky, they never cease to amaze me. How could I be so lucky?

  • Oh what a great picture! How do you tell them apart? They sure are a cute bunch of kitties!

    • Ann, I’ve known them since they were three days old and I photograph and sketch them all the time–I probably know their details better than my own face!

    • Tabbies, they was all lined up and focused on eating because they were getting one of their favorite raw meals–white fish and chicken! Gooooood stuff!

    • Island Cats, every once in a while they reward me with one of these–I can hardly take my eyes off them!

  • I love seeing them all lined up together – that way you can see the subtle differences in their size and shape.

    • Vicki, it’s true, even things like the shapes of their backs and the slight color and texture variances in their fur.

  • Fine capture! They look great. The black boy at home could compete in the beauty arena, but I know that for you these are unbeatable. 🙂

    • Maru. each black cat is beautiful, but five together, all lined up, believe me, it’s breathtaking!

  • How sweet they all look!

  • That is a rare sight! How difficult it is to get cats aligned!!

    I am not having any trouble voting. I do it through facebook!

    • Carolyn, every once in a while they align themselves, and I just have to be ready. Glad you’re not having any trouble–I’ll let others know too!
